She already is clinging to power, her popularity is a major problem for her party given her open borders policy and the disaster that has been. She is hidden away by the CDU during electioneering but this latest issue with her health is too much. She now needs to step down. I wish her a speedy recovery but it is time to go and hanging on is doing nobody any favours. We do not know her illness nor the medication she may be on. Her medical problems may be influencing her decision making.

Nah........ she's said she's FINE...again.

So delusionary - which is a problem.
Or lying for public consumption - which is a problem.
Or she's still the best the party has - which is a problem.

Some here would have us believe that signs of a neurological disorder affecting motor function are clear evidence of declining mental competence.

Would that such experts were around to advise Professor Hawking to give up all that physics nonsense at the first sign of trouble! Or tell Franklin Roosevelt not to run for public office.

Everyone knew about FDR and Prof Hawking and were thus able to understand.
All we know about Merkel are symptoms of some disorder and a feeble, ongoing, cover-up.

She is quite obviously ill and the denials do not help. If she came clean and stated the nature of her illness that would help kill any speculation. But she has not.
She has a duty to be open and honest on this issue, she is a senior world leader and her decisions have far-reaching implications. Perhaps her illness and medication do not influence her mental capacity but we need to know.

Although she did study physics as well - her achievements in her thesis being another issue of non-discussion - she does now have a slightly different job description than a genius quantum physicist. I don't think Prof. Hawkins would have made a good politician and statesman either.

The only time I've seen people shake like that is when they're either freezing cold or suffering form Parkinsons

Just sayin'

Benign essential tremor (if that's what it is) has no effect whatsoever on cognitive function, but thanks for your expert opinion.
My father, at 90yo, has severe benign essential tremor, particularly in his arms. My own GP, after meeting him, privately described him to me as an object lesson in not underestimating the elderly; he's as sharp as a tack.

Benign essential tremor is about three times as common as Parkinsons. I'd make a sarcastic comment thanking you for your expertise if it weren't for how often I've seen qualified medical practioners assume my father has Parkinsons until told otherwise. Sadly people who have no excuse for not knowing better are just as bad as you!

Yep. my first thought too, I used to work with a lovely chap with Parkinsons and he had similar symptoms.

I offered no medical diagnosis but I see you have.

She is very clearly ill, and her PR people keep telling everyone there is nothing wrong, indeed the first incident was blamed on her being dehydrated.
Please reread my post - If her condition or the medication she may be taking can influence her decision making she needs to step down. The fact she has not come clean only adds to the speculation.

It's pretty clear (with the benefit of hindsight) that FDR's declining health in early 1945 helped lead to disastrous agreements with Stalin at Yalta regarding post war Europe. These issues with FDR, plus periods during Eisenhower's administration when he was recovering from two heart attacks, lead to new laws in the US that require the POTUS to relinquish his (or her) responsibilities to the VP if their health is preventing them being able to perform their duties as POTUS.

As DroneDog notes, the simple fact they are keeping whatever the issues are secret just makes it worse. If it was something that obviously didn't affect her fitness for office, why keep it a secret?

The dire state of FDR's health in his last two terms, his third and fourth, are taken to be one reason why we now have a two-term limit for the presidency. (Before him there was Woodrow Wilson, incapacitated by a stroke, with his wife supposedly running things in his stead. That was also at a time when the press was expected not to look at the state of a president's health.)

I notice more German press coverage of Merkel's health after her third attack of whatever this is, her tremors. It is hard to see her party allowing her to continue with this problem she has. Sooner or later she's going to tip over, and nobody has ventured a guess at what is wrong with her. It's certainly not dehydration; that would have been a hard sell for just one occurrence, where now she has had three fits of the shakes.

An interesting open letter to Frau Merkel from a small business owner in Germany.
Google translate is your friend here, I believe no one would have dared write this 5 yrs ago in Germany,

Quote, from a doctor: A woman in her 60s working extremely long hours in a demanding role at a challenging time develops an episodic tremor while standing in the heat. What’s wrong with her? Dehydration or Parkinson’s disease? Deep fear or multiple sclerosis? Raging sepsis or dementia? This ridiculous question would rightly be thrown out of a medical curriculum because any reasonable clinician would insist on the need for a detailed history and examination followed by appropriate tests and often further observation before pronouncing a diagnosis, especially one with serious consequences for the patient and family. So why the rush to diagnose Merkel from television footage?

Somebody else suggested essential tremor. Based on my very limited experience, I'm pretty sure she doesn't have essential tremor, but I was bristling at the suggestion that if she did, it compromises her cognitive abilities.

Nonsense, I'm not trying to diagnose what's wrong with the woman. However it's pretty obvious there is something wrong. There are three possibilities:
Her doctor's know what it is, and it's not something that would adversely affect her cognitive abilities. If that's the case why are they keeping it secret (or worse, intentionally providing misleading information)?
They don't know what it is. If they don't they damn well need to figure it out before it does permanent damage to her health or even kills her, and determine if it could affect her cognitive abilities.
Her doctors know what's wrong, and it is something that could affect her cognitive abilities. Keeping it a secret is not only wrong, it's dangerous to the country and perhaps even to Europe as a whole.

She has said it's psychosomatic.
So that's alright then.

She is not an ordinary member of the public, she is a world leader whose decision making will have serious implications. Also, this is not a one-off event, there has been a number of incidents, she appeared yesterday on television very short of breath at the Bastille celebrations.
Her inner circle know exactly what is wrong with her, I am sure she has a superb medical team so why don't they release a statement to clarify her condition.

I expect anyone in a position of power or control (pilots included) to come clean if they are suffering from a medical condition that may affect their performance. Pilot error is pretty much immediate, political errors are rather more long term.

Simple solution. Draft ones own letter, pull up outside of Trumps GP office, have bodyguards run in whilst the limo engine is still running and hand over said letter for a quick signature. Then proceed to tell the world how wonderfully healthy you are. Job done.
