    I dont know whats more embarrassing...their complete ignoring of every comment made by damn near every elected democrat since 1992 til around 2004, or their excuse that really...they were all just tricked by that mad ****ing GENIUS George Bush.

    I really wish they'd get their stories straight...Either GWB was a bumbling fool that needed help tying his own shoes, or he was a master political liar that exhibited mind control over demo's to vote his way.....

    Which one?

    I think they can go with both. George Bush was a bumbling fool...and that just shows how completely ****ing moronic the other guys are. I actually kinda like that narrative. Bush needs help tying his shoes...but every elected democrat since Bill Clinton needs help wiping the drool from their chin.

    Would I rather our government was always truthful? No, not really. I've got enough to worry about.
    The point is that this establishes this administration's penchant for making up lies to tell the Sunday morning news shows, just like they did with Susan Rice.

Not the part were Geithner explains how the desire to balance the budget came far too early and cost the economy 1% growth per year.

    Not, you know, what the book was actually about. This ****ing paragraph. And you know, the sad part is I expect no more from such a rudderless and ideologically bankrupt movement grasping for straws to rally the base.

    I can see the tea party chain emails flying, never mind that there is no there there. We always knew this guy was a liar. Deceiver. Always knew there was something about him not to like.
    Have you become so accustomed to lies being told under this administration that you no longer consider it newsworthy?

    You are welcome to provide proof that Congress knew "Curveball" was the primary source.

    Back when Cheney thought invading Iraq would be lunacy and Hannity was screeching at the top of his lungs at the very notion of the United States attacking Iraq. Funny how the roles reversed. Of course, we didn't find any WMD back then either.

    Nice attempt at diversion but you didn't respond to the post. Congress has oversight responsibilities and those on the oversight committees have access to the same classified information as the President. Those are the same people who were quoted in confirming that Saddam Hussein had WMD so your outrage over Bush is misguided at best and typical liberalism at its worst.

    I've never seen any proof that the source of that information was revealed to Congress. If Bush sent Colin Powell to the UN without telling him who the source was or his background, and it is clear that he did, then I have no reason to believe Congress was informed.

    Then you have no idea what the Oversight Committee does or what they see yet buy what you are told. Why don't you do some research and find out what the Senate and House Oversight Committees do and what material is available to them? Stop buying what you are told and get the facts

    Like I said, you are welcome to provide proof that Congress was informed "Curveball" was the primary source. I haven't found any.
