GOP’s Tricks Leave Little Treats for American Voters
The Republican Party’s legacy under George Bush is more than just a little scary to working American families according to the Chairman of the Oklahoma Democratic Party.
“It's Halloween, and right on cue, President Bush is back to scaring the American people with the same tired, old attacks of 2004. But this time, the trick is on him. Americans want change, and a new direction,” Lisa Pryor said. “The list of tricks the GOP has played on the public is long and gives me the chills to know our Administration and Republican-controlled Congress think they can continue to run over our rights and liberties.”
Pryor said from the Iraq debacle, to the Jack Abramoff and Duke Cunningham lobbying scandals to the alleged cover-up of sexual predator Representative Mark Foley to wire-tapping the phones of Americans, the Republicans have proven to be out of touch with American voters. Pryor said Bush’s “War on Terror” has made America less safe at home and cost the lives of thousands of U.S. soldiers in Iraq because of the Republicans’ failed plans and policies.
“Democrats offer real solutions and honest leadership. Republicans have been inept at the issues they campaigned on like international safety and they have abandoned issues like job creation, affordable and accessible health care for all Americans, and equal educational opportunities. These are the issues that matter. These are the issues important to the American people,” Pryor said.
