Rewriting history in real time

Former Presidential advisor Karl Rove is trying, once again, to rewrite history and put his former boss into a better light than he deserves.

Now Rove is trying to say the Iraq war was the fault of Congress, not the President who planned to invade Iraq from the day he took office in 2001.

Like so much else that comes out of the failed administration of George W. Bush, this latest flight of fantasy does not pass the smell test.

Rove's Version of 2002 War Vote Is Disputed – Former White House aide Karl Rove said yesterday it was Congress, not President Bush, who wanted to rush a vote on the looming war in Iraq in the fall of 2002, a version of events disputed by leading congressional Democrats and even some former Rove colleagues.
