That Bush Ad....Nails It!

In the newest Bush ad, the announcer claims that John Kerry hasn't attended over 76% of the Senate Intelligence Committee meetings.....and yet Kerry claims he takes our intelligence and the War on Terror seriously.

This article pretty much shows that the Bush ad is correct!

Summary: "A Bush-Cheney '04 ad released Aug. 13 accuses Kerry of being absent for 76% of the Senate Intelligence Committee's public hearings during the time he served there. The Kerry campaign calls the ad "misleading," so we checked, and Bush is right.

Official records show Kerry not present for at least 76% of public hearings held during his eight years on the panel, and possibly 78% (the record of one hearing is ambiguous).

Kerry points out that most meetings of the Intelligence Committee are closed and attendance records of those meetings aren't public, hinting that his attendance might have been better at the non-public proceedings. But Kerry could ask that his attendance records be made public, and hasn't."

Read the whole article. It is great.

This ad is correct. If only most of Bush's ads were, but you are right, this one nails it. He rarely attended.
