It's Come to This… Loser Dukakis Whines About "Racist" Ad From 20 Years Ago
Great. Democratic loser Dukakis comes back to battle the demons of his past.
Michael Dukakis inserted himself into the political fray today.
The former Massachusetts governor relives his 1988 nightmare.
The Politicker reported:
Former Gov. Michael Dukakis said Monday that John McCain’s presidential campaign is using the same race-based tactics that were used against him in his 1988 presidential run.
The Brookline Democrat was referring to a recent McCain ad that claimed Democratic nominee Barack Obama received economic advice from Franklin Raines, the former CEO of the recently bailed out mortgage lender Fannie Mae. The ad features images of Raines and Obama, two African Americans, and then an image of an elderly white woman.
Asked if he considered the ad to be in the same vein as the infamous ‘Willie Horton’ ad ad run by a third party group in support of George H.W. Bush in the 1988 presidential campaign, Dukakis told PolitickerMA.com: “Essentially, yes.”
Of course, this doesn’t explain the Fannie Mae ad with Jim Johnson that was also released last week, but who cares.
It’s all about race dambit.
So who’s up next?… Is Jimmy Carter going to take swipes at Reagan (or Jews)? Will John Kerry attack the 200 Swiftboat Vets… again?
Maybe they should all get together and do one big whiny ad?
Boy, that’d be a game changer.
