White House criticizes Rove over reported Hillary Clinton comment

Republican political consultant Rove speaks with the National Journal's Brownstein during the fifth annual Washington Ideas Forum at the Newseum in WashingtonBy Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House spokesman Jay Carney mocked Karl Rove on Tuesday after the Republican strategist was quoted as saying potential Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton might have suffered brain damage from a 2012 blood clot. The New York Post reported that Rove made the suggestion last week at a conference. Rove denied using the phrase, but told the Fox News Channel that Clinton’s health would be an issue should she run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. Asked about the brain damage comment at his daily news briefing, Carney noted the Republican’s steadfast refusal to admit President Barack Obama had defeated Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the key state of Ohio on election night in 2012.
