Clark DIDN'T praise Junior!

MWO just caught the Rovian spin artists by the short-feathers.

As most of you know, Drudge took a dump yesterday with his videotape of Clark praising various Bushies during a Republican event in 2001. He also that "President Bush" was praised by Clark. The quote, as presented by Drudge, was as follows:

"President George Bush had the courage and the vision... and we will always be grateful to President George Bush for that tremendous leadership and statesmanship."

MWO went looking for the transcript (here) and found that the full quote was as follows:

We couldn't quite believe it. I mean Desert Storm was wonderful; we whipped Saddam Hussein and all that sort of thing. But the Cold War was over, the Berlin Wall was down. And President George Bush had the courage and the vision to push our European allies to take the risk to tell the Russians to leave, and to set up the conditions so all of Germany and later many nations of Eastern Europe could become part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, part of the West with us. And we will always be grateful to President George Bush for that tremendous leadership and statesmanship.

In other words, Clark was praising Bush 41, not Bush 43!

MWO also caught Tucker Carlson explicitly saying that Clark was praising Junior. Does Carlson know the truth or is he just passing on the spin?
