BUSH AND CHENEY LIED: "Tearful" Dover AFB Visits Never Happened
NO TIME TO HONOR AMERICA'S DEAD: BUSH/CHENEY HAD OTHER PRIORITIES, LIKE WHEN THEY MISSED THE VIETNAM WAR
by Gordon Duff, Staff Writer
VeteransToday.com - President Bush and Vice President Cheney claimed they had repeatedly visited Dover AFB to honor American war dead. Their claim that this was done quietly, with no cameras and no publicity is now proven to have been a total lie.
Neither Bush nor Cheney ever visited Dover. Neither came there, even once in 7 years of war, despite their stories told of tearful experiences that simply never happened.
This week, while attacking President Obama for a public visit to Dover to honor war dead, Vice President Cheney's daughter Liz again repeated the stories President Bush and her father told, now known to be lies.

Lynn Krogh, Chair of the New York State Young Republicans, has released the following statement regarding Tuesday's special election for the 23rd Congressional District:
"After learning yesterday of Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava's "selfless" act of dropping out of the special election, I was proud of her for putting her constituents and the good of the party before herself. But after learning that she has formally endorsed her once Democratic opponent, it is obvious that her support for Bill Owens is based upon her inability to excite the Republican base in the 23rd District. Driven by bitterness, she would rather see a Pelosi-Democrat sitting in Congress than a member of her own party.
"Today, the Executive Board of the New York State Young Republicans voted to endorse Doug Hoffman for Congress. After looking at the two remaining candidates in this important race, Doug will certainly make an outstanding congressman. He has what it takes to stand up to Nancy Pelosi proving that we don't need socialized medicine or another bailout that will put our government further into debt.
"I urge all Young Republicans to hit the pavement and fully support Doug in the remaining hours of this extremely important election. He's clearly the best choice to replace John McHugh."
Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is urging New Hampshire residents not to eat ground beef that has been recalled due to possible contamination. These products were packaged between September 15-16, 2009 and may have been labeled with sell-by dates from September 19 through 28, 2009, and were sold at various stores throughout the State. DHHS urges consumers to review this recall information. There have been three cases of illness in New Hampshire linked to this contaminated meat. All the patients were hospitalized and two have recovered, but one patient died due to complications.
New Hampshire health officials are continuing to work with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the New Hampshire Grocers Association, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on this investigation. “E. coli is a bacteria that produces a toxin that is potentially deadly to people,” said Dr. Jose Montero, Director of Public Health at DHHS, “especially young children and seniors. People should prepare all meat products safely and cook to a proper temperature to prevent illness. For this recall people should check their freezers for any affected products and throw them away.”
Symptoms of E. coli illness include fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Most people recover within 10 days but a small percentage of people become extremely ill, with symptoms including hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which is characterized by the destruction of red blood cells and kidney failure. Most people recover from HUS but it can be fatal.
For more information about this recall and E. coli visit the USDA website at http://www.usda.gov/www.fsis.usda.govhttp://www.cdc.gov/ or call the DHHS Division of Public Health Services, Communicable Disease Control Section at 271-4496 or 1-800-852-3345 x4496.

(Manassas, Virginia) The following is a statement by Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, concerning today's withdrawal of GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava from the special election in New York's 23rd congressional district:
"In her statement announcing suspension of her campaign in the special election for New York's 23rd congressional district, Assemblywoman and liberal GOP nominee Dede Scozzafava refused to throw her support behind a fellow Republican, Doug Hoffman, who is running on the Conservative Party ticket in this particular race.
"That was one more example of the 'closed tent' mentality of big-government, establishment Republicans who have worked long and hard to keep conservatives out of power at the national, state and local levels.
"The GOP leadership's backing of Ms. Scozzafava was a slap in the face to Tea Party activists, town hall protesters, and conservatives across the country. The Washington GOP establishment's abandonment of fiscal responsibility led directly to the election of Barack Obama as President and Nancy Pelosi as Speaker. The American people see the GOP leadership and establishment every bit as much a part of the problem as the Democrats.
"Doug Hoffman and NY-23 is an earthquake in American politics, and is the first of many challenges to establishment Republicans that we will see for the 2010 elections and beyond. The stupid decision by Republican leaders to pour $900,000 into the NY-23rd race against a conservative has unleashed a fury that will lead to new GOP leadership.
"Conservatives anger at Washington-establishment Republicans will cost the national committees tens of millions of dollars as conservative money will start flowing directly to the Tea Parties and their candidates.
