Hero tag AWOL?

I don't really have a relevant comment other than throwing shoes is wrong because that's going to be an awkward walk to jail, but I do have to say that the Mandalay bay is one of the best smelling hotels I've ever been in.

Seriously. I wish they bottled it.

I wish I could hear her reasons as to why. I have a feeling it's something like: "Well, Hillary didn't tell the Republicans what they wanted to hear during Benghazi, so I feel she has let our country down." I would of more thrown a shoe at her husband for not pushing harder for single payer healthcare when he was president and completely forgetting about it after it failed the first time (though I would thrown a shoe at her for accepting cash as a senator from the same companies her husband [and she spoke about] fought against in pushing single payer).

I hope this woman does not run and win. Woe there! Slow down! Just simmer down! It's not because of her sex or her politics. It's her age. She aged 15 years in the time she was SOS. That took a BIG toll on her health. How much more stress does anyone think she can take if she was POTUS? Personally, I don't want to have a President die while he/she is in office. It just farks things up all around.

There were ongoing protest at the US embassy in Egypt a couple hundred miles away over the video.  The state department made a bad assumption in their initial assessment of the situation that was soon corrected.  It is not a lie if you think it is the truth to the best of you're knowledge.

I didn't chastise him because it was Hillary Clinton, I look forward to her quite departure from politics (I really hope she keeps with her current "not running for President" status) but rather for the idea that it's okay to try to assault an elderly woman, whomever that woman is.  It could have been a Republican and I would have said the same.  But you go on with your bad self, maybe kick a puppy or push over a baby stroller while you're at it.

Let's accept your unsupported presumption that the Administration knowingly overemphasized the role the anti-"Innocence of the Muslims" protests played in the Bengazi attack;

In all seriousness, exactly what difference does it make? How would that knowledge have affected the outcome in any way? I am sincerely asking.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: A shoe?  What difference does it make?


It wasn't a shoe.  It was "what she described as a shoe "   Big difference.  Or maybe not

Point02GPA: Former President Carter threw more than a shoe at her work as Secretary of State. He gave her a ruff working over. Thumbs down for her according to him.


If I were Hillary I don't think I'd lose too much sleep over Carter not liking how I handled foreign policy.

billwill: Lee451: I think it is more like: Hillary lied and said Benghazi was caused by a video that stirred up the pious Muslims, a story she later retracted.


/4 Americans died but what do Liberals care? They probably voted Republican.....

There were ongoing protest at the US embassy in Egypt a couple hundred miles away over the video.  The state department made a bad assumption in their initial assessment of the situation that was soon corrected.  It is not a lie if you think it is the truth to the best of you're knowledge. That is what her intelligence analysts were telling her at the time.


Don't bother trying to talk sense to a Clinton-basher. Their knowledge isn't fact-based.

DarkSoulNoHope: I wish I could hear her reasons as to why. I have a feeling it's something like: "Well, Hillary didn't tell the Republicans what they wanted to hear during Benghazi, so I feel she has let our country down." I would of more thrown a shoe at her husband for not pushing harder for single payer healthcare when he was president and completely forgetting about it after it failed the first time (though I would thrown a shoe at her for accepting cash as a senator from the same companies her husband [and she spoke about] fought against in pushing single payer).




From a different article....
An attendee later handed a reporter a piece of paper that was apparently thrown by the woman. It appeared to be a copy of a Department of Defense document labeled confidential and dated August 1967; it referred to an operation "Cynthia" in Bolivia.

Operation Cynthia was about suppressing leftist gorillas in Bolivia. It appears that our shoe thrower is a disgruntled leftist who is crazy enough to blame it on Hillary or attacking her as symbol. If it makes you feel better I think she'd be right there with you on the healthcare reform, but she would probably prefer to just nationalize all hospitals and medical practices and draft everyone in the healthcare industry.

Viva la Revolucion!!!!

Meanwhile, this post indicates you are not taking your post stroke meds as you should. Might want to check into that.

WraithSama: I'm not a fan of W, but seeing as how US politicians don't really expect to have shoes thrown at them during speeches, his reflexive dodge of that shoe was actually pretty good, heh.

People rip on him for the cheerleading, but ESPN did a thing ranking him as "best President's ceremonial Opening Day Pitch" & went into how W. played baseball, basketball...& even rugby

I did some messing about in Wikipedia to try and connect Hillary to Bolivia.  In 1967, Hillary became a junior in college. In the wiki article, she also became a supporter of Senator Eugene McCarthy's presidential bid while she was a junior, but the article itself doesn't make clear that the campaign occurred in 1968 unless you follow the link to the source.

The most interesting thing that happened in Bolivia in late 1967 is that Che Guevara was captured and killed.  The Wikipedia article mentions that Guevara met McCarthy, but that happened in 1964.

So, I suppose this nut thinks that Hillary worked with Senator Eugene McCarthy to kill Che Guevara.  Excuse me, in a completely related event, my cat just horked up a hairball in the hallway.

All this speculating. It is interesting though. She could have at least had the decency to write a proper manifesto before she went on her shoe tossing rampage.

Am I gonna have to be the one to point it that the blonde cray cray shoe-tossing chick is kinda hot?

My guess is that her looks allowed her access to an area she had no business being in.

Pretty sure Hill's security detail is gonna be reworked after this.
