Wash. Times Covers Oct. 17 Candidate Forum

Cheney criticizes Moran's behavior - The Washington Times: Metropolitan - October 18, 2004:

Kudos to the WA Times for giving coverage to the candidates' positions on the issues. (Note: Jim Hurysz was not invited to participate, but was present distributing information before hand.) Some excerpts:

During the debate, Mr. Moran criticized the Bush administration and said the Bush tax cuts have been the major contributor to the deficit.
Mrs. Cheney, who is not related to Vice President Dick Cheney, said Congress could save $20 billion by eliminating 2,000 pork-barrel projects.
Mrs. Cheney said she only supports adult stem-cell research.
"Facts have shown that adult stem cells are proven to be the most beneficial," she said.
Mr. Moran said he opposes the position held by some churches who say stem-cell research is akin to abortion and noted that embryonic stem-cell research could cure diseases.
"It verges on criminal to shorten lives for politically inspired acquiescence to religious extremism," he said.


Mrs. Cheney said working toward medical-malpractice reform will help lower the costs of prescription drugs.


When asked what differs between them and the presidential candidate they support, Mrs. Cheney criticized President Bush for supporting a constitutional amendment banning same-sex "marriage."
"I don't support discrimination," she said. "That was a mistake the president made."


Given the opportunity to defend himself for some of his past remarks, the incumbent instead complained that "these personal attacks" were a distraction. As usual, he refused to take responsibility for his actions that prompted the so-called "attacks."

Mr. Moran, 59, has been criticized for voting in favor of legislation that helped MBNA Corp., a credit-card company that gave him an unusually low interest rate for a nearly $450,000 loan in 1998. He also faced scrutiny for comments he made about the Jewish community and the war in Iraq last year.
When asked yesterday how he can be an effective legislator when he is forced to repeatedly deflect criticism, Mr. Moran responded: 'I've tried to stay on the issues that I feel matter.'
