And it doesn’t count that the report was started before the election. The report was a flawed and unfinished draft, drawn up by hacks, when Obama inherited it in January. That much is not Obama’s fault. But Obama had the opportunity to demand it be brought up to the standard of Bush’s 2001 report, maybe even waiting until July to release it. He didn’t.
Instead he read it, figured that about pegged us right-wing nutballs, and sent it on its way.
