    I'd demote him off the anchor desk, but not fired.

    Yes the so-called sniper fire was when she was first lady, but didn't the truth come out when she was a senator?

    But I guess I'm the only one. Which is ok with me, because from what I can tell I have no desire to be part of the "in crowd". My sense of self is not so shallow. Sometimes the majority opinion is indeed correct, but it's surprising how often the minority view is the one that turns out being correct.
    I can appreciate your position and generally speaking, when people sincerely apologize for a mistake or error in judgement I'm willing to accept and move on. But I have to say that it would be impossible for me to remember being shot down in a helicopter and then rescued by soldiers if it never happened. That's not a mistake or an error, that's a blatant fabrication for the sole purpose of gaining prestige and/or credibility that is undeserved. This requires far more than a simple apology, but in today's society, integrity is often hard to find. It reminds me of a time when politicians, when caught in a lie or misbehaving, immediately resigned their seat/position and sought forgiveness after falling on their sword. They didn't seek forgiveness while clinging to office like a rat to a log in a raging river.

    I am not sure about that. It may well have taken that long for the MSM to uncover that slight mischaracterization of fact.

    Greetings, ttwtt78640.

    All of us have said stupid things on occasion. It just seems ironic that she should get a pass, but Williams should be fired? C'mon! What's the difference in the stories - they were both fabricated, but Williams isn't contemplating running for President!

    Maybe he needed to get people to stop talking about his slut daughter.

    Williams lied telling his combat story.
    Clint Eastwood lied telling Kyle's.

    So what?

    Combat sucks.
    Let the liars have their fun making **** up.
    It makes such an entertaining yarn.

    Fair points, and I cannot disagree with anything you say.

    Maybe this isn't the right incident to take issue with, but I am growing weary of everybody acting all over everything that comes down the line. Especially when, if you pay attention to some people long enough, you notice they're quick to have some spin ready when they do similar things. I will admit that this has been grating on me more than usual in the past several weeks.

    And thank you for the rational response. It is most appreciated.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yet... he may be an ideal candidate for Hillary's WH press secretary though.

    She may need considerable help in "misremembernig" quite a few things.
