Bush at rally in Pennsylvania:
"After repeatedly calling Iraq the wrong war, and a diversion, Senator Kerry this week seemed shocked to learn that Iraq is a dangerous place, full of dangerous weapons..."
"If Senator Kerry had his way... Saddam Hussein would still be in power. He would control those all of those weapons and explosives and could share them with his terrorist friends. Now the senator is making wild charges about missing explosives, when his top foreign policy adviser admits, quote, 'We do not know the facts.' Think about that: The senator is denigrating the actions of our troops and commanders in the field without knowing the facts..."
"Our military is now investigating a number of possible scenarios, including that the explosives may have been moved before our troops even arrived at the site. This investigation is important and it's ongoing. And a political candidate who jumps to conclusions without knowing the facts is not a person you want as your commander in chief."
Kerry grabs any headline he thinks he can use to his benefit. This attack is on the military, and is an old story, recycled here at election time by CBS and the NY Times. Now ABC could be planning the same thing. Drudge is reporting that " ABCNEWS HOLDS TERROR WARNING TAPE "
I am amazed at this election. I have never seen a candidate like Kerry, attack the President over unproved stories of unknown origin. The democrats have already filed lawsuits in Florida, and 60,000 thousand ballots are missing. The violence has increased against Republicans from pie throwing to cars running you down. The lies have been the big thing. I am not talking about debates and campaigning, that is expected, to change a few numbers here and there; but, the bold face lies told are unreal. "I met with the UN, in a room like this"....Later to be proved false, cannot be compared to "I own a lumber company, want some wood?" Well I have "wood" for this election to be over. I have predicted Bush will win but who knows. What should be Americas most pride filled season, this time has gotten ugly, hateful, and to me somewhat repulsive. Someone said after 9/11 we would soon forget, and we did. Instead of joining together to fight this war on terror on any front that is necessary, we let the press and the anti Americans divide us by crying mistakes are being made. Not many were against the Iraq war when shock and awe was on our TV screens. But then the hard part started and lives were lost, instead of support, we divided. Just like Vietnam. Lives will be lost in this war no matter who is President. Mistakes have been made and will continue to be made. No war is perfect, you cannot prepare for every situation, no matter what some candidates say. I am sickened by this.
