With Hillary, the truth depends on catching her in a lie

Posted by Anthony L. Hall

Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling….

[David Geffen, entertainment mogul and former Clinton fundraiser, in 2007]

When former senator Bob Kerry, a Democrat from Nebraska, called Bill Clinton “an unusually good liar” in 1996, he might have been motivated as much by political envy as by moral indignation.

However, even Kerry could not have fathomed the depth of Bill’s pathology for telling lies. After all, this was before Bill wagged his finger at the American people and declared imperiously “I did not have sex with that woman … Ms. Lewinsky;” and before he compounded this lie by dissembling under oath that having sex “depends on what the meaning of is, is.”

But what no one could have fathomed is that his saintly wife Hillary is even more afflicted with this pathology. Indeed, there’s a reason why Bill’s nose is so big. Whereas, Hillary reeks of such self-righteousness that one can be forgiven the impression that every word she utters is the gospel truth.

Therefore, it seems a case of divine retribution that she was caught telling a whopper about her mission to Bosnia that would make even Bill blush.

Hillary has been claiming throughout this campaign that her landing there was “harrowing.” In fact, just last week, here’s how she reiterated her self-aggrandizing version of events to burnish her Commander-in-Chief bona fides (i.e., as an example of why she would be “ready on day one to answer that 3 a.m. phone call at the White House”):

I certainly do remember that trip…to Bosnia… There was a saying around the White House that if a place was too poor, too dangerous, the president couldn’t go so send the first lady and that’s where we went. And, ah, I remember landing under sniper fire. It 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, ah, to get to our base. But it was a moment of great pride for me.

Except that CBS News has now produced a videotape showing that her landing in Bosnia was no more harrowing than the many landings she made in places like Idaho and Arkansas during her tenure as first lady. Specifically, it shows not only that there was no sniper fire, but also that Hillary was actually greeted by a welcoming party featuring an 8-year-old Bosnian girl who even read her a poem.

Yet it’s a testament to Hillary’s supervening mendacity and political hubris that she fully expected everyone associated with this trip, including the members of her traveling press corps, to endorse her lies. And, let’s face it, they have been doing just that by their silence until CBS broke this story a few days ago….

All the same, here’s what comedian Sinbad – who accompanied Hillary to entertain the troops – said last week about this allegedly harrowing experience:

The ‘scariest’ part of the trip was wondering where I’d eat next. I think the only ‘red-phone’ moment was: ‘Do we eat here or at the next place.’

Therefore, if you buy Hillary’s explanation that “I misspoke…that happens, it proves I’m human,” then you’re the kind of sucker she’s hoping will buy into the “2 for 1” notion that – based on Bill’s presidency – she’s entitled to be president.

Nevertheless, since such resume embellishments have been just cause to fire corporate CEOs and university presidents, this should be just cause to question Hillary’s fitness to serve as the next president of the United States.

Meanwhile, you’ve probably heard her insisting lately that “I have been a critic of NAFTA from the beginning.” She even condemned Obama as “shameless” for suggesting otherwise.

Yet the White House papers she finally released last week (under court order) reveal that she was as big a cheerleader for this now discredited trade agreement as she was a pivotal player for the Clinton Administration’s failed health-care initiative.

Therefore, given that she’s been caught in such a tangled web of lies, it’s no wonder she tried to deflect criticisms yesterday by speaking out on the Rev. Wright controversy for the first time. This, despite vowing just days ago that she would never wallow in the gutter with political pundits who have accused Obama of a cardinal sin for refusing to abandon his Church. But into the gutter she went…head first.

    Man the freakin’ life boats, this ship is going down and the bitch is taking everyone with her!

    Get the feeling that she’d rather see McCain win than her own party? So that she can mount another run at the white house in four years? Win at all costs. Why haven’t the party leaders stepped in?

    At this rate McCain will be President and the Democratic Party will be history.
