George Bush's Fact Problem

| Mon Feb. 15, 2010 4:34 PM PST

Former Bush press secretary Dana Perino, responding to a Jonah Goldberg post about press strategies, says:

....it reminds me of something I used to say at the White House when people would complain that we had a communications problem on this or that. Sometimes that was true, but that was usually because we had a fact problem.

Surely this deserves a followup. Perino says that when Bush had a problem getting his point of view across, it was "usually" a fact problem. That sounds like a lot of fact problems. I'd really like to hear more about this.
