‘88, actually.

Ironically, most people link the Willie Horton ads with GHWB, but they were actually run against Dukakis in the ‘rat primaries. Bush just brought up the subject in the debates.

According to Wikipedia (yeah, take it with a grain of salt, I know), the issue was first brought up by Gore, and apparently the ads were indeed run by the Bush campaign. I’m not 100% sure that’s correct, but that’s what they have.

i knew it was either john f’n kerry or igore who brought it up. it first came to light in the primaries. GHWB did run commercials on it, though, and got the lion’s share of the blame, although GHWB’s add didn’t mention the guy’s race.

According to Wikipedia (yeah, take it with a grain of salt, I know), the issue was first brought up by Gore, and apparently the ads were indeed run by the Bush campaign.

You can credit the late Lee Atwater. From a 1990 article by Roger Simon:

LEE ATWATER ALWAYS INSISTED HE'D first learned about the furlough issue from the Democrats. It was one of the few things he ever gave the Democrats credit for. Al Gore had raised the furlough issue on April 2, 1988 in New York during a primary debate, though he did not name Willie Horton.

The Republicans were already looking for dirt, however. Atwater had already formed what he called his "Nerd Patrol." "The only group that I was very interested in having report to me directly," Atwater said after the election, "was opposition research." Opposition research was headed by Jim Pinkerton, who had worked in the 1980 Reagan campaign, at the White House, and at the Republican National Committee.

"He had about 35 excellent nerds who were in the research division," Atwater said. "They came back with enough data to fill up this room."

The Nerd Patrol researched the Democratic candidates, every controversial thing they had ever said, every controversial position they had ever taken or policy they had carried out. Dukakis, as the likely nominee, soon became their chief target. In the end, the 35 excellent nerds produced 125,000 quotes from 436 sources and put them all on a computer disk for instant recall.

But Jim Pinkerton, too, claimed he first heard about the furlough issue from the Democratic debate in New York. A light went off in his head. And he called one of his best Massachusetts sources, Andy Card, a former Republican legislator now working at the White House. Pinkerton asked Card about the furloughs. Card filled him in on Willie Horton and more. "If you think that's bad, let me tell you about the pledge," Card said to Pinkerton. Dukakis had vetoed a bill that would have required teachers to lead schoolchildren in the Pledge of Allegiance because the state supreme court and the attorney general had said it was unconstitutional and unenforceable. Now Pinkerton had two issues.

"It was sort of like looking for penicillin and discovering nylon instead," Pinkerton said. So Pinkerton told Atwater about Willie Horton and a light went off in Atwater's head, too. "It's the single biggest negative Dukakis has got," Atwater said.

And that's the way the Bush campaign insisted it happened: the Democrats raised furloughs first. So go blame Al Gore for injecting Willie Horton into the campaign. Don't blame us. But, in fact, Newsweek, Business Week, and the "CBS Evening News" had all carried stories about Horton before Gore mentioned him in the debate. And the Lawrence (Mass.) Eagle-Tribune had done more than 200 stories about the furlough program and had won a Pulitzer Prize for them before Gore ever opened his mouth.

But Bush officials continued to insist they first heard about it from Gore. Once they heard, though, they knew what they had.

He’s running for President. (And he will win) Sadly, I don’t think this Dukakis will be as meek as the last oen about imposing his left wing agenda on the nation.
