Kline has the worst voting record in the state on environment, education, disabled veterans and working family issues. At a recent event Coleen Rowley referred to Kline’s terrible voting record on issues that she specifically selected for their nonpartisan nature.
"The 2nd District is Republican-leaning, But these issues are all things that any person should find important and Kline has done nothing to support them."The Minnesota Daily has a Kline spokesman saying Rowley campaign is smearing them by trying to address Kline's voting history. Imagine that, using the facts of Kline's voting record is 'smearing' Kline's record!
“Marcus Esmay, spokesman for the Kline campaign, described Rowley's campaign as a "smear" against Kline's record”
Definition of the word:
- Smear- to smirch, spot, stain, slander or defame,
- Slander- a false and malicious statement or report about someone.
Kline is trying to dodge the real issues by claiming that attacking his voting record is the same as attacking his military record. Kline was a good soldier who can follows orders. However, a good soldier who votes 96% of the time with Bu$hCo does not make a good Congressman for Minnesota as his voting record shows.
The crybaby defense is a sad and pathetic attempt to avoid real debate with substance. It’s no mistake that Kline wants to divert the discussion back to being a good soldier given his vote record but unfortunately he’s not running for the office of soldier. It’s time for this old soldier to fade away.
