The Delaware lawmaker's biggest health issue concerns two brain aneurysms he had surgery for in 1988. Dr. Eisold had written that Biden has "recovered fully without continued effects" from the aneurysm, but the records released Monday did not reveal whether or not Biden has had periodic brain imaging done since his surgeries.His comments Sunday, made at two separate events, that America will face external threats if we elect Barack Obama prove that 1) either Joe has an important screw that has come loose, or 2) he believes deeply, as any informed American would, that McCain must win this election.
The campaign assured reporters that they would release additional records about follow-up brain scans, but they have yet to do so.
Doctors say a look at Biden's MRI's would reveal the likelyhood of future anyeurisms, but it appears there haven't been any done since his surgery 20 years ago.So there is a real chance that not a screw, but a clip, has come loose - which might explain why Biden voted against the Alaska Oil Pipeline. Or why he voted against the first gulf war. Or why he voted to make illegal aliens eligible for social security.
However, ABC News can now confirm that Biden has never had a follow-up MRI because the metal clips used on the aneurysms in 1988 are "not compatible" with that test, according to an Obama-Biden aide.
The aide said the Delaware senator did have tests of some kind following the 1988 surgery that showed he was "aneurysm free," but could not provide details of what these tests were or when and where they were performed.There's obviously something they're hiding.
In addition to a form of MRI, another test often used to detect brain aneurysms is a CT scan, sometimes called a CAT scan. A CT scan is a special type of X-ray that allows doctors to see weaknesses in the walls of brain arteries. It is possible that Biden might have had such a procedure, but again the campaign has not confirmed any specifics about any tests done.
