The "S" Word
In a cunning twist of Kerry's words, Dick Cheney scoffed:
The obvious intent was to portray Kerry as soft on defense, someone who would kowtow to terror. What Kerry actually said to the minority journalists at the Unity 2004 conference was:
Obviously, Kerry's intent was to say there is a better way to combat terrorism and that an arrogant and isolationist policy will not do us any good.
What's pathetic about this is that Bush himself used the word sensitivity in the same conference, according to a press release from the White House:
In addition, Bush emphasized the need for sensitivity in a speech in 2001, a concept that he has since thrown out the window:
This is how the Administration plays the game, by putting politics over substance and by treating the electorate like fools who can be distracted by distortions and empty rhetoric.
It only means one thing: they're worried. I smell fear in the air.
