GOP Official says Dick Cheney Lied to Him about Iraq

Dick Cheney, an angry, evil liar who reminds me of... angry, evil liar John McCainThe Washington Post takes a break from talking about McCain/Palin lies to remind us that the whole damn Republican party leadership lies and has been doing so, dangerously, for years — and a high-ranking GOPper admits it. They even lie to each other in order to serve their evil, un-American agenda. Party of “reform,” my foot. I can’t believe so many Americans are falling for the crap these jokers are shoveling and willing to accept at least four more years of the same disrespect and deception…

Remember, dears, friends don’t let their friends vote Republican…

A GOP congressional leader who was wavering on giving President Bush the authority to wage war in late 2002 said Vice President Dick Cheney misled him by saying that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had direct personal ties to al-Qaida terrorists and was making rapid progress toward a suitcase nuclear weapon, according to a new book by Washington Post investigative reporter Barton Gellman.

Cheney’s accusations, de scribed by former House majority leader Richard Armey of Texas, came in a highly classified one-on-one briefing in Room H-208, the vice president’s hideaway office in the Capitol. 

Armey said Cheney told him that the threat from Iraq was actually “more imminent than we want to portray to the public at large.”

There was no intelligence to support the vice president’s private assertions, Gellman wrote, and they “crossed so far beyond the known universe of fact that they were simply without foundation.”

Cheney misled about Iraq, GOP official says.

  1. The genesis of Barack Obama’s slide in recent polls is debatable, but the numbers are not. Is it the Palin effect? A post-convention GOP bounce? The barrage of misleading ads like “Education,” that claimed Obama’s one accomplishment in education was that he voted for sex ed for kids? Or perhaps it’s because of the focus over distractions like “lipstick on a pig.” Whatever the attribution, 50 days from the election, Obama is inserting some urgency in his plea to voters.

    Barack Obama’s slide in recent polls was unexpected to him, how could he be prepared and adequately respond to John McCain’s swiping his lead by appointing Governor Palin as his running mate?

    Change isn’t about slogans, it’s about substance. If Obama could not handle this how can he handle the presidency next? Clearly he cannot.

  2. Who among us predicted the Palin phenomenon? Forgive me if I disagree with you. But thanks for reading and replying. You’re welcome anytime.
