This is great. Gary Trudeau is a master, this is better than the recall strip for Californians.

...And now he is stepping up from the drawing board to take the challenge more directly to the president. He is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who will verify Mr Bush's account of his military service in Alabama in the early 70s. ...

Poll: Bush Winning Battle of Vietnam

A poll released Friday by the University of Pennsylvania's National Annenberg Election Survey shows that in the battle between President Bush and John Kerry over each other's Vietnam War records, Bush is winning - without even so much as firing a shot.

Most Americans told Annenberg that the 30-year-old war wasn't among their top priorities.

But for those who cared, more were offended by Kerry's anti-war protests while paired up with the likes of "Hanoi" Jane Fonda than were concerned about what Bush did or didn't do while serving in the National Guard.

The survey found that overall, 44 percent of Americans disapproved of Kerry's anti-war activities, with 40 percent saying they approved, according to the Associated Press. Seventeen percent of those surveyed both disapproved of Kerry's conduct and said it would matter "a great deal" toward determining how they would vote.

Meanwhile, 62 percent of Americans felt Bush had fulfilled his obligations in the Texas Air National Guard, while 38 percent said he had not. But only 12 percent of Americans who said Bush hadn't fulfilled his obligations said it would matter "a great deal" in deciding their votes.

In most cases, those who were deeply troubled by either Bush or Kerry's Vietnam record had already decided to back the other candidate.

Still, a poll showing that the Massachusetts Democrat is more vulnerable on the Vietnam issue has to be particularly good news for Bush's political team, especially since the Democrat-leaning press has had the White House on the defensive for the last three weeks over questions about Bush's Guard service.

Meanwhile, GOP officials has been completely mum on Kerry's Fonda connection, as well as his damning 1971 testimony before the Senate where he portrayed his brother Vietnam veterans as war criminals. In fact, but for talk radio and the Internet, the facts on Kerry's anti-war antics would have gone mostly uncovered by the mainstream press.

Another problem for Kerry: While the controversy over Bush's Guard service has largely been exhausted, new revelations from his anti-war past keep dribbling out.

On Sunday, for instance, Kerry biographer Douglas Brinkley contended that the leading Democrat's activity with the radical leftist group Vietnam Veterans Against the War was an attempt by the future presidential candidate to build a legal case against his own country.

"He was really trying to get an indictment going against the U.S. government - for misadventures in Vietnam, or, one might say, war crimes," Brinkley told Newsday.

On Saturday, Kerry challenged Bush to have a national debate on their respective Vietnam War records. But if the Annenberg survey is any indication, the best response for the White House may just be: Bring it on!

Annenberg surveyed 1,749 Americans Feb. 11-19. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Why do you say "dumocrats?"

I don't understand the value of such a blanket insult.

All you have proven is that you are desparate to believe that Bush's service has been verified. The only witness that I have heard "verified" Bush's presense <i>months before he was even in the state. Don't you find that odd? And there was a similar $3500 reward offered in 2000 by a veterans group that <i>nobody claimed</i>. Don't you find that odd? Do you find it odd that you don't hear these details from the male authority figure that tells you what to think?

You are right about one thing. You have to stoop pretty low to engage Bush.

Kind of interesting that the story is from a .uk site, and still more interesting that it is from a bastion of the liberal media.

I wondered what the catch was, and I believe I've found it:
"If we think you're a possible winner, we'll get back to you pronto. "

"If WE think you're a POSSIBLE winner, we'll get back to you PRONTO."

Yeah, right, and if 1000 people respond complete with their proof of enlistment and photos and such you can fairly well be guaranteed that this little story will go the way of most cartoonists with an agenda and be redirected into obscurity along the lines of "we know of nobody who has come foreward and offered what we feel is sufficient proof that they or Mr. Bush was ever there".

Yep, I can hear it all already.

Thanks for playing, come again soon.

I've heard some lame excuses before, but these take the cake. The only way that george will be able to get some proof, is to buy it.
Everybody knows that george was a "candy ass" then, and now.

Something you missed: <i>George W. Bush doesn't have an account of his military service in Alabamba.</i> He simply has the vaugue assertion that he "served" and the spurious claim that because he was honorably discharged, he must have served.

The question is WHY was he honorably discharged.
His NAME is why.

Turns out the guy said he was with him all summer, but Bush wasn't transfered there until September. The guy was lying.

Anybody seen Bill105 and Live Steam together?

I don't mean in the biblical sense, though that's certainly all right with me if you want to.
You guys are flailing with this issue, though. It may not matter to voters--it doesn't even much matter to me, except as further evidence of Bush lying--but so far only one pilot claims to remember serving with Bush. By comparison, a story and picture of me in the Army in an 8,000-circulation company newsletter a few years ago brought 11 letters from people I'd known in training or in Vietnam, and an unidentifed 1942 picture of my father in Sail magazine last August brought three contacts from guys who served with him SIXTY YEARS AGO.
Bush is from one of the most prominent families in America, and doubts about his military service have made headlines internationally, but only ONE guy has stepped up? Right....
