Your Opinion: Lie helps secure victory, award

Your Opinion: Lie helps secure victory, award

May 13th, 2014 by Harold Horstmann, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

I'm writing in reference to the "CelebrityNews" piece on page two of the May 5 issue of the News Tribune whereby the Boston (AP) reported "President George H.W. Bush has been honored with a Kennedy "courage" award for agreeing during his presidential term to raise taxes to confront a spiraling deficit."

Boy with that lie ("Read my lips, no new taxes") getting him elected and even winning an award, Obama's definitely a shoo-in!
