Hillary Clinton, Bosnia, Serbia, Sniper Fire, My Friend Igor, Taking Your Daughter To War Zones, and other stuff like that

This has gone on for too long.
We don't need Hillary answering the phone at 3:00 a.m.
Everyone is exhausted with this. She is now so programmed that she can't remember what is truth, what is spin, and what's an outright lie.
My friend Igor (who will be a factor in some of my next China stories on this site) came into our morning production meeting laughing about Hillary claiming to be under sniper attack when she landed in Bosnia. Igor was just a few miles away from the Tuzla airport when Hillary landed with Chelsea, Sinbad the comedian, and some singers.
It seemed like a safe place to Igor.
This wasn't a one-time time lapse due to recent exhaustion. The videos below show her repeating this mess over and over for months.

In the novel "Gulliver's Travels", Jonathan Swift creates a world where politicians are given influence based on their ability to Jump Through Hoops (hence the phrase).
Hillary can't jump through them any more. They've been set too high. She can't remember what happened and what didn't.

Obama was recently presented one of the worst hoops imaginable with the Jeremiah Wright controversy. He got a running start, hit the ramp backwards just to show off, and went through the hoop with a triple-reverse backflip. And nailed the landing.

It's over.

Christopher Hitchens covered most of this territory almost 10 years ago in "No One Left To Lie To: The Values of The Worst Family".
The Clintons are going to risk destroying their party in the belief that Superdelegates will come over to their side at the convention. It ain't gonna happen. As of today, it ain't gonna happen.
She needs to drop out. Now.
She wasn't Co-President.
She wasn't Secretary of State. She played the same role as Betty Ford and Nancy Reagan, but without the alcohol or the astrologers.
She was not a resident of New York. She had no qualifications to represent New York in the Senate, as opposed to, say, South Dakota. She was elected as a carpetbagger, running for a "safe" seat.
She tried to socialize healthcare when Bill was President.
Despite having never engaged in cattle trading before, she somehow managed to pick the two best times to trade. She bought cattle contracts at the absolute lowest price, and sold them at the absolute highest price. After generating this hundred-fold profit, she quite cattle trading forever. If I EVER had luck like that at a Blackjack table, you couldn't pry me away with 20 mules and a chain hoist. (The more likely explanation being, in my opinion, that her money and a larger amount of donor money was poured into a common "pit". Futures prices vary wildly. At the end of a day's trading, paperwork was generated to show Clinton put money in the pit when prices were low. Other paper was generated saying she sold when prices were high. Donor paperwork showed the exact opposite.)

Democrats of the world, unite. You have nothing to lose but an election.
Enjoy the videos.

As George Castanza once said, "It is not a lie if you believe it." That was what she was banking on.

A great interview with Hillary’s pilot in Bosnia -


“Not only were there no bullets flying around, there was no bumblebees flying around.”.

What person would let his wife and 16 year old daughter enter a war zone and be exposed to sniper fire? No one would. You think you would remember running from sniper fire. She said it the first time she misspoke in 12 years; that might come back to haunt Hillary "Mount Everest-Not" Clinton.

There were 4000 armed men, Navy SEALS, Secret Service, 40 tanks, and attack helicopters overhead. As one military man said, “There was nobody coughing the day she showed up”. It is insulting to those protecting her

Thanks for the comment, and welcome to the treehouse.

Dick Morris has a more thorough list here: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/03/hillarys_list_of_lies.html

Some of this is what will routinely happen to a public figure who has to speak in public, sometimes extemporaneously, several times per day. But I believe a lot of it is because of an unbelieveable sense of entitlement. The sense of entitlement is so strong that nothing can stand in the way of it. Including da truth.

Does that make any sense at all???

agree completely about Hilary's sense of entitlement. this is why she will not step down even though any decent person would have done so eons ago.

Tennis chick,
The part of me that wants to see a great election battle by a super-smart African American and a super-smart War Hero? (The good side?)

That part of me is getting overwhelmed by the deep-rooted Libertarian/Republican side that just wants to sit back and watch the chaos and destruction. Pass the popcorn.

I thoroughly enjoyed browsing your Tennis Chick site. My daughter is on the mixed doubles team at her high school, and I've forwarded her the link.

Everyone else, if you want to read a heartbreaking story, read Tennis Chick's post on the loss of one of her brothers. "Unnecessary Losses" in the link below.

Though a bit of a reach-back to your post, in the end, we see the Great Foreign Policy Pundit become the sitting Secretary of State. The cabinet is filling up with tax cheats and liars.
