Skip to comments.John Kerry Complains That Obama Is Being "Swiftboated"
Posted on 03/30/2012 8:50:42 AM PDT by Sasparilla
Another request for donations arrived in the inbox today. The messages supposedly are from any of a number of Obama people such as Michelle, Joe Biden, or the campaign manager.
John Kerry is the author of the latest solicitation complaining that Bob Perry, who contributed to the organization, "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth," that helped expose the more than lackluster Viet Nam "Service" of John Kerry, just donated $3 Million to the Republicans.
He critically says, "One man. Three million dollars. And that's just the start." But, a million from Bill Maher is no problem.
Could this be because Obama's fundraising is way down? The DNC raised 45 million in February, and it isn't known how it will be split among all candidates. Obama himself raised about 34 million dollars in February compared to 55 million in 2008. His super PAC Priorities USA Action spent $684,489 against Mitt Romney, but only took in $59,000 in January. Half as many big donors are writing him checks than at this point in 2008.
He is making an assertive effort to get $2 and $3 donations. Emails requesting that amount come one or two times a day. And, he has just unleashed a massive text message contribution solicitation where the text message says, Support Pres Obama in less than a minute using our new secure system. Just reply with the amount you want to give and well charge your saved credit card.
Some, like Bruce Springsteen, are complaining that Obama has acted too slowly in job creation, and that he hasn't stopped foreclosures "somehow." He also says that he is "too friendly" to corporations. Obama held a $38,000 a plate fundraiser for Wall Street on March first.
Other big Democrat pocketbooks are dropping out. Some wealthy liberals and Wall Street executives...

So now Kerry is complaining that the truth is being told about Obama now too?
Hopefully, Kerry is right for once in his life. Obama certainly needs a good Swiftboat treatment.
If it brings out the truth about Obama, so what?
I have this funny feeling that Nobambi is going to pull some $hit whether he wins or loses in November. The Homeland Security is stocking up with enough bullets to shoot each of us 8 times, and the pencil-necked muslim in our White House has already put into law an executive order which gives him and his regime total power over all means of production and livelihoods of each of us Americans.
Some kind of huge disaster awaits us this coming fall, and this a$$hole is going to pull something out of his butt that we’re not quite ready for.
“Telling the TRUTH about a Democrat”
A bunch of heroes are attacking Obama on his lies and incompetency to lead?
If by “swiftboated” he means an attempt to shine some sunshine on a murky, nefarious, and probably made-up past, then, yes, he is being swiftboated.
Impossible!! “O” never served!
You mean like removing the original Constitution from it's sealed display case, and replacing it with the Communist Manifesto?
It was never enough. He should have been charged with outright treason. During wartime, that is a shooting offense...as in firing squad.
One can only be “swiftboated” if they lie about their past, their accomplishments, continually harp on how great they are, all the while blaming all accused faults on their precessors... Oh! Wait.........
Now is the time to ask your service man or woman not to fire on us, if given an order to do so.
Our alternatives are rapidly being narrowed down to “vote Romney” or “Obama Wins Re-Election”.
How the heck do th ey keep doing this to us?
Friends running against friends..splits the vote. It happens in every challenged district..in every state, in all the primaries every single cycle. It's a simple almost fail-safe formula.
Even when it obvious..like when Santorum campaigned for Romney in '08..people just do not want to believe it, so the Country will get what it deserves, a socialist fascist/leash...again, and again and again.
Hey Senator frog-boy...
(apols to French citizens & all species of amphibians)
... not true.
He is currently the Commander in Chief for something he knows NOTHING about. Good news is he started at the top , now he is working his way down, kinda like “leading from behind” where the opposite is the springboard... the springboard to no where.
Hopefully we will see him in his next role, KP duty, better yet, jail for treason.
Bruce Springsteen made some very good music a long time ago.
Beyond that NOTHING good can be said for him.
He needs to shut his pie hole and retire.
The only difficulty he ever experienced was to get himself born...and that effort was only as strenuous for him as it ever is for anyone else!
From that point on, it has been handouts and consideration from others .... he isn't even his own person in any sense of the word!! Actual effort, struggle and achievement based on merit are foreign concepts to him, I am sure.
Go entertain yourself, Lurch.
Kerry has stumbled into a correct analysis. The American People are putting Truth to the fraud that Obama has been peddling. That is what it means to be Swiftboated.
