Today Chris Mathews devoted his entire show to presidential lies. The entire show focused on Nixon & Clinton. Donâ€™t we have questions about more recent presidential lies?
Does this ring a bell Mr. Mathews? “There’s no doubt that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction. There’s no doubt he’s amassing them to use …. I think [weapons inspector] David Kay will find more evidence [of weapons of mass destruction] as he goes forward …. Itâ€™s a hard task, but I have got great confidence that he can do this.” - Dick Cheney. I know, we are talking about presidents, not vice presidentsâ€¦but in this case I am talking about the president, Dick Cheney.
Cheney said that there was â€œno doubtâ€ about the Iraq WMD situation. There is no doubt that Cheney was telling a blatant lie. Donâ€™t you think that Cheneyâ€™s little lie which has resulted in 10s of thousands of deaths, the destabilization of the Middle East and an increase in global terrorism might be a little more relevant in todayâ€™s world than Nixon references or Clintonâ€™s lies that were meant to protect himself from personal embarrassment? Nice little distracting and deceptive propaganda piece Mathews! Your contributions to the corporate mediaâ€™s effort to paint a false reality are notable. Whatâ€™s next for you, an in depth expose and national discussion of Pinocchio? Think about it!
