Tell the truth.

From the AJC Political Insider…

Reed didn’t mention the name of Abramoff, and his explanation omitted many details. But it included what has become stock phrasing in his public appearances: “If I had known then what I know now, I would have turned that work down,” Reed said. “What I do not appreciate, and what I am confident the voters of this state are going to reject at the ballot box, is an unfair attempt by the liberal media to engage in guilt by association. To associate me with the wrongdoing of others is wrong. It’s unfair and it will be rejected by the voters.”

——————————————————————————————-For what it’s worth, Ralph contacted Abramoff and asked for his help “humping in” business clients.  Read the emails between the two of them.  The facts speak loud and clear on who was helping who in regards to Jack Abramoff and Ralph Reed.  Ralph’s own actions, not his association, with Abramoff are the issue. 

When it is all said and done, Georgia deserves to continue to have public servants who put public interests above self interests.

    Erick, I don’t quite understand your comment. You were the one who brought up the Cagle event in Macon. This board was completely silent on the Cagle/Reed race before that.

    Why doesn’t Bull get a chance to express his subject matter without being harrassed about “We’ve already gotten the memo, Bull, let’s move on…?”

    Bill if you read both post you can see the difference. I was a Reed supporter in the early beginning. I now consider myself completely in the middle. The only reason I have not switched to Cagle only is the was his supporters act in reguards to Reed. I want Casey to beat Reed with issues and ideas not by saying Reed is the Great Satan, beware. It is just tiring to constantly here the same thing over and over and over. Come on Casey if you are now the lead Candidate for Lt Gov work it. Supporters should also work it as Casey being in front. When in front never ever mention your opponent by name because any press is still press. I am very sick today and may be rambling. I FEEL (I am almost a Democrat today, ha ha) that Casey has the lead right now and I want his supporters to take the slim lead and turn it into a big lead.

    Your tone, Tommy, tells me that you aren’t willing to risk (read THROW AWAY) your vote or your credibility by continuing your support for Reed. You want to stop the Ralph bashing and make this race about the issues, but in the end, you will vote for Cagle, b/c you know it is the right choice. You, and the majority of other GOP voters in the state, that is.

    That is my psycho-analysis for today. I presume to know a lot about the way one thinks just by reading a single post, huh? The audacity …

    When a candidate for public office claims to be so morally superior to others and wraps himself in Christianity, his shortcomings are a serious issue. Especially when it comes to telling the truth.

    I’m sorry if you disagree. I do not think Ralph is the “great satan”, but I don’t think he should be running for office. That’s it.

    We need a truth squad to keep him honest, because he can’t tell the truth about his involvement in the Abramoff mess.

    Hey, I just heard that Reed zealots went around Atlanta grabbing all the copies of the Creative Loafing cartoon cover story “The Book of Ralph” out of the left-wing newspaper’s distribution boxes. I wonder if these were the same guys who threatened the mayor of Valdosta? Well, I for one think it could not possibly be true. I mean, would real Christians actually do something like that? And, after all, it was on the Web and got more hits than any story in the history of Creative Loafing’s web page. CL is going to KEEP it posted at the bottom of it’s web page. D’oh!
