George Bush: Flip-Floppy on Genocide

George Bush in 2000, while running for President:

The Armenians were subjected to a genocidal campaign that defies comprehension and commands all decent people to remember and acknowledge the facts and lessons of an awful crime in a century of bloody crimes against humanity. If elected President, I would ensure that our nation properly recognizes the tragic suffering of the Armenian people.

Either “all decent people” doesn’t include the American people or American Congress, or George Bush egregiously misled Armenian-Americans about his intentions, or he's just gone John Kerry flip-floppy on genocide. Because as Congress sits on the verge of finally, finally recognizing the historical verity of this "genocidal campaign," Bush has tried to jam a Presidential sabo into the gears by asking Congress to vote down the Armenian Genocide resolution.

And I thought this was supposed to be the President of "moral clarity."
