“Ratcheting up his criticism of John Kerry, President Bush accuses his Democratic rival of voting against American troops in a new television ad that begins airing Tuesday.
“Few votes in Congress are as important as funding our troops at war. Though John Kerry voted in October 2002 for military action in Iraq, he later voted against funding our soldiers,” the ad says.
The 30-second ad labels Kerry “wrong on defense” and claims that the Massachusetts senator did not support bills that would have ensured troops had body armor and earned higher combat pay, and would have given reservists and their families better health care.”
This is nasty, lying stuff here, and it makes people like me angry and looking for ways to fight back. With this stuff going on, why don’t I hear Kerry calling for all Democrats to send him $100 so he can effectively respond? So what if it’s Dean’s idea? 2 million Democrats sending him $100 each is $200 million to fight back!
I suggest as a response: Why is the President dividing us in time of war, when we most need to stick together?
