(RepublicanWire.org) – On the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s famous vow to put a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s — President Biden re-announced his cancer “moonshot” goal to cut in half deaths from the related diseases by 2047.
Kennedy’s 1962 plan to put a man on the moon was accomplished within seven years.
“The goal is to cut cancer death rates by at least 50% — at least 50% in the next 25 years, to turn more cancers from death sentences into chronic diseases people can live with,” Biden said in a speech in Boston.
Biden sought to tie himself to Kennedy’s legacy and was even introduced by JFK’s daughter Caroline Kennedy, the current US ambassador to Australia.
The White House previously outlined a cancer “moonshot” vision in February, but re-upped the initiative to take advantage of publicity around the Kennedy speech’s anniversary.
“Today, I signed an executive order that directs the federal government to ensure biotechnologies invented in the United States of America are made in the United States of America,” said Biden.
Biden’s speech was full of gaffes and awkward moments.
At one point Joe Biden pointed to cancer patients sitting on the balcony and told them not to jump.
Joe Biden also mispronounced the name of the Director of the National Cancer Institute, Monica Bertagnolli: “Monica, you can call me Bid-in,” he said trying to recover from the gaffe.
In the end, Biden got lost and had no idea where to go after his speech.
Every time Biden speaks in public, it reveals that he is not well.
