"It didn't happen,"..."I hate to say this, but he's a serial exaggerator. If I was being unkind, I would say liar, but it is a habit he ought to drop."
Karl Rove on Joe Biden's latest trip down fantasy lane.
The Vice President, known to be... how do I put this?... "inaccurate"... at times is now saying that on several occasions he spent long afternoons giving President George Bush a piece of his mind.
The only problem with his latest fantasy is that every person in the Bush White House from Karl Rove down to the woman who waters the plants has said that these sessions and criticisms never happened.
What was the damning evidence the Veep's spokesman have to support the claims?
Biden spokesman Jay Carney declined to specify the dates of his boss's purported Oval Office scoldings of Bush. Nor would he provide witnesses or notes to corroborate the episodes.
"The vice president stands by his remarks," Carney told FOX News without elaboration.
Good enough for me. I believe him.
