Biden mentally is stuck in his Senate speeches of yor, involving his anecdotal tales of heroism he made up as he went. Reporters did not expend energy tracking down the absence of any truth in his tales and so fantasy through repetition became fact and so henceforth was spoken as fact.

What once politically worked is today working to build a Biden image of incompetence and a disconnect to average voters.
