Clinton’s brain: Fair concern about her health
New York Post ^ | May 16, 2014 | Rich Lowry

Posted on 05/18/2014 6:36:02 PM PDT by canuck_conservative

... A report in the New York Post’s Page Six that Karl Rove told a conference last week that Hillary Clinton might be brain-damaged after a 30-day hospital stay during her illness at the end of 2012 caused a volcanic eruption of denunciation aimed at the Republican strategist.

Rove was accused, among other things, of dealing the age card from the bottom of the deck.

Rove denies saying “brain damage,” and the Page Six report didn’t put quote marks around that phrase....

The clot, according to The Washington Post, “can cause permanent brain damage, coma or death if not detected and treated in time.”

News accounts say it was caught early, and Clinton is performing as ably as ever. But politicians have a long history of lying through their teeth about their health — see Woodrow Wilson, John F. Kennedy and Paul Tsongas, for example.

So Clinton will have to provide a full accounting of the 2012 incident and her overall health....

The Bill Clinton re-election campaign in 1996 feasted on contrasts between the new and old in its lopsided bout with the septuagenarian Bob Dole.

The age issue was so upfront that Time magazine ran a cover asking, “Is Dole Too Old for the Job?” and The New York Times ran a thumb-sucker wondering, “Is Age-Bashing Any Way to Beat Bob Dole?”....

Back to "Rove you magnificent bastard"? Consider:

Rove's exact words were -

“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.”

... and those three sentences have caused sheer panic in the Hillary Bunker - first Bill goes out to deny them, now it's Bloomberg coming to her defense.

Her team is obviously rattled. Well done, Karl.

Forget about it. Doctors have examined Hillary Clinton’s brain, and found nothing!

Wasn’t there a movie called “Clinton’s Brain”? If there wasn’t, there should have been.

How can she be brain damaged? Don’t you need a brain first?

The spectacle of clintonoids immediately going ballistic against Rove has suggested from the start that the 'rats are scared. It is well known that a brain injury such as a stroke frequently results in photosensitivity--exaggerated sensitivity to glare such that subdued lighting is the rule, and sun glasses out of doors or even under bright indoor lights would be necessary.

I believe there were a couple more fainting incidents. IIRC, all were attributed to the flu.

But, of course, Reagan's age and ability could be questioned to the Nth degree from our "unbiased" news media....

Except.....in 2016 the mainstream media will carry Hillary across the finish line as long as she is barely conscious.

How? Unprecedented savagery against the Republican opponent, fomenting riots by the entitlement community, blanketing TV & internet with old photos of a younger more vigorous Hillary, sending her horndog husband all over the U.S. wielding his satanic charm, all kinds of ways.

How long did it take the world to learn that beloved leader Hugo Chavez was really dead? When did he actually die? Prolonging the mystery? That’s easy.

How about a Disney audio-animatronics lifesize Hillary? They did Lincoln that way at the New York World’s Fair in 1964 - a half century ago.

She was seeing double after she fell and hit her head. Those glasses were designed to stop the double vision some way. You can tell the lens look different than regular lens.

The German rock group Kraftwerk once played 12 cities at the same time, one was the real group and the rest were all robots.

I imagine Hillary could do the same thing (and get rave reviews from a fawning Big Media, no doubt).

That picture of her making herself small is when a shoe was thrown in her direction, barely missing her. Anyone would likely look that that when something was thrown at him/her. She is a pox on this country but that picture does not deserve ridicule.

Don't forget the propensity for the GOP to nominate candidates that nobody outside of the RNC wants.

I am thinking the same thing. STROKE.
I still think she has very serious health issues.
Time will tell but I still do not think she is going to
run. In fact I very much doubt she will be alive in November 2016.
She looks terrible in current photos. I also notice most everything shown on the news channels is at least
2 years old.

“The MSM and the left would NEVER take a photo of a conservative out of context and hold them up to ridicule!”

Of course the left would do that. However, we are not the left. I saw the film where the woman threw the shoe at her and Clinton didn’t see it coming and neither would have anyone else standing there. When I saw that, they also showed Bush’s reaction when a shoe was thrown at him overseas and he reacted by trying to duck after the shoe whizzed by his head. Anyone is going to react in a sudden movement when the danger is realized.

Mrs. Bill Clinton should run for the US Presidency in 2014 for the following reasons:

* She is the best candidate that the Democrats have to offer;
* Blond jokes who again be popular;
* Obama has proven to Hillary that the lack of any management or economic experience is not necessary;
* Obama has shown to Hillary that incompetence is not a barrier for High Public Poll Ratings; and
* Mrs. Bill Clinton is still the most admired woman in America.

On election night Hillary will thank the RNC for nominating yet another clueless GOP establishment deer-in-the-headlights big-tent moron.

Who cares if by then she can’t think her way out of a paper bag? The marionette masters will be pulling her strings and then goodbye Americans’ liberty and hello bread & circuses plus midnight arrests.

“Clinton’s Brain” - I like the concept. Can we run a pilot for a new series along those lines? Hitchcock, Rod Serling, Hunter Thompson - all sadly unavailable now . . .who we gonna get to direct it? Tarantino? Rodriguez? Stephen King for the script? - too tame in my opinion.
