Pelosi and Biden Advisors Set the Stage for Biden to Drop Out

All of a sudden, the Democrats are changing their tune and admitting to Biden's cognitive decline. Are they prepping for a new candidate?

The Democrats are engaging in a high-stakes dance, and it seems the music may be about to stop for Joe Biden. The party’s own stalwart, Nancy Pelosi, who once staunchly defended Biden’s mental acuity, has abruptly changed her tune, raising eyebrows across the political spectrum. 

After dismissing concerns about Biden’s cognitive health as mere blips following a “bad night” at a debate, Pelosi’s recent remarks to MSNBC signal a seismic shift. “I think it’s a legitimate question to say, is this an episode or is this a condition?” she questioned, directly referring to Biden’s mental state. This pivot comes amid whispers of a crisis meeting between Biden and Obama, adding fuel to the fire of speculation.

What’s particularly telling is the narrative unfolding within the Democratic Party itself. Reports from insiders, including alarming details in The New York Times, portray a President struggling increasingly with mental lapses, confusion, and fatigue so severe that naps had to be scheduled into his debate preparations. These revelations are not minor; they paint a picture of a leader whose faculties are failing him at critical moments—during public appearances and private meetings alike. 

The shifting public acknowledgment of Biden‘s condition by top Democrats like Pelosi might be seen as a strategy to cushion a more dramatic move: Biden stepping down from the 2024 race. Could this be a calculated attempt to slowly condition the public and the party for such an outcome? It seems increasingly likely. If true, it reflects a desperate bid by the Democrats to regain control of a narrative that’s slipping away amid visible signs of Biden’s decline. 

The party that once vehemently denied any suggestion of Biden’s cognitive issues now appears to be laying the groundwork for a retreat, perhaps hoping to save face before the inevitable becomes too glaring to ignore. What’s next for the Democrats? Only time will tell, but one thing is clear: the conversation about Biden‘s fitness for office has moved from the fringes to the forefront of national discourse.
