Vultures Row: Pot Calling Kettle; Your Black.

Pot Calling Kettle; Your Black.


Vulture 6: O.K. I have to accept that kedwards will say anything at all to get elected. Today Edwards called the kettle black (No Omarosa, that is not a racial comment) when he said that Bush is using a national tragedy for personal gain. Um, John, in case no one has told you, you’re a TRIAL LAWYER, (in my opinion) a blood sucking leach that uses peoples personal tragedies for PERSONAL PROFIT. I think it takes unmitigated gall to state this just days after promising cripples that John Kerry will make them walk again. We are closer to the magma…

Edwards accuses Bush of exploiting 2001 terrorist attacks
Associated Press

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Sen. John Edwards accused President Bush on Monday of "exploiting a national tragedy for personal gain" in a blistering speech preceding Bush's own address about terrorism in a state in the shadow of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

"George Bush today is making one last stand to con the American people into believing that he is the only one who can fight and win the war on terrorism," the Democratic vice presidential nominee said. "John Kerry defended this country as a young man. He will defend this country as president of the United States."

On a day that promised to be dominated by talk of terrorism, the North Carolina senator sought to put Bush on the defensive as the president headed into what his aides called a major speech on terrorism in southern New Jersey.

Edwards, speaking at a seaside park in this battleground state, argued that Bush "claims steady leadership but offers a steady stream of failure." He accused the president of "creating a new haven for terrorists" and assailed him for failing to capture the mastermind of the attacks, Osama bin Laden.

"He will fail in the war against terrorism because he does not know how to lead," Edwards said of Bush.
