Hillary Claims She "Risked Life" On White House Missions

Hillary Clinton appears to have embraced her inner-fabulist. From Newsday:

VINTON, Iowa - Ever since Barack Obama suggested Hillary Clinton's eight years as first lady were a glorified tea party a few days back, she's looked for an opening to strike back.

On Saturday night in Dubuque she pounced, arguing she risked her life on White House missions in the 1990s, including a hair-raising flight into Bosnia that ended in a "corkscrew" landing and a sprint off the tarmac to dodge snipers.

"I don't remember anyone offering me tea," she quipped.

The dictum around the Oval Office in the '90s, she added, was: "If a place was too dangerous, too poor or too small, send the first lady."

The story goes on to note that, according to her autobiography, she was joined on the "dangerous" mission by unfunny comic Sinbad, singer Sheryl Crow, first daughter Chelsea, and a full complement of Secret Service.

A bumpy plane ride with Sinbad does not a dangerous mission make... To ones dignity perhaps, but not to their health...

Hillary is an idiot. The fact that she is even a front runner is a testament to the idiocy of the Democrat party.

I have little doubt this is true.

A BJ is much easier to hide when your spouse is thousands of miles away rather than a few hundred meters, or less.

The dictum around the Oval Office in the '90s, she added, was: "If a place was too dangerous, too poor or too small, send the first lady." (Or Underdog. What, no cape?)

But bring some "friends" with you, in case it's a little too dangerous:

"What's not clear is whether Sinbad or Crow were invited to the cockpit or had to brave it out in the unprotected rear."

Maybe she was sent off on these dangerous missions on purpose.

Imagine how happy Bubba would be if he could get rid of her, w/ no secrets being told, no alimony, and no 'she gets half'.

Yes this is bullshit...just like Rudy..
If he had spent as much time on the Site, he would be suffering from the same lung problems as those who were really there. Hillery like Rudy sold out the true heroes. Both are shills.
God bless the true heroes and let us fully fund their medical situations.

COgirl:

I'd like to see those White House papers released, analyzed and publicized before I fall for this.

By the way, did I tell you that I risked my life just the other day? I have no proof of this, of course, you just have to make a leap faith. Sound familiar?

Holy cow nogo, Rudy isn't even close to being in the same league as Hillary on this sort of thing. By the way, aren't you even the least bit curious yourself what's in her unreleased papers?

epador:

I made lots of flights in and out of The Box. Combat approaches (corkscrew down abruptly) are fun. And they are safer than a typical straight approach if you think you might be a target.

Hell, she probably had the ride of her life on a Lear Jet with a bunch of party friends. I wonder if she had to wear the battle rattle and that made her feel like she was living dangerously?
