In a choice between senility or socialism, Democrat primary voters appear to be falling in line behind the former. I guess that’s a good thing. But, questions about Joe Biden cognitive decline have been raised for a long time now, and it’s hard to understand how the Democratic Party settled on Crazy Joe as their safe choice for runnig against Donald Trump.

In the past few weeks alone, we’ve seen Joe Biden forget where he is, what he’s running for, who his wife and sister are, Barack Obama’s name, and the words to the Declaration of Independence. The gaffes just keep piling up.

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume believes that Biden is  “is losing his memory and is getting senile,” and he is certainly not alone in that assessment.

On Tuesday night, Biden won big once again, but there was a moment during his victory speech that was concerning.

“These are all people been working like the devil to try to get us elected as the, uh…so I want to thank you,” he said.

Did Biden forget what office he’s running for… again? It sure looks that way.

How does one watch this and not be concerned? Especially when you consider the other recent gaffes that call into question Biden’s cognitive health.

Worse yet, there was a another moment when Biden appeared to slur his speech while saying “education.”

This is the guy Democrats are likely gonna have run against President Trump.

Good luck with that.
