Yesterday on "Meet the Press," former HP CEO and current McCain surrogate Carly Fiorina lamely attempted to argue that those who claim John McCain always supported President Bush on Iraq are trying to "change history." Unfortunately for Fiorina and the campaign she represents, we have footage of John McCain himself saying the exact opposite on more than one occasion. Here's a little compilation I put together calling out this blatant revisionist history.

Fiorina: But to say that John McCain was aligned with President Bush on the prosecution of the war in Iraq is to change history.

McCain June 2005:

"I will also submit that my support for President Bush has been active and very impassioned on issues that are important to the American people. And I'm particularly talking about the war on terror, the war in Iraq [...] So I strongly disagree with any assertion that I've been more at odds with the president of the United States than I have been in agreement with him."

McCain, 3/28/08:

“No one has supported President Bush on Iraq more than I have.”

It's pretty funny to watch the McCain campaign walk this tightrope as they attempt to embrace and reject President Bush at the same time. Luckily for us, the video tape tells the true story.
