LBJ:
We were attacked (in the Gulf of Tonkin )

Nixon:
I am not a crook

GHW Bush:
Read my lips - No New Taxes

Clinton:
I did not have sex with that woman.. Miss Lewinski

GW Bush:
Iraq has weapons of mass destruction

Obama:
I will have the most transparent administration in history.
The stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs.
I am focused like a laser on creating jobs.
The IRS is not targeting anyone.
It was a spontaneous riot about a movie.
I will put an end to the type of politics that "breeds division, conflict and cynicism".
You didn't build that!
I will restore trust in Government
The Cambridge cops acted stupidly.
The public will have 5 days to look at every bill that lands on my desk
It's not my red line - it is the world's red line.
Whistle blowers will be protected in my administration.
We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest.
I am not spying on American citizens.
Obama Care will be good for America .
You can keep your family doctor.
Premiums will be lowered by $2500.
If you like it, you can keep your current healthcare plan.
It's just like shopping at Amazon.
I knew nothing about "Fast and Furious" gunrunning to Mexican drug cartels.
I knew nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups.
I knew nothing about what happened in Benghazi .
I have never known my uncle from Kenya who is in the country illegally and that was arrested and told to leave the country over 20 years ago.
And, I have never lived with that uncle. He finally admitted (12-05-2013) that he DID know his uncle and that he DID live with him.
If elected I promise not to renew the Patriot Act.
If elected I will end the war in Iraq and Afghanistan within the 1st 9 months of my term.
I will close Guantanamo within the first 6 months of my term.
I will bridge the gap between black and white and between America and other countries.


And the biggest lie of all:
"I, Barrack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America ."

I don't think LBJ's counts. The truth of the matter I believe came out after the public comments.
I cite irreconcilable differences.

I visited the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery this afternoon.

There were maybe 6 or 8 people waiting in line to take a picture of this portrait.

Maybe the only one with a line waiting to see it.

Also one of the stranger portraits.

The other strange portrait in the room.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

That's not a blurred image, it is just weird technique.

Thank goodness there's no funny looking pictures of the current President.
What do you mean "we", have you got a mouse in your pocket?

You have to understand the hatred Jon has for Trump. Like many others, if it took the country failing to mark up political points on Trump, he'd gladly let the country fail.

But is the viewpoint that Trump doesn't lie, or that his lies aren't important?

Read through the list of Obama's lies, and the with a straight face tell me even one lie that Trump has told that even comes close to being as destructive as the least of Obama's .

In fact, let's see you list his lies - not that nutjob list Catseye posted that she got from the NYT - a credible list.

Going off topic, but whatever. Not sure what terminologies young people prefer these days. Are there teenagers or young adults in your family that you can ask? If not, Aqua, Riley, Opti, LW ... can you young people help Jolly out with that question?

Identifying narcissists isn't difficult. Just look for the person who is constantly fishing for compliments
and admiration while breaking down over even the slightest bit of criticism.

We have the freedom to choose our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences.

Nah, I'm sure you can answer it. Just wipe off the Cheetos dust so you quit messing up your keyboard...

Larry didn't include Ford or Carter. I'm sure both said things that later turned out not to be true, but an easy "lie" for either doesn't come quickly to mind. Interesting that neither was re-elected.
