Some people are starting to wonder about Joe Biden and whether he is not up to the task of running.
He has been displaying all kinds of bizarre behavior lately, including biting his wife’s finger and yelling at a voter in Iowa.
Even former Obama adviser David Axelrod has some concerns.
He made his thoughts known during an appearance on CNN.
Real Clear Politics provides a partial transcript:
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN HOST: David Axelrod, CNN Senior Political Commentator, former senior adviser to the Obama administration. I’m wondering what you made of that exchange. I mean, obviously, it’s kind of thing that often, you know, happens in a town hall meeting. Is that the right way for Biden to handle it?
DAVID AXELROD, CNN SENIOR POLITICAL COMMENTATOR: I think the technical term, Anderson, was that he was really pissed and he showed it. And part of it is that he’s very reactive to questions about his children and about his son. That said — and so, you know, I think people will excuse him that much. That said, it turned into a bit of a rant, and he was over-torqued. And so, no, that’s not the way he should handle it.
And I would suggest that he could have spared himself a lot of trouble at the beginning of this whole saga if he had simply said what Hunter Biden has said which was, it was a mistake to go on that board. Vice president should just say that.
AXELROD: Yes, right. And I think that to a degree, that fire was there and I think people might respond positively to that if he had approached it in a different way, if he had said that’s not true. Even calling him a damn liar, I think that was over the line, but it showed some fight. But then to get into the push-ups and how much he knows and, was just seemed a little bit off the rail.

Here’s the bottom line.
Biden is a terrible candidate.
Does anyone on the left believe he is going to get better as the campaign drags on?
