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.
In a letter to fellow-Republicans on the Hill today, Senator Jeff Sessions declares with admirable straightforwardness that the GOP establishment’s main argument for the Gang of Eight immigration bill — that “the great lesson of the 2012 election is that the GOP needs to push for immediate amnesty and a drastic surge in low-skill immigration” — is quite simply ”nonsense.” He is, of course, correct. (Snip) Today’s letter from GOP donors and fundraisers — i.e., the GOP establishment — to the House Republicans repeats the same dreary fallacies.
Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., will launch his bid to challenge incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., next week, Cotton’s office confirmed Wednesday. (Snip) Cotton has long been rumored to be weighing a bid for the Senate seat held by Pryor, a Democrat and the son of a former senator. A Republican operative confirmed earlier this year that two Democratic trackers had been following Cotton in case he decides to run. National Democrats wasted no time attacking Cotton on Wednesday, with one spokesperson for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee saying that Cotton’s decision showed “arrogance.”
Said Thomas Jefferson: “The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.” (Snip) For example, TV news programs often illustrate air pollution with a smoke stack emitting water vapor, implying it is pollution when it is anything but. Distortion and deception are accentuated by hyperbole. Television news and documentaries frequently report normal weather as “extreme weather,” implying it is abnormal and caused by human activity.
The question that incessantly tugs at my gut is," when will we say ´enough´?" I have the good fortune to interact with physicians across our nation. (Snip) Nearly everyone echoes the same sentiments. We are downtrodden by the yoke of our loss of social and economic standing combined with an overdose of unnecessary and crippling logistical constraints. Regarding the former, doctors have been subjected to an apparently intentional diminution of stature. Most obviously we are no longer "doctors"; instead, we are a mere segment of the blurred gamut called "healthcare practitioners".
It’s always a little galling (not to mention hilarious) for those of us on the right to reflect that the Democratic Party — the party of slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, and family-destroying social programs — the party of Detroit, New Orleans, Newark, and Baltimore — the party that facilitates a black abortion rate that would bring a smile to the face of Planned Parenthood’s genocidally racist founder — has somehow managed to sell itself to African Americans as the friend of black people! But it’s beginning to be equally galling (and equally comic) to reflect that the Democrats have
The death of Colonel George “Bud” Day, who received the Medal of Honor for his heroism as a prisoner of war in communist North Vietnam, is a moment to reflect on what goes into the making of an American hero. (Snip) It was during Korea that he decided to make the Air Force his career. He eventually volunteered to fly in Vietnam, where his detachment used as its call sign the name of Day’s favorite song, “Misty.” He was using the call sign “Misty 01” when, on August 26, 1967, he was shot down over North Vietnam and parachuted
Peter Robinson at Ricochet directs attention to a study by the Heritage Foundation of military enlistment to population ratios by region. It tells us that, generally speaking, folks from Red States are much more inclined to serve in the military than folks from Blue States. (Snip) The Heritage Foundation study also explodes the myth that military service disproportionately attracts men and women from disadvantaged backgrounds. To the contrary, the study shows that U.S. military service disproportionately attracts enlisted personnel and officers who do not come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
America is a poorer place today, a place whose reservoir of valor and determination has been depleted, because George “Bud” Day passed away over the weekend at the age of 88. He was a synecdoche for heroism, a military man’s military man. At Medal of Honor get-togethers, his fellow recipients, all of whom had accomplished legendary feats of bravery of their own, would pay special attention when Bud Day appeared. Bud was at war on behalf of America most of his life and never called a truce even as age and infirmity slowed him down.
Maybe, in looking at the example Detroit has set as the first major American city to file for bankruptcuy, the United States government will finally see more clearly what debt can do when politicians avoid reality. Detroit was once America’s queen city of manufacturing. That began going away decades ago, not because of bad calls by government, but because of changes in the national and international economies. The rich moved to surrounding suburbs, the poor stayed put and politicians had to decide what to do. Some of what they came up with was pretty bad.
There´s a movement among Capitol Hill Republicans to defund Obamacare. With the president´s hugely expensive national health care scheme set to take effect Jan. 1, many of the law´s opponents view this fall´s battles over spending and the debt as the last chance to stop it, specifically by cutting off funds for its implementation. But Republicans will not stop Obamacare. They won´t defund it. Their last chance to put an end to it was the 2012 election. They lost, and the chance is gone.
Naturally, Kate Middleton opted out of Britain’s “world class” National Health Service for the delivery of her baby. According to the Daily Express, a suite at the private Lindo Wing of London’s St. Mary’s hospital costs £6,265 per night — and this “excludes consultants’ fees.” Middleton’s total bill is expected to come to around £12,000 ($18,500). A poll conducted by ICM revealed that “37 per cent of the British public think that she should be having her firstborn on the National Health Service, believing it would send a powerful symbol if the new third in line to the throne
"I think you should check out the APEX program," my high school counselor Mrs. Workman suggested. APEX stood for Area Program Enrichment Exchange, and involved several L.A. area high schools, including Fairfax High. Intended for "advanced" students, the program allowed them to take courses not offered at their home school. In my case, I had exhausted all of the Spanish courses at Crenshaw High, the predominately black inner-city school I attended. But Fairfax, predominately Jewish, had higher-level courses and would accept me.
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
