New York Daily News - Politics - Kerry out of bounds on Cheney daugther: Bush: "Cheney daughter off limits: Bush

President Bush gingerly waded into the controversy over John Kerry's remarks about Vice President Cheney's lesbian daughter yesterday."

These guys are reacting as if Kerry had said something diaparaging about Cheney's daughter. He lauded Cheney and, in responding to the question, "do you think homosexuality is a choice", suggested one should ask Cheney's daughter. He ventured trhat I didn't think she would characterize her sexuality as a choice.

If it's OK to be homosexual, how come Cheney and his family are being so defensive? Are they suggesting it's OK for their daughter to be homosexual as long as it's never mentioned in public? Are they so ashamed in reality that they want to hide it?

Monday, October 11, 2004 / News / Politics / AdWatch: Bush turns Kerry's words around:

"In an interview with The New York Times magazine on Sunday, Kerry said the country has 'to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives but they're a nuisance.' Kerry also suggested that terrorism, like prostitution, illegal gambling and organized crime, will never be eradicated but can be reduced so 'it's not threatening the fabric of your life.'

Seizing on those comments, the Bush campaign took some of Kerry's words for an ad that tries to suggest the Democrat is unfit to lead the nation during the war on terrorism. The ad also argues that the country would be less safe with Kerry at the helm.

The commercial keys on comments Kerry has made in the past during interviews. However, it doesn't include the context in which the comments were made."

Here's Bush, a guy who is universally recognized as being severely challenged when it ocme to assembling a coherant sentence in English interpreting what someone elase is saying. Irony?
