How about this beauty of a 'misstatement'

I love it when politicians take a bald faced lie and turn it into a "misstatement." That in itself is a misstatement. When you deliberately tell something over and over that is not true, that is a 'lie.' Just because you surround yourself with combat veterans and call it a misstatement, doesn't change it from the lie that it was.

It is unfathomable to me that somebody could try to pull of a lie like this, or that he got away with it for as long as he did.

Despicable. All he had to say was he served during the Vietnam era. Why on earth does a politician think nobody's going to do research to verify?

His efforts to do damage control were laughable.

Yes, Kevin it is hard to understand in a world with all the electronic recording devices that you could possibly get away with this.

Then we have the Republican Congressman who had to quit his post after an affair. How many politicians are doing this at the very time they see the wreckage this causes to others and their families.

Unbelieveable. At least this guy had the sense not to drag his wife before the cameras. I'm pretty sick of that too.

I distinctly remember the tour of duty I did not serve in Vietnam.

Me a Vietnam vet??? Heck, I make sure I still have my student deferment.
