    democrats lie more than anyone!

    Mary Matalin, a Republican political advisor had a program years ago on CNBC. She stated that the difference between democrat and Republican politicians was that a democrat could look you in the eye and lie but a Republican could not. She is married to democrat political advisor James Carville for 20 years.

    They even lie about lying. For example, PolitiFact rated 32% of Republican claims as “false” or “pants on fire,” compared to 11% of Democratic claims – a 3 to 1 margin. Conversely, Politifact rated 22% of Democratic claims as “entirely true” compared to 11% of Republican claims – a 2 to 1 margin.

    Interesting, given that the primary reactions by liberals to conservative proposals is to question their motivations, smear anonymously, bring out the "teary eyed spokesperson" to denounce the plan, rewrite history, argument avoidance, out-of-context ad hominem attacks, and the presentation of straw man fallacies.

    But that's not lying. Right? :rolleyes:

    Both sides of the isle do it. The difference is when conservatives/capitalists do it they are shamed. When liberals/socialists do it, it is just part of their political strategy.
