if your kid lied as much as Hillary Clinton you’d take away her TV privileges

Once again, Hillary Clinton “misspeaks” on the campaign trail:

Over the last five weeks, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York has featured in her campaign stump speeches the story of a health care horror: an uninsured pregnant woman who lost her baby and died herself after being denied care by an Ohio hospital because she could not come up with a $100 fee.

The woman, Trina Bachtel, did die last August, two weeks after her baby boy was stillborn at O’Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens, Ohio. But hospital administrators said Friday that Ms. Bachtel was under the care of an obstetrics practice affiliated with the hospital, that she was never refused treatment and that she was, in fact, insured.

“We implore the Clinton campaign to immediately desist from repeating this story,” said Rick Castrop, chief executive officer of the O’Bleness Health System.

Linda M. Weiss, a spokeswoman for the not-for-profit hospital, said the Clinton campaign had never contacted the hospital to check the accuracy of the story, which Mrs. Clinton had first heard from a Meigs County, Ohio, sheriff’s deputy in late February.

A Clinton spokesman, Mo Elleithee, said candidates would frequently retell stories relayed to them, vetting them when possible. “In this case, we did try but were not able to fully vet it,” Mr. Elleithee said. “If the hospital claims it did not happen that way, we respect that.”

They really have to knock this shit off. It seems like every week Hillary is caught in another false statement.

Maybe this is why her unfavorability rating is at an all time high and she comes in third in the “able to unite the country” question.

It’s tough to be an effective leader, even if one does manage to use enough wedge issues and misdirection to win the presidency. Just ask President Bush.

It also creates a question about the campaign’s mantra that Hillary is vetted and ready to be president.

They didn’t even call the fucking hospital before they put it in her stump speech? Are we sure they even know what “vetted” means?

    It depends on what your definition of “lies” is.

    And if you’ve drunk any of the Klinton Kkkool-aid yet, at the Altar of the Ascension of the Virgin Hillary.

    I think its so funny how Obama can lie and lie yet. you talk about how much Hilary lies, Double standard are what going to make barack Obama lose the election,,, He needs the other half of Hilary Vote to win the election against McCain,
    But Barack will not get them he will lose ,, Obama lost 28% of hilary votes, well new polls are out he going to lose 2/3 of hilary vote and will not be president,
    But I will get back on track if Obama Lie 6 times and Hilary lies 9 time Barack is a better person,, You really think that, A Liar is Liar, Barack is a Liar to the core so is Hilary, these blogs like this is what going to make Barack Obama lose the election, Your not uniting the party your keeping it divided,, it going to be funny watching you guys cry when Barack loses the presidency,

    Hillary supporters must be very disillusioned with a candidate who has proven to be so divisive and dishonest. I understand their need to lash out in frustration but to imitate her scorched earth/support McCain politics has proved unproductive and negative. Try to take the high road, don’t let the Clintons drag you down and be a proud Democrat. Hillary supporters can threaten and try to intimidate Democrats but Obama and the voters will do fine without them.

  4. Lola,

    Thank you for your comment. Your sentiment sounds a lot like the latest superdelegate to pledge their support for Obama:

    “Senator Obama reminds me of why I’m a Democrat.”
