WASHINGTON — When Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton fractured her right elbow after slipping in a State Department garage in June 2009, she returned to work in just a few days. Her arm in a sling, she juggled speeches and a trip to India and Thailand with physical therapy, rebuilding a joint held together with wire and pins. (Snip) But after a fall at home in December that caused a concussion, and a subsequent diagnosis of a blood clot in her head, it has taken much longer for Mrs. Clinton to bounce back.
Unless, of course, this last "accident" didn´t happen at home, but rather in a plane headed for Tehran to negotiate some abysmal nuclear agreement with Ahmadinejad...just saying...it´s still out there.
Ohhh, poor baby. I certainly won´t waste any time worrying about her. I just hope she falls again and get some sense knocked into her. Like, DO NOT run for president. After obama I cannot imagine her sitting in the WH. But the American voter is so damn dumb I can see it happening.
The Left is just scared that she won´t be able to run for president because Hillary is all they got. They will run her if they have to strap her in a wheelchair. If she can fog a mirror she will be qualified.
What a load of crap. Works hard, yeah right, and look at the trail of chaos and destruction she leaves in her wake as she jets around the world at taxpayer expense betraying our allies and cozying up to the muslim savages in the Middle East.
This pantload is really the Secretary of Disgrace. She has the blood of our brave Seals who were murdered on that rooftop in Benghazi. She should be in prison.
#3 is right on. They don´t mention any accomplishments, just the number of countries she´s been to. To the left, that means she is working really hard, really. She and Obama use the perks of office to get out of town as much as possible....at our expense.
On the face of it it sounded like she contracted a stomach virus (usually called "Montezuma´s Revenge") which left her dehydrated - diarrhea can do that - and weak. She fell. The blow caused a subdural hematoma behind her ear.
#2, absolutely right. I was not the least surprised at her "problems." These are the end times. The time between what you sow and what you reap is way, way shorter (especially with regards to how one treats Israel.)
65 years old, history of falling, makes her eligible for a lttle rascal scooter. And I agree - travel is notnecessarily related to work, unless you are an airline employee. Hillary likes to travel - took a world tour with her brat, Chelsea, during Bill´s second term, and it cost 40 million dollars.
It´s a wonder she hasn´t fallen ill in those places she visited with the big handbag full of money she loves to hand out as if it was her own...they would make quick work of her excuses...she has far too many false stories to be believed by anyone who can put two and two together....shall we all laugh instead of cry while she is on the way to the hairdresser to make the grand entrnce with Mr. Sleazeball...
Perhaps there IS something Americans can agree on after all.
Hillary has done enough. She has suffered enough - and we have suffered enough. It is time for her to retire and concoct her memoirs. Give the lady a gold watch -a cigar, too, if she likes- thank her for etc. etc. etc. and let her go.
Pay her a generous stipend to go away and stay away, to be quiet and leave us alone. It would be worth millions. Who could begin to put a figure on such a thing? It would be a bargain at almost any price.
And it just might start a trend: Americans could buy out annoying politicians and public figures, i.e. pay them to go away and keep quiet.
I guess its a lot of work waddling around the world on those cankles...maybe we should invest in Gold and Ermine Litter so Herself can be carried around in a throne by some lowly civil servant slaves as is fitting Herself´s station in life... /s
If the media engenders enough sympathy for this lying filth, they can always convince the idiot electorate to replace her in their hearts with her genius daughter. You know, the one who won first place in the Webb Hubbell look-alike contest?
Hillary-haters and bashers always ask: What is the big deal about this woman? What has she ever actually done? Why does she matter? Why should we care?
They miss the point. The point is that she is Hillary Clinton. That is why she matters. That is what she has done. That is why we should care.
Hillary Clinton is Hillary Clinton in the same way, for example, that Kim Kardashian is Kim Kardashian. They are celebrities. They are who they are. Who they are is what they are and why they matter - or why they should matter.
It is quite useless and beside the point, therefore, to grumble and rummage through her record demanding proof or documentation that she has ever actually DONE anything significant or meritorious. What she has done is to be herself.
She is Hillary Clinton. That is enough. (It may be too much - but it is certainly enough.)
