Bush’s Bio Blots Out Ownership Society


George W. Bush’s legacy is already being rewritten, according to ProPublica, an “independent non-profit newsroom” led by Paul Steiger, former managing editor of The Wall Street Journal.

Redlines to Bush’s official whitehouse.gov biography include deleting a prominent reference to W’s “ownership society.”

The original biography: “President Bush worked with the Congress to create an ownership society and build a future of security, prosperity, and opportunity for all Americans.”

The rework: “President Bush has worked to extend freedom, opportunity, and security at home and abroad.”
