    For God's sake, it looks like she just misspoke.

    When we have to stoop to having to essentially make things up in order to criticize Republicans we have given up. Whatever happened to the intellectually honest debate?

    This is the kind of stooping I'd expect from a conservative radio talk show host who needs a zinger for ratings and is willing to make things up in order to get it. If you act like them, you aren't any better. And if you aren't any better, then honestly, as I said, you've given up.

    I'd agree with you IF it wasn't a pattern for former Bushies to conveniently forget 9/11 when speaking of keeping the USA free from attack. Dana Perino is a VERY smart person and certainly knew EXACTLY what she was saying and did NOT "mis-speak".

    You are right, Hockeytiger. But witness Industrial's reply to you. He can't consider the possibility that it's anything other than a VRWC at work here and not just a case of stutter-tongue or mispoken words.

    So much for "intellectually honest debate".

    Ms Perino was referring to the Fort Hood incident as a terrorist attack, and I agree with her. There was nothing taken out of context. According to her:
    Fort Hood=Terrorist Attack
    9/11.....She seems to have conveniently forgotten that this was a terrorist attack as well.

    fox is blatantly tabloid "journalism" and most of the rest of them aren't far behind, IMO.

    OH good, name calling, the last refuge of those without a point. First off, it was SHE, HER name is Dana Perino.........and the convenient "forgetting" of 9/11 is a pattern of all former bushies when they talk about GWB and say,"But he kept us safe!"

    She also conveniently forgot the anthrax attacks sent to various members of congress, too.

    This over-obvious attempt to reset history to paint GW Bush as less incompetent than we all know him to be is a risible, ridiculous overreach.

    It's also worth noting that she made this stupid claim on Hannity's show, where neither the host nor anyone else present during the segment saw fit to correct her oversight of the painfully obvious: Fox "journalism" at its most painfully self-evident.

    I prefer to be called a libtard.(IF you've decided to sink to name calling. And for the record, I have MANY clues.

    Did we have a terrorist attack after 9/11? were the Fort Hood killings a terrorist attack? are there not groups of people that would love to see the US completely destroyed? Do we sit back and let it happen?

    Do you really want to play this game? Do you really want to compare the two tragedies along with their overall impact to our nation just so you can reserve your negative judgement on the current administration? Trust me, that is the LAST thing you want to do here.

    Did the woman on Fox have a verbal gaffe? Perhaps, just like many other people in politics. Will some people overreact? Of course they will. Should SOMEONE have corrected her? Most certainly, especially if this was an issue of historical accuracy. But as we all know, that's not the motive here.

    The anthrax mailings have never been properly explained, but at the time they were seen as terrorist activity, and they happened after 9/11. And who's the "we" anyways? Spain is an ally in the "war" on terrorism and was attacked in 2004, just to give an obvious example off the top of my head.

    Well, speaking of revisionist history, I woke up the other day to discover Bobby taking a shower in the master bathroom and the last 30 years hadn't even happened yet. Bobby wasn't dead after all. Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and the worser Bush? It was just a dream. . . an ugly dream. Life is now back to "normal" here on the ranch and the cows are much less nervous, too.

    Now, it's time for me to go back to sleep and eliminate the Dark Ages.
