DNC To Launch Attack on Bush’s Guard Service

According to the Drudge Report, the Democratic National Committee is set to launch a fresh attack on President Bush’s National Guard service.

“George Bush has a clear pattern of lying about his military service,” DNC Communications Director Jano Cabrera blasts in the new release. “From 1978 to the present day, George Bush has refused to tell voters the truth about his service. It’s time for the President to come clean.”

“Flyers distributed to Texas voters during Bush’s failed Congressional race say ‘he served in the U.S. Air Force and the Texas Air National Guard.’ But according to Air Force officials, Air National Guardsmen are not counted as members of the active-duty Air Force.”

***********

Do they really think this will change voters mind? Will this really hurt Bush? I think this will end up blowing in the DNC’s faces. The Republican National Committee and George Bush come out of this thing looking like angels. There are serious questions about John Kerry’s services, but the RNC and Bush have said nothing about Kerry’s service. The DNC has constantly questioned President Bush’s service, and John Kerry has questioned Dick Cheney’s.

Apparently John Kerry is not going to take Bill Clinton’s advice to get off Vietnam. And he is going to pay in the polls for it.

    While I generally agree with your post, I must point one thing out. Kerry did not attack Cheney’s service; he attacked his LACK of service.

    I wonder how BJ Clinton feels about Kerry attacking those who chose not to serve in the military during Vietnam?

    RJ,

    You are exactly right about Kerry attacking Cheney’s lack of service. Two ironies in what Kerry said:

    1) Kerry applied for a deferment to study in France. It was denied. Then Kerry applied to the Navy and chose Swift Boats because, at the time, they were not seeing action in Viet Nam. Instead, they were mostly based off the Coast. So Kerry tried two different ways to avoid service. Just read Kerry’s book, “Tour of Duty” and you’ll find this confirmed there.
    2) When Kerry should have learned his lesson and gotten off the whole Viet Nam message to something more current, what does he do? Schedules a MIDNIGHT rally so that he could give a rambling speech about how Cheney did not serve in Viet Nam. Well, I didn’t hold Bill Clinton’s draft dodging against him, why would I hold Cheney’s deferments against him?

    Kerry his campaign vessel right towards those craggy rocks ahead. Will he turn away in time? Tune in on November 2nd I guess.

    Thanks,

    David

    Perhaps the same way he feels about those who choose to hide-out in a Floridian Junior College and not serve in the military during Iraq…
