RUSH: Norfolk, Virginia, this is Mike. Thank you for waiting, sir. I really appreciate it.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, longtime listener, first-time caller, Hampton Roads Law Enforcement dittos to you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much. I appreciate it.
CALLER: This weekend, I read in the paper how Senator Clinton referenced a 1996 visit to Bosnia. She was sent because the president couldn’t go, and she made reference to the plane landed under sniper fire and she had to duck underneath bullets to get into the car and rush off the tarmac. And I’m kind of wondering, you know, I did some research back on the Internet, and I didn’t see anything in reference to that, so it kind of sounds like she’s telling some falsehoods there — and, you know, this Keystone Cops, Three Stooges Democratic Party here continue to shoot themselves in the foot. Why isn’t anybody calling her on it? Why isn’t anybody (garbled)?
RUSH: Well, in fact, the Washington Post has today. The Washington Post blog has a fact-checker post, and they’ve fact-checked this, and they’ve given Mrs. Clinton ‘four Pinocchios’ on this story, but the thing that troubles me about this is — ‘troubles me’ — it amazes me. This is old news. I can remember talking about this two or three weeks, or maybe even longer. Mrs. Clinton, she tells everybody she had to corkscrew down on the plane because there was all kinds of enemy fire, when she landed she had to run for cover because bullets were flying everywhere. None of it was true. There was a recognition ceremony. It was safe as it could be. There were no hostilities going on anywhere near where she was, it was all a lie, and I remember talking about this three or four weeks ago. I don’t even know why it’s coming back up again, but I was directed today to this Washington Post blog. They’ve fact-checked it and they’ve given her four Pinocchios, meaning out of five, talks about how big a lie it is.
RUSH: But I don’t know what’s bringing this up now, and you’re saying nobody is talking about it. A lot of people have been talking about this for quite a while.
CALLER: It’s the first time I’ve seen it. I read in the newspaper this week, and I never seen anything about it, and I was like that’s something different, I never remember anything about it.
RUSH: Snerdley is telling me she repeated the story even after it had been fact-checked and been shown to be a lie. Look, there’s a lot of stuff happening with the Clintons. We’re finding out all these documents that Judicial Watch got from a Freedom of Information Act request. We find out basically after the debacle of health care in 1993. She didn’t do anything. She didn’t do anything of any substance whatsoever until the impeachment stuff came up. She was managing the Paula Jones case, and she was managing ‘bimbo eruptions.’ She was managing the Lewinsky situation. But she really didn’t have much to do with anything after the health care debacle, and I think that this is stuff that the Clintons wanted to avoid, because this goes directly to her claim that she had all kinds of ‘experience.’ She’d be ready on day one. When the phone rings at three in the morning, you want somebody who’s experienced. The phone never rang at three in the morning, according to these records! So she never answered phone at three o’clock in the morning, officially, that anybody knows of. Neither did Clinton. He probably wasn’t home by then anyway. And the phone didn’t ring, so who knows? But I remain a little puzzled at the surprise factor when people learn that the Clintons lie, as though, ‘Wow!’ I know it’s not that. I know it’s not that. No, it’s, ‘Rush, we know they lie, and there’s proof!’ Yeah. There’s been proof for 20 years. It didn’t matter. Now, all of a sudden, it does. But, anyway, we’ll link to this Washington Post story, from the Fact Checker blog, at RushLimbaugh.com later this afternoon so that you can read all the details of it. I’ve been through it before.
