Her Financial Status
In her last days in South Dakota she approached voters and told them she was the most fiscally responsible candidate.
“If you will vote for me next Tuesday, you are voting for the most fiscally responsible candidate in this race on either side of the aisle,”
Clinton said, a blatant jab at both Barack Obama and John McCain.
Clinton spent $31.6 million in February and had $33 million in the bank, but of that $21.7 could only be used in the general election, according
to her FEC filing. Clinton also reported $8.7 million in debts
If she can't handle her own budget of $150 million, how can we expect her to handle the federal budget?
Also, (As of May 29, 2008)
First, her campaign is approximately $20 million in debt, even after she loaned over $11 million of her own money to the cause. Several vendors
and suppliers have come forward to say they are owed money by the campaign, and her former chief strategist, Mark Penn, is owed $5 million for his
services before he parted ways with Clinton.
The facts are above. How can she possibly handle our country's budget when she can't even pay her own staff, let alone companies, universities, and
local governments on her campaign trail.
Bosnia Sniper Fire
Clinton First Remarks on Good Morning America
I Remember Landing Under Sniper Fire. There Was Supposed To Be Some Kind Of A Greeting Ceremony At The Airport, But Instead We Just Ran With Our
Heads Down To Get Into Vehicles To Get To Our Base.
Then She stated this:
You know I have written about this and described it in many different settings and I did misspeak the other day.
Clearly, she is trying to prove she has the experince by being in a war zone by lying to voters that she was under fire in Bosnia in which this was
not the case.
Her Iraq War Record
In Orgeon Clinton stated that she critized the war in Iraq well before Obama did. This is simply not true, indeed she actually voted for the war in
2002, while Obama was opposing it.
Scrambling to support their boss's claim, Clinton campaign officials pointed to a paper statement Clinton issued on Jan. 26, 2005, explaining her
vote to confirm Condoleezza Rice as Secretary of State.
"The Administration and Defense Department's Iraq policy has been, by any reasonable measure, riddled with errors, misstatements and
misjudgments," the January 2005 Clinton statement said. "From the beginning of the Iraqi war, we were inadequately prepared for the aftermath of the
invasion with too few troops and an inadequate plan to stabilize Iraq."
But Obama offered criticisms of the war in Iraq eight days before that, directly to Rice, in his very first meeting as a member of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee on Jan. 18.
"I am concerned about this notion that was pursued by Senator Biden and others that we've made significant progress in training troops," Obama
told Rice "Because it seems to me that in your response to Senator Alexander that we will not be able to get our troops out absent the Iraqi forces
being able to secure their own country, or at least this administration would not be willing to define success in the absence of such security. I
never got quite a clear answer to Senator Biden's question as to how many troops -- Iraqi troops -- don't just have a uniform and aren't just
drawing a paycheck, but are effective enough and committed enough that we would willingly have our own troops fighting side-by- side with them. The
number of 120,000 you gave, I suspect, does not meet those fairly stringent criteria that Senator Biden was alluding to. I just want to make sure, on
the record, that you give me some sense of where we're at now."
Cleary, this many lies, I could go on more and more, but how could we allow a person to become our President, our representative of America, our face
of this nation, when she clearly cannot balance a budget or keep facts straight to the public?
