Social security ran a $47.8 billion deficit in 2012 and worker disability claims are now at nearly 9 million nationwide… that is if you don’t count Hillary Clinton.
On December 15, the day after the day after the shooting at a school in Newtown, Connecticut, State Department officials notified the press that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had fallen ill. “While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion,” deputy assistant secretary Philippe Reines said in a statement to the press.
Since then, Clinton does not appear to have been sighted in public.
On December 19, Clinton missed the State Department holiday party. “I was going to congratulate her on her record-breaking travel,” President Obama said, noting her absence. “These are not frequent-flyer miles,” he joked. “She is tireless and extraordinary.”
On the same day as her office announced her illness, they also put out word that Clinton would be missing the Benghazi hearing scheduled for December 20 on Capitol Hill. Indeed, she did miss that hearing, and another one has not yet been scheduled.
Just prior to this unfortunate spate of events, and only weeks after her ‘dear friend’ Ambassador Christopher Stevens literally got his ashes hauled out of our consulate in Benghazi, Secretary Clinton had to go wine tasting in Australia. This must have been part of the State Department’s essential food diplomacy program. The Aussies are doing great things with wine. Anyway, so that’s why she couldn’t make the Benghazi hearings that were scheduled that time.
Then she was invited back to the hearings but she had to rush off to visit several countries key to the security of the Western World—Northern Ireland and Belgium… and then she must have eaten the Slovak Haluski in the Czech Republic and it didn’t agree with her. Because it caused her to fall and hit her head.
So, gee, looking at the schedule… Nope, don’t know when she’ll recover… let’s see, she maybe could fit us in… sometime after she retires? Or maybe not.
Hey, Hillary 2016, right?
