Was There Ever Any Doubt?
Benjamin L. Ginsberg resigned on Wednesday as national counsel for President Bush's reelection campaign over his ties to a veterans' group that has criticized the Vietnam War record of Senator John Kerry.
Does anyone still think the Bush campaign had nothing to do with the Swift Boat Liars?
One needn't bother to connect the dots. There are no dots, there are straight lines to follow.
The New York Times spells it out (sorry, I couldn't hyperlink this):
What does all this mean?
It means that the Bush campaign has used the Swift Boat Liars to do some of their dirty work for them. That's against the law.
My politically ignorant friend Barcodie insisted weeks ago this story had legs.
He maintained that the lies told by the Swift Bush Veterans would be proven true and that their allegations would portray John Kerry as a fraudulent war hero.
Oh, this story has legs, all right.
First, the Swift Bloat Veterans' allegations have been thoroughly discredited.
Now there is ample evidence that the Bush campaign has broken the law by allowing their counsel to advise this outside group on their plans to dirty up Kerry's war record.
From the New York Times:
"Ginsberg's work for the veterans group was just the latest Republican tie to emerge, and the most politically significant. Records show that the veterans received most of their initial financing from prominent Texas Republicans close to the Bush family and to Karl Rove, the president's chief political strategist. They have received strategic advice from consultants who have worked with national Republican groups."
Bush has no shame, no decency and no honor.
He wants to win at any cost so he and his crooked cronies can have four more years to loot and pillage the country...and the world.
The Democrats want Attorney General John Ashcroft to open a criminal investigation into links between Bush and the Swift Boat Liars.
Does anyone here think Ashcroft would be capable of administering justice fairly in this case?
Please. Ashcroft and Bush are Jesus buddies. A devout Pentecostal, Ashcroft is so whacked he thinks house cats are the embodiment of Satan.
This wingnut is the go-to guy for non-partisan justice?
