Need Help! Re: Kerry's missed intelligence meetings
Please help me provide some context for the latest attack on Kerry saying that he has missed 76% of his Senate intelligene meetings, I know this is only the public meetings but I need as much info as I can get to debunk this theory to someone at work. Thanks!

2. Over 300 "meetings" - only staff attend most per GOP Chair -
selection by GOP was 38 "missed" out of 48 selected -

but GOP will not release their own attendence - or indeed average attendance

and it is known that of the 48 meetings selected "big name GOP" missed more than Kerry.

Bottom line is we can not even verify that they are truth telling about the 38 of 48 as they will not release actual attendence.

A classic smear where GOP will not let truth be known.

3. Compare
Cheney; sponsored 2 bills passed into law.

Frist; sponsored ZERO bills passed into law.

Kerry; sponsored 58 bills passed into law.

Someone was missing meetings alright but it wasn't Kerry.
