OKAY ONE MORE: SPINSANITY has another debunking piece on the Bush “trifecta” claim: the claim that during the campaign he cited war, recession, or national emergency as grounds for departing from a balanced budget. Spinsanity says it’s false, and they’ve got persuasive evidence. But — as I emailed them — I sure seem to remember Bush saying that, and they admit that lots of other people think they remember it, too: there’s just no evidence that it actually happened. Presumably this is a case in which memories of more recent statements are attributed back to the campaign? Beats me. I wonder, though, if the same phenomenon isn’t working with Bush himself.
