I hope they don't try to pin this on Bobby Hodges!
It really doesn't matter who produced the document. CBS as the Media-Who-Published should have checked it out better.
Howard Hughes Will
The Salamander Letter
Report From Iron Mountain
Man, Karl is soooooo clever! He knew the DNC would suspect the fake Bush docs he typed up, but he also knew that Kerry would push them onto a media source. He knew, of course, that the MSM souce would question the authenticity of the docs, but he knew that they were too juicy for them not to make a prime time special out of. Are we talking strategery or what???
CBS, all your news are belong to DNC!
Just dropping stuff off in the mail. Let's move on.
Have no basis for knowing. But if this report is correct, Kerry could well be taking the MSM and most of the Left down with him.
It took forty years, but maybe we'll win the Viet Nam War yet...
Yes, Karl knew the stupidity of all the DNC, Kerry and CBS staffers. He's a puppetmaster extrordinare!
The latest - Karl Rove fired up the weather machine so the jobless claims would fall this month. All that and drugging Zell Miller too!!!
This story has been amazing to watch today. Thank you to all the FReepers who devoted so much time to correcting such a horrendous smear. It's like watching Watergate unravel before my very eyes.
Who is the most odious?
Teresa Heinz Kerry
Would John F. Kerry lie to the news media?
"I wonder if there are any conclusions we might draw about how he would behave as president when he makes an impestuous, ill-advised attack based on circumspect inteligence."
You mean like when he voted to let the Pres. attack Iraq after not reading the same intelligence reports the Pres. didn't read before he objected to it?
You know, this is just one more time for us Bush guys and gals to be proud. If the shoe were on the other foot, the likes of kennedy/kerry would be screaming for a federal criminal investigation, while all the DemocRatic leaders took turns at slandering the President.
Dan Blabber, with a call from Hillary-the-Carpet-Muncher.
Shooting the campaign's credibility with the MSM would sink him for certain. Hence, we should be seeking who cleared the memos within the Kerry campaign for whether they are Clinton people. Phone logs are in order.
Um, this is going to be WORSE if Kerry or the DNC sent this memo. CBS was pretty much in the back pocket of Kerry. Notice how CBS just couldn't WAIT to air the story, even though it was bogus, because they thought it would hurt Bush. CBS-Kerry-DNC COLLUSION!!!!!!!!
If CBS admits that they got these documents from the Kerry campaign, then two really neat things happen.
The first is that the idea that the Kerry campaign forges documents enters the zeitgeist. People start to wonder what other documents the Kerry campaign might have forged. The Lehman commendation? The DD-214 with the Silver Star with 'V'? It might take a lot of popcorn to watch all the fun this could cause.
The second is that the media being in the tank for Kerry becomes impossible to deny. Here CBS News has literally taken documents from the Kerry campaign and promoted them as "news," with an obvious intent to smear Bush. The media's credibility takes another mighty blow.
This is almost too good to be true.
Would not CBS revealing the source be against MSM rules? I don't expect that to happen, particularly if it would tarnish Kerry. When in doubt, side with the liberal.
If Rove duped the Kerry Team then Kerry certaintly isn't qualified to be president. Took me 10 seconds to realize the memo's were phony and you can look up my post 2 days ago of me questioning the fonts when it first appeared on the republic. The memo's are just too obivious to try and pass the buck to Rove on the grounds "we may have been duped."
Someone took a calculated risk to try and smear Bush and got caught. CBS is equally to blame because there were red-flags written all over the doc's.
