Bush comment draws Kennedy ire

Oct. 27, 2004 at 5:24 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg is unhappy over President George W. Bush referring to her father in a campaign speech earlier this week.

President John F. Kennedy's daughter said in a news release Wednesday "It's hard for me to listen to President Bush invoking my father's memory to attack John Kerry. Sen. Kerry has demonstrated his courage and commitment to a stronger America throughout his career."

Schlossberg's statement was put out by the Democratic National Committee.

Bush had commented favorably on the commitment and resolve shown by Kennedy and predecessors Harry Truman and Franklin Roosevelt in time of war, contrasting it with what he called Kerry's "cut-and-run" behavior in time of crisis and decision.

"President Kennedy inspired and united the country and so will John Kerry," Schlossberg said. "President Bush is doing just the opposite. All of us who revere the strength and resolve of President Kennedy will be supporting John Kerry on Election Day."
