    Hillary clinton exaggerates

    Or should that be, tells a great big monica lewinsky sized porkie...

    re being greeted by 'sniper fire' and running for safety when landing at a bosnia airport during the conflict.....when infact the film of her arrival depicted a very different scenario.

    The whole thing conjures up a really amusing image in my head, plus she used a term that was probably greeted with applause by new labour spin doctors. She didn't lie or embellish.........no she actually misspoke or was guilty of 'misspeaking'. Brilliant.

    I'm just waiting for someone in the british media to describe her as 'something of a walter mittie character'. You know how someone in politics and polictical reporting likes to wheel that phrase out every now and again. LOL

    Actually, you may be interested to know that some of the spin doctors who worked on the labour coup in '97 are working for various candidates in the US...

    I love the way she just turned around and said, "ohh well I made a mistake everyone can make mistakes". Excuse me, you mistook a friendly welcome an easy meeting with being fired upon and running for your life? Thats a tad more than a mistake. & you still think you are fit to run America? Can you imagine it? "Damn those Frenchies, I landed and they tried to blow me up, nuke them....... what do you mean it was quiet and peaceful? Whoops"

    She's now something like 10 points behind in the polls, which is the largest gap so far. People don't like liars. Or at least, they don't like electing those who lie before elections.

    I don't particularly like any polictician, whether in our politics or us politics.

    and i don't buy this idea that Barack obama is this saviour for all of the USA's social and economic ills. Nor that he can bring peace in the middle east and find a cure for AIDS.

    But of the brief glimpses i've seen of both talking, Obama defnitely comes across as the more genuine and dare i say it normal. Seeing Hillary on TV and at rally's....it's almost as if shes setting on the couch next to Oprah. She has to try and reach out to the viewers and audience in this really false OTT way.

    sure, obama, has a penchant for the dramatic....and i'm sure his speecwriters are trying deperately hard not to quote martin luther king - Obama's camp definitely pitching him as the revolutionary political figure, which he just isn't. But Hillary is way OTT and totally fake.

    1st time round, as I said. But he was RE-ELECTED, for a second term, despite the fraud 1st time.
