Kerry says Iraq IS part of the war on terror
CNN ^

Posted on 09/07/2004 6:28:25 PM PDT by Spackidagoosh

KERRY: "Today marks a tragic milestone in the war in Iraq. More than 1,000 of America's sons and daughters have now given their lives on behalf of their country, on behalf of freedom in the war on terror. I think that the first thing that every American wants to say today is how deeply we each feel the loss."

He said it wasnt before he said it was.

I wonder what his October position will be.

he couldn't be in favor of death, so he had to be in favor of iraq right that moment; he can change it around tomorrow. I'm beginning to get hang of the "Kerry Calculus".

"War On Terror" - isn't that the thing Kerry said was based on an exaggerated threat and largely a matter for the police and courts?

Dittos to Airborne Leghorn: excellent catch.

However, Kerry will be coming out with a clarification tomorrow, explaining that he when he called the war in Iraq part of the war on terror, he didn't mean to call the war in Iraq part of the war on terror. Clear?

Was Kerry for the war before he was against it, or was he against the war before he was for it?

If you want to know what Kerry is for, just wait until the next day from which he says he is against it.....no wonder his wife wants her dead husband back...every other day, Kerry says he wants his first rich-skirt back...

Kerry.."Don't listen to what I said then.. Listen to what I said now.. We must move forward, not backward... backward, not forward, and always spinning, spinning around and around..." I'll explain the reference if anyone doesn't get it...

... on behalf of freedom in the war on terror.

John Kerry has acknowledged that Bush is pursuing freedom in Bush's war on terror.

Kerry still has wiggle room to disparage & distance himself from Bush's war on terror, just as the Leftist Partisan Press did in their dispatches form Russia when they eschewed the label terrorist whilst describing the Militant Islamists engaged in terrorism.

Let's see a couple of weeks ago Kerry said he would have supported the war on Iraq knowing what he now knows, then yesterday he said it was the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time, and TODAY he says the war in Iraq is part of the war on terrorism. Just how many SWITCHEROOS does this guy go thru?

Listen, he said the same thing yeasterday as he said 10 days ago and the same thing today as he said 9 days ago. He is being consistent on every position he takes so long as you don't pay attention to the previous or next position. This is how its done in the Democratic Party, DAMMIT!!!

For the life of me, I can't figure out Kerry's flip-flops, inconsistencies, etc.....UNLESS:
his exalted position as Senator for so long exempts him from being challenged about anything. HE'S John Kerry. HE can say anything, and don't you F'kN dare challenge me. I'M JOHN KERRY. God...he makes me sick.

NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER

John Kerry has a big problem!

Diagnostic criteria for 301.81 Narcissistic Personality Disorder (cautionary statement) A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:

(1) has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

(2) is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

(3) believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)

(4) requires excessive admiration

(5) has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations

(6) is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends

(7) lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others

(8) is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her

(9) shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

HOW MANY OF THESE TRAITS TO YOU SEE IN JOHN KERRY? I SEE ALL OF THEM. KERRY IS SICK LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, AND WE CAN NOT ALLOW THIS NUT CASE TO GET ELECTED.

I guess the Dem base has a very short attention span or kerry would know that he cant flip flop like this and win.

I bet Cheney cant wait to exercise his wit , and Bush will do good also.

Bush needs to get physo help and identify the "points" that ticks Kerry off, and then hammer Kerry with them during the debate. Make Kerry mad and watch him start frothing at the mouth.

Excellent plan. heheh

I bet they did that with Gore. Remember when he lost it and acted like he was going to get in Bush's face? That cost him some votes.

There is an expression for this.

It is called "mental masturbation."
