The face of fear

By 44 Comments 1,165 views

Hillary Clinton had a shoe thrown at her not long ago. How did she respond?

She cowered. She cringed. She was afraid.

Bush, on the other hand, handled it this way

Bush telegraphed strength. He wasn’t afraid. Hillary was terrified. The future democrat candidate screams fear.

She couldn’t see a thing. She is old. She looks infirm. She is brain damaged.

No thank you.

In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Her voice was high, tight and cracking.
    When she got some composure back she tried to crack a joke about how she played ball as a girl.
    The shoe-thrower is obsessed with Joker-killer James Egan Holmes.
    She’s a total nut case.
    Is she political?
    I haven’t heard.
    But her arrest was the last we saw of her.
    She is being kept behind bars somewhere.

    Dr John is indeed the funny sort. Oil man Bush, aside from his record of abject incompetence, was a guy that had no problem sending the working man’s kids off to be slaughtered for corporate profit but was the “real he man sort” because the way he responds to someone throwing a shoe at him? Or, or something akin to such jaw dropping lunacy.

    Is that seriously the best you’ve got?

    What a dumbass!

    It’s getting to the point where reading Dr John’s diatribes induces an urge to go wash the stupid off.

    I normally agree with you DrJohn, but not on this. These are two completely different circumstances? Bush was in a small, well lit room, and could see everybody. Hillary was on a stage with lights pointing at her from the front. I doubt that she could see into the audience very well. I have heard entertainers say that it is hard to see the audience with lights shining in their eyes. I have even seen entertainers put their hand in front of their eyes to see someone in the audience.

    Bush saw the man stand up and throw a shoe at him. In the video of Hillary, she didn’t know anything was coming at her until it had passed her. She didn’t know what it was. If I think something is flying around me, I would be protective of my head, just like she was.

    Hillary even started joking about the show throwing. She even asked if it was a bat. She then asked, “That someone throwing something at me?” Then she commented, “That part of ‘Circus Olay?’”

    I will condemn or criticize ANYBODY who deserves it, but I will also give credit to those I don’t like, if they deserve it. In this case, I think Hillary deserves credit for taking a serious situation and joking about it, but I still don’t want her to have ANYTHING TO DO WITH RUNNING MY COUNTRY.

    Actually, Hillary’s photo with hands clasped and her right foot in the air, looked like she was doing a highland jig or maybe practicing her hip hop movements as part of Michelle’s “Let’s Move” program.

    Hillary, here’s a serious beauty tip from a horseman: when old leather dries up and gets cracked, a little saddle soap and glycerin can make it look new. You might try it on your face and hands.

    If she were to become president then it will be another the emperor has no clothes administration. That is one image I DON”T want.

    Beyond this initial reporting, there was nothing else said. The word on the street is the owner of the shoe was a fellow democrat. If it were a Republican, they would have been arrested, tried without jury and hung by the neck until dead.

    What makes you think we want the image? Some things are better kept to yourself.

    If Hillary played softball, that’s news to me, and most of the world. She also said she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. Too bad she was born long before Edmund Hillary reached the summit of Mt Everest.

    The saddle soap and glycerin tip is a good one. My daughter gave that treatment to one of her older saddles. It almost looks brand new now. 🙂

    @DrJohn: Are wrinkles an issue? I mean, in light of the GOP taking all these racial hits and the popularity of Obamacare soaring, one would think you’d come up with something better than this. If that’s the best you’ve got, it certainly isn’t worth bragging about.

    Democrats, Obamacare is still electoral kryptonite

    Well, not really. From a political punditry perspective, it can be a 2014 tool in several elections, particularly in a midterm when stars are aligned in the R’s favor, for several reasons.

    In 2016? Not so much.

    IT could mean that was a warning of her future full of events,
    she might be double cross by her DEMOCRATS, THE ONE CLAPPING FOR A DEAD CITIZEN,
    which tell a lot of their mindset, grown even more dangerous by the indoctrination,
    coming from angry leadership in the 6 years pass,
    it ‘s surely had time to kill many NEURONS IN THEIR BRAIN,

    @Ronald J. Ward: More casualties under Obama, who dawdled on the surge in Afghanistan until it was too late, than under Bush. Obama, by his own admission, has no problem sending soldiers into harm’s way to make a political point, not achieve a national security goal.

    @Ronald J. Ward: ” Are wrinkles an issue?” Recall the “suntan” campaign against Boehner?

