After Elder finished, Laura ruminated that this may not be a useful avenue of attack for Bush since the Dems could respond that Kerry was risking his life in Vietnam and Bush was in the National Guard. She also said that the Dems have been going lightly lately in terms of attacking Bush on his National Guard record. I think this is what prompted the call mentioned above.
Elder was a great guest--articulate, informative, and authoritative. Laura needs to stand back and let a guest like Elder get out his message. I listen to her every day so I don't think I am being unfair. She doesn't think that attacking Kerry on his military record is useful. His antiwar activities yes, his military service no.
Dubya should not do the attacks. The swifties are the right ones to go after Kerry. We need to find ways to help keep their message rolling.
I don't think they have at all. A lot of the speakers at the DNC have mentioned that Kerry volunteered to go to VN. The contrast they are making is obvious. And IIRC, he only "volunteered" to go to VN after he found out he couldn't avoid it.
I would agree with her......there is nothing I find in the docs that really screams expose to write about.
Nevertheless, I think this is worthy. The swiftvets stuff IS worthy of reporting....very damning stuff.
Somebody needs to ask Kerry who put him in for his medals.
