    - How can you tell, when a politican is lying?

    - His mouth is moving.


    And before you guys work yourself up about this issue who lies more, please consider George Wallace's opinion:

    " There is not a dime's worth of difference between the two parties."
     
  5. "I am not a crook."

    Nixon

    "I don't remember."

    Reagan

    "I am innocent."

    Duke Cunningham

     
  6. Iraq and its nuclear weapons program
    The intelligence on Iraq is good
    "Mission Accomplished"
    We didn't have anything to do with Libby leaking information
    I don't know/never met Abramoff
     
  7. Just as much a democrats lie.

    Iraq and its nuclear weapons program

    Feb. 15, 2006 — ABC News has obtained 12 hours of tape recordings of Saddam Hussein meeting with top aides during the 1990s, tapes apparently recorded in Baghdad's version of the Oval Office.

    ABC News obtained the tapes from Bill Tierney, a former member of a United Nations inspection team who translated them for the FBI. "Because of my experience being in the inspections and being in the military, I knew the significance of these tapes when I heard them," says Tierney. U.S. officials have confirmed the tapes are authentic, and that they are among hundreds of hours of tapes Saddam recorded in his palace office.

    One of the most dramatic moments in the 12 hours of recordings comes when Saddam predicts — during a meeting in the mid-1990s — a terrorist attack on the United States. "Terrorism is coming. I told the Americans a long time before Aug. 2 and told the British as well … that in the future there will be terrorism with weapons of mass destruction." Saddam goes on to say such attacks would be difficult to stop. "In the future, what would prevent a booby-trapped car causing a nuclear explosion in Washington or a germ or a chemical one?" But he adds that Iraq would never do such a thing. "This is coming, this story is coming but not from Iraq."

    Also at the meeting was Iraq's Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz, who said Iraq was being wrongly accused of terrorism. "Sir, the biological is very easy to make. It's so simple that any biologist can make a bottle of germs and drop it into a water tower and kill 100,000. This is not done by a state. No need to accuse a state. An individual can do it."

    The tapes also reveal Iraq's persistent efforts to hide information about weapons of mass destruction programs from U.N. inspectors well into the 1990s. In one pivotal tape-recorded meeting, which occurred in late April or May of 1995, Saddam and his senior aides discuss the fact that U.N. inspectors had uncovered evidence of Iraq's biological weapons program — a program whose existence Iraq had previously denied.

    At one point Hussein Kamel, Saddam's son-in-law and the man who was in charge of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction efforts can be heard on the tapes, speaking openly about hiding information from the U.N.

    "We did not reveal all that we have," Kamel says in the meeting. "Not the type of weapons, not the volume of the materials we imported, not the volume of the production we told them about, not the volume of use. None of this was correct."


    The intelligence on Iraq is good

    At the time, the intelligence was considered good. Even the Democrats thought enough of it to authorize the the President to go to war.

    "Mission Accomplished"

    Well, we did kick their ass. Saddam is sitting in a prison, his two sons are dead, the rest are captured or scattered with wind. And we have not been attacked since.


    We didn't have anything to do with Liby leaking information
    I don't know/never met Abramoff


    Well, then why didn't the special prosecutor charge anyone else?

    As usual, with you low life liberal apologists, its all conjecture.
     
  9. Exactly when did Iraq attack the US?

    I missed that one....

     
  10. I think Republicans are better. I think Democrats lie a lot more though.
