Republican kingmaker Karl Rove is at it again.
Rove has suggested that Hillary Clinton may have suffered brain damage from a fall she took last December. “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears she is wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”
The former Secretary of State did take a fall last year and suffered a concussion that caused a blood clot to form. Clinton was treated at a New York hospital and released after several days. Her doctors said that she is fully recovered and in good health.
Republicans and Democrats alike criticized Rove for the crassness of his statements. But Rove doesn’t care about the facts. His goal was to make Clinton’s age and fitness for office an issue. Mission accomplished.
This is typical Karl Rove.
This is the guy who while running Bush 43’s campaign accused Bush rival, John McCain of fathering an illegitimate black child. Rove was behind the Swift Boat campaign that questioned John Kerry’s military records and torpedoed his run for the presidency. Rove labels his rivals with hints of pedophilia, theft, graft, adultery and incompetency on a whim. This is the guy who during the last election raised hundreds of millions of dollars for unqualified candidates that the Americans people soundly rejected.
When asked about Rove’s comments on Clinton’s health and capacity to serve White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: “Here is what I would say about cognitive capacity, which is that Dr. Rove might have been the last person in America world on election night to recognize and acknowledge that the president had won re-election, including the state of Ohio. So we’ll leave it at that.”
During Bush 43’s term in office Carl Rove was known as “Bush’s Brain.”
That explains a lot about Bush 43’s term in office.
