Joe Biden's Gaffes Call For A Thorough Neurological Examination ~ Forbes

Henry I. Miller, a physician, and the Robert Wesson Fellow in Scientific Philosophy and Public Policy at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution,ASKS:

Don’t voters have a right to know whether Biden is ill or merely unlikeable, impulsive and prone to deceitfulness?

I got the impression that he deeply believed everything he said...which I could tell about twenty minutes into the debate that he was telling you things that just weren’t truthful or factual. He believes that though. I think Reagan did a fair job in his last two years of the Presidency....even though he probably was having such problems as well.

Biden? Obama lost a debate on Economics, he has been President for 4 years and took 3 days to prepare, yet can’t talk professionally about macro-economics in an intellectual setting? Biden is down-ticket, there is real questionable aptitude at the top.

Ha! LOL! But seriously, Fred Thompson was interviewed on Hannity radio and said basically that this has always been his MO with his adversaries. Asked why his handlers didn’t advise against this behavior, Thompson said it’s because he doesn’t act that way around his compatriots- they wouldn’t have seen this in debate prep.

SAN DIEGO, October 10, 2012 – In January, 1988, Vice President Joe Biden, then Senator from Delaware, was diagnosed with two brain aneurysms. In February, 1988, he underwent surgery to repair one of the weakened/ballooning arteries on one side of his brain. Shortly thereafter, he suffered a blood clot in his lungs known as a pulmonary embolus, which required timely, life-saving hospitalization and treatment. In August, 1988, the second damaged artery on the other side of the Vice President’s brain was surgically mended in a 270 minute operative procedure under general anesthesia.

People with a history of blood clots, brain surgery and/or brain aneurysms are at a significantly increased risk of ‘stroke’ (a layman’s term to denote a lack of blood flow and oxygen to brain tissue due to a clot-induced vessel blockage or outright vessel rupture and bleeding). The Vice President, today, remains at an increased risk for stroke.

One thing which is typical for people with incipient and moderate dementia is the covering of memory loss by confabulation. Confabulation means essentially that the person fills in the blank spots in his defective memory with made up "facts" and "memories." It is common in late stage alcoholism as well as other forms of progressive dementia.

Biden has been known for making up his own history as he goes along, and for some time. This, and the obvious impairment of impulse control, inappropiate affect, poor judgment displayed by his conduct, suggest defective frontal lobe executive function. His MRI would be very interesting to look at.

No,not quite that long.Listen to some of JFK's speeches,for example.I think the turning point was '72.Since McGovern every single one of their nominees has proven himself to be an absolute piece of filth.

Perhaps it's a coincidence but late 60's/early 70's was about the time when my parents,both democrats since youth in the 1930's,flipped to the GOP.

In watching Biden's performance again, I am in awe of Ryan's composure and maturity.

I think Biden's goal was simple, make Ryan angry, get him to lose his temper.

If that was the goal, Biden did an excellent job...but he failed miserably.

Ryan came through like the REAL leader he is...he proved his fitness for the Vice Presidency with flying colors.

And of course, Biden proved himself unfit.

My brother, a big time liberal, laughs in this manner.. at odd moments, as if he is in on some kind of joke that has not been voiced (except by the imaginary people in his own head)..

you’ll be talking to him and he will find things funny that are not only NOT funny, but it seems strange to hear him laugh, in these moments. He is actually quite nuts, and this much I know. He hasn’t worked in 15 years, and could never hold a job due to outbursts.

I’ve always felt this about Biden... and Al Gore, add into that Michael Moore.

there is also a great deal of condescending attitude coming from these types of libs.. They actually feel they are an advanced form of human being. Quite the opposite is true. They are severely flawed in the head.

my term would be: Grandiose Syndrome

If you can stomach it, watch Beckel on THE FIVE. When he sees the camera is on him he’ll show a fake grin and shake his head. Just like Biden. It’s their way of accepting they lost the debate point by pretending they think it’s funny.

When I worked in the ER we had a couple of wino "regulars" who had Korsakoff's Syndrome.They were both absolute train wrecks...as are most street alcoholics.

Liberals like Obozo/Biden,Pelosi, Reid and their mediots suffer from Illusory Superiority Response syndrome.

The response of the left to Biden’s rude behavior on the nationally televised debate is/was predictable. They loved it and insanely believe the rest of us love their insanity, arrogance, and rude behavior.

With over 70 years of life and at least 60 of those years watching liberals lie and feel superior. Decades ago, I came to the conclusion, that they are all mentally unstable and there is no cure for them.

