Hillary Plays the Martyr

"and the rockets red glare, I tell ya, and the bombs...wow...bursting in air...'sniff'...gave proof through the night, that my ass was still there."

When you are in a hole, stop digging. The more HRC apologizes and attributes her mistake to her humanity, the more attention her deliberate fabrication garners.

There is no doubt that her commentary on her Bosnian junket was planned to show her the best choice as Commander in Chief over Obama. Her handlers' miscalculation was to not account for the fact that there were others there. There were cameras. Essentially, no one thought she'd get caught.

At this point, it would be best just to let it fade away. Hillary, not unlike her opponent Obama, doesn't know when to leave bad enough alone.



In a recent speech and interviews, the New York senator described a harrowing scene in Tuzla, Bosnia, in which she and her daughter, Chelsea, had to run for cover as soon as they landed for a visit in But video footage of the day showed a peaceful reception in which a young girl greeted the first lady on the tarmac.

Clinton told reporters in Pennsylvania on Tuesday that she erred in describing the scene, which she now realizes after talking with aides and others.

"So I made a mistake," she said. "That happens. It proves I'm human, which you know, for some people, is a revelation."

Kind of like stating that Iran is helping Al Qaeda, and then repeating that statement 3 more times...

Neither Clinton or McCain have any credibility in the area of foreign policy.

Actually, Smithers, they're starting to come to that very conclusion in the halls of the CIA. Odd as it is to think that Shi'a and Sunni would cooperate, there is "the enemy of my enemy is my friend," you know.

Smithers said...

Actually, you are wrong.

The best thing to get Al Qaeda out of Iraq would be for us to leave. The Shiite Iraqis can then stop fighting us and get to the business of exterminating extremist Sunnis.

Iran working with Al Qaeda is just another neo-con wet dream and has no basis in fact or reality. Not that fact and reality is at all important to Saint John McCain of Maverick.

Actually, you are the one who is wrong.

Smithers said...

Weekly Standard? The guys that are always wrong about everything?

OK, I know where you are coming from now. Get back to me when you actually have a credible source for your news.

Bike Bubba said...

Smithers, the column links its sources. As much fun as your juvenile attack was for you, it doesn't attack the core reliability of the story.

Smithers said...

The Weekly Standard is crap and so are it's sources. Bill Kristol, Fred Barnes, Stephen F. Hayes, etc. have been wrong so many times that it's folly to quote them or anything from their magazine.

Intelligence on Iran is inadequate, but as far as our agencies have been able to determine, there is no operational relationship between Shiite Iran and the Sunni extremists of al-Qaida. Iran was aiding the United States with intelligence on al Qaeda and the Taliban while we were fighting in Afghanistan until Bush started talking about the "axis of evil".

Weekly Standard, National Review, Washington Times, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and their sources have zero credibility with me.

Bike Bubba said...

So when the Standard links, say, the New York Times--and it does--then we can assume that the Times of full of it?

I like this game. They like DU, Kos, and others, too. Must have the inverse Midas touch.

Or maybe it's someone else who's full of it.

You are not going to see me defend the NYT.

Bike Bubba said...

Exactly what sources DO have credibility, then? I'm all for a good dose of skepticism, but yeesh...

Smithers said...

Pretty much just me. No one interviews me on CNN or FOX so very few people know what an expert I am about pretty much everything.
