war of words

Posted: November 1, 2006 in Our World, US

between these two, Bush & Kerry (former & future candidate for the presidency seat). It’s hilarious really. Below is an article taken from Yahoo! News.

A blazing row has erupted between Republicans and Democrats in the run-up to the American mid-term elections. George Bush’s administration has been trading insults with Senator John Kerry. The President accused his opponent of saying US troops in Iraq were stupid, while Mr Kerry called Mr Bush’s men hacks who were “willing to lie”.

The war of words came after Kerry told a group of students those who do not work at school “get stuck in Iraq”.

Mr Bush, campaigning in Georgia, said Kerry’s statement was “insulting” and “shameful”.

“The members of the United States military are plenty smart, and they are plenty brave, and the senator from Massachusetts owes them an apology,” he said.

Mr Kerry, who is considering another run for the White House in 2008, angrily fired back with a statement that called Republicans “assorted right-wing nut jobs”.

Obviously, I don’t agree with both, Kerry stating that those who don’t do well will end up in the army. Don’t know if he was misquoted here. But, there are a number of them with degrees in the service! Not all, but we can’t generalize here.

Bush, let’s not start, as there will be no end to it!
