The Kerry campaign has decided to fight the total trash emanating from the White House directly. Today, they released "Key Unanswered Questions on Bush's Record in the National Guard."
Here's part of it, but go read the whole thing.
If George Bush wants to ask me questions about that through his surrogates, he owes America an explanation about whether or not he showed up for duty in the National Guard. Prove it. That's what we ought to have. I'm not going to stand around and let them play games." -- John Kerry, NBC News, 4/26/04
-- Bush Has Said He Used No Special Treatment To Get Into The Guard. How Does He Explain The Fact That He Jumped Ahead Of 150 Applicants Despite Low Pilot Aptitude Scores?
-- Col. Albert Lloyd Said A Report From Alabama To Ellington Should Have Been Filed. Where Is That Report?
-- Why Did Bush Miss His Medical Exam In 1972?
-- Where Are The Complete Results Of The Required Investigation Into Bush's Absence From The Exam?
-- Why Did Bush Specifically Request To NOT Be Sent Overseas For Duty?
-- Why Does The White House Say Bush Was On Base When Bush's Superiors Had Filed A Report Saying He Was Gone For A Whole Year?
-- Why Is The Pentagon Under Orders To Not Discuss Bush's Record With Reporters?
-- Where Are Bush's Flight Logs?
-- Why Hasn't Bush Himself Demonstrated That He Showed Up For Service in Alabama?
Does Bush REALLY want to make this election a referendum on which man had more impressive service during Vietnam?
Enemy fire in the Mekong Delta versus keg parties by the apartment complex pool?
A Silver Star, a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts versus "Take my word for it, I really did show up for the Alabama National Guard"?
If so, bring it on.
