The real secret service said the claims of the uniformed door guard that wrote the Hillary book were "laughable." Why do conservatives...?
...always rely on these types of Swift Boat books to steal elections?
I'm guessing what this was is scuttlebutt and rumours he heard while working there, at most.
go scr** yourself question moving jerkoff.
The Swift Boat guys admitted they were lying there. The main guy in the book never even served with Kerry it turned out.

Conservatives don't educate themselves. They get their news from conservative media, they get their "facts" from conservative biased sources. They only pay attention and absorb the information that supports the beliefs they already hold. They ignore the side of the argument that doesn't agree with what they already think. It's the definition of ignorance.
Some liberals are guilty of this too, but it's definitely more prevalent amongst conservatives.

Really? He's far from the only one who has said that Hillary is not a good person.

Conservatism used to be a well-thought-out, consistent, even reasonable point of view. I never agreed with them much but decades ago cons had something to say, an argument to make. But since the 'Reagan Revolution' conservatism has really deteriorated. It's not about logic and ideas anymore, it's about anger and hatred and loathing. It encourages its believers to believe what they want to believe, not to be confused by facts.
Consequently, if someone says Hillary shot a man in Reno just to watch him die, 90% of Republicans will believe it totally without any evidence needed. They desperately want to believe anything negative about her, true or not.
They're doing with Hillary the same thing they did with her husband. Fill the air with spurious accusations, make up new ones all the time, and keep repeating the same ever-growing laundry list of lies even after most of them are discredited, in hopes that people will come to think that even though none of them can be proven, she must have done -something- bad.
Spend 10 minutes listening to Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly and you'll see that Republican listeners/viewers don't want to be taught HOW to think, they want to be taught WHAT to think. They have a low tolerance for 'cognitive dissonance'. They don't want to hear several sides of a story and think about it for themselves, they want to hear one side and believe that uncritically. This is why around 40% of Republican voters still believe Obama is a Muslim, born in Kenya.

Be careful there. While I believe that he uniformed officer was full of sh!t, the accounts of the Swift Boat vets were spot on.

It is hard to dismiss the claims about Hillarys behavior when they have been repeated by many people. Like Dick Mossis and Stephanopolous.
Is everyone lying?

Well if you are the type of voter who won't take the time to learn the truth about what is being said, then you deserve the rotten government you might end up with.

Because their voters don't fact check

Well, not only that, but...
What does it say about the integrity of a member of the secret service that he would even write a ''tell-all'' book?
It's kind of basic in this kind of job that a sense of absolute discretion is part of why they pay you the big bucks.
