Perino: No Terrorist Attacks In America Under Bush (VIDEO)How do you argue with these people?
25 Nov 2009
Dana Perino, recently nominated by President Obama to the Broadcasting Board of Governors, made an odd claim Tuesday night.
On Fox News, the former press secretary suggested President Obama was playing politics by refusing to describe the massacre at Fort Hood as a terrorist attack. "We should call it what it is," she said.
"We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush's term," she told Sean Hannity. "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."
"If wishes were horses, Beggars would ride"The context of that long-ago post was the magical thinking rampant in W's administration."We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality."

Apparently not much has changed for loyal Bushies.
[... others have noticed: whenever Cheney and the rest of W's cabal speak, they assume W's presidency began on 12 Sep 2001.]
