campaign. Bush skipped a required medical exam that cost him his
pilot's status in August of that year.

NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF
Mr. Bush signed up in May 1968 for a six-year commitment, justifying
the $1 million investment in training him as a pilot. But after
less than two years, Mr. Bush abruptly stopped flying, didn't
show up for his physical and asked to transfer to Alabama. He
never again flew a military plane.
Mr. Bush insists that after moving to Alabama in 1972, he served
out his obligation at Dannelly Air National Guard Base in Montgomery
(although he says he doesn't remember what he did there). The
only officer there who recalls Mr. Bush was produced by the White
House - he remembers Mr. Bush vividly, but at times when even
Mr. Bush acknowledges he wasn't there.
"woke up yesterday morning with yet another new position,
and this one's not even his own; it is that of his one-time rival,
Howard Dean," Bush told thousands of supporters Tuesday at
a rally in Lee's Summit, Mo., a suburb of Kansas City.
Bush said Kerry "even used the same words Howard Dean did
back when he supposedly disagreed with him. ... Senator Kerry
flip-flops. We were right to make America safer by removing Saddam
Hussein from power."
7, 2004 Fact Check
The Antiwar Candidate?
a campaign speech by President Bush in Lee's Summit, Mo. this
morning, Agence France-Presse quoted President Bush verbatim:
"When he got on the Democratic primary, he declared himself
the anti-war candidate. More recently he switched again, saying
he would have voted for the war, even knowing everything we know
today," Bush said.
Campaign Desk has noted
before, the hackneyed and discredited claim that Kerry ever
declared himself "the antiwar candidate" is based on
the following exchange between Kerry and Chris Matthews, that
aired on MSNBC's "Hardball" on January 6:
Do you think you belong in that category of candidates who more
or less are unhappy with this war? The way it's been fought? Along
with General Clark, along with Howard Dean, and not necessarily
in companionship politically on the issue of the war with people
like Lieberman, Edwards and Gephardt? Are you one of the anti-war
I am, yes, in the sense that I don't believe the president took
to us war as he should have, yes. Absolutely. Do I think this
president violated his promises to America? Yes, I do, Chris.
Was there a way to hold Saddam Hussein accountable? You bet there
was and we should have done it right.
Bush campaign recently ran an anti-Kerry ad that edited the exchange
to show Kerry answering Matthews by saying simply, "I am.
Yes." The ad so enraged Matthews that he asked Matthew Dowd
of the Bush campaign, on-air, to ask the president to repudiate
the charge: "Is the president going to keep saying that something
that was said on this show wasn't said?" Matthews asked.
"Would you like to have your sentences cut down like to a
third of their length and let people decide on the first three
or four words what you meant by the 20 words?"
