Bridge to nowhere Truth..

How come the MSM when talking about The bridge to nowhere forgets to mention that Both Obama and Biden actually voted for that bridge. They were even given a chance to move that money to the victims of Katrina and they said no!!

John McCain did not vote for the bridge...
I guess the real story doesnt serve the medias candidate..

Dang internet -- makes it darned tough to keep the MSM line together.

The MSM didn't bother taking this story up because there is no story. The bridge was part of a large omnibus spending bill, 93 senators voted yes, one voted no, and six (including McCain) weren't there for the vote.

I've been cutting and pasting in hopes that you guys would learn to use reputable news sources or learn what good writing looks like.

Please, no more newspapers with a circulation of 35 wing nuts.

In fairness McCain does get worked up over pork. Pork is dwarfed by something like the Fannie/Freddy/AIG/and others bail out. Also we would never of known who actually asked for the bridge to nowhere without Obama's bill.

When do we get our $223 million back?

In 2006 and 2007, Obama teamed up with Republican Sen. Tom Coburn to pass the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act, also known as "Google for Government." The act created a free, searchable web site – USASpending.gov — that discloses to the public all federal grants, contracts, loans and insurance payments.

You wouldn't know the truth if it bit you in the @$$! If you're gonna cast aspersions (the cut and pasters) and call me a liar at least be a man and call me by my tag.

OK, SoCo, I'll say it -- you're a cut and paster. There's nothing wrong with referencing things to back a point, but's it's irritating to see you continuously cut and paste entire articles into the discussion area of this forum. We'd like to hear more of what you have to say, rather than see your T-shirt collection.

And Civet, the point made was that Obama and Biden voted for the bridge's funding. Saying that they voted for it in an omnibus bill doesn't refute that point. They voted for it, and it's not dishonest to say so. I think it's fair to bear that point in mind when weighing their expressed indignation now as they bloviate about it in an attempt to score points against Palin.
