There is a disturbing pattern with the Hillary Clinton campaign when it comes to, as the media calls it, exagerations. I call them lies.
We have heard the lie about Tuzla:

The lie that she was against NAFTA

Irish Peace?
"I don’t know there was much she did apart from accompanying Bill [Clinton] going around," he said. Her recent statements about being deeply involved were merely "the sort of thing people put in their canvassing leaflets" during elections. "She visited when things were happening, saw what was going on, she can certainly say it was part of her experience. I don’t want to rain on the thing for her but being a cheerleader for something is slightly different from being a principal player."

Mrs Clinton has made Northern Ireland key to her claims of having extensive foreign policy experience, which helped her defeat Barack Obama in Ohio and Texas on Tuesday after she presented herself as being ready to tackle foreign policy crises at 3am.

And the latest? Health care:

I know I sound a bit like a harpy when I, ahem, harp on, Clinton, but haven't we had enough exagerations from our current President to allow someone that so cleary finds it so easy, so like breathing, to lie? We need somenone that will tell us the truth. Someone that will treat the American people like adults. Hillary Clinton shows that she doesn't trust the American public to handle the truth - just like George Bush treats the public. Barack Obama has shown time and time again that he thinks the public can handle the truth.
Now all politicians exagerate. I include Obama. The difference is Clinton lies. Her exagerations are so large, so profound, one has to wonder how she will handle herslf if she were to become President. I'm reminded of what Bill Clinton said when he was running for President, "You do what you gotta do". It seems Hillary is carrying the torch for the Bill by doing what she feels she's gotta do. And what she's gotta do is lie, evidently.
