Rush discovers new Hillary Myth

Hillary claims she and Bill were ‘dead broke’ leaving White House

On a book tour this week, Hillary Clinton made a bunch of gaffes. She claimed President Abraham Lincoln was once a U.S. Senator (nope), and she said she and her husband left the White House “dead broke” in 2001 (false).

But host Rush Limbaugh noticed one other thing that Hillary said this week that probably wouldn’t become a gaffe for a few years, like when she runs for president. Here’s Rush’s explanation of a new “Hillary Myth”:

“Everybody just assumes that if Hillary Clinton wants to be president. Even though it was denied her in 2008, it’s part and parcel of the inside-the-Beltway mind-set that if she wants to be president, she’s going to be president. They attach superhuman characteristics to Hillary and Bill and I’ve always said, you know, she’s just like all the other guys. She puts her pants on one leg at a time. But this is even worse. I don’t think she’s going to be able to outrun this Benghazi stuff.

“She said something in an interview with Cynthia McFadden of NBC News. Obama admitted that some of the five Gitmo detainees released in the Bowe Bergdahl deal could go back to targeting America. But in an interview with Cynthia McFadden, Clinton said that those five Taliban commanders are not a threat to the United States.

“Now, I think this might come back to haunt Mrs. Clinton. This one little answer to this one little question, to me, is proof that this woman is neither smart nor competent. Ever since the Clintons first hit the scene, this whole image construct of Hillary Clinton as the smartest woman in the world and the most competent and she will be the best president this country’s had in a long time if we could ever get her elected, it’s a buzz campaign, it’s a PR campaign.

“You know me, mayor of Realville. I believe in substance. Real achievement, not buzz and PR. And Hillary is buzz and PR. And it just amazes me the number of people, on our side, I’m talking about Republicans in Washington, who just eat it up, they buy it. And they do so because they’re afraid, I think.

“Now, this answer, “Those five guys are not a threat.” This is something brilliant and smart? First lady, secretary of state, senator from New York, all of that. It’s a legend, a myth. It’s exactly what we were talking about. John Kennedy said the lie is not the most damaging thing. It’s the myth. The myth perpetuates so many untruths and falsifications — and she is one. She’s a legend in the media’s eyes, a legend in the Democrats’ eyes. Anyway, this statement is just further evidence. “These five guys are not a threat to the United States. “

“Tell me something, Mrs. Clinton. Did Osama Bin Laden concoct 9/11 from the Watergate Hotel? Where was he when he did that? Where were any of these people before 9/11 happened? None of them were here. These five are free to go back and concoct and manipulate and plan and train, and as long as we have Americans on station anywhere in the world, how do you say they are not a threat to the United States?”
