So… just HOW dishonest is Bush? Well, let’s approach this scientifically. Remember in May, when the White House said that Jack Abramoff only had two contacts with the White House? White House logs list only 2 Abramoff visits – May 10, 2006,
Newly released visitor logs show disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff was signed in to the White House complex on two occasions since President Bush took office in 2001, including once when the president was out of town.
Well it turns out the White House misunderestimated the number,
The House Government Reform Committee report, based on e-mail messages and other records subpoenaed from Mr. Abramoff’s lobbying firm, found 485 contacts between Mr. Abramoff’s lobbying team and White House officials from 2001 to 2004, including 82 with Mr. Rove’s office. [emphasis added]
So, there we have it. We can now calculate that when the White House says ‘2’ the truth is ‘485’.
Let’s hope they aren’t saying we’ll be occupying Iraq for 2 more years.
