I mean, can you imagine if Hillary Clinton were a Republican?
With her character flaws and penchant for lying at every turn, the media would have crucified her long ago. Lucky for her, she’s a true blue Democrat and she’s got nothing to worry about when it comes to handling the media.
The woman is running for President and hasn’t done any major interviews and no one in the media seems to care at all!
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders, Lincoln Chafee and every GOP candidate have been bouncing from channel to channel, newspaper to magazine and all over the Internet in an effort to get the word out and make the media happy. It’s almost as if Hillary isn’t even running for office!
Chafee has been in the race for a couple of weeks now, and he’s already done more Sunday morning shows and more local interviews than Hillary Clinton has over the last 3 or 4 months! It’s maddening.
Brit Hume at Fox News pointed out this lucky turn of fate for Hillary while discussing her history of “wrestling” with the truth.
Nearly 20 years ago, the late columnist William Safire of The New York Times described Hillary Clinton as a “congenital liar.” The list of her whoppers was long then and it has been growing ever since…
With such a record of mendacity, and there are numerous other examples, one thing is clear, it’s a good thing for Hillary Clinton that she’s not a Republican.
Nearly 20 years ago, the late columnist William Safire of The New York Times described Hillary Clinton as a “congenital liar.” The list of her whoppers was long then and it has been growing ever since. She claimed that as a novice investor in Arkansas she made a 10,000% killing trading cattle futures by reading The Wall Street Journal. Something one observer said was akin to “driving to Hawaii.”
She said she came under sniper fire in Bosnia in 1996. She didn’t.
She said her daughter was jogging around the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001. She wasn’t.
She even once claimed that she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary after he became the first man to climb Mount Everest. But that didn’t happen until five years after she was born.
More recently she claimed she’d turned over all her job-related e-mails from her days as Secretary of State. But more work-related e-mails have since turned turned up that the State Department didn’t have. And she claimed the notorious Sidney Blumenthal was just an old friend with whom she kept in touch and who sent her unsolicited e-mails. Turns out as we’ve heard she was reaching out to him in the dark of night during the first year of the Obama administration and her e-mails make clear she welcomed and encouraged his advice. With such a record of mendacity, and there are numerous other examples, one thing is clear, it’s a good thing for Hillary Clinton that she’s not a Republican.
