The Clintons' Real Trouble with Truth

Hollywood mogul David Geffen touched a raw nerve with Hillary Clinton when he told New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd that “everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling.”

The Clintons’ trouble with truth, however, is not just the petty political lying nor is it their quibbling over what “is is” or what “mistake” means.

Mr Parry has some acquaintance with John Kerry, investigator and prosecutor, leading the BCCI and part of Iran Contra investigations. He may be ambitious, but he doesn't lie. Contrary to media deconstruction, quite the steely determined guy who went up against both parties. Shame on the Democratic party preferring to wait for Bill's third term with lackluster support for a Kerry presidency. We would have had truth and change.
