    Here's what the Dem candidate for congress said at her public speech the other day to a group of Spanish speaking, and presumed illegal, people.

    Sorry... but I'm not buying.

    Maybe if you'd like to post a transcript of the whole exchange I might bite on this one... but my bet is she was talking about aiding the community as a whole... not her campaign.

    If it had been about her campaign, you'd have given us AT LEAST one quote with her talking about her campaign instead of a parenthetical allusion.

    Go to search news engine, type in Busby and see what you find. I don't think her website is going to throw up the transcript. On the other hand, when the speech started to make news, that's when she came up with 'mispoke'. Unfortunately even then, one doesn't need to be saavy politically to realize she was speaking to a self-proclaimed 'undocumented person' and she later says she meant to be speaking to 'all those under 18....'

    Whoops.

    Did you not listen to the mps link? She said it herself. She stepped in it big time there and it will probably cost her the election.

    Please see my sig for a detailed explanation of the difference between "amnesty", and "the comprehensive plan pushed by U.S. Sen. John McCain". The variance is subtle - I'll admit - but should be pointed out, in fairness to the plan's backers. :wtf:

    Busby's going to have to start brushing her teeth with Desenex after this one! :):):)

    Liberal trick #1.... when caught or if someone calls you on something you said that was obviously stupid or just outright nasty.... just claim that you were joking and that the other side doesn't have a sense of humor!
