Medved just had a representative from the group on in the last hour.

Initially, I wasn't comfortable with these accusations. But the more that I hear of their story, the more interested I am in the details. If what they say is remotely true, then it is their duty - just as John Kerry felt that it was his duty to enlighten America about perceived atrocity - to bring this issue to the attention of the American people concerning a man that is being considered for the position of Commander and Chief of the United States Armed forces in a time of mortal conflict.

Additionally, I POSITIVELY love the change in tide here. Lefty callers were enraged with Medved and his guest, accusing them of fabricating lies and outrageous accustations about Kerry for political advantage.

HELLO!!! Care for a bit of tat with your tit, you suckling Moonbats! At least they didn't call Kerry, "Hitler."

Transcript begins (first time, so be gentle!)

I'm gonna skip anything not germane, btw.


Hannity had a caller who was critical of Sean's pro-war position hang on to talk to the Vets, but she hung up. Chicken.

Hannity introduces the guests by mentioning Kerry's attacks on the CIA, Kerry's 19 years in senate being ignored.

He plays the SBV ad.

Introduces guests from the SBVets group:

I'll bet that the President has so much junk to deal with from the media, that he/they don't want to look like endorsing these guys openly. It'll be used as just one more opportunity to accuse the President of using dirty, dirty tactics. Never Forget - there are TWO SETS OF RULES. (1) We put up with anything the Democrats/Liberals claim, intimate, otherwise accuse the Republicans of, and (2) we are to JUST SIT THERE and take it.

gilliam, that article mentions the Hoffman response but does not include the full text. They left out the most powerful quotes. The same is true for the other variants of that message. I still await the full press release.

Actually, my Screaming Eagle friend, if you read the transcript of Scott McClellan's gaggle today, the WH and the Campaign condemn all 527's. They don't mention the Swifties specifically at all. They surely did not condemn them.

Go to this thread about the WH press gaggle.

Be Seeing You,

I believe (if I am correct) the White House did not say specifically that they were flushing the Swift Boats group, but the CBS and other liberal mass media outlets spun it that way.

NOT TRUE.

White House basically is saying it's not them and aren't 527's a bitch.

I just took a check over on DU. They can't even approach wheather or not this is true or not. They just are in Drudge is a liar, Republicans are liars, Bush is a liar mode.

It's the truth that is important, not whom you want to win. However, I will say the press is already in what a terrible exploitive 527 ad mode. Funny, ads like this didn't bother them whem moveon.org was running them.

Its called denial. The main thing is the hardline Kerry-ites and hard line Bush-ites won't be convinced one way or another on this.

However, millions of SWING VOTERS, UNDECIDED will be pushed away from Senator Kerry as a viable alternative as Commander in Chief, due to this.

This will make a lot of liberals and anti-Americans very very mad and angry. If I were a swiftboatee at this time, I'd be carrying or at least get some bodyguards. Those liberal Democrats play for keeps, and they are not going to like losing the Presidency a second time around to Bush.

Hey. Long time no type!

Kerry 2004



I want to be the President,
Though all know I can’t lead.
I really want the power though,
It’s really what I need.



I’ll lie and cheat and fabricate,
I’ll flip and flop for sure.
The left’s so dumb they’ll vote for me,
For stupid, there’s no cure.



George Bush lied, I’ll chant and sing,
Though I know it’s not true.
I love America I’ll say,
Another lie for you.



I’ll back the UN’s global push,
No sovereignty for us.
The world rides free at our expense,
We’ll even buy the bus.



Let terror rain down on this land,
We really are to blame.
Oh yes, I fought in Viet Nam,
Four months, then home I came.



Three Purple Hearts for paper cuts,
Like some rite of passage.
You bet my name’s John Kerry,
And I approve this message.



