Liar, liar

by Jeffrey Simon on January 24th, 2011

In the continuing “war of words” (oops, politically incorrect word), I find a striking difference in the mutual accusation of “liar.”

First, a lie is an intentionally false statement. In order for a statement to be true or false, it has to be verifiable or falsifiable.  An opinion is not such a statement, and an opinion can never be a lie.

When the left accuses the right of a lie, you rarely ever see the type of statement that can be falsified. I would really like to have a list of actual lies told by the right, so I could publish them here in my blog.

It seems to me that while the left constantly accuses the right of lying, in nearly all cases the statements of the right are opinions. While the left can actually be caught in lie after lie after lie. In fact there are several best selling books which detail the unending stream of lies of the left. Most notable are Michelle Malkin’s Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies and David Limbaugh’s Crimes Against Liberty: An Indictment of President Barack Obama.
