As far as Hillary's supposed dishonesty, I don't see it, nor have I heard any reasonable explanation as to why she is supposedly so dishonest.

Considering how well Hillary knows everything she says will be thoroughly scrutinized, it is very believeable that the sniper fire improv was a case of mistaken memory, some day dream confused with reality.
I googled Hillary Clinton lies, and what you get are a bunch of blowhards on blogs heavy on accusation and empty on evidence or actual quotes. If you have anything legitimate, like an article from a NYTimes reporter conducting an interview with actual quotes, as is easily found on Obama's recital of the opening prayer of Islam, please provide such evidence.
Nobody doles out taxpayer money like Hillary Clinton — or rakes in as much campaign cash from the companies she does favors for

Wow, you seem to be hopelessly confused. The quote you give does not prove Hillary is a liar. In fact, the quote you provide isn't even the truth. Obama has collected more money than Hillary. GW certainly took more money from lobbyists. You have provided a quote that can easily be proven wrong. Wow, big swoosh!!!!
The Rolling Stones is a fairly decent music rag, but not known for their political analysis. If that is the best you got, I suggest you go back to college. No, on the other hand, that seems to be the wrong route these days. Go get a job working construction or repairing cars, and develop a solid understanding of the real world.
And, OTHER than the massive amounts of info you're about to come in to regarding her lies, here's another article talking about another reason to stay away from Hillary you should check out that should get you up and researching even more:
The quote you give does not prove Hillary is a liar.
Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here's her scorecard:
• Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
• Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
• She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
• She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn't cover the market back then.)
Whoppers She Won't Confess To
• She didn't know about the FALN pardons.
• She didn't know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
• Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
• She didn't know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
• She didn't know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
• She opposed NAFTA at the time.
• She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
• She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
• She played a role in the '90s economic recovery.
• The billing records showed up on their own.
• She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
• She was always a Yankees fan.
• She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
• She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
With a record like that, is it any wonder that we suspect her of being less than honest and straightforward?
Hillary's word: It's worth nothing

COURTING VOTERS in Iowa and New Hampshire, last August Sen. Hillary Clinton signed a pledge not to "campaign or participate" in the Michigan or Florida Democratic primaries. She participated in both primaries and is campaigning in Florida. Which proves, again, that Hillary Clinton is a liar.
Clinton kept her name on the Michigan ballot when others removed theirs, she campaigned this past weekend in Florida, and she is pushing to seat Michigan and Florida delegates at the Democratic National Convention. The party stripped those states of delegates as punishment for moving up their primary dates.
"I will try to persuade my delegates to seat the delegates from Michigan and Florida," Clinton said last week, after the New Hampshire primaries and Iowa caucuses were safely over.
Clinton coldly and knowingly lied to New Hampshire and Iowa. Her promise was not a vague statement. It was a signed pledge with a clear and unequivocal meaning.
She signed it thinking that keeping the other candidates out of Michigan and Florida was to her advantage, but knowing she would break it if that proved beneficial later on. It did, and she did.
New Hampshire voters, you were played for suckers.
Hillary Locks and Loads

Well, it's a pleasure to welcome Mrs. Clinton to the Second Amendment side of the debate. It's a new development; back in 2000, when Mrs. Clinton was running for Senate, she backed the "Million Mom March" for gun control, and, according to CNN, told the Newspaper Association of America, "We have to do more to stand up to those who refuse to believe the reality that guns do kill and that common-sense gun measures can make a difference."
Hillary's Latest Flip-Flop
New York Sun Editorial

Say this for Senator Clinton's presidential campaign, it certainly is good for a chuckle now and then. The latest was her energy policy, released yesterday, proposing "funding for an ARPA-E, a new research agency modeled on the successful Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency." The part that made us chuckle was Mrs. Clinton's description of DARPA as "successful." Why, it was not long ago — July of 2003, to be precise — that Mrs. Clinton was accusing DARPA and one of its officials at the time, Iran-Contra figure Admiral John Poindexter, of planning what she called a "market in death and destruction," that was "not in keeping with our values." The idea, advanced by DARPA, was of a market that would allow bettors to wager on the likelihood of terrorist attacks or other adverse events in particular times and places.
Earlier in 2003, Mrs. Clinton and her Senate colleagues voted to scuttle a DARPA anti-terrorism database project known as "Total Information Awareness." In fact, Senator Clinton was a co-sponsor of the amendment by Senator Wyden, passed on January 23, 2003, to halt funding for DARPA's Total Information Awareness program. A press release from Mr. Wyden touted Mrs. Clinton's assistance in averting what Mr. Wyden warned would have been "the most far-reaching government surveillance plan in history," one with the potential to allow the government "to snoop on law-abiding Americans." Now Mrs. Clinton is out on the campaign trail touting DARPA as a success. We don't doubt that it is — the American military is a technological marvel. But the real wonders here aren't military technology but the contortions Mrs. Clinton is willing to go through to get herself elected president.
