A simple strategy note to the Kerry campaign:
If President Bush is going to try to pose as an advocate of campaign finance reform to dodge the Swift Boat issue, there’s a really, really, really easy rejoinder to this one: mockery.
Don’t get bogged down on the details. Just mockery. Full stop.
George W. Bush, Mr. Campaign Finance Reform? Please … A laugh and a smile. Simple as that.
His credibility on the issue is zero. Voters know it.
Let’s try being smart on this one, okay? Just once?
