Bush Ads Critical Of Kerry

Oh no! Unfair! How dare Bush mention Kerry by name.

Kerry can't have it both ways, his record, statements and proposals are the heart of the matter. Only the ABB crowd don't care what, if anything, Kerry stands for.

The National Taxpayer's Union analysis of Kerry's proposals:

NTUF has reviewed Kerry's web site, speeches, and news coverage of his campaign and has tallied the new spending associated with his campaign promises.

As of March 8, 2004, Kerry has proposed ideas that would increase annual federal spending by $276.9 billion a year ($2.769 trillion over ten years).

Won't The Children have to pay his $2.79 TRILLION increase?

As to Kerry's foreign policy gravitas, even the Washington Post is not impressed with Kerry's recent grandstanding on Haiti.

SEN. JOHN F. KERRY of Massachusetts, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, said last week that he would have saved Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide from forced exile. "I would have been prepared to send troops immediately, period," Mr. Kerry said in an interview with the New York Times. Purposeful and decisive, no doubt, and useful as a riposte to Republican portrayals of him as a waffler. But on Feb. 24, when Mr. Aristide's fate still hung in the balance, Mr. Kerry did not sound quite so decisive. He called then for the administration to "do more to preserve the democratic process" and to support a multilateral force including police from Caribbean nations and others. But the most he was ready to advocate in terms of U.S. troops was "a visible show of U.S. military force off the coast."

The Dems spent the past two months geefully savaging Bush, often in the crudest personal terms. This little gem via Lileks.

The "Mother" of All House Parties

The East Bay for Kerry/MoveOn House party on December 7th combined the forces of two grass-roots organizations based in San Francisco East Bay Area. We had 200 guests eating, drinking, and watching the MoveOn Documentary “Uncovered” featuring Joseph Wilson and Rand Beers from the Kerry campaign.

When Teresa Heinz-Kerry arrived, she handed me a pin that read in the center: “Asses of Evil” with “Bush”, “Cheney”, “Rumsfeld” and “Ashcroft” surrounding it.(emphasis added)

You be the judge as to who went negative first. Once again in the spirit of Kerry's gentler, kinder campaign, I offer an unofficial Bush ad:

Proven Patriotism

A hat tip to CavalierX.
