Skip to comments.Bill and Chelsea Clinton Might Want to Fact-Check Their Speeches (lie about darfur genocide)
Posted on 01/24/2008 8:04:13 PM PST by enough_idiocy
President Clinton has been touting his wife's commitment to Africa on the campaign trail by telling interested voters that "Hillary was the first U.S. Senator to call Darfur genocide." He used that exact line with voters in Aiken, S.C., yesterday, and it has been pointed out more than once over the course of this campaign.
The usually shy Chelsea also touted her mother's record on Darfur, telling a group at Stanford University earlier this month that she was "really proud that my mom was the first Democratic senator to call it genocide in May of 2004 and put a lot of pressure on the Bush administration to recognize it as genocide."
Problem is, the statements simply aren't true.

OK, I give up: Who said it first?
Poor Chelsea, being forced to do the dirty lying work of her parents ... can't the authorities be called in for child abuse? I thought that Dems were all for "the CHILDREN" and all, guess I was wrong. /sigh
Of course the Bush administration, Powell specifically, and long before this. In fact, the Bush admin fought the UN over it.
“Turns out that the honor President Clinton and Chelsea are bestowing on Hillary actually belongs to Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., Mike DeWine, R-Ohio, and Sam Brownback, R-Kansas.”
Two republicans. Hillary’s daughter is a spinmaster liar like her mother and her father.
We aren’t allowed to criticize Chelsea. She’s just the child of an ex-president. We need to stay focused on the issues and are not permitted to question the questionable statements of the Clintons who’ll pander to audiences at the drop of a hat and revise the past to win points.
“really proud that my mom was the first Democratic senator to call it genocide”
So Feingold gets the credit for First Democrat. you always have to parse the Clintons’ words.
Did Bill also note his enabling of the Darfur situation in the first place? Plenty of genocide went down on his watch without even a token cruise missile launch.
"Mom" is a democrat senator. She's as far from democratic as it is possible to be.
DUH!!! - Clintons = Liar
I think Hillary should get the WHOLE family involved. Where are her rascally brothers. The Rodham boys have "experience" like Hillary's in that they hung out at the White House.
Surely they have run out of their pardon selling commissions by now. They can go out on the road with Bill and it'll be a regular three ring circus.
Pathological lying is genetic.
Where is Hillary’s mother? Haven’t seen her on the campaign trail in a while.
She's with Obama now.
I thought it was from a lack of home-baked cookies. But, perhaps, also, from hearing her mom call the secret service pigs and servants and someone a F’n J^^ Ba^^^^^.
Democrats lying? Why, I’ve never heard of such a thing...
Yep. She's learned well.
I saw her on TV and she was riding in a car with America Ferrera (Ugly Betty star)
Here's a young woman who has traveled all over the world, tried to portray a mature image hanging out with with designers and the European elite, and then while in the car with young Ferrera, Chelsea magically turns into a valley girl with a valley girl voice,
" I was like, I'm soooo proud of my mom......"
Chameleon just like dad, the first Black pres, and mom, Southern Fried Hilary.
Same position during Rwanda.
Stanford education, 150K job out of school, speech to sorority girls (though never in one), and this is what she amounts to. Funny. Meanwhile, the Bush twins, former party girls, voluntered in Africa and South America, worked in the DC public school system, have authored books and are getting married.
Trash v. class.
