Carville: Biden not accepting Super Bowl interview is a 'sign' | The Hill

"It's the biggest television audience, not even close, and you get a chance to do a 20, 25-minute interview on that day, and you don't do it, that's…

Democratic strategist James Carville said President Biden not sitting for an interview before the Super Bowl is a "sign" of his administration having little confidence in him.

"It's the biggest television audience, not even close, and you get a chance to do a 20, 25-minute interview on that day, and you don't do it, that's a kind of sign that the staff or yourself doesn't have much confidence in you. There's no other way to read this," Carville said in a recent interview on CNN's "Smerconish."

This will be the second year in a row that the president has not sat for an interview before the big game. Biden's decision not to participate comes as he's been facing bad press in the wake of the release of a special counsel report on his handling of classified documents.

The report from special counsel Robert Hur, released Thursday, concluded no charges should be brought against the president, but it noted Biden had problems with memory and recall.

"We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory," Hur wrote.

"Based on our direct interactions with and observations of him, he is someone for whom many jurors will want to identify reasonable doubt. It would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him — by then a former president well into his eighties — of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness."

Biden hit back at the report in a fiery press conference Thursday night, defending his memory and mental capability.

"My memory's fine … Take a look at what I've done since I became president … How did that happen? I guess I just forgot what was going on," he said.

In the same press conference, however, the president confused the president of Egypt with the president of Mexico.

The biggest stage in all of America, and the President's team doesn't think he can handle an interview.

Tells us volumes about his mental faculties.

And some folks are going to vote for him???

WTF are they THINKING???????

It could possibly, maybe be an indicator of his facilities, that's to be seen.

What it definitely is, is a show of how confident his own team is in him , they would rather not risk it is what it says to me individually.

A relatively friendly interview shouldn't be a threat to the President, but here we are.

Which makes it all the more evident that the sitting President is incapable of conducting a nonscripted interview.

Might be the Biden's team best strategy--HIDE HIM!!!!!!!!

Don't let folks know what they are voting for!

You hoodwinked millions last election, I am sure you can pull off the feat again.

I don't think so.

Never bet against the stupidity of the average American voter--the ones who continually bitch about partisanship and "the other" party but always willing to push aside common sense, saneness, and integrity to ensure "their guy" wins.

It is a very sad commentary that the freaking President of the United States is so inept that he and his team are afraid to have him do an interview on his own.

How can anyone in good conscience vote for failure?????

Democrats should have learned by now to listen to Carville.

More proof, as if anyone who's been paying attention needed it, that  Hur's conclusions about Biden's mental state were accurate. The proof is , and always has been, his staffs' strategy of hiding him from the public as much as possible since he won the nomination in 2020.  He's an old man not up to the rigors of one of the most stressful jobs in the world. Denying that is like denying the earth goes around the sun. It's not shameful that he's old. That his enablers pretend otherwise is.

You keep repeating the same bullshit. There is no evidence that Biden's alleged condition is effecting his presidency.

There is no evidence that Biden's alleged condition is effecting his presidency. 

Even the perception of him being a weak and addled man has ramifications internationally in how countries view US Policy.  How do they know who the decision maker on any subject is? How many times have his handlers had to explain what he said in public isn't what he "really meant?" and that US policy is the opposite of what he declared? 

The public facing stuff is one thing, who knows what's going on behind scenes? No one can possibly believe that having a President of limited capacity is acceptable, and while we  know he's already  not competent we also know he  will continue to decline, inexorably.

Exactly, his memory issues may be a positive.  He keeps an open mind since he’s not constrained by what he thought previously.

I believe that Biden wanted to go on tv the other night over the protests of his team.

He came across as an addled, angry old man.

And then confused the President of Mexico with someone else.

Not helpful to his cause at all.
