She also said that the Dems have been going lightly lately in terms of attacking Bush on his National Guard record.

I don't think they have at all. A lot of the speakers at the DNC have mentioned that Kerry volunteered to go to VN. The contrast they are making is obvious. And IIRC, he only "volunteered" to go to VN after he found out he couldn't avoid it.

I would agree with her......there is nothing I find in the docs that really screams expose to write about.

Nevertheless, I think this is worthy. The swiftvets stuff IS worthy of reporting....very damning stuff.

Somebody needs to ask Kerry who put him in for his medals.

This type of voter doesn't give a tinker's damn about honor, or lack thereof, in their political frontmen.

But as we all know, elections these days are won by the registered Independent voters who tend to be more conservative than liberal. And the more voters learn about Ketchup the less they like him.

Keep the faith and spread the word!
Ketchup is a lying traitor! And that's the bottom line!!!

Semper Fi,

Funny. That is how I feel about Sean Hannity. Laura is funnier. She had Sean on the other day and was dogging the hell out of him. She is not as caustic as Ann, but she is sarcastic and funny.

To hell with the media Bush should be nailing Kerry's hide to the wall. They attacked Bush's honorable Guard service and blamed him for the James Byrd death. The Rats play dirty politics Rove better have come up with something...

Does one get a purple heart for each injury?

Answer: NO, one receives a PH for each encounter with the enemy in which the combatant was wounded.

In fact from what we know, the first PH was bogus. Kerry showed up in front of his C.O. "requesting" a PH for a scratch on his forearm. His C.O. asked Kerry's crew members if they had encountered any enemy that day and the response was "no". Kerry's C.O. laughed off the request. Now how Kerry subsequently received the PH is still a mystery. But no one and I repeat no one that we know of besides Kerry has ever "requested" a Purple Heart!!!

Why aren`t the Repubs all over this?

My guess is that most GOP'ers including W never even made it to Nam so I would surmise that this is one pot of manure that they really don't want to stir up. LOL

Semper Fi,
Kelly

Agree. The Dems have been making subtle and not so subtle digs about GWB's National Guard service. I wouldn't be surprised to hear Kerry himself make some reference to it using his Vietnam service. The Dems see this as a winner and also a good offensive tactic to put GWB on the defensive. McAwful has been using it since January at least.

It's a talk radio thing, she hasn't been at it long enough to know when to shut up and when not to. She's good, she will get it eventually--long run she is a super-star.

Most people vote for Democrats for what money can be forcefully taken away from others and given to them, directly or indirectly. This type of voter doesn't give a tinker's damn about honor, or lack thereof, in their political frontmen.

Sadly, I agree. Envy, avarice, anger ... three of the Seven Deadly Sins that motivate Democrats to vote Democrat.

I hope so. Sean Hannity still hasn't figured it out.

I would disagree. He went basically into the belly of the beast this week. He set up a remote right at the rats convention. Then he proceeded to tear them apart one after the other, the Rev. Jax,Lanny Davis, to several rat radio hosts and many others. He was and is fearsome on the air. And on t.v. he overcame technical difficulties that would scare the you no what out of an ordinary host. He is better than good IMHO.

We will agree to disagree. Hannity is an intellectual lightweight.

That's the thing about talk radio if you broadcast at more than about the second year of college level you loose your audience anyway, but he is good and does lots of little inside radio stuff that makes a huge difference.

The Navy should take their Silver Star back (or whatever he got for this rescue)

Kerry got a Bronze Star with "V" (for valor) for that.

However, other Navy Personnel have said that he shouldn't have received anything. As 'Skipper' it was his duty to go back for anyone blown off his boat as Rassmussen was, or anyone who otherwise went overboard. And to not go back would have been Dereliction of Duty.

Which do you think had the larger audience...

Collectively, we have the largest audience. It's made up of our families, friends, and anyone else we know who's willing to listen. The advantage we have is that our audience gets to see us "up close and personal". Don't discount the grassroots. I think kerry has.

Elder said he simply went back and plucked him out of the water. He was not under enemy fire.

Unfortunately, this happens way too often with too many great guests and too many talk show hosts. Let the guest address the issue you invited them on to discuss!

No time to read now. WABC has Laura delayed at 7 or 8, I think.

According to Elder, on that same mission when Rassmussen fell off the Kerry boat, someone else fell off another boat on the mission. That person was picked up like Rassmussen, but no medal was awarded. According to Elder, there was no hostile fire at the time of the rescues.

Kelly, you may be correct, but I'm not entirely convinced. You are absolutely correct about the independent, "swing" voter. But, are they conservative? I wouldn't take a firm stand either way, but it seems to me as if they are whores as much as most of the Democrat base and some of the Republican base.

After all, anyone who didn't know for whom to vote 60 days ago is either (1) too stupid and uninformed to be allowed to vote--a probable majority, or (2) looking for the candidate who will perform the largest buyout.

I hope you are correct, but I'm still cynical.
