Cheney = Liar

“I’m the president of the Senate. I’ve been to many sessions…the first time I met you was on this stage tonight.”
Dick Cheney, VP Debate, Oct 6, 2004

Oh…really?

Cheney meeting Edwards, 2001
“Thank you. Thank you very much. Congressman Watts, Senator Edwards, friends from across America and distinguished visitors to our country from all over the world, Lynne and I honored to be with you all this morning.” [FDCH Political Transcripts, Cheney Remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast, 2/1/01]

Not to mention the fact that according to Senator Leahy, Dick only meets with the Republican Party members when he attends Congress. I think Lewis Black again said it best: “Dick Cheney…I’ve met Dick Cheney. I’ve never stood so close to evil.”

The Official Kerry/Edwards Blog has a good list of news reactions to Cheney’s lies, including his boldfaced lie that he had never drawn a connection between Iraq/Saddam and 9.11.

One reply on “Cheney = Liar”

Cheney made lots of, um, mis-statements last night. Unfortunately, Edwards sort of stretched the truth a little too. The funniest on Cheney’s end is the whole factcheck.com thing. That was an empty URL when the debate started. After Cheney mentioned, George Soros, Super Liberal, bought it. Factcheck.org is what Cheney meant. I highly recommend it for a complete rundown of the mis-statements from last night. Cheney made more than Edwards. http://www.factcheck.org
