Whenever I state my opinion, people over 70* should not be run for POTUS, someone tells me I'm wrong and implies that I am ageist (even though I am a senior myself). This is just one more example of why I hold that opinion. According to what I have gleaned in reading the Retirement forum here, most (but certainly not all) people over 75 either have at least fairly serious health problems or soon develop them.


*Actually, I would not vote for anyone over 60 unless they had a very strong VP on the ticket.

That's debatable.

Something is very wrong. I've torn blood vessels before, and while the inside of my eye filled with blood - it was like looking through red water - the surface of my eye was still white.

I understand your reasoning but it's kind of hard to retire the old guard when there is such a dearth of competent leadership in the new guard.

Someday the AOCs will be running this country and you can forgive people for wanting to delay that from happening for as long as possible. We can't stop it but we can slow it down a little.

Biden's eye fills with blood during CNN climate town hall
by Julio BullBoxer31
& Joseph Simonson
| September 04, 2019 08:39 PM

Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to have a blood vessel burst in his left eye while participating in CNN's town hall on climate change.

A broken blood vessel in the eye, also known as a subconjuctival hemorrhage, can be caused by several things, including high blood pressure, bleeding disorders, blood thinners, or even excessive straining.

Biden, 76, has long been plagued by health issues. In 1988, he suffered an aneurysm that burst and required him to undergo emergency surgery. The then-senator was so close to death that a Catholic priest began preparing to administer the sacrament of last rites.

Months later, surgeons clipped a second aneurysm before it burst. Biden then took a seven-month leave from the Senate following the surgery. Describing the operation, he once said, “They literally had to take the top of my head off.”

Jill Biden said in her recently released autobiography Where the Light Enters that, at the time, she feared her husband would never be the same. "Our doctor told us there was a 50-50 chance Joe wouldn't survive surgery," she wrote. "He also said that it was even more likely that Joe would have permanent brain damage if he survived. And if any part of his brain would be adversely affected, it would be the area that governed speech."

Doctors removed a benign polyp during a colonoscopy in 1996. In 2003, Biden had his gallbladder removed.

He suffers from asthma and allergies and takes a prescription drug to lower his cholesterol. He has also taken medication for an enlarged prostate.

Biden hasn’t disclosed his medical history since 2008, when doctors found he had an irregular heartbeat.


Biden has also raised eyebrows for the increasing number of verbal blunders he has made so far on the 2020 campaign trail, the schedule of which has been markedly lighter than his main rivals.

Those close to Biden nevertheless maintain that he is "a picture of health," according to a former aide who spoke to the Washington Examiner in April. Were he to win the 2020 presidential election, he would be the oldest president ever to be inaugurated.

How selfish of Biden to run for President while in such poor health.

All these senile dudes over 70, wealthy beyond reason from sc***ing others or taking lobbyist handouts, should retire. Enjoy life while you can, instead of making countless bad decisions that affect others that are still trying to make a life dodging your obstacles.

The reason they are politicians is due to their ego, lust for power, and the limelight in addition to the wealth.
