Edwards truth-shading was nothing compared to Dick'sThe LA Times accuses both Cheney and Edwards of stretching the truth. But read the story. See what Cheney lied about. Compare that to Edwards. Edwards didn't cause thousands of deaths. The scope of truth-shading by Edwards is nothing compared to the whoppers that Cheney keeps telling.
Rivals' Bold Assertions Are Debatable: "One of Cheney's boldest assertions during the debate was to insist, 'I have not suggested there was a connection between Iraq and 9/11.'
It is true that Cheney has never flatly asserted that Iraq was complicit in the Sept. 11 plot, but on many occasions, he has made remarks leaving the impression that Iraq may have been aware or involved.
In an interview on NBC's 'Meet the Press' in September 2003, Cheney described Iraq as the 'geographic base' for those behind the Sept. 11 attacks. 'If we're successful in Iraq,' he said, 'then we will have struck a major blow right at the heart of the base, if you will, the geographic base of the terrorists who had us under assault now for many years, but most especially on 9/11.'"
So, yeah. all you right wingers keep pointing out the little white ones Edwards told. But while you're at it, why don't you ask the mother's of the over 1000 dead service men and women what they think about Cheney lying about Al Qaeda and Iraq. Tell me the lies about Halliburton aren't as bad as Edward's taking Lugar's comment about incompetence out of context.
Then I'd like all you right wing freaks to read that story twice before you send me any cut and paste letters about shitting down my neck (pitiful freaks can't even think of your own original death threats). To paraphrase your assholes, if you want a government that lies to you and keeps everything secret, move to North Korea.
