Mr. Ed - Compulsive or Habitual?

A little help here.

I am seriously trying to decide if "Mr. Ed" Bryant (one of the three GOP U.S. Senate candidates running) is a "compulsive" or "habitual" liar.

According to dictionary.com, someone who is "habitual" is defined as one who practices or acts "in some manner by force of custom, habit or addiction," while it defines someone who is "compulsive" as "a person with behavior patterns governed by a compulsion."

Here's why I ask.
Seems Mr. Ed has once again attacked Harold Ford Jr. (the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate) for being a tax and spend liberal. He did so by using his chief blog flackie at Blogging for Bryant to make the charge.
I realize that being a GOP candidate for any job (from dogcatcher to President) requires one to follow the standard attack formula against one's Democratic opponent by charging that if they are not a Republican they must be a tax and spend liberal.
Problem in this instance is that Ford is actually (let the record show) more of a fiscal conservative that Mr. Ed.

Here are some facts to refute Mr. Ed's charges:
- Ford have never (never ever as in never, ever, ever) voted for a budget that was not balanced.
- Ford has routinely called on a constitutional amendment that would mandate that our federal budget be balanced.
- Ford has been opposed to efforts to increase the debt limit by nearly $2.6 trillion.
There is more, but you get the picture.

Now, let's look at Mr. Ed's voting record while he served in Congress:
- Mr. Ed voted in favor (as in "I like it, I love it, I want some more of it") of $1.1 trillion in federal debt limit increases.
- when Mr. Ed served federal spending increased 43 percent and the national debt grew by $1.5 trillion (just three letters short of a gazillion), or what amounted to $5,8000 in extra federal debt for every Tennessean.
There is more here too, but again, you get the picture.

So all that to say this.

Mr. Ed should be ashamed of himself. Tennesseans are sick and tired of people who run for office time and again (yep, for those of you new to Tennessee politics - Mr. Ed has run and lost in previous efforts to be a U.S. Senator) and lie about their opponent's records.

Tennesseans expect more, and we will not settle for less.

Mr. Ed, please seek the help of a therapist and resolve your "compulsive" or "habitual" lying issues soon.

Stuff like this just shows how the Republican Party has become a caricature of itself. We have Rubber Stamp Republicans in Washington who let Bush do whatever he wants, and at home we have two-dimensional Republi-bots; wind 'em up and watch them spout pre-corded messages: "tax-and-spend liberal! tax-and-spend liberal!," "he's a flip-flopper, he's a flip-flopper," "soft on terra! soft on terra!" and my all-time favorite: "to the left of Ted! to the left of Ted!"

Cripes, they even all look alike! White male, dark hair plastered to the head, thin lips, small eyes, dark suit. Somewhere deep in Kansas is a factory where they're churning out these Republi-bots. Spare us!

I am afraid that the GOP clone factory of which you speak may actually be located closer to home than Kansas. Look no further than to the East, West and possibly to the South of where you stand right now in our state.

Bryant, Hilleary and Corker are following the lead of their national and state party heads by lying about Ford's record because they are so very threatened by the response he's getting from Tennesseans.

Harold Ford Jr. is very much his own man who knows how to get things done. He can work circles around the three of the GOP candidates put together, and he is committed to taking us in a new direction instead of the old, tired stuff in which the Republicans have us wallowing and which Van/Bob/Ed represent.
