I hope this covers Secretary of State Concussions. A serious work hazard that has afflicted a recent SOS.

President Obama Hosting Concussions Summit At White House

____________________________________________

Will he be demonstrating the effects of having a concussion? Will there be volunteeers to .... never mind.

I guess they could always drag Joe Biden out.

“See this brain damage? It could happen to you”.

Or maybe Hillary. She had a concussion. Was out for Six Months. But despite that - “Vote for Hillary - She Doesn’t Have Brain Damage!”

I wonder if anyone has done a mini/max analysis of Obama’s various conferences?

What is the maximum time an issue has held his focus?
What is the minimum time an issue has held his focus?

It would be an interesting analysis of both his direction and lack of direction.

I guess he learned about this serious nation threatening problem on Wretched Madcow's show. It's where he gets ALL his 411 and explains why he still thinks he's doing a great job. It's where he found out about the VA thing.

No, I don't think it's a waste of time. Severe concussions can cause permanent brain damage.

That would explain this feckless administration -- severe concussions from repeatedly banging their head against the wall.

A doctor should declare them all permanently disabled, and remove them from office.

Should be an epidemic of concussions with all the face-palms he’s causing.

I think it’s well and good to look into dangers that may exist in sports.

But, and this is a big but, I question if looking into the issue requires the attention of the president himself. Is this really a pressing issue of national security, or otherwise in the purview of the federal government?

Because there’s nothing more important going on that needs pResidential attention. At least Obama seems to now understand his intellectual limitations.

Only Obama would hold a whitehouse event to highlight the risks of being beaten in the head, either repeatedly or in one massive blow, which could cause lifelong brain injury.

I think the science on that is pretty settled as they say. After all, hasn't he ever heard of "punch drunk"?

It is a pressing issue of deflection.... from less important matters such as Benghazi, F&F, the economy, and [insert nachum list here]

It’s not like there is anything more important than forcing bad food on schoolkids, asking those same kids to monitor their parents thoughts for unapproved ideas and concussions.

This will NOT redeem his tarnished image.
It makes the VA abuse scandal even worse...vets will see him catering to over-paid sports players while our military vets are treated poorly.
Game players vs those who REALLY put their life on the line.
Every day he puts a stick in the eye of America.

I get a concussion every time this asshat goes on tv, for yet another campaign me me me speech.

The world is literally burning to the ground, our country is ripping apart at the seems, and all this fool can do is host parties, fundraisers and irrelevant summits that do nothing, but promote himself and his big government socialist minded agenda.

I’m SO sick of him. God please make it stop.

They really should have had Hillary address the concussions summit, though.

Hillary should really attend. She needs help. Poor Hillary is having blackouts from that nasty fall.

<><> She can't remember how long it took her to recuperate--Bill said 6 months--her all-girl Sate Dept said a week.

<><> She can't remember a thing about Benghazi.

<><> Doesn't know where Obama was when they gathered in the Situation Room.

<><> Doesn't remember a thing about her State Dept giving Boko Haram a pass.

<><> She's in the dark about the $6 billion missing from the State Dept.

<><> She can't remember the Clinton Foundation's Muslim terrorist who was planning jihad while employed by her and Bill.

<><> She can't remember the NY Times reporting that the Clinton Foundations were rife w/ Clinton corruption, greed, cronyism, and shady deals.

<><> She can't remember that the Sultan of Brunei contributed to the Clinton Foundation.

<><> She can't remember the Clinton Global Initiative Foundation gave a rare grant to Harry Reid's grand-daughter (for some unknown global purpose).

<><> Heck, She cant even remember the Bank of Libya's solid gold bars when she and Obama staged a military incursion there.

===========================================

========================================

It's a dam shame.

Hillary is rarely seen standing any more.

Her left eye is the crazy eye, can't focus.....indicating brain damage.

CAN SHE REMEMBER ANY OF THIS? Did she suffered a brain aneurysm. Did she become comatose? How many times has she blacked out? Did she go to any neurological centers? Was she in rehab?

Even with months of rehabilitation, victims of aneurisms can't hold a thought for more than 20 seconds, according to experts in the field.
