The president portrayed Kerry as out of step with his own party on security matters. "He stands in opposition not just to me, but to the great tradition of the Democratic Party," Bush said in an appeal to Democrats.
"The party of Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and John Kennedy is rightly remembered for confidence and resolve in times of war and in hours of crisis. Senator Kerry has turned his back on 'pay any price' and 'bear any burden.' And he has replaced those commitments with 'wait and see,' and 'cut and run.' "
Leaving aside the President's obvious misrepresentations of Kerry's stance on security, it's nice that Bush recognizes Democrats' essential contributions to the Cold War. Somebody tell Ann Coulter.
