President Obama’s Nobel Prize speech contained the first movement of a historical rewrite. Power Line Blog reports that he said
Likewise, the world recognized the need to confront Saddam Hussein when he invaded Kuwait - a consensus that sent a clear message to all about the cost of aggression.
Power Line takes him to task for this, but really I think there was a general world community recognition. It was the Democratic Party in Congress who didn’t, voting in the Senate 45-10 against with Sentors Joe Biden and John Kerry in the “no” column. As Instapundit notes it’s the start of the same rewrite that’s been done with the Cold War where the opponents then become boosters when it’s politically convenient. I don’t see how the Democratic Party could survive if people actually remembered history.
