KERRY: "I've been too busy for Terror briefing!"
WMCA-NY ^ | 7.9.2004

Posted on 07/09/2004 7:16:43 AM PDT by KMC1

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...

Good Point. You know CNN would never allow it.

I think it's true that they can't use an actual voice clip from CNN without permission, but I think they could quote from the interview, and just cite where the interview took place. IIRC.

Yes they will. When Bush starts talking about how after he wins on November 3 he is going to screw to the wall everyone that stabbed him including CNN, the dialogue will change from "No this is propoerty of CNN" to "Sure Mr. Rove, where do you want the tape sent?"

"This is not good for Kerry "

May be wishful thinking.

Most likely, it won't matter, unless the Washington Post; NYT's et al,feature the truth of these Libs; and of course, they are 'it'; so that won't happen.

Think I will copy these picts and keep them in my car; place/leave them in appropriate places. . .

A picture is worth a thousand words and two, even better.

What with squeezing Edwards' butt and doing his chores to earn his allowance from Theresa, there's just no time for things like voting in the Senate and being briefed on national security.

John Kerry is only displaying his version of Henry David Thoreau at Walden Pond. And of course, in that magical mirror of history, his running mate John Edwards reprises the silver oratory of William Jennings Bryan.

I recall him also saying that one of the very, very, first things he would do as Pres, would be to authorize embryonic stem cell research. He even managed to say it with passion.

Odd thoughts for a guy who believes life begins at conception.

Oh, I know he can quote freely, I just think it will be more effective to use the actual video...visualizing it is more damning than just a quote.

"I expect to hear it on all the radio talk shows."

Given all the criticisims re our 'security prepraredness', have wondered how it is, that Kerry's role on National Security has never come in to play.

It should be played in a Bush/Cheney commerical. Terrorism goes to the heart of this election ... and Kerry is hanging out trading sexual innuendos with Whoopi Goldberg!

Nah, Johnnie Boy has been too busy wearing spandex and riding his "man of the people" custom bike.
