    Is This For Real? If it is, This is pretty disturbing.....Could not access the link so I'm not sure if it's true or not.

    If you want to hear the Vice President speak in public then you should be prepared to sign a pledge to vote for Bush, otherwise you will be denied tickets.

    At least, that's what's happening in Rio Rancho, NM, for Cheney's appearance today. According to the Caspar Star Tribune, Democrats who tried to pick up their tickets were required to sign the pledge, as well as give their driver's license numbers and disclose if they associate with "veterans, pro-life, gun rights or teacher groups."

    Though it is common for screening measures to be employed when high-ranking officials speek in public, this is the first time a party loyalty oath has been a pre-requisite for listening to what our elected officials have to say. Is anybody else completely unsurprised that this didn't make any of the network news channels? Yeah, sure it's a liberal media. Right. That must also be why they gave so very much coverage to Sandy Berger being cleared of all charges.

    well, with the 'free speech zones' and all, doesn't suprise me a bit. Why would they want to taint "the golden image of truth" :rolleyes: with dissent?

    The link gives me a 404 error, and I doubt it's what you're making it to be. It's probably just a few activists who think they're doing the Bush campaign good (or harm) by this. I'd have to actually read the article to be sure.

    Agreed Hobbit, I'm not sure if it's true either...Will do some research on it. Just thought someone might have heard the same story.

    I can't get to the link either. Maybe that is why it's not on any "liberal" news shows,becuase it's not true. I have a lot a lot of trouble believing this. I know people that have seen Bush speak recently and none of this went on. The liberal media would be salivating if it were true.

    1) I don't think he was cleared.

    2) If he was cleared and there was a lot of coverage, that would actually prove the liberal bias once again because of how little coverage the theft received and how they focussed on the timing of it. Here is what I mean:

    Just remember there are half truths in the media. No matter what I read or who I read about - I have to consider there are two sides to the issue, and rarely are both given.
    Many times a reporter will see and then assume something, report it without full facts - I know this is sooo hard to believe with todays journalists!
    So while part of that may be true, there is a lot more to that than what the author wants you to know...what else is new huh?
