Why does Bush lie so publicly
when records can be checked. This morning I heard him say that he was the first President to lose his home state. That was bullshit and even Wolfie is calling him on it.

3. Maine iis his home state where he was born, isn't it?
As for the rest of the time he lies, he knows damn well that most broadcast TV and print media is controlled by his cronies - the same media that trumpeted him as a man of sterling character for the last 6yrs.

11. Nope -- the unholy event took place in New Haven, Connecticut
Rumor has it, the moon was blotted out the moment his pinhead skull came into view...

4. Because no one holds him accountable.
Think about a dysfunctional family with an unstable, threatening alcoholic as the father - does anyone stand up to him or does he do whatever the hell he wants? We are all suffering in the dysfunctional United States of America.

20. The GOP didn't buy up control of the media in the 80s and 90s for nothing.
They did it to assure that a Watergate, an IranContra, an S&L, and a BCCI could never get coverage again while Clinton's fleeting girlfriend would generate a media frenzy never seen in the history of this country.

7. Yale, Harvard, the best private schools in the nation.
Yeah, those private schools really turn out well-educated people.

I still wanna meet the one who was assigned to write Georgie's papers and take his tests.

8. Because he's a Liar!
Liar, by Henry Rollins


you think you're gonna to live your life alone
in darkness
and seclusion
yeah I know
you've been out there
tried to mix with those animals
and it just left you full of humiliated confusion
so you stagger back home
and wait for nothing
but the solitary refinement of your room spits you back out onto the street
and now you're desperate
and in need of human contact
and then
you meet me
and you whole world changes
because everything I say is everything you've ever wanted to hear
so you drop all your defenses and you drop all your fears
and you trust me completely
I'm perfect
in every way
cause I make you feel so strong and so powerful inside
you feel so lucky
but your ego obscures reality
and you never bother to wonder why
things are going so well
you wanna know why?
cause I'm a liar
yeah I'm a liar
I'll tear your mind out
I'll burn your soul
I'll turn you into me
I'll turn you into me
cause I'm a liar, a liar
a liar, a liar

I'll hide behind a smile
and understanding eyes
and I'll tell you things that you already know
so you can say
I really identify with you, so much
and all the time that you're needing me
is just the time that I'm bleeding you
don't you get it yet?
I'll come to you like an affliction
and I'll leave you like an addiction
you'll never forget me
you wanna know why?
cause I'm a liar
yeah I'm a liar
I'll rip your mind out
I'll burn your soul
I'll turn you into me
I'll turn you into me
cause I'm a liar, a liar
liar, liar, liar, liar

I don't know why I feel the need to lie
and cause you so much pain
maybe it's something inside
maybe it's something I can't explain
cause all I do
is mess you up and lie to you
I'm a liar
oh, I am a liar

if you'll give me one more chance
I swear that I will never lie to you again
because now I see the destructive power of a lie
they're stronger than truth
I can't believe I ever hurt you
I swear
I will never to you lie again, please
just give me one more chance
I will never lie to you again
I swear
that I will never tell a lie
I will never tell a lie
no, no
ha ha ha ha ha hah haa haa haa haaa
sucker
sucker!
oh, sucker
I am a liar
yeah, I am a liar
yeah I like it
I feel good
ohh I am a liar
yeah
I lie
I lie
I lie
oh, I lie
oh I lie
I lie
yeah
ohhh I'm a liar
I lie
yeah
I like it
I feel good
I'll lie again
and again
I'll lie again and again
and I'll keep lying
I promise

12. He never gets called on it
and if someone does they are hammered to hell for questioning him (Dixie Chicks) who'd want that? Eventually nobody has the guts to out him.

19. Why wouldn't he
he has no regard for decency, no regard for truth, no regard for justice. He hates minorities (and no Condi is not a real black woman. Real black women stand up for their own) and is only concerned with what lines his pockets and the pockets of his friends. People like us...we just get in the way. Why wouldn't he lie?

22. Yet they still castigate Gore for saying he invented the Internet
Which he didn't even actually say! But Bush can spew one obvious lie after another and no one in the corporate media seems to question it. Fortunately, fewer and fewer Americans are fooled by his act.

25. Focus on the little lies and ignore the Big Lies.
Here is a Big Lie:

Secondly, there are such things as roving wiretaps. Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so. It's important for our fellow citizens to understand, when you think Patriot Act, constitutional guarantees are in place when it comes to doing what is necessary to protect our homeland, because we value the Constitution.

President Bush -- April 20, 2004

At the time of this statement NSA was spying on Americans without obtaining a warrent. This spying occured at least 30 times in violation of the FISA Law. These violations are not light weight. They are Felonies.

28. What good would it do him to lie privately (other than to Laura)?
And who checks the records? Hell, how many even remember what he said a few months ago that he now contradicts and claims he didn't say? And make sure about those public records -- have they been since classified? ;-)
