Has anyone seen the swift boat vets ad?
It's being condemned so widely that I wonder if some Bush supporters fear it will backfire. I have not seen the ad? Have any of you seen it? Is it effective or is it so over the top that it makes one want to stick up for Kerry?

7. Only heard the radio version too. But did see the fac to face thing
on GOPCNN this afternoon with a guy from the bush camp and the man Kerry rescued going at it.

Pretty petty--splitting hairs etc. Made me sick. I heard that McCain was defending Kerry...is that right?

5. Yes
It sucked... and yes it will backfire.... none of those guys were with Kerry... even though the doc implies that he was... or that he at least treated him. How low can they go... McCain SLAMMED them... and asked how could the WH stoop so low???? Good job Mr. McCain.

8. See this article.....
http://www.airamericaradio.com /

>>"It was the same kind of deal that was pulled on me," McCain said in an interview with the Associated Press. In the 2000 South Carolina Primary Bush campaign operatives were accused of using phone banks to allege, among other things, that McCain had fathered a baby with an African American woman. After beating Bush in New Hampshire Primary, McCain's campaign was derailed by his primary defeat in South Carolina.<<

11. disgusting, since those guys were not on his boat
all the guys on Kerry's boat are campaigning their hearts out for him except the one guy who is dead. Those other guys don't know shit and are being paid off by rich Texan Bush supporters.

sick


And not one person has come forth to say they served with Bush at all. NOT ONE FUCKING PERSON!!!! There is a reward with NO TAKERS!!

16. The only guy on Kerry's boat who is not supporting him
is dead.

Those other guys in the attack ad were not on his boat. There is some rich Bush supporter who was on another boat in the same platoon or something and he hates Kerry. He's the asshole behind this "veterans for truth" bullshit. He's a huge Republican donor.

15. Nope
I haven't seen it and I don't plan on it, either.

I have read PLENTY about this group, plenty enough to know they have MAJOR axes to grind, the guy heading it (John O'Neill) was a paid attack dog for Nixon back in the day (against Kerry) and he admitted to the Dallas Observer that he is saying all this now BECAUSE Kerry is running for president.

Despicable. These guys are LOWER than fucking low. I give them no time and I brook no argument regarding this.

I also know their "arguments" and they hold no freaking water at all. I mean, they would be laughable if they weren't so vicious.

Their aim is clear. It's political. All this hogwash about "the people need to know the truth" is sickening and disingenuous at BEST.

They disgust me. And what's REALLY disgusting about it is that, while everyone is kept busy with THIS shit, we AREN'T talking about the real issues, such as the economy, Iraq, unemployment, health care, etc.

THAT really pisses me off. So I suggested in another thread that EVERY single Kerry service smear be met with questions about bush's AWOL status, then if they don't want to answer those/talk about bush's military record, you can say, "Then would you like to actually talk about issues of import now?"

Arseholes.
