I’m concerned about Joe Biden’s mental health. Obama should insist on a complete neurological exam.

While some pundits are brushing off Joe Biden’s many nonsensical statements as just “Joe just being Joe,”  I, for one, am very concerned about Joe Biden’s mental health.

President Obama should insist on a thorough neurological exam for Joe Biden before placing him into nomination for a second term as Vice President.

Is Biden suffering from Alzheimers or some form of dementria?

A comprehensive neurological exam will give us the answer.

Biden raised eyebrows most recently when he insisted in a speech to a predominantly black audience that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are “gonna put y’all back in chains.”

But this is just the latest in an endless catalogue of bizarre statements by Joe Biden, who often doesn’t seem to know where he is or even what century he’s living in. Much of the time, he appears to be confused, addled.

How long has he had dementia? How serious is it? Is his mental state due to age, stress of the job, or something else? Can he regain his mental faculties with some time off?

A neurological exam by a team of experts at the Mayo Clinic will give us the answer.

The doctors will ask Joe such questions as “What day is it? How old are you? Where do you live? What are the names of your children?”

Biden will receive a CAT Scan where we will learn if he’s suffered brain damage — perhaps as the result of age, disease, excessive prescription drug use, or some kind of accident we don’t know about.

In many states, senior citizens are required to get retested to keep their driver’s license.  This is a man who is one heartbeat away from being President of the United States. The American people deserve to know if he’s fit to serve as Vice President, much less President.

One or two crazy statements here and there would not be so alarming. But Biden is now saying crazy things every time he speaks, every time he opens his mouth.  I actually listened to Biden’s entire “y’all in chains” speech, and very little of it made any sense at all.  While listening to Biden, I felt like the Jack Nicholson character (Randle McMurphy) in “One Who Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”

It should be clear to anyone who listens to Biden speak for two minutes that  he is not all there,  not compos mentis. It’s not that he’s making statements I disagree with. It’s that his speeches make no sense whatsoever. I strongly disagree with what Barack Obama is saying most of the time. But at least his speeches make sense. When Obama speaks, it’s at least clear what he’s talking about.

Not so with Biden.

Biden’s speeches don’t seem to be about anything. They’re basically just random, disjointed musings — mostly gibberish.

He’s like the Chauncey Gardiner character in “Being There.”

That was a very funny movie.  Peter Sellers was terrific as the bumbling, moronic Chauncey Gardiner. But this is real life. This is no laughing matter.

Here’s a partial list of some of Biden’s bizarro statements:

“This is a big fucking deal!” — Joe Biden, caught on an open mic congratulating President Barack Obama during the health care signing ceremony, Washington, D.C., March 23, 2010

{Justice Potter Stewart died in 1985}

“Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me.” –Joe Biden, speaking at a town hall meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire, Sept. 10, 2008 (Source)

{Biden stumbles into the truth on this one}

“A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!” — Joe Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama after being announced as his running mate, Springfield, Ill., Aug. 23, 2008 (Watch video clip)

{Imagine what would happen if Paul Ryan said something this racist}

“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent…. I’m not joking.” –Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006 (Watch video clip)

{Or if Paul Ryan said something this racist}

The Bottom Line . . .

There are some, like Rudy Giuliani, who say Biden is just not very bright, that’s he’s a stupid man. As part of the treasure trove of evidence to support this thesis, they cite the fact that Biden was caught plagiarizing twice – once in law school and then again when he plagiarized a speech by British Labour Party Leader Neil Kinnock (while running for President in 1988).

So there’s a strong case to be made that Joe Biden is a very stupid man.

That might be true . . . also.

But stupid people at least make sense when they speak. When a two-year old or a retarded person says “I want a cookie,” that makes sense. We understand what’s being said.

When Biden speaks, we have no idea what he’s babbling about. His speeches are the ravings of a mad man.

It’s clear this man is trapped in some kind of disconnected “Alice in Wonderland”-type dream world. He’s off in LaLa Land somewhere. America deserves to know the full extent of Joe Biden’s dementia.
