Bush to Sue FEC

I can't wait to see how the Dems spin this to make it sound like Bush is not doing anything to stop the attack ads.

It's pretty well documented that Karl Rove is a devious attack dog, so I don't doubt that there was some backroom encouragement of the Swift Boat Veterans for Political Gain, but now that the President has promised McCain that he'll sue to stop the 527 ads, it should be interesting to see how the Kerry campaign (and its supporters) react.

I'm sure the fact that the liberal 527s have outspent the conservative 527s by at least an order of magnitude has nothing to do with Bush's condemnation of them. And the fact that the lie-filled first SBVFTT ad has received national attention that has caused the race to swing a little back toward the Republicans is just a happy coincidence.

Point of information. Democrat groups have outspent Republicans by 4 to 1.

OK, so not an order of magnitude as I had been led to believe, but still a pretty big difference. It's no wonder Bush would seek to kill 527 groups - it's less skin off his nose than off Kerry's.
