There have been few presidents who have not made untrue statements (and certainly none in recent history), sometimes for "the greater good," more often for political reasons.
I assume that Pat Bagley's April 25 disrespectful drawing about the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum labeling it "Bush Lie-bury" alluded to the matter of weapons of mass destruction that led us into our on-going wars with the Muslims.
Nevertheless, I found the label ironic, since also at the speaking at the Dallas dedication were arguably the two most prolific truth-twisting presidents to occupy the White House in the past 60 years.
