bush deception watch
P.L.A. has a catalog of an even dozen instances in which the Integrity President has played a little loose with the truth--and author Dwight Meredith didn't even consider statements on Iraq!
Meredith takes issue with a recent WaPo article that concluded that Democrats run a risk in attacking Bush on his (tattered) credibility:
When Willie Sutton was asked why he robbed banks he reportedly responded “because that’s where the money is.” Mr. Bush should be attacked on the grounds of honesty and credibility because he so often lies, distorts and deceives.
In another post regarding to the notion of average tax cuts, Meredith also noted that by the same logic, he's eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame without having played a day in the major leagues:
Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays and I average 532 home runs.
Pete Rose, Ty Cobb, Stan Musial and I average 3018 hits. Cap Anson, Lou Gehrig, Jimmy Foxx and I average almost 1500 RBIs. Ricky Henderson, Lou Brock and I average 780 stolen bases.
My prowess is not limited to offense. Cy Young, Walter Johnson and I average 309 wins. Nolan Ryan, Steve Carlton and I average almost 3300 strikeouts.
Even the casual fan knows that a player with those statistics is a lock for induction into the Hall of Fame. I would like to thank Mr. Bush for helping me see that no matter how long the odds, I should never have doubted the possibility of making the Hall of Fame.
And House Democrats have Bush fibs caught on tape!
