Lying as a political strategy

Rep. Paul Kanjorski explains the meaning of the Democrats anti-war stance in 2006:
"I'll tell you my impression. We really in this last election, when I say we...the Democrats, I think pushed it as far as we can to the end of the fleet, didn't say it, but we implied it. That if we won the Congressional elections, we could stop the war. Now anybody was a good student of Government would know that wasn't true. But you know, the temptation to want to win back the Congress, we sort of stretched the facts...and people ate it up."
Among the people fooled was Osama bin Laden. In a video from September last year, bin Laden said:
"After several years of tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. Thus, you elected the Democratic party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven't made a move worth mentioning."
Obviously, the Democrats need better communication with foreign leaders so those leaders don't feel betrayed by Democratic lies.
