Fine -- that's standard-issue mendacity. But then Wehner says something I always suspected wingnuts believed, but presumed they hadn't the audacity to say aloud:
George W. Bush’s greatest moment in his presidency was still months off.
September 11, 2001 was many things: tragic, avoidable, horrific, devastating, and so on. But it honestly never occurred to me that allowing the attacks of that morning* and then riding the resultant popularity to a second term was something Bush ought to be proud of.
(Bush, to his credit, reportedly disagrees with Wehner.)
*Yes. I'm sure you've noticed that even though Obama's been in office a mere month and a half, the fucked up economy is his fault.
