Fact is that Obama and Biden sided with the good old boys club in the Senate and voted against stopping the bridge and using the funds for Katrina reconstruction efforts. To criticize Palin for being for it and then against it when they themselves are not only voting for it but also voting against shifting the funding is a bit hypocritical isnt it?
The fact also is Obama and Biden should be asked if they supported the bridge when the voted for it , but then I dont see the media doing that..
And really they should be answering the question why they voted against shifting the funding to the katrina effort, because if they had of done that then the excess money wouldnt have been sent to Alaska after the project was cancelled.
THIS entire thread is BASED upon the hypocritical stump speeches PALIN has been delivering. The entire issue was raised by her and framed by her alone. As a counter arguement the opposing side check the facts. The truth did not match up with her claims, plain and simple.
I hope the GOP runs head long into it's own web of deception. This is a matter of strategy and in this case the GOP strategy has BACKFIRED! John Mccain himself has over 150 well established lobbyist running his campaign of "reform". Once again
he chose to reframe the election and he will have to conceal the truth in order to
support his STRATEGY. This "bridge to nowhere" was a self inflicted wound as is his
The "reform" platform is in itself a linguistic oxy moron and possibly a political one at that.
1. Favoring traditional views and values;tending to oppose change..
This supports my belief that his strategy is a self inflicted political suicide. Can he spin his way out of it??? Maybe...
DO not blame the players, blame the strategy...
