When Joe Biden appeared at the G-7 summit in Belgium, and when he later met with Vladimir Putin in Switzerland, the 78-year-old continued to show signs of cognitive decline, prompting some political pundits to question whether he can remain as president for an entire four-year term.
But Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families does not think Biden has any intention of giving up his office.
"I think that President Biden's intention is not only to serve four years, but eight years," he tells One News Now. "I think a lot of powerful forces in the Democrat Party believe that he comes across as an unthreatening Democrat. People know he's been around a long time, that the American people will continue to be comfortable with him rather than be afraid of the progressive wing of the Democrat Party."
And Bauer believes that the Democrat leadership is watching Kamala Harris's performance as vice president very closely.
"They're beginning to conclude that she would not be up to the job if she had to step into the presidency," he asserts, listing "her inability to stop herself from laughing at critical moments when she's being asked serious questions, her complete incompetence on the border. So right now I think the Democrat Party is wondering what kind of a situation they will face in 2024."
Regardless of who occupies the White House, Bauer says the Republicans can stop the Democrats' agenda by taking back the House and Senate in 2022.
