Selective Amnesia

Over the weekend I got around to reading conservative reactions to our blogger conference call with President Obama last Monday, and Matt Lewis' response struck me:

... This is just like all the times President Bush hosted conservative blogger calls ... not.

Outside of the clever use of the 90s-era "not" joke (is "talk to the hand" next?), I would remind Mr. Lewis of this face to face meeting between the President and milbloggers, which resulted in positively gushing reviews, as did this meetup with talk radio hosts. Lewis actually went ahead and acknowledged this today.

The larger point is that conservatives tend to forget things when the forgetting serves them to make a point. Frequently, as in this case, that point is resentment.
