Whether it's 90% or 92%, Green is W's guy
Journal Sentinel readers must have been a little perplexed by Monday's seemingly conflicting stories on just how loyal Congressman Mark Green has been to his leader, The W.
A front page story said Green supports Bush 90% of the time, and made it clear that the 10% certainly didn't qualify as any major issues. Whether it's starting a war in Iraq, limiting stem cell research, or running the country into trillion-dollar debt by giving tax cuts to the rich, Mark Green has been a reliable vote.
As a candidate for governor, he doesn't mention Bush. And he doesn't even admit that he's a Congressman, if you watch his commercials or read his campaign material. Chair of the Victory in Iraq Caucus? Who, me?
It is not worth the time to examine the difference between the 90% Bush-Green partnership and the 92% Doyle claimed in a commercial. There is not a dime's worth of difference.
But enough. Let's turn it over to Mike Plaisted for further analysis.
UPDATE: Cory Liebmann on Green's rubber stamp record.
