Ok, this is a MEDIA conspiracy post, not just a left/right posting so take a bit of care with responses. I am not taking a swipe at Democrats and I am
not defending the current Republican Administration.
If you read FactCheck
You can see Factual accounts of the major Democratic candidates LYING and exaggerating*
*yes.. please, I KNOW the Republicans do it also!
Why do the Dems get a free ride? Why doesn't the average American know about these lies? For instance,
From the article:
>>" Clinton puffed up her role in stopping the "Bush administration" from taking back signing bonuses from those later wounded too seriously to
complete their enlistments. Actually the Pentagon said its policy has been not to reclaim such bonuses and that a bill the Army sent to one soldier
was an isolated case that was reversed."
This is WRONG to assert this, but once it is asserted everyone believes it and it isn't right. She does this constantly, from exaggerating her role
in in the senate and WH to denegrating her opponents record.
>>"Obama accused the Bush administration of failing to make "any serious effort" to encourage use of alternative fuels or raise fuel efficiency of
automobiles. In fact, President Bush has signed major bills that do both."
Again, this is WRONG to assert this, but once it is asserted everyone believes it and it isn't right. Bush may not show up at EarthDay with bells
on, but to lie about his record shows the Dems are just as bad.. and if they lie NOW....
>>"Edwards said he dropped his support for the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste storage site in part because of a scandal over forged documents. But he
switched his position in 2004, and the scandal came along a year afterward."
On and on it goes..
Keep in mind these are the most recent lies.
All THREE are lyers and no one in the media seems to care?
If they report it on Fox news, everyone groans and rolls their eyes.
My point is that Dems seem to be able to lie and embellish their roles and especially lie about what the opposition has done on established recorded
and fully searchable bills and resolutions and yet the media never takes them to task...
Why is Clinton allowed to espouse Bushs (remaining if any) character by asserting he is "taking back signing bonuses from those later wounded too
seriously to complete their enlistments." without anyone questioning it?
Again, I realize the republicans do this as well and yes, they sometimes get away with it, but there seems to be a consensus online and in general
that the Dems are good guys and the Repubs.. bad.
Republicans are not baby kickers and dog killers... I am tired of us being portrayed that way.
I believe there is a conspiracy.. do you?
