This is a screenshot from the Bush campaign's latest TV ad, which you can watch on their website. Now, I posted about how the Bush campaign is lying about what Kerry actually said the other day. Here's what he said:
We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance. As a former law-enforcement person, I know we're never going to end prostitution. We're never going to end illegal gambling. But we're going to reduce it, organized crime, to a level where it isn't on the rise. It isn't threatening people's lives every day, and fundamentally, it's something that you continue to fight, but it's not threatening the fabric of your life.
But you can see from this screenshot what they've done. It's not just that they've taken Kerry's words out of context. They've taken four words seemingly at random: "Terrorists," "Nusiance," "Gambling," and "Prositution." So that even though they actually read part of the what Kerry said, namely, "We have to get back to the place... where terrorists are... a nuisance," if you didn't listen to the quotation carefully, and you don't know the surrounding context, what you see on the screen is the important thing to you. You are left with the impression that Kerry said that terrorism is a nuisance, like prostitution or gambling. And of course he said nothing of the sort.
Typical lying republicans.
