More Hypocritical Smears

July 8th, 2004

This from The Boston Herald:

A feisty President Bush yesterday took a broad swipe at Democratic vice presidential pick John Edwards – branding him as a lightweight lacking enough experience to step into the Oval Office.

Bush’s jab was in response to a reporter’s question about how Edwards, a freshman senator with a dynamic stump style, compared to his own running mate, Vice President Dick Cheney, who has decades of Washington experience but little flash.

“Dick Cheney can be president,” Bush snapped. “Next.”

Interesting. If you only have six years’ experience in politics, you’re a lightweight who cannot be president. Hmmm. Let’s see. Who else ran for office with only six years of experience in politics? Hmmm, would that be… maybe… SATAN? Er (apologies to the Church Lady), excuse me–BUSH?

And Bush’s Statement that “Dick Cheney can be president” probably sums up who was in charge when lightweight Bush took office four years ago.

This is at about the same level of hypocrisy as putting down Kerry and Edwards by saying that McCain was Kerry’s first choice, and he went to Edwards only after McCain turned him down. In fact, it is public knowledge that in 2000, Bush approached McCain and was turned down by him. Further, to say McCain was Kerry’s “first choice” is misleading at best–just because Kerry contacted him does not mean he was at the top of the list. Kerry undoubtedly contacted others on his A-list, and not necessarily in order of preference.

    Somehow I’m guessing the Democrats are not going to make the case that Edwards’s short senate experiece is irrelivant by compairing it to Bush before he took the office. True they both had little experience but what does that say about Edwards if you’re compairing him to Bush? I don’t think they wanna go there.

    As you daily bang on about Bush and Kerry, I suggest you take a look at the underlying truth about the pair of them. Here’s a good primer:
