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.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
