The Bush Lies Just Keep Piling Up.

I wondered about this last night, and was going to do some checking on it today. Looks like Kevin Drum has done the heavy lifting for me...

THE MINIMUM WAGE TAP DANCE....One of George Bush's lamest answers last night was his reponse to John Kerry's charge that he opposed raising the minimum wage:

Actually, Mitch McConnell had a minimum-wage plan that I supported that would have increased the minimum wage.

My initial reaction was pretty simple: "Mitch McConnell is a Republican. You're a Republican. The Republican party controls both the House and Senate. So if you supported McConnell's bill, why didn't it pass?"

The answer, of course, is that there was no such plan and no such bill.

Read the rest of the sorry story...As expected though, it's just more smoke and mirrors from an increasingly desperate Administration.
