Too early to tell whether Bush-hatred trumps anger at getting suckered.

I dunno...Bush-hatred is pretty darn rabid. And where there's rabies, rational thinking goes out the window. The Kerry camp seems to believe (and doesn't mind telling people) that the media wants to see him elected.

No, I'm going to have to put my money on the Bush-hatred factor. Even being embarassed by their guy isn't going to be enough to make the liberal commie MSM turn around and start reporting fairly about Kerry's Grand Adventures in Vietnam (not to mention his pitiful record as a Senator).

This hasn't seemed to touch sKerry's poll numbers yet. Like any bad sKerry news, it's being ignored by the liberal press.

If Kerry was sent on a secret drop-off mission, he's going to have to come up with some proof

I'll bet he'll pull an old hat out from his briefcase - the hat says "C I A" all over the front. There's your "proof".

I read about a woman who has a terminal illness and as her last wish she wanted Bush to lose. Then there is George Soros who SAYS he would sacrifice a good share of his fortune to defeat Bush. I have NEVER seen hatred like this in my entire life!

"Kerry wrote an article for the Boston Herald on October 14, 1979:

"I remember spending Christmas Eve of 1968 five miles across the Cambodian border being shot at by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas. The absurdity of almost killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real."
"

The shot that sunk a wanna be!

Good job John.

This needs to be re-posted as often as it takes, to get everyone up to par.

I keep asking myself if President Bush can withstand this 24/7 hate fest? The liberal 527 groups are spending HUGE $$$ to defeat Bush. These are dangerous hate filled people!

John yesterday RUSH mentioned hanoi john sent biden and levin to EU i.e..france to make secret deals with them to send troops AFTER he gets election. This is how he's going to get other nations involved.

First this is illegal I would think, second he's allowing more of our Troops and other nations troops to be killed just for the sake of getting elected. It's realy telling what kind of CIC he'd make.

Has any of our well read FReepers been able to turn up any news articles to afirm what RUSH mentioned?

It looks like Kerry's selective release of his military and health records was smoke, and that the big-time journalists at the New York Times, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post fell for it.

When it's a 'Rat political candidate, such as Clinton, now Kerry, they always fall for it ... the candidates know they will and expect them to ... it's a given.

Good morning JH2....thanks for the early news, how do you do it?
The HH Swift piece is the beginning of the end for JfK & possibly the facades that prop up the far Left in the US...also it is a direct salvo on the "Big lie" media....one could not write a Novel this good!
I have to think that the choice is starting to become quite clear. Wonder what is next, the WH has yet to effectively bring their best game, so it's base may remain a bit shaky, but you can't say the WH has not been Battle Tested over the last 3+yrs and will probably open the can on the boy Hero from the awarding winning movie Fall of Saigon.... What a fascinating election year. As my mother would often say, "everything will be OK".

Too early to tell whether Bush-hatred trumps anger at getting suckered.

The only reason the Liberals care about Kerry's Vietnam experience is that they feel it gives him credibility on National Security matters, making him pretty much the only Democrat in the United States who can make that claim (besides Joe Lieberman who is disqualified, of course). Because they aren't particulary interested in his actual opinion on National Security, they don't really care about the particulars of his Vietnam experience.

The Media will be gladly rolled on this one. Kerry will issue some mealy-mouthed obvious lie about navigational error and the Fog of War, and the Medial will lick the hand that feeds them.

"and as recently as June 2003 was regaling a Washington Post reporter with a story of how he had ferried a CIA man secretly into Cambodia, and how he'd kept the man's hat as a reminder of that journey."

From the Washington Post article:

"A close associate hints: There's a secret compartment in Kerry's briefcase. He carries the black attaché everywhere. Asked about it on several occasions, Kerry brushed it aside. Finally, trapped in an interview, he exhaled and clicked open his case.

"Who told you?" he demanded as he reached inside. "My friends don't know about this." The hat was a little mildewy. The green camouflage was fading, the seams fraying.

"My good luck hat," Kerry said, happy to see it. "Given to me by a CIA guy as we went in for a special mission in Cambodia."

Kerry put on the hat, pulling the brim over his forehead. His blue button-down shirt and tie clashed with the camouflage. He pointed his finger and raised his thumb, creating an imaginary gun. He looked silly, yet suddenly his campaign message was clear: Citizen-soldier. Linking patriotism to public service. It wasn't complex after all; it was Kerry.

He smiled and aimed his finger: "Pow."

Oh, what a tangled web we weave...

What Shezza said. The lefties will do a xlintoon if its proved that sKerry is and was lying about some (or all) of his exploits in 'Nam.

"Its just a exaggeration."
"A little white lie.
"Some lame bragadicio."

"Besides, everyone does it."

But not everyone is a United States Senator and a candidate for the presidency.

A direct hit, and the White House didn't even fire a shot.

I don't know if the Bush base is shaky, I think it's been quite rock-ribbed all along.

I mean, Kerry has essentially set himself up to fall. It is his own undoing.

Now we get to see if there's any pride left in the newsroom. Do any of these writers, reporters and producers resent getting played by Kerry? If so, payback will be stiff.

Many on this board have predicted exactly that. Expect the dogs to turn on Kerry by sept if he cant clear himself of these allegations

The absurdity of almost killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real.

Not to mention the absurdity of listening to an address by a President who wasn't. On Christmas 1968, LBJ was still President.

"Why all the attention? Simply put, if John Kerry can be conclusively demonstrated to have lied about aspects of his Vietnam service, the media has to ask what else has he been lying about. The voters have to ask if he can be trusted. In short: Free fall."

The media has to do no such thing and they will prove it by not asking a single question on this issue. His article is right on the money, but the media is going to ignore this story.

Actually, before the commies took over there were quite a few Catholic Vietnamese. Probably they've all been re-educated or eliminated by now thanks to Kerry and his pals.
