Bridging the gap between truth and distortion

September 9, 2008

A s usual Obama is two steps behind his competition, lying all the way.
He’ll get nowhere at the rate he is going.

Obama accuses Republican rivals of dishonesty

Tue Sep 9, 2008

“I mean, you can’t just make stuff up,” Obama said of a new McCain ad that says Palin “stopped the Bridge to Nowhere.” “You can’t just recreate yourself. You can’t just reinvent yourself. The American people aren’t stupid.”

No Barack “the American people aren’t stupid”
STOP acting as if we are.

About that bridge to nowhere

[…]Conservative bloggers point out that in their campaign against Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, Alaska Democrats gave credit to Gov. Palin for helping to kill the Bridge to Nowhere.
“Gov. Sarah Palin said the $398 million bridge was $329 million short of full funding, and only $36 million in federal funds were set aside for it,” the Democrats say. “She said it was clear Congress had little interest in spending any more money for it and that the state had higher priorities.”[…]

Since Obama is in the finger pointing mood he should of included himself
and his side kick Joe Biden in his “bridge to nowhere” accusations.

The Palin Threat: Real Change

October 20, 2005.

Scene: The United States Senate.

Players: Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, Arizona Senator John McCain, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, Delaware Senator Joe Biden, Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn.

Subject: Coburn’s amendment to remove the $223 million Alaskan “Bridge to Nowhere” from a Senate Appropriations bill and use it instead to repair the heavily damaged Interstate 10 bridge over Louisiana’s Lake Pontchartrain ruined by Hurricane Katrina.

Results: Intimidated by the power of Appropriations Chairman Stevens, who angrily threatens to resign if he doesn’t get his way, the Senate votes 82-15 to deny the funds to Louisiana and the Katrina victims who need the bridge.

Senator John McCain, a longtime opponent of Stevens and the Bridge to Nowhere, is not in the Senate the day Coburn brings up his amendment, but is well on record as opposing the Alaska bridge. His relationship with Stevens over the issue of earmarks has been explosive. Senators Obama and Biden vote for this Stevens earmarkagainst giving the Bridge to Nowhere money to the Katrina victims who need their bridge rebuilt.

Meanwhile…[…]

Seriously what a smarmy hypocritical bastard.

    As someone else has remarked, you know the left is running scared when they have to resort to such smear tactics, innuendo, and downright lies.
