Groups launch new ads only hours after Supreme Court vacancy announced. Each side portrays the other as extreme, even before a nominee is named.
Bush says “progress is uneven” in Iraq, but accentuates positive evidence and mostly ignores the negative.
Pro-Bush group’s ad faults Democrats for criticisms they haven’t yet made, about a Supreme Court nominee who hasn’t been named, to a vacancy that doesn’t yet exist.
The ad is accurate. But it leaves out details on how Kerry would pay for his proposal, and what it might cost.
