Bush’s Term Was Only Kittens And Rainbows

Filed in National by on November 25, 2009

Remember how we snickered when Dana Perino admitted she didn’t know anything about the Bay of Pigs? Her problems with history are more severe than that:

But Perino’s appearance last night with Sean Hannity was more noteworthy than most. The topic was the shootings at Fort Hood, and Perino, playing her usual role, criticized the White House for not having labeled the massacre as “terrorism.” She emphasized that the rhetorical description of the violence “matters,” though she didn’t say why.

More important, though, is what Perino went on to argue: “We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term. I hope they’re not looking at this politically. I do think that we owe it to the American people to call it what it is.”

Dana – who was president on September 11, 2001, the date of the biggest terrorist attack in American history?

    FOX relies on the fact that they broadcast mostly to people who can’t remember what they had for breakfast. Of course, these people vote.

    well, if 9/11 wasnt a terrorist attack, than it was a simple murder… so prosecuting those who planned it should be no problem…. thanks Dana, i know the right wanted KSM and his merry band of morons to get out of jail and kill fake american new yorkers so you could have a new sign at Tea Partys, but it looks like they are going to suffer our justice system the same way Timothy “RIght Wing Poster Boy” McVeigh did.

    I think the scariest part is that the other two didn’t even blink when that slid out. Either 1)they’re so used to blatant lies slipping out that it didn’t phase them or 2)they were so busy thinking about what THEY were going to say that they weren’t listening. When something THAT false comes out of someone’s mouth I’m expecting at blink, a flinch, SOMETHING.
    It’s like that time this year Ari Fliesher was on Hardball and sandwiched in a string on untruths he slid out that Sadam Hussain was involved in 911. This year. I literally had a seizure when Matthews didn’t respond. Of course he’s probably MSNBC’s greatest offender when it comes to the second option i listed above.

    In 1988, at the end of his presidency, Ronald Reagan tried riviving a quote from John Adams, that “facts are stubborn things.” The moment became quite famous when he botched it, and said “facts are stupid things.” Sadly this has become the mantra of fox news and the conservative movement. When facts highlight nothing but past errors and mistakes caused by flawed dogma it,s best to consider facts largly irrelevent.

    And what was that anthrax stuff? Not terrorism?

  6. The anthrax attacks have been shoved completely out the memory hole. They probably won’t resurface since there will never be a trial either.
