As November 2024 arrives, I am betting most voters will realize Joe Biden has done a job as President better than the repressive ideologies of any GOP candidate.

As for the age issue, one must judge one’s ability based on one’s performance. For example, Biden’s State of the Union address was a masterpiece, cajoling the GOP members present into not cutting Social Security or Medicare.

On April 27th, I celebrated my 92nd birthday by playing my 3rd golf game of the week and then walking half a mile on my street. This Op Ed is one of dozens I have written over the years.

A recent column in the Washington Post talks about SuperAgers, which perhaps I am, but aging is so variable that to say, as former CNN Anchor Don Lemon did, a woman is past her best years in her forties got him fired. At 80 Biden seems fit and eager to finish the task he has well begun.

Read that column here.

While his reelection case can be made on the solid grounds listed below, the main factor which voters not living in a fantasy world understand is the alternative governance offered by the GOP which pushes the world farther away from solutions to our many problems and into the hands of authoritarians who pretend to stand for freedom when every policy they push inhibits human rights. Take as examples their manic anti-abortion legislation, their ignored gun terrorism, their efforts at voting inhibitions for minorities, and the racism of their Critical Race Theory and the far right GOP’s press for making the US a mandatory Christian Nation.

Joe Biden, the 46th President of the United States, has a long and distinguished career in public service. As a former Vice President under Barack Obama, and a Senator from Delaware for 36 years, Biden has a wealth of experience in domestic and foreign policy issues. In this essay, we will explore why Joe Biden has a winning case for president against any GOP candidate.

First, Joe Biden’s experience in public service gives him a significant advantage over any GOP candidate. Biden has served in the Senate for 36 years, where he was the Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee and the Judiciary Committee. During his time in the Senate, Biden worked on a wide range of issues, including criminal justice reform, foreign policy, and civil rights. Additionally, Biden has a deep understanding of how the federal government works, which will be crucial in navigating the complex political landscape of Washington.

Second, Joe Biden has a reputation as a unifying figure in American politics. Throughout his career, Biden has worked across the aisle to pass bipartisan legislation. For example, in 2015, Biden worked with Senator Mitch McConnell to pass the Every Student Succeeds Act, which reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. This willingness to work with Republicans will be important for Biden as president, as he will need to work with a divided Congress to pass legislation.

Third, Joe Biden has a clear and compelling vision for America’s future. Biden’s campaign platform focuses on issues that are important to American families, including healthcare, education, and climate change. He has proposed a comprehensive healthcare plan that would build on the Affordable Care Act, expand access to healthcare, and lower costs. Biden has also proposed a plan to make college more affordable, and a plan to address climate change by investing in renewable energy and infrastructure.

Fourth, Joe Biden has demonstrated strong leadership during times of crisis. During the Ebola crisis, Biden was tasked with overseeing the government’s response. He worked with international partners to contain the virus and prevent its spread to the United States. Biden also played a key role in the Obama administration’s response to the 2008 financial crisis, where he worked to pass the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which helped to stabilize the economy and create jobs.

Fifth, Joe Biden has a track record of standing up for working families. Biden has long been a champion of the middle class and has worked to protect workers’ rights and increase access to education and healthcare. As president, Biden has promised to prioritize issues that are important to working families, including raising the minimum wage, expanding access to paid family leave, and protecting Social Security and Medicare.

Sixth, Joe Biden has demonstrated a commitment to diversity and inclusion. Biden has a long history of advocating for civil rights and has worked to pass legislation that promotes equality and justice for all Americans. Biden has also promised to appoint a diverse cabinet and administration, which would reflect the diversity of America.

Seventh, Joe Biden has the support of a wide range of voters. Throughout his campaign, Biden has built a broad coalition of support, including progressives, moderates, and independents. Biden has also received endorsements from a diverse group of individuals and organizations, including labor unions, environmental groups, and civil rights organizations.

Finally, Joe Biden has demonstrated an ability to connect with voters on a personal level. Biden’s warm and empathetic demeanor has endeared him to many Americans, and his personal experiences with tragedy and loss have given him a unique perspective on the challenges that American families face. As president, Biden has promised to be a leader who listens to the concerns of all Americans, and who works to bring people together to solve the nation’s most pressing problems.

In conclusion, Joe Biden has a winning case for president against any GOP candidate. Biden’s experience in public service, his ability to work across the aisles in Congress and all around the nation should ensure his 2nd term in office.
