The Clintons simply can’t get their stories straight!
Former President Bill Clinton revived the Hillary Clinton sniper fire scandal yesterday when he attempted to defend his wife’s mistake. Senator Clinton had twice told reporters and supporters that she had to duck sniper fire during a 1996 trip to Bosnia. Though that debate had largely quieted down, Mr. Clinton felt the need yesterday to readdress the matter – and misspeak himself:
You know, I got tickled the other day. A lot of the way this whole campaign has been covered has amused me. But there was a lot of fulminating because Hillary, one time late at night when she was exhausted, misstated – and immediately apologized for it – what happened to her in Bosnia in 1995.
Hillary Clinton’s Bosnia trip took place in 1996, by the way. While that’s a simple enough mistake, Mr. Clinton also stretched the truth when he blamed his wife’s mistake on the time: “…You woulda thought, you know, that she’d robbed a bank the way they carried on about this. And some of them, when they’re 60, they’ll forget something when they’re tired at 11 at night, too.” Mrs. Clinton’s first Bosnia remark came at around 10:30 in the morning and the second just before four in the afternoon. He also intimated that his wife apologized for her gaffe, but she did not.
For her part, Senator Clinton attempted to distance herself from her husband’s remarks. Her campaign issued a statement thanking President Clinton for his support, but said that the Bosnia remarks were a mistake and the candidate takes full responsibility for the matter.
Now, we understand people mistakes. It happens. We’re human. But, as we’ve pointed out, the Clinton campaign’s long list of goofs make us wonder exactly how honest Hillary would be – or could be – if she wins the presidency.
I’ve been fairly undecided as to which of the candidates to support because they are both appear far more right wing than the country needs. It’s really clear though that a major point of difference between Clinton and Obama is that she is pretty consistently devious about most things, whereas he is straighforward.
The Clintons are liars. That’s nothing new.
OMG! Obama has been lying and being devious throughout this whole campaign.
The more Bill tries to defend Hillary, the more his trailer trash roots come out. He really should try to emulate Jimmy Carter and get back to being a Statesman as opposed to a political hack. It really is distasteful.
I wish the CLintons would get somewhere and sit down, and shut up.
I don’t think racial or cultural comments about a former president (or anyone, for that matter) are appropriate, i.e. “trailer trash.” But, of course, its OK because such invictive is being directed at a member of the “oppressor” race. Pure ignorance.
My comments have nothing do with race or culture in the context of Bill Clinton. Remember, he was America’s first black president! My comments have to do with class, and in the case, Bill Clinton’s lack thereof. If anyone has besmirched the dignity that should come with a former president, its not my words but his.
I agree with Carlos, he and Hillary would be better off if Bill went somewhere and shut the hell up. Although, I am somewhat more vulgar than Carlos today….its Friday and I want to go have a stiff one…with a cocktail.
I thought Hillary was supposed to have this slick. flawless machine behind her. She was the candidate that was supposed to be ready to fight FOX and the GOP. I’m surprised at how many times her campaign has had these painful moments. I’m more surprised at how much of the damage is coming from Bill. I never fully liked the guy, and thought he was more charismatic than effective. But lately, even the charisma is starting to fade.
Bill has even been called by the Democratic party on his unstatesman like behavior. Of course that is asking a lot from someone under the guise of being a Democrate, did everything, by deception to destroy a regulated economy with protections for people.
With him always blabing, Ms. Clinton, has all kinds of time to hold meaningless interviews, since he’s destroying her chances single handedly.
The reality of this sideshow is just to take attention from the new Trade agreement with the right wing government of Colombia in which Hillarys main strategist is the Dictators main advisor and many of Bills staff are joining private industry.Walmart etc. in sucking up tousands more American jobs. It is pretty embarassing for the sweet little gal because the goverment has had to kill all of the union acivists etc to make the deal realy sweet for Bush, Bill, and the good ol boys.
I wouldn’t shy away from calling them rednecks at least. Born again “trailer trash” is just more poetic.
Thank you for clarifying your position and the meaning of your words, Ishmael. Before leaving to have your cocktail this evening, don’t forget to tell the ghetto I said, “hello.”
Oh, now, don’t go getting your panties in a bunch…that comment wasn’t about race or culture…it was about “class”…of which someone who calls a former president “trailer trash” has none.
Both are lying and disceiving us all.
Mrs. Clinton is by far the lesser of two evils for many reasons not least of which there is no danger of her focusing exclusivley on race issues, she run the country before (we all know she did) and did a good job imho.
I would rather her than a republican any day, this time we need a democratic “bush” to run things 🙂
Abracadaver, judging from your comments directed at me, it appears I have offended your delicate sensibilities. But this discussion has nothing to do with you or me. This is about who we should vote for the next president…Hillary or Obama (or McCrazy if you are McLoopy).
