Kennedy Mocks Kerry; Daley Tells Kerry to Stop the Hatred
NewsMax ^ | 5-26-04

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.

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.

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...

It's a B-757. It costs $25,000 per flight hour to operate it.

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.

He is never ever going to delay accepting the nomination. It would be an insanely bad idea for him.

In fact, even floating the possibility was an insanely bad idea. What an assclown.

"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."

Some are beginning to get it, but is it too late? I think so. They have already gone over the edge, and they can not back track now.

I hope some of those on this forum that have been demanding that President Bush go after Clinton, and the Democrats the same way they have gone after conservatives will begin to see the wisdom of taking the high road.

If, President Bush had been attacking the previous Administration all this time, and have gone on the offensive against Democrats (like many here would like), he would be in the gutter with the Democrats, and there would have been no public good will to protect him from the attack from the main stream media, the left, and Hollywood.

As it is, middle America is only seeing the "hate" from the left and they are turning from it.

Politics is all about religion. The religion of the left has nothing at all to do with "Love your neighbor as you love yourself" therefore they play by a whole different set of rules and get away with it.

We keep forgetting some important facts. Kerry isn't well liked among Democrats, for reasons ranging from his inability to hold firm to any position, to his arrogance. Second, Kerry isn't a very good campaigner, as he is demonstrating weekly, if not daily. Third, Kerry doesn't have a "plan" beyond bitching about Bush. Thats all he does, when you reread his comments. No ideas come from John Kerry, unless they are the ideas that failed the first few times around (like going to the UN). And finally, the Kerry Campaign to this point has lived "down" to the level Kerry was at prior to Dean's implosion.

There were very valid reasons for Kerry's collapse last fall, folks. All of them are now beginning to be highlighted, inadvertently by the candidate himself. Nobody within the Democratic Party actually has any respect for the Junior Senator from Taxachuettes.

This is why when you ask someone planning to vote for Kerry "Whats he done to get your support" they can't answer. It ALWAYS becomes a variation of "He's not Bush".

Thats not a viable strategy for winning the Whitehouse.

What nobody seems to mention and what is failing to get much play is....If Kerry doesn't accept the nomination and/or is not nominated, it puts him in the same boat as President Bush in a few of states...he won't be on the ballot unless the laws change.

As it stands today, in Illinois, candidates must certified by the end of August to get on the ballot. A measure to change the law sits in the Illinois Democrat controlled house, after being passed by the Rat controlled Senate.

My guess is, the House will wait till after the Rat convention to see what kind of action is taken on the measure. If Kerry stalls, the measure will pass with no problems. If Kerry accepts, the Rats will load up the measure with all kinds of amendments.

Have you seen the paint job on his new airplane?

If the paint job was paid for by his wife, then this would be a violation of campaign finance laws. The paint job on that plane probably cost about $10,000 which would be about $8,000 more than his wife would be allowed to contribute legally.

I seriously doubt Kerry used any campaign funds to paint the plane. So how did it get painted?

Where are McCain and Feingold when you need them?

I think thats becomming clear to even the most myopic among our liberal friends and neighbors.

Kerry's an "empty suit"...and they can thank Terry McAufille for his candidacy, which wouldn't have happened without Terry "Big Mac's" idea of frontloading the primaries.

Some days, I seriously thank God for those on the other side.....(grin)
