Karl Rove: Hillary Clinton may have brain damage
Page Six ^ | 12 May 2014 | Emily Smith

Posted on 05/12/2014 6:30:52 PM PDT by mandaladon

Karl Rove stunned a conference when he suggested Hillary Clinton might have brain damage.

Onstage with Robert Gibbs and CBS correspondent and “Spies Against Armageddon” co-author Dan Raviv, Rove said Republicans should keep the Benghazi issue alive.

He said if Clinton runs for president, voters must be told what happened when she suffered a fall in December 2012.

The official diagnosis was a blood clot. Rove told the conference near LA Thursday, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”

Michele Bachmann’s headaches of the past were certainly enough to disqualify her in the eyes of many.

As much as I cannot stand Hillary (as much as any other freeper), this was an underhanded and cheap shot (full disclosure: I detest Rove too).

This is a bit like "When did you stop beating your wife?" question, and is the kind of sleaze the Demonrats put out.

Karl--go away.

Hmmm.

After this little outburst, maybe Hillary will succeed in doing what conservatives have been unable to do for many years: Shut Karl Rove’s mouth.

Watch out, Karl!

Rove repeated the claim a number of times to the audience. Clinton’s rep said, “Please assure Dr. Rove she’s 100 percent.”

It's typical of Rove to focus on a personal injury rather than character.

Very bad political views.
Very bad character.

I know! Let’s engage in personal attacks based on health problems!! It’s a brilliant strategy!

No maybes about it.

IMHO, Hillary had a stroke. ANY stroke causes brain damage. Living with a stroke victim, I am MUCH more sensitive to the causes of stroke than before, as I daily live with the repercussions.

Very, very controlled public appearances. Rehearsed answers, and only friendly audiences.

And worshipful media. The Obamacult may turn to Hitlery before the lame duck is much lamer.

I don’t mind it. Either these people are enemies of the United States or they are not. And if going after Hillary means questioning her mental abilities then so be it.

As an aside If what we say is true and the ballot box has been invalidated by the Chicago Way then literally what difference does it make? What difference does it make if because of Rove making stupid comments we are unable to capture the 20% of the undecided electorate who decide the election. By how many percentage points do we have to win to overcome Democrat election fraud anyway? Is that what we’re reduced to?

Screw it. The only people who have a problem with this are those who believe the ballot box is still a valid avenue of change in this country. Just arm up, wait and watch with amusement at the machinations of the political class.

P.S.: Rove sucks anyway.

I think this is a valid campaign issue if she actually had some sort of traumatic brain injury and is significantly impaired then voters need to know.

Yes it sounds cruel.

I had a heart attack and got brain damage from a lack of oxygen. Maybe that’s why I voted for Romney.

Where was Rove when documented brain injured Joe Biden was bumbling and stumbling around? This guy is a rooty-toot phoney-baloney self serving a-hole. I don't care what he says about anything or anyone, anymore.

Technically, ever single person over 21 or so (in addition to a few under 21) reading this has “brain damage”. The issue is, how much, how much you had going for you when you were 21, and where it is.

Her theatrics in the hospital were to postpone her Benghazi testimony and to garner sympathy.

Don’t agree at all. She’s never been forthcoming about her injury or whatever, and even a critic of Hillary would admit her “what difference does it make” screed was out of the ordinary. I think Rove is right.

Actually, the HillaBeast might have quite an array of STDs thanks to both Bill and her own perverse behaviors.

She could have anything from tertiary syphlis to HAGS syndrome.

Yes...he, in fact, may be right. But without any documentation it is a sleazy thing to say, IMO. It’s a demo-lib tactic that we usually decry.

I don’t trust the Progressives in either party. Rove is probably floating a trial balloon to help her with criticisms on Benghazi. She has an injury, dontchaknow.

“I think this is a valid campaign issue if she actually had some sort of traumatic brain injury and is significantly impaired then voters need to know.”

Yeah, public knowledge of Joe Biden’s brain aneurisms and surgeries made a huge difference.

She’s a DEMOCRAT, it does not matter to the Party.

“Her theatrics in the hospital were to postpone her Benghazi testimony and to garner sympathy. “

Wouldn’t it be amusing if her faked injuries, intended to get her out of testimony, made her lose 2016?
