    No one is questioning this group's freedom of speech. The question was is this group violating law by pretending to be an issue group when they were tied to a candidate campaign. That's up the FEC to decide.

    This group has the right to say whatever they want, whether it is appropriate and/or factual is for the voters to decide.

    How have YOU determined that Bush is supporting their ads? Why not get outraged about Kerry and camps support of Moveon.org, etc?

    you prove once again the ACLU's double standard. Maybe they will give you a promotion!

    So then on what grounds is Kerry threatening to sue the book publisher and anyone else accociated with these Vets?? Sounds like supression of free speech to me.

    I believe it's called Libel and Defamation of Character, both of which are grounds for a lawsuit.

    Moveon.com doesn't pretend to be neutral. They unabashadly support John Kerry, and they unabashadly support Democratic candidates.

    Just so I have you right here.......Move on is not liable for a defamation of character lawsuit because they openly claim they are in co-hoots with Kerry, but because the Swift Vets claim to be non-partisan they are liable even though they were there and saw with their own eyes Kerry's outright lying??????? :poop:

    Sen. Kerry has called for the President to take these ads off the air. Considering that neither the President, nor his re-election campaign, are responsible for the ads, Sen. Kerry is demanding that the President suspend the First Ammendment rights of the Swiftboat Vets Against Kerry organization by denying them the right to express their political opinion in whatever fashion they wish.
