Kerry Spokesman Responds to RNC Attack Ad

The RNC has released a new web ad today on the "Democrats' Plan For Iraq" titled 'Retreat 'and Defeat'. The ad is being sent to RNC supporters, grassroots activists and all of the GOP State Parties. It highlights attacks from the RNC on statements by Democratic leaders Howard Dean, Barbara Boxer and John Kerry.

Kerry spokesman David Wade issued this statement in response to the RNC ad which the GOP Blog describes as showing a "white flag of surrender waving over Democrats":

"The only shots these Republican hacks have ever fired are from their computers, so they might not know that the flag that flew over John Kerry's boat in Vietnam was red, white, and blue.

Only in Dick Cheney's party would a vice president who skipped Vietnam on five deferments allow an attack on a veteran with 3 Purple Hearts. They want a debate about patriotism? Bring it on.

These Republicans who misled America into war and sent our troops into battle without body armor have no shame and even less credibility. The President's lapdogs should spend more time trying to succeed in the war in Iraq and less time waging a war of words against a Senator who fights for our troops."

Obviously our Democratic leaders and the growing public consensus against the Iraq war has got the RNC running scared -- one could even say Democrats have "terrorized" the Republicans.

Let's show the RNC we're tired of their attacks and smears on our leaders -- donate to John Kerry's Keeping America's Promise PAC's Fight Back Fund.

I support those ads and I was in the First Gulf War. I heard Kerry make those remarks. I know what he said, and I know that his remarks are not being taken out of context. Democrats hate it when they use their own words against them! How is repeating Kerry's words a cheap shot?

Come on. We've heard what Kerry said too, and the transcript is available. You can't fool someone by denying they are misquoting Kerry.
