Bush starts parsing his words: "absolutely" doesn't mean "absolutely" any more 

Funny, for a guy with such an absolutist mind-set.


Bush said in a television interview over the weekend that he and would be willing to open up his entire military file, would "absolutely" be willing to authorize the release of anything that would settle the controversy over his service in the Texas Air National Guard during the Vietnam War.

White House press secretary Scott McClellan appeared to step back from that pledge, telling reporters: "If there is new information that comes to our attention we will let you know - if it's relevant to this issue."

Move along, people! Move along! There's no story here. And it gets better:

While Kerry, who earned three Purple Hearts, surrounds himself with fellow veterans on the campaign trail, the White House has not been able to produce fellow guardsmen who could attest to Bush's attendance at meetings and drills. "Obviously we would have made people available" if they had been found, McClellan said.

What, Bush didn't have any buddies?
