Biden Bombs Debate as Trump Stands Strong, Dems Consider Alternatives

Joe Biden’s debate performance resembled a late-night infomercial for cold medicine. Within minutes, the struggle to string coherent sentences together had onlookers wondering if he had any idea where he was, let alone what he was debating. The Commander-in-Chief, reportedly down with a cold after a leisurely week at Camp David, couldn’t elevate his whispery voice to a level that could compete with traffic noise.

Even when Joe managed to let out a wheezy response, it was starkly clear—a side-by-side comparison with former President Donald Trump displayed a universe where one looked sharp and on point while the other floundered like a fish out of water. Trump stayed disciplined, controlled, and on message—a show of restraint drawing stark contrast to Biden’s incoherence.

As the night dragged on, the whispers grew louder. Online chatter amongst Democrats revealed a growing contemplation about replacing Biden. One has to wonder if they missed the memo: debates aren’t graded on the curve, and Biden’s flubbed performance wasn’t just a trip—it was a faceplant.

Moving to the “meat” of the debate, the usual suspects made cameos: the age-old abortion debate came to the forefront. Trump laid out support for exceptions in cases of rape, incest, and the health of the mother, placing the power into the hands of states and championing the idea that some compromises are necessary to get elected. Biden, however, didn’t have the gumption to tackle Trump’s statement on disunity within the Republican ranks about abortion restrictions. Instead, he dragged the attention to advocate for larger federal impositions—an expected maneuver to distract from his crumbling facade.

The debate’s schooling period saw some analysts pass failings on Biden like candy on Halloween. White House experts dished out an F to Biden for his failure to meet the basic expectations. Trump, bouncing high on the curve due to Biden’s epic implosion, snagged an A-. The general consensus was unanimous: Democrats might seriously want to consider another horse if they want to be in the running.

On another stage, Congressman Jamaal Bowman found himself tripped up by his own crypto-skepticism. Losing the faith of his constituents and some heavy-hitters backing crypto enthusiast opponents, he became another cautionary tale in the dance of digital currency and political pandering. Fairshake PAC flexed its monetary muscles, throwing hefty sums to bump crypto-skeptics out the door—a wake-up call for candidates to toe the line or face the costly consequences.

With the backdrop of politics resembling more of a game of musical chairs, the Senate might soon miss its resident compromiser-in-chief, Joe Manchin. As Manchin and Sinema head for the exits, talk of a potential successor capturing the spirit of political oscillation comes from Larry Hogan. Encouraged by former President George W. Bush to run, Hogan’s association with No Labels hints at a future where centrism takes a stand. Although a unity ticket with Manchin fizzled, Hogan stepping into the ring might just be the start of another political legacy.

So ends a night that laid bare the vulnerabilities of a sitting president, exposed fissures within ranks on both sides of the aisle, and previewed the battles yet to come, be they over life, liberty, or digital currency. Voter takeaways? The homework is overdue, but the conclusions are drawing nearer: Americans now know where each candidate stands—one flounders while the other schemes.
