“Do or do not, there is no try”

Last night was not a particularly good one for Hillary Clinton. Not only was she grilled on why she wouldn’t release her paid speeches at a Nevada town hall, but in an interview with CBS News’ Scott Pelley, Hillary could not definitively say that she has not and would not lie to the American people.

Instead, she said she tries not to lie. Look at the video. Look at the body language from Clinton – does that look like the body language of someone who is telling the truth about her own capacity to tell the truth?

In the words of a wise green puppet from Dagobah, “do or do not, there is no try.” Well, when it comes to a president telling the truth to the American people, there is no TRY Hillary – you either do tell the truth or you do not. If you can’t give that guarantee, apply for a different job.

“It says a lot that in a nationally televised interview Hillary Clinton wouldn’t definitively say that she has never lied to the American people and will never lie to the American people. This kind of Clintonspeak is exactly why voters don’t trust Hillary and is why she is not qualified to be President of the United States.” – American Crossroads Communications Director, Ian Prior
