Let’s see …
Barack Obama is bad, he’s evil, because David Geffen, the Dreamworks founder, was quoted as saying “Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling.” And, Geffen made a $2300 contribution to Obama’s campaign.
Give it back Obama!
Yet, Geffen is a former Bill Clinton supporter and Clinton was impeached for lying. Meanwhile, Hillary exploits Bill’s reputation at every opportunity and somehow escaped scandal after scandal after scandal … while in the Whitehouse.
By the way, growls Hillary, mention the impeachment and you’ll face the bloody wrath of my awesome omnipotent political machine.
Quite clearly, Geffen has single-handedly pried the lid off the rusty old can of Clinton lies, reminding voters of what will happen if this truth-challenged couple ever returns to the Oval Office.
Here are a few of the Clinton lies, which Hillary participated in via spin and cover-up, from RealClearPolitics:
-- Clinton lied under oath to a federal grand jury. (That's perjury, of course, and perjury remains a felony.)
-- Clinton continues to lie about his 12-year affair with Gennifer Flowers.
-- Clinton still denies he sexually harassed Paula Jones. (Even though he paid her $850,000 in hush money.)
-- Clinton persists in dismissing the Whitewater scandal as a "land deal where I lost money" (despite the fact that a dozen of his close associates landed in jail over the matter).
-- Clinton illegally obtained FBI files on his political opponents and lied about that, too.
-- On the golf course, Clinton has an incredibly difficult time playing his ball where it lies. According to close observers (Tiger Woods among them), Clinton exhibits questionable math when he tallies his scorecard.
-- And according to Washington Post reporter John Harris, Clinton was so upset about his inability to lose weight in 2000 that following his annual physical he instructed aides to release a bogus number that made him five pounds lighter.
We all remember how he looked into the camera, emotional and indignant, and said, “I did not have sex with the woman.” We all remember Hillary labeling Bill’s critics as the vast right wing conspiracy.
We remember Hillary going on the offensive during Bill’s campaign, when his critics brought up his known affair with Flowers.
We remember Bill’s promise that he and Hillary entered the Whitehouse as a team.
Hillary threatens, now, that nobody had better mention the impeachment of her husband, Bill, or else …
Back to my opening statement. Why is it that Hillary can accuse Obama on the basis of Geffen’s statements, which everyone knows to be true, and yet nobody is allowed to mention the Clinton Whitehouse follies?
