    Oh yes! You can't fake a blood clot. Hillary shouldn't testify.

    If the news reports it, then it must be true.

    Re: "Remember when the republicans loved Clinton?"

    The subtlety of intellectual conservative humor is always lost on sophomoric, true-believing liberals.

    Rush's endorsement of Hillary was designed solely to prolong the Democrat primary and take the polish off the Obama candidacy.

    Nothing more.

    There has never been any love lost between Rush and the Clintons, who he often refers to as "Hillary and Biliary."

    Remember when the republicans loved Clinton? I remember Rush gushing over her like she was the greatest thing in the world. Until Obama got the nomination.

    Oooops. Typo. Thanks for catching that, xscribe. But it will also be fun in 2014 when Democrats sweep the dead wood out of the House.

    Re: "Righties won't believe any report unless it says what they want it to say, pure and simple."

    It's funny that lefties are already offering the concussion as her excuse. It's just a matter of time before Hillary, herself does, of course, but she hasn't yet.

    Just gullible leftist true believers.

    Maple Don-
    Here is some love for you and your fellow haters. Happy New Year and may you and your loved ones have good health in 2013. Issues and controversies will continue to come out of Washington in 2013 and in the whole scheme of things they are really inconsquential. I choose to focus on the good things we have been blessed with in this country. They are many.

    "And the concussion/blood clot story, while perhaps true, is pure smokescreen."

    Contradictory statement at its finest!

    Righties won't believe any report unless it says what they want it to say, pure and simple. Same goes with many other issues: Unless things happen "their" way, it is either wrong or some kind of conspiracy!

    @One Old Man: Did we enact a two-year presidency that I didn't know about? As I have said in other posts, it will be Hillary or Jeb Bush as the next president, but not until 2016!

    It will really be a lot of fun when, in 2014, Clinton becomes our next President after the GOP is once again unable to find any credible and competent candidates.

    Seismographs around the world will record at least a Richter 9.5 event coming from Utah.

    Exactly FT.

    When one listens to hate radio and watches propaganda every day it results in garbage in, garbage out.

    Republicans are sore losers.


    Why is Clinton being asked to testify? Good question to ask the Republicans on the committee.

    Procur, you reveal yourself, not in a good way. Good job.

    Symptoms of concussion, look it up.

    Loss of short-term memory (you may not remember the actual injury and the events some time before or after the impact)
    Perseverating (repeating the same thing over and over, despite being told the answer each time, for example, "Was I in an accident?")

    Concussion Follow-up
    After initial treatment, the patient will be referred for follow-up care to their primary care doctor or a specialist, such as a neurologist. It is important to keep these appointments, particularly because some of the more subtle problems of concussion (memory deficits, personality changes, and changes in cognition) may not be apparent at the time of the initial injury.

    @FT "The people who hate, will continue hating." I don't see you and your cohorts dishing out love this morning (or at any time).

    Conspiracy theories have followed the Clintons from their days in Arkansas. Thank goodness for people like you who stand by their side and spew hatred against anyone bringing up supposed conspiracies regarding them.

    As Grammy3 stated, however, it's unfortunate that we're not getting to the bottom of what actually took place in Benghazi.

    And Kalindra, if that "report" was so clear, then why was Clinton to testify (that's now been avoided)? And so far, the State Department (which she runs) has received most of the blame.

    That's why some of the conspiracy theorists are not surprised by her sudden illness and inability to testify.

    But you go ahead and tell the rest of the three or four people listening to you that there is no controversy here.

    Re: "We did get to the bottom of what happened - a very comprehensive report was issued."

    Comprehensive? All it said was mistakes were made, but no one made them.

    And, there's certainly no answer to the question of what senior Obama-regime people knew, when they knew it, and what lies they told to keep a lid on the story until after the election.

    This is an exact political equivalent of Watergate and Nixon's 18-minute tape gap. And the concussion/blood clot story, while perhaps true, is pure smokescreen. I'm close to someone who had a similar blood clot. Was on coumadin for a year. Didn't affect her memory in the slightest.

    The sole purpose of this political operation is keeping Hillary from having to testify before Congress, and preserve her as the presumptive Democrat candidate in 2016.

    I hope it works. She'd be easy to beat. But that doesn't change the fact that this is cynical political theater at its worst.

    @ Grammy3: We did get to the bottom of what happened - a very comprehensive report was issued.

    You and others may not like what was in that report and may choose to continue to believe the lies of rabble rousers, and that is your choice - but the answers are there and we do know happened and what mistakes were made.

    If you truly have compassion for the families who lost loved ones, let them mourn in peace and stop using their loss to try to destroy the President and this country.

    You know I have no idea if it is true or not. To be quite truthful I could care less whether or not those who are saying that the timing is fishy on this. What bothers me though is that we probably will never get to the bottom of what happened that day or night on 9-11 in Libya. I feel sorry for those who loved these men and do not have the answers that they deserve to have. They do not have the closer that they need to move on with their lives. These men also should be honored for what they did to protect so many who could have been killed that day. So to me this is the story not that she is in the Hospital or that she fell or so on. It is getting to the answers that these family members should have. It is a sad day in this Country when we can not trust anyone any more because of all of the corruption in our Government.

    I seem to recall many on this board who had already concluded that this was all an excuse.

    I am certain that those who did will come forward to admit their mistake. NOT

    Wow. Wonder if Fox News will issue an apology. Hard to 'fake' a blood clot.
