DOES VIDEO EVIDENCE ON YOUTUBE INDICATE 'FIRST LADY' CLINTON MIGHT HAVE BEEN CHANNELING ELEANOR ROOSEVELT AGAIN?

This is just too rich!

Remember awhile back when I wrote about how Sen. Hillary Clinton exaggerates lies a lot, like when she claimed to be named after the explorer who climbed Mount Everest (only years before he climbed it), was inspired to serve her country by the first Apollo mission in elementary school (only she was in college) and most importantly, how she flew into battle torn Bosnia, darted from the plane across the landing strip dodging sniper bullets, etc.

She has been claiming all kinds of experience in international relations and foreign affairs, helping end the fighting in Ireland, brokering peace treaties, etc. Well, after the first batch of White House documents came out this week, it was hard to find anything more dangerous than serving tea to the wives of heads of state and visiting schools and museums which, as I've been told, can be very scary places to be.

But the Bosnia story. The Internet and YouTube have done it again. Here is a video of the First Lady's arrival in Bosnia on that fateful day on March 25, 1996.

Wow! If you think Hillary was brave, just think about that little girl and all those people who met her on the tarmac! I saw Chelsea in the group; maybe Sinbad was drawing fire in another part of the base.

Here's another:

UPDATE - The comedian Sinbad, who accompanied Hillary, Chelsea, and Sheryl Crow, has disputed Hillary's account:

As Sinbad put it: The "scariest" part of the trip was wondering where he'd eat next. "I think the only 'red-phone' moment was: 'Do we eat here or at the next place.'"

"What kind of president would say," he added, 'Hey, man, I can't go 'cause I might get shot so I'm going to send my wife ... oh, and take a guitar player and a comedian with you.'"

Oh, geez ... tell me it ain't so Hill!

You cheated, you lied
You said that you want me
You cheated, you lied
You said that you love me

Oh what can I do ... ?
Oh what can I do ... ?

If Hillary only did 1/10 of what she says she did
It's still 10 times more foreign policy experience than Obama has. And frankly spending 5 years in a POA camp isn't exactly foreign policy experience either, no matter how hard you might wish it were so. Hillary's been more places and done more negotiating than any of them.

Re: If Hillary only did 1/10 of what she says she did
McCain was a naval aviater for over 20 years and has served as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee among many other committes and subcommittees. He has also experienced the brutality of and looked into the eyes of our enemy, an experience I think serves him well from many aspects.

I have many many disagreements with Sen. McCain, but I consider him infinitely more prepared to be president than either Obama or Clinton.

Additionally, Clinton's claims of being involved in negotiations and foreign affairs are being shown to be so much hot air. The Northern Ireland peace process is but one example of the "typical" Clinton overstatement.

Read the comments of a Nobel Prize Peace recipient and others in the British press:

Thanks for your comments though. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, although facts can and should help us revise them.

If Hillary only did 1/10 of what she says she did...

Don't you mean, "if Hillary even did 1/10 of what she says she did..."? Isn't that the question at this point?
