During the Clinton years, overstatement was called lying by the GOP. During the 2000 Election, Gore's overstatements were called proof he was unfit to hold office. So what do we call it now? I call it using fear as a weapon against the American people, needlessly endangering the lives of those soldiers who actually have to fight(As opposed to those who use photo-ops on ships to hide the fact they hid in the Texas Air National Guard during the Vietnam War. Y'know, when they weren't AWOL for 19 months that is).
