Yet another lying liberal blogger

This blogger writes:

“The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him.”
- G.W. Bush, 9/13/01

“I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”
- G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

We don’t tolerate this flim-flam in our personal lives. We don’t trust it in business relationships and leadership. So, how do we invite a return to integrity in the White House? I’m not really partial to any one guy or party, I have no special bias — I expect the truth from everybody.

So, I helpfully posted a comment, pointing out that those two quotes are phony. How did he respond? He censored my comment by removing it!

Now, what did he say?

"We don’t tolerate this flim-flam in our personal lives.", "invite a return to integrity", "I have no special bias — I expect the truth from everybody."

Uh huh. Suuuuuure you do.

Speaking of which, Ari Berman of The Nation falls for the same two phony quotes, using Daily Kos' wiki page as her source.

This isn't the first time I've corrected a liberal blogger in their comments section of their blogs. Pointing out their mistake in falling for an urban legend or phony quote, only to have them delete my comment in order to perpetuate the lie they tell. To be honest, that occurs only a small minority of the time. The vast majority acknowledge their mistake. But some do with a sort of defensiveness.
