It’s a familiar refrain, “Bush lied, people died.”
There is something that has bothered me about this classic liberal chant. I thought that Bush was an idiot? Bush was billed by liberals as not only the dumbest man to have ever run for president, but possibly the dumbest person to ever run for any public office in the history of the republic. Yet for all of his mental deficiencies, he was clever enough to hoodwink many of the Democrats in Congress to support the war in Iraq? If that’s true, what does that say about those Democrats in Congress that supported the war? Are they all gullible or just stupid?
Fast forward. Now we look to our Madam Speaker.
The CIA lied…
So now Nancy Pelosi was duped by the CIA? She wants us all to believe that she had no idea that terrorists were being waterboarded. CIA Director Leon Panetta, no pal of the Bush Administration, defended the agency and wrote that Pelosi was briefed about enhanced interrogation techniques back in 2002. So once again the question is; Madam Speaker are you gullible or just stupid?
Do you start to see a pattern here? If you are a liberal and live outside the beltway, are you paying attention to anything that your leaders are saying? I know that if the truth be told, many libs would find North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad more credible than former President George W. Bush. If it is true and Congressional Democrats were easily deceived by the “lies” of an “idiot” like President Bush, can we trust them to evaluate the statements made by Jong-il or Ahmadinejad about nuclear arms?
You would think that liberals would start to question why Democrats in Congress seem to believe and support policies that would be very unpopular with Code Pink and MoveOn.org, until they are called out. The classic liberal defense is that Bush lied to them. Now Democrats in Congress can take a dump on officials in the CIA and claim that they too are liars. Is this believable? Are my liberal friends outside the beltway paying attention? Do you believe what Pelosi is saying? If your answer is yes I have a question for you.
Are you gullible or just stupid?
