Negative Campaigning

The cries of "foul" about negative campaign rhetoric in recent RNC speeches rings hollow.

Certainly they brought up a lot of negative points about John Kerry, but they had to do with his senate record and things he himself has said in public, and they are relavent.

Nobody called him Hitler or a facist or a dumb cowboy or anything like that. They called him a flip-flopper and someone who consistently votes against military enhancement and made their case with facts.

His military record was noted and praised. They made the "unfit to command" argument not with facts from his Vietnam record, but with facts from his Senate record.

If Senator Kerry feels that airing out his Senate Record is negative campaigning, he has only himself to blame.
