    Using ones health against him is weak tea compared to what the left does.

    If you mean his mental health because of his age, then yes, democrats are and will go after him for that.

    David Axelrod, former adviser to President Obama, told POLITICO that Biden’s back-and-forth on the Hyde Amendment was a “bad look” in light of a background narrative surrounding his age.

    “When you are 76 and age is in question, you don’t want to be in a situation where your campaign says you ‘misheard’ the question,” Axelrod said. “[T]his kind of story will raise issues.”

    If he won in 2020, Biden would be eight years older than the oldest president ever to take office — Donald Trump, Axelrod emphasized. And he’d be two years older than the life expectancy for a male in the United States.

    “This is one reason I think they've kept him on a relatively leisurely pace on the campaign trail and away from some of the major events and away from reporters, frankly, because they are worried about things just such as the one we have just seen,” Axelrod said in a separate interview on CNN.
    Pete Buttigieg, who’s rising in primary polls, has taken several subtle swipes at Biden and the older candidates in the race. As one of the youngest hopefuls in the race, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has made generational appeals central to his campaign.

    “I think our party is certainly ready to lift up leaders from a new generation,” Buttigieg said in a May interview on the Today Show. “The exciting thing is that I think this race will create a fair playing field where people who’ve been in the public sphere for longer than I’ve been alive and people like me get to compete on the basis of our ideas.”

    The use of coded generational language to attack an older politician without mentioning age directly is a tactic that Biden himself successfully employed as a 29-year-old challenger in his first U.S. Senate race against incumbent Cale Boggs in 1972. Boggs was 63 years old at the time.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Even at Biden's advanced age he doesn't need to be dragged to his car and he has no long coughing fits in televised speeches.

    But go ahead and say this is about "menopause."

    Again, the left has to lie to make the point.
    "What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."

    Time will tell.