Conspiracy Guy 7/30/2004





Changing with the Wind
Sung to Blowing in the Wind

How many times must he flip flop and flip,
Before he takes a firm stand?
How many lies must he tell about Nam,
Before we all call his hand?
How many times can he vote pro and con,
Before he is totally canned?
His answer my friend, is changing with the wind.
His answer is changing with the wind.
How many times will he say George Bush lied,
Before he tells us a fact?
How many times must I hear him drone on,
And still my ears stay intact?
How many deaths did he cause there in Nam,
With all his appeasements at home?
The answer and trend, John Kerry's not our friend,
The answer's John Kerry's not our friend.
How many terms could John Kerry serve,
Before America's gone?
How many days before he would cave in,
Afraid to protect our home?
How many weeks till he gave us away,
And let the UN take the throne?
The answer my friend, we'd twist in the wind,
The answer is we'd twist in the wind.

Conspiracy Guy 8/3/2004



First Down Kerry




This is how I flew above, the jungles there in Nam.
I held the skid and fired my gun, bam bam bam bam bam.
We approached the landing zone, I was the first man down.
“First Down Kerry”, I was called, Air Cav had come to town.
I designed the Huey, the Cobra, the Jolly Green.
Still I went to fight VC, I was a lean machine.
Swift boats, choppers, bombers too, ah yes I did it all.
For four months I was busy, but still I took the call.
I served with honor, brave, and true, saved so many men.
Viet Nam is safer now, I would go back again.

Transcript continues:

Roy Hoffman, Rear Admiral, US Navy

Van O'Dell, gunner's mate

Scott Sweat, webmaster Swiftvets.com

Hoffman: I was overall commander of swift boats....Kerry was in southernmost surveillance center...I knew him well because I operated very closely with him in many operations. Most of the operations were conducted with multiple votes. Van was in a prominent position up high on the boat manning the .50 cals.


Hannity: What did you see?

O'Dell:...Kerry lied about atrocities...the htings he wrote about were not true.

Hannity:(quotes Kerry on atrocities) Did you see any of the atrocities Kerry claims he saw?

O'Dell:...We did not commit atrocities. i never saw, heard or read any atrocities committed by swift boat sailors.

Hoffman (breaks in on Hannity): ...To this day, John Kerry has not testified to one specific atrocity.

O'Dell:...There were no specifics, nothing for the investigators to verify. Kerry's own testimony on his own atrocities were similarly vague.

I listened to Van O'Dell on Medved. The entire interview. He seems like a regular guy who felt he had to step forward.

If he's typical of this group, they're going to have a tough time discrediting them.

To the interview/callers - I thought he was well spoken, very clear, very specific. Like he said, just because some of those guys weren't on lurch's boat doesn't mean they didn't bunk together, and see each other in the water on a near daily basis.

I thought he was very credible.

Hannity is not doing a very good job of interviewing. He should have asked O'Dell about what actually happened when Kerry received his bronze star and PH. He is fixated on atrocities.

ACK, I'm not able to keep up, will have to be much more general--sorry I can't type that fast, maybe others can fill in the blanks.


Hoffman--talks about other officers witnessing the killing of livestock, something HE only heard about recently.

O'Dell--verifies the killing of the Vietnamese boy.

Hannity takes break--will ask why they decided to come out and talk about this.

I'm not listening to Hannity, but I was impressed with the ad.

It was simple, it was compelling, it was marvelously edited to have the maximum impact with the minimum of inflammatory emotion.

No yelling, no screaming, just the facts.

I thought it was the "best made" political ad of the season.

Why dont we ask the media to invite an equal number of "Band of Brothers" pro Kerry guys (that were on the boat with him as he says) and the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, for a once and for all debate, up jointly on the stage, live on national TV/Radio, with an impartial moderator, about this very hot/important issue and everyone's collective and individual NAM/KERRY memories.

That is one way to get the truth out.

Think the Kerry-ite Namvets would accept??

Yep. Go to "Press Gaggle by Scott McClellan (White House Response to Swift Boat group--CBS LIED AGAIN)" for details. The White House is not questioning the truth behind the SBVfT ad, but are smartly calling for an end to ALL 527 ads (e.g. moveon.org, etc.), so they're on record as being against these ads, give the SBVs a plug, and don't attack their credibility. Smart politics (even though Bush signed McCain-Feingold, thinking the SCOTUS would shoot it down, thereby helping to set this up). Scott McClellan kept bringing up the $62M of 527 ads attacking the president so far.
