FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
Just when talk about Hillary Clinton's tale from the tarmac in Bosnia was starting to die down, Bill Clinton decided to bring it up again.
Speaking in Indiana, the former president defended his wife's lie about "landing under sniper fire" during that 1996 trip.
He said that she made the comment "one time late at night when she was exhausted, misstated - and immediately apologized for it." Bill Clinton added that he believed Hillary was the first first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt to go into a combat zone and that the media treated her like she'd "robbed a bank", suggesting "some of them, when they're 60, they'll forget something when they're tired at 11 at night, too."
So now we have the former president lying about his wife's lie. Hillary Clinton made the comments about the Bosnia trip numerous times, not just once and not just "late at night." Once she told the fictional sniper fire tale early in the morning. In fact, it took about a week for her to correct herself – saying she "misspoke" and "made a mistake." And the Eleanor Roosevelt claim is bogus as well, since Pat Nixon traveled to Vietnam in 1969.
So why would a skillful politician like Bill Clinton re-ignite an issue that hurt his wife? You'd think he would know better. Unless it wasn't an accident.
In fact, Clinton brought up the Bosnia issue twice yesterday.
Hillary Clinton has since told her husband to knock it off. She said, "You weren't there. Let me handle it." His response? "Yes, Ma'am."
Here’s my question to you: Why would Bill Clinton voluntarily bring up the story of his wife's trip to Bosnia?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Peter from Dallas writes:
She was exhausted and that led to the error of a sniper fire? If she doesn't know the difference between a flower ceremony with a little girl and a sniper because of exhaustion at 11pm, then what kind of judgment will she show at 3am when that phone rings?
Ann from Charlotte, NC writes:
Plain and simple, he doesn't want her to win. He wants to be the only one in the family to hold the title of former president. You are looking at the dysfunction of two of the greatest egos of our times.
Joe from Phoenix, Arizona writes:
Right now, the entire Hillary campaign is in a tail spin. I am a Democrat, but these constant lies and exaggerations remind me too much of Bush, Cheney and company. Obama and McCain may have their own issues, but at least they appear to have their integrity intact.
‘Cause if the spotlight is dimming on him he has to make the light shine. He is not happy being 2nd fiddle.
Wael from St. Paul, Minn. writes:
For Obama, Bill is the gift that keeps on giving. If Hillary becomes the nominee, Bill will become McCain's gift that keeps on giving. He caused a blow-out loss in South Carolina. This time, he may cost her a knock-out punch in Pennsylvania. Bill makes the race much more entertaining and fun to watch. Can you imagine what kind of drama we will get if the Clintons are back in the White House?
Dennis from North Carolina writes:
If Bill Clinton makes a comment about Hillary being tired, I would imagine John McCain, at his age, would not answer the phone at 3am. That leaves us only Obama, who can answer the phone correctly.
