N.Y. Post: Biden is not fit for president if he’s not fit to prosecute

Biden is not fit for president if he’s not fit to prosecute

James Bovard

President Biden is not guilty because he is hopelessly clueless about his own life and career.

So how the hell is he able to be president?

Special counsel Robert Hur, who concluded Biden “willfully retained and disclosed” classified information, which “risked serious damage to America’s national security.”

If anyone else did this, they would be federal crimes.

But Biden cannot be convicted of a “felony that requires a mental state of willfulness,” the special counsel concluded — apparently because Biden’s mind is gone.

Uncle Joe is little more than “an elderly man with a poor memory,” according to the report.

He doesn’t remember when he was vice president.

Doesn’t remember when his son Beau died.

He told his ghostwriter he had classified information, but later claimed to the special counsel he didn’t really mean “classified.”

Biden doesn’t mean a lot of what he says, as evidenced by all the times his own administration contradicts him.

Talking to his ghostwriter 2017, Biden was “painfully slow,” and had a hard time remembering events, the special counsel notes.

In 2023, his memory was even “worse.”

Imagine what it will be like in 2027 if he wins re-election!

This is devastating stuff, but the administration was reportedly more worried that Hur’s report would include jolting photos of classified documents recklessly strewn around Biden’s home and garage.

And hey, it does!

But who amongst us has not stored notebooks full of top-secret information underneath their TV, as Biden did in Delaware?

The report noted classified Afghanistan documents were found “in a badly damaged box in the garage, near a collapsed dog crate, a dog bed, a Zappos box, an empty bucket, a broken lamp wrapped with duct tape, potting soil, and synthetic firewood.”

The report concludes that if Biden was prosecuted for violating the law, “his attorneys would emphasize these limitations in his recall.”

But how can Biden be fit for the presidency if he is unfit to prosecute?

If Biden is re-elected, should the official oath of office be modified to promise to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States . . . on days that I remember I am President”?

Biden’s legal team denounced the Hur report for “investigative excess” that resulted in “trashing” Biden “with extraneous, unfounded and irrelevant critical commentary.”

But the special counsel did not take an oath to hide Biden’s debility from the American people.

The 388-page report provides more insights into the commander in chief than perhaps Hur intended.

Congressional Republicans should demand to see the full transcript and video of the special counsel’s five-hour interview with Biden.

There were likely other Biden blackouts as bad or worse as those revealed in the report.

The White House compounded the damage from the report with a hastily called press conference that was dominated by Biden screaming at reporters.

“My memory is fine!” he asserted.

The president then astonished the audience by claiming Mexico’s president is in charge of controlling the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip.

When a female reporter asked about voters’ concern about his age, Biden finger-pointed and growled: “That is your judgment! That is your judgment! That is not the judgment of the press!”

He took no personal responsibility for the violations of federal law recounted in the report.

He angrily derided what he called the report’s “extraneous material.”

The president again played the Beau card to exonerate himself — or at least get sympathy.

“How in the hell dare he raise that question,” Biden raged of the special counsel. “I don’t need anyone to remind me when he passed away.”

He declared, “I wear since the day he died the rosary he got Our Lady of…” and then his voice faded off, perhaps because he forgot the church’s name.

Biden proclaimed, “I am the most qualified person in this country to be president of the United States.”

But there was no applause from the White House press corps, some of whose members had wondered if Biden would announce his resignation that night.

Even Biden’s allies were bailing ship, per the NBC News headline: “’A nightmare’: Special counsel’s assessment of Biden’s mental fitness triggers Democratic panic.”

In a speech to the House Democratic Caucus Thursday afternoon, Biden claimed victory because the special counsel “reach[ed] the conclusion . . . that there are no charges that should be brought in this case.”

Does Biden not even realize he has just been certified mentally incompetent for office?

Nixon was famous for asserting, “I am not a crook.”

Will Biden achieve equal notoriety for proclaiming, “I am not mentally incompetent”?

Or perhaps this proclamation from Thursday night will be his epitaph: “I know what the hell I’m doing.”
