Quote of the Day: “Congress Was Lied To”

“We can soft-pedal it a lot of ways, but Congress was lied to.”

–U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California) on testimony from the White House and Justice Department on their testimony regarding the firing of the federal prosecutors. He also said that if Attorney General Alberto Gonzales had any role in false information being given to Congress, “he should not be able to continue in his job.”

If they want to look at lies given to Congress, they might also look at the claims prior to the Iraq War, as well as the Bush administration’s suppression of information to Congress on their Medicare Part D plan.

    Quite frankly I’ve found this Dept. of Justice firings business very complicated, and a bit boring. Thankfully, Jon Stewart explains it to me in this video:

    Congress was lied to? WHAT???? NEVER!

    That’s getting a little old. Somewhat like the “Mistakes were made” speech. As in “Mistakes were made, but even though I’m the decider, it’s totally not my fault okay? They were made. I’m not going to change them, but they were made.”

    Yes, mistakes were made, but of course not by me. Maybe my assistant made the mistakes so he’ll have to resgn, to take a job elsewhere in my office. . .

    It’s getting to be too much even for Republicans to put up with.
