The President Has Misled Us

Howard Dean made the following statement today while campaigning in Iowa: "When George W. Bush ran for president three years ago, he promised us an era of responsibility in Washington--instead we've got an era of irresponsibility unparalleled in our history. A week after discovering that the cost of occupying Iraq will be double the original estimates, we found out that the nation's deficit is 50 percent higher than estimated just five months ago. In fact, during his two-and-a-half years in office, the President has misled us, the American people, on nearly every policy initiative his administration has put forth. "Trust and credibility are at the very heart of the relationship between a government and its people. And that trust demands that leaders level with the people about what they are doing, the reason they are doing it and the consequences of their actions. The very soul of democracy is at risk when leaders are not straight and truthful with the people. more...
This is what is known as a "big picture" statement. Dean uses the lies about Niger Uranium as a launching point to list the repeated deceptions of the Bush administration on nearly every issue for the last three years, both foreign and domestic.
ASSERTION: President Bush: “Government cannot manage or control the economy.” (President Bush’s budget message, 2/3/2003) TRUTH: George W. Bush’s administration cannot manage or control the economy.
Speak it brother!
