Bush calls Kerry heroic

Bush calls Kerry heroic

: Matt Lauer interviewed Bush today and in excerpts on the Nightly News, he is asked point blank whether Kerry’s military service was “heroic.” Bush said, yes, it was heroic.

“He’s proud of his service and I’m proud of mine,” Bush said.

Were they equally heroice? No, Bush said; Kerry want to Vietnam and that was more heroic than flying his plane. He said that if his unit had been called up to go to Vietnam, he would have gone, but he did not and Kerry did.

He said we should move on. I’ll second that.

(The interview will be on Today Monday.)
