Is Hillary too sick to run?

For years now, presidential candidates have been placed under a proverbial microscope, ostensibly to assure the American people that their candidate, if elected, is healthy enough to serve as President of the United States.  I remember the left press (an oxymoron) dithering over a Romney hangnail, and then of course Vice Presidential candidate Thomas Eagleton was booted as McGovern’s running mate when disclosed that a psychiatrist not associated with Dr. Phil had treated him.  But this kind of scrutiny may be changing now…

According to Alex Pappas at the Daily Caller, whispers persist that Hillary Rodham Clinton may not be medically capable of becoming our next president.  He says there are rumors about everything from bed wetting to brain tumor, with most murmuring over her alleged brain concussion.  You remember that crisis, right?  The concussion she had in order to avoid giving testimony in the Benghazi affair before the House of Representatives according to their time frame, rather than hers?

I have a few thoughts about this.  First of all, if Hillary has a brain tumor, she’s a shoe-in for the Democratic nomination.  But I don’t believe that idea for one second.  I think this is all hooey created by the Clinton machine to elicit an outpouring of sympathy among voters who shouldn’t.  Does anyone remember the crocodile tears she shed for television cameras during the New Hampshire contest?  Poor thing; I always wondered if she shed as many tears for her dear friend Vince Foster, or her other dear friend, Chris Stevens. 


So what rumors have you heard about Hillary’s health?


Always On Watch said...

Not a rumor, but I saw this myself....Hillary was wearing a prism on one of the lenses of her eyeglasses when she testified about Benghazi. I noticed the prism because Mr. AOW had such a prism for about 2 years following his stroke -- the issue was damage to an eye-controlling nerve in the brain.

About prism correction:

In eyeglasses, prisms are used primarily for double vision, positional correction, or convergence correction.

There are numerous causes for the above problems.

Reportedly, Hillary suffered a concussion when she fell, and a blood clot was found during a scan.

Wikipedia states:

...In December 2012, Clinton was hospitalized for a few days for treatment of a blood clot in her right transverse venous sinus, a vein within the head that allows blood to drain from the brain. Her doctors had discovered the clot during a follow-up examination for a concussion she had sustained when she had fainted and fallen nearly three weeks earlier...

As long as I'm here, I might as well make another personal observation....Hillary's bloat -- very apparent during her Benghazi testimony -- could have been the result of steroids prescribed for brain swelling.

So, I have to wonder if Hillary has "a brain thing" going on.

Always On Watch said...

Caveat: My comment above should not be construed as making health-related excuses for Hillary Clinton.

Like most matters related to the Clintons, we won't learn the truth.

DaBlade said...

If you've ever tripped and fallen while dodging imaginary Bosnian gunfire - hitting your head on your club-like cankle which resulted in a subdural hematoma of the transverse sinus venous thrombosis, you know how painful that can be.

But seriously for a second, I certainly hope her health is fine. But the longer Hillary's health is discussed, the less is spent on the fact she has a dismal record and absolutely negative qualifications (which I suppose makes her a perfect democrat)

Ed Bonderenka said...

Whatever her health, I'm sure she'll get the finest treatment available under Obamacare (nee Hillarycare).
Other than that, I concur with DaBlade.
And lastly, I see these pictures of her where she looks older and some are doctored to show how she'll look in 2018 or 2020, and some purport to show her sans makeup (like those pictures of Cameron Diaz, et al, without the studio touchups), and I get confused on which is which.

Constitutional Insurgent said...

AOW - Thanks for this context. I actually have a bet at work....I have suspected for some time now that she would not run.

Waylon said...

It wouldn't be the first time an American President sat in the presidential chair following some serious brain damage. Woodrow Wilson let the missus handle things for him in his incapacitated state.

Hillary would be an agent of the "Capstone Committee", so nothing would change.

sue hanes said...

Z - I haven't heard anything about Hillary's health - good or bad. I hope she is in good shape - I wish her well.

Sam Huntington said...

I am unable to generate much compassion for H. Clinton. I don’t wish her ill, of course, but neither do I care what happens to her. Maybe it is as CI says—she won’t run. But there is a lot of money being collected for her campaign. So the question is, if Hillary doesn’t run, who will? If Obama isn’t left enough for the left-wingers, then who is out there that will provide that boost of much-needed fascism? Hermann Reid? Adolf Wasserman-Schultz? Vladimira Pelosi?

Radical Redneck said...

Is Hillary too sick to run?

Does a bear crap in the Woods?

Ed Bonderenka said...

