    I never said it was okay because someone else did it.
    You most certainly did...And continue to do so.

    I said it was and doesn't rise to the level of things that you give a pass.
    That is an ideological opinion, and we will never agree on this. But, just as you found conservatives blind for backing Bush, and backing things like the Patriot act, we now find you just as blind in the face of a change to an authoritarian, crony capitalist, socialist redistribution hybrid that Obama is doing and lying about right before your eyes....So, I guess we all only see what we want.

    Again, Mak, revisionist history. Bush took his arguments for the Iraq invasion to Congress, where the resolution was passed overwhelmingly.

    Congress presumably acted on the same information that Bush had, or at any rate should have. So that makes it everybody's war.

    Bush had been in office less than a year. Most of the information had been gathered during previous administrations. IMO, the US had been sold a complete lie by Saddam since Kuwait, and the government bought it all.

    I'm not the one who said the WH told him to lie. He is.

    Me too...Why I never! Gheeze, I remember the chants of "Bush lied, people died", and the infamous wanting to see him and Cheney "frog marched" across the WH lawn....Now I guess lying is just business as usual...Not so much outrage over lies these days....

    Regardless, Geithner, Summers, Paulson, Rubin etc...all foot soldiers for the wealthiest in the world...saving Wall street and the too-big-to-fail banks at the expensive of the American taxpayer.

    I think the key thing is that Geithner was told to lie, and he did. Pretty convenient that now he's a little upset about it. Since leaving government he's developed principles. I'm deeply impressed. Okay. Maybe not. I think he could use a nose job, too, BTW.

    Timothy Geithner, the former secretary of the Treasury Department, says the White House wanted him to lie in scheduled appearances on the Sunday TV talk shows. As Geithner writes in his new memoir:

    “I remember during one Roosevelt Room prep session before I appeared on the Sunday shows, I objected when Dan Pfeiffer wanted me to say Social Security didn’t contribute to the deficit. It wasn’t a main driver of our future deficits, but it did contribute. Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, a phrase I had never heard before. He had to explain that the phrase was code to the Democratic base, signaling that we intended to protect Social Security.”

    Of course, Geithner would not have been the only official from the White House to have misled the American people on the Sunday talk shows. Susan Rice famously came under fire for blaming a terrorist attack on a YouTube video in appearances on the shows.




    LOOKs like that is all the admin knows how to do is TELL BIG FAT LIES.
    The question begs to be asked, Has there ever been a more corrupt administration?
