I’m hoping it’s because he wants this election to be more about Trump than him, so he’s trying to lower his media exposure.

I think that live interviews do him more harm than good.

People start to call him old and feeble.

Plus his stutter doesn't help.

It's better if he sticks to pre-recorded videos.

Besides, the President's State of the Union address is on March 7, 2024.

He's probably preparing for that.

GOOD GOD IT'S HIS CHANCE TO CALL OUT REPUBLICAN BS OVER THE BORDER AND EVERYTHING ELSE!!! God he is feeble. Let Kamala do it then. Quit waiting for Trump to impode or the courts to settle him!

His handlers are afraid he will say something stupid or make a gaffe, which is likely. Better to keep him off the air. Pretty sad state of affairs.

Carville has said as much. The supporters are starting to weaken. Biden needs to start looking and sounding alive or he needs to get out. But then, Harris will get slaughtered by Trump.

[quote]emocratic 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.

[quote]“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.”

That may be a fine strategy for now, but what happens in the summer and fall when the campaign heats up? Biden will need to travel the country, doing live interviews, meet-and-greets, and other impromptu events. You can't run a campaign of nothing but pre-recorded videos.

He doesn’t want to detract from the event itself. It is Taylor’s show, after all, and he needs her support.

Maybe I just don't pay attention, but is it the norm for the President to do a pre-Superbowl interview?

[quote]It is the second year in a row that Biden has opted out of the interview. White House officials told reporters earlier this week they made the decision because Super Bowl viewers wanted to watch football, not the president.

He's right on that one.

“Soup bowls? What?”

Biden has been giving speeches and appearing on tv for the last two weeks or so, which every news service has covered. Where is the rule he needs to do Super Bowl interviews? He didn't do one last year, and nobody shrieked.

by Anonymousreply 14February 11, 2024 2:43 AM

It wasn't an election year last year and the entire country wasn't being force fed the idea that he is senile and can't string together two coherent sentences by politicians and media from bother the left and right.
