Right Intention: Democratic Lies From Last Election

Democratic Lies From Last Election

From Ankle Biting Pundits I found this link about one of the Democrats more outrageous claims:

January Surprise - Rest in Peace
In memoriam of the January surprise, that the draft would be reinstated, which perished on February 1st, 2005. This memoriam is dedicated to Democrat Chuck Rangel, the lawmaker who introduced legislation to reinstate the draft that was promptly put down by his fellow lawmakers. This montage of quotes serves as a reminder of those who warned the draft was eminent under George Bush II


He has a lot of examples. Go check them out.

I've become so irritated with the Democratic party that I more or less tune them out now. It's better for my blood pressure. So because of that, I'd forgotten about some of the ridiculous claims by the party that were either mindlessly repeated or vigorously promoted by the media. The draft is a good example. What an amazing out and out lie, which was promoted solely to enhance the prospects of a Kerry victory. The proof? When was the last time you heard anyone claim the draft would be reinstated? You haven't, because the election is over. The lie will do no good now. Here are some more silly claims from the last campaign that were made solely to help Kerry's election prospects.

"RISE AND WALK"

Remember when John Edwards claimed Kerry would cure paralysis?

It turned out days later that the Kerry campaign has a plan -- nay, a promise -- to cure paralysis. What is the plan? Vote for Kerry.

I'm not making this up. I couldn't. This is John Edwards on Monday at a rally in Newton, Iowa: ``If we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to walk, get up out of that wheelchair and walk again.''


Look, I'm for stem cell research, provided it only uses the embryos that are sitting in fertility clinics that won't be used anyway. I do not want to see embryos created solely for the purpose of destroying them.

That said, isn't promising a cure for paralysis just to enhance one's election prospects a bit much? Isn't that just a bit over the line? And no one in the MSM called him on it. Not only was Edwards not criticized; the MSM replayed Edwards making this ridiculous claim, over and over again.


"WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!"

Remember the flu shot controversy? Remember the shortage that was blamed on Bush? Kerry even created an ad for it. Of course, now there is a surplus and a lot of vaccine will likely be wasted. Don't hear the Democrats or the media talk much about the flu vaccine now, do you? Why? It can no longer help the Kerry campaign. If the Democrats and media genuinely cared if the public got their flu shots, they would let the people know there is plenty of vaccine available.

"HEY, WE'RE TOUGH, TOO"

How about Democrats promising not to cut and run from Iraq? That was a good one. They said it with a straight face, too. Someone should have given the talking points memo to Teddy Chappaquiddick and these Congressmen. And just what is the difference between demanding a timetable for troop withdrawal and cutting and running anyway?

And John Kerry had the nerve to accuse Bush of having a cut and run strategy. And no one calls him on it. Amazing.

"DISENFRANCHISEMENT"

The "2000 election was stolen" is my personal favorite. There is not a shred of truth to it, but the lie nonetheless enjoys great currency with Democrats and the media. Funny, the Democrats do not show the same concern for alleged election fraud in Washington State or the State of Wisconsin.

These are yet more reasons why I don't take Democrats or the media seriously.
