Skip to comments.Kennedy Mocks Kerry; Daley Tells Kerry to Stop the Hatred
Posted on 05/26/2004 7:38:26 AM PDT by jmstein7
You know that Sen. John Kerry is in trouble when even his close ally Sen. Teddy Kennedy is ridiculing him.
Democrats are so furious over Kerry's waffling about whether to delay accepting the party's presidential nomination that "Kennedy privately mocked Kerry at a party fund-raising event this week for failing to consult him, pretending to take orders from the junior senator over the phone," the Boston Herald reported today.
Massachusetts' senior U.S. senator pretended to be on the phone with his protege and said, "Yes, John. Whatever you say, John," one eyewitness revealed.
One prominent Democrat lawmaker told the Herald: "People are kicking the [expletive] out of Kerry over this. I can't find anybody who thinks this is a good idea."
Daley to Kerry: Stop the Hatred
And you know Kerry is in trouble when a hard-core Democrat pol tells him to stop being so hateful and disrespectful.
Earlier in the presidential campaign, Kerry made a comment to some union employees that the Bush administration was a bunch of corrupt liars.
Oops! He's done it again.
Kerry, in what he supposedly thought was an off-the-record conversation with reporters, said after President Bush's fall from his bike last weekend, "Did the training wheels fall off?"
Five-term Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, who had a similar injury years ago, jabbed Kerry for his sneering attitude toward the president.
Daley reminded his party's nominee-to-be: "When someone falls ... you should not wish ill upon anyone. It's not right. ... You just don't do that. Let's have some respect for one another."
President Bush, of course, made no ugly comments after Kerry recently suffered falls while bicycling and while snowboarding.
"To Daley, Kerry's remark symbolized a hate-filled brand of politics the mayor has long despised," the Chicago Sun-Times reported today.
Hizzoner said: "The thing I worry about in politics is all of these people hating one another: 'I hate Kerry', 'I hate Bush.' I wish the former presidents - Carter and Ford and Clinton and Bush - would all get up and tell people, 'You may support candidates, but don't hate the other candidate.'
"You see too much hate. And I'll tell you one thing - hate will turn on people. ... When hate gets in politics, it's a very, very dangerous aspect."
No word as yet on whether Democrats around the country, including the hateful members of groups such as Moveon.org, have hung their heads in shame.
But seriously folks...........JfK is in TROUBLE!
Looks like they're making room for Hitlery. There is a reason (much more than just financial) that Kerry is saying he may not accept the nomination at the Dem's convention this summer.
Ted kennedy. Is he still alive? Oh, yeah, I remember now, the doctors told him it would take at least three years before his 'flesh eating disease' finally got to something vital.
Daley is a bums' bum. In the dead of night he sent bulldozers in to tear-up the runway ay Chicago's Meigs Field. He wanted to close it so he could -- ready? -- build a park there dedicated to himself. When he lost in court, he simply destroyed the airport at night under the lie of "protecting Chicago from the terrorism threat from Piper Cubs."
Daley is everything wrong with rancid big-city liberalism.
The big cities like Chicago are Liberalism's last polluted gasp, and they are planning to take as many of us as they can with them as they go down.
I seriously question that John F'ing Kerry is going to make it to the Demo convention in Boston as their nominee. I am half expecting a NJ "Torch" effect to happen soon.
Have you seen the paint job on his new airplane? On the side it says "John Kerry, President" How's that for arrogance!
Kerry may not get a chance to accept a nomination from the Demo Convention. Maybe we should start an online political pot for when Kerry officially goes down...
Is that an Airbus or a Boeing? Wonder how many gallons of jet fuel it gets per mile...
It's a B-757. It costs $25,000 per flight hour to operate it.
Without the 'FOR' in John Kerry President, that plane is illegal.
The FEC is very serious about that sort of thing.
OMG......the guy is delusional.
Since when? Wasn't it Daley that was campaign manager to Algore in the last Presidential election? I seem to remember a lot of "hate-filled" politics courtesy of Mr. Daley..........
In terms of policy and practice, you're correct. But he's also a very successful politician, which means that he knows what works long-term.
In that vein, he happens to be right about the poison of "hate-filled politics." It can work for a particular issue. But as we've seen -- most obviously among Democrats, but also in politics in general -- a reliance on it requires a continual escalation, until there's nothing left but venom and jockeying for spin-control opportunities. There's no room for reasonable discourse, which means that it's impossible to do the right thing.
No wonder the cost of oil has gone up with him using this guzzler!!! I believe it's a Boeing 757.
In fact, even floating the possibility was an insanely bad idea. What an assclown.
Holy Cow! He's gone MAD!
LOL! THAT'S more like it....
