A Corner On Mendacity
One of our favorite bloggers has pointed out that while the current crowd in the White House does indeed lie its butt off, lying is nothing new for Republicans. Democrats, on the other hand, "rarely have been the originators of a big lie in the last 50 years."
We cats gave some thought to that in between naps. We could only come up with one really big Democratic lie, and it pretty much started with the Gulf of Tonkin. And of course the lie that was Vietnam became a Republican one, too. Remember Richard Nixon saying he had a secret plan to win the war? He ended up expanding it.
In the end, we decided that Democratic lies just don't hold a candle to GOP ones. Here is a list of some of their whoppers. Read 'em and weep.
Tax cuts for the wealthy create jobs.
Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
Presidents can't nominate Supreme Court justices in their final year in office.
Read my lips: No new taxes.
Obamacare is failing. We have a plan to replace it.
If you make it, demand will follow.
If the President does it, it's not illegal.
If you want to avoid an Administration dogged by never-ending scandals and investigations, vote for Trump.