Like Waylon said. And a compliant press will cover it up again, like Wilson and FDR.

Joe said...

Following Waylon's comment, I guess Hillary will let Bill run things for her, if elected.

T Krabby said...

There were some serious rumors that she had been fighting a venereal disease since her last time with Bubba...back around '92 they say?

Given to Bubba by Jennifer Flowers, perhaps.

Why not? I mean the man was pretty much a serial philanderer yes?

Impertinent said...

If this doesn't motivate you to get your butts out to vote...than nothing will. What follows is the "liberal" agenda and goals.

Among Democrats who call themselves liberal:


Think most people can get ahead if they work hard


Think reducing the budget deficit is a top national priority


Say they have old-fashioned values about family and marriage

62% ( seizing wealth? )

Think the government can do a lot to reduce poverty

54% We've already been invaded without firing a shot or defending our borders!

Think it’s acceptable if another country is as powerful as the United States

54% scarier than Clinton..the Faux Pocahontas?

Have a favorable view of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)

JonBerg said...

If Honey Boo Boo was old enough, I wonder if DemocRATS would elect her? Their love of human TRASH is insatiable as our Nation crumbles!

JonBerg said...

"Hillary Rodham Clinton........bed wetting"

Sounds like a Liberal's idea of a w*t d***m to me!

From GeeeZ aT WORK:

Mustang, when you say "sick" do you mean physically or mentally? :-) I think she's got 'change America forever to a liberal Mao-jacket state so EVERYBODY's HAPPY' illness and, for that, I'd say that's waaaay too sick to run.

Man I WISH I had my new computer at home ...should arrive Wednesday and then the hardware guy will play with it, then my computer gal will deliver to me by HOPEFULLY, Friday, and have me up and running.... I'd LOVE SO MUCh to know what you all think of Obama's rattling Russia's cage with threats we could NEVER EVER follow thru on. Man, the whole world has to be giggling at us. It's clear nobody's scared of us anymore..
And, in a lefty dream, that's the goal, right? Nobody's scared so we're all grabbing hands and posing with big smiles and dancing around Stonehenge for the rest of our days? Nobody's scared means everybody loves everybody?
Oh, but WAIT...Al Qayda's not dancing with us and neither is Putin! I thought they're supposed to all be nice if we are? HEH HEH

Liberalmann said...

It's going to be so entertaining to see wingnuts squirm even more than what they have already presented to defeat Hillary. Is she too sick? Doubtful, but who cares? If it's not Hillary, it will be Biden and the right has no legitimate contender. They will split themselves with lunatics again. Besides, Reagan was all but loco in his second term.

Constitutional Insurgent said...

"I'd LOVE SO MUCh to know what you all think of Obama's rattling Russia's cage with threats we could NEVER EVER follow thru on."

Um...we've called on Russia to de-escalate the situation. The Administration and State have issued the standard diplomatic boilerplate. I'm not sure what you mean by "rattling the cage"....of corse in the realm of political opposition, I rather think any course of action would be criticized as the wrong one.

I would note however, that Russia is employing a starkly historical seen in the Sudaten portion of Czechoslovakia, in October 1938.

Impertinent said...


Russia hasn't changed...not with Putin at the helm. He is what Russia always it is what he wants it to be. What do we expect from an 'old' KGB officer anyway?

I'm sure Putin doesn't give a damn what Obama thinks or considers what he proposes seriously. With his foreign policy failures, would you?

Constitutional Insurgent said...

Imp - Well, from everything I've read, Obama hasn't proposed anything. There's been UNSC talk of mediators and monitors....but little else of any substance.

As far as Obama's foreign policy failures, I have less to criticize him on than you might. Beyond the Libya bombing and the consulate attack in Benghazi, there's not much I would consider a failure, per se.

But you're right, Putin envisions a reborn Russian Empire of sorts...and he cares little for what the US thinks about it.

Egypt? Iran? And all his outreach to the muslim world hasn't worked in our favor, or has it? Then how?

Iraq? Afghanistan? Half the EU and Brazil are PO'd at us too.

Duckys here said...

Well Imp, buck up, because it's going to get worse for you.

Pay attention to gay marriage and how quickly the situation is changing? Why?
Because the old smoke screen of the so called culture wars is lifting. You still have immigrants to kick around but that's dissipating. It's over.

... and with that out of the way a progressive movement is going to continue to build. Forget about Clinton. Kick her and Robert Rubin to the freaking curb.
I'm not sure who the Dems will run in 2016. I imagine it will be another DLC pimp but the terrain is changing.

