Hillary Clinton: "I was also told that the greeting ceremony had been moved away from the tarmac but that there was this 8-year-old girl and, I can't, I can't rush by her, I've got to at least greet her -- so I greeted her, I took her stuff and then I left. Now that's my memory of it."

So, I was fleeing a sniper....and then this stupid little kid came up to me with some flowers or shit. So, I grabbed her junk and took off for the bunker.

Um, what happened to the kid?

The hell if I know. Who told that brat to enter a war zone anyway?

Seriously, wouldn't the responsible thing be to tell everyone present, "Move this child inside for God's sake."

7. Stop pretending you're not playing both sides
It's very unbecoming.

6. My grandmother's name was Snyper
I thought it was just a family thing.

The funny thing about that little girl? She's voting for Obama.

13. Has Mrs. Clinton even bothered to take the time to actually watch any of the videos?
You would think Chelsea would have queued at least one of them up for her. :eyes: Imagine what Chelsea is going to be barraged with at any of her future campaign events since she was there and her mother continues to lie and equivocate.

14. remember, Republicans are more than happy to take a child from his only living relative
and hand him (or her) over to a total stranger who will entice him (or her) with candy and trips to Disney's mega paradise ...
