This is more like it, John

Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the presumed Democratic nominee for president, accused President Bush on Tuesday of having knowingly exaggerated evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, saying the president made “colossal mistakes” before, during and after the war.


“We know they exaggerated the material purposefully,” Kerry said in an interview on MSNBC-TV’s “Hardball,” “and yet the president says he didn’t make a mistake,” referring to Bush’s statement during a news conference this month that he could not remember a major mistake he had made during his administration.


“I think the president has made some colossal mistakes," said Kerry, who said Bush “rushed into the war,” effectively driving away U.S. allies and putting U.S. forces at greater risk than they should have been.

I'd like to thank the Bush campaign for doing John Kerry a big favor. The Vietnam military service controversy had died down, but you folks brought it back. Thanks again, the public is once again reminded that John Kerry was a decorated war hero in Vietnam while George W. Bush was AWOL from the National Guard. And now John Kerry is angry and he's coming out swinging, and that is just the kind of attitude he needs to maintain to win.
