Maxine Waters: George Bush 'a Liar,' Dick Cheney 'a Thief'

Using unusually intemperate rhetoric even for a Democrat, firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters is blasting President Bush and Vice President Cheney over their conduct of the Iraq war, calling Bush "a liar" and Cheney "a thief."

After attending a mock impeachment hearing two weeks ago staged by House Democrats, Rep. Waters told cheering onlookers, "Finally Congress has come alive and decided to take on this president in a real way."

"The president is a liar," she continued. "Dick Cheney, the chief architect of the Big Lie, is not only a liar, he is a thief."
She accused Cheney of helping his former company Halliburton rake off illicit war profits in Iraq.
Waters' comments went unreported by the mainstream press, only to be picked up by the People's Weekly World Newspaper - a Communist publication.

Rep. Waters declined to respond to repeated calls from NewsMax this week, asking if she disputed the quote.

The California Democrat is a leading member of the House Out of Iraq caucus; a group whose roster includes John Conyers, Barbara Lee, Charles Rangel, Carolyn Maloney, Jose Serrano and other anti-war Democrats.

Speaking alongside Waters, Rep. Lee vowed to apply "street heat" to Congress to bring an end to "this illegal war."


I think (D) Maxine Waters "should either apologize or resign for accusing" the President of being a "liar" and the Vice-President of being a "liar and a thief".

"I would hope that ... other members of the ..." (D)umbassrat party ... "would immediately repudiate such an insulting comment from a high-ranking official in the" Senate.
