Those Wascally Wepubwicans!

I don't know that I would elevate this to "a smoking gun."

The then-congressman, who was running for an open seat in the U.S. Senate, echoed arguments made by conservatives.

"I'm not for a government-sponsored solution," Udall said. "I'm for enhancing and improving the employer-based system that we have."

In a debate overshadowed by other issues -- rising energy prices and the war on terror -- Udall's answer that July barely created a ripple. But in the context of Sen. Udall's vote for the Affordable Care Act in 2010 and his tough re-election bid against Republican Congressman Cory Gardner in November, the statement takes on new meaning.

Udall's vote for the health care law has provided fodder for a number of campaign attack ads.


All the same, you have to love the headline and lead: instead of "Udall Lied!" the Denver Post has to say "Mean Old Republicans make issue out of Udall untruths!"
