...enough said…oops, the John just FLUSHED the credibility…
Note to self:
Three more hate letters to McCain, Lugar and Hagel (who is no longer cute).
Note to White House:
In the next debate (or in ads to follow this debate) there are four things that NEED to be driven home to the American people:
1) Show clip of Kerry praising Bush 41 and his 'Grand Coalition' and what a 'great air war' General McPeak waged –with the fact that John Kerry STILL voted against it. This takes ANY and ALL credibility from Kerry’s ‘Saddam was a threat, but we didn’t have a coalition’ argument –there is no rebuttal to his vote against Gulf War ’91 that has a UN resolution for the use of force and a coalition that has constantly been set up as 'the standard' of a war that passes the 'Global test' on the campaign trail...yet he STILL voted agaisnt it...Play clip of him saying he is the 'anti-war candidate'.
2) Play Kerry saying ‘I voted for the 87 billion before I voted against it’ –then have him saying that he just misspoke…THEN play the clip of him saying that ANY Senator that would vote against the 87 billion is wildly irresponsible…Tag line –“Don’t Play politics with the lives of American troops –He did in 1971 (throws medals) and is still doing it today.
3) Ad letting the American people know that John Kerry intends to USE TAX PAYER MONEY FOR ABORTION (wasn’t that one of the major objections to Hillary-care?). Most Americans are against abortion –use this to your advantage. Statistics : “According to National Election Studies data, collected regularly by the University of Michigan, ban support rose from 56 percent in 1997 to more than 70 percent in 2000. The percentage saying they "favored strongly" a ban grew even more sharply, from 46 percent to 63 percent. Gallup data tell a similar story, with support rising from 57 percent in 1996 to 66 percent in 2000 to 68 percent last month, down slightly from 70 percent in January.” Slate.com
4) Show various Kerry clips from campaign trail and debates using Reagan's name -shown intermixed with all the horrible things he said about Reagan when he was in office -including the fact that he was fighting a 'mythical war on Communism' and voting for a nuclear freeze -much as he will stop nuclear bunker busters (after talking about how we have to get UBL) if he is elected. "The moral darkness in America of the Reagan Presidency" JK
*Congratulations to the Afghan people…the first vote has been cast (by a 19 year old woman!). Thanks to the Bush Administration and the valor of the US military, 10 million Afghans are expected to vote today –half being WOMEN!*
“Ronald Reagan made hard decisions and was steadfast in his principles when it came to confronting the Soviet Union –and was very unpopular in Europe because of these decisions… I will not sign treaties and make decisions that are wrong for America to be popular in the halls of Europe.” George W. Bush 2004
“When [John Kerry] talks about being a fiscal conservative it’s just not credible. He voted to break spending caps over 200 times and now he claims he’s a fiscal conservative…Who is going to keep the economy growing?” George W. Bush 2004
“Freedom is on the march… and free societies will make the world a more peaceful place…the only way to defeat terrorism in the long-run is to spread freedom.” George W. Bush 2004
