The John Kerry ad "Issues" accuses President Bush of smearing Kerry's campaign. The ad is aired after the Swift Boat Veterans run two ads accusing Kerry of betraying fellow veterans and lying to get medals for his service in Vietnam. The ad also recalls John McCain's issues with fringe veterans and George Bush when he was running for Republican presidential nominee in 2000.
