NE-02: VIDEO of Lee Terry Not Telling the Truth About His Record on Spending

Bumped from the diaries. Tom White is one of the Congressional candidates on our Going on Offense Act Blue page; please welcome him to MyDD. - Nathan

On two separate occasions recently – the Tom Becka Program on KFAB and a taxpayer-funded telephone town hall – Rep. Lee Terry misled voters about his record on deficits and spending. Watch the video:

By spreading misinformation on the radio and on a taxpayer-funded phone call, Lee Terry is trying to hide from his record of voting for the Wall Street bailout and for budgets that nearly doubled the national debt and added trillions to the deficit. Desperate to hide from his record, Congressman Terry is using a strategy cynical even by Washington standards: misleading taxpayers while billing them for the call. Congressman Terry has no credibility when it comes to spending nor the deficit.

Terry is facing the toughest challenge of his career from Democratic State Senator Tom White, who was on the first round of Red-to-Blue candidates.

truth vs lies

What's really infuriating about progressives is that they think truth and the facts influence the public/voters.  The public believes whatever they are told, and the more ridiculous, it seems they believe it even more.  Progressives need to organize and develop superior lies/narrative to the republicans.  Only then will they be on the offensive and more likely to win elections.

RE: truth vs lies

We won't deserve to win if we do it by lying. You're right, just presenting the facts isn't enough. Narrative and messaging matter. Style is huge - but none of that requires adapting the immorality of Republicans.
