Bush doesn't lie; he tells "false facts"

From Nicholas Kristoff's column in today's NY Times:

"Like President Ronald Reagan, reality to [Bush] is not about facts, but about higher meta-truths: Mom and Dad are loving grandparents, Saddam Hussein is an evil man, and so on. To clarify those overarching realities, Mr. Bush harnesses 'facts,' both true and false."

Thank you for finally explaining this phenomenon so clearly, Mr. Kristoff. We feel a LOT better now, knowing that 1,100 U.S. soldiers have given their lives on the basis of false facts, not lies.
