Joe Biden, 80, Once Attacked a 63-Year-Old Opponent for Being Too Old for Office

Joe Biden once lambasted a political opponent for being “too old for office” despite being 20 years younger than the president is now.

Biden, 80, who barely knows what planet he is on, is now running to stay president.

In 1972, Biden, a 29-year-old local Delaware councilman, ran a campaign for Senate and repeatedly launched attacks on incumbent Republican Sen. Cale Boggs for “being too old;” he was 63 at the time.

Boggs was a whopping 23 years younger than Biden will be at the end of his second term, if he wins in 2024.

Biden’s campaign approach in the 1970s was described as mocking Boggs for being a “Dear old dad,” The New York Post noted.

Biden even bragged to local Democrats that his rival had told him how important it was “for youth to be involved in politics.”

The confident Biden knew he could win because he could tell that “Cale doesn’t want to run.”

“He’s lost that old twinkle in his eye he used to have,” Biden said, according to a Delaware Evening Journal report from the time.

Biden’s campaign was focused on attacking Boggs for being “too old to understand modern life.”

“To Cale Boggs an unfair tax was the 1948 poll tax. To Joe Biden an unfair tax is the 1972 income tax,” according to one newspaper.

What is also ironic is the media accused Boggs of being too concerned about Russia while ignoring crime in America, which Biden is repeatedly called out for today.

“One of the biggest differences between Cale Boggs and Joe Biden is the things they worry about,” the radio ad said, according to CNN.

“In Cale Boggs’ day when Stalin ruled, Americans had visions of the Russian soldiers in our streets. In Joe Biden’s day, Americans have visions of American criminals in our streets,” it said.

In 2023, Biden’s age is a big issue for Republicans and Democrats.

As The Daily Fetched reported on Tuesday, former White House doctor Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Md.) has demanded Biden take a cognitive test or drop out of his recently announced 2024 presidential race.

Jackson renewed his calls for the president to take a mental evaluation in the wake of seeking reelection.

In a letter obtained by The New York Post, Jackson wrote:

“We call on you to either resign immediately and renounce your bid for reelection or submit to a clinically validated cognitive screening assessment and make those results available to the public,” the letter, which is addressed to Biden, says.

Jackson also insisted Joe Biden must take a cognitive test due to his gaffes and abysmal poll numbers, all of which show Biden’s mental health is under scrutiny.

The irony.
