How Do You Know When a Republi-CON is Lying?

That begs the question, when does a Republi-con not lie to win election?

Read the Washington Post, Rove, Chamber ads widely debunked as false or misleading, which outlines the "scope of the dishonesty and distortion that's flowing from the conservative side . . . a massive disinformation campaign flooding airwaves across the country that could change the outcome of major races and shift the balance of power in Congress, funded by money from undisclosed sources, justified with still more falsehoods and disinformation. "

Is W. The Worst

UPDATE VI: $10+ T national debt, $1.2 T deficit this year, 2.6 M jobs lost in the last year swelling the ranks of the unemployed to more than 11 million people, failing economy, mortgage crisis, incompetent leadership, overstretched military, an unnecessary and disastrous war, politicized government, torture as government policy, Chinese ascension, Russian resurgence, oil addiction (did I miss anything). How soon we forget. Read CNN, Was Bush better president than Obama?

How will history judge George W. Bush's presidency?

Bush certainly has no regrets. Read Washington Post, Regret-Me-Not and watch the interview at Camp David by ABC's Charles Gibson.

There has even been an Oxford-style debate of the proposition "Bush 43 Is the Worst President of the Past 50 Years," in which Karl Rove defended Bush.

See also NPR, Is Bush The Worst President Of The Past 50 Years?

And answer the poll on the right and tell me what you think.

UPDATE: A Wall Street Journal poll (question 27), when asked to compare Mr. Bush with the past several presidents, two percent of respondents said he was one of the best; 18 percent said he was better than most; 30 percent said he was not as good as most; and 48 percent said he was definitely worse than most.

UPDATE, Part II: Certainly some Iraqis aren't happy with Bush. During Bush's surprise visit to Iraq in December, an Iraqi journalist denounced Bush as a 'dog' and threw his shoes at the President, an insult in Islamic society. (You might remember Iraqis beating the statue of Saddam with shoes after it was toppled 5 years ago.)



Somebody should have told Bush that the President of the United States takes an oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."


Don't forget to vote in the poll.

Exposing Republi-CONism

UPDATE III: And there is also the family values (NOT) of Arizona House candidate Ben Quayle, a/k/a Brock Landers, the fictional sidekick to porn star Dirk Diggler in the film "Boogie Nights,", and real-life son of former vice president Dan Quayle

UPDATE II: Lest you forgot, there is also the serial adulterer, now Republi-con South Carolina gubernatorial candidate. Read the Washington Post, Blogger details alleged tryst with SC gov nominee.

UPDATE: First a candidate who loves pornographic emails while lecturing about family values and cashing rent checks from gay clubs, now a candidate who enjoys wearing Nazi attire. Who will the Republi-con nominate next? Read The Atlantic, Why is This GOP House Candidate Dressed as a Nazi? and the Washington Post, Candidate rejects criticism of Nazi uniform.

Nobody is a better Republi-Con Myth Buster by mocking the Republi-CON created reality than Stephen Colbert. Watch as he keeps fear alive and explains why America should fear Muslims:

And he wants the little one to grow up Republi-con, with suggestions for new coloring book to teach kids Tea Party values, such as Christine O'Donnell's Masturbation Alternatives and Down on the Farm with Carl Paladino, which cites his "racist and pornographic emails, some of which featured bestiality videos":

Judge for yourself, view the emails if you dare (<-WARNING: this link contains extremely graphic material). And don't forget his roast of Bush at the 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner.

Restore Truthiness


If you can't be there, watch it live on Comedy Central or streamed live online.

UPDATE: Not one but two rallies.

First, the Rally to Restore Sanity, where "rational people will gather on the National Mall in DC to spread spread a timely message -- take it down a notch for America":

And if that is too serious for ya, there is the March to Keep Fear Alive, "to fight Jon Stewart's creeping reasonableness and to restore truthiness":

Who wants to make a road trip to DC in late October?

Time to mock the Republi-CON created reality, support the Restore Truthiness rally, because "[t]here's no way to have a logical public discussion with the teabaggers. The best we can do is mimic them."

P.S. Don't know what Truthiness is? Then watch this:
