Lies And Damned Lies

First up is a real whopper:

Hillary Clinton - March 17, 2008:

"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."

CBS Report - March 24, 2008

My thoughts on this can be found here, in a post from yesterday.

Then we have this gem:

Sen. Barack Obama - March 14, 2008:

"The statements that Rev. Wright made that are the cause of this controversy were not statements I personally heard him preach while I sat in the pews of Trinity or heard him utter in private conversation."

Sen. Barack Obama - March 18, 2008

"I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy. For some, nagging questions remain. Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes."

For those that worship in the cult of Obama and have had a field day with Hillary Clinton being caught in a lie, consider these statements. Neither candidate's lies are praiseworthy, neither should be a source of pride, but which is worse?

Meanwhile, the bleeding continues. The latest Rasmussen poll shows McCain's stock trending up against Obama.

I love this.

What's worse for Hillary - saying you had to run with your head down to avoid sniper fire; or using as evidence of foreign policy experience a trip she took with Chelsea, Sheryl Crow and Sinbad?

Stop laughing Greg. This is serious.
