Sounds simple enough – doesn’t it? Well apparently not, and this is where we go to the latest escapades of one Liz Cheney:
“I think that what President Bush used to do is do it without the cameras. And I don’t understand sort of showing up with the White House Press Pool with photographers and asking family members if you can take pictures. That’s really hard for me to get my head around…It was a surprising way for the president to choose to do this.”
Catch the lie in there? If not then read what I posted yesterday:
The dramatic image of a president on the tarmac was a portrait not witnessed in years. Former President George W. Bush spent lots of time with grieving military families but never went to Dover to meet the remains coming off the cargo plane. Obama did so with the weight of knowing he may soon send more troops off to war.
And as Rachel Maddow just reported, a spokesperson for George Bush confirmed that he never once went to Dover.
Let’s face it – Liz Cheney is a liar. Almost every time she has appeared on the TV or in some interview she has been caught lying. So why does the media keep turning to such an unreliable source? Once can only conclude that they must hope her lies won’t be caught by those dirty Cheeto eating, PJ wearing bloggers, but they are. So I no longer blame Liz Cheney for lying. Let’s face – that’s what she is. Who I do blame is the brains in the media that choose to let her air her lies. They are like the dealers on the corner saying “come on – you can go ahead and take some of this crack. Just remember where you got it”.
