Bush and bin Laden, or when the "urban myth" happens to be true

George W. Bush on Osama bin Laden, Sept. 15, 2006:
"There's kind of an urban myth here in Washington about how this administration hasn't stayed focused on Osama bin Laden. Forget it. It's convenient throwaway lines when people say that."

George W. Bush on Osama bin Laden, March 13, 2002: "You know, I just don't spend that much time on him, Kelly, to be honest with you ... And I wouldn't necessarily say he's at the center of any command structure ... I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him."

Aww, Dubya probably made Darth Cheney quite proud there. Blatant lying takes some balls. Okay, I'll concede that Dubya probably didn't remember it was a lie, but still. Quite a whopper there, intentional or not.

Cliff had a joke about Dubya's approval rating that usually hovers somewhere around 35%. It's proof that you CAN fool some of the people ALL of the time.
