I can’t believe how hard USA Today is continuing to slam Bush on the AWOL issue. this Kit Roane article documents how payroll records and other documents show how Bush failed to report and didn’t fulfill his obligations to TX ANG. You have to notice how the White House is

And now, some local news….AP reports that the NC Election Board has just fined the state GOP $200K for an illegal ad on behalf of gubanatorial candidate Patrick Ballantine.
