Reporter: Bush lied about Blair House booking
President-elect Barack Obama was not allowed to move in to The Blair House, a guest house near the White House because the Bush administration said a foreign dignitary had been already scheduled to stay there. Margaret Carlson reported that there actually may have been no one scheduled to stay at the Blair House at the time the Bush administration made that Claim. Carlson suspect that a former Australian prime minister was later booked as an excuse to back up the Bush administration’s claims.
