“Bush: Kerry Brags About Abandoning Troops
Bush Tours Midwestern States, Says Kerry Abandoned Support for Troops and Then Bragged About It
Courting conservative voters in Michigan’s rural Upper Peninsula, President Bush said Tuesday that rival John Kerry abandoned support for U.S. troops in Iraq and then bragged about it.
“Leaders need to stand up with our military,” Bush told a cheering crowd, kicking off a two-day tour of three crucial states that he lost in 2000 to Democratic Vice President Al Gore.
Kerry said Monday that he and running mate John Edwards were proud of the fact that they opposed the $87 billion aid package for Afghanistan and Iraq “when we knew the policy had to be changed.” Kerry said the Bush administration should have gotten other allies to help with the war in Iraq.
“He is entitled to his view,” Bush said, adding that Kerry should not have gone on to “brag about it.”
How long IS Kerry going to let Bush get away with this? It is time for Kerry to SMACK THIS DOWN. It is time for Kerry to look American in the face and say that Bush is LYING, and that THIS is just too important to Kerry to continue to let Bush get away with it.
Letting Bush go on saying things like this really makes Kerry look like a wimp. It is working. There really is no other way to deal with this than to smack it down.
I mean, being accused of bragging about abandoning the troops DOES make Kerry angry, doesn’t it? But if I don’t SEE Kerry getting really angy about this, well, … maybe it DOESN’T make him angry!
So, Sen. Kerry, what are you going to DO about this? Are you a person who stands up to bullies? That’s what the country needs.
