How Healthy Is He? McCain Releases His Medical Records

John McCain released his medical records from 2000-2008 today. According to the AP, the 71-year-old maverick's health issues are pretty common for someone his age. In the not-so-common column, as a result of war injuries, the former prisoner of war has degenerative arthritis that might mean a future joint replacement. The group of journalists, handpicked by McCain, could not keep, nor photocopy the documents.

So what's the fuss? In 2000, McCain underwent surgery for his Stage 2A melanoma, a form of cancer that kills a third of sufferers within 10 years. Judging by his records, medical experts think McCain's early treatment and constant checkups mean he has a very low risk of reoccurrence. McCain said last week that there will be no surprises and that the doctors have assured him he is in good health. Besides, his mom is 96 years old!

Do you think Americans have an appetite for McCain's health history? Should the issue of age, just like race, be taken off the table this campaign season? Should voters be asking for Hillary and Obama's health histories too?

Seriously, all I can think about when I come to this thread is that McCain's mom is Jessica Tandy.

OK, I'm getting back on this topic. I think that in all fairness, they should check out the physical and mental health of all candidates.

So, issues aside, he shouldn't be president because he is old? But we should let a young guy in with the most liberal views of any candidate ever no matter how much it will split this country apart because of his age? Interesting.

Jillness, I was being completely tongue and cheek with my comment. Everyone here knows you like Obama and that you aren't hiding it. Not everything I say deserves an attack. I am not evil. It was a joke.

Harmony I did not recognize you! Kris, I know. I am screwed with a hunter of a dog. But I love her anyway :love: And would not trade her any other dog.

I have tried that. Even physically turning her head. Nothing has worked. Maybe a fog horn would do the trick :ponder:

Lucy settles down when you grab her nose, or smack it lightly. it's like she sort of snaps back to reality.

I had a chain for Kasey, it did not do anything. She becomes so focused when she is walked nothing breaks that focus. She knows all the commands, I just can't get her to pay attention to me when she sees another dog. It really is a huge source of stress for me. She is not an easy dog to walk at all. I don't muzzle her, but the reason why I don't is because in our old neighborhood there were so many dogs off leash and sometimes they would attack, and I did not feel comfortable with her not being able to defend me or herself.

seriously, ya'll are ALL making me feel so much better. I should pay you guys and not my therapist. :ROTFL:
KrisSugar KrisSugar 8 years
thanks cine! that makes me feel so much better! i think the same thing about having to put her down if someone was really intent on it. it depends on the person. like the neighbor whose dog she attacked, that lady was really easy going and forgiving. (not to mention it was her fault, and I had warned her). i just worry that she might attack some litigious person's dog! ugh.
