Republican National Committee's (RNC) Chief Smearmeister Robert M. (Mike) Duncan, (sent) out an e-mail to his lemming-like followers yesterday and accus(ed) Reid of what Republicans would consider unpardonable truth-telling. Specifically, they call him on the following statements about George W. Bush:
- "Reid Called The President A 'Liar.' CBS' Bob Schieffer: 'You like him just fine, but you think he's a liar?' Sen. Reid: '[H]is policies--well, Bob, if you--I don't think we need to dwell on that, but I call them the way I see them.'"
- "Reid: 'He's violated the rights of the Constitution in many different ways. He's been here as part of a culture of corruption. ... [H]e's spying on Americans. ... [T]he Justice Department is now a hiss and a byword.'"
- "Reid Previously Called President Bush A Loser.' 'Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid called President Bush 'a loser' during a civics discussion with a group of teenagers at a high school on Friday. ... 'I think this guy is a loser.'"
OK, and all of this is a problem why? Anyone who still thinks Bush is anything but the worst president in U.S. history is probably so jacked up on thorazine that they can barely stand, so the judgment that Bush is a "loser" is probably a mild way to express the way most Americans feel.
