From The Minneapolis Star Tribune, on October 13, 2004: “In 2004, the late former Republican governor of Minnesota, Elmer Andersen, announced…that for the first time in his life, he had decided to oppose an incumbent president of his own party because [President] Bush and [Vice President Dick] Cheney, in his words, ‘believe their own spin. Both men spew outright untruths with evangelistic fervor.’ He attributed his switch to President Bush’s ‘misguided and blatantly false misrepresentations of the threat of weapons of mass destruction. ‘The terrorist seat,’ he said, ‘was Afghanistan. Iraq had no connection to this act of terror, was not a serious threat to the United States, as this president claimed, and there was no relation, it is now obvious, to any serious weaponry.’ ”
