Sadly, many people only see what they wish to see and not what is.
I think it was stated that no one remembers Kerry at the cease-fire signing. He was back in Kuwait at the hotel.
Kerry has described the coalition of 30+ Nations who are contributing in operations on the ground in Iraq as "Window Dressing" and a Coalition of the "Coerced and Bribed". I'm sure his rhetoric is not well receives in Great Britain, Poland, Italy and Australia, who have all had soldiers killed in Iraq.
John Kerry has had a long history of sucking up to the enemies of freedom and denouncing our efforts to spread liberty. If you don't believe me... just ask Daniel Ortega. or visit the war museum in Vietnam where Kerry is honored for his efforts to demoralize our troops and undermine public support here in the good old USA.
John Kerry is an opportunist scumbag whose only concern is his own desires and could care less about this country or the soldiers who defend it.
The old saying, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Only Kerry is characterizing America as the enemy, and frankly the terrorists aren't impressed. Terrorists just prefer a lot less impact on their spread of hate and any alternative to Bush.
The signing was March 3rd, Kerry didn't get there until the 17th.
KERRY LIED AGAIN
Oddly enough, all Kerry had to say in the beginning was "We have 30+ nations in this coalition and that is a good beginning. But we should have tried to get more nations involved before we moved. That's the rash mistake that the president made."
That statement would have gotten him out of alot of hot water.
Same thing with the Vietnam vets. "When I was younger, I made some foolish decisions. I have since realized that they were wrong and I apologize to those with whom I served and all those who honorably served this great country in a very trying time."
Would these things have been too hard to say? Guess I'm just an idiot in pajamas or something.
Figures, Geraldo has been here more then sKerry/Breckgirl....
Geraldo for President? LOL

Replace "thanked" with "thanks" and it makes it 30 Bush and 0 Kerry.
THanks! It truly is a great place, and the longer you are here, the more you will appreciate it.
Just read and respond to posts as often as you wish. Many times you won't recieve a reply, but that doesn't mean you haven't been read and appreciated.
You will often come back tomorrow and find responses to your replies posted yesterday-some times not. JUst relax and enjoy this opportunity to express your opinions, and know that people all over this planet are reading them and sometimes responding.
In European circles, to blame America for everything is Chic. Has been for a long time. I think the Euros really are bitter that we bailed them out in WWII. As for the terrorists, well I don't think they're as worried about who's elected as we are worried. They're going to do the same things. It would just be easier under a Kerry administration.
Just wondering: If all these martyrs get 72 virgins when they die, won't they run out of virgins eventually? I really am curious about that, not just jesting.
"True, but they did spend the night at a Holiday Inn in Boston, Mass one time."
Shared room? Single bed?
Please, please, please no. Don't go there. My stomach is already churning.
His record is clear
I don't think so
Maybe that is why they are targeting schools full of young children and strapping their own kids for detonation.
Correct you are.
Come to think of it, if C-BS had done something similar, they wouldn't be in such trouble either.
Whatever happened to leadership, statesmanship and diplomacy? Common sense?
If he had been in Iraq it would have made the news big time.
Don't you remember?...Kerry was there for the surrender terms signing at the end of Gulf War I.
I am not familiar with their accomodations that night, but their bodies would probably fit comfortably into a single bed, providing that each had a king sized bed, for trheir big fat heads.
He knows too much about fragging to go over there.
I'd also like to see the documentation on him visiting any troops in the hospital. I can't find not one google reference.
May we never find out the truth of that statement.
Well, you brought tears to my eyes, so I think I'll just stop for a second...
Good riddance to him.
John Kerry has publicly stated that he a has *No Clue* why Dubya is in Iraq.
If John Kerry was Commander in Chief, he would, in his mind, be in a quagmire, on day one of his on-the-job training.
It would be Saigon 1975 all over again.
That's what he claims, but there is a whole analysis about the timeline, that he may have been there shortly afterwards, but doubtful he was actually there for the signing.

Was Kerry In Iraq In 1991 For Cease-Fire Accord?
He also said he was in Iraq at the signing of the armistice after GW I. He wasn't, he was there a couple of weeks later with a group of Senators visiting troops.
Just amazing how he can talk about being someplace and 'I could feel the land whatever blah blah blah...' and NO-ONE but us calls him on it!!!
I'm sure they have a plan for that too
I thought in one of his interviews after locking up the nomination, Kerry said he had gone to Iraq. [That interview would have been months ago.]
[Maybe I am thinking of his saying he was 'there' for the end of Gulf War 1.]
They take out too many innocents for me to want to completely understand their truth either. There are plenty of people, countries, cultures that can be reasoned with, but not terrorists.
In response to your tagline...If you had the record that John Kerry does in the Senate, wouldn't YOU try to run on someone else's record? I would.
Neither was present to vote to make the tax cuts for the middle class permanent, yet still claim they are for middle class tax cuts. Cheney pointed this out in the debate with Edwards. Bush should have done the same to Kerry.
The democrats had better start looking for some people with those qualities, and stop pandering to the far left of their constituency, before they find themselves without a chance of even organizing a Filibuster that can't be voted down. Not to mention possessing the keys to the White House would not be surprised to see some of the moderate democrats from the South break away from the extreme liberals who now set their agenda. Tom Daschle and Nancy Pelosi have taken their Party so far to the left, that I doubt they can recover. When Nancy Pelosi takes to the Microphone, whatever is left of the Communists across the Globe must stand up and cheer
How can you reason with a creed that exalts death?
I get angry when innocents are hurt or killed. I get incensed when it's children. *sadly* I just don't understand.
Kerry did say in this last debate that he met with all the members of the UN Security Council the week before we went into Iraq [shades of his meetings in Paris 35 years ago].
No one called him on that. What was his 'authority' for doing so?
Did he really meet with them, or is this another fabrication? Kerry has been caught telling so many whoppers, fibs, lies, that one has to question each thing he says.
Saw a joke somewhere about Pelosi - next facelift and she will have a goatee!
John Kerry is so skinny he has to tease his hair to keep his panties up.
I just see it as a great photo op for Kerry.
This is the salute that POS(Kerry) will get from our brave troopers.
You nailed that quite well.
The democrats will do what political parties do, though. When the message is unpalatable to "the unwashed masses", they tweak the message until they are acceptable again. However, it's not so much the message that worries me, it's the core-beliefs, ie "The U.S. is at fault for everything".
I'm a middle-class white male, and frankly, I'm tired of everything being my fault.
Okay, I promise not to whine anymore.
I read the transcripts again and I could not find anything that he said he went to iraq. He said he went to Kyoto, perhaps that is what you meant
One time she tried to blink and her boob hit her in the eye.
"KERRY: I didn't say necessarily the Kurds. There are other members of the opposition. There are people who are outside the country prepared to go in. There are others inside the country. And I believe -- I mean, I was in Safwan. I went there when the signing of the armistice took place at the end of the war."
I read that Kerry even took the press with him one day to buy a jock strap for Gosh sakes. So you know if he was ever visiting the troops at any hospital there would have been pictures.
I thought I heard Kerry say in an interview (right after he locked up the primaries wins to ensure his nomination) several months ago that he had gone to Iraq.
Oh that is a different transcript. I meant the one from the debate
Oh, this is from a transcript of Kerry's interview by O'Reilly in 2001, sometime after 9-11, which was replayed on FoxNews recently.
