Hillary Clinton; fibber in chief

Original post made by joe, College Terrace, on Mar 28, 2008

Her blatant deceit over Bosnia, among other lies, is about the last nail in her coffin.

A good memory is needed once we have lied,ā€¯ observed Pierre Corneille, the 17th-century French tragedian. He was right. The complexities involved in keeping an untruth plausible and consistent are so tortuous that to be really good at lying demands exceptional recall of what was said when and where.

But Corneille was writing before the age of YouTube. Nowadays, no amount of familiarity with memory's labyrinth will save you when there is downloadable disproof at the click of a mouse button. So Hillary Clinton discovered this week, when she was caught out in a prize fib about a trip she made to Bosnia when she was First Lady 12 years ago. Web Link

Someone once noted that the thing about the Clintons is that they will choose a big lie when a small lie will do, and choose a small lie when the truth will do. Most of the time they get away with it. But occasionally, an inconvenient truth, like a blue dress with DNA on it, or some forgotten news footage, shows up and damns them.

Why tell the truth when lies are FREE!

As my DAUGHTERs say she (CLINTON) is ruining things for women.

They should know these 2 girls are the women of the future.

Gee thanks Mia for the "World Net Daily" posting - nothing like reading something that makes Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Heil Hannity and even Michel Savage look like a bunch of pansies!

If only WND was in print - I'm running out of Charmin in my bathroom!

Does it matter where news comes from as long as it is VERIFIABLE?

So far, no contestation of this article.

So far, more proof that Obama lives in a dream world, inhabited by polygomous, irresponsible Dads who are victims, and racist, venomous preachers who are victims.

Not great for showing the good judgement necessary to the LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD.
