(( "THE CLINTON AD. JUST DOESN'T GET IT AND THAT'S WHY THEY'VE GOT TO GO.!"
Hoping Hmerica buys that message, Bob Dole now sets off on a two and half month journey to gain the Whitehouse.
Last night he delivered an hour long message filled with the economic blueprint and the idea he says this country needs to move on successfully into the 21st century. ((BOB DOLE: I AM HERE TO SAY TO AMERICA, DO NOT ABANDON THE GREAT TRADITIONS THAT STRETCH TO THE DAWN OF OUR HISTORY, DO NOT TOPPLE THE PILLARS OF THOSE BELIEFS,-GOD FAMILY HONOR DUTY COUNTRY, THAT HAVE BROUGHT US THROUGH TIME AND TIME AGAIN.))
Dole made many aggressive references to President Clinton and his administration. ((IT IS DEMEANING TO THE NATION THAT WITHIN THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION A CORPS OF ELITE WHO NEVER GREW UP, NEVER DID ANYTHING REAL, NEVER SARIFICED, NEVER SUFFERED, AND NEVER LEARNED, SHOULD HAVE THE POWER TO FUND WITH YOUR EARNINGS THEIR DUBIOUS, SELF SERVING SCHEMES.))
For his part, Jack Kemp did not upstage dole. he tried to define the Republican party as one of inclusion. ((JACK KEMP: WE MAY NOT GET EVERY VOTE.. IN WORD AND ACTION WE WILL REPRESENT OUR ENTIRE AMERICAN FAMILY...))
So with the tone set, and four days of what the Republicans believe was good publicity here in San Diego, the only thing left was the celebration. ((Infused with 62 million dollars of taxpayer money, Bob Dole now heads off to four states carried by Clinton four years ago.
41 million dollars of that money is earmarked for television ads.
