Moonbat Senator Bernie Sanders wants a word with the Smithsonian

Check this out:

MONTPELIER, Vt. — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is objecting to wording accompanying a portrait of President George Bush installed at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington.

Sanders, a strong opponent of the Iraq war, has asked the Smithsonian to rewrite the text that says Bush’s two terms in office were “marked by a series of catastrophic event” including the “the attacks on September 11, 2001, that led to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.”

Sanders says the notion that the terrorist attacks were linked to or led to the Iraq war has been widely debunked.

In a letter to the gallery director Martin Sullivan, he has asked the Smithsonian to rewrite the text, to avoid what he calls rewriting history.

The article goes on to say that the museum is preparing a response to Sanders but didn’t want to comment publically on the “issue” he raised.

Here’s more, from the Detroit Free Press:

Bush’s portrait was unveiled at the museum on Dec. 19. Sanders said he thinks the portrait itself is “quite good.”

Sanders said he learned of the objectionable text from a staff member who visited the museum.

“You can agree or disagree with the war” the Vermonter said. “I simply think it’s important that history not be rewritten. Politicians spin all the time, but a wonderful national institution like the National Portrait Gallery should stick to the facts.”

(Sigh). It did. Only the most virulent of moonbats believe that Bush would have gone to war with Iraq had 9-11 not happened.
