Kerry and Edwards never went to Iraq. 233 members of Congress did.

I think that when Kerry was for the war, he'd get on the plane to visit the troops. Then once inside the plane, he was against the war and deplaned. I would think he'd be rather dizzy at the end of it. Just a theory.

Read what Kerry said in 1971 before the senate and you will know why he didn't go....

you read carefully the President’s last speech to the people of this country, you can see that he says, and says clearly:

But the issue, gentlemen, the issue is communism, and the question is whether or not we will leave that country to the Communists or whether or not we will try to give it hope to be a free people.(sounds like Bush doesn't it?)

But the point is they are not a free people now under us. They are not a free people, and we cannot fight communism all over the world, and I think we should have learned that lesson by now.

They don't have to go. According to them everyone knows Iraq is a mess, because they can see it on TV.

"Kerry and Edwards have never been to Iraq."

True, but they did spend the night at a Holiday Inn in Boston, Mass one time.

I think Kerry actually SAID he went to Iraq. I don't remember when he said it. But that would be a good quote to have, then debunk it with the facts.

Then do the same with his Christmas in Cambodia statement.

This would be a great way of showing why his behavior after Vietnam is relevant: a liar and traitor then, a liar and traitor now.

I've been saying this for a while now. Kerry claimed in Fridays debate that he "visited the kids at Walter Reed earlier that day". THAT'S A LIE. He arrived in St. Louis the night before and if he was there their would be stories about the chilly reception he would no doubt receive.

I have been waiting to see if he would visit our wounded at Walter Reed or Bethesda Naval Hospital, and so far, I have read story about him visiting Walter Reed, but there is no pictures of him being their that I could find.

Kerry might have been to Walter Reed, but I seriously doubt he ever met with any of our wounded in either hospital. I say this because I have been there several times and have actually asked if Kerry ever paid a visit. Every answer was NO

While Edwards and Kerry should make a visit to Iraq, it is my belief that it will only make them look desperate for the military votes. I would't want them going there bad mouthing Bush to our troops. There also is the probability of some of the troops who absolutely disagree with this war and the President to take it upon themselves to express their anger to Edwards and Kerry. Which will only give Kerry and Edwards ammunition against Bush. So, I actually like the idea of them not going. If you think about it, whether they go or not it makes them look bad regardless. If they go, they look desperate for the military votes, if they don't go it makes them look absolutely unconcerned about the troops.

Yeah, and how many times has Kedwards accused Bush of not knowing what is going on over there. He even accused Allawi of lying about the conditions in Iraq. What a politican! We don't need a politician now - you fool our country is in danger. By Gosh we need someone with a backbone and that will take the time to GO see the troops. Every time I read something like this about that idiot I just want to weep for our country. There are actually as many people for him as for Bush.

"War hero" Kerry suddenly a case of the nerves when confronted with visiting a war zone. After all, what's more important, visiting our troops in Iraq or getting a $3,000.00 manicure?

Hmmm...how can you call something a 'MESS', 'FAILURE' or 'QUAGMIRE' when you've NEVER been there to SEE it with your OWN eyes??

America also needs to be reminded of Bonior and McDermott's treason before the war. While typing their names out, I thought about something: could they have been implicated in the Oil For Food Scandal?

The DNC has already fielded this attack, according to the Kerry's spokesperson:

"Kerry has always said, recently, that it was the wrong war at the wrong time and that he DID fly over to Iraq, he just landed in the wrong place at the wrong time and saw something from a distance that looked convincingly like the wrong war. Besides that there is no plan to win the peace. He has a plan."

Maybe this is Kerry's "October surprise"? He unveils the details to all these "plans" on Nov. 1., hoping that no one can debunk them in time for election. He can show he has a detailed plan and there won't be time for a rebut. I'm not really a conspiracy theorist. Honest!

I heard that O'Reilly has an old interview with Kerry where he says that he was at the signing of the cease-fire in Iraq after the first Gulf War. A blogger thought that would be odd considering he voted AGAINST that war so he checked and sure enough Kerry was at some social occasion in New York the night before the signing and at some other party the day after the signing. Does this guy have to take credit for being everywhere at all times, suggested every piece of legislation that came up in the Senate and has he instructed Bush personally on EVERY thing that Bush has done wrong (after Kerry told him the RIGHT way to do it)? Compulsive liar - that is a neurosis/character flaw.

Speaking of calling Allawi a liar. Did anyone wonder why George didn't pounce on Kerry about the allies business? Bush could have asked Kerry how he expected to get support from France, Russia and China when they were in Saddam's hip pocket. But he didn't.
I think I figured out why. Bush realizes that he still has to work with these countries to get some things done. He had the statesmanship by not to alienating them further. Kerry, it seems, has no such statesmanship. I found that very telling.
