Hillary Clinton is telling her husband to back off from making comments about her trip to Bosnia after he blundered several facts when defending the trip yesterday.
Hillary called me and said I misstated it, you misstated it." President Clinton said. Shes right, I wasnt there, I dont remember the facts either. He said ultimately his wife told him, you werent there, let me handle it, to which Clinton says he replied, yes, maam.
At an event in Boonville, Ind., yesterday, the former president said that the media blew up the story of Clintons visit to Bosnia in 1996. He claimed his wife made the comments that she avoided sniper fire and canceled a welcoming ceremony - which were later disproved by CBS News video of the event were comments she made late at night while sleep deprived and that she had apologized.
In fact, she made the statements around 9 a.m. in a prepared speech on March 17th, and later repeated them at a press conference that followed. She claimed to have misspoke, but never actually apologized for the comments.
Asked if he was going to bring up the event while campaigning in the future, Mr. Clinton said he would not. But I think I talk about at every stage what she did for the troops, he added.
Clinton went on to say his wife had a real record for supporting troops in combat and veterans of war.
President Clinton was visiting the site of the Clinton headquarters in Terre Haute, which burned down in a fire yesterday. Two workers at the campaign office escaped without injury.
When asked if it was a bad sign, Clinton said, No, I think it might be a good omen. Were rising from the ashes like a phoenix.
Hey look! Another thread on Billary’s lie!
(Seriesly though. I don’t care if there are 10-15 threads along these lines. And if 5-6 are locked. This is good stuff!)
Before this is over, Alley Cat Bill will get more than one ashtray up side the head.
Bill grabbed a shovel and jumped into the Bosnian hole Hillary stopped digging.
I still, as I thought a year ago, don’t think Bill WANTS Hillary to be President.
what a cheap phony stunt ! there is NO bottom for these idiots
Bill Clinton should retire and be chairman of some Save the Polar Bear committee which he could do from home and never have to go out anymore.
“Hillary called me and said I misstated it, you misstated it.” President Clinton said. Shes right, I wasnt there, I dont remember the facts either. He said ultimately his wife told him, you werent there, let me handle it, to which Clinton says he replied, yes, maam.”
This is too good....two liars trying to outlie the other one.
What a couple of clowns!
“...Shes right, I wasnt there...”
In fact wasn’t he with Monica during some part of Hillary’s trip???
OK whose campaign head will roll on this one???
Apparently getting rid of Mark Penn did not stop the campaign bumbling.
this juvenile crap is like watching kids running for class president in 10th grade.
Isn’t it great? Everything, EVERYTHING that comes out of their mouths are lies. What a pair.
I hate to be the barer of bad news, but the Wicked Witch is not quite dead yet.
“this juvenile crap is like watching kids running for class president in 10th grade. “
I was just thinking the same thing...teenage kids running for class president run the same sort of campaign.
The priggish snooty girl trying to run against a popular but clueless boy.
Both of them using exaggeration and outright fabrication - relying on slogans because in actuality no one knows what the heck they are going to do once they win.
