Every time Joe Biden appears before the American public, he comes across not as a president or a commander-in-chief but sadly as a weak, pathetic, clueless and tired old man.

He states that he stands behind his decisions made on Afghanistan. I don’t believe that he has any idea what damage he has done to America, our allies and people of Afghanistan that helped us for the last 20 years.

He is clueless and apparently so are the people that are advising him on our withdrawal from Afghanistan. And because of his actions, there will be at least 13 brave American soldiers who came home in a flag-draped coffin instead of into the arms of their family and loved ones.

May God bless all those brave soldiers who knowingly knew the risks they were facing, and yet went into a country taken over by terrorists who hate Americans, to rescue their fellow American and Afghans. My heart goes out to all of them. I pray for their safety. I am ashamed of our government and military leaders. Heads need to roll from the top down.

Actually Carol he is a CLUELESS LOSER, more than 50 years living off the fat of the land and zero accomplishments except to line his and his family pockets

Great LTE! I see it has ruffled the feathers of the Party’s believers. Joe is as described.

Awteam2021

Another insignificant comment by pdl603. JSK, he’s on your side. Good luck 👍.

No less significant than yours.

Dear LTE Writer,

We know you watch Faux News regularly. You have made that abundantly clear. The old saying from Mark Twain that you should be applying to yourself is: "it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to talk and remove all doubt."

You have removed all doubt. Thanks and welcome to my Ted Talk.

jsklinelga

Earlier I posted that I do not like derogatory terms leveled at the President because the office is more than the man. No one doubts Biden is being led by the machine that elected him. But the people behind the curtain have made some poor decisions. And now , instead of focusing on the continuing situation surrounding Afghanistan, or the crisis at the border, or the out of kilter employment problem etc.etc. He is headlining a Federal attack on the state of Texas. Good luck. Remember the Alamo Joe.

Awteam2021

JSK, Americans and our allies are being flown out of Afghanistan right as I comment. Yes people of Central America are still coming to our borders for refuge. Sad. Unemployment is a quiet protect against low pay and working conditions. But you should be celebrating and jumping for joy! The GDP is growing stronger that's the tide that lifts all boats. And, you may not remember , the Alamo fell.

Awteam2021

Remember JSK has served in the Army of God.......don't drag him into your delusions of the Alamo.

gary4books

I expect you meant to say "San Jacinto" since Texas did not win at the Alamo.

“ No one doubts Biden is being led …”

How do you know what everyone thinks?

It's not "the people behind the curtains" jsk... it's the vast majority of Patriotic Americans who voted for peace and prosperity, Democrats.... Now your cabal, has shown it's inability to hit the broad side of a barn with a basketball from two feet away... Point in fact, January 6th utter and complete failure to take control of the legislative process with your pipe dreams, Truth matters, you should try using it sometime.

Is Tom Brady too old? Are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers losers?

Not the last time I looked. They beat Kansas City and a very young QB.

A team has many parts and the POTUS is a team, not a solo player.

It is good to have a President who is young and sturdya nd has the energy for lasting work over many hours. But day to day, they have writers and policy people and all (in the White House) to draft papers and speeches and produce the work of the POTUS.

Judge the President on the results of his office, not on his age or perceived age related faults. If age were that important we would have age limits both ways. Now we have only a minimum age.

gary4books

And they just beat Dallas.

I don't think the letter writer even cares about the lives lost in Afghanistan over the last 20 years due to our involvement there. About 50,000 Afghanis and over 2000 American soldiers were killed there. We spent over $2 trillion. Those things hurt us and our reputation much more than our departure from Afghanistan. What hurt our reputation even more was that we elected Trump. Other countries laughed at us when we elected Bush - both times - but they were rightly disgusted when we elected Trump. Biden is a huge step up.

