Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post asks readers
What are the biggest presidential lies in recent history?
That’s a no-brainer for Andy and me, since recent history includes Eisenhower. We’re still ranting about the U-2 incident,
If Ike would lie to us, anyone would.
Eisenhower later said the lie was his greatest regret as president.
I didn’t realize how high a price we were going to pay for that lie. And if I had to do it all over again, we would have kept our mouths shut.
I feel sorry for Eisenhower and still have warm feelings for him. But he did teach us never to trust what the government tells us.
What about you? What do you think the worst presidential lie was?
