Hillary's repeated gaffes over claims about her past, about the patient who died without health insurance-- they tell us she does NOT have what it takes to take information, process it, and make those three AM decisions.
Hillary's Fact Checking Problem Dates Back to Her Vote To FOR the Iraq war
Hillary has told us, repeatedly, that she based her decision to vote FOR giving Bush permission to go to war upon the facts she had access to.
She has staked her future on this.
But lately, she's shown again and again that her judgment in assessing the facts upon which she bases decisions-- lately, decisions to make claims and statements-- is sadly lacking.
How many times can she excuse herself as being tire, misspeaking, not getting good enough vetting on information?
Keith Olbermann calls it "truth decay."
The list keeps growing-- dodging-bullets-in-Bosnia, "I was critical of Iraq first," the patient who didn't have health insurance who actually did...
These gaffes are adding up to show a candidate who really does not do her homework, does not competently vet the information she uses to make decisions.
In the psychiatric world, when a patient creates a story that is part fantasy or delusion, it's called confabulation. Hillary's not crazy, but she keeps making stuff up or making statements that are based on bad, inaccurate or distorted information or recollection.
We're seeing a pattern that is frightening.
The Bush administration has shown how easy it is to reject facts, refuse to accept reality and factual information.
Hillary's showing us that she has a propensity, well, at least a history, of doing the same.
I knew back, when Bush, Cheney, Powell and Rice were selling the Iraq war, in late 2002 and early 2003, that they were full of it, that their claims were bogus. The millions who demonstrated against the war knew. Why didn't Hillary?
Something to think about.
