Shaking hands after ripping on each others policies.
Now that we have finished our third, and final,
Presidential Debate where each politician offered his final opinion on how
things should be run, it is time to see what the major exaggerations and,
at times, lies were heard from each candidate.
Time to do a Fact Check
The good people over at Associated Press [AP] have, as they have for every
debate, posted a list of grievances based on exaggerations or false statements
from both Kerry and Bush. An example of some 'mistakes' include:
Kerry states that he has a plan to cover all Americans with a health insurance,
even though he does not have a plan to cover those who are currently uninsured.
Kerry states that Bush has cut Pell grants for students. He later altered this accusation after
it was proven that one million more students are getting aid then when Bush first took office.
Kerry states Bush has not met with the Black Congressional Caucus. Bush
first met with the Black Congressional Caucus within two weeks of becoming
Bush said the bill that created the Homeland Security Department was one
of his steps to make the country safer. However, Bush had to be converted
to this cause as he was first against it.
