Refuting Bush's Lies About Terrorism
So here is what concerns me. All this past week, Bush and his minions have worked the media relentlessly, stressing their phony message that they are the only ones who can protect us. As Dana Milbank noted in the Washington Post, Bush has basically divested himself of the Washington press corps and is back to holding staged events where no media are allowed. We now can see that his approval rating on terrorism is going up-- how many times can the Republicans get away with fearmongering? My concern is that opposing points of view are NOT being presented. Where are the credible voices to get on TV or on talk radio and present the facts about terrorism? Why can't we get through the media's conservative bias and refute his and Cheney's slanderous statements against Democrats?
See, as much as I wanna see him impeached, if we can't win back the congress, the Republican majority won't impeach the guy, no matter what he does. We *must* find a way to counteract the Bush spin, before we lose our chance to win back congress. That's my concern. As long as the mainstream media continue to ignore us, how can we get our message out before the average American becomes convinced (again) that Republicans are the only ones who can keep America safe?
