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.

LA MESA, Calif. - A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state´s Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party. The couple – who did not want their identity revealed – received the letter and voter registration card from their health insurance provider Covered California, the state-run agency that implements President Obama´s Affordable Care Act.

If you do a quick Internet search for "Gwyneth Paltrow," you´ll find an onslaught of furious comments about the actress. Alhough the 41-year-old often stirs up controversy (thanks to everything from her touting her own wood-burning pizza oven to referring to her recent breakup as a "conscious uncoupling"), this latest reaction is due, in part, to a New York Post open letter to Paltrow regarding an interview she gave on the challenges of being a movie-star mom. On Wednesday, Paltrow, who announced her split from husband Chris Martin this week, told E! News, “I think it´s different when you have an

Earlier this week Bill O’Reilly called Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee a “race hustler” and Lee shot back at O’Reilly’s “disgusting and divisive” language. On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman? You like that better?” O’Reilly condemned Lee for “flat-out calling people with whom she disagrees racist” and then having “the gall, the nerve”

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

White House takes step toward

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

I´m living proof.” Beard said he was paying $428 a month for chemotherapy treatment and was upset when he got a notice from his insurer saying his plan would be canceled. But he said

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said
