When Dwight Eisenhower was caught in the U-2 lie, most Americans were ashamed. When Richard Nixon’s Watergate lies were exposed, the nation was enraged. When Bill Clinton’s Monica Lewinksy lie was proven to be true, the nation reacted with vexation tempered by amusement.
When Hillary Clinton was confronted with the Bengazhi deception, she angrily challenged, “What difference does it make?” and the nation mostly blinked and fell silent. Now that Barak Obama’s studied health care mendacity is exposed, he offers a pro forma “sorry” and hardly anyone notices.
What does all this say about the progress of the American character?
