Oh What Tangled Webs We Weave...

"Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who deal faithfully are His delight." Proverbs 12:22

If there is a legacy left to all Americans from the Clinton Presidency it is that the word "lying" and "Clinton" are synonymous.

Chelsea Clinton--stumping for her mother--was asked recently about Hillary's accusation that Bill's obscene conduct with Ms. Lewinsky was untrue and the product of a "vast right wing conspiracy."

Chelsea responded, "Wow, you're the first person actually that's ever asked me that question in the, I don't know maybe, 70 college campuses I've now been to, and I do not think that is any of your business."

Chelsea's response would have been defensible if it was asked her of private-citizen Hillary Clinton but it wasn't. It was asked concerning Presidential-candidate Hillary Clinton who made the statement--publicly--in defense of her sleazy husband.

That puts the question in an entirely different light and makes it everyone's business. The Hillary that gave the ludicrous answer about a vast right wing conspiracy is the same Hillary desiring to be the chief communicator/answer-giver for every American.

Her public comments as first lady are fair game and appropriate to dissect. After all it is by Hillary's own insistence, that it was as "first lady" where she obtained all her wonderful "experience" to be President. If Chelsea is big enough to be on the campaign trail for her mother, she needs to be big enough to answer relevant questions even if they are uncomfortable.

But Hillary's veracity has always been a problem. Currently she was caught lying--no other words for it--even though her words have been "I misspoke" "I was mistaken," "I was sleep deprived" when relating details about a trip to Bosnia as first lady where she supposedly had come under fire from snipers and had to run to waiting vehicles instead of having a reception on the airfield. Furthermore she insisted her plane had to fly evasive maneuvers to land safely.

Thanks to video tapes, Hillary was caught red handed--or should I say, red-faced. Not only were there no snipers, she had a lolly-gagging reception on the tarmac where she landed and Colonel William Changose, the pilot who flew her plane, said, "Not only were there no bullets flying around, there was no bumblebee flying around."

What you see and what you hear--is what you get. Nuff said.