C.D.Reid

Once again, someone has written accurately of the feeble, senile fossil in the White House, a token "president," a puppet of the Democrap Party, and once again his sheeple try to deflect from his inabilities and failures by bringing up Trump again. I wonder how many of them have removed their Biden/Harris bumper stickers by now? [lol][lol][lol]

positive claims require positive evidence.......positive claims require positive evidence...Butch...we'll wait for a few hours for you to do some Googling....????

Some of us are skeptics and some of us are not...we have a diverse audience. Clarification may be needed.....?

Butch do you remember when the "news" had to be facts to be called the news? I do....and if the news program didn't tell the "facts" the news program couldn't call them selves news? I do.......so yeah positive claims require positive evidence...

Awteam2021

Then you most feel the Afghan mission happened a month ago. Isn’t the definition of senile the inability to remembering what happened in the past? Have you forgotten the last 20 years? The 20th anniversary that started this occupation is this Saturday 9/11. Remember? You might be the Fox News sheeple senile fossil 🥴. Think about it, if you can. Biden ended it.

Awteam2021

Americans and allies are flying out of Afghanistan as I type.

CD, Why do you so stubbornly connect the wrong dots?

Biden is real...Trump is a myth......

Remember the other day when I said we need to stop believing in mythical beings? We would be so much better off if we didn't believe in myths, mythical beings.

Ms. Keeney's belief in a mythical being (god) does explain why she believes in the myth of Trump. When you believe in one myth without question you will believe any myth without question.

Piedmontgardener

Ms. Kenney - What I'm ashamed of is that in 2004 we shifted gears from a targeted objective and sacrificed years of American blood and treasure for a completely useless objective - building a nation state in Afghanistan. I'm sad my fellow citizens with their "Support Our Troops" ribbons and flag lapels casually went on with their business, while year after year, we had awful funerals at Arlington and other cemeteries across the US. And quite honestly, it's mindless thinking like your own that perpetuated this abomination for so many years. Now you want to raise your voice? You have no platform to offer these opinions other than whatever prepacked media that you consume. Please spare resharing this like some Facebook post, it's the lowest common denominator of public thought.

Dwasserba

Biden is old, no one denies it, only a young person cares about currying favor in the moment, two steps from the grave is a different perspective, history will judge. The End.

DickD

What a bunch of garbage from someone who probably supports the Mafia gangster, Trump!

joelp77440

He's not clueless, he is just old. I have met him several times and noticed recently he has lost several steps.

sevenstones1000

Yeah, we all believe you. Good friend of Joe’s you are.

Piedmontgardener

Agreed, he's a caretaker President of limited abilities. But he's about 400X's more American than our previous President.

TrekMan

That's your opinion. Period! In many others eyes, Sleepy Joe is 400X worse - and much stupider. He's a puppet for sure - but the question is, who's controlling the strings??

threecents

Listen to yourself. You think Biden is a puppet, but you don't know who's? There is no reason think anyone is controlling Joe. Like any smart president, he surrounds himself with experts who follow his basic ideals and work toward his goals, which he laid out clearly in the debates and on his web site before the election. Trump, on the other hand, mostly did not lay anything out. He would hire and fire advisors and cabinet frequently - when then didn't just quit out of disgust for him. With Trump's big lie - and his behavior throughout - Trump showed he was Putin's tool to make much of the population distrust our election process and thus our entire political system - exactly Putin's goal.

Dwasserba

God willing, “old” will be as kindly to everyone we care about.

Awteam2021

Joe,

Who hasn’t lost a few steps? You may be the exception but as a recreational runner, I’ve lost a few steps too. Need my 8 hrs. of sleep, wear reading glasses, have others proof my writings. But my cognitive skills are still intact.

Biden doesn’t seem to have any problem with his perspicacity abilities. He even agreed with Trump that it was time to get out of Afghanistan. You disagree?

TrekMan

He's lost more than several steps...'nough said!

Awteam2021

Spoken like someone on their last leg 🦵. Given up. Burnt toast. Enough said.

threecents

Joel, I have not met Joe, but I have followed him for decades, and I don't think "he has lost several steps". I remember you are the guy who said that older folks should retire to give young people a chance. If Joe had followed that advice, Trump might have been re-elected.

