This blog used to be about debt. Now it's about a few more things. But really, it all comes back to debt. Trust me.

Lying Liar In Our Midst

Joe Lieberman, we hardly knew ye. Did you get a show on FoxNews yet?

I don't fault him for sincerely believing in the Iraq war. He's entitled to his misguided opinion. But is it really necessary to flat out lie?

In the last 10 minutes on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, he spouted the following lies and insanities:

1. That Obama wants to withdraw IMMEDIATELY REGARDLESS OF THE FACTS ON THE GROUND. What politician would make such a ridiculous statement? Even W, our fundamentalist in chief, never came out and said we would STAY regardless of the facts on the ground. We just knew it through his actions.

What do we know through Obama's actions? That he is a pragmatist. That he listens. That dissent is encouraged. And that he has said he'd leave RESPONSIBLY. In fact, I myself have been annoyed by his broken record stump speech line: "We must be as careful getting out as we were careless getting in."

2. That "historically" there have been attacks in the first year of an administration. His scientific sample size? A whole two administrations. Clinton in 93. Bush in 2001.

If I were a breakfast person, I would have lost it in disgust.
