Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Right Wing Pundits in the GOP Refuse to Admit They Lied about Terri Schiavo Memo

When the Terri Schiavo case came to the political forefront and Republican politicians – including GOP House Leader Tom DeLay and GOP Senate Point Man Sen. Mel Martinez (a former Bush Cabinet member) – started to champion the cause, a memo to Republican lawmakers leaked out containing claims like "this is a great political issue." The memo told how the GOP was going to use the Terri Schiavo case to get votes from the Christian Right in the 2006 Mid-Term Election. Republican Lawmakers and Republican Pundits insisted that this was a forged document created by the Democrats. Even those who knew the truth. Finally, Senator Mel Martinez, the former Bush Administration Secretary of HUD and Point Person for the GOP on the Terri Schiavo case had to admit that his office had written the memo. It was the work of his legal counsel, an experienced right wing operative who in addition to working in Republican congressional offices had been a lobbyist at a high-powered firm whose founders include a former chief of staff to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. DeLay called the Schiavo case MURDER! DeLay you will also recall supported his mother’s decision in 1988 to pull the plug on DeLay’s father who was in a situation similar to Terri Schiavo. The reaction of the Right to the revelation that a Republican Senator and former Bush Administration Cabinet Member was responsible for the memo they tried to blame on the Democrats? Silence! Just as President Bush whenever he is asked if he has made any mistakes they admit nothing. They just press on with further false claims to the American People. They American People will one day learn the Truth about the Republican Party. And when they do, it will seal the party's fate!
