Classics of Winger Rhetoric

According to a White House official here:

"The president of the United States is not a fact-checker."

Then again, back on July 5, Our CEO President himself told us:

"I'm the kind of person that likes to know all the facts before I make a decision."
(thanks to alert reader the reverend)

So who's lying? The official? Bush? Or both?

UPDATE: Thanks to the reverend. I guess I'll have to use that "Incurious George" riff another time.

UPDATE: Parseville!
Alert readers decode the carefully crafted, lawyer-like statements of Bush and his officials. Surprise! They turn out to be "technically accurate"!

"I said I was the kind of person who likes to know all the facts. ... That doesn't mean I actually look for them. I just like to think I know what they are." (thanks to Traitorous filth)
