Hillary Had No Role in Irish Peace, Despite Billís Claims
FOXNews.com ^ | December 28, 2007 | Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

Recently, as only Hillary can do, she claimed that she was “deeply involved in the Irish peace process.” Bill has also picked up the theme, citing her “independent” role in resolving the century-old conflict as “experience” with which to justify a White House run.

How odd that Hillary forgot to mention her pivotal role in Ireland just four years ago, when she wrote her $8 million memoir, Living History. There, she told a very different story.

Her first mention of Ireland was in a discussion of Bill’s October 2004 trip:

“The trip highlighted Bill’s milestones in foreign affairs. In addition to his pivotal role in easing the tensions in the Middle East, he was now focusing on the decades Long Troubles in Northern Ireland.” (Emphasis added)

No memories of her own involvement in the Irish “troubles.”

Ireland next appeared in Hillary’s memoirs in 1995, when the Clintons visited Belfast and Dublin. According to Hillary, while Bill met with the “various factions” of Irish politics, Hillary met with women leaders of the peace movement. Rather than discuss the difficulties of the peace process, Hillary focused on a teapot used by the women:

It shows just what they think of the intelligence of the American electorate that the Clintons just assumed people would believe it when told of Hillary's vast experience in, well, anything.

The only Irish peace that Hillary had anything to do with is some Irish chick Hillary had a piece of in a lesbian fling with.

Yeah, she wrote all about her Irish experience in her “Living History” book.

It amounted to a dented teapot.

Yes indeed, but the PC term for this particular brand of BS is called "progressive".

I wonder if she kissed the Blarney Stone? I wonder if I should tell her what the blokes over there do to it if she did?

I cannot believe that these two self-proclaimed “most intelligent people in the world” do not know that everything that spews forth from their venomous-fork-tongued mouths can be verified in a matter of seconds on the internet!! This ain’t 1992, Bill and Hill!!
(And it looks like the MSM is not covering for them anymore, either!)

Hillary enjoyed operating as a hidden hand. While giving instructions as First Lady, she was known to tell her staff, "Don't leave any fingerprints." White House adviser George Stephanopoulos recalled her explaining, "You have to be much craftier behind the scenes." -- Sally Bedell Smith, Clinton biographer, Newsweek: Dec. 31, 2007-Jan. 7, 2008 issue

And that's how the Hilliary camp will explain away the lack of public fingerprints.

But even Bedell Smith, in her article, acknowledges there is not much evidence Hilliary had a winning influence on the foreign policy stage. What advice she did give was as likely as not to be unpersuasive.

The beast is learning she can’t MAKE things true by merely saying they are. The ratmedia seems to have turned on her a bit, but let’s see how long they stay on that path.

Sooooo....Hillary DID stay at home and have "tea's".Anyone else remember her "Stay at home and bake cookies and have tea's" bullcrap from earlier campaign's?

Lies come easy to her and bill and without a doubt all who follow them as religious leaders that they are.

Surely now, you and Jeff do not dispute the key pacification role played by the Missus Clinton after The Bill the Bimbos had taken? I think it most just to claim that The Missus Clinton played a large role in many of Mr. Bill's Piece Processes. By the bye, I cannot wait to see The Missus Clinton's health records.

It is quite conceivable, is it not, that after The Bill The Bimbos had taken, said Bimbos left behind certain mementos venereally pathogenic in nature? Vanderbilt Hospital knows all but releases nothing on the Clintons.
