Hillary’s mysterious disappearance from public view

By Tom Quiner

Where did Hillary Clinton go?

She has vanished from public view in recent weeks. Why?

Republican National Committee Chairman, Reince Priebus, has come up with an explanation: she doesn’t want to be asked about Bosnia. You remember the tale she spun about her trip to Bosnia as First Lady:

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Sadly, video footage revealed her entire account was a fabrication, as you can see in the video above.

In light of Brian William’s recent fall from grace for pillorying (or should we say ‘hillarying’) the truth in the exact same way, it seems fair to assume Hillary doesn’t want her untruth dredged up again.

Mr. Priebus sent his counterpart in the Democratic Party, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the following letter to shine some light on the situation:

Dear Debbie:

As you have undoubtedly noticed, Hillary Clinton, your presumptive 2016 nominee and President Obama’s heir apparent, has been hiding from the public. We at the RNC, like many Americans, have been wondering why.

After hearing about Brian Williams’s recent suspension at NBC for telling false stories about coming under fire in war zones, we thought perhaps the DNC had also “suspended” Mrs. Clinton for her similar fabrications.

As you remember, she once told a harrowing tale of “landing under sniper fire” in Bosnia, only to have her story completely debunked when a video showed her walking casually on the tarmac.

So, have you given Mrs. Clinton the Brian Williams treatment? Is that why she’s gone missing?

If that’s not the case, do you rebuke her fabrications in the same way that NBC has rebuked their star news anchor? Will the DNC conduct research into Mrs. Clinton’s other past statement to ensure that she is being honest with the American people? If not, I’m sure we can help with that.

    Can someone please explain to me why these people do this? I mean, I suppose it just might be that their egos are so big, they just have to make stories about themselves more and more exciting, more and more courageous, etc. I dunno. But it seems amazingly stupid to me to make up stories in national and international forums that are so easily and inevitably going to be uncovered for the falsehoods that they are. The press is just too widespread and tenacious, ready to pounce, as they ought to, on such “sleep-deprived” flights of fancy. I’m too old to be naïve to think that nobody would want to lie about what they did and said because it’s wrong. But maybe I am still naïve on another count–thinking that the famous and powerful wouldn’t actually think we’re too stupid, or that they’re too charismatic and clever, for them to get caught in these lies.

      Thomas, you pose good questions. Is the issue deceit, arrogance, or delusion? Don’t know. Thanks for writing.

        Still, I think the letter from Priebus is the mark of a “small” man. I appreciate good sarcasm when I see it, but this letter just seems in bad taste. Perhaps it is just me.

        We need to knock this one out of the park. This country cannot afford another 4 or even 8 years of Obama-style Progressivism. While I do not believe that Hillary would govern as far left as Obama, I still do not want to see that happen. We need to change course, and soon.

          Actually, Shawn, you’re right on all fronts.
