Bush Campaign Demands Apology
"...Earlier Wednesday in Chicago, Kerry toughened his comments about his GOP critics after a supporter urged him to take on Bush. ''Let me tell you, we've just begun to fight,'' Kerry said. ''We're going to keep pounding. These guys are the most crooked, you know, lying group I've ever seen. It's scary.''
Bush-Cheney campaign chairman Marc Racicot called on Kerry to apologize.
''Senator Kerry's statement today in Illinois was unbecoming of a candidate for the presidency of the United States of America, and tonight we call on Senator Kerry to apologize to the American people for this negative attack,''
Racicot said in a statement...."
One look, on any given day, at Dick Cheney's Halliburton's price gouging over no bid government contracts in Iraq affirms the lies and crookedness that permeate the Bush administration.
Bush lied about Iraq having WMD's so he could drag us into war. That was crooked.
He also lied about the environment, education funding, AIDS funding, affordable healthcare for the elderly, fixing rampant unemployment, and his military record.
Lies. Lies. Lies.
Bush depleted the budget surplus to reward his wealthy buddies with two huge tax cuts. That was crooked.
Bush is willing to trade discriminatory constitutional amendments for campaign contributions and votes. That's shamefully crooked.
Bush said he was a compassionate conservative when he ran for office in 2000.
That was a lie. He's a right-wing extremist of the worst kind.
Kerry should not apologize for calling the Bush crowd crooked liars. He called it as he saw it, and he saw it absolutely right.
The GOP will be whining and bitching like hell during this election because they cannot dictate the terms of Kerry's campaign ads. Neither can they prohibit independent groups like MoveOn* from running anti Bush ads, independent of Kerry's campaign.
The truth will come out, and the Bush clan obviously will have great trouble accepting the public getting to hear the ugly truth about them.
Having run America like a banana republic dictatorship for the last four years, the Bush regime is accustomed to using spin doctoring, spy tactics, sidestepping, force and threats to get their way, often under the convenient guise of "national security."
I'm delighted to see Kerry has hit the ground running with straight talk about the crooked Bush administration.
This is no time to run a polite, punch pulling Democratic pussy cat against the low-down, shameless, criminal Bush scoundrels.
Kerry needs to call it as he sees it and keep the pressure on Bush.
Bush and his thugs ARE the most crooked liars in modern American political history.
This is no time for using Queensbury Rules and extending civil, political courtesies the Democrats are so famous for.
To get us out of the fucked-up messes Bush has made in his one-trick-pony term, we need a leader like Kerry who isn't afraid to take on Bush and his criminal associates.
If Kerry can face down these GOP terrorists, Arab terrorists will be cake in comparison.
Kerry has come out with the gloves off and fire in his belly.
Please note how swiftly his Democratic primary opponents have rallied to support his candidacy, with funds, personal appearances and lists of their supporters.
For now, we need to forget about dealing with the horrible mess our nation is in domestically and internationally.
First we need a hero to save us from Bush and his criminal associates.
I think Kerry has so far shown great promise in accomplishing that.
Kerry should apologize to Bush?
The truth needs no apology.
If they feel libeled or slandered, let them try to sue Kerry.
When damaging allegations are based on fact, it's neither slander nor libel, and those Bush criminals know that. They need to put up or shut up, and stop whining like spoiled babies.
*You know an incumbent is bad when indie groups pay for ads against him. Has this ever been done before? I don't believe it has.