    I think it is more indicative of Hillary’s possible health issues. She was not wearing her special glasses and could not tell the difference between a red shoe and a bat. She could have at least braved an oncoming shoe as bravely as she braved snipers in Bosnia.

    Macho “w” was a cheerleader at Yale though his dad was captain of the baseball team.
    “w” was also a drunken Deke like his dad.

    @Rich Wheeler:
    Tea-totaler in the WH, Bush throws a strike in his first pitch.
    Obama’s own aides said he has instituted Wednesday cocktail parties. His ”pitch,” was feet wide and feet high.

    See, Rich, there are some people (like Bush) who learn from their past mistakes.
    But then there are people (like Obama) who keep on partying hardy until they die from it.

    @Bill Burris: I have to question your linkless claim that more died in Afghanistan under Obama than Bush or the circumstances of a particular event of the war.

    Boehner’s suntan was an absolute nothingburger and had nor will have any relevance in politics, much like Dr. John’s poor attempt here. Aside from the comical jabs, only the lower end writers of the lower end hack sites tried to suggest the suntan was a real political issue.

    I was up all night out on the town with a large group of enlisted USMC Reservists before they headed off for specialized training and then Iraq. Almost all of them were in college or just out when they got called up. Most of them wanted very much to serve the country then make big bucks and have kids. They believed in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Unfortunately one of the two that came home covered with a flag was mine. Be careful of misinformation from your team. The media convinced much of the ignorant public that President Ford was a uncoordinated ignoramus. Actually he was a scholar and athlete, I think maybe a QB at Yale American Football. Also, G Bush was on the cutting edge for having “minorities in his admin. But then that is not going to be reported accurately outside media such as this site which are for freedom, truth and being a real man (working to support your offspring). I treat my female associates as equals so don’t waste your time there.

    @Kraken: I live for the far-flung day when a liberal finally draws the conclusion that they have been fed lies their entire lives and nothing they have stood for is based on fact. If only one.

    @Bill Burris:

    Trying to set them straight by passing on experience doesn’t work because they’ve been led to believe that as teenagers they’re wiser than adults. This problem continues into college, and by graduation they’re mostly hopeless because giving up their worthless ideology means that they spent thousands of dollars and years of effort gaining an education that ultimately means nothing.

    But believe it or not, there are drones who break out of the Collective. It requires personal experience though. Breitbart was one. That’s why they hated him so much.

    Like HW, W and myself, he was a DKE.

    @Skookum: When I was in high school, I had the worst acne breakout I have ever seen on anybody. When my mom finally took me to a dermatologist, he said he knew of ONE person that had it worse than me. This was in Des Moines, Iowa, and I’m sure he meant to make me feel better, but it made me feel worse.

    I didn’t CHOOSE to look like that, but people didn’t want anything to do with me because of how I looked. This is why I have a problem with people judging other people by how they look, and why I will never use the “U” word.

    It’s usually the liberals who condemn any conservative they can because of their looks. I very seldom hear a conservative condemn someone because of their looks. If a conservative condemns a liberal for how they look, then they should also condemn EVERY conservative who doesn’t live up to the looks standard.

    I don’t judge a person by their OUTSIDE. I judge them by their INSIDE. I can adjust to their outside, but I can’t adjust to some people’s inside.

    This reminds me of a story I read many years ago. A man wrote that he was at some gathering, and he noticed a man standing along a wall by himself. The man was scarred on one side of his face, and nobody visited with him.

    A short time later, a little girl entered the room, looked around, saw the man, and yelled, “Grandpa!” She ran to him, and he lifted her up, and she kissed him on the scarred part of his face.

    I try to be like the little girl, instead of like the rest of the people in the room. I’ll bet that if every person who doesn’t look very good on the outside were asked why they chose to look like they do, they would answer that they didn’t CHOOSE to look like they do.

    I’m confused. Ronald expects US to use the Internet to prove HIS points, but HE doesn’t use the Internet to prove OUR points. I’m surprised that you supplied only ONE link, when there are many. I guess if Ronald WANTS to find them, he can, but will he?

    You reminded me that at the end of Reagan’s time as president, he was asked if he had any regrets. His answer was, “Well,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,that I was ever a democrat.”

    Don’t be confused. Hypocrisy is the foundation of all leftist thought.

    The rightists are getting very good at it too. They are very hard to tell apart any more. That is why I don’t belong to EITHER of them.

    You guys touched on it, by the time she runs, she will have dodged another hail of sniper fire while continuing to give her speech – her bravery should be written down for future generations to worship and bow in awe to.
