Last night on “The Factor, Michael Moore took his place on the hot seat across from the fiery Bill O’Reilly. You gotta give him credit for finally going on a program that isn’t teeming with sycophants. You could also conclude that Moore is so ideologically bent that he thinks his viewpoint will shine through, no matter what venue he appears in. Regardless, he was there and demonstrated that he doesn’t understand what the word “lie” is as he explains that President Bush “lied” to the American people about Iraq.
Michael, here’s the definition of “lie”, according to the American Heritage dictionary:
- A false statement deliberately presented as being true; a falsehood.
- Something meant to deceive or give a wrong impression.
Now, President Bush has been exonerated by British Intelligence, Russia, (unwittingly) President Clinton, and the bipartisan 9/11 commission. Everyone thought that Hussein had WMD’s. We’ve actually found them in Iraq, although not in the vast quantities that would appease the anti-war crowd. Knowing what Bush knew and also appreciating that inaction, like the kind studies by the commission, could be catastrophic for the nation, President Bush took action. That does NOT make him a liar, unless you’d like to label those previously named.
