President Pants on Fire
Bush has been trying to shore up his support, especially over the Iraq war. His news conference was filled with delusional thinking and lies that I considered fisking, but I've got stuff to do today (get car serviced, see V for Vendetta, go to Dem caucus).
But I got an email from Democrats.org that points out an egregious Bush lie from yesterday's news conference.
BUSH: "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."
And they correct it.
"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." [President George W. Bush, Letter to Congress, 3/21/03]
He was lying then, and he's lying now.
