article imageRove hints Hillary brain-damaged

The man known as “Bush’s brain” is speculating that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has suffered brain damage, and suggested Republicans should raise questions about her health as a campaign issue.
Speaking at a Los Angeles conference last Thursday, Karl Rove, a leading Republican strategist and a senior advisor to President George W. Bush, told the audience that Sec. Clinton’s hospitalization in December 2012 indicated something more serious than the removal of a blood clot, according to an article in the New York Post.
Clinton had been suffering from a stomach virus and had weakened when she fell in her Washington, D.C. home and suffered a concussion. She was discharged from New York Presbyterian Hospital after three days for treatment of a blood clot behind her right ear and later returned for more tests.
A master of innuendo, Rove altered the facts slightly and hinted at something more sinister.
“Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that,” Rove said. The claim was repeated a number of times in the course of his remarks.
A spokesperson for Clinton responded “Karl Rove has deceived the country for years, but there are no words for this level of lying.”
