You know, if I was going to respond to allegations that I've exaggerated my role in foreign and domestic policies AND I had just been caught exaggerating the level of danger involved in a certain state visit, I don't think I'd choose to say:


"I say a lot of things -- millions of words a day -- so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement,"

That just doesn't seem to be the right tone to take when being accused of exaggerating...

I have to say though, WTF Hillary? I know the republicans had it out for her, but did she come under actual sniper fire so often, as first lady, that she can't remember which state visits involved running for her life and which didn't?

Not to mention that her campaign's response to Sinbad's comments about how dangerous the trip was (or more accurately wasn't) really came off as excessively condescending. So, let's see. She lies, then has her people smear and belittle someone who was there and calls her on it, then she claims that she merely misspoke?

No. That wasn't a misstatement. That was a lie. Which isn't all that shocking from a politician, but I do expect my elected officials to have some competence in that field. For a politician of your "experience" lying so badly over something so stupid is inexcusable.

Lying about things where there is video clearly contradicting the lie is just stupid. Maintaining the lie after the video has been brought to light is bush-administration stupid.
