The Bush campaign is starting to attack John Kerry as being in the pocket of the special interests. Here are a couple interesting facts from the Washington Post:
1) Pres. Bush has raised 4 times as much from special interests than John Kerry in this campaign. That's FOUR times as much.
2) Who says you can't buy the policy of your choice? During the 2000 contest, electric utility lobbyists gave an unprecedented amount to Bush/Cheney and it paid off big time. One lobbyist -- Thomas Kuhn -- met at least 14 times with Cheney's energy task force. And they weren't talking about duck hunting, either.
3) Of Mr. Bush's pioneers -- those who raised $100,000 or more in the 2000 campaign -- 21 snagged ambassadorships. I didn't know they were for sale.
One of the many made-up scandals in the Clinton administration was the Jefferson bedroom-for--sale tale. In the Bush administration, everything is for sale. Everything. And I'm sure all those policies are the best thing for everyday Americans.
To my Republican friends who are parents, please explain to me why you think drinking water and air that is more polluted is better for your kids? Or do you just not care?
