Hillary’s lies about Tuzla, her lies about NAFTA, and her unwillingness to release her tax forms (she is terrified what is going to happen when the blue-collar workers she is courting see the money Bill has been raking in on the speaking circuit) while attacking Obama for not releasing his is getting her past statements a little long overdue attention from the press:
In light of Tuzla-gate (catchy, no?), reporters are going over past statements by Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, (and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois) to see if others don’t stand more rigorous examination.
One that may get renewed scrutiny is a story she told “Women in Military Service” in 1994 — that shortly after the end of the Vietnam war, she looked into joining the Marines.
In June 1994, Clinton told an organization trying to build a memorial for women who had served in the armed forces, that while living in Fayetteville, Arkansas, in 1975, “I decided that I was very interested in having some experience in serving in some capacity in the military. So I walked into our local recruiting office…”
Don’t worry, Hillaryis44 readers. We have been told she is the most vetted candidate EVER and, after all, she is ready to be CinC from day one, so this should be no big deal. I am sure all her past statements will check out.
*** Update ***
I should probably add that I think this is a completely stupid non-issue. I am just going to enjoy watching the Clinton team deal with all this little crap the press kicks up. Especially after how she and her scummy campaign team have conducted themselves in regards to Obama. So hey, just chalk this up to schadenfreude for me.
