Lets McCain slide on dishonrable sh6t but says the Vets are an independent organization and have the constitutional right to present their side of the story. Right on Bob.

Dole was hot in the Florida recount, too. Viagra has really made a new man out of the guy.

Dole is right. His Senate record tells what he is. His 4 month stint in Vietnam confirms it.

Harkin just got whacked for his 'battle' record in 'Nam as well.. lol...

Dole challenged Wolf to go and talk to the people involved for a week and then tell the people what he found.

Wolf quoting RINO after RINO. Now Warner:

We did extroadinary careful checking on those medals and we should acknowledge that Kerry deserves recognition.

Dole says in a word:

BS. Kerry wrote his own citation and Dole has always questioned his purple hearts when Kerry brags about them.

As an aside, I have more scars from street fights as a kid than Kerry does as a three time purple heart winner in the Nam. Guess NY is a dangerous place.

Blitzer: Tom Harkin says...
Dole: Harkin is one to complain since he was hiding out in Japan while claiming he was a Vietnam veteran
Blitzer: Well, that's another story but Harkin says Cheney was a cowrad

OK, I paraphrased somewhat..but that was what was said in a nutshell

Unbelievable...Blitzer...

Kerry spend 3 months in "action" in Vietnam before he petitioned for transfer because of his war wounds. 3 Purple Hearts in 3 months. One per month on average. Something stinks in Kerryland.

Great words by Bob Dole, but I think we're going about this wrong. If you attack the Purple Hearts or his service you get mired in an investigation of volumes of old facts.

If you go straight to Kerry's VVAW comments, you can hang him with his own words! Concentrate on his treasonous actions after the war, and you get rid of a great deal of the factual controversies. The second Swift Boat ad starts to do this.

Wolf is what you would call a journalist who practices advocacy. Not too bright and not too ballsy but a good foot soldier for the left.

Bob Dole doesn't need two arms to whip the asses of the likes of you. One arm and half a brain will do nicely.

If I cut myself shaving while CNN is on the TV, can I get a Bronze Star for being wounded while under enemy fire?

Excellent point on the news...

The Democratic Convention shut down Boston for security sake.

The Republican Convention is inviting New York to do business as usual, with the additional security being the only catch.

The RNC trusts the police to do their job.

The DNC didn't, was the implied gaff.

I just thought that was interesting, even if it is off topic.

Chrissy Matthews: "Bob Dole wasn't in Viet Nam. He's not allowed to comment on Kerry or his purple hearts. Is he saying Kerry wasn't bleeding? Is he saying Kerry...just answer the question...he's off."

Poor Dole. Good to know that he's firing from both rounds, though! He'll be a huge asset to Bush if he keeps doing interviews like these.

kilter just represents the typical Dim: nothing but unbridled hatred for the military, all the while loving a guy for using his "service" in order to get into power.

The Dims cannot stand real heroes.

What the Sifwties are doing in their own way is softening Kerry for the major attack on his twenty year record in the Sneate.

I, for one, am delighted that they are doing it. I wasn't in Vietnam but I served with a lot of guys who were and they educated me on John Kerry 30 years ago. It's nice to see that guy getting his comeuppance by the guys he slandered and tagged as baby killing, drug addled madmen.

A veteran is not allowed to have free speech? I guess in Chris Matthews' world it only counts if one's in favor of Kerry.

Dole was fantastic in Florida in 2000 and he was fantastic today. Yeah Bob Dole is bit more moderate in many things than many of us here but he is a loyal patriot who has given much to this country and he has more to give. Go Bob Go.

Dem Senator Bill Nelson says the "Truth is coming out now." and brings up the Chicago Trib writer as one who was there "commanding a swift boat right along side John Kerry."

I think the Trib writer has been promoted in the last week, hasn't he?

He could still whup Jimmah's ass and he's pushing 80 himself..

He saw some nasty combat in his day that would have made Kerry sing a different tune about his countrymen, one would hope.
