Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign said she "misspoke" last week when saying she had landed under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia as first lady in March 1996.-- ANN SANNER, Associated Press Writer
Question how do you misspeak about sniper fire that involved a plane that you, your child and witnesses were on? And how do you say lied in Clintonese?
I understand that rappers expand on the truth about their bullet wounds to get that much coveted street cred. But does a presidential candidate need bullet holes in a plane to get dangerous foreign experience cred to bolster her political résumé?
Apparently Sen. Hillary Clinton though so when she began to convey a ridiculous story of how her good will tour, loaded up with a Singer, a Comedian and her baby girl, to Bosnia in 1996 all of a sudden became a harrowing fly by the seat of your pants mission that took on sniper fire.
And then when the plane landed she, because she was an important dignitary, the first lady, was rushed to safety crouching under the stalwart protection of the secret service.
Is that the way you remember it Sen. Clinton? Well unfortunately for you, but fortunate for the American people, you also took a camera crew and the camera remembers it a little bit different then you do, ergo your campaign’s admission that you may have “misspoke” about your Bosnia trip. Hum, where is Rev. Wright when you need him?
Sen. Clinton you could have opted to use your ‘I don’t remember’ shtick that worked so well for you in the past as it is reported that you used in an effort to avoid being indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice by repeating the phrases; ‘I do not recall,’ ‘I have no recollection,’ and ‘I don’t know’ 56 times under oath involving your Rose law firm dealings. Now, I don’t know if that is true or not. But boy, that strategy would have come in quite handy when Sen. Clinton was asked about her recollection concerning her ’96 trip to Bosnia.
Just another in the long line of lies by the Clintons and as David Geffen reminds us:
"Everybody in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it's troubling."--David Geffen, one time friend and confidante of the Clintons
Oh and by the way here is that video Sen. Clinton that contradicts your account of running from sniper fire. In the actual account I think that you’re getting poetry read to you, a flower and greeted by a little girl.
I’m sure you probably would have preferred bullets instead. Got to keep up that dangerous foreign experience rep, now don’t we!
