      ... when lying about some version of truthiness and hyperbole became SOP.

      Governments have always lied to us and we know that, but under those two lying war criminals it became a normal daily activity that Moronic Media winked at as they reported quotes like good little stenographers that they are, and for the first time in ages no one was put on trial for lying to Congress and not showing up per a summons to appear before Congress even as they flipped the bird at Congress with impunity.  [See Rove, KKKarl & Meiers, Harriet.]

      Under the Bushista regime, lying became acceptable in ways it never was before that.

      Unfortunately, Obama - the constitutional law prof - has allowed and encouraged the same behavior in his administration.
