CLARK APOPLECTIC ABOUT NEW RNC AD - Calls for it's removal
FOX NEWS

Posted on 11/23/2003 4:05:41 PM PST by ODDITHER

Did anyone else catch Clark being interviewd on Fox News? He was almost hyperventalating as he called on the President and the RNC to pull the ad and not run it any more. He said "How dare they say that the candidates running for election are for terrorism."

After reading the text of the Ad, I have concluded that he must be feeling a tad guilty, because the Ad doesn't say anything about them supporting terrorism. Although it should!! Because that is what they are doing.

The Ad must be good because it's pushing all the right buttons.

Here is the ad:

http://www.rnc.org/Newsroom/Releases/nov03/IowaAds.htm

RNC to Run Ads Around Democratic Presidential Debates

Washington, DC-The Republican National Committee today announced it will begin running television ads in Iowa on Sunday, November 23.

"After 10 months, Democrats running for President have coalesced around policies that are wrong for America. They unanimously oppose the President's policy of pre-emptive self-defense. They unanimously support massive tax increases. The RNC will continue to highlight the differences between the two parties on policy after policy that will provide the American people a clear choice in the next election," said Ed Gillespie, Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

To view the ad, go to: http://www.rnc.org/Newsroom/RNCResearch/Reality.htm

Script
Title: "Reality"
Time: 30 Seconds

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: "It would take one vial, one canister, one crate slipped into this country to bring a day of horror like none we have ever known."
CHYRON: Strong and Principled Leadership
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: "Our war against terror is a contest of will in which perseverance is power."
CHYRON: Some are now attacking the President for attacking the terrorists.
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: "Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent. Since when have terrorists and tyrants announced their intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike?"
CHYRON: Some call for us to retreat, putting our national security in the hands of others.
CHYRON: Call Congress Now
CHYRON: Tell them to support the President's policy of preemptive self-defense.
REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ED GILLESPIE: "The Republican National Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising."
CHYRON: Ed Gillespie
CHYRON: Chairman, RNC
CHYRON: The Republican National Committee paid for and is responsible for the content of this advertising. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate committee. www.gop.com

"How dare they say that the candidates running for election are for terrorism."

How dare Dims say that our President concocted this war as a means of making himself richer. He wasn't upset over Tubby Kennedy claimed the war was dreamt up in Texas.

Go back to your sewer, Clark!

Yes, saw him as well; there will be more to come doubt from the rest of them.

The loserwhiners know when the truth hurts; of course, it hurts even more when that truth is shared.

Perhaps the RNC could follow up with an ad; enlarging a bit on this; using their own quotes from their own diatribes.

Still wondering how Clark made General. This guy has no clue. Nobody was making that assertion, but since he brought it up it will have to be argued down by the Dems.

Pssst. General... You are supposed to put up strawmen that make the other side look bad, not yours.

I saw the advertisement.

It's not bad at all. Actually, it's very good.

Why would General Clark find fault with this ad?

This is the only line that even mentions the Bush- and America- haters.

Some call for us to retreat, putting our national security in the hands of others.

I suggest an ad that starts with just that line, and then shows the top two or three Dem candidates making exactly that case in videotaped soundbites. But it's probably better to wait till it's down to one candidate.

May I suggest he shove his head into a paper bag.

"...as he called on the President and the RNC to pull the ad and not run it anymore."

Dream on Clark! Besides, I don't need to see an ad to tell me that you are part of the problem when it comes to terrorism....you've proven that point better than any Republican ad ever could.

I didn't see Clark, but I saw Dashle this moring. He said the ad should be pulled too. That tells me they think it will be very effective. The ad did not say they were unpatriotic or un-American. Their twisted mindset is imagining that--or fabricating it.

One point about Dashle. He really slipped--twice. He said the ad was illegal, and then stopped himself. Later her screwed up again by letting the truth slip. He said he was going to fight Bush as "viciously" as he could. He corrected himself to "fight as vigorously" but the truthful addmission was already out there.

===

Excellent point. The ad doesn't mention Democrats at all.

So why do the Dems think the ad speaks about them?

Hint: Because that is what they are saying, exactly.

If the shoe fits...

If the Dems are such Patriots, why does it bother them that someone makes a point about "some call for us to retreat...", if it doesn't apply to them?

By complaining bitterly about the ad, THEY are the ones making it clear that THEY are the ones the ad is talking about, who want to put us all at risk.

They know they have not dumbed down the sheeple enough, or maybe too much. The ad definately appeals to emotion also, and the Dims realize their own weapon is being used against them. ;-)

And it seems the only thing he knows how to do is call for people to resign. I wonder when the Dems will call for his resignation from his know-nothing candidacy. I give him another 100 days, and he's toast.

The Democrat Party is both guilty of being traitors to the USA and guilty of treason to the USA! It needs to be destroyed at the ballot box. Wesley Clark is a traitor, and should be treated as such. By the way....so are all the other Democrat candidates! Bill & Hillary and all in their administration are directly responsible for 911. I just hope Americans continue to hear the horrible thud sounds caused by people jumping fron the WTC on 911 rather than be incinerated by exploding/burning jet fuel. Bill Clinton was too busy with Monica Lewinsky to care! The American people are fools to listen to any word these traitor/treason Democrats and their liberal, left-wing media utter. A vote for any Democrat is vote for your own death and death of your children and families. This USA of ours is at war. And...the Democrat party is fully enabling our enemies to kill our military and civilian citizens! The blood of our honored dead drips from their filthy liberal hands!

While missing the Fox interview, I did see Clark on Face the Nation this morning, and I must say I was surprised to see Bob Shieffer ream him a new one about his inconsistant statements. He even said something to the effect that some would say that he says whatever he thinks someone wants to hear.

Does that sound familiar?
