Skip to comments.Joe Scarborough Still Thinks Kerry's A War Hero
Posted on 08/18/2004 7:53:35 PM PDT by LakeLady
I just heard Joe Scarborough say that he felt Kerry is a war hero. Scarborough said if Kerry feels that he misspoke as a young man he should say so, but if he stands by his anti-war/war crimes statements, he should keep quiet. Did anyone else hear this and interpret it this way? I was surprised. I thought we could count on Joe to acknowledge the truth.
Yes and I can believe I'm Britney Spears.
Joe started to go wobbly about 6 months ago.
I, co-incidently, stopped watching him at about that time.
I've been so out of touch lately dealing with grandbabies and their parents' potential divorce that I had no idea he'd gone wobbly. What a load of bs that is. Joe was the one I counted on to tell the truth. Have you any idea why he's wobbling?
Please say a prayer for my kids.
This guy is looking out for his job on that third rate network.
Joe's not doing his homework. I stopped watching him because of this.
You might want to aim a little higher.
I'd be glad to send an e-mail...do you think he still reads comments from his viewers?
I thought it was more like a challenge to Kerry. He should apologize for what he said against his fellow vets way back or if he is not sorry and stays quiet the controversy will continue.
Joe Scarborough is Bill O'Reilly lite
' Translation - Joe still hasn't read "Unfit for Command"."
Neither has Sean Hannity ,John Gibson or Bill O'Reilly.
Once they read the book, there is no way they can say they honor John Kerry's service.
For they will be saying they honor the service of a fraud and a pathological liar.
I don't have any idea. He just seemed to lose the hard conservative edge he had when he started the show in the early part of 2003.
Joe did ask Kerry to apologize to the veterans, who Kerry harmed tremendously with his reckless accusations upon returning from Vietnam. But I turned off Scarborough Country tonight when he let Lawrence O'Donnell once again state that "Unfit for Command" was not journalistically correct, or something along those lines. I sure never saw O'Donnell take such an interest in the journalistic techniques of Michael Moore or other Bush bashers.
But I agree, Joe was too easy on these guys tonight.
Good luck with the domestic situation.
Well, I heard it just now. But, when I heard it, I thought that Joe was sending out a challenge to Kerry. Joe Scarborough said, that if Kerry ignores the subject, its like admitting it. Joe said that Kerry should apologize for what he said over 30 years ago. Larry ODonnell the dem twerp, said that by ignoring the swiftboat vets book and Ad, the Kerry campaign hopes to keep it from getting noticed by the mainstream press.
He let the MSNBC guy O'Donnell get away with saying Fatso's 9-11 film had 7 or 8 inconsistencies... we Freepers know there are 57! The talking point of the authors of the Swiftboat book not interviewing the guys on Kerry's boat has been adressed by O'Neill, they refused under advisement not to talk to him. As a trained and successful interrogator (interviewer for the PC, which I'm not) I can tell Joe needs to listen to these guys word for word and the most important factor is to know your stuff before conducting the "interview".
Scarborough's thickheaded and a dullard. Can't see the truth when it hits him square in the face. I watched his program one time over a year ago and couldn't sit through the entire thing.
A big welcome to FReeperhood. We're glad you've joined us.
Thank you so much for your prayers for my family. It truly means a lot; it's been difficult.
I expected better from Joe too. I was actually shocked, but after reading everyone's comments, I shouldn't have been.
It will be big news. My take: despite the girthe of the article all three skippers said there was no fire. But one got a Bronze Star based on a report ther was fire. Toward the end you can see he the "report" would actually counter three of them.
Notice how they bury the comment about Kerry coming from afar. This comports with Gardner's story.
They repeat the supposed Boston Globe contradiction story.
Thank you! The kids need all the divine intervention they can get. Your thoughts are much appreciated. I probably shouldn't have put that in there, but you know how we mouths of the south are. We wear our hearts on our sleeves.
"But I agree, Joe was too easy on these guys tonight."
This show was "fair and balanced" compared to Chris Matthews and his Hardball trist with John O'Neill and Jim Hurley.
O'Reilly without the Factorcrap.
Well, if you watched it, then you heard O'Donnell talking about keeping the book, "Unfit to Command" out of the mainstream media, out of our local TV news, and away from the average citizen, who doesn't have time to get the Talking heads News Shows. So, how do we combat this -- we GOT to get this out in the mainstream public!
Just another quick point I observed, when this O'donnell guy spews about the mainstream media not picking up on the story, or already deeming it "un-newsworthy", Joe should have asked if he could construe it as hiding the story hoping it may go away, or burying it because of their bias toward the lib candidate in the election, not wanting to harm Kucking Ferry.
Call me crazy, but do war heroes take center stage across the world and unsurp the morale and credibility of their fellow Vets and country while at the same time embolden the enemy? Let`s not even get into who won what medals, that to me is enough to get someone tried for treason never mind lead this country. Let`s not forget, those Vets from Aru-Gharib are probably going to do jail time for doing something to our military that in my opinion was just as equal as to what Kerry did, if not less.
No problem to cry out in pain once in awhile.
Good luck. Be strong.
And be stern with your kids.
O'Donnell is a real prick whenever the subject of Vietnam comes up, on any show at any time. He's got something in his closet about Vietnam and I'm not sure what it is but it can't be good.
It's been noticed. IT'S BEING IGNORED.
This is an inadvertent admission by O'Donnell that the LSM is purposely blocking this information from the American public.
I was listening to Michael Savage on the way home from a Republican meeting and he was on fire about the Swift Boat guys and how Kerry should be court martialed. His description of the three purple hearts was priceless. Joe should listen to him!
you slipped that in on me... welcome to FR
I must be honest. I haven't read "Unfit for Command" yet. I simply believe it because all 'rats are liars. If they are not, then they will have to refute what the Swift-vets are saying.
They will simply attempt personally destroy the messenger. There will be no refutation of "Unfit for Command". That is enough evidence for me.
Benefit of any doubt goes to the swiftvets.
Kerry is a liar until he proves otherwise, and I daresay, he cannot.
Can't help ya .. I gave up on Joe a while back .. he's comments are a but much for me to take
Oh and BTW .. Kerry is on record saying he is proud of what he did back in the 70's
And Kerry ain't no hero
Joe has given more airtime to the swiftvet's ad story than any other cable network. I'll give him credit for that. He's being fair but supports the swiftvets as much as Hannity. O'Reilly is the real turncoat.
Hey yourself (it's a southern thing)!
So glad you've found your band of brothers and sisters here.
You couldn't have come to a better place. I hope to see some aricles from you. I'll be looking out.
All the best to you and yours.
Thanks! I don't want to boo-hoo, but rest assured I will kick some kids' butt if they hurt my babies.
Shermy, I think everyone has ignored your link. You should post this article in a thread all by itself. I don't think it helps our cause too much, however.
Kerry is a war hero ONLY in the sense that anyone who went to Vietnam is considered a war hero.
In reality, he negated that goodwill not only by distorting and lying about his own service, but then returning to lie and distort the years of service of his fellow soldiers.
Ironic, isn't it, that Kerry distorted his own four months of service to make himself out a hero, while distorting the admirable service of everyone around himself to make THEM look like war criminals and baby killers.
Does MOgirl stand for Missouri girl?
"Sending an email couldn't hurt"
It's a done deal!
No, his link wasn't ignored by me; I read it. I just ass-u-med it was taken from a previous post of his. It's a blood boiler, and you're right, it needs a post of its own.
Hello, and yes it does. I live in SW St. Louis County.
Glad to be here, MOgirl
