Mentioned on Greater Democracy and other places, this site, "Caught on Film", lists many real-life examples of George Bush saying one thing and doing something very different at the same time. Amongst regular folks, that's called 'lying'. Example:
What Bush said:

"I said when I was running for President, I supported ethanol, and I meant it. (Applause.) I support it now, because not only do I know it's important for the ag sector of our economy, it's an important part of making sure we become less reliant on foreign sources of energy." – Bush at South Dakota Ethanol Plant 4/24/02

What actually happened:

According to the AP, Bush’s 2004 budget proposes to eliminate funding for the bioenergy program that funds the Dakota Ethanol Plant he visited. [4/22/02]

But the attitude I sensed while in the States seems to be best captured by the comments of a Gent from Los Angles we met at Gold's Beach in Oregon. "We don't march with pitch forks in the streets any more so we don't know what to do about it!!". What a 'to do' is what I say. When? I wonder will the terrible twins be impeached for their crimes against humanity? Before or after the third world war? Even if some far seeing "terrorist" takes him out (for the sake of the poor suffering Americans who are unable to see they have a corrupt dictator in charge), we would be left with the worse of the two evils in the form of his henchman the 'silent manipulator' of Haliburton fame. The Patriot 2 Act looks to take all of Hitlers ambitions into the New World.
Oh merrily we sing and dance, is this not fiddling while Rome burns?
