AP: New Ads Assail Bush on The Economy, War in Iraq

WASHINGTON - A new television ad by a liberal interest group admits President Bush has created jobs - "in places like China" - while another anti-Bush spot accuses the president of lying to Americans about the reasons for going to war in Iraq

The Media Fund and MoveOn.org, groups working on behalf of Democrats but independently from presumptive Democratic nominee John Kerry, are running the ads in battleground states where Bush is on the air.

The Media Fund's latest ad, which will start running Wednesday in 17 states, criticizes Bush for enacting policies that it says have contributed to nearly 3 million jobs lost and accuses him of supporting tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas.

"During the past three years, it's true George W. Bush has created more jobs. Unfortunately, they were created in places like China," the ad says as the camera zooms out from a picture of billowing smoke stacks to reveal a factory with Chinese writing on it.

MoveOn's new spot will air in New York and Washington, D.C., beginning Saturday. The ad claims that Bush did not tell the truth a year ago when laying out the case for war with Iraq, and it urges Congress to censure the president.

A Bush imitator gives MoveOn's version of what Bush should have said in his State of the Union address: "My fellow Americans, we have no evidence that Iraq has stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. No connection to 9/11. No nuclear capability. They pose no imminent threat to us." The ad then says: "If he said that, would we have gone to war, spending $125 billion and losing more than 500 American lives?"

4. That's awesome
Those are the issues we need to be hitting Bush* on. Hopefully they will be able to air them in some battleground states and on the news networks later on.

I can't wait to hear the Repubs. complain. "Oh, you can't call the President a liar! That's unpatriotic!" Well, then I guess they're the kings of anti-patriotism for what they said about Clinton

What goes around comes around. In your face, Bush*.
