Washington Examiner – Former President Barack Obama’s former longtime doctor said the medical records Joe Biden’s campaign disclosed are concerning and incomplete.
“He’s not a healthy guy,” Dr. David Scheiner, who was Obama’s personal physician for 22 years before he became president, concluded after reading the records. “He’s not in bad shape for his age, but I wouldn’t say he’s in outstanding health. Could I guarantee he won’t have issues for the next four years? He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there.”
A three-page letter from Biden’s physician concluded the former vice president is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old” that is fit to be president. But the letter also revealed Biden receives treatment for an irregular heartbeat and high cholesterol and that he deals with acid reflux and seasonal allergies. It noted his already known history of aneurysms and that he took blood thinners. Biden’s last medical records disclosure, from when he was Obama’s running mate in 2008, was 49 pages.
Fox – Former Vice President Joe Biden said on Thursday that he is unwilling to commit to running for a second term if he is elected president next November. Biden, who if elected would become the oldest sitting American president in history at the end of his first term, would not answer Democratic primary debate moderator Tim Alberta’s question about whether he would pursue a second term in the White House. “No, I’m not willing to commit one way or another,” Biden said during Thursday’s debate at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. This issue came up because of the concern that Biden would be 86 if he completed a second term if he won the 2020 presidential elections.
Rumors have been circulating about other health issues Biden may have. Does Joe Biden Have Dementia? Biden has always been gaff prone, but the questions continue. Is this simply folksy or Joe tripping over his tongue? Or are these early symptoms of dementia, defined by the Alzheimer’s Association as, “An overall term that describes a group of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities?”
Then there was that latest concern is over Biden’s red-eye, which occurred during a CNN town hall on climate change. As the Daily Mail reported, Biden’s “eye filled up with blood” while he was in the middle of speaking. Unlike the sycophantic U.S. media, many have raised some legitimate concerns, writing, “Biden, 76, has already been facing questions over his age and health amid a string of verbal gaffes.”
This is an important issue because Biden is leading in the polls for the Democrats in the presidential sweepstakes. If not Biden than who?
