    Bob Woodward, the famous Washington Post reporter, described Hillary as a basically dishonest person. His assessment did not come from a casual or quick research for a column. Fellow Washington Post reporter, Carl Bernstein, wrote a book on Clinton, "A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton"
    http://www.amazon.com/Woman-Charge-Hillary-Rodham-Clinton/dp/0307388557/ref=sr_1_1

    Woodward-------------------------------

    "IF you distill what people are looking for now in a president, it is somebody who can govern and who thinks about them, and Hillary Clinton made a credible case for that, but they want somebody who is a truth teller. And they have got some distance to cover on that. I did books and involved her, one of her little mottos, her personal motto was, 'fake it until you make it,' and that's clever, but you can't fake your way into the presidency."

    Bernstein--------------------------------

    Appearing on CNN’s “New Day,” legendary journalist and former Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein reiterated that newly-announced Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has a “difficult relationship with the truth.”

    “Republicans, as you know, have depicted her as somebody who believes the truth is kind of a moving target,” host Alisyn Camerota said. “And you wrote about that in your book about her relationship with the truth.”

    She then quoted Bernstein’s 2008 book on Clinton, A Woman In Charge: “Since her Arkansas years, Hillary Rodham Clinton has always had a difficult relationship with the truth. It is an understatement by now that she has been known to apprehend truths about herself and the advance of her life that others do not exactly share.”

    Both of these distinguished journalists, perhaps the last of their kind, called it exactly right.

    Then how did pretty much 100% of other Presidents make it? I can't think of a single Prez who's had a squeaky clean record.

    She is a hapless ho who is only interested in her own self aggrandizement. She has zero leadership ability. She just talks a good game.

    All a matter of degree - And when it comes to dishonesty and likely criminal activity that hasn't been prosecuted, she stands alone, at least in recent history.

    They got what's called "elected", you know. Pretty hard to "fake" that?

    How can a credible journalist base his premise on a common motto? Lol at the double standards here. ALL of the GOP candidates are just regurgitating fake rhetoric until they (fingers crossed) "make it."

    Coming from a party (republican) that would stoop to any level to smear our current POTUS, or Mexicans, I think it's clear that they just hate her for shameful personal reasons which they're afraid to admit to, and because she's a democratic front runner.

    These last seven years have been non-stop Obama derangement syndrome from you hapless conservatives. It's great to see how early you're getting starting on Hillary psychosis.

    You've got shit on her. Baseless innuendo completely fabricated by right-wing focus groups and AM radio, eagerly lapped up by journalists hoping to score their next Lewinsky. "...likely criminal activity..." is such a naked tell on your part that you are willing to believe anything...ANYTHING...that the echo chamber on your side is willing to cook up.

    And this is all you've got, because you're desperate about the sad-as-a-French-clown show you're hosting on the right. Seriously, if Trump wins the nomination, you'd vote for him over Hillary? Santorum? Bush? Huckabee? Cruz? Carson? Fiorina? Rand fucking Paul?

    Wow, you must love America. If she wins the presidency, please feel free to move to your new austere conservative mecca in...oh gosh, what first world country will fit that bill?

    I seriously hate everything you stand for politically. You're the worst because you mix lies with truth, minimalize the egg on your darlings' faces, and pontificate relentlessly.

    Fact check: You do realize that EVERY GOP candidate hates you, your lifestyle, and LGBTs in general, right?

    Yet you relentlessly support them [GOP candidates] because you have unresolved daddy and/or power/inferiority issues and you're venting them here. Bitch please. I can't with this anymore...grow up, and stop biting the hand that feeds you(r fa**oty ass that would have been hated crimed but-for the legislation and attendant social acceptance that largely curbed (no pun intended) hate crimes against LGBTs in the USA). And don't get me started of SouthBeach's more "nuanced" (for lack of a better term) version of "support Sanders, not Hillary" because he wants to drive a wedge in the Dem voting bloc and have ultra-liberals stay at home in November 2016. Guess what, there are already emails about that among the base and supporters, so there's that.

