Attacks, praise stretch truth at GOP convention

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her Republican supporters held back little Wednesday as they issued dismissive attacks on Barack Obama and flattering praise on her credentials to be vice president. In some cases, the reproach and the praise stretched the truth.

One word of note: George W. Bush is not a conservative at least not in the traditional Old Right sense of the GOP which was led by Robert Taft, Barry Goldwater, etc... He actually has more in common with Nancy Pelosi and Ted Kennedy. The GOP has a split personality quite frankly.
