So, I was just watching the news, and they were talking about a picture and caption of the White House website. Neil Cavuto (FOX News) was asking if the following caption was a cheap shot at Republicans. Here’s the picture (I’ll discuss it below and ask for your opinion) (see here for the original picture; it’s picture 4: http://www.whitehouse.gov/photogallery/The-story-of-the-economic-recovery-package/):
If you can’t read it, the caption says, “House Republicans surround the President after the meeting. Many of them were seeking his autograph. Every House Republican eventually voted against the bill.”
Now, I have to agree with Neil here. The photo album never talks about all of the Senate Democrats voting for the bill, or all but 7 House Democrats voting for the final version of the bill (originall 11 voted against it). It does talk about Susan Collins (R-ME) voting for it, but that’s understandable, because that was unique and he was meeting with her in order to bring her to his side.
I think this was just a partisan move meant to put the Republicans in a bad light.
So, tell me what you think:
