COMMAND CONFIDENCE Kerry staff: "Unfit not a problem, media is committed to seeing us win")

Posted on 08/10/2004 3:12:23 AM PDT by Liz

According to a Kerry campaign source, senior campaign advisers tasked two Washington-based campaign staffers to vet the recently published Unfit for Command.

"The purpose was to compare what that book had with what we had on file from Senator Kerry," says the campaign source, who said that the research project developed more than 75 instances where Kerry's recollections, previous remarks, or writings conflicted with the book's reporting.

"We took some of the most glaring examples, like the Christmas in Cambodia story, and presented them to senior staff, and we assume that those things were put in front of Senator Kerry," says the source. "We haven't heard a word about it. All we were told is that it was being taken care of."

The campaign source said that the book was not considered a "serious" problem for the campaign, because, "the media wouldn't have the nerve to come at us with this kind of stuff," says the source.

"The senior staff believes the media is committed to seeing us win this thing, and that the convention inoculated us from these kinds of stories. The senior guys really think we don't have a problem here."

Hey Dio - I'll post the list of struggles, but the DNC platform is nearly impossible to break down into tabular format - it's 41 pages long in .pdf format.....It requires one to actually read the damned POS at the viewer's risk to their mental health. I'm sure that there is someone out here that has a different version broken down into nice "soundbites", but it isn't me.

I'll FReepmail you the links and the list of struggles, as well as post them here in a few minutes.

It does indeed need to be widely pinged. The chutzpah is breathtaking.

Kerry ia beginning to look more and more like CANDIDATE Clinton.....Clinton was the Energizer Bunny.....kept going and going and going .....right into the WH.

GWB has got to stop himself from looking like a "candidate desperate for votes". He's the president of the USA and he must consider Kerry as the pretender to the office.

This is no joke. The so called "Mainstream Media" are die hard liberals and they control 90% of the information and propaganda put out to the public. It is almost a Star Chamber.
What is left is under a vicious attack. The Democrats under the heading of Congress,John Conyers and 4 others sent FOX and veiled threat and accused them of portraying George Bush in to favorable of a light.
Out nation is under assault by the Democrats and the Terrorist and I believe the Democrats are more overall detrimental to our well being because the control the Judicial System through Liberal Lawyers.
America is headed toward a "Dictatorship" if we are not careful and it is closer than most people think.
The upcoming election is strictly about the Supreme Court and everything else is secondary over the long haul!

You must recognize that most of us have socks that are older than the "pups" who made those statements. You can be assured that they are worried....they have already started their lawyers and attack dogs....but this time they are in for a few surprises....Firstly, they are not playing with a bunch of scared folks...these are honorable men who when attacked will bite back...hard and often. Secondly, thanks to the internet they are well funded and the more the DNC attack...the more funds will roll in. I urge everyone to make another donation at and then let them "BRING IT ON".

These media traitors would be the first ones imprisoned by the kind of totalitarians they want in office. I'd love to see the looks on the their faces as they got sent to concentration camps by those they helped elect.

The mainstream media has already ignored an attack against Americans and others departing from Kennedy airport in October, 1999. EgyptAir flight 990 was downed by an al quaeda pilot. No one remembers.....

Here is another quote that the mainstream press ignored recently by Sen. Scarry.

``It's great, can we do it now?'' he told reporters when asked about the address. ``Members of the Fourth Estate, I have called you here to tell you that your reign is over,'' Kerry told reporters, using the historical term for the press.

If this is true, and the media really wants Kerry in the WH, then Rush has surely been wrong about Hitlery wanting to be president in 2008.

If Berger-Burglar, Gorelick, Clarke, Clinton and the ULTRACORRUPT Democrats had been completely HONEST
to the American public about the Islamic-crashed airplanes, like TWA800, etc. etc. etc. in the 90's
then Americans WOULD have been on alert on 911
and would have had the opportunity to prevent the 911 Atrocities.

On December 14, 2002 thousands of youth will hit the streets of Harlem and Washington Heights to let our voices be heard. Uptowh Youth for Peace and Justice recognizes the urgency of opposing this war, which would represent not only an attack on the innocent people of Iraq, but also on our communities at home.
More Current Issues

As the seemingly endless lies and betrayals of the Bush administration come into the light of day, the insidious nature of the right-wing agenda is becoming more widely understood. Many national leaders now speak of the intent of the Bushites to bankrupt government; dismantle every public entity from education to Medicare; destroy union representation, civil rights and civil liberties; appropriate the spoils of the earth and dominate the entire world.
More Electoral

The details of the defeat of Cynthia McKinney in Georgia's 4th Congressional District primary and Earl Hilliard in Alabama's 7th Congressional District primary should serve to sound an alarm about the assault being carried out by the right-wing in particular against the Black vote, and overall to weaken, split and destroy progressive representation.
More Electoral

We are sincerely thankful to the Communist Party of Greece for once again hosting this vital meeting of fraternal Parties and for the opportunity to share thoughts and learn from our collective experience so that we may heighten our unity in action.
More International Communist Unity

Our country and the world are going through an exceedingly dangerous period. I suppose one could imagine a more ominous time, but I can’t think of one. We have fought two wars in the space of six months and two bloody, costly, and coercive occupations have followed. No exit strategy is under consideration in either Afghanistan or Iraq.

Eventually there will be a tipping point and Americans won't put up with being lied to anymore.

Maybe, but the older I get the less confident in that I become. It seems to me that most people just want to be told what they want to hear.