Yes, it takes longer for a rummy to "bounce back," particularly with this particular rummy is in hiding, shucking and jiving to keep from exposing herself and Bow-Boy´s responsibility for the rape and murder of the late ambassador.
A fall-down wide-eyed drunk politico and a birth certificate challenged socialist/communist in charge of dismantling the U.S. one trillion at a time.
Over weight and out of shape. Blood clot was likely the result of a botched face lift. Yet at nearly 70 the Dems expect her to be the next president..but of course after Obama the bar for that job is not too high.
I was astonished recently when one of my stepdaughters arrived home from public high school in Washington state with a red ribbon painted on her cheek. Sex education in the schools – which conservatives have tried to limit to abstinence-only – has now gone well beyond simple education. Today´s students are being coerced into promoting and acting out the politically correct views taught them. It is being done so sneakily, using the authoritative stamp of approval by the public schools, that even my conservatively raised children were cajoled into participating. There was no way to pull your child out of the
Friday, former Massachusetts chemist Annie Dookhan pleaded guilty to all 27 counts of falsifying nearly 40,000 criminal drug cases, effectively upending the Massachusetts criminal justice system. Dookhan admitted to filing false test results, mixing drug samples together, and lying under oath about her job qualifications. She claimed that she committed her crimes to boost her job performance and was sentenced on Friday to three to five years in prison, plus probation. Though many of the stories reporting Dookhan’s conviction focus on her alone, problems extend beyond one ambitious chemist. Dookhan’s “dry labbing” is just one part of a structure that incentivizes
You can always tell a Harvard man; he’s the one with a series of scarlet A’s on his report card. This week, Harvard’s Dean of Undergraduate Education Jay M. Harris admitted to the university newspaper, the Harvard Crimson, that the most common grade for Harvard students is an A. What’s the median grade? Would you believe A-minus? The reason Harvard is coming clean about its grade inflation is that they were prodded by professor Harvey C. Mansfield, who said in the Crimson that the inflated grades at the university are “indefensible … a failure on the part of this faculty
Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst announced a Texas-led three-week effort that he says reduced illegal immigration, smuggling, and human trafficking to a standstill in the Rio Grande River section of the U.S./Mexico border. The Lt. Governor spoke with me in an interview for Breitbart News; he stated: “In the Rio Grande Valley sector, nearly nothing moved in those three weeks. We shut it down. We had teams of Texas law enforcement in the brush, high altitude aircraft, gun boats, and more," he explained. “Our intel revealed that the Gulf cartel was growing frustrated with our three-week effort.” “The border issue is just
Last month, the New Yorker made rare sport of its fellow leftists, by featuring on its cover Kathleen Sebelius crossing her fingers, a pensive looking Barack Obama with Gordon Gekko’s giant mid-’80s brick of a cell phone, and a pocket protector-wearing young nerd (Jay Carney?) inserting into a White House computer equipped with a sclerotic CRT monitor, yet another piece of technology from the early pioneering days of personal computers, a floppy disk. As Malcolm Muggeridge noted a half century ago, there is no way for any satirist to improve upon real life for its pure absurdity. Yesterday, the New York
The FT’s former correspondent at the European Parliament used to ask me the same question at every press conference. “So does this mean you voted the same way as Jean-Marie Le Pen?” It’s amazing how many people want to judge a proposal, not by its merits, but by its incidental supporters. We need only state their implication openly – that you should drop an otherwise sensible idea because someone you don’t like agrees with you – to see how absurd it is. Yet people carry on doing it. It’s the phenomenon that lies behind Godwin’s Law, the observation that all Internet discussions,
WASHINGTON — As the Obama administration continues the aggressive public defense of the Affordable Care Act it began this week, the president will get some help from his former chief congressional lobbyist, Phil Schiliro, who is returning temporarily to the White House almost exactly two years after he left. Mr. Schiliro’s job, which is expected to last a few months, is to help protect the health care law from legislative attacks by repeal-minded Republicans in Congress, and to quiet dissent from politically vulnerable Democrats seeking to distance themselves from the law and the president ahead of the midterm congressional elections.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
