(Depending on whose account you believe, Bush promised to appoint only anti-abortion-rights judges to the Supreme Court, or he stuck to his campaign "strict constructionist" phrase. Or he took a tough stance against gays and lesbians, or maybe he didn't).

The media and center-left activist groups urged the group and Bush's presidential campaign to release the tape of his remarks. The CNP, citing its bylaws that restrict access to speeches, declined. So did the Bush campaign, citing the CNP.

1. Wow, that's pretty strong for ABC. And good: CNP is scary and evil.
Damn right the speech should be released. Already I'm pleased that they're even mentioning this shady organization on national news.

2. They wrote this in 2002. They should reprise it now for the hypocrisy
of the Bush-Cheney campaign's demand for Kerry to release the video of the NY fundraiser.

5. That he promised the CNP to fulfill their far right agenda.
He just doesn't want the rest of the country to know that he is every bit the far right wingnut as the CNPers.