Watch the culture wars. You keep getting your ass kicked and it's over. And you'll thank the left when it's over and this Libertarian fever dream breaks.

I'm telling you, it's over. Just going to take a little more time. I haven't felt this optimistic in decades.

Constitutional Insurgent said...

Imp - I have held that our AFG occupation has been the wrong strategy since 2002/ I can blame him, but he was continuing the strategy of his predecessor. Iraq was a monumental distraction from the initiation.

Iran is a continuation of the previous Administrations strategy. Egypt is not in the portfolio for blaming the US. And Bush's Muslim outreach didn't yield benefits either.

I will certainly say that he brought no new ideas to US policy since 2008....and that can certainly be regarded as failure.

Constitutional Insurgent said...

Ducky - "And you'll thank the left when it's over and this Libertarian fever dream breaks."

You're somehow lumping in Libertarians with your culture war, when we side with you on marriage, and most Libertarians agree with you on immigration [I'm generally not one of them on this issue].

You may or may not have realized this, but the tea party and the Libertarian Party are miles apart.

If I understand you correctly..."previous administration" translates's still all 43's Fault?

Obama announces we are cutting the military to pre World War Two levels and within 48 hours Putin's troops are in the Ukraine. Connecting the dots anyone?


I'm afraid to ask just what you see in our future through your crystal ball?

Constitutional Insurgent said...

Imp - How do you translate what I aid into "all W's fault"? Obama shares blame equally in the matters of Afghanistan and Iraq. He brought nothing new to the table, and the prevailing strategies have been borne out to be failures.

As for the military cuts, let's dispense with some of the framing. With the combat power in technology and enables, force size isn't as important as force power. The manpower levels of "pre-WWII" aren't as relevant as where an how we trim back our force, which absolutely must occur.

Impertinent said...


Maybe because of this?

" I have held that our AFG occupation has been the wrong strategy since 2002/ I can blame him, but he was continuing the strategy of his predecessor"

"Iran is a continuation of the previous Administrations strategy. Egypt is not in the portfolio for blaming the US. And Bush's Muslim outreach didn't yield benefits either.

Obama can't be excused because of previous administrations's his basketball court now...his alone.

Impertinent said...


Putin has received authorization from the Russian Parliament to use military force in the Ukraine.

Putin should brace himself for a stern reprimand from Obama.

Maybe a "red" line for the old Reds?

Constitutional Insurgent said...

Imp, I believe in spreading blame appropriately. Nothing I posted placed all the blame on Bush as you asserted.

But fair enough, as long as you remember this when the GOP wins the White House again.

Impertinent said...


1) I don't believe they will in 2016.

2) So then it means that the new non GOP POTUS will have to blame the previous administration. That's fair. The bets on..LOL

Which begs the question...just what are the dems going to run on in '16?

Since the previous administration is always accused of screwing up everything and the new guy will fix all...and always has a 'better"
plan to fix what ails the country.

Or will they distance themselves from everything and just promise to give away the store? Then of course...they'll win.

"Ask not what you can do for your country....ask what your country can give to you".

Great slogan for 2016.

Constitutional Insurgent said...

Imp -

1- I tend to agree, though I couldn't pick a front runner for either party right now. But I can almost guarantee that I will not support either one.

2- That never happens. That trend will continue.

"Ask not what you can do for your country....ask what your country can give to you".

Yep. Shorter: Got Entitlements?

Duckys here said...

What do I see, Imp.

Well, an end to the assault on the social welfare state,single payer health insurance, financial regulations, an end to demonizing the poor and a more equitable distribution of wealth.
To some that will appear to be the Bolsheviks at the gate but you really need not fear it.

Constitutional Insurgent said...

"A more equitable distribution of wealth".

Meaning of course, theft from the earning class.....and GIVEN to the unearning class.

Yep, nothing to fear there.........

Impertinent said...


Yes of course...that's all our wish...lets be taxed at 95% as that ought to finally win the 60 year old war on "poverty".

And I should not fear the barbarians at the gate? O God.

Kid said...

ODDLY? enough, news channels were talking about the beast this morning, and their presentations were Chock Full of hilrod images from 30 to 50 years ago. I assume they'll continue with this gross propaganda-misrepresentation of The Beast.

Well Here is what the Pathological Liar really looks like

pic1- old hilly

Older than dirt and twice as dirty

Today, after 372 face lifts

Is the fact that she is uglier than satan an issue? Naw, Libtards love them as ugly as possible. The issue is this bitch has never told the truth from the money she knew what planet she landed on.

