From the Sean Hannity show, via NewsMax:
Dole told Kerry, “I’m not trying to stir anything up, but I don’t believe every one of these people who have talked about what happened are Republican liars.
“And very frankly, Bush is my guy, and I’m tired of people on your side calling him everything from a coward to a traitor to everything – a deserter.”
Dole said he urged Kerry, “Why don’t you call George Bush today and say, ‘Mr. President, let’s stop all this stuff about the National Guard and Vietnam – and let’s talk about the issues.”
Dole said Kerry responded, “I haven’t spent one dime attacking President Bush.”
But the Republican war hero shot back, “You don’t have to. You’ve got all the so-called mainstream media, plus you’ve got MoveOn.org and all these other groups that have spent millions and millions of dollars trying to tarnish Bush’s image.”
“Don’t tell me you don’t know what some of these people are doing,” he told Kerry.How could Kerry possibly have no way of knowing what any of those groups are doing, given this web of connections?
Anyway, there in a nutshell is the Kerry mantra:
“I haven’t spent one dime attacking President Bush.”
Which begs the question, “Why not?”