From any objective measure, the Clinton campaign is a disaster…and Bill’s “foot-in-mouth” comments are making the mess worse and tarnishing his own stature.
But I can’t change how you feel, all I can say is take a Midol and as the great orator Bill Clinton says, “chill out.”
Ishmael: “I feel your pain.” Its not easy being read for filth, I know. Take it like a man (or is that an oxymoron in your case?).
It does happen once in a while, that the Clintons are again lying about facts. But they are right there to attempt to cover them up if possible. And will give every excuse in the Book to try to do it. It seems with them, that it is very difficult to tell the truth. And we saw that when he resided in the White House for 8 (Eight)
DO WE REALLY NEED MORE OF THEM ONCE AGAIN????????
MY God what will she come up with if she is exhausted and gets a phone call at three in the morning…..they are a mess and both deserve each other.
Sure is a strange picture of Bill Clinton. He
looks much younger and has more weight in his
face than he has in several years.
And anybody who remembers this trip, will remember that everybody was concerned that she
would go into this place.
As many people had lost their lives in that area,
it had to be a high security trip.
WHY can’t we stick to the real issues of this
campaign? Trailer Park Trash, someone has said.
Sorry buddy, you don’t know of which you speak!!!
People should show some pity for Bill. He has untreated syphilis and he is loosing his mind!
I wish Obama would go back to his slums he and Rezko created and stop breaking up the party. He obviously doesn’t care about the voters offering nothing in the way of making two states votes count after funding was procurred to pay for another primary.
His racist ties that go back 20 years and the churchs newsletters and he claims innocence but yet then claims he knew in his glowing speech. Lies..
Calling Pennsylvanians bitter (Cause he cant win them over) calling his grandmother a “typical white person” his wife never proud of this country until her husband comes along. Racist from head to tail both of them.
I wont fall for the empty windbag change of promise I will go with someone who has a proven track record HILLARY, and we get Bill to boot Yay!
Funny the media is so in love with Obama they hide the fact he did drugs and had a gay sexual enocunter.
Obamas *GayGate* http://www.savagepolitics.com
Wow. Quite an eye opener!
Michelle Obamaâ€™s Writings Display Disturbing Racism.
Americans must ask: â€˜Do we really want this woman in the White Houseâ€™?
Why would anyone believe what Bill Clinton has to say about lying? That’s an area where he has no credibility. He should just shut up. He’s not helping Hillary.
I’m beginning to believe President Clinton is doing all of this on purpose. His antics reek of passive agression. This guy was a rhodes scholar who experience in campaigning spans years. You can only blame other people so much until you have to think about what you’re doing that’s wrong.
I love how she had to exaggerate the Bosnia trip to prove she’s “been there” and ‘done that.” So, in all her 35 years of experience that’s the best she’s got. Another thing, if you think the stuff we hear about Obama is bad, you should probably learn more about some of our greatest presidents. Trust me, if they had the mass media we have today 40 years ago our history would be much different.
Wonder what’s going to happen when Hilary and Bill (as a witness) appear before court, in the Peter Paul case against Hilary, in a month or two. Will they tell the truth? What if she is found guilty?
I hate liars!

i am SO SICK of this election. honestly, i don’t know how much more of this i can take.
Excuse me Liberalist,
Obama breaking up the party???? Maybe for white gays. But trust me on this. Hillary has a nice gift coming to her from her if she is the nominee. She canâ€™t unify cats and dogs. Her ass is just much as a liar than Obama if that be the case.
So unfortunately some of the Hilz supporters probably wouldnâ€™t vote for a Black for President if they offered them a million dollars. But it’s all good.
Clinton-Ultra right wing group â€œThe Familyâ€
Clinton- Vince Foster was fucking him and he decided to commit suicide not to dish the dirt on him and Hilz.
Obama- Sinclair. Sinclair lied to say him Obama had an affair. Just over the weekend on a Puerto Rican TV interview. It was determined he lied.
Come on now!
My whole thing is this here. We all have a right to vote for who we want. But some of the utter ugliness and old ass angry issues (McClurkin,Wright,Meeks) Please find new ones against Obama is the very reason the LGBT community won’t get shit and shouldn’t if you’re going to be bias against me for reasons of color. Why would I want you to have equality? And the sad thing about that. It’s always the BAD APPLES that spoils it for the whole bunch! Because on the large scale the community does not really share these bias feelings
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”
And as far as PA being bitter. That shit is true as it is in most small town in states in the U.S.
1. No work
2. Jeopardy of losing your home
3. Illegal immigrants over populated your town and getting services you’re entitled to but are not receiving.
4. The Pres saying “Outsourcing is good for America”
5. High Gas prices with very little money to pay for it
YOU DAMN RIGHT BITTER IT IS! Or should they be resilient like Hillary says in the midst of trying times? Thatâ€™s a joke. Maybe she pass over some that 109,000,000 she made theyâ€™d be resilient then!
