The Republican National Committee is trying out a curious new fundraising tactic: Rewriting history. The organization is actually trying to convince Republican donors that George W. Bush was a principled conservative and a great president.
Maybe the people running the RNC have amnesia. Perhaps they’ve managed to block out painful memories. It’s even conceivable someone at the RNC raided the liquor cabinet and was three sheets to the wind when they crafted their latest fundraising pitch.
There has to be some logical explanation.
Surely, the folks at the RNC aren’t foolish enough to think that they can reinvent reality and manage to make President Bush appear like some sort of limited-government hero and free-market icon. They can’t possibly believe the American public is gullible enough to buy such an outrageous tall tale, can they?
