Quotes from the Bush administration.
December 6, 2005 3:31 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for a website (not a specific one) that has a list of quotes from members of the Bush administration, with the quotes now obviously misleading, incorrect, and or lies. This is the kind of thing I am looking for. http://www.house.gov/schakowsky/iraqquotes_web.htm

At the moment I'm looking for quotes from the Bush administration, but I would be interested in other similiar quotes. Perhaps there is a website that specializes in this?

Also, Slate's Jacob Weisberg has been keeping a list of "Bushisms" that has been collected into several books.

Mod note: Bush on Iraq:: "The Bush Administration's Misleading and Inaccurate Public Statements on Iraq."

Representative Henry Waxman (D-California) had on online database that claimed to "identifies 237 specific misleading statements," but it's password-protected now. There's a 36-page report PDF.

Eliot Weinberger 's What I Heard about Iraq, which is similar to Revision Thing and was discussed on MetaFilter, has lots of quotes, but no attributions. (I started working on an annotated version, but gave up about 2/3 of the way through because it was taking too long.)

Via that MetaFilter discussion, Rotten.com's Iraqi WMDs.

"What I Heard About Iraq" was also published as a book, so the book probably has citations.
