NEW YORK - In a bizarre twist of campaign history, John Kerry made the claim on Larry King Live that he had been "too busy" to stay up to date on National Security Briefings that had been offered him by the Bush Administration.
The stunning admission came last night on CNN.
KING: News of the day, Tom Ridge warned today about al Qaeda plans of a large-scale attack on the United States...What's your reaction?
KERRY: Well, I haven't been briefed yet, Larry. They have offered to brief me. I just haven't had time.
It should be pointed out that immediately following the interview with Larry King, Kerry headed straight to an evening concert fund raiser...

This is not good for Kerry
This man makes my blood boil. He would rather hob nob with Larry King and the rest of the Hollywood morons than be bothered about our national security.
I see a great Bush/Cheney ad in our future.
I guess it's better to party and get some head (ala Bubba/Lewinsky) vice care a whit about National Security. It's more FUN to bash BUSH than be an ADULT LEADER and actually be RESPONSIBLE.
This shows exactly where his priorities lie.
Sheesh. Too busy for a national security briefing?! Too busy??!!
Why am I not surprised. Hell, he misses 83% of his votes in the Senate too.
I expect to hear it on all the radio talk shows.
They usually take their cue from Drudge.
Doesn't this remind you an awful lot of Clinton? Busy, busy, busy with Hollywood friends but just didn't have the time to meet with his CIA Director.
This person want be President of your great country. No, I want America to go with George Bush, America strong is good. That person do not care for America
Yes it does and hopefully it will remind the American voters of the same.
WE CANNOT afford to have this man in office. I have never felt so strongly about a presidential race as I do this one. John Kerry is downright scary!!
You are a smart Pole.
Too busy for terror briefing to be president and too busy to vote at his current job as Senator.
Too bad Bush wont be able to use that in his commercials without consent by CNN...
Not only does it speak for political stupidity, but also to the "arrogance" thing. Sheesh. I didn't see it--could it be used as a sound bite in a campaign ad?