    Your schtick is so tired.

    They are, literally, psychopathic in their derangement against the "left." Investigation after formal investigation, media scrutiny after years of scrutiny, they won't give up. It's the new "normal." I actually feel sorry for them because their party runs off of fear, hate and division (Satanic if you ask me, but nobody did, so I'll shut up about that vein).

    It's going to be an interesting 1.5 years.

    The lying about the private email accounts, conspiring with key aids to to the same, and destroying the evidence is clear evidence of a crime. Furthermore, circumstantial evidence regarding the Clinton Foundation is greater in scope and national impact than the evidence that led to Sen. Melendez's indictment and ex-Gov McDonnell's conviction. But people like you discount all that.

    Woodward and Bernstein outline a clear pattern of dishonesty. But people like you ignore that.

    The fact is if you tolerate dishonesty in others, then you must tolerate dishonesty in yourself. You've demonstrated what your character actually is.

    Is not that faulting her for being a liberal? A core liberal value is subjectivity over objectivity. Obama care was passed on a pile of lies but liberals think that is fine when it promotes their agenda. Only Republicans are capable of lies in the liberal mind.

    Besides, the concept of hell is just propaganda used against anyone who rebels against the tyranny of monotheism.icon_confused.gif

    If anyone suffers from severe derangement, it is all your brain dead supporters of the hapless Hillary ho. The very idea of wanting this incompetent, ethically challenged, power hungry, decrepit cunt as President obviously exposes your mental instability which should make all you damned fools ineligible to vote. All of you Hillary supporters are a grave liability to this great country's future.

    Look at the pot calling the kettle blackicon_exclaim.gif Most in fact the overwhelming majority of you Texans hate the U.S. and have secession on your minds. You all can keep that Canadian national born now Texan Ted Cruz. That narrow minded bible thumping screwball is not eligible to be President of the United States because he was not born in this country. The hapless Hillary ho is not going to win the Presidency because Bernie Sanders is going to verbally rip her apart and expose the truth of what she really is, a power hungry, self aggrandizement seeking bitch only interested in making a big name for herself. She has no leadership ability, she has no accomplishments, she has had everything handed to her on a silver platter, she is all mouth and no action.

    There is not going to be a Clinton Presidency because both Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley are going to verbally tear apart the hapless Hillary ho and expose her for what she really is, a power hungry, unethical, entitled cunt that has no leadership ability. Furthermore she is a war hawk in as much the same way as G.W. Bush so there is not going to be any peace and prosperity under this self aggrandizement seeking, decrepit whore. You need to get out of your fantasyland about a future Clinton Presidency. It is just not going to happen.

    Alpha13 saidIs not that faulting her for being a liberal? A core liberal value is subjectivity over objectivity. Obama care was passed on a pile of lies but liberals think that is fine when it promotes their agenda. Only Republicans are capable of lies in the liberal mind.

    Well said. I would normally think that zealots or ideologues at either extreme would lie equally. But that is not what I have observed. Those on the far right are extremely blunt, but truthful, and often shoot themselves in the foot. Take Todd Akin from Missouri in the 2012 election as an example. They would probably be more effective if they were less truthful.

    But liberals have mastered the lie as an art form. Fortunately, many are on to their game. To the far left, the end justifies the means, even if it means to lie and violate the law.

    Their oft stated mantra, "The evil Republicans opposed Obama from the get go" is pure bullshit. Republicans initially collaborated with Democrats on Obamacare when it was initially in Senate committees. Republican Susan Collins made it a point to work with Democrats. Then all Republicans, including Collins, were excluded from the process. When the Republicans were finally included in a meeting after the bill was created, they offered amendments, which the Democrats rejected because it was not favored by Democratic special interests. Obama was smug about the whole thing: "We won", "Elections have consequences."

    Today even Democrats in Congress don't like him.

    Anyway - didn't mean to derail the topic I started, but it was good example of how far left liberals lie as easily as most of us breathe. Hillary may not have been from the far left, although she is now talking that game, but she does lie with the best of them.
