Here is an example of the "low-information" voter that Martin Bensky (Letters, Aug. 23) accused Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives of inventing as a code for minority voters. In 2006 and 2007, four U.S. senators visited Syria for information gathering to lead up to open discussion with President Assad. All came back with glowing respect for him and pronounced him to be a reformist.
After their visit, they went on the offensive, accusing then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice of not having a coherent position on Syria and its leader, and one senator called for the impeachment of President Bush.
These fine left-wing senators were Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and of course, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Joe "plugs" Biden.
Unfortunately for the liberals and Mr. Bensky, simple research can produce statements and opinions that do not disappear from existence!
Never miss a local story.
That Mr. Bensky is just one of many facts and statements that "low-information" voters have not had presented to them.
