The disaster that is the withdrawal from Afghanistan coupled with other innumerable debacles that Joe Biden has singlehandedly precipitated in just seven months should not come as a surprise to anyone who has paid attention to his career. His fifty years as a politician is littered with a litany of failures due to unforced errors, countless flip-flops, plagiarism, cupidity, mendacity, and demagoguery all brought about by an overweening sense of infallibility and egocentrism. Yet he was chosen by the current ruling class to be the figurehead in their devious scheme to defeat Donald Trump by any means possible in the 2020 election. Their hubris is their downfall as it will not be Donald Trump or any other Republican but Joe Biden that will ultimately relegate this arrogant cabal to the dustbin of American history. The current ruling elites were well aware of the failings of their fellow member of the fraternity. There is little doubt that Joe Biden is suffering from mildly progressive cognitive decline brought about by the aging process, but that should not be used as an excuse for what are his lifelong character flaws.