They all suffer from Illusory Superiority Responses. Often this cognitive bias increases with years of faux education and their illusory social status in their increasing unstable/immature minds.

Illusory Superiority Response is a cognitive bias that causes people to overestimate their positive qualities and abilities and to underestimate their negative qualities, relative to others. This makes them under estimate real winners like Ronald Reagan.

So they label anyone, who dares to challenge their insane/rude Illusory Superiority Responses, as red necked, stupid, knuckle draggers rather than listen to what we have learned over the years, decades and centuries from history.

With the instant reality, we now have with the internet, Fox and social nets, the left wing mediots are losing their ability to lie, cover, and omit their beloved Obama’s/Biden’s mentally unstable responses.

The rabid/mentally unstable hard core liberals love the Illusory Superiority responses of Obama/Biden/Pelosi/Reed and others.

However, the instant and nationwide exposed insanity of their Illusory Superiority responses is killing them with the independent voters.

Vice President Joe Biden’s behavior during the Veep debate proved one thing: Team Obama has given up trying to win over independent voters and is betting it all on their base. Mr. Biden’s laughter, dismissive comments and smirks whenever Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) spoke was obviously an effort to placate those who react the same way when someone dares to point out President Obama’s failures and offers alternatives.

Zero also has a way of laughing inappropriately like he did in his interview with Steve Kroft on 60 minutes - the one where Kroft asked Obama why he was laughing and if he was punch drunk.

You could make an ad out of that along with Biden...

I think the history of the nuclear bomb shows perfectly clearly that already in the forties the US was being eaten from the inside by leftism.

“Perhaps it’s a coincidence but late 60’s/early 70’s was about the time when my parents,both democrats since youth in the 1930’s,flipped to the GOP.”

Carter’s failures and the dangers he put our country was probably the icing on the cake re good democrats leaving their party.

The good democrats at that time either became independents or republican.

Then they voted for Reagan and handed the rats back to back defeats before their mediots rescued them.

This is called confabulation which is what alcoholics or people suffering from dementia do.

I think that the crazies, like Bill Ayres and Berndadine Dohrn really turned off a lot of Democrats and drove them from the Democrat Party, during the McGovern election. It was the take over of the Democrat Party by the far left loons that elected Richard Nixon. I think that’s the reason that Hillary was so determined to undo the damage they had done by railroading Nixon for Watergate. I was reading an article about Hillary’s role in Watergate, yesterday, that said that the Democrats didn’t want the Nixon impeachment to go to trial because they were afraid that his defense would state and prove that the Kennedy administration had been guilty of far greater abuses than Watergate. Hillary, wanted the trial and worked to change the rules to deny Nixon the right to representation if the impeachment went to trial in the Senate.

I for some masochistic reason went to a talk by Joe in the late 70s, during his first Senate term, and before his surgeries, the car crash, and, of course, 30+ years of aging.

I don’t remember anything he said, except that his topic was nuclear proliferation (in which he was supposed to be an expert), and that he was boring as hell. Definitely not the laff-riot he is today.

SPOUSAL ABUSE VICTIMS WARY OF BIDEN.....

Women who've suffered spousal abuse said they could barely watch the debate-—b/c they were unnerved by Biden’s antics. They say Biden eerily reminded them of abusive husbands. All the tactics abusive men use to brutalize and demean, to make women feel inadequate and unimportant were the tactics they saw Biden use:

(1) not listening to their side,

(2) interrupting when they dared speak up,

(3) laughing and mugging when they tried to air their grievances,

(4) demeaning and marginalizing them for daring to disagree,

(5) asserting superority to keep them subjugated,

(6) showing contempt when they tried to defend themselves,

(7) being condescending to them and disdainful of their views.

========================================================

Women were unsettled by Biden’s behavior. Those who say Biden “won” the debate-—must be all men.

===============================================

AFTER THOUGHT Probably best to keep talkin' up Biden w/ fem-lib talk----b/c it makes Dems go ballistic----and b/c more and more women will see Team Obama for what they really are---a bunch of phonies.

Women need to ask themselves---who would they rather see come home for dinner--smiling/abusive Biden or soft-spoken, working-class Ryan?

A smart debater would bait Biden into going completely nuts..
Democrats hate being questioned and refuse to answer them..
Posed with the same question over and over makes them nuts..
When they double down and refuse to answer it makes them LOOK GUILTY...

No doubt Obama is the same way.. except he will give an answer “AS IF” it was an answer... it won’t be..
Asking him again exposing the diversion will make him crazy..
Its like pinning a bug to a bug board.. they can crawl but going nowhere..
