Selling That Bridge to the 21st Century
In response to a "challenge" from Kerry to the Bush campaign to debate war, Bush-Cheney 04 Campaign Chair Marc Racicot responds.
Kerry's was a call, even if overblown for a debate. Racicot's was a statement that he can and should be called upon later. But he won't be.
In his response to Kerry, the former Montana (What, not former ??) governor lays down this gauntlet:
As the chairman of the President's campaign, we look forward to a debate with the eventual Democratic nominee on President Bush's steady leadership in these times of historic change. He has an optimistic vision and agenda that will move America forward toward greater prosperity, greater security, greater freedom and greater compassion. The American people are eager to hear how the War on Terror will be won, and how we can lead the United States to even greater prosperity here at home.
[Sorry, I just left the preamble in for amusement]
[Shocked I tell, you. Shocked. And 74 percent. Maybe 73.999999, but who's counting]
We intend to run a campaign on the issues and each candidate's record on those issues. We hope that in the future you and your surrogates will do the same.
Ha ha. "We intend to run a campaign on the issues and each candidate's record on those issues." Ha ha.
Yeah, that's the way it always is. It's never been any different. Oh, wait. ... Two links off the bushcheney2004.com / georgewbush.com Web page are "John Kerry:Unprincipled" and "When Angry Democrats Attack"
So, who's going to be there to call him and the campaign on what is already a broken pledge?
