Desperation 101 - Continued

Every once in awhile, this blog engages in a little prophecy of a political sort. It's that time again: About 70 days from now, A Vet predicts the not-so-swifters failed smear campaign will be seen as a key cog in the election of John Kerry.

The Repub campaign was totally thrown off track for three weeks by - yes let's use the words because they are accurate - liars, deceivers, and now a criminally acting chief lawyer of George Bush. This off the newslines less than an hour ago:

An election lawyer for President Bush who also has been advising a veterans group running TV ads against Democrat John Kerry resigned Wednesday from Bush's campaign.

"I cannot begin to express my sadness that my legal representations have become a distraction from the critical issues at hand in this election," Benjamin Ginsberg wrote in a resignation letter to Bush released by the campaign.

The Bush campaign can't win with truth because they don't know what it is. Mr. Bush's latest failure of leadership now resides in his own campaign. How can anyone with a straight face say that George Bush is right for this country? Desperate lies and tactics are speeding the demise of this administration.
