To the Editor:
Well, there are big lies and the other kind.
Lyndon B. Johnson — “We were attacked by North Vietnamese torpedo boats in the Gulf of Tonkin.”
Result: 58,000 killed in action and billions of dollars lost. Saigon renamed Ho Chi Minh City.
Richard Nixon — “I am not a crook.”
Result: The only president to resign the office in disgrace.
George W. Bush — “Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.”
Result: More than 4,000 killed in action, billions of dollars wasted, Iraq infiltrated by Iran and cities taken over by insurrectionist.
I think one of the biggest lies going around by conservatives is that race is not a factor in their criticism of the president.
They do protest too much.
