Clinton Inserts Foot Again

Hillary Clinton 3

I tell you this is getting so old. Hillary (0nce again) has opened her mouth and inserted her foot. Clinton, who is hoping that the inclusion of vote counts from the Florida and Michigan primaries will help her win her party's nomination, said last Wednesday that it is wrong when people go through the motions of an election only to have them discarded and disregarded, according to CBS News.

"We're seeing that right now in Zimbabwe," she was reported to have told a crowd in South Florida. Well it seems Zimbabwean Ambassador to the United States Machivenyika Mapuranga did not appreciate the comparison. Mapuranga said Clinton's comparison was made "out of ignorance or malice" and do not "tally with the facts."

He was further quoted as saying, "If Sen. Hillary Clinton was not aware of these facts,( Zimbawae election resulted in the ruling party (ZANU-PF) winning 97 seats, and the opposition party (MDC) winning 99 seats, as declared by the independent commission), her ignorance can be excused considering the stressful situation she is in because of her faltering campaign; but if she was aware of the facts, we can only conclude that this is yet another of her misspoken utterances."

Currently no comments from the Clinton Press department.
