This is just breaking, so I thought Id serve it up for yall:
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, shes wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know whats up with that.
I know everyones going to be in a tizzy of righteous indignation over this, and Rove sounds rather blunter about it than Id be. But the fall was serious, her disappearance lengthy, and information about her condition not exactly readily available. There would be questions about it just as there were always questions about McCains health, right? I suppose those questions are seen as unseemly, but Im not sure theyre out of bounds.
She was out of sight for thirty days? Yep, rehab takes a while.
That picture of Hillary’s glasses on Drudge is pretty creepy.
Hildabeast and Porky Pig would make a helluva couple.
From observing a dozen-odd head injuries while serving in the Air Force.....there’s three basic levels. A ‘bump’ which results in you staying one night in the base hospital for observation. A ‘substantial concussion’, which results in you staying five to seven days. And a major brain injury episode, where you spend four weeks and someone usually discussing you getting a medical discharge with disability.
If she had walked out after five days, I don’t anyone would suggest anything. To have spent thirty days, there’s more to the health story and I think she’s got some permanent deal to handle.
Me personally? I think she’s trying to pick up some donor cash, and act as a person of influence on the 2016 race, rather than run herself. I suspect she’s got someone else in mind (not Maryland’s governor)...and trying to outcorner the Obama team’s choice of a personal pick from their players (likely Maryland’s governor).
Now that it’s openly being discussed, we need to investigate...
Wasn't it earlier considered a "distraction" by the GOPe? What has changed? Now Rove wants to campaign on it. Must be a lot of dirt ready to come out...
Not to mention having to hit the tarmac under sniper fire as soon as she landed in Iraq.
Have you ever seen those weird glasses before?
Betcha didn't see that coming...(/s)
It’s more likely it was a deliberate disappearance to avoid answering difficult questions until they were “last year.”
I have no idea whether Hillary Clinton has a brain injury or any other sickness or illness....but when a sixty-seven year old woman puts weight on in rapid fashion the way Ms. Clinton has, it is generally cause for concern. Now she may be as healthy as healthy can be...but she has developing “political” problems that I believe will cause her...down the road, to opt out of the 2016 POTUS run!!! We shall see....as time, and politics moves on!!!
The Obama Presidency has failed. It has been reduced to just plain old simple lie telling by just about everyone in the administration from Obama on down!!! The American people have lost faith in their government, and that faith will never return until Obama is out of office.
If the Dmocrat Party wants to save itself.....it has only one choice open to it....force Obama to resign or impeach him!!! That...of course will never happen....but Obama is destroying the Democart Party while trying his best to also destroy the USA economy and the country, itself!!!
...under sniper fire as soon as she landed in Iraq.
I believe that was in Bosnia; not Iraq.
She-Devil! drinks a lot, so she’s a stumble bum. She falls a hit her widdle head...call the Waa!mbulance.
It was not Romney, it was Edmund Muskie. And he did not just “shed some tears”. He broke down and stated weeping uncontrollably at a public event because he was criticized in a newspaper article.
I agree, it is a serious matter Unfortunately I think many Americans would vote for her out of sympathy and as a reward for having “overcome her adversity.” Such is the sate of American culture and politics.
Only once or twice. Generally, you get to this degree of vision correction...if you’ve got a permanent blurry vision issue. There’s some exercise process for you to ‘rebalance’ your vision when you get to these glasses, and they only serve for a period of time (like a year). My hunch is that she had some mini-stroke, and is using the trip-and-fell accident to explain things. The fact that she really cancelled out all public appearances for six months after the episode....leads me to think she’s had a pretty long extended recovery period. I doubt if she’s one-hundred percent, and a campaign episode (especially a full-year on the road)...will likely result in another stroke. She’s got someone in her mind....to help...and it won’t be the Obama choice for the Democrats.
