I would like to see a link provided by "PaintChips". I'm not a fan of Mr. Stark (for the most part), but I cannot find any story about Mr. Stark calling former President Bush a "liar" during his speech. I'm looking forward to seeing the link. Thanks!
The idiots on the left have seem to have lost their way on Google.
“I’m just amazed that the Republicans are worried that we can’t pay for insuring an additional 10 million children,” he said. “They sure don’t care about finding $200 billion to fight the illegal war in Iraq. Where are you going to get that money? You are going to tell us lies like you’re telling us today? Is that how you’re going to fund the war? You don’t have money to fund the war or children, but you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the President’s amusement.”
Mr. Stark expressed neither shame nor remorse. Instead, he fired back a statement calling on Mr. Boehner and other Republicans to retract their opposition to the expansion of the state children’s health insurance program. “Leader Boehner and his Republican colleagues should apologize for their votes,” he said.
“The truth is the CHIP program allows states to cover children primarily through private health care plans. But President Bush’s statements about children’s health shouldn’t be taken any more seriously than his lies about the war in Iraq. The truth is that Bush just likes to blow things up in Iraq, in the United States, and in Congress. I urge my colleagues to vote to override his veto.”
Mr. Starks comments were the subject of an informal poll on CNN’s “American Morning” show, which related his remarks and asked “Should he apologize?” By early afternoon, 87 percent of 4,857 respondents said no. The results also carried a disclaimer: “This is not a scientific poll.”
