Fox’s Dr. Keith Ablow: Biden
Debate Performance Suggests
He May Have Dementia (Or
Maaaybe Abuses Alcohol)

Mediaite, by Alex Alvarez

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/15/2012 2:37:21 PM

Fox News’ go-to psychiatrist, Keith Ablow, appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend to discuss Joe Biden‘s debate performance. Given that Biden’s laughter, smirks, and malarkeyisms had been dissected pretty thoroughly by the time Sunday rolled around, Ablow had his work cut out for him. How, he must have asked himself, will I make my mark? What will make people pay attention? How does one cut through the noise? Well. With more noise, obviously. Let’s begin by noting that Ablow was asked about what Biden’s debate behavior suggests about his “personality,”

Comments:
Uh oh. Dr. Ablow can expect a call from the regime. Doesn't he know you aren't allowed to say things like this about them. s/o Could his erratic behavior be caused by the brain aneurysm he had years ago?

I have two working theories, in addition to dementia. Gin martinis or nitrous oxide.

First he laughs and grins, uncontrollably, for over an hour, then, like the switch is flipped, he's sooooooooooooo serious.

WEIRD!

Dr. Ablow is the psychiatrist Lou Dobbs has on frequently to discuss pResident 0bama's mental health.
Dr. Ablow says “Obama seems to suffer from malignant narcissism whereby he feels he is exceptional, acts like he is exceptional and his followers believe he is exceptional. On the basis of his followers opinion, Obama feels even more justified in his exceptionalism...”

Charles Krauthammer, PhD (a trained psychiatrist) asks: Does the narcissism of this man ()bama) know no bounds?

So we have an alcoholic and a malignant narcissist ruining/running the country and 47% couldn't be bothered. Thank goodness we still have 53% sane people on board.
Would be great if the election ended up 53% Romney and 47% 0bama. The irony.

#1, I've thought the same thing. His odd behavior isn't restricted to his inappropriate laughter during the debate, but there is a medical condition called Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA), one of the symptoms is laughing at inappropriate times. It can occur in people who have had a stroke, brain trauma, Alzheimer’s, etc. (After the debate I did a little googling).

Remember that odd picture with the biker chick sitting in his lap? Talk about inappropriate behavior. He's almost 70 years old, married, and the Vice-President of the United States! I don't mean to make light of any medical condition here, I just think there must be some explanation. Other that that he's just a weirdo with no business one heartbeat away from the White House.

Alvarez doesn't like the unflattering things that Ablow says and he attempts to discredit Ablow by saying he's inconsistent. However, Alvarez does not (and cannot) defend Biden himself because what Ablow says rings true with most viewers. If it doesn't then Biden isn't harmed by what Ablow says, so why fret?

Biden's antics were quite intentional. He wanted to make Ryan mad, then Joe would go all Pit Bull on Ryan. Ryan never reacted to Joe's increasingly frantic antics, so Joe just came off looking like an out-of-control drunk/boor/lunatic, take your pick. Ryan did exactly what he had to do: he didn't react to Biden's baiting.

There was an Op/Ed piece in Forbes back in August (8/20/2012)entitled: Joe Biden's Gaffes Call For A Thorough Neurological Examination that suggested the same thing.

The column listed all of the "gaffes" that Biden has made ... and reached a conclusion about his behavior.

A drunk may become dry, but STILL not be sober. I spent my entire childhood growing up with an alcoholic, who from time to time dried out, but never acted sober. They have been drunk for decades and believe that their drunk behavior is their correct behavior and know nothing else.
Joe Biden is just like the person I knew.

Biden had a couple of drinks before the debate, and probably afterwards. The dementia is alcohol related. His IQ is average, but he doesn't apply himself, so his answers are not likely to have anything to do with the subject. He will never quit politics, because he knows he is nothing without the power.

Re: Biden's "mood change" towards the end of the debate. I've seen that abrupt change in behavior in a long-time alcohol abuser. The person in question could socialize & schmooze at parties & seemed to be having a good time & did not appear drunk. I was counting his drinks and knew that he had quite a few (he was what they call a high-functioning drunk). Suddenly, he would get a far-away, glassy stare & became almost semi-catatonic & morose. I would not put it past Biden to have had a few belts before the debate.

I really think everyone is missing this. He wasn't drunk or crazy, that's just the way he is. He's a bully. I used to know guys like that...just laugh and smile and put you down, then get real serious and almost threatening. This is bullying behavior. I have seen it in business--a boss who doesn't like someone scoffing at an idea--in order to make him look like he "get's it" and the other guy look foolish.

It's non-physical bullying, and Biden is great at it. He's just running by the liberal playbook.

Let's not try to over-think this and make medical or drug excuses for the guy. This was the real man.

It isn't that hard to explain. He is a loudmouthed bully who has learned you CAN tell a bold lie if you are emphatic about it. It comes from living in DC his entire life. A low ball lawyer by training, he knows the media and how to play it and he feels entitled from being a 'lawmaker,' to do whatever he wants. None of the laws he participates in, affect him, so why should he worry about ANY thing he does? He pretends to be a 'working' man and enough people, at least in Delaware, believe him.

Ablow is excellent. I have never heard him say anything that was not well-reasoned.

Now, who is Alex Alvarez? She apparently moved from Media Bistro (what's that?) to Mediaite amidst much insider fanfare.

Her qualifications to question, let alone threaten the career of, Dr. Ablow - or his appearances on Fox News? Zero.

So pipe down or we'll send you to your room for a timeout.

Poor Joe had a brain aneurysm 24-25 years ago. Doesn't anyone else remember this? And he had several seizures after that diagnosis/surgery. Perhaps the sequela to a brain aneurysm is this type of behavior, years later.

Or he could have Organic Brain Syndrome, from drink.

Or indeed it could be as #21 says -- he's a bully, an abusive intimidating bully. I was married to someone like that.

Oh! Now I recognize the antics of Biden. No disparaging but he is, after all, Irish. Most of my Irish Uncles and my dad were alcoholics and died of dementia. Also had a bullying streak. Considered themselves macho Irish men who could do anything amoral and treat their women disgracefully. Remember the Kennedys? And lookie here: Old Joe exhibits some of those qualities. Go figure. I laughed at Dr. Ablow's comments.

#28,

Paul Ryan is Irish as well, yet he has a sharp mind, an even temper and a likeable personality. He's a number cruncher extraordinaire, and he's demonstrated that we can trust him with our nation's finances. I really don't think nationality is an issue here, and stereotypes can't explain what's going on.

Brain surgery isn't the same as wart removal surgery, and the fact Biden's had two is certainly worth our concern.

As I recall his brain surgery had to do with two "berry" aneurysms. They usually take care of these with a nonsurgical procedure involving a coil, but I believe that one of Joey's began to leak - a medical emergency.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
