And to Bush's statements that he doesn't know the man, even if he did have his picture taken with him, Abramoff supplies the editor of the Washingtonian magazine with an e-mail stating that he had talked to Bush nearly a dozen times.
Bush "joked with me about a bunch of things, including details of my kids," Abramoff recalled of his contacts with the president.
On Thursday, White House press secretary Scott McClellan said that "what the president said still stands."
Abramoff's e-mail states that Bush "has one of the best memories of any politician I have ever met." The e-mail said that Bush's ability to recall is one of his "trademarks, though of course he can't recall that he has a great memory!"
The e-mail adds, "Perhaps he has forgotten everything. Who knows."
Forgotten everything? Perhaps he's no longer mentally capable of fulfilling the duties of office.
