I just read the Salon magazine article about Paul Ryan's GOP Convention speech:
Here are links to two articles about Mitt Romney's lies:
How can they expect people to vote for them when they lie so much? Here is a link to PolitiFact, a good fact-checking site:
Condoleeza Rice famously lied about Iraq to persuade Americans to support the Bush invasion. She said there might be a "mushroom cloud" over Washington, D.C., if we didn't take out Saddam Hussein. What a crock of GOP poop.
Now here she was this week addressing the GOP Convention as a Republican heroine:
My God. What is the world coming to?
There is an old saying: You can't trust a liar to tell you the time of day. And my God. These liars want to lead the country!
When George W. Bush was president, the joke was, how did you tell when he was lying? His lips were moving.
Do they really think the American people are that stupid?
The weird thing to me is that the GOP is the party that keeps talking about American exceptionalism. How can we take pride in our country when leaders of a major political party lie all the time?
Do they want us to believe that America is great because of these lies? Are they just trying to hoodwink the people? Do they think we can't handle the truth? Or don't they want us to know the truth?
The Republicans amaze me. I was raised to think that people who lie and cheat and steal are the same as criminals. Perhaps these big-time liars should be put in jail. If these GOP leaders got a week in jail for every lie they told, they'd be in jail for the rest of their lives.
Maybe that is where they belong.
