Bush the Decider and now, the Counterfeiter too

posted by James Heflin

Well, if we needed anything else to prove Bush must be impeached for the U.S. to have any self-respect left, this is it.

Ron Suskind reported this a few years ago:

The [senior White House] aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. That's not the way the world really works anymore." He continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors. . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

What reality did they "create"? In his new book The Way of the World, Suskind says Bush ordered up a forged document to "prove" that Saddam had weapons.

Reality can't be so easily changed, apparently. But hey, when you're Bush, breaking the law is all part of protecting the Constitution. And lying to the people who elected you, and ordering people to die for reasons you forged.
