The Lie That Broke The Camel's Back!

(Our 43rd president proves himself to be The Fibber-in-Chief!)
Fool us once, shame on you! Fool us twice, shame on us! Fool us five times, shame on all of us for still believing we can trust you. Oh, my President: Where forth art thou? A lie is a lie is a lie by any other name and you, sir, you daddy's boy, have told some real doozies! Now Playing in America: George W. Bush...as The FIBSTER!
Never, since the days of the ultimate falsifier, Richard M. Nixon, have so many of us expressed such extreme disgust for information from the supposed leader of the free world. It's not the credibility gap, it's the bold faced lies Junior Bush tells, that really piss us off! It's no wonder some countries and populations around the world really don't trust
If someone I know lies to me, I learn not to trust them. That's how I've learned to relate to our current president. I wasn't all that quick to condemn him, but now, I know I wish I had been. Here are some of Bush Junior's lies and deceptions that have now made me think so very little of him:
#1. " My administration' ll behave more ethically than the previous one! "
With more White House aides arrested in Bush's administration than the last three added together, this was either teenage alpha boasting, or outright bullsh*t! Add to that, some tasty pictures of the convicted lobbyist, Jack Abramoff and our President, just now surfacing.
#2. " As a Compassionate Conservative, I'm a Uniter...NOT a Divider! "
More red state extremists are at the throats of blue state yahoos now than at any time in
#3. " I will secure
Bush Jr. cannot even secure his own twin daughters from illegally buying beer, and/or stealing prescription pills, much less stop every Jaun, Jorge' or Abdulla from walking across the Mexican border, carrying in cocaine, biological weapons, or some suitcase nukes. Again, the worst part of this lie, is that he already knows it's a lie.
#4. " No one in The White House is involved with ousting a CIA agent!
If someone here was involved, they will no longer work for me! "
Grand jury testimony and Scooter Libby's trial have revealed half of Junior's senior staff either knew about it, or were actively conspiring to punish the agent and her husband. Including our Vice President. It reminds me of Dick Nixon's White House plumbers unit. ickk!
#5. " I am not into nation building! "
But Bush will shamefully spend a billion dollars of our money in
#6. " Saddam has WMD's! "
#7. " The Iraqis will pay for the war and their reconstruction! "
Who's the President kidding now? To me, the great irony here is that Dubya got hoisted on his on photo-op, while posing as a pilot!
#9. " Hey Brownie! You're doin' a great job! "
If this wasn't a lie when he said it, the facts show it now as untrue. That FEMA jerk, Brownie, should be forced to work in the city doing repairs, until it's fixed!
#10. " We will re-build
Was Bush's failure in words and in deeds here incompetence, or was it back-handed racism? After all this time, by far not enough has been done. Dubya has effectively ethnically cleansed this fair town for generations.
For me, the lie that broke the camel's back was when President Bush said those that oppose his war in
George Bush Jr. also does impressions. Have you seen his impression of, of all people, General Alexander Haig? President Bush does an excellent Haig (shades of Nixon) every time anyone asks him any kind of question: " I'm in charge! I'm in charge! I'm the decider! Don't worry, I'm in charge!"
Yeah, Dubya is in charge. Just like when General Custer was in charge. And just like when the Captain of the Titannic was in charge. As the modern day equivalent of a mule-skinner in the 7th
OK, I do admit that I expect politicians to lie. And I understand Bush is from

After a good night at a comedy show, isnít it amazing how hard you laughed then, but the next day, you canít recall the name, or place the face? (Geez, that babe with the tight skirt? Or that guy with those red shoes? Or the guy in the robe that did that silly rap parody?) Those are the folks this weird treatise is all about.
Gosh, with all the holiday blues going around, and with all of Uncle Sam's woes these days, it's become real easy to get down on ourselves lately. But don't. It's really not that bad for us. Cheer up everybody!
From Subic Bay in the Philippines, to a 2,000 seat arena on the Island of Diego Garcia in the Pacific Ocean, when I have been onstage doing comedy shows for our Armed Forces, Iíve known I had two things in common with them: the first was we were all proud Americans, the second was this far away, we all missed home!
Something Wanna Trade Your Citizenship For Mine? (Walk A Mile in My Red Shoes!) If you are a citizen of a country that is not America, I wish you well! I really do! It is too bad that I can not say the same for some of your governments.
