Hillary’s description of her trip into war-torn Bosnia has earned her 4 Pinocchios from the Washington Post. Thanks to her telling whoppers, we’ve now established a new standard previously unattained by major party presidential candidates. The finalists for the Democratic nomination have both bene caught lying about something important within a month of each other. Here’s what’s touching off the firestorm:
Clinton insisted, “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”
Here’s the YouTube video that argues against Sen. Clinton:
I know that I’ve got hearing problems and my eyesight ain’t what it used to be but I didn’t hear any sniper fire and I’m certain that Hillary, Chelsea and company weren’t dodging bullets as they left the helicopter.
Let’s remember that it was only a week ago Friday that Obama denied hearing Pastor J-Wright’s incendiary sermons, only to admit last Tuesday that he had heard some of them.
If Sen. McCain were to write the perfect script for his campaign, I don’t think he’d write it much different than this. His primary function is to inject himself into the headlines often enough to remind people that he’s the adult in the race and that he’s a statesman. Then he steps off center stage, raises a bunch of money and watches Hillary and Obama beat each other up while spending millions of dollars against each other.
There’s a few things that are undeniable:
- Hillary wasn’t the model of virtue that Obama started off as;
- Obama isn’t the model of virtue that he started off as and
- John McCain is the beneficiary of the first two undeniable facts.
To a Republican, that’s proof enough that there is a God.
