Reality Checkered Past

I would argue that the White House is making a fundamental rhetorical mistake by devoting some of its website to a section called "Reality Check." Those who remember how the White House of George W.

Of course, the Bush administration produced several of these combative subsites at different federal agencies, which included "Mythbusters" at the TSA.
