  •  It's not revisionist, it's badly stated. (0+ / 0-)

    The first quote certainly does give the impression that he's engaging in revisionist history and repeating Bush's Big Lie, but apparently, that's because he left a false impression of what he meant.

    •  Since he had nothing to say about the invasion (4+ / 0-)

      Then he did not separate the NOW from the THEN.
      Irresponsible and revisionist.

    •  It's reiterating Bush's lie. (0+ / 0-)
