Hillary Tells Silly Lies To Make Herself Look Good

Nobel winner: Hillary Clinton's 'silly' Irish peace claims

Hillary Clinton had no direct role in bringing peace to Northern Ireland and is a "wee bit silly" for exaggerating the part she played, according to Lord Trimble of Lisnagarvey, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former First Minister of the province.

    "I don’t know there was much she did apart from accompanying Bill [Clinton] going around," he said. Her recent statements about being deeply involved were merely "the sort of thing people put in their canvassing leaflets" during elections. "She visited when things were happening, saw what was going on, she can certainly say it was part of her experience. I don’t want to rain on the thing for her but being a cheerleader for something is slightly different from being a principal player."

    Mrs Clinton has made Northern Ireland key to her claims of having extensive foreign policy experience, which helped her defeat Barack Obama in Ohio and Texas on Tuesday after she presented herself as being ready to tackle foreign policy crises at 3am.

    "I helped to bring peace to Northern Ireland," she told CNN on Wednesday. But negotiators from the parties that helped broker the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 told The Daily Telegraph that her role was peripheral and that she played no part in the gruelling political talks over the years.

    Lord Trimble shared the Nobel Peace Prize with John Hume, leader of the nationalist Social Democratic and Labour Party, in 1998. Conall McDevitt, an SDLP negotiator and aide to Mr Hume during the talks, said: "There would have been no contact with her either in person or on the phone. I was with Hume regularly during calls in the months leading up to the Good Friday Agreement when he was taking calls from the White House and they were invariably coming from the president.

    In high school I was a member of the Pep Squad but I never touched a football and certainly couldn't take credit for a touchdown. Perhaps Hilary thinks differently about how the game is played. Someone needs to clue her in about it. But then, perhaps she is just a lying deceiver, fooling the public - but we knew that, didn't we?

    When running for the most important job in America, NO lie should be considered silly. We are looking for honesty and integrity, and lies of any magnitude, large or small, silly or not, should be loudly addressed.

    Has Bush gotten this country to a state where lies are now acceptable?

    WA: Welcome, Tim. It appears that lying has become an acceptible way to do business, in the corporate world and in government/politics. When the leader(s) of the most powerful country in the world consistently lie and deceive, it sets an example for everyone else. Dishonesty is the name of the game and the goal is to win at any and all cost.
