Response to Kerry condems anti-Bush service add.
Kerry said it was inappropriate. That is no stronger a "comdemnation" than the Bush campaign's remarks on the Swift ad.
The difference in the ads is that in the Swift ad you have accusations made by named individuals with first hand knowledge. Nothing, not a single claim, in the ad has been rebutted by the Kerry camp. The moveon ad rehashes unproven unsourced claims about Bush and the Guard. Every accusation in the moveon ad has been looked into by the press over the years and there is not a single shred of evidence that anything in it is true. The press should examine the Swift accusations with the same diligence as they did looking into Bush missing drills or not.
