|[Music] Dick Cheney:
have no financial interest in Halliburton of any kind and haven’t had
for over three years.
Male Announcer: The truth:
As vice president, Dick Cheney received $2 million from Halliburton.
Halliburton got billions in no bid contracts in Iraq.
Cheney got $2 million. What did we get?
A $200 billion dollar bill for Iraq. Lost jobs. Rising health care costs.
[Music upbeat] It's time for a new direction.
John Kerry. Stronger at home. Respected in the world.
John Kerry: I'm John Kerry and I approve this message.

"The fact is, Cheney doesn't gain a penny from Halliburton's contracts, and almost certainly won't lose even if Halliburton goes bankrupt...
"The ad claims Cheney got $2 million from Halliburton "as vice president," which is false. Actually, nearly $1.6 million of that was paid before Cheney took office. More importantly, all of it was earned before he was a candidate, when he was the company's chief executive."
