7. The banner was the responsibility of the executive administration at the time
The original Bush speech (later edited) contained the words, "Mission Accomplished". The White House paid for the banner. The White House had the banner created. The White House delivered the banner. The White House hung the banner. The USS Abraham Lincoln was only 30 miles offshore and well within range of Bush's helicopter. These are all historical facts (some of which were originally falsely portrayed otherwise by the White House).

Rove may still be trying to pretend otherwise, but this is either pure ignorance at best or cold calculated illegitimate distortion of history at worst. I'll go with the later. Those dipshit GOPhers still think that if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes truth, and given the childish mentality of their constituents, they might be right for all practical purposes.
