Not only does Ms. Hillary surround herself with disingenuous spokesmen and dishonest supporters, but she herself has long had a problem of being straight with the American people. One-time (Bill) Clinton supporter David Geffen observed, “everybody in politics lies, but [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling.”
With a recent poll finding that a majority of Americans believe Mrs. Clinton to be neither honest nor trustworthy, it’s no wonder the media are highlighting her latest “embellishment” of the facts, claiming she had landed in Bosnia under sniper fire when in fact she hadn’t.
And other pundits have disposed of additional Clinton lies. While she claimed on February 26 that she had “been a critic of NAFTA from the beginning,” the release of White House documents earlier this month showed that she had tirelessly worked to pass this job-creating measure (Via Instapundit).
So, the revelation that Hillary misrepresented what happened when she went to Bosnia is just the latest exposure of her mendacity.
I wonder if she had been so mendacious before she met Bill or if it was something she picked up in the course of their partnership. Maybe aware of his superior political skills and seeing his repeated victories, she concluded that duplicity was a defining spect of political success.
UPDATE (on 03/28): Â Yahoo! may be biased on Iraq, but, just like this blog, its editors all find Ms. Hillary has, what they call, a “credibility gap.”
