"Nobody died when Bill Clinton lied."
The slogan featured in the title of this post first began appearing in the offworld a.k.a. the internet on blogs throughout 2003, then became the name of a blog which featured photos of various signs found along roadsides across the States displaying similar sentiments.
Last Sunday, the line finally made it into the mainstream media uttered by a newspaper journalist on NBC tv's sunday morning political show Meet The Press.
Here's the excerpt of U.S. News and World Report's Roger Simon's reply to Russert from this past Sunday's MTP "Political Roundtable":
MR. RUSSERT: Dwight Eisenhower had this to say: "The greatest asset any occupant of the White House has is the trust of the American people and total credibility. If the president loses this, he has lost his greatest strength." Roger Simon, as Gwen mentioned, the documents were released on terms of the president's National Guard service. He also agreed to sit with the chairman and co-chairman of the 9/11 Commission...which was a change.
This statement survived having not one proclamation of skepticism from it's host during the actual interview nor any attempt at protest by any Republican pundit or operative thereafter -- which tells me that the Repubs know their FlyBoy has a growing credibilty problem with the American people.
