Watch out for these people… they have even less scruples than the Bush administration! I didn’t think it was possible.
Conservative Campaign Ad Features Reagan (without his family’s permission, I would add).
The Club for Growth’s ad, which is to begin airing Wednesday, portrays both Republican presidents as leaders — Reagan on communism and Bush on terrorism, while claiming Kerry was “wrong then, wrong now” on national security.
The ad shows Kerry, a Vietnam veteran, testifying to Congress in 1971 that “we cannot fight communism all over the world and I think we should have learned that lesson by now.”
Former President Reagan is then seen at the Berlin Wall in 1987, saying “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” That’s followed by Bush telling rescue workers at the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks: “I can hear you, the rest of the world hears you, and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”
And just don’t get me started on last week’s Republican-fueled national orgasm of amnesia about the nightmare that was the Reagan administration (a.k.a GipperPorn).