Not to mention being directly responsible(Most Likely) to Negligently/Icompetently responsible(at the very least) in the deaths of an American Ambassador, 3 other Americans(who were told to stand down but if they did, 30 More Americans would be dead).

And people want to put this level 1 POS in the white house? Not surprising really, but maximum vomit inducing.

Duckys here said...

No, CI, meaning the sanity to realize that a large wealth disparity, despite what is thought in the Libertarian sandbox, is detrimental to a society and that not all wealth is justly earned.

Kid said...

DaBlade. health is fine? Really? Personally, I hope she drops dead tomorrow, just as much as I hope satan is transferred to some other universe.

Dead. Yes. D E A D.

Impertinent said...


Then who would be tasked with defining..."justly earned"?

SEIU? UAW? AFL / CIO? NEA? IRS? NSA? Executive "discretion"? Congress?

Kid said...

T Krabby, bubba clinton - Long after Monica, the gentleman who sits to my right at my workplace... His wife has a woman friend who expressed her fervant desire to give bubba a BJ when he was in Cincinanti several years ago, and she would be attending the same event as bubba.

C'mon folks, Monica wasn't # 2, she was Number 1402, at least. And many women today yearn to be of service to the communist bubba.

Kid said...

Folks, Folks, FOLKS !


And not looking for work. Of the Eligible to Work Population, that equates to a 58% Unemployment Rate.


The maximum unemployment rate during the Real Great Depression as 25%.

So, not we have 91 million, being paid by those of the 118 million(from the article) who actually pay taxes(exclude federal workers who owe the IRS 2 Billion...) and we can see that numbers and other situations being reported by the democrat propaganda machine are so absurd that if you turn on the boob tube and actually listen to them, you may as well, just hit yourself in the head with a hammer, dream about having sex with wolfey blitzkreig during one of his romper room sessions and imagine you live on Jupiter or one of its moons for all that you are connected to reality.
la deee da dee daa deee da.

Have a great weekend.

Face it...we are no longer the "United" States of America. We are more divided and fractured than half the Soviet satellites or the "stans" of Asia. We've been balkanized, cateorgized and completely separated. Divided into ethnic straight jackets defined by hyphens. This is no longer the country I knew since the late 80's.

We are nothing without...borders, a common language (1) and culture.

Kid said...

IMP, United? Nope. That says it all.

Watch how long such a dysfunctional organism can last.

JonBerg said...

Hey, Liberalmann:

If you really exist; just think about snuggling with Hillary as she pees the bed! I'll bet that the closest you will ever come to a relationship would be that. What do you think?

skudrunner said...

With articles like this you just get my hopes up.

I have a feeling that no matter how sick she is Bill will wheel her to the podium to accept the presidency because he is such a supportive spouse.

"Useful Idiots" is a pejorative term that was used by the Soviets to describe Soviet
sympathizers in Western countries and in the United States in particular. It is thought that
the Soviet leader Lenin was the first to use the term and it was used by the Soviets for
many years to ridicule misguided Americans who were willing to take the Soviet/Marxist
side against their own country. Some say that today the term "useful idiots" can be used
to describe those who support a malignant cause which they naïvely believe to be a force
for good. This is an attempt on the part of liberals to deflect the label of "useful idiots"
from themselves. Thus we have hippie/Marxist liberals saying that the term "useful idiots"
was used by the Soviets to refer to American capitalists and not the hippie/Marxist liberal
supporters of communism. Well, American liberals operate under the rules provided by
the Marxist Saul Alinsky, who said that any means were justified to bring about Marxism
in the United States. So, if the hippie/Marxist liberals say that capitalists were the "useful
idiots" to which the Soviets referred, then this lie is justified, and the more often the lie is
repeated, the greater the number of weak-minded and uninformed individuals that will
believe the lie.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I thinki Hillary is probably the ugliest she has ever been since her pot smoking, free sex days in college.

Her face would stop an eight-day clock.

Uh Oh...Russian's turning up the heat on US...from the Moscow Times:

In a separate development in the Ukraine crisis, Russian lawmakers moved to recall Russia's ambassador to the U.S. over remarks made by Obama, signalling a further deterioration in relations.

"When the U.S. president is actually threatening Russia, saying that Russia will pay dearly for it [the introduction of troops], this is disrespect to our people, to Russia, and we think that in these circumstances we have to act accordingly, and we will ask president [Putin] to recall the Russian ambassador to the U.S.," Matviyenko said, Interfax reported.
