We now know that Alex Haley's book "Roots" was a hoax. The first half of it was plagiarized and the second half may have been written by someone else. We also now know that the Matthew Shepard case was not about being anti-gay. So do liberals and progressives lie more as a case of the ends justify the means?

A bit of critical thinking? would tell you that conservatives embrace character and liberals embrace lying, lying about lying and frankly anything justifies the means as long as the end is THEIR ideological goals. To conservatives the means matters.
That's true Poolman, but I guess the follow up question is "To what extent?" I think the liberals\ and progressive lies are bigger.
Based on recent history, I would have to agree with you.
I agree with you both, but what do people expect? What if he would have stood at a podium and said, " Gotcha!"? Would we all feel better? It's hard to do, but if we all put ourselves in his position, we'd do the same thing. He is human, don't forget.
I don't expect perfection. What I do expect is some modicum of sincerity. Obama has lied about practically everything of note during his presidency. And no one says anything. Certainly not the dummycrats and more disappointingly not Republicans.
By now, most of us know he might as well have said "Gotcha" as making a feeble attempt at an apology. We have just begun to feel the pain and suffering this so called health care bill will cause. Way to go Obama, your dream has come true.
Wow, what a profound answer! Liberals think the sky is polluted beyond repair, babies in the womb are deserving of murder, rain is acid due to manmade global warming and will kill us all! Just like a liberal to sugar coat what they really believe.
That's not a generalization at all, you've clearly gotten to know liberals on a personal level. Kudos for not jumping to hasty conclusions with hateful rhetoric.
If your comment made sense "generalization"? it'd be easier to answer. Hasty and hateful? Hardly, I've observed liberals for 20 years and no one is more adept at jumping to hasty conclusions with hateful rhetoric. I'm just calling a spade a spade.
Generalization as in, making judgements about a group of people based on limited information. For example, not all liberals are pro-abortion. Generalizations are the basis for things like racism and homophobia. That's why they are hateful/closeminded
