Hillary Clinton on 10/30/2007:
I think, for us to act like Social Security is in crisis is a Republican trap. We're playing on the Republican field. And I don't intend to do that.
Oh, thank goodness! Social Security isn't in trouble!
On second thought, if Hillary is to be believed, she didn't know anything about the fraudulent Whitewater land deals, Paula Jones, Henry Cisneros' crimes, Vince Foster's magical copy of the Rose Law Firm files, Travelgate, Kathleen Willey, Chinagate, Juanita Broaddrick, Peter Paul, Norman Hsu, Pardongate or a host of other outrageous activities.
So maybe we should worry about Social Security after all.
In all seriousness, can you imagine what it feels like to flat-out lie about Social Security in front of a national audience? Even her most ardent supporters have to shudder when they hear statements like that.
