Pete Borden has made a serious accusation in a nearby blog. He suggests I have lied in three of my columns published by the MDJ in recent weeks. However, Mr. Borden fails to back up his accusation with any specific examples.
The three columns in question all present Mitt Romney as what he is, a shape shifting prevaricator who lacks the conviction and guts to take a stand on any important public issue (more on that Friday). I back up my commentary with Romney's own statements and/or actions, something Mr. Borden doesn't like.
I was a journalist long before I entered public relations. I am also an author of historical fiction. I know how important research is, so I spend an inordinate amount of time on my MDJ columns making sure everything I write is supported by the truth.
For Mr. Borden to irresponsibly suggest I "made stuff up" is highly insulting and he's dead wrong. He might not like the facts, but they are what they are, Mr. Borden, whether you agree with them or not, whether you respect me or not.
So I challenge you here, Mr. Borden, to be very specific and present to MDJ readers ANY lie in any of the three columns I wrote or do the decent thing and publicly withdraw your accusation.
"Give 'em Hell" Harry Truman once famously said, "I never gave anyone hell. I just told them the truth and they thought it was hell."
Welcome to hell, Mr. Borden.
