She just can’t keep herself from lying. Does she even know the truth anymore? One has to ask as she apparently can quite stridently deny the truth of the matter. She just can’t help but be willing to do most anything for money. Hillary was a bit snarky through her whole interview with Rachael Maddow. This piece is just making the blogosphere and worthy of holding her feet to the fire. Here we go:
Hillary Clinton said that Bernie Sanders should follow the example she set in 2008 when she threw her support behind then-Sen. Barack Obama without putting down “conditions,” but a look back to 2008 shows that Clinton refused to step aside until Obama promised to help her with her campaign debt. Below a partial transcript:
“Let’s look at what happened in 2008, because that’s the closest example,” Clinton said. “We got to the end in June and I did not put down conditions. I didn’t say, ‘You know what, if Senator Obama does X, Y, and Z, maybe I’ll support him.’ I said, ‘I am supporting Senator Obama, because no matter what our differences might be, they pale in comparison to the differences between us and the Republicans.’”
“That is what I think one does,” Clinton concluded. “That is certainly what I did and I hope that we will see the same this year.”
Although Clinton said she threw her support behind Obama without preconditions, a stroll down memory lane indicates she strayed from the truth.
Reports from early June 2008 show that the Obama campaign’s willingness to assist Clinton with the massive campaign debt she had amassed was a major sticking point when it came to her political surrender.
Top Clinton adviser Harold Ickes told major campaign donors that Clinton “was unlikely to pull out of the race until the issue of her massive debts was resolved,” according to a June 3, 2008, report from the Daily Telegraph, which also indicated that negotiations were in progress.
“It’s not about the vice-presidency or any other position she might get,” a source close to a donor said. “It’s about the money—in particular the Clinton family money.”
“The Obama campaign might have to reach deeply into its well-stocked coffers in order to secure the full support of Mrs. Clinton and her husband Bill in the November general election,” wrote theTelegraph’s Toby Harnden.
The Clinton campaign was more than $22 million in debt at the time, and $12 million of that was money Clinton had loaned to the campaign herself.
