Who's a Liar?

Res Ipsa Loquitor
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's claim about federal funding for seniors to play "World of Warcraft" turns out to be fantasy... blah blah blah.

"While lawmakers have a right to question whether federal funding should go to studies involving video games, Cantor made a bold claim about "World of Warcraft" that is simply not supported by the facts." [Full]

I don't like or trust Eric Cantor.   However.  Posting someone's nonfactual e-mail without fact-checking (something I've done more than once) does not make me a liar; it makes me careless with facts at times. So, the Washington Guardian is  wrong to  charge Cantor with  telling a lie in this case. But that's not what this is really about.

The willy-nilly labeling as lies is a favorite device of the left.   When  President Bush announced that Saddam Hussein had WMD, and none were found after being trucked into Syria,  he was falsely labeled a LIAR by the anti-war left machine, including the the democrats in congress who dittoed Bush's charge.  When Bill Clinton said "I did not have sex ...), and almost anything else he has ever uttered, he was lying, and is therefore a liar*. 
So there's that.

The second reason to spank the Washington Guardian is this.  The Biggest Whopper last week (as it has been for virtually every week of his presidency) belongs to Barry Obama Soetoro.  WOODWARD: Obama fibs on budget cuts... ^

*I think lies must be premeditated, so people like Bill Clinton (sociopaths)—who actually believe their self-serving versions— may have some wiggle room.  His Monica lie was premeditated, and I think I became pretty good at decoding his facial tics and body language in other conscious lies.  He seemed to have given himself a pass on anything that was political, but could not do that with his personal life.   Sociopaths of course should never hold important stations in life, except maybe as foreman of the prison chain gang,  or the like.
