Yet Another ‘Big Lie’…

I’ve been reading a book of short stories by Neil Gaiman titled Smoke and Mirrors and it contains a story called “The Goldfish Pool and Other Stories”. It’s about a trip to Los Angeles where the behavior of the inhabitants is nicely summed up by an observation about goldfish: They are so damn stupid that they swim around the pool thinking “I’ve never been here before” and so even things they have done a thousand times seem new to them. The thing is, the story isn’t just about Los Angeles and the cult around the movie industry; it applies to everyone in this country. If it didn’t, George W. Bush wouldn’t think for a moment that he could pull off yet another Big Lie. It’s really unbelievable that he is trying this again… If you have the memory of a goldfish and have forgotten that the same tactic was used on the topics of WMDs and the supposed Saddam/Al-Qaeda link. Follow the link below, and try to remember what you see and read on Election Day.

Bush: ‘We’ve Never Been Stay The Course’

During an interview today on ABC’s This Week, President Bush tried to distance himself from what has been his core strategy in Iraq for the last three years. George Stephanopoulos asked about James Baker’s plan to develop a strategy for Iraq that is “between ’stay the course’ and ‘cut and run.’”

Bush responded, ‘We’ve never been stay the course, George!’.

Why on earth isn’t the President of the United States bald-face lying to the American people an impeachable offense? I’m pretty sure it was considered one when Clinton was in office…
