    More Hollywood Hate for Kerry to Ignore: Beat 'Madman' Bush

    Sen. John Kerry keeps pretending that President Bush hasn't already condemned the modestly funded Swift Boat Veterans for Truth's commercial and keeps ignoring the president's challenge to reject all ads from 527 organizations. And now the latest attack ads from Kerry's multimillion-dollar support groups have hit a new extreme.

    The pro-Kerry outfit MoveOn has teamed with Hollywood heavyweights including Rob Reiner, Matt Damon, Kevin Bacon, Scarlett Johansson, John Sayles, Ed Asner, Margaret Cho and Al Franken to unleash Bush-bashing ads (10, according to the Associated Press; 14, according to USA Today) for TV and the Internet.


    'Madman'
    Rap video director Benny Boom, who produced the first of the new attack ads to be released, said, "We've got to get George W. Bush out of office, and it's very important that kids understand what a serious condition the world is in with this madman."

    Among the commercials:


    An evil white policeman intimidates young black voters.

    When American workers begin disappearing, the multimillionaire Damon says, "George Bush - it's his job, or yours." What this movie star fails to mention is that his latest film, like most of Hollywood's fodder, was made overseas. Thousands of union jobs have vanished from L.A. so the producers can afford the stars' windfalls of $10 million, $20 million and even $30 million a pic.


    Actor Donal Logue, reprising the unlikely role of a cab driver he has played on MTV, part of the pro-Democrat media giant Viacom, claims he doesn't benefit from Bush's tax relief.

    A stewardess forces greedy businessmen to parachute into Iraq. A voiceover from Bacon (whose most convincing movie role was in "Telling Lies in America") whines, "What if the same men who profited from the war were asked to fight it?"

    Most of the ads end with the phrase "George Bush, he's not on our side."
    Bush isn't on the side of the pampered elitist fat cats of Malibu and Beverly Hills? And Kerry is? Fascinating!

    Reality Check

    Of course, MoveOn has never cared much about accuracy. CNSNews.com reported Aug. 10 that among the attack ads it was considering:


    One spot repeats yet again the false Democrat claim that Bush "cut educational funding" and "cut veterans benefits."
    In reality, CNSNews noted, "based on Bush's latest budget, education spending would increase 35.8 percent in just four years, from $42.2 billion in 2001 to $57.3 billion in 2005. Likewise, the Veterans Affairs budget would jump 37.6 percent under his watch."


    Another ad claims that Bush hasn't funded police departments and that "homeland security amounts to nothing."
    In reality, "Dating back to his 2003 budget, released months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Bush proposed a $3.5 billion boost to aid first responders, which the White House called a '10-fold increase' in federal resources. In Bush's latest budget, he proposes $3.6 billion for first-responder grants and $1.3 billion for state, local and hospital bioterrorism preparedness grants."


    Yet another video makes the opposite complaint, that Bush is spending too much.
    In reality, "The ad makes no mention of Kerry's proposals, which one study claims would boost federal spending by $226 billion in the first year of his presidency. The National Taxpayers Union Foundation conducted the analysis, concluding that in five years, Kerry's proposals would result in a $734.6 billion increase in government spending," CNSNews reported.

    Tinseltown's latest blast of venom could once more backfire on Kerry. Recall that at first he defended the rants of former Slim-Fast shill Whoopi Goldberg and company as "the heart and soul of America," but as the outcry rose he later tried to distance himself from the obscenity-laced hatefest.

    Can you cite the source of this misinformation?

    Don't believe everything you get in your e-mail box. If I did, I'd have Bill Gate's money and Ron Jeremy's dick.

    So they attack him for not spending enough and then they attack him for spending too much. Typical doubletalk from the liberals.

    They twist it and turn it until it suits their needs. Whether they've spun it into a lie or not doesn't matter to them.

    What's even more amazing is the lock step, democrap, dough heads, that believe all of it without question. The michael moore, whoopi goldberg, cher, al frankan, liberals.
