Bush ‘fesses up

So Bush regards the SBVT as “us”?

Just in case anyone had any doubts.

From the Bush interview in Time (per Drudge):

When asked whether there is anything in John Kerry’s Vietnam career that he thinks is relevant to this race, Bush tells TIME, “His service was honorable, as far as I’m concerned. This debate ought to be about who can lead the war on terror. And that’s where I’ll conduct it. I can understand why Senator Kerry is upset with us. I wasn’t so pleased with the ads that were run about me. And my call is get rid of them all, now.”

Us? US????? I thought those were supposed to be independent expenditures.

Kudos to Andrew Sullivan for catching this.
