‘Rather Compelling’:

In the same interview, former President Bush declined to condemn Swift Boat Veterans for Truth television advertisements that have attacked Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry for his war record and anti-Vietnam War activities.

“I haven’t seen the ads,” said the senior Bush. “. . . I must say, what I saw of these individuals–and there are quite a few of them–was rather compelling, but then people have gone and said, well, they weren’t telling the truth. I have great confidence in Bob Dole. I don’t think he’d be out there just smearing John Kerry. I think he was concerned about what he actually saw with his own eyes and what he actually heard with his own ears. So I’m conflicted on it.”
