Big Fibbin’

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

I’ve never been terribly impressed with Liz Cheney. Her father may have a pact with Satan, despite the records of the negotiations remaining off limits due to executive privilege. But he’s a highly accomplished government operative and insider over a period of something like forty years — with a decent span as a member of the House.

But I’m not sure I remember her fibbing on quite this scale before. But when Liz Cheney attacked President Obama for his visit to Dover Air Force Base to greet and honor the bodies of American servicemen killed in action in Afghanistan, she claimed that President Bush routinely did the same thing — only without cameras. Yet, there’s no evidence Bush ever did this. Not even once. Cameras or no cameras. Reporters who covered Obama and Bush say Obama’s the first to have done this.

Curious whether she’ll get asked about this. She shows up on Fox pretty often.
