"Had I been reading to children and had my top aide whisper in my ear that America is under attack, I would have told those kids very nicely and politely that the president of the United States has something that he needs to attend to," Kerry said.I don't get what the fuss is about. Why shouldn't Dubya steal Herbert Hoover's campaign slogan? He's already stolen the employment policy (first president since Hoover to lose jobs on his watch) and his racial policy (first president since Hoover not to meet with the NAACP).
Kerry also ridiculed President Bush's claim that the nation has 'turned a corner'; in an era marked by terrorism and economic recession.
"Just saying that you've turned a corner doesn't make it so. Just like saying there are weapons of mass destruction (in Iraq) doesn't make it so. Just like saying you can fight a war on the cheap doesn't make it so. Just like saying "mission accomplished" doesn't make it so," Kerry said.
"The last president who used that slogan, who told us that prosperity was just around the corner, was Herbert Hoover during the Great Depression,"; he said.
And why blame Georgie for dawdling while America was under attack? It's not like Dick Cheney was going to ask his advice anyway.....
