Bernie Sanders Reneges On Pledge To Release Health Records

Breitbart
John Nolte
11 Feb 2020

Excerpt:

A post-heart attack Bernie Sanders is now reneging on a promise he made to release his health records.

Hereís the timeline:

In September of 2019, Bernie said this about releasing his medical history: ďI think itís the right thing to do. The American people have the right know whether the person theyíre going to be voting for president is healthy, and we will certainly release our medical records before the primaries. It will certainly be before the first votes are cast.Ē

The following month, the 78-year-old frontrunner to win the Democrat nomination for president of the United States had a full-blown heart attack.

Then, on Monday, Bernie told Chuck Todd he will not release his medical records as promised:

*snip*

So what changed?

What happened between the September pledge to release his health records and now?

The answer is obvious: Bernie had a full-fledged heart attack.

Hot Airís Ed Morrissey compares Bernieís broken promise to Donald Trump breaking his 2015 pledge to release his tax returns, which is fair enough Ö to a point. There are two important distinctions: in-between Trumpís promise to release his tax returns and his breaking of that promise, there was no financial equivalent of a heart attack. What I mean is, the Feds didnít raid Trump Tower for his financial recordsÖ That kind of thing.

Secondly, no third party has vetted and signed off on Bernieís health records. But a third party has indeed vetted every page of Trumpís tax returns ó the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Iím not justifying Trump breaking his pledge, and I think he should release his tax returns. But Iím not apoplectic over it because I know the IRS ó an unbiased third party ó has already gone through them.s sworn in as president, he will be a mere eight months away from 80-years-old.s sworn in as president, he will be a mere eight months away from 80-years-old.

Yes, Bernie released letters from his doctors, but those doctors work for him, they are in his employ.

And yes, I know Trump only released a letter from his doctor, but Trump didnít have a heart attack.

Bernie had a freakiní heart attack just a few months ago, and if heís sworn in as president, he will be a mere eight months away from 80-years-old.

Listen, politicians break promises all the time. During the 2008 Democrat primary, Barack Obama repeatedly promised to accept public financing in the general election. Then, upon winning the primary, Barry immediately violated that promise. Simply put, the cash advantage this gave him over his Republican opponent, John McCain, was more important than his promise.

Winning was more important than his promise.

If he's had damage done to his heart because of the heart attack and manages to win the nomination, there's no way he'll stand up to the rigors of campaigning against Trump.

Bernie had open heart surgery after his heart attack. Doctors removed a hammer and sickle.

Remember all the sturm and drang over Richard Cheney's heart condition back in 2000 and again in 2004 when he was on the ticket for VP? Yeah, I thought so. NHP is right; he'll never stand up to the rigors of a national campaign. For one thing, he's too damned angry all the time. He goes red faced and bulging, just like Biden. He'll pop a cork before the primaries are over if it remains contentious on the Dem side.

And, if he pops a cork, that will be the perfect time for the dems to wheel in the heroine, Michelle or even Hillary.

He looks to me like he's kind of having a heart attack every time he speaks.

They did a blood test on him, said it was dust and that they could not tell what type that he had without carbon dating it?

I wouldn't be surprised.

So in advance, for the record, I don't CARE that he is not releasing them. If the Dems want to nominate someone who is 77 and in poor health who has no chance of beating President Trump, then I say more power to them.

Perfectly put.

I don't care whether or not Republicans release health records, so by the very same measure I don't care whether or not Democrats release them either. Bernie's negatives go way beyond mere health issues anyway. If he was elected (NEVER gonna happen) his destruction of everything America is supposed to stand for will be the biggest negative, not his health.

Thankfully, he could never be elected in the first place.

It's still amusing that he first made a big show of saying that he would release them, and then he turned right around and welshed on his word. It would be one thing if he had just always said he would NOT release them, but what he actually did is more like if he had tossed the public a quarter and then yanked on a string that he had secretly attached to that quarter.

Speaking of which, did you see this Bernie Sanders campaign ad? I especially get a kick out of his interactions with the various working shmoes:
