From The Daily Kos:  in an interview with CNN's John King, First Lady Laura Bush answered a question about her husband's infamous "Mission Accomplished" speech of May 1, 2003, by saying that (paraphrasing) "the fact is that the mission had been accomplished for those aboard the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln.  Their job was complete, and they were coming home."

 Then there is the dismay expressed by  Daniel DiRito of www.thoughttheater.com, speaking for many of us on Washington Monthly's Political Animal that even Laura Bush has caught the not-so-smart virus:  

Laura, Laura…the last remotely respectable inhabitant of the White House…even you…say it isn't so?

She also flip flopped about the singing of the National Anthem in Spanish…in less than 30 seconds she went from saying it was OK to saying it wasn't.

Yeah, the National Anthem statements were interesting.  The American Progress Action Fund's Progress Report yesterday had it on the "Daily Grill:" 


“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with singing [the national anthem] in Spanish.”
— First Lady Laura Bush, CNN interview, 5/3/06


“I think it should be sung in English, of course.”
— Laura Bush, speaking just 25 seconds later in the same interview, 5/3/06

The latest comment came when someone pointed out that her husband had said that it should be sung in English.  Way to stand by your man, babe.  Don't let those pesky thoughts of your own get in the way.
