Where's Hillary?
The Weekly Standard ^

Posted on 12/26/2012 8:29:59 AM PST by ConservativeMan55

On December 15, the day after the day after the shooting at a school in Newtown, Connecticut, State Department officials notified the press that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had fallen ill. "While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion," deputy assistant secretary Philippe Reines said in a statement to the press.

This all stinks to high heaven!

She's just trying to stay away from the public long enough so that her "concussion" looks real.

If she stays out too long she’s going to hurt her chances in 2016.

It's a contemporary version of Teddy. Unfortunately, the short-attention span of Americans coupled with the dumbing down of society, the voting public has little interest or clue:

Maybe she had a stroke. Takes weeks or months to recover from small ones where there may be some facial palsy.

That a secretary of state can just dissapear is remarkable but then much of this regime is unnacountable.

so okay, maybe Hill did ask for help in Banghazi but ubama said no, planning to blame her and discredit her for the ultimate carnage and kill off her chances for the Presidency. He loves the double cross. However, Karma is a two way street

Benghazi is NOT going away. hillary is done. Over. Out. bill's lawyers have told her to lay low and shut up. Otherwise, if they put her under oath, she will have to take the Fifth.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

“Post surgery healing”

BINGO !

Probably at the Bougavilla Clinic on Tortola. This was/is a luxury plastic surgery hospital/hotel in the British Virgin Islands.

This is where Senator Kennedy went to have his gin blossumed nose worked on. My family and I were on vacation there about twelve years ago. We sat down at a bar at Sopers Hole Marina. The Senator from the Commonwealth of Mass was at the table next to us with his wife and another couple. He had suture strips on his nose from his recent surgery. I asked the waitress if he had given her a good tip when they left. She said it was fine. She had no idea who he was. I pointed out to her that the Thedore Kennedy of the American Express reciept was in fact the younger brother of JFK and was a current US Senator. He was not a good looking human being in person. He also could hardly walk.

That the media would play along with this charade is disheartening, to say the least.

Is there anything about the administration (other than unicorns and fairy farts) that might pique their interest?

Folks, the real question isn't being asked!

What hospital was Hillary in???

A concussion in almost every case is diagnosed by a scan or some kind of test in the hospital. Sometimes a stay up to 72 hours is needed for observation.

A woman of her celebrity could scarcely be admitted into hospital without notice, especially if she was in bed for X number of hours for observation post-test.

Why isn't the media asking these questions? Maybe it's because they know darn good and well she never was admitted to a hospital at all.

Let's keep pounding away on this forum with this question. Important media people DO read FR, not only conservative ones.

I think Benghazi has already done that. I don't expect the Republicans to make hay with that fiasco; but, if she has any competition on the Dem side, they will be all over having an ambassador and 3 others killed under her watch.

She’ll be cannonized when she surfaces from her hole for her bravery in facing her demons. No problems.

What makes you think that she had a stroke? Seems like, if she did, they would go ahead and announce it, have her “immediately” be out of office, etc., so that the GOP would just give up on her going on the record about Benghazi.

I am more inclined to think she’s just hiding out or had some kind of surgery.

It's the new concussion defense, good against any accusation.

Just think if the guys in Watergate would have had the foresight to claim they all got consussions and thus weren't able to testify.

OJ wouldn't have needed to answer any questions, his lawyer could have simply invoked the concussion defense and the issue would have been settled.

Just think...if you're pulled over and asked if you have had anything to drink or have any guns, just say you've had a concussion and can't remember a thing so if it's good enough for the Secretary of State it's good enough for you.

Disclaimer: I'm kidding of course.

When a situation has the potential for upsetting a dems future, the plan is to lay low and let the short term memory sheeple forget, while working out the details of how to blame the nutless GOP. There ain't anything incapacitatingly medical wrong with hitlery.

Uh-huh. Fainting doesn't usually cause concussions and one of her aides should have caught her to keep her from falling to the floor.

However, the "backfire" is that many people who suffer concussions end up with lasting brain trauma. Would we REALLY want someone who could have lasting brain trauma to have access to the nuclear button!??

Broken elbow in 2009!

Why does she fall so frequently?
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,527160,00.html

Doctor: Clinton Elbow Injury Complicated, Recovery Could Take Weeks
Published June 18, 2009
FoxNews.com

Pain, bruising, swelling and numbness are just a few of the symptoms Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is probably feeling after fracturing her right elbow during a fall Wednesday.

Clinton, who took a tumble Wednesday on her way to the White House, is facing surgery to repair her elbow and could be looking at several weeks to a few months of physical therapy depending on the extent of the injury.

Dr. Frank Alberta, an orthopedic surgeon at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey who has not treated Clinton, said there are many types of elbow fractures, but Clinton probably suffered one of the two most common kinds of fractures, depending on how she fell.

“The most common fracture you get from a standing-height fall will either be an olecranon fracture or a radial head fracture,” Alberta, who specializes in shoulder and elbow surgery, told FOXNews.com. “If she landed on her elbow and fell back on the point of her elbow, she most likely fractured her olecrenon, which is the bony point of your elbow. If she fell with her hand stretched out to catch the fall, then it may be a radial head fracture.”

In a statement released late Wednesday, chief of staff Cheryl Mills, said Clinton would undergo surgery in the coming week.

“We like to do surgery within a week depending on the type of fracture,” Alberta said. “We usually don’t do it immediately because we want the swelling to go down.”

In general, elbow surgery can last anywhere from 45 minutes to a couple of hours.

“There’ll be an incision depending on where the fracture is, and we’ll use anything from a plate and screws, all the way up to replacement of the joint to repair the injury,” Alberta said.

As far as recovery, Clinton is facing anywhere from six weeks to three months of physical therapy.

“We like to get patients moving sooner rather than later,” Alberta said. “We encourage movement right away because one of the biggest complications is stiffness, and we want patients to move early and get them going.”

In the meantime, you can plan on seeing Secretary of State Clinton with a splint and sling to complement her pant suit.

The elbow joint is made up of three bones including the humerus, which is the bone between the shoulder and the elbow; the radius, which is one of the forearm bones between and elbow and wrist; and the ulna. The ulna is the other forearm bone between the elbow and wrist.

Alberta said these injuries can be thorny to treat.

“These kinds of fractures can be complicated in terms of getting the motions right,” he said. “You have the flexion-extension movement, which is the hinge motion, and then you have the rotation of the forearm — and again these motions are provided by different bones and different joints.”

Her day is done—but don’t expect to have her exit the stage gracefully. She will be back in a new way—she will want revenge upon Obama. Wait and see. When his star starts to fall she will be working to discredit him and his motley crew.

The HILL did not have a stroke, she is a wine-O as big a lush as Kerry's wife. The fall was in fact staged in spite of her habit. She will now not remember anything about her role in the killing of our ambassador. The Hill has always been not able to remember!
