Bush Goes For The Scoop Jackson Vote

“During the last 20 years, in key moments of challenge and decision for America, Senator Kerry has chosen the position of weakness and inaction. With that record, he stands in opposition not just to me, but to the great tradition of the Democratic Party. The party of Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and John Kennedy is rightly remembered for confidence and resolve in times of war and in hours of crisis. Senator Kerry has turned his back on ‘pay any price’ and ‘bear any burden.’ And he has replaced those commitments with ‘wait and see,’ and ‘cut and run.’”
