  • AMERICANS FOR LIMITED GOVERNMENT RELEASE 'BLUE DOG' DEMOCRATS' VOTING RECORDS

    THE FREEDOM POST ^ | December 28, 2009 | Matthew Burke
    Americans for Limited Government (ALG) today released the voting records of some 90 Blue Dog and what it dubbed “so-called moderate” House Democrats on what ALG President Bill Wilson called “some of the most controversial votes of 2009.” “So-called Blue Dog ‘conservative’ Democrats in the House have long touted their caucus as being fiscally-responsible, but what emerges from an analysis of their voting records is a pack of lapdogs who have voted largely in lock-step with their more radical counterparts in House leadership,” said Wilson...

    In the increasing flurry of this election season's negative political ads, the Barack Obama campaign produced a TV commercial that not only attacks Republican rival John McCain, but also takes aim at an unusual target: a 31-year-old woman who was born alive after her mother's botched abortion. Obama's commercial predictably takes shots at the GOP campaign, calling McCain's ads "the sleaziest ever, truly vile." But when the screen shows clips of abortion survivor Gianna Jessen and the ad she made asking Obama to reverse his stance on born alive infant protection legislation, the Obama ad calls Jessen's appeal "a despicable...

    With a dozen or so U.S. senators giving serious consideration to running for their party's 2008 presidential nomination, voters will want to know how the political ideologies of these potential candidates rank among their colleagues. Arguably, voters can best discern the relative ideologies by comparing the votes they cast on identical issues. Both the nonpartisan National Journal and the liberal Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) have recently released their 2005 voting guides, ranking the ideological purity of members of Congress. Herewith is a review of those rankings among the five Democratic senators -- Evan Bayh of Indiana, Joe Biden of...

    Kerry and the Catholic Vote - By Gregory Borse I have been having a conversation with a friend of mine—a democrat who is also Catholic and leaning toward voting for John Kerry, but who is troubled by his stance on abortion but not more so than by President Bush’s prosecution of Operation Iraqi Freedom as a central front in the War on Terror. My friend thinks that Kerry’s voting record on abortion does not necessarily mean that it would be wrong to vote for him anyway—given that the Church teaches that voting for one candidate to prevent a worse candidate...

    Beware the Elegant Evil of John Kerry Written by Maureen Scott Wednesday, October 20, 2004 When President Bush refers to the "Evil Empire," he needs to add one more entity: The "State of Kerry." Mental state, that is. Just as we fear the irrational people who embrace terrorism, we have to fear the irrational state of Kerry's mind. The main difference between the candidates is that Bush speaks out against evil and fights our enemies in order to defend our country. In contrast, Kerry speaks out against Bush in order to advance his own image. He should take heed in...

To recover from the extreme ''stress'' of this routine, the senator took a week's vacation at his wife's multimillion-dollar getaway in Idaho.

    Some 20 Year Senate Record. What a joke! Just How Many Bills Has Kerry Passed? Bush said Kerry passed five bills. Kerry said he's passed 56. Who's right? That depends on the definition of "passed" and "bills." October 15, 2004 Modified:October 16, 2004 Summary At the final presidential debate, Bush said Kerry had passed only five bills during his career, and Kerry said he had passed 56.

The American people know President Bush to be forthright – a strong and decisive leader who persevered through the most challenging of times. We are exposed to quite a different story when the rhetorical light is shed on John Kerry. John Kerry’s image, in contrast, remains as fluid as his political posturing for he is completely immersed in an open-ended struggle to reinvent himself and camouflage his questionable past. Looking beyond his self-serving rhetoric and arrogant delivery, one finds the...

    The best reason to be skeptical that John Kerry has the gumption to defend America's vital interests and allies is not that he has been all over the map about this current war in Iraq. Although such erratic behavior is unpresidential, Kerry's unwillingness to support military action in 1991 against Saddam Hussein after Iraq had invaded and raped neighboring Kuwait is the best reason to question his judgment. The lesson of history -- Kerry's Senate vote against the first Iraq war that hindsight shows to be a reasonable and necessary conflict -- makes his claim that he would be willing...

    (CNSNews.com) - The question about what Sen. John F. Kerry has accomplished during his 19-year Senate career came up several times on Wednesday night. "I've actually passed 56 individual bills that I've personally written. And in addition to that, they're not always under my name. There's amendments on certain bills," Kerry said in the third and final presidential debate. But in a post-debate analysis on Fox News, Terry McAuliffe, chairman of the Democratic Party, was hard-pressed to name a single piece of major legislation bearing Kerry's name. The Republican National Committee released a press release quoting various people on...

