    Right now it seems pretty clear that Bush lied to the American people and to Congress.  The thought is why, if people tend to believe that we're in Iraq for false reasons, does it appear that it doesn't really matter to most people?  
    The most startling finding is that in considering whether a statement is a lie, the least important consideration for most people is whether it is true!
    (from Don't Think of an Elephant by George Lakoff)  The bigger issue is that Bush betrayed the trust of the American people.  Either for reasons he honestly believed or for information he knew to be false.  That's not the issue at hand.  How can we follow a leader who betrays the trust of those he's supposed to serve?  This spills over to all matters related to presidential integrity.  Since the powers that be seem to ignore argument upon argument that the President abused his war powers and devised legal rationales for torture of suspected terrorist-prisoners in U.S. care maybe it's time that we talk to them in language they'll understand.  They seem so caught up on integrity and trust maybe it'll sink in a little more if that's how the argument is framed.  Just a few thoughts...

    Peace.
