When politicians say "I misspoke", do they say that so they won't have to come out and say, "I lied"?

I think what it typically means is "I meant what I said, but I didn't mean for anyone to hear it."

I must be terrible to have to live a life in which every word you say is likely to be overheard, misinterpreted, and bounced back at you in inconvenient times. Awesomely unpleasant.

"Lied" isn't *necessarily* accurate - depending on the specific incident - but it is certainly so they escape taking *actual* responsibility for their ignorant/uninformed - & sometimes outright illegal behavior.

The amazing thing is we select someone who is the best of who we don't want.

Which is exactly why I don't like to see lawyers become president.
