Al-Reuters says Bush Camp Trying to Portray Kerry as Liberal. (Hat tip: LGF)
CRAWFORD, Texas (al-Reuters) - President Bush goes to his third debate with Democrat John Kerry this week looking to accuse Kerry of shifting positions for political purposes and portray him as an out-of-the-mainstream Massachusetts liberal, top Bush aides said.As Charles Johnson writes, I guess it's called "bashing" when someone is correctly identified by their political views. According to the National Journal's congressional vote ratings, Kerry is the #1 most liberal Senator.
The liberal bashing strategy is one the Bush campaign used last spring to try to undermine a Kerry jump in the polls after he won the Democratic nomination for president.
