    A lie on a Sunday would be for example: Saddam as WsMD and we know where they are or they will treat us like liberators or the fundamentals of the economy are strong.....
    Well one thing for sure the left always has that one lie bush told. The right will have 65 Outrageous Lies by President Obama. SInce this video has been created i am sure we are well over 100 by now.

    I agree - at that point SS had on balance reduced deficits/debt by a cumulative $2-$3 TRILLION and wasn't predicted to be a net contributor to the debt for at least two decades when the trust fund ran out.

    The way Timmy and friends (but kissers to the elites) look at it is as soon as SS turns over and all the surpluses it ran after the Reagan/Greenspan "fix" in the 1980s stop, and there is a current year shortfall between SS contributions and payouts to retiring baby boomers, then SS "contributes to the deficit." Of course that's only true if you look at it as a pay as you go system. Which is fine, but then we should no longer EVER discuss the trust fund again, SS going 'bankrupt' etc. and SS tax increases intended to 'solve' the 'problem' of SS were/are nothing more than tax increases on working people.

    You're referring to WMD assertions as 'one lie?' LMAO. All that 'one lie' did was justify a war that will cost trillions, kill a few thousand troops, injure 100s of thousands of others, and result in 100s of thousands of deaths of Iraqis and others in the ME.

    I agree.

    Everyone who told that lie should pay, starting with Clinton & his cabinet members who insisted that Iraq had WMDs.

    One big lie told by dozens and dozens and dozens.

    It was not a lie. It was a mistake.

    Let me be clear i did not vote for Bush in either election. I was not and still not a Bush fan. But until you realize that the Office of president is only a puppet placeholder you will not be able to change anything. You keep to your right and left paradigm all you want but i assure you they are working together. To bring about what their masters tell them.
