    Statement by Former Senator Bob Dole

    ARLINGTON, VA – Former Senator Bob Dole issued the following statement:

    "As Chairman of the Bush-Cheney Veterans Coalition, and as a veteran, I call on John Kerry to demand that MoveOn.org take down their ad depicting a defeated American soldier.

    It's one thing to debate whether we should take the fight to the terrorists, but depicting an American soldier in effect surrendering in the battle against the terrorists is beyond the pale.

    I cannot believe that John Kerry, who reminds us daily of his Vietnam service, would possibly approve the disgusting and demoralizing portrayal of American soldiers fighting for us in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world.

    John Kerry has raised doubts about our troops' ability to maintain security as well as Iraqi's ability to decide their own future through elections. He has called the allies in Iraq "window dressing." This is all reminiscent of his appearance before a Senate Committee in 1971 where he suggested with nothing but second hand information American GIs were committing atrocities and war crimes of the worst kind in Vietnam.

    This defeatist attitude undermines the great progress and sacrifices of our men and women in the military and the contributions of our allies who are fighting against terror and standing up for freedom around the world.

    The politics of pessimism that is being pursued by John Kerry and the extreme liberals demonstrates they are consumed by the past with nothing to offer but attacks on the President's agenda for creating a safer world.

    John, say it isn't so and denounce this latest effort to divide Americans"

    For anyone with a brain in his head and eyes to see, this is a rebuke of the most profound and powerful sort.

    LOOK AT WHO SAID IT! If anyone has earned the right to express his outrage - and be heard and respected - it is Mr. Dole.

    Pull your head out of your ass, John.

    Sen. Dole's credentials and credibility are unassailable. Unfortunately the liberal media tends to ignore him. They're too busy chasing Michael Moore.

    They ignore him because they have nothing bad on him. He is a good man and a veteran. All around good guy. Not to mention of course,a Republican. He is the LMM's worst nightmare!!! He is right. Kerry has used the military to try and win this election. It is one thing to say that you served,but to think you have the right to show this horrible crap in a commercial is thoughtless!

    Well said, Krisy. Have you ever noticed that Mr. Dole never throws his service in anyone's face? He is a blast from the very best of our past - a true, quiet hero.
