Ari Fleischer continues to lie
Two big lies on this video, which I suppose is par for the course for Ari Fleischer in a minute and a half.
The first is at the very beginning, when he says that Bush inherited a recession. This is a lie and he knows it. The recession did not start until after Bush took office. They like to say that he came in after a recession, hoping to absolve Bush from what happened to the economy (admittedly a small point when we see now what he did to the economy that Obama has to deal with), but it just isn't true.
The other big lie comes at 1:09 to 1:16. "But after September 11, having been hit once, how could we take the chance that Saddam would not strike again?"
Get the two key words there--"Saddam" and "again". Fleischer missed no opportunity to lie about the source of the 2001 terrorist attacks when he was working for Bush, and he's still doing it.
What a miserable excuse for a human being.
