We all have met people that say one thing and mean another. Many well-known people have spoken out on various topics. We have listed some quotes and what we believe was actually meant.

WHAT THEY MEANT,
I'd reauthorize the Patriot Act, I'd reauthorize the Iraq War Resolution and I would vote for George W. Bush. I know when I am right, I know it, you know it and Dick Cheney knows it.

- Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican candidate for president.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
If I blamed President Bush I would have to accept blame too since I was for and voted to invade Iraq. I would rather blame President Obama than admit I made a mistake.

WHAT THEY MEANT,
Yes, I am dumber than my brother because he is smart enough to listen to the question and I am not.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Jeb should have told the truth that the Bush administration manipulated the truth to sell the American people on a war that was unnecessary,"
- Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), on Governor Bush defending his brother's invasion of Iraq.

- Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) in a statement on Speaker John Boehnerís remarks that federal funding or lack there of them for Amtrak had nothing to do with the train crash in Philadelphia.

Speaker Boehner is a bald-faced liar.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Based on what we know right now, we feel that had such a system been installed in this section of track, this accident would not have occurred,"
- National Transportation Safety Board member Robert Sumwalt, on if a positive train control system had been installed on the Philadelphia tracks, the train crash could have been prevented.

A positive train control system can prevent crashes including the Philadelphia derailment, if only Speaker Boehner and Congress would gives us the money to upgrade the rail system we could save lives.


WHAT THEY SAID,
