Conservative Lie Of The Day: Everything That Comes Out Of Dick Cheney’s Mouth

dick-cheney-2012-241x300Refusing to accept reality, or just hoping that no one will notice how deceitful he really is, Dick Cheney once again trotted out that old chestnut about how Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda were in cahoots with one another. This was first brought up by Cheney and the Bush administration during the run up to the Iraq war in an effort to sell the American Public on the invasion. The lie was part of the plan to fool the public into believing that Saddam was an accomplice in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Then he goes on to defend the use of torture during the Bush administration because he claims it helped get Osama bin Laden. That has also been proven false by the official report but he keeps on repeating it because he has ‘to defend my point of view’. The fact that he keeps talking about these things now, even after they have been thoroughly debunked, only proves that Cheney remains cravenly unapologetic for his disastrous decisions and undeterred in his crusade to justify those decisions through any means necessary. It was a lie then, a lie now and will still be a lie after he is dead and gone.

About Mike Burns

For years I was a self described independent. I liked the idea that America was built on the powerful idea of compromise. Politics at its best was an exercise in give and take that at least tried to be respectful of both sides of an issue. However, since the rise of right wing talk radio and Fox News, this no longer seems possible. For me, it is time to fight back in my small way. The conservatives have had their way with the truth for too long without enough of us standing up and saying no more lies. Maybe this blog will make a small difference, maybe not. The main thing is that it will satisfy my need to speak out against conservative hate and hypocrisy. Mike Burns Google+
