So, I'm surfin' around because I don't want to do whatever I'm supposed to do and a come across the Think Progress web site (Great Progressive blog). Been there before but I found a clip from Bush's April 2004 visit to Buffalo. In this speech where he is selling the virtues of the Patriot Act, our President says:
"Secondly, there are such things as roving wiretaps. Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires — a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we’re talking about chasing down terrorists, we’re talking about getting a court order before we do so. It’s important for our fellow citizens to understand, when you think Patriot Act, constitutional guarantees are in place when it comes to doing what is necessary to protect our homeland, because we value the Constitution."
Well, I figured that this clip was bootlegged from a Democrat that happened to sneak into the speech but NOOOO. The whole speech (transcript and video) is on the White House's web site.
How crazy is that? I can prove that the President lied to a bunch of folks in Buffalo by using the White House's web site.
