Bush Lies, Hard and Fast in the Middle of the Road
David Corn has written a whole book on the subject The Lies of George W. Bush. (2003, but a revised paperback edition is out.)
Over on the Center for American Progress site, they have a nice compilation of stories from 2004 and earlier. They also have a searchable database of lies that's not as impressive.
An interesting story from a New Zealand source in 2003 attempts to quantify and describe the various tactics Bush uses to lie. It names the techniques and has lots of examples.
Damn, I thought I could stomach writing about this. I can't. I'd call him a weaselly liar but I hesitate to insult weasels. I actually think it would be easier to parse out the truth from his utterances than to attempt to list his lies which are myriad. You're on your own now.
