Now that Hillary Clinton has been nailed in an outright fabrication of her role in Bosnia, it is time to remind ourselves of another, even more galling fantasy that Hillary tried to sell the voters.
After 9/11, Hillary had a problem. New Yorkers were desperately focused on their own needs for protection and they were saddled with a Senator who was not one of them -- an Arkansasn or was it a Chicagoan?
Interviewed on the "Today" show one week after 9/11, she spun an elaborate yarn. The kindest thing we could say was that it was a fantasy. Or a fabrication.
She said that Chelsea was jogging around the World Trade Center on 9/11 and happened to duck into a coffee shop when the airplanes hit. She said that this move saved Chelsea's life. But Chelsea told Talk magazine that she was in a friend's apartment four miles from ground zero when the first plane hit. Her friend called her, waking her up, and told her to turn on the TV. On television, she saw the second plane hit, disproving Hillary's claim that "she heard the plane hit. She heard it. She did."
So why did Hillary make up the story about Chelsea? Most likely to was because her co-senator (and implicit rival for the voter's affection), a real New Yorker Chuck Schumer spoke of his daughter, who attended Stuyvesant High School (Dick's alma mater) located next to the TRade Center, being at real risk on 9/11. Hillary needed to make herself part of the scene.
She invented the entire story on national television, the "Today" show, and didn't blink an eye.
Her fabrication on the "Today" show was no unique foray. It is her standard M.O.. It gives us pause in evaluating all of her stories and calls into question her entire credibility.
The 1,000 pound gorilla in all these stories is the lame ass irresponsible media nearly two decades of malfeasance which allowed Clinton to believe they could get away unchecked.
The only reason a democrat would care about this is because they are backing the other liar...
you have got to be kidding me.
Hillary doesn't make "misstatements" as she claims. She just flat out makes fecal matter up.
My 13 year old son told me a Hillary joke. I told him it was a good joke but he looked at me in surprise and said, ‘it’s not a joke!’
He asked me if I knew how to tell if Hillary was lying. I asked how and he said, ‘You can tell she is lying if her mouth is moving.’
Next we’ll hear how Hillary was helping to pick through the rubble to rescue the brave NYFD, all the while using her cell phone to help find food for starving orphans in Bosnia. And simultaneously writing a book that will surely receive the Nobel.
The rules don’t apply to you?
Well they allow Oprah to get away with murder.. Well not murder murder.. Only Hillary can get away with that.. Will Wright be a millstone around Oprahs neck?.. NAH!.. the media will spike anything about Oprah..
You’ve got to work global warming and the Irish peace process in there, too.
I believe she, probably more than Bill, tried to destroy the livelihoods, reputation, or worse, of many, many people throughout the last twenty years, all when the depraved and probably criminal behavior was overwhelminngly her "husband's" doing.
Time and again, Hillary has proved that such awaits any of us who seriously cross Bill or Hillary at the hands of the Clinton Crime family members like Pelicano, The Forehead, Steppenalloverus, Pakistani Lanny, Bernie Nussbaum, Sid "Vicious" Blumenthal, Carville, Kendall or at least a dozen others.
“She needed to make herself part of the scene”
This says it all, IMO.
When will James Carville quit drinking the Kool Aid and tell all on billary???
Old news Mr. Morris. But thanks for the reminder.
I remember somebody saying a while back that in some respects the media's bias towards conservatives has some benefits for Republicans. Republicans don't get away with much and are forced to abandon those who say and do stupid things. Liberals, on the other hand, get away with so much that the Democrat party is filled with people who have mountains of stupid or scandalous skeletons in their closets. I think this situation may prove the point. A Republican who made mistakes like this wouldn't have lasted this long.
Get it right Paul B is The Fivehead, heck, closer to a Sixhead
