They already know all they want to know
Good question... why didnt you go to Iraq? ... another tough question that Gibson and the others tossed aside so they could ask Bush about those 'biggest mistakes' he made.
Why am I not surprised? Kerry and Edwards hardly show up for their regular jobs in the Senate. Thanks, Tonk.
I have never understood why this hasn't been pointed out more often. How can Kerry attempt to talk about what's going on in Iraq when he hasn't been there? For Kerry to infer in the debate that the pictures on the nightly news is an accurate picture of Iraq is intellectually dishonest (wait, scratch "intellectually"). It's proof that Kerry et al get their foreign policy briefings from the NY Times and from scraps of paper in Sandy Berger's underwear.
... IF the military votes are even COUNTED. Last I heard, it was expected that many military votes from overseas would not make it here by the deadline to be counted.
Kerry actually did go to Iraq, before he didn't.
Do you think F'n might have been present when Al invented the internet?
You are right and thanks to the Swiftees that when Kerry thought he was under fire, HE TURNED AND RAN, LEAVING ALL OF HIS OTHER COMRADES BEHIND AND THEN HE LIED ABOUT IT AND GAVE HIMSELF ANOTHER Purple Heart and Bronze Star.....
Note in particular that both Edwards and Kerry claimed in the debates that Iraq is in "chaos" and Americans know it because that is what they see on their TV every day. Iow, they are using the leftist media script in Iraq.
These members of Congress who made the trip, along with our service people and the Iraqis themselves, have a different story to tell. They have inspected with their own eyes. Kerry and Edwards have not.
NEW KERRY AD
" George Bush claims John Kerry is a flip-flop artist.Here is the truth about John Kerry.........
"John Kerry for 20 years has consistently cut to the front of any line for any theatre ticket, groceries, or public event, and when questioned by those in line exclaimed "do you know who I am?"
" John Kerry has consistenly voted for ultra left wing causes whenever he managed to show up to vote"
" John Kerry consistently and relentlessly sought medals for combat in Vietnam....even when he ran when cornered"
"John Kerry has consistenly stood by his treasonous statement about his fellow comrades in arms, even when some were prisoners of war"
" John Kerry consistently married women with a net worth of between 200-750,000,000.00......Never those of the middle classes"
"John Kerry BELIEVES in John Kerry"
Paid for by union members whether they liked it or not!!
Dollars to donuts Sen. Lurch (D-Himself) will get over there before November 2.
That clip should be used in ads. It shows that sKerry had/has no clue - giving up on the cold war (or just not wanting to fight it for whatever reason), then Reagan went on to win it.
I don't think he said Walter Reed, just that he had visited some wounded soldiers. Are there any veteran hospitals in the St. Louis area?
Did you see that new parody that John Kasich played on 'Heartland' last night?
Kerry actually did go to Iraq, before he didn't
Once and for all Kerry said he likes a nice Rack not that he went to iraq
Hey that $3000 manicure was on special it came with a free bikini wax! Do you really think the Johns would pass up a deal like that?
What everyone misses in these discussions is that the 45 or so percent of America that voted for Clinton and will probably vote for JFK2 WANTS to believe the distortions and WILL accept them as writ merely because of that fact.
It's pretty clear in the "VRWC"/"Smears"/"forged but accurate" defense that automatically springs forth against each and every finding or negative comment. The "truth" is only what is perceived as truth and the other side, be they socialists, slackers, or a self defined elite, will only perceive truth as they WANT to perceive it.
Just like Slick William before him and Hitlery who will follow, Kerry's lies are only meaningful to those who already intend to vote against him.
Scary ain't it.
Good find Tonk!
"Not that there's anything wrong with that..."
Don't worry Ron that's what the Pajamahadeen are for, working to keep them all honest.
Yep! It can be tough to Ketchup.
Before Columbus day is over this will get Printed and Posted in my Truck window as well as passed around real good.
You know that is an excellent point for sure...One that should be on TV...at the debate
Don't give them any photo op ideas!!!!
Defeat in the War on Terror can happen in a single day:
VOTE NOVEMBER 2 TO WIN THE WAR ON TERROR, NOT SURRENDER TO THE TERRORISTS!

PS---here is the thread. I got off the wall a bit earlier. That's just me.
I see a good commercial in the making:
Kerry: "Iraq is a quagmire"...
First person who's actually been there tells first success story.
Kerry: "you can see it on TV"
Another person tells of another success.
Kerry: "we're doomed"
Recording of Iraqi Interim President (Prime minister, I can't remember) from his speech in front of congress, tabulating successes.
Voice over: "Who would you believe, Senator Kerry who's never been to Iraq or these people who have?"
"They weren't there. They have no room to talk!"
Oh, great. Throw that into the commercial as well.

I LOVE IT!!!! THANKS TO ALL OUR SOLDIERS! thank you for fighting for MY Freedom!! love ya'll and praying for your safety!
GEORGE W. FOR AMERICA... HE WILL... GIT R DONE!!
"In matters relating 2 the 'War on Terror' we support our military unconditionally. Yes, even if that means supporting the brutal slaughter of a terrorist or 2 from time to time" : )
Thankyou Tonk. I sent this around to my email list.
