Myths about concerns over Joe’s cognitive decline

I’ve noticed a lot of questionable or false information posted here that needs to be dispelled.

Myth 1: Concerns about Joe’s declined began 2 weeks.

That’s false. Concerns have periodically come up since the summer of 2019. People are more focused on it now because we are about to nominate a guy who may be in cognitive decline.

Myth 2: Joe’s behavior can be explained in other ways.

That may be true, but so far the explanation have been spin, which is not a good sign. It’s not just the many incidents that are a red flag. It’s never a good sign in politics when a candidate is being kept out of the public eye.

For example, what explains his agitation in yelling at a reasonable voter question?

You can probably spin it , but as someone who has dealt with someone in cognitive decline, when the examples start to mount, one should at least ask and answer the question through medical testing rather than pretending the question is inappropriate.the shtick of denial only raises more red flags. Where us the evidence this testing has been done ?

Myth 3: in order for Bernie to react to this, he needs to deny any questions as a smear.

First, this flies in the face of Sanders’ position on his own health. He said that the health of a candidate is info that voters should have.

Why then are signs of Joe’s potential cognitive decline a smear if there is a pattern of strange behavior?

Why shouldn’t we as voters and citizens not ask these questions?

My view is that we deserve to know the answer based on testing Biden for his cognitive status and it’s not a smear to ask this of all our candidates.

My view is also that Bernie could simply say that questions like this are valid but should he answered through doctors.

Myth 4: Going negative by asking these questions during the primary will hurt Joe if he’s the nominee.

First, it’s clear Democrats don’t remember 2008. 2016 pales in comparison. And 2020, pales in comparison to 2016.

More importantly, now is the time vet Joe for this through medical testing rather than after Trump has run hundreds of millions in ads and free media has turned on Joe when he acts erratically in the general at some point.

Apparently, some are too young to remember Kerry. Then, as now, Democratic voters decided to take on the role of tv pundit to guess who non Democrats will vote for in the fall.

The problem with this approach is that Democratic voters suck at making this judgment. What should concern everyone is that Joe has lost independents in 13 to 16 states.

What’s going to happen when these voters realize that Joe maybe suffering from cognitive decline?

I should point out that I don’t think my concerns are being raised with Sanders by his advisors. Some of them were capitulating days ago. I think the die is cast. However, I think Joe ‘s cognitive issue will come up in the general and we will lose if they turn out to be real.

I originally registered with the It's the Owner Not the Breed Party. Stuck around there for a few years but didn't like the direction they were going. Moved on over to the Alimony Liberation Front (only active in Alaska). We have to do everything we can to get this dang Trump guy out of there and Bernie is the one to do it.
