    Bush and McCain Lie About GI Bill...Again

    After coming out against the bill day after day, the Webb GI Bill passed with enough support that the President couldn't very well veto it. So instead he went out and took credit for it:

    Quote Originally Posted by President Bush

I want to thank members who worked hard for the GI Bill expansion, especially Senators Webb and Warner, Graham, Burr, McCain. This bill shows that even in an election year, Democrats and Republicans can come together to stand behind our troops.

    Note that he also acknowledges John McCain on the list of Senators. McCain didn't even vote for the bill! I mean, sure if you vote for it, then twisting it to make it look like you played a role is somewhat ok, but to come out against it and then take credit???

    I guess this stuff shouldn't be surprising any more. Oh well it's all McSame in the end as McCain went out today and also talked about the bill. I'll see if I can get a quote of his.

    this wasn't lemons, this was something good

    I caught an interview of Webb last night making some great points about McCain. He said he was sick of McCain saying that the troops support the republicans political positions when in fact the troops are split about like the rest of the american public on political issues, they do support the country and fight for the country, not a political party's ideology. Get em Webb. This guy would be great as a VP

    I do believe that is what he is gearing up for. I would love a Obama/Webb ticket.

    Wait a politician lied and or deceived???


    pretty much business as usual I guess
    Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government, owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.-Theodore Roosevelt


    There's no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders.

    He's good for both votes from both sides as well as actually being a quality person to be in there.

    A decorated war hero to counter McCain's history. A Former Republican who can get both sides of the aisle. Knows the runnings of the military like the best of em.
