    I am trying to capture the spirit of bipartisanship as practiced by the Democratic Party over the last eight years.

    Thus, I have chosen as my lead, the proposition: Obama lied; the economy died. Obviously, I am borrowing this from the Democratic Party theme of 2003-08: "Bush lied, people died." There are, of course, two differences between the two slogans.

    Most importantly, I chose to separate the two clauses with a semicolon rather than a coma because the rule of grammar is that a semicolon rather than a coma) should be used between closely related independent clauses not conjoined with a coordinating conjunction. In the age of Barack Obama, there is little more important than maintaining the integrity of our language - against the onslaught of Orwellian language abuse that is already a babbling brook, and will soon be a cataract of verbal deception.

    The other difference is that George W. Bush didn't lie about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. He was merely mistaken. Whereas President Obama told a whopper last week when he claimed he was not for bigger government. As he said Tuesday night: "As soon as I took office, I asked this Congress to send me a recovery plan by President's Day that would put people back to work and put money in their pockets. Not because I believe in bigger government - I don't."

    The only person who lied about WMD was Saddam.

    And EVERYONE took him at his word.

    this has to be getting tough for you Jillian. Even presented with your guys own words you still have to use the response of your average two year old.

    WAKE THE FUCK UP. He isn't telling you to listen to us. He's telling you to listen to Obama and evaluate what he says vs. what he does.

    They were duped by Saddam also. Saddam wanted everyone to think he had WMD, even though he had mostly complied with the UN sanctions. He never figured we'd actually come after him. In part, his reasoning for doing so probably had to do with his fear of another war with Iran. That, and he liked to talk big.
