When it comes to domestic policy advisers, Bushie sure does know how to pick them!
His last domestic policy adviser, Claude Allen, was arrested over allegations of "refund fraud."
And his current domestic policy adviser now admits to engaging to what essentially amounts to revisionist history.
Karl Zinsmeister now admits that he took a newspaper profile of himself, and altered text (including quotes attributed to him) and then posted it on a website without noting that he alterned the text.
For example, an original article attributed the following quote to Zinsmeister: "People in Washington are morally repugnant, cheating, shifty human beings." However, he changed the quote to: "I learned in Washington that there is an 'overclass' in this country stocked with cheating, shifty human beings that's just as morally repugnant as our 'underclass.' "
He tried to explain the unexplainable by saying that he has long studied the issue of class and morality, and that he probably would have used more specific language (that appears in the revised quote) that in the original quote. Huh?
Is anyone in this Administration capable of honesty? If you made a quote, own up to your quote, instead of trying to engage in revisionist history and change it to what you think you probably should have said, or wanted to say.
