Who's The Real Liar?

As Senator Wilson shouts, “you lie!” at the president during his congressional address, the rest of the right wing party falls in step with the childish call, “liar, liar pants on fire!” Are these the people that want to “take back America?” Do they think they are on the playground yanking a young girl’s pig-tails, or have they realized they’ve been elected to the American government and that they are now supposed to be adults making important decisions for our country’s future? You know, if you want respect, you first have to earn it. And if you want respect, you must first give it, at least to the office that President Obama holds.

Never in the eight years that Bush reigned did you ever hear a democrat heckle him during a speech, and if anything, Bush rightly would have earned the title Liar. I have to wonder, what in the world did President Obama ever do to “earn” the title of liar? You may disagree with his politics (which I find even ridiculous as he has worked tirelessly for bi-partisanship) but when has he EVER lied to the American people? Did he lie to us about WMDs in Iraq? Did he bring us into a needless war in Iraq and lie about their link to 9/11? Did he lie to Americans about the real cost of the wars? Did he lie to the American public about not torturing prisoners at Gitmo? Did he lie about 80% of the detainees at Gitmo being involved in terrorist movements? Did he lie about illegally wire-tapping the American citizens? Did he mysteriously finagle not one but two elections? Did he lie about “being caught off guard” when the levees failed in New Orleans? Did he lie about “keeping us safe from terrorists” all the while knowing that 9/11 happened on his watch? Is Obama the one who ignored the nuclear build-up in North Korea and Iran? Is Obama the one that made horrible energy policies that led to record gas and oil prices? Is Obama the one responsible for the record deficit and the worst recession since the depression? Is Obama the one that failed on education with “no child left behind?” No! This all happened under Bush, hence, if anyone ever deserved the title of liar, it would be him. Through all of that, we still were able to give Bush respect because of at least the office he held. The hypocrisy here is thick, don’t you think? Where in the world was Senator Wilson when Bush embarrassingly fumbled through every speech and bold-faced lied to us? Guess he was quietly holding on to Bush’s coat tails as his pockets, and his party’s pockets, were continuously filled by lobbyist! It doesn’t really matter what Obama says, or does. The right-wingers are just in love with opposition at every corner. They have no intention of working together for the betterment of this country!
