WASHINGTON –RNC Press Secretary Tracey Schmitt issued the following statement on Senator John Kerry’s remarks at Brown University this afternoon.

“John Kerry's attacks on President Bush's efforts to assist the victims and rebuild the Gulf Coast don't come as a surprise - armchair quarterbacking on tough issues has never been a problem for Senator Kerry.  Such tactics haven’t served him well in the past and today is no exception. The American people have pulled together during a difficult time and Democrats’ efforts to politicize this tragedy are unsavory at best.”

Whoa! That's pretty strong for the Bush admin. Maybe they're getting sick and tired of these people smearing their good name .. it's about time.

More people died in the Chicago Heat Wave of 1995 than died in all of Louisiana as a result of Hurricane Katrina! (739 vs 579)

Where was Bill Clinton, Algore & FEMA Director James Witt?

So it looks like the Scum of the Left have launched a coordinated attack...reprobates Clinton and Kerry. Let us hope that Bush will fight back by making these scum bags out to be what they are...PUBLICLY.

This isnt a big suprise. Kerry is a dope. I think rush said, 'mabey he will vote for the funding for NO before he votes against it". Kerry needs to be laughed at.

this is the same loser that spent an entire presidential campaign avoiding taking any position on any significant issue.

Personally, I have been waiting for a long time, for someone to come out and just tell it like it is...

They don't have to stoop to name-calling like the dems do, but there is nothing wrong with pointing out what these idiots are doing....

"Kerry needs to be laughed at."

Exactly! He is such a fool and a clown that he needs a heavy dose of merciless mockery.

I agree .. it's about time to let the dems know - we hear what they're saying, and we see what they're doing - and so does the public.

"The American people have pulled together during a difficult time and Democrats’ efforts to politicize this tragedy are unsavory at best.”

"Unsavory at best ..."

Class response that definitely gets the message across.

Personally, I hope the DemWits keep it up as I really do believe in the long haul it will backfire on them.

They should just go ahead and change their official party name to the "Hate Party".

They haven't had a positive thought or agenda in so many years any way.

Somebody needs to start asking John Kerry why U.S. taxpayers spent $16 billion on his Big Dig instead of on the levees in New Orleans!!!

I just clicked on CNN for a second....and the show The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer...

Well, he has this real bonehead named Cafferty doing one-liners and polls and such...

THIS is their lastest poll question: " Do you think that Karl Rove of Ray Nagin should have a say so in when the citizens return to NO?"

WTH???? In what way are these two men comparable, in order to put them side by side in a poll question???

Now everybody standby for the DNC response to the RNC response to the Kerry response to the Bush response... Should be fun to watch.

A very concise, articulate put down and a refreshing change from the "kinder gentler/turn the other cheek" approach to dealingwith the lunatic left that has been the Bush administration trademark. My congratulations to Tracey Schmitt. Let's keep it coming.

I agree with you----

although I want the spokespeople to speak out like this Tracy did....

The MORE of these idiotic speeches that the dems give, between now and 2008...the better for ANYONE that runs on the Rep. ticket!

Gosh, they even have Cindy Sheehan giving speeches about Katrina! So now she is a hurricane expert? She is a lousy mother, and a horrid person.

"More people died in the Chicago Heat Wave of 1995 than died in all of Louisiana as a result of Hurricane Katrina! (739 vs 579)"

And in 2001 I think it was, 15000 mostly elderly died in France in the heat wave of August. And they said our response was slow.

Regarding Cindy al-Sheehan,that statement bears repeating.I'm past sick and tired of hearing her being made to seem a saint and a martyr in the MSM,when she didn't even raise her son,and has trampled his grave and everything he fought and died for,while being a useful idiot for the traitorous left. If she ever was truly a grieving mother,she left it behind long ago just so she could have her name and hateful screeching voice foisted upon the public.What grieving mother would desecrate the memory of her own son the way this woman has?

Not only has she done all of that to her hero son's life and memory...

She has ruined these years for her other children...and threw away a marriage...

If there EVER was a person to point to, to show how NOT to be a grown up, mother, wife and woman...SHE would be the poster person!!!

With all due respect to President Bush, I must say that Clinton and Kerry do have much more experience dealing with natural disasters, seeing as how they've lived thru Hurricane Hillary and Hurricane Teresa.

As I posted the day after the flood hit New Orleans, a lot of liberals would end up having to eat their words.

Now NBC seems to be questioning the lie/interview that Tim Russert did with the parish president and his excellent acting job two Sundays ago.

Now that the emotions are dying down citizens are starting to reflect on who did what to whom.

Without the emotions the crass reporting by some news talkers just will not stand up under scrutiny.

I believe that the administration will eventually come out of this with a very good name.

Despite what the radical left would like to think , opinion polls are exactly that, opinions at a particular time and brother they are changing.

Vicious attack on Kerry by rabid right wig because Kerry respectfully disagreed with Bush exploitation of the poor. That's probably how the msm news will spin it.

How odd, I dialed the number, (two X's) and got a recorded message from Verizon wireless that the number is no longer in service. Any suggestions?

"Unsavory at best" is real tough talk, if you're at a wine tasting. On the political playground it's code for "I need my @ss kicked some more please."

Effin's just PO'ed because Teh-RAY-zuh dropped Kerry as her last name.

She knows she won't need to add it back for '08, because she knows her hubby will be left with the muck, mire, and flotsam (not to mention the jetsam) in the wake of Hurricane Hillary!.

Exactly. These people need something a little stronger than the usual watered-down eau de whup-ass they get from Republicans.
Time we lowered the tone to a range they can hear and understand.

I have to agree that "unsavory" is a weasel word...but hey, it is better than nothing...and at least Kerry was called out for being an armchair quarterback...

I am just glad to see a response..ANY response...you sure don't see Frist, McCain, Graham, or any other REP. Senator out there speaking up for Pres. Bush...

I just tried the number again, and got through...

I dialed directly from my cell phone---no 1- or anything, just 202-863-8614.

Doofus Kerry likely had to have someone explain what the words in the press release meant. This piece of canine feces still disgusts me, and he lost the election nearly a year ago!
