A Message From Ed Gillespie

Ed Gillespie has a message that I would like to share with Visitors to E*D. Ed is the Chairman for the RNC.
We are only days away from the opening proceedings of what will be one of the most important political conventions in our country's history.

We are going to honor the courage of our nation, the compassion of our people and the promise of our future.

We will provide stark contrast in this election, while John Kerry continues to try and have it both ways.

Shadow groups formed for the expressed purpose of defeating President Bush and electing John Kerry have spent $63 million attacking the president, while John Kerry remained silent. But when anti-Kerry groups began to run ads against him, he thunders in righteous indignation.

John Kerry can't have it both ways.

He can't say that somebody in Swift Boat Veterans for Truth knowing somebody who knows Karl Rove is proof of illegal coordination--when his former campaign manager works for three of the 527s attacking the President; when an executive committee member of the Democratic National Committee heads The Media Fund; and when the chairman of the Democratic Convention also heads Moving America Forward, a pro-Kerry 527.

John Kerry can't have it both ways.

John Kerry can't say that Ben Ginsberg providing legal advice to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth while serving as outside counsel to the Bush-Cheney campaign is evidence of illegal coordination when Bob Bauer serves as legal counsel to both the Kerry campaign and America Coming Together, and Joe Sandler serves as General Counsel to the Democratic National Committee and to and Moving America Forward all at the same time.

Bob Bauer and Joe Sandler are not likely to resign any time soon, but I respect Ben for deciding to do so.

John Kerry can't have it both ways.

We are a party of ideas and our President has led in providing solutions to the challenges we face.

The American people recognize the President's commitment to getting results. In a Los Angeles Times poll released today, 52% of registered voters--not likely, but registered voters--approve of the job that President Bush is doing and has him now with a three-point lead over Senator Kerry as we go in to our convention.

The poll shows 15% of Democrats crossing party lines in support of President Bush. Senator Zell Miller will be giving voice to a lot of voters here Wednesday night.

In Boston, Senator Kerry missed an opportunity to outline his vision for the future choosing instead to look back. In New York, we won't spend all our time looking backward. We will talk about the new challenges we face as a nation and new policies to address them.

And we will win in November.
Yes indeed, Senator Kerry cannot have it both ways.

On another note, why isn't the ACLU making a fuss over a Senator, a representative of our federal legislature, and possible future commander in chief, who is trying to silence and intimidate ordinary citizens in what can only be described as a blatant attempt to infringe on their constitutional rights? For as much lipservice as the left gives to protecting civil liberties, and as many attacks as have been lodged at John Ashcroft and the Bush Administration for the Patriot Act and Guantanamo Bay, the left and their front group on civil liberties, the ACLU, have been awefully silent about Kerry's attempts to silence the Swift Vets.

As far as I am concerned there should be no infringements on any person or group's right to political speech, especially in the run up to an election. This is not to say that lies should not be dealt with, harshly even; but so long as the attacks (or positive ads) are true, then there should be no attempts by the government to limit this constitutionally protected speech.... but I'll save this for another post.
