“I am a uniter, not a divider”
Thus was the first (?) lie uttered, almost like a ceremonial first pitch. George had no intention of uniting anyone, of course. Like all the Republicans, was out to loot the government and maybe start a war or two to prove how tough he was. It goes without saying that if you are going to loot the government you are going to have to tell a few lies along the way. Just like starting wars, it is Tradition for Republicans!
George Bush is a liar.
“And we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons.” Dick Cheney, March 16, 2003, NBC Meet the Press interview with Vice President Cheney.
Dick Cheney is a liar.
In front of the 9/11 Commission, in front of House Oversight, in front of Senate oversight, and just about anywhere else you can think of Condi Rice has lied her ass off. As did Alberto “Fredo” Gonzales. Hell if we had an actual Congress with actual powers he would have, should have, been impeached for perjury. Don Rumsfeld lied even when his lips WEREN’T moving. From top to bottom, the Republicans are bald faced liars, spinners and deceivers, the list goes on and on…(see below!)
And of course, John McCain and Sarah Palin are currently trying to set a record (apparently) for most lies, flip flops, back tracks, prevarications, weasel words, insinuendo, (yeah, I had to make up a whole new word!) and just plain whoppers in a single campaign. Hell, even KARL ROVE says so!
But finally, FINALLY, the traditional media seems to be catching on and willing to call McCain and Palin on their lies. Will this be contagious? Will the CorpMedia now go back and review the last eight years? (or 30, or back to Nixon?)
Republicans are liars. Period. They will say and do anything to get into power and then…..screw everything….and everybody….up. They are not JUST liars, they are also incompetent. In fact the only thing the Republicans are NOT incompetent at is…..lying. But apparently they have even lost that skill now. When ROVE criticizes you for bad lying, you know it is all over. All the media has to do now is to be honest with the American people, keep pointing out the lies and spin, and this election is over. All the American voter has to do is wake up and smell the Bullshit…and the election is over. Heck it is even possible the The Republicans could be over. Americans don’t LIKE lying liars.
Don’t hold your breath, but DO raise your voice and Yell It Loud: Republicans are Liars.
