WASHINGTON - Why wasn't the truth good enough for Hillary Rodham Clinton?
"I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia and ... there was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn't go, so send the first lady. That's where we went. I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."
Hogwash. The truth is:
• There was no sniper fire.
• Nobody ducked for cover.
• Bad weather, not security concerns, kept her husband from making the same trip a few months earlier.
What is this? She's been lying about this right up to very recent times. She's been caught boldfaced. Of course, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and the rest of Bush's cabinet have also been caught, but nothing has happened. They haven't been impeached. Lying just doesn't disqualify anyone from the highest office, does it.
Do you think John McCain is squeaky clean? He's been mighty careful in many respects. What most people don't realize is that he really is Teddy Roosevelt-like. He's a progressive in wolves' clothing while he runs for the Republican anti-progressive base. He's also an ardent imperialist, which is his biggest Achilles' heel. He's super violent and power hungry while believing it's morally justified.
Beware the Great White Hunter. He will want to bag huge game to go down in history above others of his same spirit. Killing is his game. It's a sport to him. For the imperialist hunter, people are fair game, as are whole nations.
Think before you support anyone to lead anything.
