Dean tells reporters that he plans to use footage of Bush prancing around on the aircraft carrier (Wes Clark's choice characterization) in a campaign ad.
"We're going to put up the aircraft carrier ad and show what his real defense is," Dean said in an interview on Thursday. "We're going to use this footage of him landing on the aircraft carrier . . . to show that he's all talk and no action. And the action he's got us into has cost us 400 lives and thousands of wounded people who will never get their limbs back."

[...] Asked whether an aircraft carrier ad would highlight Bush's actions rather than how a Dean candidacy might have handled the war differently, Dean responded, "No, the aircraft carrier is: Here's his priorities, and I'll just tell you what mine are."
Stuff like this is why some over at BFA call him "Mr. Steelies."
