Let's play fair!
I don't see anyone from the Kerry camp having a problem with Swifties being a 527. It's the lies and Bush coordination. And all they asked Bush to
do was denouce them specifically, rather than this BS crybaby (sniff, sniff) "I denounce all 527's" stuff. Just like he sidestepped charges of his
attacks on McCain in 2000. Adding "McCain's allegations are wild eyed" impying he can't take the heat (like they try to say about Kerry now).
Fair you say?
The soft money is legal. The truth is protected. Heck, even the Swifties can keep making a mockery of themselves and this election
til the end as far as I care.
The question is...will Bush keep saying he honors Kerry's service while refusing to denounce the claims
of the Swifties. Nobody is asking Bush
to pull the Swifties. At least they weren't before the connections were revealed. That's another MAJOR Bush problem surfacing from his continued
allowance for Swiftie controversy.
"I denounce what I do!"
Welcome to the club you crazy cowboy.
It is becoming increasingly evident that the longer the Swifites stay in the spotlight the more they backfire on Bush. The vet burp in Kerry poll
damage has been done. No more to lose. Thus we have a tie and polls show nearly everyone in America have seen the ads already (on the complicit
media). So more Swiftie talk accomplishes nothing but making undecideds madder.
And I'd LOVE the Swiftiversy to continue all next week during the RNC love fest... Ask yourself who does Bush want in the news during the convention?
Him or Swifties. Hard to say...possibly Swifties since we know bush can't win on his
Still Bush's move. He's either in charge or clueless as to the activities of his own staff and closest senior advisor. And if he keeps up the "ban
all 527's" stuff then we FINALLY get to have the debate MoveOn.org wants.
Don't you think they want their ads rerun ad infinitum on Fox news and CNN and talked about on the net and papers like the Swifties get attention and
analysis? How embarrassing would that be? Listing the truth
about the economy and other MoveOn.org charges one after the other on the news all
next week, while the Swifties still get sunk as liars on a daily basis. The problem is the truth
isn't controversial, so they get no
replay...unless Bush forces the issue.
No more "I denounce all 527's" Mr. Bush. Tell us your stand on Swift Vets AND
which MoveOn.org ads distort your character and/or record.
Please let's discuss MoveOn.org. List the current "lies" for us. Anyone?
That would be the "fair" playing field some seek right? Not this "ban all speech" Bush is trying to pull.