Fredginrickey

Where was the writer when Trump signed the surrender treaty, invited leaders of the Taliban to Camp David (our neighborhood!), and released 5000 American killing Taliban terrorists in February 2020? Then reduced troop strength to only 2500 in December. Leaving a force too small to handle further crises.

The loss of the 13 Marines (not soldiers) and a sailor is tragic, as were the losses of 81 military personnel in Afghanistan under Trump, whose deaths were not politicized, nor publicly mourned, their deaths didn’t matter to the Trumpers who are now exploiting 13 deaths for political scoring points, disgraceful.

stjohn42

Very tired of thoughtless LTE's pushing the "Sleepy Joe" narrative, when it is pretty clear the writer never listened to anything that Biden said before drafting the letter. Conservative media already has plenty of empty talking heads to regurgitate this nonsense; there is no need for the FNP to amplify it for free.

Fredginrickey

If you can't see Sleepy Joe is clueless, then it's time for some meds.

gary4books

To be honest, I DO NOT see that.

matthewboh

I sorely wish that the FNP would stop printing letters from Fox News watching, tin foil cap wearing people. They tend to either be retired or on SSID and have the time to write such drivel. I'm sure the writer believes the facist, sexist, racist guy with the orange skin was a better choice. Let her praise her Girth Vader but please, no more letters from the loony bin?

tonyc51

I can agree, but while they are at it stop printing letters and comments from closed minded CNN and MSNBC watchers.

TrekMan

Right on - Crap News Network is the worst. MSNBC is no longer relevant at all. I wonder why Fox News has the largest viewership than all the others combined?? Answer me that.

Freedom of speech comes in all different flavors, even bitter and looney flavors. If you want yours you have to accept others’ freedoms too. You’re not required to agree!

Admit it, Carol, you were embarrassed about supporting a president who stayed in bed in his jammies watching cartoons until 2 in the afternoon every day.

Gee, Carol.....did you think that last clown DJT had a clue? He was like a combination of Bozo the Clown and Al Capone in the way he ran the office. Don-Sippy-Cup....master of giving away the farm to his friends in exchange for positions in offices they had no qualifications to hold and also that had financial conflicts that should have prevented them too (DeJoy, for one). The only clue Donnie Dumbazz had was on how to incite an insurrection and stage an attempted coup, and how to illegally get a hooker an Einstein visa so he could keep her here.

public-redux

The fourth paragraph implies that God was unable or unwilling to keep American soldiers safe.

Awteam2021

Carol Keeney is the clueless one here 🤦‍♂️.

jsklinelga

Personally I do not care for the President to be called clueless. Nor am I thrilled about the F you Joe Biden chants that rang out at the college football games this weekend. But it has become commonplace as the last President has been riddled with a torrent of unflattering names daily. In a way it is not much different than dishonoring the flag.

But it is reflective of a new generation that really has never fought for anything (including many in my generation) but have been handed freedoms and prosperity that is the envy of the world. It is a common byproduct: if you never really fought for something you are absent respect for it.

DickD

What military service were you in, Jim?

olefool

The question of the day... Do you suppose you will get an answer?

Guy T. Ashton

Military service is not a requirement for freedom of speech. So many calling for freedom of speech are too eager to deny it for others.

threecents

Polite, What are the annual dues, and is there a building fund?

@DickD

JSK was in the only military service that matters...God's Army...but I'm not sure which god that may be though? I serve in the Army of Loki, that's my god, you can join if you want? We need new recruits...cause the Army of God(not sure which exact god) and the Army of Lok are always fighting....but there are times we could both be fighting against each other so.....but there is an awesome sign on bonus if you join the Army of Loki...?????

