Guess Fox News is going to stop saying that Mrs. Clinton was shamming.

Can’t stand that Stuart Varney idiot on Fox News. Glad that CNN and CNBC got rid of his sorry arse some time ago.

My prayers go out to her. She is a remarkable women and has worked tirelessly for this country in the past years.

I hope that all will send out good karma for her return to good health.

If this story is true, about the blood clot then I am concerned and wish her well. However, if this is a made up story just to keep her out of harms way with the Bengazi testimony…she, and all the Democrats including Obama, who are trying to sheild her, should rot in Hell. Those poor diplomats died, due to the governments failure to help them.

When liberals say “my prayers go out to her”, what does that mean? Are they praying “to” her? Are they praying to a liberal god? Which god? Or is it just a “feel good” liberal phrase of sympathy?

Mrs. Clinton has served us all well as First Lady, and as Secretary of State. She is brilliant, and patriotic. Anyone who does not wish her well, is a traitor and a member of a subhuman species.

@victor672 You write as if you’re a Fox zombie

Fox News has rendered a portion of America functionally stupid, particularly xxxxx people who live outside of urban areas. Just like the hit AMC show, these people live in constant fear, carry a lot of guns and don’t trust other human beings at all, and their rural society has absolutely collapsed around them. The problem is, Fox News Viewers aren’t the heroic rural townsfolk who are fighting to survive, Fox News viewers are the mindless zombies trying to eat your brains.

They wail and groan in a language only other Fox zombies understand, or, as Stephen Colbert once put it, on a frequency only xxxxx people can hear.

They lash out at anyone who isn’t a Fox zombie as well.

And their leader is Zombie Rea-gan, a man who would have been labelled a RINO today and torn to shreds by an angry herd of Republican primary voters. Their ideas have failed over and over, but that doesn’t matter to them, they will just repackage rejected ideas, learning nothing in the process. Facts don’t work on zombies. Neither does Reality.

The good news is that Fox zombie-ism only infects Republicans who watch Fox news. America’s youth is highly resistant to Fox zombie-ism, and it seems that the worst has passed. Sadly, many of those unfortunate people who are trapped in a world of death panels and zombie Reagan worship are beyond recall. Consistently the least informed people in America by a long shot, they are The Walking Dumb.

This is sort of beside the point..But, Are any of you folks tired of hearing that overused phrase,”Our Hearts and Prayers go out to the victim and his/her family”. At this point, that phrase is used for dead dogs and cats and frogs. It makes me madder than hell that the President and other powers that be, can’t come up with something much more sincere than this overused phrase. If one is really sincere, then come up with something that is comforting to the families that is heartfelt.

Chris Stevens and his bodyguards made the decision to leave the well- guarded embassy at Tripoli and travel to Benghazi. They obviously felt the trip was safe. Republicans making political hay of of their deaths are pond scum.

@Bunker555: Oh you urban sophisticate you! Of course anyone who doesn’t believe in your enlightened world view is a backward imbecile. You and your ilk are nothing more than a group of pampered self-absorbed effete pseudo-intellectuals. You sit on your loathsome behinds spouting quasi-socialistic drivel while drifting rudderless in a sea of moral relativism. You are spineless, you are shallow, you are hypocrites, you are a plague on this country. You stand for nothing. You have no courage. You have no understanding of true suffering, instead you whine about your petty first world problems, while pretending to care about the poor and the downtrodden. Your beliefs are vapid changing with the wind or with the latest fad fed to you. I would pity you if you were worthy of pity,

It is, of course, totally possible that

A) She is delaying the unpleasant prospect of testifying before political enemies on the incompetent performance of her subordinates

AND

B) She is exhausted and ill

Billary, in the end, were masters of managing the news cycle, plus there has been speculation on when her work schedule would catch up with her and impact her health for at least the last year.

Fact is, she had no business managing the details of the operations anywhere, at her level she works in policy and SHOULD have no knowledge of details. She has subordinates for that, and they did not do their jobs and lost them.

Susan Rice was playing a political game, and got caught. Sadly, O will probably find a place for her and she will survive. Good news is he will never have his Condi Rice. Kerry is independent enough that O’s influence in foreign policy will be mitigated and negligible. It will free him up for cheer-leading, which is all he has ability and knowledge on.

The release of confidential health information is a clear violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act privacy rule. You remember good ol’ Billy Boy enacted that. The day Billy got a heart attack, it was all over the news. Now that Hillary has got the runs, and ultimately a concussion and a blood clot, it is all over the news, once again. So much for “privacy”.

Typical mainstream media coddling of the Obama administration while disregarding the obvious political manipulation of the truth about Benghazi. At least the author suggests, albeit without coming right out and saying it, that this latest medical dilemma which surely will keep Hillary from testifying under oath about Benghazi, is unlikely to say the least. The gullible and dumb will out though. Hillary for President! Yayyyyyy!

Bunker 555, you are a true believer. You follow KNBC and Rachel Maddow like the kitten you have been trained to be. You buy into all that mainstream media tells you to believe regardless of how stupid the notion might be. You are a true patriot. Keep up the highly intelligent work you have done and continue ignoring what your idol Obama is doing to America. Dolts unite!

Dear Victor672, It really is a shame that you feel the need to use this site as a vehicle for your anger. People pray on both sides of the aisle and prayer comes in many forms and many places and many gods. It is sad that you show your anger and hate. It appears that your faith has not taught you or inspired you to have a good heart.
I hope that in the new year you find peace and good will to all mankind.

Amazed at the venom! I wondered, from the beginning on this concussion, if she had a minor stroke (that is being minimized.) All that jet-lag plus the growing pressure to “do another lap” as candidate in 2016 must be a treadmill. But all you hate-filled folks, what’s your real issue????

I can’t believe either side of the political spectrum has been honestly lead by the political party they are from. It seams the only thing they know for sure is hat they are right, just moral and god’s favored people. I don’t think republicans are all “Sub’s”, or that democrats are all cowardly traitors. There are some of each in either party. I know for damned sure that Hillary didn’t make the arrangements for the security in Benghazi! If anything, republicans that blocked the diplomatic budget bill had more to do with it. Why would anyone in the democratic party have the liberal ambassador killed? Republicans cry out for smaller government when they aren’t in control, they will want it all back when they are back in control. At least Pres. Obama didn’t go and declare war on Benghazi, it was an act of terrorism, send in the police, at most a drone!

@ OhioGirl

No it does not make me mad to hear them say our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, because I know that President Obama is sincere. He spent hours with the families and spoke from the heart about how tragic this shooting was. What does piss me off, are people who have to bad mouth the President and Hillary. Obama did not just do a flighover like someone did with Hurricane Katrina. He did the right thing.
