George Stephanopolous gets schooled on US history
The despicable media has made much of Michele Bachmann's supposed mistake when she said that the founding fathers had fought against slavery. Liberal toady George Stephanopolous challenged her history saying, "Now with respect Congresswoman, that's just not true."
As it turns out George, she is precisely correct. Over at American Spectator there's an article by Jeffrey Lord highlighting Mark Levin's evisceration of George S. where he shows published writings by no less than Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton in which they argued for the end of slavery.
In addition, the 3/5th's compromise which we've gone over here at TRR before, was included in the original Constitutional convention. It's specific purpose was to diminish the influence of slave states in the convention.
I wonder if George will offer the on-air apology that Michele Bachmann deserves? I won't be holding my breath.
