W. as History
Mary L. Dudziak
It is often said that journalists take the first cut at history. Historians then follow up, after the dust has settled. By then the story looks different, or perhaps there are newly released sources. Other presidential administrations have been subject to rounds of revisionism, and George W. Bush’s presidency will be no exception. A shelf of books has already been produced by journalists. Historians are getting a head start as well, with a collection entitled "W. as History" well under way, edited by the noted political historian Julian Zelizer. I will contribute an essay on law in the Bush Administration.
"Other presidential administrations have been subject to rounds of revisionism, and George W. Bush’s presidency will be no exception."
But with W, the revisionism commenced shortly after his inauguration, continuing vigorously since. In fact, at this Blog, little Lisa's bro has been the chief revisioner, with his expanding backpack of lies that emulates Pinocchio.
With W, Oliver has left no Bush unStoned.
W's National Historical Strategy: "Pre-emptive Revisionism."
The idea that Bush was stupid and did not run the executive is the same Dem slander leveled against Reagan back in the 80s. In both cases, the claim was ridiculous on its face.
Heck, I have yet to see the lame duck Bush two weeks from the election. Is there anything of substance he has not obtained from Congress? Congress and both candidates for President have all supported everything he has offered to address the economic slow down and the bank crisis from the rebate checks to he rescue plans.
Like him or hate him, Bush has always been in charge.
Little Lisa'a bro has selected a revisionist w(h)ine to go with his lame duck a la W: tooty AND fruity!

History tells us the best part about this statement is that the Dems were right about Reagan.
Stone's "W" is doing better than similar fiction like "Taxi To The Dark Side," but has come in 4th this Weekend behind such blockbusters as Max Payne, Beverly Hills Chihuahua and Secret Life of Bees.

That reminds me. Have you actually seen "Taxi to the Dark Side" yet?
Just wondering, since you'd criticised it earlier sight-unseen.
Maybe you could enlighten us on which parts are the "fictional" parts of it now, having seen it....
Hell, you could even write a review...
Have you actually seen "Taxi to the Dark Side" yet?
That's great, but if you really want to hurt the guy, ask him if he's seen Max Payne yet. Then encourage him to see it...
Governor Sarah Palin came to our city recently and a bunch of us showed up to razz her and to be rude. A conservative commented on the story on our local IMC:
"It is so nice to see so many patriotic, well-wishing,
Americans cheering in a wonderfully behaved manner. NOT!!!!!
"They are the typical Left rabble rousing, hate mongers one has come to expect at the oppositions rallies. Anyone with views to the right of the Left's anti Americanism is deemed all manner of vile 'things.' May they reap what they have sown."
So I responded:
"DDay from Hullabaloo details them many illegal (or what should be illegal) and immoral actions that Dear Leader is up to
If America were being run by a decent and moral crew instead of the criminals we've got now, then asking for civility on the part of lefty protesters would make some sense."
Funny, but our commenter never came up with a smart-alecky reply to make in response. Big problem of course was that DDay (Who actually spells his name as dday) started off with "signing statements" and those are awfully hard to pass off as legitimate legal tools.
