    WALLACE: Senator, the numbers don't add up... Well, I want to follow up on precisely that point, because in Friday's debate, Senator Kerry said that he would cut the deficit in half during his first term, he would cut taxes for the middle class, but he also had all these new spending programs. Are you saying right here and now that if the numbers, when you get into office, don't add up, that it's the spending programs that go first? EDWARDS: Yes... WALLACE: But again, just to clear it up, I just want to make clear that you're saying that...

    As John Kerry travels the country campaigning in the last 36 days of this election, he’ll be followed by a school of dolphins, led by Flipper, who will highlight Kerry’s flip-flops on every major issue from the war on terror to whether or not he owns an assault rifle or an SUV.

    Posted on Fri, Sep. 10, 2004 Man named in Bush memo left Guard before document was written BY PETE SLOVER The Dallas Morning News AUSTIN, Texas - (KRT) - The man named in a disputed memo as exerting pressure to "sugar coat" President Bush's military record left the Texas Air National Guard a year and a half before the memo was supposedly written, his own service record shows. An order obtained by The Dallas Morning News shows that Col. Walter "Buck" Staudt was honorably discharged on March 1, 1972. CBS News reported this week that a memo in which Staudt...
  • Suspicious Documents Went from DNC To Kerry Camp To CBS, Rather NOT a Victim

    All right, the big story that's out there, and you just have to keep this in perspective, my friends. The big story that's out there is "forged documents" utilized by CBS' 60 Minutes Wednesday night in the fifth or sixth regurgitation of the George Bush National Guard story. CBS is standing by their story. Dan Rather was on CNN mere moments ago standing by the story solidly, but what's he going to do, say, "Yeah, I screwed up. Give me a mulligan"? Not likely. Probably the best summary of this story can be found at the American Spectator. (Anatomy...

    Kerry citation a 'total mystery' to ex-Navy chief August 28, 2004 BY THOMAS LIPSCOMB Former Navy Secretary John Lehman has no idea where a Silver Star citation displayed on Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry's campaign Web site came from, he said Friday. The citation appears over Lehman's signature. "It is a total mystery to me. I never saw it. I never signed it. I never approved it. And the additional language it contains was not written by me," he said. The additional language varied from the two previous citations, signed first by Adm. Elmo Zumwalt and then Adm. John Hyland,...

    Chronicling a campaign day is akin to panning for gold. The shiny nuggets that reporters prize are those rare moments of spontaneity discovered amid the dross of synthetic sound bites and predictable partisan platitudes. That's why the media stars of Wednesday's rollout of the Democratic ticket were the younger children of John and Elizabeth Edwards: Jack, a thumb-sucking, free-spirited, 4-year-old, and Emma Claire, a 6-year-old nervously pretending to be mature for the occasion. Jack and Emma Claire's antics were the one element in the political tableau that not even the most cynical Republican could believe was scripted. Running for president...

    We have been hearing the lefties and mainstream press (sorry, that’s redundant) claiming that John Edwards background as a trial lawyer will aid him in his debate with Vice President Cheney. In the words of President Bush (subsequently appropriated by John Kerry): Bring it On! These cheerleaders obviously have never heard John Kerry discuss issues of national security in anything more than a 30 second sound bite. Because if they had they would have realized that John Edwards knowledge about national security and fighting the war on terror is about as deep as a puddle, and that his vaunted intellect...

  • Kerry-Edwards: Formidable, but Full of It

    He's pretty. And he can sell Kerry's relentless pessimism with a smile. But Kerry's calculation--that Edwards has won in a Red State and could help in the South-- is based on fuzzy math. Edwards was first elected in 1998--the year the GOP suffered historic Congressional losses due to impeachment fatigue-- and he was only able to eke out a slender win over Lauch Faircloth. Beating Lauch-- a less warm and fuzzy Jesse Helms, without Helm's retail skills-- isn't exactly like beating a Republican incumbent Senator in Utah. Edwards isn't exactly a good match for the new threat environment. He looks...
