Does money and praise make an endorsement?

Last week the National Rifle Association officially announced they were not endorsing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D – NV).

They also went out of their way to make it clear they were not endorsing Reid’s opponent, Republican Sharon Angle — who filled out the National Association for Gun Rights Federal Candidate Survey 100% pro-gun.  A typical Washington non-statement, statement.

The NRA’s “non-endorsement” statement brings up a number of important questions.

Does giving a candidate money not constitute a more-than-tacit endorsement? The NRA’s Federal PAC gave Harry Reid $4,950 this year, for his 2010 reelection campagin.

Does speaking glowingly of a candidate or politician during an election year not constitute an endorsement? In the June 2010 edition (page 16-18) of the NRA’s magazine, the American Rifleman, they featured an article highlighting the work Harry Reid has done with the NRA.

I firmly believe that actions speak louder than press releases.

In that spirit, our cartoonist outlined just what that the NRA’s “non-endorsement” really means.

Please feel to forward this cartoon to all of your gun owning friends and relatives.

For liberty,

    The NRA can kiss my Texas Gun Owning, and USING ass… :evil:

    It would certainly appear that the NRA has adopted the ethos of politics and backed away from sticking to principle. Sucking up to any extent to a lying weasel like Harry Reid is unacceptable to me.
