President Biden is struggling to connect with younger voters. The sepia-toned stories he peppers into speeches may not be helping.

When Biden traveled to Israel last month, he spoke about his 1973 meeting with then Prime Minister Golda Meir. Following the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade last year, he stressed his work in 1987 to keep conservative Judge Robert Bork off the nation’s high court. Pressed about climate change during a news conference in Vietnam, he pointed to his longstanding commitment to the issue, including his work on it with Sen. Dick Lugar (R., Ind.) in the 1980s.
