Halter Takes High Road; Holt Bloody Road, Arkansas Times Says
(See definition of psychological projection below)
"Throughout our meal, Halter sticks to the issues, refusing the opportunity to turn on Jim Holt even when I damn near force a knife into his hand. In a race in which his opponent [Holt] has been willing to go for the quick and bloody hit, Halter repeatedly takes the high road," reports the liberal Arkansas Times on their interviews with Halter and Holt, Oct 26, 06.
Following are just a few of the 30 similar nasty terms pulled out of Halter press releases. You can find all of the terms and more at the link at the end of this article. "Jim Holt Can't Be Trusted, King Of The Whoppers, Worst Legislator In Arkansas’s History, Taxpayers Have Wasted Their Money On Jim Holt, Caught Lying,Six Whoppers From Jim Holt, Manufactured And Distorted Sleaze, Desperate Campaign , Hypocritical Conviction, Right Wing Ideology, Puts Person Ideology Above Progress, Inflammatory Rhetoric, His Failed Used Car Salesman Experience, Jim Holt Sure Knows How To Flip-Flop, But For Most Of His Life He's Earned A Living From A Taxpayer-Funded Salary." (In this last one Halter is referring to Holt's 9 years in military service as NSA watch officer during the cold war under 3 Presidents.)
I am sure every mom or wife or family member of anyone serving in Iraq or who has been killed in service would really appreciate this strange concept of Halter's - that military service is sponging off the government.
Psychological projection (or projection bias) is a defense mechanism in which one attributes ("projects") to others, one’s own unacceptable or unwanted thoughts or/and emotions. Projection reduces anxiety by allowing the expression of the unwanted subconscious impulses/desires without letting the ego recognize them. What Other Have Said About Holt
(Don't miss the last one by liberal John Brummett)
Laura Kellems with Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported on Senator Holt's military records after reporters had investigated them for hours just to prove Holt was honest. "The reporters did find, however, that on evaluations, supervisors said Holt "exhibits high morals" and is 'totally trustworthy and honest. ' They also reported he held a "top secret" clearance under three presidents. Article September 12, 04. by Kellams
"Sen. Paul Miller, D-Melbourne, who doesn’t count Holt as an extremist, said Holt votes his conscience.' You have to give him credit for that. Against all odds he will stick with what he believes in,' Miller said. Sen. Jimmy Jeffress, D-Crossett, called Holt “a good man and a well-principled man and a man of good morals.'" Article on Holt in Democrat Gazette by Wickline July 2, 06 [Senator Miller and Jeffress are Democrats; Holt is Republican]
Jimmy Cunningham, superintendent and past president of the Arkansas Rural Education Association, said, …"He [Holt] never wavered and we never had to lobby him because we knew where he stood. Everyone who didn't know already, learned that if Senator Holt tells you something, you can count on him to keep his word." [Cunningham is a Democrat; Holt is a Republican]
Excerpts from liberal John Brummett article. "ME" is John Brummett)
Holt: You claim to want politicians to tell the truth. You have to admit, I tell the truth. You don't really think Halter is against gay foster parents, do you?
Me: I hope not, but I don't know. It's like I said about Beebe and Hutchinson the other day. With Halter, you get half a chance because he's taken both sides. With you, you have no chance because you've taken the wrong side.
Holt: So, you favor the guy who won't give you a straight answer?
Me: In the current Arkansas political climate, that's the best I can hope for.For rest of article and documentation of facts above (the above are just excerpts) see this link
