Presidential Mendacity Index 

Washington Monthly records the biggest lies told by our last four presidents. Compared to the high-stakes lies that Bush is so fond of, some of these seem light-hearted and good for a laugh. I've often found Reagan's lies good natured and amusing. One of my favorite Reagan quotes:

"A few months ago I told the American people I did not trade arms for hostages. My heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not."
