lies, damn lies and hilary clinton
I've got a whole cartful of crap on my mind today.
Let's start with Hilary (via Cold Fury).
U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton had her staff fabricate records of meetings and phone calls to families of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to burnish her image as New York's leading politician on 9/11 issues, the author of a new book on how U.S. officials dealt with the aftermath of the attacks charged Sunday.
"I think [Sen. Clinton] has begun every statement she's ever made in her life about the families of the victims by saying she's met innumerable hours with the families of the victims," Steven Brill, author of the new book "After: How America Confronted the September 12 Era," told WABC Radio's Steve Malzberg.
Before the naysayers begin with "Newsmax.com is a biased source," I'll refute your refutation of this story.
I know for a fact that family members of 9/11 victims have been spurned by Hilary Clinton. I know for a fact that there were very few 9/11 funerals or memorials she appeared at if cameras weren't present.
No, Hilary did not owe anything to the victims or their families. She didn't have to see or have to be there for them.
But it sure speaks volumes about her that she would pretend she gave a shit about anything but herself, to even go so far as to fabricate a web of lies to make it appear as if she cared.
According to the story, most of the lies were told to Brill in an egotistical effort by Hilary to make sure she got more play in Brill's book than Sen. Schumer.
Personally, I think both of them - Schumer and Clinton - are nothing more than media whores and egomaniacs whose political lives are spent in search of the ultimate sound bite. But, despite the static coming out of his mouth most of the time, at least when Schumer says he was there for the families of 9/11 victims he's not telling lies.
