Convention Quotables

Page 7

ABC's Jeff Greenfield, July 19: "Dukakis is basing his presidential campaign on the argument...a rational, competent manager is what this country needs. Friend, foe, or neutral almost all agree that this is the kind of presidency Michael Dukakis would bring to the White House."

CBS' Charles Kuralt on a liberal delegate to the Republican Convention, August 17: "He's against outlawing abortion, he's against President Reagan's Star Wars defense, he worries about the poor and homeless...Nine delegates to this convention describe themselves as liberals....Harold Fergiss: a lonely, rather brave figure out there on Canal Street. Symbol of the kind of Republican that once was, but almost isn't anymore."

ABC's Sam Donaldson on the Bush acceptance speech, August 18: "Bush distorted Dukakis' record liberally...He said Dukakis would deprive everyone of a handgun. Gun control Dukakis is for, but he's never said that. He suggested Dukakis was the one who didn't want voluntary prayer to be said in the school. But of course it's the Supreme Court of the United States who said that. He said Dukakis is preaching an America in decline, but in fact Dukakis has very carefully not said that. He said just the opposite."
