Skip to comments.Rove Comment Puts Spotlight on Hillary Clinton’s Health

Longtime Republican operative Karl Rove is putting front-and-center the issue of Hillary Clintons age and health, contending that a fall she took in 2012 gave rise to a brain injury that she needs to disclose more fully, according to a person who heard him discuss the matter at a closed-door event last week.

Why is it my first thought that Rove is setting the stage to excuse/protect Hillary from mistakes made on Bengazi?
Whatever his motivations, Rove is doing the right thing here. Most have been afraid to bring up the topic and Rove correctly starts the conversation. Her health is a legitimate issue for public discussion.
Which is why her brain is once again jello and she can’t recall (as in Benghazi).
Is this another rove gaffe or is he actually trying to help hillary?
I’ve been wondering the same.
Whatever his reason, he’s dangerous and needs to exit the stage.
It could be that Hillary very well end up NOT RUNNING because there will be pressure put on SOS John “you rang says Lurch” Kerry or one Gov. Mario “Little Mario” Cumeo of NY State to run instead.
An allegation this serious must be investigated. America needs to know whether Hillary is healthy or not.
So now, when asked a tough question, she can answer “I’m sorry, I don’t recall,” and the media will circle the wagons saying “This poor woman, who has suffered so much, shouldn’t be subjected to this kind of senseless grilling. “
Her mental health has always been an issue.
We underestimate the clinton machine at our own peril.
Her “poor” health can easily be spun as a reason to vote for her — you know....her last chance.
Also, she’s been vetted by the VRWC for years, so enough of the cruel questions.
Karl, there is statistical evidence that brain damage is a requirement for successful liberal politicians!
It could be she won’t run, but at the moment, it looks as if she definitely is.
I remember an acquaintance of hers casually mentioned something along the lines of hillary would love to have a grandbaby to carry along on her next campaign. Coincidence? For the baby’s sake, I’d like to believe that.
The party totally betrayed her the last time....when she was at her peak...and she knows they're not afraid to hit her again.
Wouldn't be surprised if we soon see her fainting at a function...let's call it "Functional Fainting".
some Freepers think Rove is an evil genius by doing this to help Hillary, others to hurt HIllary. Hmmm. I think he just messed up. He’s not that smart.
She's going to be 8-12 years older than any potential serious Republican competitor, and her age--she'll turn 69 just before Election Day--could result in a lot of uncomfortable questions asked about whether she could be a good President at that age.
Clintons don’t release medical records. Slick never did. And John Kerry still hasn’t released those 100 pages of his Navy service record he promised back in 2004, AFAIK.
I think it means Rove believes both she and Bush are running and he is helping out his next candidate Bush.
As the voiceover narrated---Hillary is seen walking gingerly down the steps of a plane, eyes glued to the steps, hanging on to the railing for dear life---exactly like an old person would do who fears she's not gonna make it down safely.
Now a clip of her waking UP the stairs would have made it even more revealing.
I still say Hillary will not run.
Got to remember that in this society, like it or not, when a man ages, he is considered “distingrished”. When it is a woman, and I kid you not, she is considered “old and not viable”.
That confirms it.
