A recent report from Axios suggests that President Biden’s age is a concern not only among many Americans but also among his close advisers. They have conceded that his age has “diminished his energy” and “limited his schedule.” It is not just Republicans who have expressed concerns about his age, but also some Democrats.
The White House’s behavior seems to indicate that they worry over these criticisms and take steps to protect Biden from embarrassing moments. This raises the question of how much he can do and how effective he can be in his role as president. Axios concludes that this is likely to be the most Rose Garden-centered presidential campaign in nearly half a century.
The bottom line is that President Biden’s age is a liability, and it remains to be seen how effective he can be in his role as president, given his age-related limitations.
