We’re told she collapsed and hit her head and got a concussion, and that’s why she can’t testify about Benghazi this week. And we’re supposed to just take her word for it.
Investor’s Business Daily editorializes:
Outside the frothy bubble of U.S. political concerns lie only the hard realities of the real world. That’s why hard questions should be asked and real answers demanded of U.S. secretaries of state and those who would be them.
That’s not the case with either Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who puts up excuse after excuse to avoid testifying on the U.S.’ biggest foreign policy failure in Libya, while her would-be successor, John Kerry, wins plaudits from the media despite a long record of anti-Americanism and bad foreign policy calls.
Clinton claims she can’t testify for Congress on Thursday because she fell down over the weekend and got a concussion. Maybe so, but thus far no one’s seen a medical report. What’s more, it’s the second time Clinton has put off crucial congressional testimony about the murder of a U.S. ambassador and three other U.S. officials by Islamist terrorists in Benghazi, Libya, last Sept. 11. The previous time, she had more pressing business, tasting wine in Australia and checking up on East Timor.
It looks like avoidance of responsibility to preserve her own political viability.
It certainly does. 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.
What’s that you say? You don’t think that’s fair? All the paranoid wingnuts should shut up? Oh, I’m sure you’d say the same thing if this had happened between 2001-2009, and Colin Powell or Condoleeza Rice kept putting off testifying about it. You wouldn’t demand a doctor’s note then, right?
P.S. If you demanded Romney’s tax returns but you think it’s paranoid to ask for Hillary Clinton’s medical report, #YouMightBeALiberal.
P.P.S. Glenn Rynolds: “Maybe she can get one of those Wisconsin doctors to write her a fake note.” Remember that?
P.P.P.S. Apparently we’re not supposed to ask. And we’re supposed to pretend the left wouldn’t be asking the same thing if all this had happened when the president was a Republican.
In about five years, after the election, it’ll show up on her office desk.
Stuffed under the Rose Law firm billing records. :)
Damn! you beat me to it. I was gonna suggest looking under the still-missing Rose Law Firm billing records.
In her imagination.
well she was spaded after chelsea and she has no herpes so she wasn’t having sex with bill.
Arkancussion... It’s a new phenomenon...
Symptoms include: Aversions to Honesty, Congressional Testimony, Arkansas Beauty Queens, Government Employed Travel Agents, Former Dead Boyfriends, Ft Marcy Park picnics & Paternity tests for offspring.
*Please put down the highball glass & call your doctor immediately if you have unexplained & undiagnosed head injuries + chronic fears of the VRWC...
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
If she was seen by a doctor, I believe that would have been sufficient. However, the doctor could have just as easily given her a LEGAL EXCUSE to not have to appear before Congress.
This woman is so deceptive, I doubt we'll ever know for sure.
Filed under R as in “recto-cranial inversion”
They are in a locked box along with obomba’s birth certificate.
Now she has an excuse to say, “I don’t remember...”
*call James Carville if you have a bimbo eruption lasting longer than 4 hours.
It is not believable that the Secretary of State who falls and has a brain injury (bruised brain) that she would not have a CT scan. That is the least a prudent doctor would have done....along with a complete neurological examination, blood tests, and X-rays to rule out a depression fracture or linear fracture...if this happened at all. I have not heard of any such tests having been done. The senequinon of an epidural bleed is a lucid interval...a period of time from the time of injury until the manifestations of neuological injury. This may develope 6 hours or 6 days after such a bleed. Yet, no CT Scan. It does not add up to the truth.
A Clinton not releasing medical records? Where have I heard THIS before???
As Yogi Berra would say “It’s Deja Vu all over again!”
And a concussion is not treated by "bed rest".
I expect crapola from the Clintons. It's getting really hard to put up with the absolute incompetence of the press. They should be asking questions.
What an embarrassing display.
Wheres Hillary Clintons medical report?
Were told she collapsed and hit her head and got a concussion, and thats why she cant testify about Benghazi this week. And were supposed to just take her word for it.
