Dubya: Idiot or Liar?

I know, he’s probably both. But I’m referring specifically to his recent statement that Saddam Hussein did not allow weapons inspectors into Iraq: “And we gave him a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn’t let them in.” It was an attempt to brush off the controversy about his earlier misstatements that Iraq had been trying to buy uranium from Nigeria. But, unlike the statement in the State of the Union speech, which far surpassed any of Clinton’s masterpieces of careful phrasing to deliver a technically true lie, this latest one was so blatantly false that I wonder how he could expect anybody to believe it, unless he’s such a moron that he believes it himself. In any case, he certainly gave his new press secretary a challenge, as he had to try to spin this one his first day on the job.
