  •  Lenny, do you remember the 2004 campaign? (1+ / 0-)

    Isn't your advice, and your reasoning, pretty similar to the Kerry campaign's initial non-response to the swift boat attacks?

    •  no, it's not (0+ / 0-)

      because the Swiftboaters had not already had a full committee "investigation" for months and months that blabbered every single day and impressed nobody.

      Any new GOP "investigation" will do no better than the last one did--unless WE give it a reason to.

      And now we have.

      In the end, reality always wins.

      •  Actually, that's not true. John Kerry's war record (1+ / 0-)

        and post-war record had been a political football for decades before 2004. The throwing of the medals - who's medals were they?!? - and other elements of the attack had been dragged into campaigns before.

        I don't know what could be making you so confident that old attacks can't get new life.
