Wright is right. The only problem is the Democrats not pushing the truth as hard as they need to.Originally posted by: ProfJohn
Here is another great quote by Wright
Obama is doomed.We cannot see how what we are doing is the same thing al-Qaeda is doing under a different color flag, calling on the name a different God to sanction and approve our murder and our mayhem!
Right or wrong people will remember the sound bites and forget the 'context.'
Just ask John ?I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.? Kerry if you don't believe me.
For example, our need to correct you mitelling the $87B story for what, the 20th time? That Bush was against the $87B before he was for it, and that Kerry had the right position?
As I've corrected you many times, the facts are that Bush wanted the money spent if and only if the money were not paid for with taxes, but he insisted it be borrowed spending.
Bush said he would veto the spending if it were not borrowed money.
Kerry's position was that he was for the spending, but wanted it paid for, not borrowed. However, he was for the spending either way.
The first vote was for the spending with funding, not borrowing; Bush threatened veto, Kerry voted yes. It lost, in borrow-happy Republican congress.
The second vote was for the spending with borrowed money. Kerry checked the votes, and it was going to pass, so he voted no to show his disagreement with the funding method.
He explained all this at the time, it was the right position (assuming you support the spending), and the Republicans ran a dishonest, misleading campaign about it.
The fact is, Bush was more willing to oppose the spending than Kerry, he flip-flopped more than Kerry, and they hid this in the dishonest campaigning.
