Bill Clinton Retells Hillary's 1996 Bosnia Story

April 10, 2008 7:10 PM

ABC News' Sarah Amos and Eloise Harper Report: After a trip to Puerto Rico and two days entirely off the campaign trail, former President Bill Clinton eagerly discussed myriad topics with the crowd that awaited him in Boonville, Ind., and what he said of a trip his wife made to Bosnia in 1996 seemed a bit misleading.

"I am so glad to be here. And I'm glad that Indiana is gonna have a say in who the nominee of the Democratic Party is and the next president of the United States," began Clinton, adding, "but I don't want much to talk about politics today. I want to take a few moments to say, first, I am grateful to be here. I love coming to places that don't normally see presidents, don't normally see presidential campaigns. The backbone, and the heartbeat of America -- places like Boonville."

Clinton then spent and hour going over a series of subjects that argued why Hillary would be the best choice for the Democratic Party. While the majority of his speech was heavy on policy and ideas, Clinton did find occasion to wander off topic a few times.

One such subject that caused the former president to meander was his wife's disputed account of her trip to Bosnia as first lady. It is a subject that has gotten plenty of media attention, but has been kept out of President's Clinton's speeches. Today, as Clinton explained Hillary's dedication to taking care of U.S. veterans, he told the crowd how amused the whole controversy made him.

"A lot of the way this whole campaign has been covered has amused me," he said.

Bill Clinton voice: “You see, Hillary isn’t nearly as experienced as I am telling lies, and I feel her pain. (Bites lip) The truth is, uh, she did not have sniper relations with that country, Serbia.”

"But there was a lot of fulminating because Hillary, one time late at night when she was exhausted, misstated and immediately apologized for it,

They just can't help themselves. They seriously do not know fact from reality.

I told someone this morning that I was in a terrible car accident a few years ago and had to have an arm and a leg cut off. He told me I wasn’t missing any limbs. Oh, I must have forgot that I didn’t actually get in a car accident at all. I guess I am getting old. But damn, I would make a great president even though my memory is shot.

And I think she was the first first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt to go into a combat zone.

Wrong-o Clintigula. See Pat Nixon, South Vietnam, July 1969.

And some of them when they're 60 they'll forget something when they're tired at 11:00 at night, too."

What a dumb ass thing to say. Besides the fact that we know she made the remark numerous times @ numerous times of day, he makes it sound like she cant handle the rigors of a campaign, which means she can never handle that 3:00 am phone call.

He probably received an ash tray upside the head after this appearance.

LANDING ON A JET PLANE
Tune: "Leaving on a Jet Plane" Original

All the odds are stacked, I'm ready to run
I'm standin' here, holdin' my gun
I hate to call you up to say goodbye
But the battle's ragin', I hear the sounds
The tank is waitin', he's shootin' some rounds
I know there's so much danger I could die

So send me to Bosnia
Tell me they'll be bombin' us
Sniper fire will never get me down
I'm landin' on a jet plane
I don't know if I'll be back again
Oh, Bill, we're on the ground

There's so many shots, it takes my breath
So many times I've cheated death
I tell you now, we just lost a wing
Every combat zone, I pay my dues
Every mission flown is stuff I'll use
Some day I'll throw my pantsuit in the ring

So send me to Bosnia
Tell me they'll be bombin' us
Sniper fire will never get me down
I'm landin' on a jet plane
I don't know if I'll be back again
Oh, Bill, we're on the ground

Now the time has come for battle
My future's not as bright as cattle
I'll close my eyes, while the cannons boom
I'll dream about the campaign trail
When I can tell my wartime tale
About the time I faced death and doom

So send me to Bosnia
Tell me they'll be bombin' us
Sniper fire will never get me down
I'm landin' on a jet plane
I don't know if I'll be back again
Oh, Bill, we're on the ground

When something truly happens and you forget about it, that’s mistaken. When you remember something that didn’t happen, that’s delusional.

Hey Bill, how will they handle that phone call at 3:00 in the morning at age 65, when they can't even handle a speech at 11:00 at night when they're 60.

Shameless. The pilot has already gone on record that it never happened.

LOL!! I can just picture the lip biting! Or when Ron Brown was killed and Slick was leaving the funeral service, laughing and cutting up until he noticed a news camera was focused on him. Switched in a heartbeat to that poor sad face and pretending to wipe a tear from his eye! Liar then and he’s a liar now. No, they never change.

“They seriously do not know fact from reality.”

BS, it’s more like the quote in your tagline. They know the facts, they just don’t care. They’re just like Prvada, Bagdaghd Bob, and Goebels - they know they can bullsh*t a large enough number of the sheep to get away with it.

“Bush lied” by saying what Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, Kerry, and Edwards said.

If people were gullible enough to think exhaustion caused Hillary to lie, the next question should be “what happens if you’re exhausted by the rigors of the presidency and confuse reality then?” I imagine a 3AM call could be disorienting for her as well.

I was thinking the same thing. Either that or cocaine.
