Fox News Reports Bob, not John Kerry Was Vice-Chairman of Intelligence Committee
Fox News

Posted on 08/16/2004 3:23:09 PM PDT by what's up

Fox News just had a news segment where the Kerry campaign, in angry response to Bush claims that Kerry attended few Intelligence briefings, said that Kerry had at one time been the Vice-Chairman of the Intelligence campaign.

In response, the Bush people gleefully (Fox's word) returned fire by saying that it was BOB Kerrey, not JOHN Kerry who was Vice-Chairman of the Intelligence committee.

The report went on to say that Bob Kerrey had also attended 3 times as many intelligence briefings as John Kerry and Bob had also contested John's attempt to cut the budget by $6 billion.

OMG. John Kerry is out of his mind! He's lost it. He is demonstrably insane.

Wait a minute... that's it... that's the Hildabeasts plan! They've slipped JF'nKerry some psychotropic drugs and he can't tell reality from fantasy! He'll not only have to step down but he'll have to be institutionalized! Hillary will be "forced" to step in to "save the party."

What's frightening is that this may actually be worth checking into.

These guys are so used to LYING and having the press just suck it up. Unbelievable! have to wonder if Kerry told them that he was or the staff just made a mistake. The guy lies to so many people you just don't know.

The Kerry campaign actually claimed that John Kerry had been the vice chair of the Intelligence Committee?

Of course, the MSM won't report on this for days on end, like they did with Bob Dole's "gaffe" about the Brooklyn Dodgers.... But it is amusing.

The problem is that there is no Kerry Campaign. Most candidates come with at least a significant number of close advisors. Bush bought a bunch of people from his Texas days, Clinton brought a bunch of people from his Arkansas days etc. Kerry has recycled Clintonistas. Even his staff is ABB as opposed to actual Kerry (Kerrey?) supporters.

Who actually made the claim? Was it a legitimate spokesperson, or did someone stick a mike in front of an ignorant intern?

Fox will probably report it, which for liberals proves their bias; Fox rejects the silent compact by which journalists tacitly agree to minimize or ignore Democratic gaffes.

"What will they say next?"

They will say that John Kerry is also Bob Kerrey. That he attended every committee meeting as Bob Kerrey. That is why he can now say he was not in Cambodia at Christmas, that it was Bob.

It was a legitimate spokesperson who was IN the Kerry Campaign Headquarters from what I could tell; the clip was shown on FNC.

yeah and you should hear the John Kerry spokeman spinning this for all he's worth.

Talk about lies, lies and more damm lies.

Its dispicable how John Kerry would use a namesake and plagarize his record to his won ends/means. But heck, he's a Demo-rat after all and MOST of them are very fond of lying.

From the "Rapid Response Center" on Kerry's website--quick, someone more proficient than I take a "screenshot"--here (scroll down):

John Kerry is an Experienced Leader in the Intelligence Field – John Kerry served on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence for 8 years and is the former Vice Chairman of the Committee. Kerry joined the Committee in early 1993 and served until early 2001. Among the areas closely investigated by John Kerry and the Intelligence Committee include global terrorism, world wide threats to U.S. national security, international espionage, weapons of mass destruction, drug trafficking, arms trafficking and nuclear security. John Kerry is also the former Chairman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Narcotics and International Operations and conducted several high profile Intelligence and International Security investigations. Additionally, Kerry is the author of the 1997 book ‘The New War’ which addressed the challenges of global terrorism and has served on the Foreign Relations Committee for more than eighteen years. One observer of Kerry wrote that, “Kerry plunged himself into the study of international crime and its implications for America.” In fact, the Kerry Commission uncovered the drug smuggling and arms trading in the Oliver North, Iran Contra scandal. “As chairman and then ranking Democrat on the Senate subcommittee on terrorism, narcotics, and international operations, John Kerry has been out front in pushing three presidential administrations to take seriously what is going on in the international underworld.” [Cleveland Plain Dealer, 11/6/96, 7/20/97; Boston Globe 6/28/97; The Guardian, 6/19/96]

The Kerry campaign has no fact checkers?

Maybe they don't think they need any factcheckers of their own, cause they think they have Annenberg FactCheck on their side.

Annenberg Factcheck releases documents like this

Republican-funded Group Attacks Kerry's War Record

Ad features vets who claim Kerry "lied" to get Vietnam medals. But one accuser quickly recants, and other witnesses disagree.

A group funded by the biggest Republican campaign donor in Texas began running an attack ad Aug. 5 in which former Swift Boat veterans claim Kerry lied to get one of his two decorations for bravery and two of his three purple hearts. However, one of the veterans who appears in the ad has already recanted his principal accusation against Kerry, in an interview with the Boston Globe
