CNN is carrying yet one more instance of how the Bush lie works. This time it is about equal opportunity, quotas, and how Bush himself benefited from favoritism in getting into Yale. Well, Bush didn't really forget that, but to me it feels as if the irony of the fact that he's a legacy candidate into Yale seems to have flustered him so much that . . . well, this is how CNN puts it:
While Bush clearly stated his opposition to quotas, he also suggested that he was not opposed to affirmative action.Is this merely a flip flop, or is it a case of a man who really can't think and then speak what he thinks in front of others?
But he didn't explain what the distinction was.
"I support college affirmatively taking action to get more minorities in their school," Bush said as the audience laughed.
