Position Papers
I support our troops and remaining in Iraq to train the Iraqis
The Enquirer distorted my position by editing out crucial statements. I support withdrawal as soon as possible but only after the Iraqis can defend themselves, which is essentially the President's stated goal as well. Instead of saying "I will support the President" I give details of my views based upon my experience. These misquotes prove why you cannot be thoughtful and reflective in answering a reporter's questions.
Scioto County Forum
I promise to be forthright and honest.
Social Security benefits must be protected in any reform package
I want to know the details of any reform of social security before I will commit to support. Privitization if used at all must be done gradually to ensure no loss of benefits to those who paid in for a lifetime. Inflation must be avoided.
