Senator Clinton, does lying have no limits?
Presidents lie, I guess: LBJ on the Gulf of Tonkin. Nixon on Watergate. Reagan denied involvement in Iran-Contra. Clinton “did not have sex with that woman” (lots of people pay good money to not have sex like that). GWB about … oh, forget it (some of my conservative friends still believe Bush’s statements were well-intentioned mistakes, to which I say, “Dear ones, you are not looking.”)
It comes hard to me to admit all this. I clung to hope that Bush was honest much longer than I should have. It still disappoints me (yes, I’m naive and stupid.)
But friends, Hillary did not mis-speak. In her prepared comments, starting in January, and even after being called on it, she repeated a fairy tale that cast herself as a hero, bravely landing under fire, running for cover. As the girl from the Tuzsla airport recently said, “It is an ugly thing for a politician to tell lies.” Hillary brushed it off as unimportant, just a blip, a result of lack of sleep. Since January. In prepared remarks.
Let me ask you, do you accidentally tell stories about yourself running from gunfire? Wouldn’t people doubt your competence if you did?
Check me out. Here are two reporters’ takes on it. See what you think.
It does appear that Hillary’s trust numbers have fallen a bit. But I am baffled: Why on earth would anyone vote to put someone who so blatantly lies—or has so lost touch with reality—in the White House? Would it be good for feminism for the first female President to be untrustworthy? Would it strengthen trust in the USA around the world? Would her positions prove legit? Would the Progressive agenda grow in stature? How can any of it be trusted? After all, she lied for personal political gain, not to protect a state secret here. What possible motive would she have for not doing so in the future?
I disagree with McCain on every issue that comes to mind, but I believe Hillary to be ethically unqualified. With Bush, we weren’t so sure till later. With Clinton, we know in advance. Save us from liars.
Enough of that, time to lighten up. Here are two splendid short parodies of Hillary’s raid on Bosnia. If you can’t make fun of lying, why did God invent satire?
Thanks for watching!
