SMASH THE LIARS
I am particularly offended at the Fox News shills who say they don't like Obama, and want to vote for McCain.
One of these groups are the ignorant hucksters calling themselves Native Americans Against Obama.
They have a short video, which is linked in this piece of filth of a post, I respond:
The video is about S1779, a bill for Native American education funding and other purposes, and S1859, an agriculture bill, S2363 a Veteran's Affairs Bill, and a few other bills. Apparently, someone is upset that Obama doesn't make all the votes.
This video is WRONG ON EVERY COUNT.
Who missed the most votes? JOHN McCAIN, BY FAR! And his primary campaign ended MONTHS BEFORE that of Obama.
On individual votes:
The first mentioned is S1779. This has never been before the U.S. Senate. It did appear before the Senate Indian Affairs Committee. They approved it, but I don't have a vote breakdown. ONLY DEMOCRATS sponsored this bill. McCain is on the Indian Affairs committee, Obama is not, but, like I said, I can't find a record of the vote on reporting the bill.
McCAIN VOTED AGAINST S1859, OBAMA DID NOT VOTE ON IT.
The official record.
And you want to support McCain? Someone will have to explain to me how McCain voting AGAINST SOMETHING YOU WANT is better than Obama not voting at all on a bill which passed easily.
In fact, bills which pass easily are the ones that can be missed.
I can't help but be insulting now, since I take politics very seriously (former Marine, campaign volunteer, worked for the Dept of Vet's Affairs, and stuff). One of a few things has happened here. Either you are a bad researcher, or you are intentionally deceiving people.
