Conservatives not buying Clinton concussion

By PATRICK GAVIN | 12/18/12 4:23 PM EST

The official story out of the State Department is that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton recently fainted and suffered a concussion and is working from home. As a result, she is not expected to testify before Congress this week on the subject of the attack in Benghazi.

Message received, right? Not everyone is so convinced.

The New York Post called it “one of the most transparent dodges in the history of diplomacy.”

The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher won’t believe it until he sees some proof. “If she has a concussion, let’s see the medical report. Let’s see some proof that she’s not just stonewalling. If it’s true, then we can all wish her a speedy recovery. But it’s ridiculous to expect us to take her word for it.”

Ditto Republican strategist Alice Stewart, who said on Fox News, “I certainly hope Hillary Clinton has a good note from her doctor.”

Also on Fox News, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton said: “You know, every foreign service officer in every foreign ministry in the world knows the phrase I am about to use. When you don’t want to go to a meeting or conference, or an event, you have a ‘diplomatic illness.’ And this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band.”

2. Hillary is in the news for 10 minutes, and

the weasels on the right come out of their dens with teeth bared.

These dirtbags are sooo predictable.

5. She didn't faint at home or out of sight somewhere, did she?

Other people there witnessed it, andwere afraid something worse was wrong.

The conservative's reason for saying she's faking is because she was to appear before some congressional hearing and they think she's faking in illness sto get out of testifying. Sorry guys,m that's just Hillary. She may not be thrilled about testifying, but I've never seen Hillary hidwe or pull away from anything!

10. She did faint at home, but DOCTORS diagnosed a concussion

I think they need to think of the fact that she will eventually speak of Benghazi anyway and they will be the first if she runs in 2016 to suddenly speak of past health issues - hoping people think it would still impact her ability to be President. (even though not true.)

That is all.

9. So where's Bolton's medical certification that proves he is sane?

Until I see that, I am going to continue assuming he is not.

11. I'm sure Hillary will give the rabid jackals

a Dr's excuse.

Get Well, Hillary.. Concussions are nothing to mess with. Any hitting of the head is dangerous.

14. So by this logic Bush didn't choke on a cracker, he was shit faced and passed out...

No one pressed him over what happened and why he suddenly had this big ass bruise on his face. No, that would be unAmerican. And who the fuck are they to ask for medical records?

17. Holy shizz! This is a much bigger story than when CIA director William Casey suddenly and

permanently lost his ability to talk, just four hours before he was supposed to testify before Congress about his knowledge of the Reagan administration selling missiles to the Iranians and smuggling cocaine and using their profits to fund an illegal terrorist war against peasants in Nicaragua! And then he died, like any other normal person, and some people acted like it was suspicious

But that was nothin compared to this Benghazi cover-up, which just keeps getting bigger and bigger. You know what really going on? Hillary is actually spending a few days embedding Obama's Kenyan birth certificate in a block of concrete that NASA is planning to blast into deep space so nobody will ever find it again! And she's already adding the names of everybody who knows about it to the death panel lists!

18. Hillary Clinton is a top presidential contender for 2016. All of the conservatives who pretended to

love the Clintons during the 2008 primaries are now showing their true colors. A tainted Hillary can't run in 2016. These assholes are so transparent.

19. One and all of them can kiss my butt!

She's never shied away from being drilled by those bastards before, so why would she start now?

Anyone who has seen video and/or a picture of Hillary over the last few months can see the fatigue that has been showing in her face. She's been working hard under intense pressure and she's not as young as she used to be.

I hope she takes extra careful precautions because ANY head injury can many times be worse than first diagnosed. Better safe than sorry because I, for one, do not want to lose her!When she's healthy again and ready to testify, those jerks will still be there.

They can wait.

20. Bolton would know.

He successfully evaded testifying before Congress at least a dozen times, because had he repeated any of his public statements on, say just for example, Iran, under oath, he would have been open to charges of lying to Congress.

Furthermore, this Congress is effectively out of session already and the Benghazi hearing will not produce an actionable result no matter what is disclosed.

Bolton would have blown it off. That's why he's the guy to ask about it.

21. Bolton

Why is this guy still around making an ass out of himself? This guy was a blowhard during the W years that was wrong on everything he talked about. If Romney had won, Bolton the nut job would be his top foreign adviser.
