Gingrich just ripped into Kerry.
Said he undermined the US, Vietnam (troops, nations, leaders) 30 years ago.
Said he is doing the same now.
Said it is WHAT Kerry Does!
He's doing exactly the same thing he did in 1971.
I sure miss ol Newt telling dems they way it is.
Kerry is in the demoralizing business...he is clearly trying to demoralize our troops, our nation, our allies, and our leadership.
The man is NOT a patriot!
John Kerry: Wrong then. Wrong now.
f stands for effing wrong.
We can disagree with Newtie sometimes, or not approve of his personal life, but as far as politics and policy go, he is always on the money. In this case he is so right. For America to seemingly have 2 voices at this critical time when we should be unified, is a disgrace. Teresa should refer to her own husband as "scumbag" and "idiot" because he sure is.
Let's not forget Kerry's stellar Senate career where his greatest achievements were
Stopping the funding for the Nicaraguan Contras after bring back a peace agreement with Daniel Ortega of the Sandanistas (which was worthless). Ortega turned around and solicited $200 million from the Soviets a few days later. Read: Kerry's Disloyal Nicaraguan Journey and Don't forget 'The John Kerry Committee'
Investigating (or creating) the Iran/Contra and BCCI scandals.
Blocking the vote on the Vietnam Human Rights Act in the Senate in 2001, which tied U.S. aid to Vietnam's human rights performance, and had passed by a 410-1 margin in the House of Representatives. Kerry, chairman of the Senate's East Asian and Pacific Affairs subcommittee, said in a statement at the time that he and fellow Vietnam War veteran Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) "are concerned that denying aid to Vietnam would actually slow human rights improvements." Many Vietnamese living abroad, along with human rights campaigners, say conditions in Vietnam have deteriorated in the three years since Kerry blocked the legislation.
Persuading the MIA/POW Senate committee to vote unanimously that no POWs existed in Vietnam in order to open up trade with Vietnam (his cousin C. Stewart Forbes, CEO of Colliers Intl, received a contract for a huge commercial deal worth at least $905 million to develop a deep-sea commercial port at Vung Tau). For more on the POW/MIA issue, here is a great article: When John Kerry's Courage Went M.I.A. - Senator covered up evidence of P.O.W.'s left behind

It seems that the president hinted at the same thing yesterday when he spoke of those who were sending "mixed messages" to our troops, our allies, our nation.
But Newt isn't constrained by the campaign.
He just ripped Kerry a new one!
He's a bad man and thats what bad men do.
JFK = Just For Kerry
Kerry is not alone in the undermining effort, just as he wasn't alone during the 'Nam era
How dispicable it is to see Kerry trash the leader of Iraq, and how horrific to hear his sycophants doing the same...claiming that Allawi is LYING about the great successes in Iraq....ignoring that this good leader spoke to the fact that of the eighteen provinces in Iraq (states within Iraq, as it were), that FIFTEEN are settling into freedom, learning about democracy, safe and ready to VOTE TOMORROW if necessary.
That only THREE provinces remain in turmoil, and yet, our press, and the kerry camp, are so disingenuous and so determined to break American's resolve to win this war, that they are WILLING to call Iraq's leader a liar (basically that is what they did), willing to call our President a liar (that is a fact), and willing to HURT OUR TROOPS.
Just like they did in VIETNAM where MILLIONS died when we pulled out because John Kerry and the CBS, in particular, walter cronkite (who said the war was UNWINNABLE when we were WINNING) destroyed our resolve and caused a heartache within our Vietnam troops that was TOTALLY BASED ON THEIR ATTACKS AND LIES.
So they do it again with Iraq...but this time....WE ARE HERE and we WILL NOT LET THEM DESTROY OUR EFFORT TO WIN THIS WAR!
I have never felt such anger towards our press as I did yesterday.
We all need to email Sen Kerry and flood his office with letters telling him to stop his undermining of the Iraqi people and Pres Bush. He did it when he came back from Vietnam and is doing it once again. He is putting our soldiers at risk. Please send him a letter or email his campaign.
Great points by Newt. What is next with Kerry? Slandering the soldiers when they return?
That's true - he's not alone - he has the whole Democrat party with him. That's "Democrat Party - those who hate America".
Very well said! I agree completely!
