McCain and Palin Continue to Lie About “Bridge to Nowhere”: Conservative Wall Street Journal Reports That “Record Contradicts Palin’s ‘Bridge’ Claims”

Today’s Wall Street Journal has a full article on Palin’s “Bridge to Nowhere” claims. Money quote:

Despite significant evidence to the contrary, the McCain campaign continues to assert that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told the federal government “thanks but no thanks” to the now-famous bridge to an island in her home state.

    What I care about is having leaders with a moral compass. Now that Palin has stated her lies about the Bridge, and her superiority to Obama with respect to experience, I hope that Americans will WAKE UP! Otherwise, the next four years will be like the last four years only worse. Palin’s inappropriateness for the position of Vice presidency is not the issue. McCain’s bending over to the will of the neocons and Rove is more at issue because it speaks to how little moral courage he has when it counts to stand up to his own principles.

    Why should taxpayers bail out AIG?

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senator John Kerry and more than 50 other members of Congress.

    Pelosi, in her most recent financial disclosure form, reported that her husband owned between $250,000 and $500,000 of stock in AIG, which ceded majority control to the U.S. government this week in exchange for $85 billion of loans.

    Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, disclosed that his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, had more than $2 million of AIG stock at the end of 2007, when shares were worth $58.30. AIG has fallen 85 percent this week to close yesterday at $2.69. The lawmakers’ aides didn’t respond to calls seeking comment.

    anybody who is wealthy—regardless of party—probably took a bath on AIG.

    what is horrific here is that a trillion dollars worth of wreckless investment is about to be socialized—thus sending a signal to wall street that it can behave wrecklessly and be bailed out.

    that’s why stocks went up at the end of the week—not because the economy is “fundamentally sound.”

    the bush administration is going to go down in history as being asleep at the wheel in the areas of both Iraq and sensible regulation and monitoring of capitalism—leading to enormous debt and the haphazard socializing of large segments of our economy.

    historians will be writing about this tragic week, and its implications on Americans, and America, for many years to come.
