ELECTION: Rossi needs to get real

I am getting a little tired of Dino Rossi’s allegations about Sen. Patty Murray’s “tax-and-spend” record. Does he think the American voters are so short-memoried that they don’t recall the beginnings of Murray’s time in Congress? You know, when she was voting with the Clinton administration, building a great budget surplus and leading the country to prosperity?

Perhaps he is talking about the eight years of the Bush administration, when this county developed a trillion dollar deficit (not counting the military, which was excluded) and the huge recession we currently enjoy.

Now, when she is trying to help us out of this quagmire that Bush got us into, she is a “tax-and-spend” fiend. Be real and support the only voice in this campaign who is working for America.
