Biden’s New ‘Team’ Has A New Mission

President Joe Biden and his campaign team are taking extra precautions to ensure that the 80-year-old president avoids any public stumbles, as concerns about his age and fitness for office continue to be a major focus for voters.

Recently, Biden stumbled while walking up to a stage at the Air Force Academy in June, which raised further questions about his health and physical ability. This has prompted his team to take measures to prevent any similar incidents from occurring in the future.

According to sources familiar with the matter, the president has been working with a physical therapist, Drew Contreras, since November 2021, to improve his balance. This is in addition to exercises recommended by his physician to address his spinal and foot arthritis.

As a result of these efforts, Biden has been seen wearing tennis shoes more often and using the shorter stairs on Air Force One, in order to avoid slipping. However, this has not gone unnoticed by Republicans, who have used video clips of Biden appearing disoriented after speeches to further question his age and cognitive abilities.

Some senior Democrats have reportedly expressed frustration with Biden's advance team, citing the sandbag incident and other moments where the president has appeared confused about where to go after speaking at a podium. They are concerned that any similar incidents in the lead-up to the November 2024 election could have a significant impact on his chances of reelection.

Biden's balance difficulties are believed to be a result of his arthritis, and his doctor has recommended "proprioceptive maintenance maneuvers" to address the issue. However, this term is not commonly used in clinical settings, and it is unclear what exactly these exercises entail.

White House spokesperson Andrew Bates insisted that this is not a new issue, and has been transparently disclosed in reports from Biden's doctor since 2021. He also emphasized that the media sensationalizing this issue takes attention away from the president's accomplishments for the American people.

Recent polls have shown that voters have significant concerns about Biden's age and whether he is fit for office. This is a sentiment shared by many Americans, with three-fourths of them seeing Biden as too old for office, according to a recent AP-NORC poll.

Meanwhile, concerns about former President Donald Trump's mental state have also been raised, particularly after his recent posts on social media accusing the exiting Joint Chiefs Chairman of "treason," and his vow to use the presidency to investigate a media company for "vicious" coverage.

Biden's team is taking a calculated risk by proactively addressing his balance and age concerns, even if it means facing criticism and mockery from the opposing party. Ultimately, they hope that avoiding any potential public stumbles or accidents in the lead-up to the election will help the president's chances of winning a second term.

This has been a recurring pattern for Democrats, as similar precautions were taken during the 2020 campaign to protect Biden from getting COVID-19. Although this led to criticism of the president's "basement campaign," the end result may have been worth it in terms of preventing any potential health risks.

The concerns about Biden's age and physical abilities are reminiscent of past elections, such as when Republican Bob Dole, then 73, accidentally fell off a stage at a rally in September 1996. The incident was widely covered by the media and became a focal point for the age comparison between Dole and his opponent, the energetic Bill Clinton.
