Well after Bidens two aneurysms and his lung clot that almost killed him. Nothing at all like a cut on the head requiring stitches.

threat. Joe is still on medications, blood thinners for his clot and aneurysms. Why? Because they could happen again. Bernie stints worked, he needs no heart medication they worked so well and his boo boo on his head is all healed.

takes, I know his blood count, I know his cholesterol levels I know the surgeries he has had, he has had gout,( so have I) esophageal reflux, he has had diverticulitis. He had a hernia repaired, he had a cyst removed from his vocal cord. He had a skein lesion removed. Oh and he has had lumbar strain. He's current on his colonoscopies and his electrocardiogram showed normal sinus rhythm.

He has had one heart attack and had two stents inserted, he has never had any signs of congestive heat failure. The heart chambers sizes, wall thickness and heart valves are all normal. His doctors say he's very healthy.

What the hell else do you need to know?

90. Please. I read what his heart specialists, said about his heart attack. He's fine. Why don't you

 

read it. What more do you want to know? He has cancer and is hiding it? His childhood diseases? Does he take viagra? Does he do meth? Is he a drunk? Scratch the drunk part, he rarely drinks according to the report and he's doesn't smoke. What the fuck do you want to know? He doesn't have AFib, a heart disease Biden has and takes medication to control it. AFibs can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. PSA , you should be more concerned about that considering Bidens two aneurysms and almost fatal blood clot.

What are you looking for? Besides a cudgel to bash him with.

and go for many years without another, that often being due to major changes in lifestyle and diet. In Bernie's case, however, the heart attack was very recent and was followed by the stress of nonstop campaigning, instead of recuperating.

70. Do go on and pretend that Biden also promised "comprehensive" medical records

 

by the end of the year...


Sanders plans to release health records by end of year

The 78-year-old Vermont senator has repeatedly promised to release his health records at some point, but he outlined a likely timeline in an interview with The Associated Press.

“I want to make it comprehensive,” Sanders said in explaining the delay. “The answer is I will, probably by the end of the year.”


https://www.businessinsider.com/bernie-sanders-heart-attack-medical-records-campaign-2019-10

“The American people have a right to know whether the person they’re going to be voting for for president is healthy,” Sanders said at the time. “And we will certainly release our medical records before the primary.”


Sanders told host Jonathan Karl that he intends to release his medical records "as soon as we can," with "all of the information that's available," and added that he believes that same standard should "should be applicable to all candidates."



Desperate false equivalencies do not credibility bestow.

We know Bidens issues, he provided the information.

Sanders got a note from the doctors saying he was fit to be the President.

Also hid was the name of the kibbutz in Israel where he hung out with Trotsky and Stalin lovers in 1963. He was asked about this a lot. Revealed in 2016

And none out this came out during the years and years of media interviews with the quirky rumpled socialist from leafy Vermont.

It took Politico and Israeli news site Haaretz to dig these things up. I'm sure that any further digging would reveal more.

Re Bernie's media appearances: No wonder this is his favorite sport.

29. average life expectancy for 78 year old white man who has heart attack

 

about 4-5 years.

I'm guessing the presidency is enough of a stressor to shorten the time.
So Bernie if elected dies in office.

'When a man repeats a promise again and again, he means to fail you.' - English Proverb

You wonder why his support among those 65 and above is a laughable 4%? They've seen his kind before - the one the NYT referred to as 'overpromiser' - and aren't buying a word of it.

Things like this just reaffirm my doubts and stoke my suspicions that there's more going on and someone in the BS campaign fears that if we saw it all, it might hurt his chances. After his "fainting spell" in the hotel where he cracked-open his skull... and after his heart attack and stent procedure (which was NOT "outpatient" as some claimed because something like that is a VERY serious procedure, you don't just pop-in and go home the same afternoon. It's not like LASIK or a spider-vein procedure.)

62. The Grand Pronouncement (Trumpets Ablare): Sanders - Voters have a 'right to know' about my health.'

 

Now, The Decidedly Less Grand Blithe Chirp to Softball Todd (trombone doing fail sound): Bernie - "We have released as much documentation I think as any other candidate. "You can start releasing medical records and it never ends..." ""We have released the substantive part of all of our medical records. We have cardiologists who have [confirmed] I am in good health. I am in good health."

