Richard Blumentahl - Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire
Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (D) has, over the years, repeatedly stated that he was stationed in Vietnam during the Vietnam war. Unfortunately, after receiving 5 deferments, he finally joined the Marine Corps Reserve never serving in Vietnam.
He had this to say when he finally admitted his lies:
I never had sexual relations with that woman oops, wrong liar.
Here is what he actually said:
Now on a few occasions, I have misspoken about my service and I regret that and I take full responsibility, but, I will not allow...I will not allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.
I'm surprised he didn't claim he received the Congressional Medal Of Honor while fighting in Vietnam. And just how is he taking responsibility for his "misplaced words?" Blumenthal is running for the United States Senate, attempting to replace another liar, Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT), chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, who claims that he was unaware he received any sweetheart mortgages from his buddy at Countrywide Financial, Angelo Mozilo.
From the Wall Street Journal:
In response to the charge that he knew he was getting favors, Mr. Dodd at first issued a strong denial: "This suggestion is outrageous and contrary to my entire career in public service. When my wife and I refinanced our loans in 2003, we did not seek or expect any favorable treatment. Just like millions of other Americans, we shopped around and received competitive rates." Less than a week later he acknowledged he was part of Countrywide's VIP program but claimed he thought it was "more of a courtesy."
Just a few more "misplaced words."
Can't the Democrats find anyone in Connecticut who can tell the truth?
