Group Lie

Mr. Scott asks if it is now the standard mode of the Democratic Party to lie and condone lying. I ask too.

If you lean liberal, in the progressive sense, or are simply a registered Democrat, do you condone lying?

This strikes at the heart of my being. Truth first!

When Bush “lied” about Iraq’s WMDs, the whole world was agreeing. While the facts were proven errant, there was ample evidence found to show why everyone thought otherwise. It wasn’t a lie so much as an illusion, even intentional deceptions on the part of Iraqis. Our current President simply operates in narrative mode, fact free. There is never a consideration for truth and facts from the current administration. Never.

The current administration from top to bottom sticks to the narrative no matter what. Enough people will follow, they seem to believe, to keep things moving in the intended direction. So far, the strategy seems to be working for them. They are playing us for fools, and we continue in shame. (Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Shame on all of us.)
