How many people died because GWB and his administration lied about Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction?
How many people died because Reagan sold weapons to Iran? How many people died because the DEA at the time was instructed by Reagan administration officials to look the other way when the Contras smuggled cocaine into this country, while at the same time, Reagan was fighting the so called war on drugs and incarcerating american citizens for far lesser drug crimes.
Politicians lie-they all do, on both sides. Your guys are no more righteous than my guys.
Who said GWB lied? he had evidence that there were WMD there. I am sorry it didn't pan out the way he wanted it too. Heck I could provide a number of quotes from liberals that said he had them.
Fast and furious was Obama's attempt to cause so much gun havoc that which in turn he would use to enact his fucked up gun control ideas.
At least with Iran/contra Reagan was trying to get funds/weapons to anti communistic forces, not trying to cover up a blow job or trying to take gun rights away from people. (really important subjects to be sure)
So the ends justify the means? He was lying to cover up his own hypocrisy, in that the Contras that he called "Freedom Fighters" were really just drug dealing thugs who committed atrocities in the name of anti-communism. At the same time, Reagan declared a war on drugs and incarcerated americans for the very same crimes being committed by people he was arming and funding.
Don't you guys know time standards for liberals? 5 minutes is actually 5 years, and one time is actually 100 times. It falls into the same category as dog time..
“The only time he shot skeet was for President’s Cup,” said the source, referring to a shooting competition tradition involving the presidential Marine guards. “I was there. He stayed for about five minutes, and couldn’t leave fast enough.”So, a one-time, five minute exposure to shooting would not constitute something done "all of the time", unless, of course, you are playing Clintonian games with the language.
BTW, the definition of "is": verb 1. 3rd person singular present indicative of be.
1. to exist or live: Shakespeare's “To be or not to be” is the ultimate question. 2. to take place; happen; occur: The wedding was last week.
3. to occupy a place or position: The book is on the table.
4. to continue or remain as before: Let things be.
5. to belong; attend; befall: May good fortune be with you.
You Clintonistas seemed to have a problem with that.
The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein's nuclear program — a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium — reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.
The removal of 550 metric tons of "yellowcake" — the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment — was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam's nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.
What's now left is the final and complicated push to clean up the remaining radioactive debris at the former Tuwaitha nuclear complex about 12 miles south of Baghdad — using teams that include Iraqi experts recently trained in the Chernobyl fallout zone in Ukraine.
The claim that "they all do it" is a crock, that simply lowers the bar for all politicians. And the fact is that while many of them do lie, we can always count on Democrats not to care when the lie is told by a Democrat, no matter how much that lie insults our intelligence, or how base the motives of the liar are.
That puts hussein in the same category as the phony Vietnam "hero veterans". He's trying to portray himself as someone he isn't in order to gain, in his mind, a measure of self respect that he lacks. Backdrop that against all the "me" and "I" you hear in his teleprompted speeches. He wants to be something bigger than what he knows of himself.Quote:
“Have you ever fired a gun?
Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.
He's a phony, and deep inside, he's insecure because he knows that he's a phony. A lot of that came out in his autobiography. He steals credit from those around him who succeed, and blames anything that could be laid at his feet as president as somebody else's fault.
I wish a psychological profile of him would be made public. He's a sick man, and he has to lie.
This is the one statement that proves my(and your) theory that liberals are nothing more than teenagers who refused to grow up. Actually, they're 7 year olds who refuse to grow up. I mean, talk about a group of people who you constantly have to tell "if they jumped off a cliff, would you do it too?"Quote:
