If I lied through my teeth to the families of those killed in Benghazi, if I lied to them at the funeral of their loved ones? If I lied before that and if I’m still lying with my pants suit on fire? What. difference. does. it. make, Senator?
Some say this time is different. This time she’s jumped the shark. This time she’s going to be held to account for her screeching at those who attempt to uncover the truth from her constant lying. This time her congenital lying is going to bring her down.
Well, it won’t be the Democrat party that will bring her down, that’s for sure. She been a good soldier and they love her. Or they think they owe her. Or something. Nobody should think they are going to throw her under the bus, though. Ain’t going to happen.
Here’s what might happen. Some Democrats see her as vulnerable in the 2016 Democrat primary and may be encouraged to oppose her. Joe Biden and John Kerry, to name just two. She’ll be furious. How dare they. She had it stolen from her in 2008 by the pip squeak from nowhere, Barack Obama. If that happens in 2016, by some lightweight like Biden or Kerry, OMG, it could get bloody.
There are other sources of trouble for her, from the general public who may finally be getting weary of carrying water for such a “congenital liar,” as she was labeled by William Safire in the New York Times, no less, back on January 8, 1996 in an essay titled, “Blizzard of Lies.” It’s worth taking a look at what he said then:
Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar.
Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit…
Therefore, ask not “Why didn’t she just come clean at the beginning?” She had good reasons to lie; she is in the longtime habit of lying; and she has never been called to account for lying herself or in suborning lying in her aides and friends.
She hasn’t changed. After all these years, as well as all the years before, she’s was and remains a pathological liar. Only a complete fool could think her fit to be president of the United States, and that’s a job that doesn’t seem to demand a lot in the way of experience or competence or even integrity.
I guess that’s why my 94-year old mother in law who doesn’t follow politics much at all calls her a tramp.
