Democratic Press Release Calls For GOP to Come Clean On CBS Memos
DNC ^ | 9/21/04

Posted on 09/21/2004 2:09:30 PM PDT by harrycarey

For Immediate Release September 21, 2004 Contact: Jano Cabrera 202-863-8148

MCAULIFFE: WILL GOP ANSWER IF THEY KNOW WHETHER STONE, OTHERS HAD INVOLVEMENT WITH CBS DOCUMENTS?

Washington, D.C. - In response to false Republican accusations regarding the CBS documents, Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe issued this statement:

“In today’s New York Post, Roger Stone, who became associated with political ‘dirty tricks’ while working for Nixon, refused to deny that he was the source the CBS documents.

“Will Ed Gillespie or the White House admit today what they know about Mr. Stone’s relationship with these forged documents? Will they unequivocally rule out Mr. Stone’s involvement? Or for that matter, others with a known history of dirty tricks, such as Karl Rove or Ralph Reed?”

Hard to believe that McAwful isn't a GOP plant, isn't it? I swear, I'm gonna cry when he leaves the job!

Your post made me think about a situation in business I was involved with about 8 years ago. The CEO of our only competitor at the time was so arrogant, so deceiving, so 'McAwful' that I literally used to pray at night that he wouldn't quit or get fired or die. He helped our small company, at that time, grow quite large at their expense.

Many times I have felt the same way about McAwful. He is NOT a plant. He is just SO blinded and misguided by power and position and so deep in an intricate web of lies, he literally cannot make a sound judgement.

I pray for President Bush's enemies to be revealed by truth, to be shamed by truth, and to fear the truth. This past week, I truly feel that God is answering our prayers and that He is beginning to take a hand in this demise...revealing the lies of His enemies in ways that no man could orchestrate.

The best is yet to come. October should be interesting...a roller coaster ride both ways!

Check out this thread at DU. They honestly believe this utterly contrived crap.

Knowing Roger Stone is vile only means he is capable of this. We have to figure out how to link him to the documents and ideally to Buckhead.

Isn't it odd. Someone feeds forged docs to a news outfit. And what do you hear. Outrage, ire, send in the lawyers, find out who hoodwinked us.

Nope, you hear sandbags being piled outside the door.

The hounds aren't barking and that tells you all you need to know about who is behind the story.

No, McAuliffe isn't stupid, but he thinks the American public is. I'm betting he's wrong, and that the election will prove it.

Reminds me of an old classic....

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met but, somehow, now it's my fault."

Now why would Burkett take them if they were a set up from a Republican activist, then pass them off to Lockhart, then the DNC, and then to CBS? This is the dumbest spin I've ever heard. Even an idiot over at DUmmies should be able to see through this one!

Snippets from a c BS web story


The RNC: A User's Manual

NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2004

"I think the president's greatest challenge is getting beyond the hard-core right and the religious right and figuring out how to get back many of the suburban moderates who voted for compassionate conservatism — people who are fiscally conservative but socially moderate," Stone said.

Moderation In Everything (Visible)
But since the platform is unlikely to reach out to voters at the center, the action at the convention podium must do so. In other words, says Stone, "the less we see of Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell and their colleagues the better."

Bush Is Big
And indeed, the premier event of the convention is Mr. Bush's Thursday night address. Experts agree his speech is the week's crucial event. They disagree on the task he faces.

"I just think the president has to be himself," said Stone. "One of the reasons that voters like him, and one of the reasons that he connects with voters in the way John Kerry never connects with voters, is he is a plainspoken, regular guy."

Stone agrees that Sept. 11 is tricky territory.

"I think it is very risky but I have every confidence that the president will not do anything tasteless," he said. "There is a historical record: He was president of the United States when this happened; he did take decisive action."

But "at the juncture where you appear to be profiting from it, it is counterproductive."

"It was Karl Rove's genius, diabolical idea.
His thought process went something like this...

"I know, I'll create some fake documents that make Bush look real bad when he was in the TANG...."

Rove is even more of a diabolical genius than you give him credit for. Remember, CBS ran the documents by the White House before running the story on air. What did the White House do? Sent them back without comment. You can't get any funnier or subtle than that! LOL!

I was "lurking" over on the DUm boards, and they are absolutely going nuts about this. Just to satisfy my curiosity, I did a Google News Search on the words "Bush Memos Roger Stone." It came back with one hit that was absolutely irrelevant to McGoofus's press release. Believe me, fellow Freepers, the DUmer types are treading in rough water, and they're getting tired.

No, no, no. It's CBS that was standing by the memos before they weren't. It's the Kerry campaign who didn't know anything about the memos before they did. The DNC thought Rove forged them before they thought Stone did. Get it?

FWIW, Nixon never ordered the break in of Ellsbergs shrinks office nor did he have any beforehand knowledge of anything that happened at the Watergate Building that night.

When he found out after the fact he, tried to cover for his friends who were involved. He was a strong believer in loyalty among friends. John Dean had to know this and must always know the personal contempt that Nixon held him in after his testimony.

The charge of Obstruction of Justice was the impeachable offense which he resigned under the threat of.

He resigned less than half way through a second term that he won in the largest landslide in modern American history.

I wasn't talking about a political special forces operation; I meant a literal Special Forces op in which Army Rangers and/or Navy SEALS capture the entire DNC leadership.

McAuliffe isn't this stupid.

Unfortunately, McAuliffe isn't stupid at all. I think he's appealing to the DUer-type. Kerry is tanking fast and I think they've seen the writing on the wall. What has energized the Kerry campaign, to the extent there was any energy, is hatred for Pres. Bush. MA is stoking that hatred to keep it alive. That's also what the planned vote recount is all about. Keep their base angry for the next four years. These are issues that they can write about and use to keep the fans flamed. If Hillary is going to run in 2008, she's going to need the anger of these people to even begin to think about success.

Anyone with a brain should recognize that that kind of anger is what's killing them in this election. They're taking emotional positions rather than thoughtful ones, and it has cost them the likes of Zell Miller and MANY other conservative democrats.

They need a more moderate voice if they ever hope to offer a choice that this America will accept.

They would do well to jettison the Ramsey Clark, Teddy Kennedy wing of the party. They would be wise to reconsider the baggage associated with Hillary Clinton.

Any really smart Democrat patriot candidate will be saying and meaning, "I support these troops in the field. I support their morale. I will not bad-mouth this commander-in-chief with troops in the field. I might do XYZ differently (and here's how), but America MUST be there because the enemy has attacked us on our own soil. In domestic policy I have A2X different than Pres. Bush, and here is how I'd do it."

That kind of calm, rational approach would win back all of the democrats.

They need Harry Truman and his legacy, but they kicked him out of the party and had him speak at the Republican Convention!

I hate giving them advice, but I'm certain that Ramsey Clarkers/Hanoi Johns will NEVER take it. They are a blight on this land. For the sake of America this branch of the democrat party must die. Maybe something viable can be rebuilt.

I am really disappointed that the media – and not just the liberal media – have ignored this fact. How in the world did Tall Tales Terry KNOW on September 9th that the docs were fakes? He obviously had at least KNOWLEDGE of the fake docs, maybe more! I have e-mailed Michelle Malkin and suggested this as a story line. Hopefully someone in the media will take a look at this question.
