I hate to post a...\n*gulps loudly\n...nother political thread.\n:rolleyes:\n\nBut today we are faced with yet another headline of one of our political leaders showing obvious signs of being unfit for office due to their age.\n\nComplaints have been made before. Numerous complaints. Do we need to rehash them all?\nLet's just name a few current options:\nMcConnell (81), Feinstein (90), Biden (80), Pelosi (83... but to be fair, she also stepped aside from her leadership role), Grassley (89)...\nAnd let's also consider that if Biden was "too old" at 78, Trump will be 78 if elected again... or... the same age as Biden for his current term as president.\n\nA quick perusal showed a slew of Democrats as 8 of the 10 oldest folk in The House with the youngest of this group being 80. Including the two independents caucusing with the Dems in the Senate, there are 7 among the 10 oldest with the youngest being 76.\n\nSo where does this fit in to any sort of common sense approach to discussing the topic? Again, trying to keep partisianship out of this and ignoring political hit pieces, you still have concerns being raised about Biden, Feinstein and most currently (today), McConnell.\n\nIs this a true problem?\nDo we, as voters, need to actively choose to not elect anybody over a certain age knowing that this may well be a disservice to an otherwise healthy and potentially good political leader?\nDo we need Term Limits and Age limits established by legislation?\n\nIs this a complete nothing-burger?\n\nAgain... PLEASE... lets keep the partisan BS out of this discussion and talk about whether this is a real issue facing our country.\n\nPlease discuss.
