Distortions Galore at Second Presidential Debate
« on: October 09, 2004, 02:55:12 PM »
Summary

Both candidates played loose with the facts at the second Presidential Debate in St. Louis Oct. 8. Bush claimed Kerry's health-care plan would lead to rationing and "ruin the quality of health care in America," a claim unsupported by neutral experts. Kerry claimed the Bush administration had forced the Army Chief of Staff to retire for pushing to send more troops to Iraq, but in fact he retired on schedule.

We offer a sampler of the dubious and sometimes false statements made by each of the candidates.

anyone with a functioning brain will "flip flop" sometimes.  bills change, new information is released, no issues are static.  its such a retarded attack but lucky for the republicans the majority of people in this country are idiots.

LOL.....seriously.

Although I do think after the 1st debate, Kerry did manage to weaken and at worst neutralized the effectiveness of "flip flop".
