Why did Dr Paul vote YEA to condemn MoveOn and praise Gen. Petraeus?Submitted by orangechicken on Thu, 09/27/2007 - 06:45
I just saw the roll call from today's votes (get ready for war with Iran.... thanks Kyl-Lieberman!) and Dr Paul voted YEA to a resolution that praises Gen Petraeus and condemns MoveOn for their General Betray Us ad.
I want to know why (or if you guys have any ideas)?
The resolution is wrong on several levels:
1) MoveOn is perfectly within their right to buy an ad to say what they want (and it's perfectly within the right of the newspaper to refuse the ad)
2) General Petraeus is a mouthpiece for the White House so MoveOn wasn't just attacking. There's truth behind the ad.
So what gives? I expected RP to vote NAY especially considering point 1 above.
