Lied or was simply mistaken? Obviously liberals are going to just assume that Bush lied because he's supposedly pure evil.
But there is a difference between lying and just being wrong.
I never really paid much attention to the Patriot Act, but I did support it. I also don't recall a single Constitutional right that I had in 2001 that I don't still have right now. So I suspect the notion that it was stripping Americans of their rights was bogus. I'd be interested to see some evidence of that.
