Hillary's vulnerability is her health, not her e-mails

Forget the e-mails. The Clintons inoculated themselves from scandal in Arkansas. Conservatives -- real ones, not those Washington phonies -- need to quit being Wile E. Coyote. All going after her does is sell more shoddy Acme products and push more fans her way. Meep meep.

But her latest scandal does provide an opening by raising new questions about her health.

From Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Hillary Clinton told the FBI she did not recall all the briefings she received on handling sensitive information as she made the transition from her post as U.S. secretary of state, due to a concussion suffered in 2012, according to a report released Friday.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation released a summary of the July 2 interview it conducted with the Democratic presidential candidate, as well as other details of its investigation into her use of a private email server while heading the State Department.
Clinton, who is challenging Republican Donald Trump for the White House in the Nov. 8 election, has been dogged by the fallout from her private email account for more than a year.
Republicans have repeatedly attacked Clinton over the issue, helping drive opinion polls that show many U.S. voters doubt her trustworthiness.
Clinton has said that in hindsight she regretted using a private email system while secretary of state.
Said the report, "Clinton said she received no instructions or direction regarding the preservation or production of records from (the) State (Department) during the transition out of her role as Secretary of State in 2013.
"However, in December of 2012, Clinton suffered a concussion and then around the New Year had a blood clot (in her head). Based on her doctor’s advice, she could only work at State for a few hours a day and could not recall every briefing she received," the report said.
She's a crook? Time to join the 21st century. Being a crooked Democratic politician no longer is a crime; it's a given.

Remember vote for the crook, it's that important?

Ah, but she's feeble and senile? That works. That we can see. That is fresh. That is new. That disqualifies her, particularly since she has a manipulator as her top aide.

Too old to be president just may work.

  1. The emails are an issue with the bloc she thought was hers - women.

    She's taking a pounding on the issue, but this is the other that will do her in. If she's taking 4 or 5 days a week off to rest, she'll die within a month of being inaugurated and the media knows it.

    that's the other issue that needs to be hit hard.

  2. Okay who told her to eat shit and die?

  3. She is a brain damaged dementia patient. She told the FBI that she was and is and therefore cannot be held accountable for bupkis. While I normally assume that everything she says is a lie, she looks like a demented old sick woman, dresses like one and is now to the point where she doesn't have the energy or memory to shower and wash her hair. This is the Democratic nominee for the presidency. The debates should be fun.

  4. Every time Clinton says she cannot recall, Trump ought to come back with a zinger about her medical unfitness for office.

  5. Memory loss from concussion is usually confined to the short time surrounding the event. Not for things that took place over particular periods years prior to the event. For her to claim memory loss for separate things years prior to the event the possible explanations are that she is lying about the memory loss, or that she has actual brain damage. My opinion is that she simply used the concussion as a convenient excuse to lie to the FBI. One could consider as well that she was allowed not to go through the security briefing, in which case whomever was supposed to do it should be fired, or that Hillary simply couldn't remember if she was briefed, in which case that excuse is just as bad as the possibility of brain damage from the clot (keep in mind that my opinion is that the clot was the primary problem and that I don't think she ever had a concussion) because admitting that she couldn't remember in the absence of any pathology is like admitting that you don't have the mental capacity for the office at all.
    So here she is, either a liar, brain damaged, or doesn't have the mental capacity for the office she seeks. Take your pick.

    1. Anyone who loses as many Blackberries as she is alleged to have done, despite having several staff aides who constantly look after her, is either too aged or too senile to be trusted with the nuclear codes or allowed anywhere near the "nuclear football." We now know during his presidency Bill C. lost his code and would not have been able to access the top security phone in an emergency for many, many weeks. If Hillary can't keep track of her Blackberry with all of the classified information she's kept on it, how can she be trusted with something as crucial as the secure code she'd need in order to contact the Joint Chiefs in a nuclear emergency? To hide her loss of memory from the public, would a President Hillary hand her code over to her Chief of Staff Huma Abedin? The possible ramifications just boggle the mind. And yet the Dems have the gall to say Donald Trump should never be trusted with the President's nuclear code! At least he'd be able to remember where he keeps it and not misplace it, unlike the two Grannies Clinton.

  6. One more thing. I don't know of any major media reporters doing ANY in-depth reporting on this. If this were the Republican candidate there would be all kinds of speculation from anonymous experts who would prefer not to be named being quoted in the major media. What we do see is Dr. Drew doing a little of this and then fucking losing his job! Hillary has the capacity to ruin people's lives and she isn't even the goddam president yet! How bad is it going to be after she's elected? If you haven't read Procopius' secret history of the reign of Justinian in Byzantium, go buy a copy right now. That's how bad it's going to be.

    1. I think we're way past Justinian's time. The way the Left and the NeverTrumpers are trying to betray the nation, this is shaping up to be more Manzikert than anything.

  7. What was that song with a line about a mean, evil, spiteful woman? OH! Poke-Salad Hillary!

  8. What Scott Adams was getting on about with his "Master Persuader" thing; and what I was getting on about with "Master Salesman, Promoter, and Marketer" is the selling of a candidate and the non-selling of the competition.

    We all like to think we are rational, and for some people appealing to a rational argument wins them over - like Volvo is safe; for most people an emotional argument is the winner - like Charger is Vroom-Vroom. The legal argument is too convoluted with "not charging" and all of that. The health argument is the emotional gripper - can this person stay for the four year haul? You can win on that one if one candidate appears energetic and the other does not appear - or when she does explains a bad concussion four years ago wiped out her memory. Umm - we should have empathy for you, but for our own well-being, avoid having you as president. 'Kay thanx bye.

  9. Trump could even play the sympathy card: "Folks, the Presidency is a demanding job. It's a stressful job. It's a job that ages people. Do you really want to stick this poor woman into that meat-grinder? She's been having difficulty campaigning. Taking days and weeks off. You can't do that when you're the President. How well do you think she'll cope with the demands of being President?"

  10. Electing hillary will result in huma abedin being POTUS similar to valerie jarrett being POTUS the last 8 years.

  11. Hill's been using that "I don't recall" schtick for a long time.
    Rush's parody song guy (I think it's Paul Shanklin) stated it well:
    "I can't remember, my brain's in a blender, it's Jello..."

  12. It's Bill Cosby’s BRAIN DAMAGE routine in real life:
    "Why did you do that?"
    "I dunno."
    "Well, that's BRAIN DAMAGE!"

  13. Hillary just needs a long rest. Fortunately, the FedGov has some suitable facilities in Florence, Colorado, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Sadly, the one in scenic San Francisco Bay is no longer accepting new clients.

  14. Hillary! didn't want to appear with Pena because Mexican TV wouldn't be as indulgent as the drooling US media. They would show her as she really is, a frail, decrepit shell virtually decomposing in front of our eyes.
