Biden’s Brain

Dick Morris, former adviser to Bill Clinton, last week published an editorial in which he strongly suggested that Joe Biden has been exhibiting “gaffs” that are sufficiently bizarre and numerous to indicate real mental decline. He then goes on to present a petition for readers to sign demanding that Biden submit to several tests to determine whether he is suffering from any one of several types of dementia. A similar article from another source also came out in Breitbart on the web. In that piece several Sanders supporters made similar allegations. The counter argument, of course, is that these individuals are biased and that Biden did an acceptable job in his most recent one-onone debate with Sanders. It is suggested that the other slips were the result of being tired. Long hours and little sleep, of course, are a common occurrence during political campaigns as well as during presidential terms. In light of that, even ascribing the “gaffs” to tiredness is still troubling. We need a president who remains gaff-free even when exhausted. It is easy, of course, to imagine that a candidate may have mental problems. Three years ago liberal psychologists were making long-distance, off-the-cuff diagnoses indicating that candidate and shortly thereafter president Trump should be removed from office on the grounds that he was mentally unfit. Those allegations proved baseless. The same cannot be said for Joe Biden. The same cannot be said for Joe Biden. Dick Morris points out that years ago Biden went through two brain operations. In the first instance an artery burst and had to be repaired. Then several months later a second aneurysm was discovered and had to be stitched up. It is highly likely that bleeding coupled with the operations damaged portions of Joe Biden’s brain. When he was younger his brain compensated for the loss. As he has aged, however, the damage has come front and center and is affecting his thinking. In the words of one psychiatrist, the damage has resulted in a specific kind of dementia. Since there appears to be a logical physical basis for Biden’s behavior, this issue may well be more than the fantasizing of his enemies and opponents. The matter therefore needs to be investigated and the results of that investigation need to be made public. If Biden wins the upcoming election he will enter office as the oldest candidate to ever begin a presidential term. By the time he ...
