Bush vs Kerry

Bush campaign goes after Kerry
McCain predicts 'nastiest campaign we've ever seen

"We're just going to talk about his record," Bush campaign chairman Marc Racicot said on "Fox News Sunday." "He's headed in the wrong direction. He has been for 19 years, and he would lead this country in the wrong direction."

Racicot said Kerry would raise taxes if elected and complained about several of Kerry's Senate votes.

He also said that though Kerry voted in 2002 to support military action as an option against Iraq...

The Bush people are complaining that Kerry voted for their war? The Bush camp was darn good at convincing both Dems and Repubs that Iraq was an imminent threat to the US.
Wait a minute... I didn't buy that WMD thing for one minute.

...he voted against an $87 billion supplemental spending bill late last year.

Racicot said the bill "did everything from provide hazard pay for our troops in Iraq to body armor for our troops in Iraq. ... Now, that's the kind of record that the American people need to know about."

The bill was supposed to rebuild Iraq and the money that the Bush cartel was asking for was just ridiculous and why didn't they think of things like body armor before they went to war in the first place? Do ya suppose Kerry figured out what the rest of us figured out... that the money would go mostly to Bechtel and Halliburton anyway?

On NBC's "Meet the Press," former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Republican, said Kerry "seems to be in honest confusion about what his position is" on the war on terror.

Hmmm Bush wants us to believe that Kerry was once on his side and now he isn't. That might be true. Might not. Well anyway here are the Kerry Camp responses:

Kerry's fellow senator from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy, told CNN's "Late Edition" that Kerry voted in favor of the 2002 resolution on Iraq only after hearing "distortion" and "misrepresentation" from the administration about the threat from Saddam Hussein's regime.

If Kerry had been president, Kennedy said, "we never would have gone to war. We would have mobilized the international community. We would have isolated and contained Saddam Hussein."

Kerry spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter told CNN's "Inside Politics "that Kerry "would have been happy to vote for" the $87 billion in supplemental funding for Iraq "if, A, we could have paid for it, and, B, we had a responsible policy in Iraq."

On taxes, she said, "You hear the same old arguments from Republicans about what Democrats are going to do the fix the economy.

Giuliani was among those issuing that charge Sunday, telling NBC that a vote for Kerry would be "a vote for the most liberal member of the United States Senate."

Ed Rendell, Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, reacted angrily to those accusations on CBS's "Face the Nation."

"How dare they say that John Kerry is liberal when they have run up the biggest deficit in the history of this country?" Rendell said.

Between you and me, I don't think Kerry is a liberal.. and not that being liberal is a bad thing.. but he isn't that liberal. If you thought Clinton was liberal, then maybe Kerry is a bit liberal for you. Kucinich was liberal. Dean was a liberal and Sharpton. Kerry is a Republican compared to Kucinich... so give me a break.

This is a presidential race about coke vs pepsi.

Or if you asked a housewife how her vacation was, she'd say, "different sink"

I say, Same shit, different day.
