The Lady Speaks

Master of Disaster…

The President doesn’t like what he calls ‘revisionist historians’.

From a speech El Commandante gave in New Jersey, 2003:

Now, there are some who would like to rewrite history — revisionist historians is what I like to call them. [as if he made the phrase up all by his little lonesome – JK]

Well, now it turns out the Shrubbie is one of those ‘revisionist historians’! *gasp* During a Q&A session today, Bush said:

First, just if I might correct a misperception, I don’t think we ever said – at least I know I didn’t say that there was a direct connection between September the 11th and Saddam Hussein.

Say what?! From ThinkProgress:

In fact, Bush justified the war against Iraq by directly linking it to 9/11:

The use of armed forces against Iraq is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations or person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001. [Bush’s Letter to Congress, 3/21/03] [emphasis mine]
