p.l.a. weighs in
Dwight Meredith wonders what would happen if the "liberal" media held Dubya to the same standard as it does Gore, who is of course "reinventing himself" once again as he reemerges onto the national stage. After all, "the ['liberal,' don't y'all forget! --ed.] media established consistency and truthfulness as the criteria for measuring a presidential candidate. If a candidate does not tell the truth, he or she has a character flaw that should disqualify them from the Presidency. Similarly, by the media’s criteria, the shifting of positions and “reinventing” of oneself is a character flaw that should disqualify a person from office."
His conclusion? "In one respect, the media’s coverage of the 2000 campaign was spot on. One candidate really does have a problem telling the truth and is constantly reinventing himself. There was just one little problem of mistaken identity."
But don't just take my word for it...Dwight spotlights numerous inconsistencies in Bush's positions.
