Mitt Romney hit the nail on the head. We don’t need Joe Biden or Donald Trump running for the presidency. They’re too old and President Biden should have his driver’s license taken away from him.
As an aside, my mom in her late 80’s gave up driving on her own. However, she did not give up cooking, so I had to turn the stove off at the breaker box and tell her the stove was broken. She would put stuff on the stove, sit down, fall asleep and burn things which could burn down the house and other condos along side it! She was miffed in her early 90’s that when I was home with her, the stove worked but when I was gone it didn’t!
We don’t need Joe Biden or Donald Trump as President, Mitt Romney in the Senate, Nancy Pelosi in the House or Mitch McConnell as the minority leader. Joe, Nancy and Mitch and others like them need to follow Mitt’s wonderful example to the country and our Church!!!! What a role model Mitt his for aging, fumbling, incoherent leaders who nonetheless tenaciously hang on to power!
But here is where we are at in the government of the USA and in our Church. We have aging baby-boomers, many though, pre-baby boomers, who want to hang onto power and continue to make a mess of things long after they have already made a mess of things to begin with.
That doesn’t mean a generational, epochal change will make things better. The younger crowd like the older crowd have it in their DNA to make a mess of things. We need, though, a different kind of mess than the mess President Biden and Pope Francis have made and those of their generations. We need a younger generational mess.
