Why Republicans Attack Unions

Scott Hagerstrom of Americans for Prosperity explained, “We fight these battles on taxes and regulation, but really what we would like to see is to take the unions out at the knees so they don’t have the resources to fight these battles.”

It’s all interesting, but the words above can be seen starting at one minute, forty-eight seconds into the clip.

Rep. King Lies Twice In One Day

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) falsely proclaimed today that “not one terror-related case in the last two years involved neo-Nazis.” But there’s proof he’s lying, right here:

Police: Bogle Street man waves Nazi flag, threatens to cut gas line during hourslong standoff

According to Lt. David A. Gouveia ….

“Vieira was uncooperative and began shouting racial slurs out the window,” Gouveia said. “Vieira stated he broke a gas line in the apartment and would blow up the building.”

“Vieira hung a Nazi flag out the window, started barricading the doors, shouted ‘Heil Hitler’ and turned off the lights,” Gouveia said.

More details on more neo-Nazi terrorism here….

Chairman King also asserted that he never said there are “too many” mosques in America. However, that’s another lie. Check it out here….

“New York Rep. Peter King, a prominent House Republican, said there are “too many mosques in this country” in a recent interview with Politico.”

Rep. King has tried to deny this remark, but there’s video, available at that same site.

Rove Lies and the WaPo Reports

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/plum-line/2011/03/right-leaning_think_tank_says.html

Right-leaning think tank says Rove group “misrepresented” its data in ad attacking public employee unions

By Greg Sargent

As you may have heard, Crossroads GPS, the group founded by Karl Rove, has gone up on the air with a new 60-second ad that attacks public employees and the Democrats who support them as greedy thugs. The spot, which is backed by a $750,000 buy, represents a national, high-profile effort to turn around a public opinion war the right seems to be losing as the Wisconsin standoff drags on.

But now the fiscally conservative think tank that the ad itself cites as the source for one of its central claims is accusing Crossroads GPS of misusing the think tank’s data. The author of the Cato Institute study cited in the ad tells me the spot “misrepresents” his study’s findings.

Can We Stop?

Can you please stop treating the Republicans like they have good governance on their agenda? Based on the truth of what they say and and the impact of what they do, they don’t care about truth, justice, or the American way.

The World As Republicans See It

I will endeavor to post as many actual, factual Republican ideas, initiatives, policy proposals, legislative bills, statements to the media, and whatever else reveals their thinking and their agenda, as I can. But obviously there are millions of them and only one of me.

So please help me out. Use the comments to add your own “catches” of actual, factual Republican ideas, initiatives, policy proposals, legislative bills, statements to the media, and whatever else reveals their thinking and their agenda. Every verifiable entry will automatically enter you in my monthly drawing to win a fabulous prize. (When I know what it is, I’ll let you know.)

The point of all this is to collect and provide a place where ordinary folks can come to cut through the rhetoric and “speechifying” to find out what Republicans really say, do, and want. The more we know about Republicans, the more honestly we can evaluate whether or not we want to vote for them.

Thanks for your help, and your participation.
