Bush Knowz History
President George Bush had this to say on Conservative Print Media Journalists Day:
That's what makes this more difficult – I don't know what Harry Truman was feeling like, or Franklin Roosevelt. But I do know – I'm sure there were moments of high frustration for them – but I do know that at Midway, they were eventually able to say two carriers were sunk and one was damaged. We don't get to say that.
Roosevelt didn't get to say that either, Mr. President, because we sank four Japanese carriers in the battle of Midway.
I learned that in grade school, but perhaps the president picked that up from a low budget movie about World War II he caught on the boob tube.
