Porn of the news business..

Fox would make Biden look even worse by using clips from more recent statements, like the one where he went on about Afghanistan possessing nuclear weapons.

Oh well, that's the news biz. Like when Dan Rather foisted the "Bush went AWOL" hoax on the public, and CBS news STILL kept him in the job for weeks after everyone knew it was a hoax.

Hey Dan Rather, how is it going with your forthcoming scoop in which you reveal the contents of Jack Ruby's Blackberry to the world?

But Bush did go AWOL from the Texas Air National Guard.

News for Toad: They did not have Microsoft Word when Bush was in the Texas ANG. The hoax was debunked years ago.

What does that have to do with anything? So you are saying that Bush was never AWOL from the Champagne unit for about 6 months?

Right, and Global Warming and evolution aren't real either because Hannity says so.

dmarks said...

I am saying it because the actual record shows that he served with honor, and was discharged at the end of his service according to that: honorably.

The only evidence to the contrary is "found" in documents written in the 1970s that were produced using 1990s Windows fonts.

Check the actual record: you are still riding a hoax-horse.

Or do you seriously believe that military officials were using Microsoft Word in the early 1970s?

There was even a 6 month gap in his pay stubs, don't try to rewrite history.
