Skip to comments.Rove Comment Puts Spotlight on Hillary Clinton’s Health
Posted on 05/14/2014 3:50:57 AM PDT by Biggirl
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.
Hillary will run.
She has to because for the first time in 22 years, a Clinton has not been in a position of very high power and without one of them in a powerful position, the inside ,outside game they have exploited to make hundreds of millions of dollars falls apart.
Right now they are playing the game to make sure the people they shake down have to worry that they will be back in the White House in 2016 and the there are a lot of people who have a vested interest in that happening.
From a health standpoint, Clinton either has a serious health problem that could keep her out of office, or she spent cynically spent a month in hiding in the hospital to try to avoid testifying about Benghazi and build sympathy for herself as a victim . She probably also used the time in the hospital to have cosmetic procedures done to make her look younger
If the truth comes out on either , she is toast.
Still I doubt she will run.
Maybe, but whatever can be done to sow doubts about her abilities can only help.
Rove could have made the point in a more artful manner so the focus would not have been on him.
I thought Rove and Hillary were the same person? Learn something new everyday
I doubt she even can run, but I'm afraid she can still be carried over the line by her sycophants in the media! How many people knew about Roosevelt's disability?
Correct. Rove IS doing the right thing here. But because FReepers are conditioned to hate Rove; we hate anything he says.
I said it before, I’ll say it again: Sarah Palin could have said this exact same thing, and FReepers would be having orgasms over it.
Your wish is my command.
Its not injury or ill health. It’s a genetic disorder.
It’s liberalism. You ever wonder why liberalism never
makes any sense at all. No matter how you look at it, it
just doesn’t make any sense. Well that’s a sign you are
normal. However if you have a throwback of recessive genetics
that causes Liberal Disorder Syndrome or LDS then it all
makes sense. But only to a sick LDS mind.
She’s a little unsteady on her feet, eh?
That needs to go viral.
Its about a dozen or more photos of - well Drunk Hillary.
Stuff like this. And more.
The point is - Hillary is a drunk. The whores in the media know this, yet they don't report it. Does Hillary have brain damage? Who knows. But the other reason she may not run may actually lie in the bottom of a bottle.
For once Tokyo is doing us all a favor by maybe giving Hill the little extra push she needs to decide not to run.
Crossing those timelines must be murder.
She musta found out that alcohol is a soporific---puts the drinker soundly to sleep.
Hillary is trying to appear stylish. Try as she might, it just not working for her. And look at Chelsea. I’ve never seen her look more like Webb Hubble.
I think this is the gif I was looking for.
Or maybe this one!
I agree about the way society looks at it, but I also think if a woman ages well and is pleasant and normal, she stands a chance.
I just hope and pray she’s stopped.
