Bush Jokes about WMD - video

You Lie!

Since Hillary Clinton's testimony at Thursday's 'Benghazi Hearing' the conservatives I'm running across can't call her "liar" often enough (not that they already hadn't) yet I suppose that if no Republican politician had ever told a lie...such as "Let's invade, bomb, and occupy Iraq because Saddam Hussein has WMDs" (weapons of mass destruction)... such a charge against Hillary might carry more weight. But perhaps they don't realize that each time they call Secretary Clinton a liar they remind the public that all politicians lie--it's what they do.

Here's a video from 2004 that is in as bad a taste as anything can be--Bush trying to make a joke out of his own lie that scammed us into war in spite of the dire consequences that others had to suffer and still suffer because of Bush's deliberate war criminal sorriness and the hubris of a bunch of neocon jack*sses with an obsession for grasping world domination and plundering natural resources like oil and poppy fields:

Georgia congressman says Wilson outburst planned

This from the CNN Ticker explains quite fully what I intuited about Joe Wilson's well-timed "You Lie!" outburst during the president's Address to a Joint Session of Congress on Sept 9.

And quelle surprise! It comes from a Georgia congressman! Why, I didn't know it possible for this particular native Georgian (moi) not to have to be embarassed by the 'conservative' politicians who hail from this region and astound me and others here with their odd views and simply annoying southern drawls.

So consider me knocked over by a feather on this one! But Jimmy Carter in the fray?

When I was an impressionable teenager I had occasion to shake his very freckly hand and was quite horrified - it felt like a limp lobster to me.

Now, of course, I appreciate the work that he and his wife do and have done through the Carter Center, Habitat for Humanity, and other projects on behalf of Human Rights all over the globe.

Guess that's a teenager for you. But Mr. Carter still seems to be part of the New World Order agenda to me.

You have a message from the President (video)

This arrived in my Inbox and it's got your name on it, too.

It's about Health Care/Insurance Reform, as you guessed.

And to answer TC's query as to why Joe Wilson's outburst, "You Lie!" has not been mentioned on Stars Over Washington, it's for two reasons:

1. his rudeness is a distraction from the real issues and I don't like to promote the GOP, the party that lied us into the Iraq invasion, but is against health care for all Americans;

2. Rep. Wilson misspoke, as they love to say in Politics: he should have said, "We Lie!"

Now that would be a very basic truth worth paying close attention to.