So much for right to know. Take hint to those waiting for your 'right to a job,' 'right to housing,' and 'right to a free education.'

WaPo (aka Bernie hater's capitalist rag):

"Thus far Sanders has only released letters from his physicians, not full records. That choice has attracted criticism from a number of corners, including the Washington Post editorial board, which criticized Sanders earlier this month for not making good on his promise of a full disclosure.

"Mr. Sanders, like everyone running for president and currently serving as president, should be totally forthcoming about his health. The inadequacy of doctor letters in lieu of records was underscored in 2016 by the ludicrous letter from then-candidate Donald Trump's gastroenterologist," the board wrote. "So far, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), 70, has provided the most information, releasing a letter from her physician and five pages of supporting medical data. Former vice president Joe Biden, 77, released a three-page letter from his physician outlining his current condition and medical history."

The 78-year-old presidential candidate suffered a heart attack last October. He repeatedly promised to disclose his medical records before and after the incident took place.

"The people do have a right to know about the health of a senator, somebody who's running for president of the United States, full disclosure," Sanders told CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, following the incident. "And, we will make at the appropriate time, all of our medical records public for you or anybody else who wants to see them."

68. This, plus his taste in campaign hires that point to VP pick and staff

 

should scare the hell out of everyone, at least those who claim they want to see real change in this country. This should be getting far more attention. If he's nominated, it will be a disaster even if he somehow managed a miracle and won. No candidate who isn't center-right would ever have a chance again. This decision alone is disqualifying. Anybody but Bernie.

74. His whole backstory is messed up. Even the birth announcements.

 

Found this - The left back home turned on him. LOL

Bernie the [redacted] Bad Week

'Bernie became an imperialist to get elected in 1990.
In August, 1990–after the Bush administration enticed Iraq into
invading Kuwait–Sanders said he wasn’t “going to let some damn
war cost him the election,” according to a staff member who was
present at the time. So Sanders backed the buildup in the Persian Gulf
and dumped on the left anti-imperialist peace movement, singling
out his former allies like Dave Dellinger for public criticism.

He lost in 1988 Congressional race, the last time
the Democratic party ran an official candidate against him. In
that election Sanders and the Democrat, Paul Poirer, split the
majority of votes and the election went to the Republican, Peter Smith.

Bernie–out of office for the first time in eight years–
then went to the Kennedy School at Harvard for six months and came
back with a new relationship with the state’s Democrats. The
Vermont Democratic Party leadership has allowed no authorized
candidate to run against Bernie in 1990 (or since) and in return,
Bernie has repeatedly blocked third party building. His closet party,
the Democrats, are very worried about a left 3rd party forming in
Vermont. In the last two elections, Sanders has prevented
Progressives in his machine from running against Howard Dean,
our conservative Democratic Governor who was ahead of Gingrich in
the attack on welfare.'

Bernie Sanders’ early days in Vermont: His life, loves and circuitous route to politics (Jul 9 2015)

'One period of his life, the years from 1964 to 1971, however, has been left unexplained. In media profiles of the senator, Sanders is transported from graduation at the University of Chicago to his idealistic foray into politics with the Liberty Union party.'

You don't say.

'News reports have pegged his move to Vermont to much later in the 1960s, and the locations cited are either Burlington, as the New York Times reported recently, or Middlesex, which is tied to the purchase of a piece of land with his then-wife Deborah as Mother Jones reported in May.

Both accounts are incorrect.

As is a story from the National Journal that reports Sanders lived in New York City immediately after graduation.

Though Sanders’ early days in Vermont have been portrayed as that of a revolutionary, his actual life in the late 1960s and early 1970s was like that of any 20-something.

Sanders came to Vermont with Deborah Messing, his college sweetheart, in 1964. Recently married, they bought 85 acres in central Vermont that August for $2,500. It’s been called the sugar shack in the press, and a love shack by locals in the town of Middlesex, but the small structure on Shady Rill Road wasn’t by any means a permanent residence. It had running water and no electricity. Messing and Sanders left Vermont and traveled through Europe, just as the war in Vietnam was escalating. About 18 months later, in 1966, they divorced.'

However, lets be real. This is a political campaign and Bernie will do what he thinks will best help his chances, just like every other candidate would. His goal is to get the nomination, then win in November so he can start saving this country. He will do whatever he thinks will best get him to the goal. And if he thinks now is not the time to release more records then he will not.
