Kerry Ad: Defend America & Fight for Middle Class

New Kerry Ad: The Next President Must Do Both – Defend America and Fight for the Middle Class
For Immediate Release

Washington, DC - Calling attention to how George W. Bush’s wrong choices in Iraq have shortchanged priorities at home, the Kerry-Edwards campaign Sunday unveiled the new 30-second television ad “Defend America.”

In the ad, John Kerry pledges to be a president who defends America and fights for the middle class, taking America in a new direction after George Bush’s wrong choices in Iraq have cost us $200 billion and shortchanged America on everything from education to health care.

“George W. Bush’s wrong choices have led America in the wrong direction in Iraq and left America without the resources we need here at home,” said Kerry-Edwards campaign spokesperson Phil Singer. “John Kerry believes we can be strong in the world while we also make progress here at home. George W. Bush believes we have to choose one or the other. That’s a false choice.”

Script:

John Kerry: “200 billion dollars. That is what we are spending in Iraq because George Bush chose to go it alone. Now the president tells us we don’t have the resources to take care of health care and education here at home. That’s wrong. As president, I’ll stop at nothing to get the terrorists before they get us. But I’ll also fight to build a stronger middle class. That’s the difference in this election. I believe the next president must do both – defend America and fight for the middle class.”
