Radio Ad Aired in South Carolina

September 8, 2003

ANNOUNCER: Are you ready...

DEAN: I'm Howard Dean. It's time for the truth.

ANNOUNCER: ...for a presidential candidate who's not afraid to stand up to George Bush on the economy and jobs, even
if it means standing alone?

DEAN: You know, when you think about it, in the past two-and-a-half years, we've lost over two-and-a-half million jobs.
And has anyone really stood up against George Bush and his policies? Don't you think it's time someone did?

ANNOUNCER: ...for a Democrat who's willing to lay it on the line?

DEAN: I opposed the war with Iraq, when too many other Democrats supported it, because I want a foreign policy consistent with American values.

ANNOUNCER: Howard Dean, a governor who made sure nearly every child in his state has health insurance—a president who will make sure every American has health insurance too.

DEAN: I want to repeal the Bush tax cuts, so we can make health care available for every American.

ANNOUNCER: Log on to, or call 1-866-DEAN-4-USA. Learn more about Howard Dean, and join his people-powered grassroots campaign. Get involved. Join the campaign. Because the power is yours.

DEAN: I'm Howard Dean, and I approved this message because it's time to take our country back.

ANNOUNCER: Paid for by Dean for America.
