Attack Ads

Tuesday, August 24th, 2004 · 2 Comments

ABCNews.com: “Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry picked New York City, host to next week’s Republican National Convention, to urge the GOP to abandon negative attacks and debate solutions to problems facing voters.”

Now there’s a novel concept.

The fact that Bush and Co. (along with the media) have spent so much time focusing on this ridiculous issue questioning Kerry’s wartime record is evidence that it’s the most serious thing challenging the self-proclaimed “wartime president.” I think it may be a step in the right direction that Bush called for the independent ads to stop. But I just don’t trust the guy. Something tells me he’s more concerned about the force that is MoveOn.org than he is about getting the Swift Boat group to stop its campaign.

Don’t miss Kerry tonight on the Daily Show…

    Did you see the story in the NYTimes Travel section by our very own Vassar alum Zach, winner of The Amazing Race! It is priceless.

    I’ve blogged it here.

    I’ve posted a response at my blog http://alanmanning.blogspot.com/ and after all the thought and energy that went into it, it doesn’t seem to appear, oh well.

    Generally, I made two points… contact me if you want more detail on them.

    1. Since John Kerry has made his service in Viatnam (which amounted to only 4 mos.) the SOLE focus of his campaign, his ability to deal with that service honestly is a SERIOUS issue.

    2. Bush has spent ZERO time focusing on this issue. Bush states only that Kerry served “honorably,” and to suggest that Bush has made this a focus is either a mistake, or dishonest.

    Sorry for the harsh words man, hope you don’t delete this one… Thanks :) -Alan
