Let me put the matter bluntly: an awful lot of the e-mailed messages zipping around the Internet are lies — and too many are being sent on by gullible, lazy friends who ought to know better.
Yes, along with $87 billion worth of other things. But Bush didn’t send enough in the first place.
President claims 1995 Kerry plan would “gut” the intelligence services. It was a 1% cut, and key Republicans approved something similar.
Attack ad revives question of whether Kerry’s numbers add up.
Citizens United TV ad calls Kerry a “rich, liberal elitist.” But Bush is rich, too. So was George Washington.
A TV ad from an anti-Bush group says so. But it’s based on a study that actually says something different.
His first three TV ads are downright bland, with lots of generalities and few facts for us to check.
Campaign says Internet ad is to ‘set the record straight.’ But it contains some distortions.
Kerry said Feb. 26 that Bush’s budget deficit is “the largest in history.” But by the most important measure that’s not quite true. Half a trillion dollars is the most ever, but several others have been worse relative to the size of the economy.
Kerry voted often against nuclear missiles and bombers in the ’90s, but GOP claims that he opposed a long list of conventional weapons are overblown.
