Okay, so that being the case, please show us evidence as to the

-- helping the environment

-- feeding the poor

-- not giving money to the rich.

If you say it's unfair to portray them in the former light, then the latter
light must be true, yes?  So please, fire away, show us the information to back
this up.

Because there's spin and there's spin, and cutting money to, say, an agency
that feeds people is not a matter of spin, it's x dollars this year vs. y
dollars last year.  Time after time, Bush has *said* he's for one
"compassionate" cause after another, but when it came time to allocate money or
support, was nowhere to be found...he applauds the theory but dismantles them
behind the scenes by starving them.

So please, you've made the assertion that republicans are being unfairly
tainted with these former allegations, so show me where the latter are true.
