Hillary has a problem

Original post made by Gary, Downtown North, on Mar 24, 2008

Seems like Hillary is exaggerating her war experience (under sniper fire, with her daughter in tow).

Hillary is the problem she has always had a problem with the truth.

Her reasons are simple: Why tell the truth when lies are free.

That is unless there is video tape. Sniper fire, what does she know about that?

Monica is the only one to have been hit by Sniper fire.

The problem that Hillary "has" is that she is a Democrat.
What does Thatcher have to do with it? because she is a woman? I thought we had gotten to the point where we can look past gender.
Why don't you compare Thatcher to Bush II.

McCain has some real problems:

I give her a pass on this one. I understand the steep spiral approach used when there is danger of enemy fire is quite spectacular. I still remember when an Australian destroyer met my troop ship 10 hours out of Pusan and zigzagged across our bow all the way in. There were no enemy subs, but the threat was there. I suspect Hill thought she was at risk.

Doesn't it all depend on the definition of "is?"

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, in a wide-ranging interview today with Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporters and editors, said she would have left her church if her pastor made the sort of inflammatory remarks Sen. Barack Obama's former pastor made.

"He would not have been my pastor," Clinton said. "You don't choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend."

Obama's lead in national polls has slipped since clips of the retired Rev. Jeremiah Wright began being played on national news programs. The uproar prompted Obama to give a wide-ranging speech on race in America a week ago. The Clinton campaign has refrained from getting involved in the controversy, but Clinton herself, responding to a question, denounced what she said was "hate speech."

"I suspect Hill thought she was at risk"

That child reading her the poem was pretty scary. Good thing Sinbad was there to protect her. I think one doesnt forget the difference between snipper fire, having to run for your life, and a little child reading you a poem on the runway.

I will criticize Hill as a socialist fool, not for something like this. Snipers do not lay down a barrage, they just snipe occasionally.

Ron, you are funny.

Monica hit with Sniper fire! LOL

I am sure Monica remembers clearly her time on her knees ducking for cover.

"Snipers do not lay down a barrage, they just snipe occasionally."

Point is her recollection is nothing like what really happened.

She was resume padding and got caught.

I find it rather sad that, out of an 8 year presidency, under which the country was overall prosperous and at peace, the only thing people seem to be able to recall is the Monica Lewinsky incident. What a sad commentary on us as a people that Bill Clinton's presidency seems to be judged only through the very narrow lens of this unfortunate event.

collective, this race is about defining the heart of the democratic party as either centrist, or progressive. the latter have put up one effete candidate after another, since carter. clinton was the only exception; he found a way to take away gop talking points and put the dems back on the map. obama is of the old "hope and dreams" mold. let's hope that hillary's mandate in pa and a few other states finally puts a stake in the heart of the effete progressives that promise everything and do nothing. america is a centrist nation - we need less of neocons and saints (beknighted by the kennedy's and kerry's)

collective amnesia: you deny that 9/11 was planned under Clinton, the perps entered America under Clinton and then illegally stayed under Clinton? You deny that the housing price drop was worse in 1999, under Clinton, than now? You deny that in 2000 there was a REAL recession, not a feared recession, under Clinton? You deny that the only reason the budget was "balanced" was because Clinton gutted the military by 30%?

No, the country was not better off under Clinton, and poor Lewinsky is just a metaphor for what the Clintons (yes, I include H. for setting back women's equality by helping her husband fool the country over all those women, and for dissing women who stayed home with their kids as "just making cookies") did to us. THAT is why we remember her.
