Kerry will die "Wahrheit" zurück ins Weiße Haus führen

--- Die Bush-Herausforderer Kerry und Edwards werfen dem jetzigen Amtsinhaber und seiner Crew in einem Interview mit der Washington Post vor, ein Kabinett der Lüge aufgebaut zu haben: President Bush has governed in a dishonest fashion, trampling values on every issue except fighting terrorism and leaving voters "clamoring for restoration of credibility and trust in the White House again," John F. Kerry and John Edwards said in an interview. "The value of truth is one of the most central values in America, and this administration has violated" it, Kerry said in an interview with The Washington Post aboard the Democrats' campaign plane Friday. "Their values system is distorted and not based on truth." The Democratic nominee and his running mate said it was that kind of anger toward the president that prompted entertainers at Thursday's Democratic fundraising concert in New York to attack Bush as a "cheap thug" and a killer. "Obviously some performers, in my judgment and John's, stepped over a line neither of us believes appropriate, but we can't control that," Kerry said. "On the other hand, we understand the anger, we understand the frustration." Edwards said scathing anti-Bush attacks such as the concert and Michael Moore's new film "Fahrenheit 9/11" reflect an "expression by folks with genuine feelings," adding, "Thank goodness in our country they have a right to express those feelings." Und ja, wir haben es mitbekommen: es dreht sich alles um "Werte" im demokratischen Wahlkampf, nicht unbedingt nur finanzielle natürlich.
