    a tad weak:

    In the first one, he's obviously talking about dissent, but in the second, he ain't.  He's talking more about trust and credibility.  Now, I know you can't separate the two completely, but one can disagree with Bush without calling him a liar.

    Joe Lieberman today on dissent:

       What I will say is this: I not only respect your right to disagree or question the President, I value it. I was part of the anti-war movement in the late 1960s, so I don't need to be lectured by Ned Lamont about the place of dissent in our democracy.

    Joe Lieberman in December 2005 on dissent.

       It's time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be the commander in chief for three more critical years and that in matters of war we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril.

      Ridiculous.

      IF it is not dissent referred, how exactly would we  be "undermining" the President's credibility?

      No, you are  completely and utterly wrong on this imo.

      It can mean nothing but dissent.

      In fact, Lieberman des not deny he was referring to dissent, but that he meant HOW we dissent.

      That makes no sense either.

      He's lying and you got it wrong.

      Ok, semi-retired from blogging. Returning fulltime in December.
