Why is the Vice-President attacking the President's use of words?

John Kerry on August 5:

'I believe I can fight a more effective, more thoughtful, more strategic, more proactive, more sensitive war on terror that reaches out to other nations and brings them to our side and lives up to American values in history. I lay out a strategy to strengthen our military, to build and lead strong alliances and reform our intelligence system. I set out a path to win the peace in Iraq and to get the terrorists wherever they may be before they get us.' (Kerry, 8/5/04)

President Bush in 2001:

'We help fulfill that promise not by lecturing the world, but by leading it. Precisely because America is powerful, we must be sensitive about expressing our power and influence. Our goal is to patiently build the momentum of freedom, not create resentment for America itself. We pursue our goals, we will listen to others. (Bush Remarks at USS Regan Ceremony, 3/4/01)

President Bush last week:

'Now, in terms of the balance between running down intelligence and bringing people to justice obviously is -- we need to be very sensitive on that.' (Bush Delivers Remarks at the Unity, Journalists of Color Conference, 8/6/04)

Vice President Cheney today:

'Senator Kerry has also said that if he were in charge he would fight a 'more sensitive' war on terror. America has been in too many wars for any of our wishes, but not a one of them was won by being."
