The Corner


The new GW Bush ad is up at I like it, but I hope it’s a series because I don’t think this one alone hits hard enough. I would cut another using the quote from the Times magazine and say something like this:

“John Kerry had a twenty year record of being soft on defense and strong on talk [show headlines of votes, factoids etc]. He fought Ronald Reagan when Ronald Reagan was fighting for America and freedom. Kerry voted to cut funding for the military and intelligence.

When America was attacked on September 11th, Democrats and Republicans said everything changed. We had to be strong. Go on offense. Protect America.

But not John Kerry.

He said just this month that September 11th didn’t change his thinking about foreign policy at all.

Weak and wrong on America’s security before September 11. Weak and wrong now.”