Dwasserba

[thumbup]jsk “Respecting the office” can be challenging if you cannot respect the holder but it should be the goal.

fjulia

President Biden surely has more knowledge of what the meaning of Afghanistan was then the clueless buffoon before him would have had. You know, the one who agreed to release 5000 terrorists, pulled half of the then U.S. forces out of country, and did all it could to hinder or prevent the U.S. from evacuating thos Afghanis that helped us. Rather than old and tired, I see a president who accepts blame, shows he cares, and tries to do the right thing rather than the buffoon who is a liar, adulterer, and molester.

gary4books

I watch President Biden on television and see a thoughtful person with many strong positions and plans for the USA. it does surprise me that others do not see this. It must be a problem in perception. If so, I suggest they wait and see how our economy goes, how Afghanistan fares and even how the virus problem ends. Then we can be on he "same page." It is what they do that counts more than what they say.

Greg F

Gary...the folks at Jonestown didn't see the kool-aid coming until the very last day. This is no different. Don-Jim-Jones Trump II is the one pouring out the red juice this time.

gary4books

Come on. They practiced drinking the Kool-Aid several times as a test of their "faith."

MD1756

It was Flavor-Aid not Kool-aid.

TomWheatley

I see a repeat of the Great Society- shut the barn doors scenario between LBJ spending and Nixon price controls coming along with high inflation. Especially if this next 3.5 trillion bill goes thru.

We already have auto manufacturers stopping production for at least 2 weeks and thousands of dollars markup on existing cars. We have workers sitting on the sidelines getting unemployment and waiting on that $25/hour pay. Companies may do that, but with less workers and more automation. And higher wages will turn around into higher prices on products.

tonyc51

" It must be a problem in perception." No doubt there is a problem whether it is perception or what. The real question is who has the perception problem, you or the LTE?

Awteam2021

Not necessarily, Tell me your perception then I can tell you if there’s a problem or not.

DickD

For those that support Trump it is a matter of WRONG Perception!

MD1756

I don't think he is as thoughtful as you believe. I do agree with things like reducing the incentive for illegal immigrants by helping them in their home country (Let's face it, it's a much cheaper and environmentally better solution). However he says he gets it when it comes to climate change but his actions either suggest otherwise or he doesn't care as much as he claims to care. How can he explain the incentives for people to have children (direct payments, child care support, more proposed free education, etc.). The number one contributor to human induced climate change is the growing human population. It makes no sense, if you believe in human induced climate change, to increase incentives for people to have children. Additionally, there are other negative impacts from a growing human population which I have enumerated many examples several times. Any program that requires population growth to be successful is a Ponzi scheme and ultimately not sustainable. The government needs to stop supporting people's choice (not requirement or physical need) to have children. Let them have children if they want but they must pay the costs (and the costs are greater than the benefits in the long run).

And Obama who released 4 of the primary leaders now running Afghanistan in exchange for traitor Bergdahl while Joe was VP.

Fredginrickey

Trump released 5000 American killing Taliban terrorists in February, and didn’t save any Americans held hostage.

Awteam2021

Does Trump releasing 2 in leadership one being Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar potentially the next leader of Afghanistan and agreeing to release of 5,000 Taliban prisoners count?

Awteam2021

Tonyc51, you may not be aware we achieved our initial objectives - getting Bin-Ladin and destroying Al-Qaeda. The mission was expanded - an experiment in nation building, hoping to better Afghan life and stabilize the country.

We attempted to develop a liberalized democracy, liberating women, built an education system, attempted to develop an economy outside of opioids, built the military (300,000) with state of the art equipment and an Air Force. It all fell apart in 5 days. All after 20 years of investment.

Our response to this tragedy was to pull off a herculean-heroic-humanitarian evacuation of over 125,000 people, all by air in 2 weeks! Unfortunately, losing 13 brave soldiers who were manning the gate, murdered by a suicide bomber.

It reminds me of “ you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.” A proverb which means that you can give someone an opportunity but not force them to take it. Kinda like getting the covid vaccine here in the US. They need to make that choice on their own terms.
