One of President Bush’s college professors remembered him as a “pathological liar.” We have seen examples of this trait throughout his presidency. Now comes this shining example.
Last week, President Bush told ABC’s Diane Sawyer: “I don’t think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees.”
We asked at the time whether this statemant was a reflection of Mr. Bush’s practiced cluelessness or simply a lie. It was the former, not surprisingly:
John Breaux, the former Democratic Louisiana senator and close Bush ally, rejected the president’s claim that nobody anticipated the failure of the city’s levees, saying he talked to Bush about it last year.
