Hillary Clinton lied to America at least three times about being under sniper fire on a trip to Bosnia. When a pesky video of the trip showed a casual visit without the slightest hint of sniper fire or any other dangers, Hillary was forced to change course and she did so by suggesting that she had misspoken and that she was tired. Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, reopened that painful incident by mentioning it and then lying about the lie. He stated that Hillary was tired after a long day and that she made a mistake at 11 pm. Her lie occurred in the morning, not the night.
Bill is out talking about Obama’s smoke and mirrors campaign and how the older voters would be too smart to fall for Obama and would gravitate to Hillary. Bill spent part of the time trying to ensure his legacy was left intact by comparing his years in office with those of George Bush. Bill wants us to think that his eight years were full of peace and prosperity while the Bush years have been full of war and economic disaster. Of course these claims require a willing suspension of disbelief, but the Clintons are great at rewriting history. In any event, Bill is counting on senior citizens to elect his wife when he recently said that they would be forgetful people (as is his wife):
Last week, however, Clinton seemed to suggest that older voters might be more absent-minded than wise. Defending Hillary Clinton’s faulty recollection of landing under sniper fire during a 1996 humanitarian visit to Bosnia, the former president said of her critics, “When they’re 60, they’ll forget something when they’re tired at 11 o’clock at night, too.” Boston.com
I know that when people get older they sometimes have trouble remembering things. But this is Hillary Clinton we are talking about. Forgetting for a moment that she spoke in the morning and not at night (thus making Bill’s claims a lie), what does it say about Hillary if she is tired at 11 pm? For any other person we might say that it is not unusual but Hillary has already told us in one of her ads that she is ready to answer the phone at 3 am.
If Hillary is too tired at 11 pm and that is why she misspoke then how is she fit to answer that phone at 3 am? How will she be fresh and ready to answer the call without misspeaking or taking the wrong decisions? It would appear as if Hillary lied once again because in her commercial she is all dressed, make-up and jewelery in place and answering a phone to handle an emergency while the rest of us sleep under the blanket of protection she provides. However, in reality she and her husband have both admitted that she poops out by 11 pm and is not capable of competent thought at that time of night.
Her excuse for her lie contradicts the claims she made in the campaign ad. Bill and Hillary are used to having it both ways but during this campaign those two are yesterday’s news and people are much more critical. The MSM and the Democrats are only loyal to the moment and this moment belongs to Obama. The former Clinton supporters have jumped ship because there is a new kid in town. This means that the Clintons get tough scrutiny and in this case the lies keep getting exposed.
The Clintons can no longer have it both ways so either she was tired or she is ready to go at 3 am. I think she was tired and is not ready to go at any time. I also think her fatigue had nothing to do with what she said because it was a deliberate lie as was Bill’s assertion that she made the statement near midnight when she actually said it in the morning (and several other times in the past).
Maybe Obama can come up with an ad that says “It is 11 pm and there is an emergency. Do you want a tired old woman answering that phone and misspeaking us into a disaster?”
The Clintons are under a stronger microscope at this time. If Americans had paid this much attention when he ran for office the first time we would have never had the abomination that was his presidency. I hope America is smart enough not to make the same mistake twice.
Then again, Obama would be a worse disaster than either Clinton.
No matter what happens, we are so screwed…
