Unheard of in modern political history and downright Orwellian is how the Republicans at their convention ignored their own most recent two-term president, George W. Bush.
In their collective group-think mode, do they believe that this will erase his eight-year tenure from our memories and rewrite the history of their time in office? No. I remember Bush and his terms in office. I also remember how America used to honor the position, if not the person. For that reason alone the Republicans' lack of any reference to him is a disgrace.
It is also an example of how the Republican Party is engaged in a massive distortion of reality.

In his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney said: "President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family."
