There seems to be a lot of concern over Obama “lies” about sequester. Given these recent threads, one might think Obama invented the “Presidential Lie”. But off the top of my head, I came up with these.

Going backward through administrations, I didn't have room for Nixon “lies” about Watergate, one of my personal favorites.

Who do you think was the worst liar – the one who's lies did the most harm?

I'd like to contribute more, but I have other, more interesting obligations this afternoon. Have a good weekend!
