What's Kerry gonna do? Just call for the rights 527's to stop and not the lefts? That won't look good to independent voters.
Say what you will about GWB, but he's a politician on par with Bill Clintpon and he has one extra benefit. All these so called brilliant people on the left keep underestimating him and he keeps kicking their @sses all over the place. Kerry on the other hand is a bumbling political fool. He changes with the wind and comes off as whiney. His reaction to the Swift Boat Veterans is exactly what they wanted. And now it can't be ignored.
It's all a fight for the undecideds and Kerry looks worse and worse every day
There's a lot of time between now and election day... and I seriously doubt that the swiftliars' ad carried much impact with any but the small percentage of "undecided" veterans. And as the lies continue to be exposed... and the connections to the Bush campaign are spotlighted, a backlash against Bush is entirely possible.
As to the 527 ads, here's an idea... how about we call for the ones who are lying
to desist? IMO, Bush should have done that long ago.
