A Special Comment about Lying


Just in case you missed it, I repeat Keith Olbermann's Oct. 6th article here:

SPECIAL COMMENT

While the leadership in Congress has self-destructed over the revelations of an unmatched, and unrelieved, march through a cesspool ...

While the leadership inside the White House has self-destructed over the revelations of a book with a glowing red cover ...

The president of the United States — unbowed, undeterred and unconnected to reality — has continued his extraordinary trek through our country rooting out the enemies of freedom: the Democrats.

Yesterday at a fundraiser for an Arizona congressman, Mr. Bush claimed, quote, “177 of the opposition party said, ‘You know, we don’t think we ought to be listening to the conversations of terrorists.’”

The hell they did.

One hundred seventy-seven Democrats opposed the president’s seizure of another part of the Constitution.

Not even the White House press office could actually name a single Democrat who had ever said the government shouldn’t be listening to the conversations of terrorists.

President Bush hears what he wants.

Tuesday, at another fundraiser in California, he had said, “Democrats take a law enforcement approach to terrorism. That means America will wait until we’re attacked again before we respond.”

Mr. Bush fabricated that, too. [Mr. Olbermann I would have answered "BULLSHIT, Mr. Bush."]

You know President Bush I don't think a law enforcement approach to terrorism is so bad. Obeying the law in a country of laws, isn't such a bad thing, is it?

As long as you understand that, by taking a law enforcement approach, you're giving every terrorist in the world one free shot at us. After 9/11, I don't think that's the approach we should take anymore.
