This ad was run by George W. Bush in 2004 during his re-election year. The video doesn’t say anything about what George Bush will do for the country. Instead it bashes John Kerry. Specifically the video says that John Kerry voted for the Iraq war, and then said he was against it. Then he supported it again, and then he finally decided to oppose it. He also voted for the $87 billion for our troops, and then he said he was against it. He voted for educational reform, but said he was against it. Finally he said he was against increasing Medicare premiums even though he voted for it five times. John Kerry is wind surfing throughout the whole ad. He surfs a different direction every time he opposes something and every time he supports something.
This is a humorous video that probably was the most damaging ad against John Kerry for the 2004 election period. It didn’t give John Kerry a positive image at all. The ad gave the message to the American people that John Kerry cannot make up his mind on important issues. If he can’t make up his mind, why should people trust him to run our country? In the end this ad helped aid in Bush’s victory in the 2004 election.
