The State Department slammed former United Nations envoy John Bolton over his suggestion that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton falsely claimed a concussion to avoid a potentially embarrassing appearance before Congress to explain the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Must be true! LOL!
“I ran outta gas! I had a flat tire! I didn’t have enough money for cab fare! My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners! An old friend came in from outta town! Someone stole my car! There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts!! It wasn’t my fault I swear to God!!!”
Hillary has an itch that her girlfriend needs to scratch!
Give her a break. She has PTSD from her combat experience in Bosnia. Have you ever come under sniper fire? /s
As they should. Since when is a hangover classified as a concussion?
I’m on the fence on this. I don’t necessarily believe Hillary’s cover story, but I also think (at the moment) that Bolton’s comment was a little over the top. I’ll wait for the other shoe to drop before I reach an opinion.
Since Bolton is a conservative, the DBM will pursue this (non)”story” until Bolton issues an “apology” and his head is lopped off for being a conservative.
In case you don’t recognize it, we have become the America that Ayn Rand described at the end of Atlas Shrugged. Corrupt, bloated government; union thugs; anti-business environment; phony climate concerns and an anti-American, muslim POTUS born in Kenya. All that’s missing is Galt’s Gulch.
I bet she has memory problems just like she did in Whitewater.
Her blue dress was stained. Oops, stike that. Wrong gal.
The response of America’s Secretary of State to this whole situation was childish in the extreme.
It didn’t help her cause when she came back and asserted that, “The dog ate my homework.”
Sorry, Hillary - when you play with the Big Boys, there are no excuses.
“Its unfortunate that in times like this people make wild speculation based on no information”
That’s right, we have no information, no doctor’s report, neuro exam, or hospital record. Maybe she could get an excuse from one of those University doctors in Madison, WI that were giving out medical excuses for teachers that skipped school to go to the Capitol and protest.
This is not implausible. After all, it is not Hillary who would likely be embarassed by truthful testimony. Why should she risk perjury and a long running death of a thousand cuts to shield captain zero?
So she couldn’t just say put off my portion of the hearing until I’m feeling better?
Would you believe any Clinton, or Kennedy or Pelosi?
C’mon guys....that would make her a complete fraud!....../s
Just as well her undies would burst into flame.. i.e. liar liar pants afire..
Why would they even respond. Never mind. WH “stuck on stupid”.
If she wants to be President, she has to learn that she just can’t call in sick.
