Not exactly and there are some differences. The "libs" in question are actually asking Kerry's advocates to drop the AWOL attack. Kind of dead
horse. Kerry wins the military service debate hands down, so why bother debating whether or not Bush put forth 52% in his scramble to avoid Vientnam
or 100%? Either way, he didn't go.
I'm ready to drop it. I wish the media would. They wasted the first 6 minutes of MY last Democratic debate asking questions about Bush. That's not
Kerry's fault or any democrats. It's the media, trying to make Kerry look bad now as an attack dog.... just stirring up poop. Again, not Kerry's
And with the intern thing, you can't get more irrefutable proof than the "victim" saying it never happened. Case closed. Not having a press
conference a day releasing bits and pieces of "supporting evidence" while holding back more for the next day, or a witness a day coming out of the
woodwork. That's the mistake Bush has made. He's the one keeping the AWOL issue in the spotlight now. Not Kerry.
As far as handling tricky issues goes, this was text book on both counts. Bush did it the wrong way (as usual). Whereas Kerry proved himself, to be
more Presidential than the President.
