Nixon morphs to Bush

February 7th, 2006

Vote McGovern — Andy Warhol/Supernova: Stars, Deaths and Disasters 1962-1964 at the Walker right now has an ad campaign where Nixon morphs to Bush (here’s the ad). Been there, done that, but here we go again.

From their ad, a direct quote, they ask we consider these key facts (citations embedded):

* First, the president said publicly there was no such program. He said,
“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.” [1] He lied.

* For weeks, Gonzales, President Bush and others have insisted that the
wiretapping program was only applied to suspected terrorists [2]. But
just last Sunday, the Washington Post exposed that the program was
broad and not limited to suspected terrorists. In a nutshell, it’s a
fishing expedition and participants are increasingly “uncomfortable
with the mountain of data they have now begun to accumulate.” [3]

* And yesterday, the attorney general said that he could not assure the
Senate that the program did not eavesdrop on innocent Americans [4].

Yup, deja vu all over again…
