The FoxNews transcript of the exchange between Tony Snow and Sen. Jay Rockefeller shows the duplicity of the Democrats who voted for the war, and now claim that they were deceived because the president lied about the threat from Iraq.
Snow drops quotes from speeches delivered by President Bush and Senator Rockefeller last year, including the infamous State of the Union address, and it was not Bush, but Rockefeller who claimed that the threat was imminent!
Of course, even when confronted by transcripts and video clips, Rockefeller continued to claim that he didn’t say what he did, and that the president said something he clearly didn’t.
Politicians count on our short memories to get away with flip-flops like this. Thanks to Tony Snow for showing Rockefeller to be either not very truthful or not very intelligent.
