The madcap conservative assault on President Obama is beginning look like a reunion of the crazy uncles in the attic. From Rudy Giuliani to Paul Wolfowitz , the tarnished oldies have returned to addle the narrative still more.
You' ve experienced the reports of the former New York City mayor who has reincarnated to the extent that even his old friends remorsefully remember the good old days when he was called America's Mayor. And now, of all people, George W. Bush's hawkish former deputy defense secretary, Paul Wolfowitz, turned up on CNN Sunday to reassure us that Bush's cause was right and Obama's is not.
Addressing Obama's view of Muslims, Wolfie huffed:
"His word choice makes him look silly."
Let me tell you about silly word choices. As a member of the Bush pack that steered the U.S.into the invasion of Iraq, Wolfie had this to say on March 27, 2003:
"There's a lot of money to pay for this...the oil revenue of that country could bring between $50- and $100 billion over the next two or three years...We're dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon."
But as Seinfeld's George Costanza has told us: "It's not a lie if you believe it."
