Tactics and Substance in the 2004 Elections GoogleNews: Howard Dean

There aren't words enough to express my contempt for the Democrats associated with this latest attack ad on Howard Dean. Not only is it utterly false, it implies that Dubya has some competence when it comes to foreign policy!

What the hell is wrong with Democrats and where is the party on this? The DNC needs to take a strong stand against this divisive, damaging (to the country), deceitful demagoguing. Kerry and Gephardt should immediately disavow this crap, and the ad should be pulled.

In the meantime, donate to Howard Dean. Party hacks are seeking to ensure that he can't compete with Bush next year just so they can run around saying "we were right, look at us, we were right." They care not one whit for their country, but only about their own personal perks and power. We must put a stop to this nonsense immediately.

Contribute now.

"...just cannot compete with George Bush on foreign policy.

This was the line that rankled me. When we find out in February whose campaigns were behind this ad, I pledge *right now* that I won't campaign for that person if he becomes the nominee.

Compete with George Bush on Foreign Policy?
What a laugh! Doesn't anyone remember that George Bush didn't even know that Africa was a continent a year ago? That he didn't know where Uruguay is?

Shrub had 0 foreign policy experience when he was appointed. His on the job training has been less than inspiring. The occurance on his watch of at least one of the most damaging foreign policy debacles in US history does not automaticly endow him with expertise or even qualify him to continue.