With military action in liberating Iraq an election issue we thought we'd review who in the Senate votes on principle and who on politics when it comes to committing our troops to battle. We examined the voting record of each sitting Senator. We looked at the three votes authorizing U.S. military action against Iraq: 91, 98 and 2002. We looked for patterns where Republicans voted to support the two Bushes in 91 and 2002 and against Clinton in 98; and vice versa. We included those Senators who had cast votes when serving in...

    The Wonderful Voting Record of John Kerry By: Will Stewart October 12, 2004 Last Friday night, in the second debate, President Bush finally called John Kerry a “liberal.” Kerry responded by saying “labels don’t fit.” Conservatives take no issue with being called conservative (we’re actually proud of the label). Why is it that liberals are so opposed to a label describing who they are? It seems that we are reminded--about once a month--in the press that this country is split fifty-fifty, right down the middle, between liberals and conservatives. If that is true, then Kerry should take no issue with his voting record...

President Bush has demonstrated his commitment to keeping us safe since September 11. Despite the fact that there have been no further terrorists attacks on US soil; the Democrats portray the President as "weak" on National Security. Kerry claims that the Bush Administration failed to secure chemical plants, failed to adequately fund the Dept of Homeland Security and failed to have all air cargo screened for explosives. The predominant theme of the Kerry...

We not only fixed Medicare and took it way out into the future, we did something that you don't know how to do: We balanced the budget. And we paid down the debt of our nation for two years in a row, and we created 23 million new jobs at the same time. No, maybe I'm missing something, but I think he's referring to the 1997 Balanced Budget Act, which included provisions for...

    Special Post-Debate Release....10-1, 2004 Style vs. Substance Round 1 Written by JB Williams ©2004-09-30 Before even I become confused by the pundit’s efforts to tell me what I saw and heard last night, I’m writing round one of the 2004 Presidential debates in to my own history book. The answer to who won the first round will depend on who you ask. If you’re asking me, both candidates lost… John Kerry looked good, was articulate, on message, calm, forceful, yet uncharacteristically respectful. Bush looked tired, verbally stumbling at times, a bit too on message, forceful as expected, but almost agitated,...

    WASHINGTON - On the eve of a foreign policy debate with President Bush (news - web sites), Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites) said in an interview that his explanation of why he voted in favor of additional funding for the war in Iraq (news - web sites) before voting against it was "one of those inarticulate moments" in the campaign. Kerry ultimately voted against providing $87 billion for military operations and aid in Iraq and Afghanistan (news - web sites). Although he initially supported the appropriation when it was to be funded at least in part...

    “Strength builds peace. Weakness invites those who do us harm,” the ad says, a suggestion that Kerry would be a weak leader in wartime and a country headed by him would be vulnerable to terrorist attacks. The ad accuses Kerry of “refusing to support our troops in combat” and trying to severely slash intelligence budgets and eliminate military weapons after the first attack on the World Trade Center.

    The introduction was stirring. John Kerry (news - web sites) has "stood up for cops on the street, stood up for your air and your water, stood up ... to balance the budget, stood up and fought for our veterans," said his running mate, John Edwards (news - web sites). And where did he do all that standing up? "Two decades of fighting for you in the United States Senate." Republicans contend that Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee, has a lackluster Senate record and is trying to hide his 20 years there from voters. It's part of their effort to...

    You knew it was coming, and it has finally arrived. The " John Kerry is a liberal" ad is about to be unleashed. It's from a new special-interest group, Americans United to Preserve Marriage, headed by American Values boss Gary Bauer, who challenged President Bush for the White House in 2000. The ad notes Kerry's votes against anti-gay-marriage legislation and ends, "That's liberal. That's John Kerry. John Kerry, too liberal for America."

    Kerry knew in 2002 when he was preparing his "search committee" that, if his Senate record became an issue or was even talked about on talk radio, they would start at the beginning: 1985. If they did, he knew he was done-for. So he had to come up with some way of distracting conservative talk radio. I guess he rolled the dice and figured he would rather weather the storm over his post-Vietnam activites than have anyone talk about his first four years as a Senator. He probably figured his military record was enough to pull a few pro-military/anti-Bush conservatives...
