Is Kerry taking advantage of the rising anti-Bush feeling brought on by the Moore movie, and fueled by brainless entertainers looking for the spotlight?
The Bush video's opening white-on-black graphic says, "The Faces of John Kerry's Democratic Party. The Coalition of the Wild-eyed." Next comes a parade of angry speakers: Al Gore, Hitler, Howard Dean, Michael Moore, Dick Gephardt, Hitler, Gore, and Kerry.
Kerry campaign spokesman Phil Singer said in a statement issued yesterday, "The fact that George Bush thinks its appropriate to use images of Adolf Hitler in his campaign raises serious questions about his fitness to spend another four years in the White House."
The Anti-Defamation League also expressed disappointment with the Bush campaign's use of the Nazi images
A new campaign ad released by the Bush reelection campaign on its web site on Thursday which features political attacks comparing the president to Adolf Hitler made by supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John F. Kerry has been denounced by the Kerry campaign as "disgusting," "bizarre," and "outrageous."
"It is a web-video that we sent to our supporters so they can see examples of the kind of hateful and vitriolic rhetoric that we have seen from John Kerry's surrogates," said Bush campaign spokesman Scott Stanzel.

They take a video that some random person used to compare Hitler and Bush. And then!...they use it in their campaign to compare Kerry to Hitler. You tell me who's in the wrong. Don't talk to me about why Republicans are better than Democrats or vice-versa because I don't care.

Let me see if I get this straight Vallhall
Step 1. Post an ad on your site claiming Bush is Hitler
Step 2. Wait for Bush to respond with ad saying "look at these people, for God's sake they're comparing me to Hitler"
Step 3. Moan and wail that Bush is "mudslinging"

His campain is breeding a hatred of our president.
I do not beleive this for an instant. John Kerry has done no such thing,... Bush damaged his own image and caused hisself to be hated by the people of the USA and hated by other countries.
His campaign is using the most vile and base accusations and insinuations to defame the president our our nation.
John Kerry has been doing a great job in his campaigning , Kerry reminds people of the " Bush atrocities", which are factual ,truthful and has not lowered hisself down to Bush's level of false mud-slinging.
George W Bush DEFAMED hisself with no one elses help.
I do not think BUsh is the greatest pres ever nor do I think he is the worst but he has held his office with dignity and upheld a public image of the pres of the USA that can be respected.
I think Bush is the worst , Bush & Co have dishonored the presidential office, the White House, the Gov't and the Citizens of the United States, Bush and His thugs have ruined our Nation's creditbility and respect. Dignity and respected Bush has held his office ?????? WHEN???? The man has showed smuggness and stupidity, why shouldn't he,.... after all it was the Supreme Court that placed him into the presidential office, NOT the Citizens of the United States !!!
I believe there is lots of room for critisism without resorting to lies and deciet and rank insults.
OH MY GOD !!!!! The only thing John Kerry has said that criticizes George Bush & Co, has been Truths about Bush and Cheney !!!
George W Bush & Co are the ones that has been "SLINGING LIES, DECEITS, AND RANK INSULTS", they've done nothing but SLING-MUD at the Democrats because they Know they "cannot" win in a debate of any kind because they have screwed-everything-up, with their lies since taken office, but their lies are catching up with them really fast and all they can do is dig the hole deeper.

I think the major point is that we no longer have election campaigns centered on issues, platforms and planks...but mud-slinging.
