Letter writer Marilyn Barker (“Lies, lies, lies: Republicans guilty too,” Oct. 12) typifies many pro-Clinton-Gore Democrats. They and their paid spinsters try beyond evidence or honesty to tag Republicans as liars or “liars too.” Their examples are often few, vague or are almost always a stretch or bogus.
Barker writes: “They (presumably Republicans) put someone (my emphasis) up to lying to Congress under oath. Isn’t that what they impeached President Clinton for?”
Who is the “someone” who gave this unspecified perjured testimony. That’s vague, a stretch and bogus. Besides being impeached by clear and convincing evidence that he lied and obstructed justice, Clinton was also credibly found – for the same offenses – legally in contempt by a U.S. District Judge.
For anyone who pays attention to the news, there should be little doubt that Clinton and Gore lie (or “fib”) a lot.
Democrat Sen. Bill Bradley said that Gore will and did say anything to get elected. The New York Times noted recently that unidentified Democrats are troubled by Gore’s “exaggerations.”
Back in 1987 when Gore was also running for president, his deputy press secretary, Mike Kapp, noted that Gore gave “an impression you stretch the truth” and cited several examples. Chris Matthews, a Democrat-journalist of “Hardball” on MSNBC, and Tim Russert of “Meet the Press” say that Gore lies.
Gore’s spinsters deny the obvious, change the subject, distort or (like letter-writer Barker) claim the Republicans and George W. lie too. I guess they believe or hope that voters are not paying attention. These spinsters must believe that their lies are OK because Republicans “lie too.”
Voters are fed up. I’m voting for integrity and George W. Bush.
