False Accusations

I don't often get political here, but every once in a great while something happens that throws me into a fit of rage and makes it hard for me not to comment. The New York Times has recently researched and documented the truth about the so-called "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth". Who gave them their funding at this most opportune moment to speak out? You might be surprised. Why do their claims lie against what they have said in the past, and what the records prove? Will the TV watching public who has seen the commercial of these four individuals debunking Senator Kerry as a presidential candidate ever see this information? Hell no. An accusation gets so much more air time than does the truth.

This is the dirtiest presidential campaign I can ever remember, but the lies told are so blatant, I'm shocked that the incumbent candidate still has as much support as he does. It's because of things like this TV commercial and book written by the "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" that he still has the support of the general public, and everything about their campaign is false. Don't take my word for it, though. Research it for yourself:
