Bush Exaggerates Again!

Bush Unsure He's Been to Space Center ASSOCIATED PRESS SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) - President Bush is no longer so sure he's been here before. A day after telling reporters that Bush had visited Johnson Space Center while serving as governor of Texas in the 1990s, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer backpedaled from that assertion. "I think right now it's somewhat murky," the press secretary said aboard Air Force One Tuesday, en route to a memorial service for the seven Columbia astronauts who died in last weekend's tragedy. On Monday, Fleischer dismissed suggestions that Bush had not been interested in the NASA program before the Columbia crash and rejected a report that Bush had never been to the Space Center. He told reporters the president visited the facility near Houston in 1995 or 1996.
All through the 2000 campaign the media was unmerciless in dealing with similar examples where Gore mispoke about his experience. Do you think they will hold Bush to a similar standard? Yeah right.
