UPDATE: 03-24-08 HILLARY EXPOSED ON TELEVISION
Unfortunately for Hillary Clinton, some of the tape of that "harrowing" visit has surfaced and you can judge for yourself just how much danger Hillary, Chelsea, Sinbad, Cheryl Crowe and others actually faced.
As with everything Hillary Clinton, she spins the story to fit he occasion. The question here is did Hillary overstate the danger in a celebrity-filled jaunt or did she actually risk Chelsea's life with a poor decision to include her on a government publicity junket?
According to Newsday.com...
"Hillary says she risked life on White House trips"
"VINTON, Iowa - Ever since Barack Obama suggested Hillary Clinton's eight years as first lady were a glorified tea party a few days back, she's looked for an opening to strike back.
On Saturday night in Dubuque she pounced, arguing she risked her life on White House missions in the 1990s, including a hair-raising flight into Bosnia that ended in a "corkscrew" landing and a sprint off the tarmac to dodge snipers."
"I don't remember anyone offering me tea," she quipped.
There she goes again with that "faulty memory" thing. Is it any wonder that the missing Rose Law Firm billing records were actually discovered in the White House long after they would have been useful to the prosecution?
"In January 1996, a long sought-after copy of billing records from the Rose Law Finn were identified and turned over to prosecutors by Carolyn Huber, a White House assistant to Hillary Rodham Clinton. Ms. Huber, herself a former Rose Law Firm employee, recognized the records and realized that they had been among papers that she had removed six months earlier from the First Lady's book room on the third floor of the White House."
"The mysterious appearance of the billing records, which had been the specific subject of various investigative subpoenas for two years, sparked intense interest about how they surfaced and where they had been. Shortly after the discovery of the records, Hillary Clinton made history -- she became the only First Lady ever called to testify before a Grand Jury inquiry."
"The dictum around the Oval Office in the '90s, she added, was: "If a place was too dangerous, too poor or too small, send the first lady."
And I erroneously thought that the "dick around the oval office" tried to insure that the first lady was somewhere in another country; far, far away from the real "action." (This is either a cheap shot or a bad joke, I just can't decide which)
How extraordinarily dangerous was that trip?
"It turns out that Clinton wasn't quite flying solo into harm's way that day."
"She was, in fact, leading a goodwill entourage that included baggy-pants funnyman Sinbad, singer Sheryl Crow and Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, then 15, according to an account of the March 1995 trip in her autobiography 'Living History.'"
"As the plane approached the runway, the pilot ordered the Clintons into the armored front of the plane, Clinton writes. What's not clear is whether Sinbad or Crow were invited to the cockpit or had to brave it out in the unprotected rear."
In her own words, Hillary was on an unnecessary (at least for the First Lady) media junket. With Cheryl Crow and Sinbad aboard, I cannot imagine the troops being highly entertained with the wit and wisdom of Hillary's far-left patter.
What can YOU do?
Take everything Hillary Clinton says with a grain of salt, secure in the knowledge that if you don't like today's story, it will be changed in a later edition as interpreted by her ever-faithful minions.
Can you really honestly and seriously vote for a person who is so ethically challenged or who would return another four years of chaos, corruption -- and possibly philandering -- to the White House?
We are getting close to crunch time with the February primaries fast approaching. It is now time to actually pay attention and consider voting beyond party lines to someone who can united American and move forward with the defense of the United States from enemies both foreign and domestic.
Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for personal power, prestige or profits.
