SCARY THOUGHT! However, sKerry voluntarily, or even involuntarily, has an "accident" for the good of the party, Hitlary steps in... Thankfully, a MASSIVE majority of MEN hate that skanky bag of worms.
Kerry might have gotten away with all of his out-and-out lying 10 or 20 years ago, and probably did, even if he was a bush league liar compared to the whoppers The Bent One got away with unscathed, but we're in the internet age, and facts and the truth spring up almost in an instant.
A lot of South Vietnamese were Catholic.
Has anybody considered the possibility that Kerry was sent to Cambodia on a SUPER secret mission to terminate Colonel Kurtz without prejudice?
I am starting to wonder if Kerry might be pressured to resign before the election. God knows who might be drafted to replace Kerry. Hopefully Howard Dean. Not!
It is not just a melt down, the media is in denial. With the exception of Hanity, ALL the Television media is trying to explain why kerry lying about his "hero status" is not important.
I know a few people who have medals from viet nam. They do NOT parade their medals.
Media denial and refusal to investigate the actual facts fo the story speaks of betway disease and sloth.
It does not matter where the money for the ad has arrived, it does not make the truth of the facts any less factual. Kerry has not released his records, obviously he is hiding this information. IOW a mega media DUH.
Unfortunately the mainstream sup-press is doing everything it can to keep this out of the headlines. I have yet to see anything in the major newspapers other than criticism of the Swift Vet heroes for having the audacity to expose the truth about Mr. Kerry.
It's a shame that the American people and the world may not learn about Kerry lies and devious behaviour until it is too late.
I defer to your expertise. I've never been there, but I do know a lot of people are not aware of the high number of Catholics in Vietnam.
Maybe he was ferrying Captain Willard into Cambodia:
"Everyone gets everything he wants. I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one. Brought it up to me like room service. It was a real choice mission, and when it was over, I never wanted another."
Anyone get the feeling that Kerry was trying to leap onto the popularity of "Apocalypse Now?" Notice that his claims about ferrying a CIA agent (Capt. Willard?) into Cambodia happened AFTER that movie came out.
My sense watching O'Reilly last night was that BillO special pleaded this case for Kerry.
OReilly had Rassman on and sucked up to him real bad. BO keeps acting indignant that someone is saying Rassman is LYING....He doesn't get to the issue of Rassman BEING MISTAKEN. After all, if Rassman was in the water, then he couldn't have been aware of the course of the battle from that point on. Gardner is the one who says that Kerry's boat ran away and came back after the action in time to pick up Rassman. All stuff Rassman wouldn't have known being in the water.
With the Cambodia thing, OReilly was giving Kerry a pass as its being simply an inadvertent "mistake." Something like "Kerry thought he was there but wasn't" ???
I guess Kerry was map-challenged. But BillO was looking for a way out for Kerry on this one.
One other thing that really clued me in to how out of touch and party-line OReilly is on this issue: He thought RASSMAN was a crewman AND gunner on Kerry's boat. He repeated it a number of times until finally corrected by Rassman himself.
Consider that for a moment: He had Gardner on who was a gunner on Kerry's boat, and then he has Rassman on and thinks Rassman's also a gunner. He knows Rassman is Special Forces, Green Beret, but he thinks Rassman is a gunner on Kerry's boat....even though Rassman is ARMY!
That is so unbelievably ignorant of how the military works that it deserves an article all its own. OReilly is a military dunce.
But get this, HOW can O'Reilly pretend his vaunted, supposedly researched OPINION on the Swift Boats, when he has elementary stuff about how the military works SO SCREWED UP! What it indicates is a KNEE-JERK opinion on THIS SUBJECT by BillO for some reason.
In other words, O'Reilly had an INVESTMENT in countering the Swift Boats, so he shot from the hip. Why was BillO so intent on discrediting the SwiftBoats....why did he say to open the segment that "he's so glad this story is dying down????"
The Christians I knew in Viet Nam - very few I admit - seemed to take their religion more seriously than most do here.
In the Washington Post -- the cap? Well, he'll be chewing that hat for some time.
I think this is a plausible story to stick with. See, even though Nixon didn't become president until Jan. 20 1969, maybe they could find a secret agreement to allow him to become president in December 1968 when he sent Kerry into Cambodia. As the guy in Stalag 17 said, "I believe it. I BELIEVE IT!"
Try checking out the DUmmie forum.
Unfortunately, Ted Sampley was more than happy to engage in that battle and the Swifties Against Kerry topic was barely touched.
Well, that isn't in itself a very high standard!
The only issue is to what extent can the rabid-dog democrats pull back from the edge. Their attornies must realize that they are running a real risk of leaping over hte edge into a mult-hundred-million dollar slander lawsuit against the DNC/Kerry campaign. 245 vets x $1 Million+ per vet is a lot of money - especially for a party that is whining about getting back $20,000 from the Louisiana Congressman who turned pubbie.
