Rethinking the past is bad, apparently

Bush: Critics rewriting Iraq war history

President Bush today accused critics of the Iraq war of distorting events leading up to the invasion, saying Democrats saw the same intelligence and came to similar conclusions. "While it's perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began." Bush said. Democrats responded immediately -- and angrily.

So... we're now against rethinking? Against revision? Against thinking about the past and trying to avoid its mistakes? Against looking at ourselves and asking if we're going down the right path?

This is the stupidest statement out of this man's mouth as of yet. And we're talking about a guy who said that OB-GYNs should continue to practice their "love of women," used the word subliminable ... and, well, the list goes on. You get it.

Still, this is infuriating.

If it means anything... I heard, from someone who attended the Veterans Day speech, that he was surprised at how few Tobyhanna Army Depot employees actually attended, and that there were a lot of empty seats at the gathering.
