Brazen Liars

That's the problem. It isn't that they just lie. It's that they lie brazenly, and they must KNOW that everyone knows they are lying, and they don't care.

Karl Rove is now claiming that Bush was OPPOSED to the Democrats voting on the Iraq war before the 2002 election, and Bush wanted them to wait a while, and it was the DEMOCRATS who rushed to war in Iraq.

Rove: "Why did the United States Senate vote on the war resolution in the fall of 2002? This administration was opposed to it. The Administration was opposed to voting on it in the fall of 2002, because we didn't think it belonged within the confines of the election. There was an election coming up in a matter of weeks. We thought it made it too political. We wanted it outside the confines of it. It seemed to make things move too fast. Things that needed to be done to bring along allies and potential allies abroad."

I don't even know what to say. It's INSANE that this person would actually get on television and say something like that, and it's MORE insane that Charlie Rose wouldn't call him on it.

War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.

UPDATE: Just in case you have any doubt, here
is one of the many article proving that Rove is a liar.

Washington Post, September 11, 2002 - Congressional Democrats said yesterday that classified briefings by President Bush's top advisers have failed to make a compelling case for quick military action against Iraq, and several leaders said Congress should wait until after the November elections before voting to authorize a strike against Saddam Hussein's regime.

"I know of no information that the threat is so imminent from Iraq" that Congress cannot wait until January to vote on a resolution, said Minority Whip Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee...

The White House, after originally suggesting it might act against Iraq without congressional approval, has called on Congress to pass a resolution of support before adjourning in October.
