DNC Demands Bush Drop 'President' from TV Ads
by Scott Ott

(2004-03-09) -- After slamming the Bush-Cheney 2004 re-election campaign for its use of 9/11 imagery in campaign ads, the Democrat National Committee (DNC) today again demanded that the ads be pulled, this time because they refer to Mr. Bush as "president."

Indeed, a review of the commercials shows that some do include the term "president" immediately before the surname "Bush." Juxtaposed with images of former Texas Governor George W. Bush, it seems clear that the spots do not refer to former President George H.W. Bush, but rather to his son, who did not actually win the popular vote in 2000.

"These ads are deeply cynical," said DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe. "Some families of the victims of the 2000 election have come to me, weeping because the commercials reminded them of that tragic time."
