Tries to silence mounting evidence of American progress overseas
(Concord) Republican Grant Bosse today chastised Congressman Paul Hodes for introducing a bill to prevent the Department of Defense from communicating the ongoing progress in the global war against Islamic Fascism. Hodes has introduced an amendment to the 2009 Defense Authorization Act that would stifle the ability of military leaders to communicate military success to the American people, and could even threaten efforts of military recruiters nationwide.
“Paul Hodes has bought into the liberal fantasy that any news of American progress is propaganda, and the retreat-and-defeat agenda of the New York Times is to be taken as truth,” said Bosse. “This latest attack on the American military shows just how extreme Hodes has become.”
While Hodes would limit the ability of the Department of Defense to communicate its message to the public, he has repeatedly abused taxpayer dollars to aid his re-election campaign. Hodes has habitually used the Congressional “franking privilege” to mail politically-targeted literature to New Hampshire voters. He is even using the Congressional Record for political purposes.
“Paul Hodes said the Surge was ‘too little, too late,’ and didn’t even bother listening to the testimony of General David Petraeus,” Bosse continued. “Now he wants to prevent the American public from hearing the news the New York Times does not see fit to print, while reserving his own ability to print propaganda at taxpayer expense.”
Bosse’s campaign is centered on winning the war against Islamic Fascism, freeing the economy from taxes, mandates and over regulation, and securing our borders. For more information on Bosse’s campaign, go to www.Bosse2008.com.
