Skip to comments.Powerlineblog.org: We Just Got A Tip (Breaking Story on Kerry?)
Posted on 10/23/2004 9:53:20 AM PDT by freespirited
We just got a tip......that a major newspaper will break a front-page story Monday morning that could create a serious problem for the Kerry campaign. We don't yet have any details, but it relates to a foreign policy issue, and it will call into question--amazingly enough--John Kerry's truthfulness.
We'll watch for the story Sunday night and post it as soon as it becomes available.
Where does the tip come from?
Is it reliable?
Philosophical question for the forum: when is a tip not a tip?
I thought that everybody was waiting for Thursday to dump their dirt.
Oh yes, can't wait to hear what it is!
I have no idea who would run it.
A little "gun shy" after the stolen honor bait and switch.
When you stiff the waitress.
IF it's true, then I bet it'll be something about Kerry's discharge after having aided and comforted the North Vietnamese in Paris.
The only two that I would consider "major" that would do it would be "New York Post" or "Washington Times" -- I just hope this is as big as Powerline is hinting at -- I have been waiting impatiently for the October surprise that Karl Rove promised when he was interviewed by Sean Hannity.
Possibility: Kerry had direct contact with other heads of state to undermine our Iraq operation.
You know, his discussions with "other foreign leaders who want me to win."
No way! We all know Kerry's a paragon of truthfullness. < /sarcasm >
Powerline is a great blog, so I believe them. As far as a paper goes, it certainly won't be the NYSlime.
I heard a rumor about the Kerry's paying SS tax on only one domestic employee, although they employ dozens.
When you can't take it to the bank.
Powerline Blog. Same Blog that picked up Buckhead's post.
Mama T is carrying Jaques Chirac's love child.
That does not narrow it down very much.
Well, that was certainly enlightening.
Well the revelation that he praised the Afghan operation when it was going on on Larry King, and its contrast with his complete 180 on that issue now should have made some news.
I hope someone at the Bush campaign and RNC have plans to use this in an ad. It could be just as embarrassing for Kerry as his "I actually voted for the 87 billion, before I voted against it."
Just an unsubstantiated rumor, mind you, but my husband heard something big was going to break on Sunday (tomorrow). Take it with a grain of salt, but it could be related to post #1.
When it's just an end.
You know, these rumors are really annoying.
Telegraphing your punches reduces their effectiveness,
as Sinclair discovered (assuming they ever really had
any intention of running the full POW movie).
The Kerry Kamp now has 48 hours or more to pre-spin,
dilute and sic lawyers on this story.
If you've got a solid info critical of Kerry, just run it.
Like Tuco said:
"When you have to shoot - shoot, don't talk."
Could this be what we were waiting for?
That'll really rock the campaign. (But then Bush will say that he honors his opponent's sincerity, and such questions shouldn't be raised, and they'll go away within 36 hours.)
I would guess the Wahington Times.
Kerry doesn't have a foreign policy and hasn't for over 20 years. His last foreign policy was to slander all Vietnam Vets.
Let me guess: The Washington Times, The NY Post, or perhaps any of the other right-of-center newspapers that have a hard time getting noticed by the MSM? I mean, I'll read it and most of the people here on FreeRepublic will read it, but it will be buried elsewhere. Sorry if I'm feeling a little cynical - just getting too worried about this election.
Acceptable behavior for Democrats.
Well, we know he has lots of connections in France and we know that they have had many reasons to go against US.
Also, we know that Kerry sent a letter to Iran when he became the Dem candidate and said he would want to establish relations asap.. There has also been the story of the Iran-Americans in court that have given a LOT of money to Kerry's campaign.
Just a couple to throw out there.
One thing it might be would refer to a previous catch I had some months back, when Kerry spoke before the racial correspondents' convention, he stated that he had met with the UN Security Council the week before the Senate vote on the Iraq war (when he'd actually spent that time campaigning in Iowa, as I recall). I noted he made the same (erroneous) claim during the presidential debates.
What was the Stolen Honor bait and switch? I thought that was running?
Hopefully it also has to do with his less than honorable discharge...MSM has had this story for weeks and they're sitting on it!!
Drudge is the news breaker. If it will be in a newspaper, Drudge will run it first.
I got a major tip... breaking hard.... will report soon.... has to do with Kerry's personal life..... good source....
If the press had caught Clinton raping his daughter at high noon in the Rose Garden, they would have either pretended they didn't see it or spun it so she was "asking for it".
At this point, the media has way too much invested in electing Kerry to report anything that would sink his election.
Sunday siren bump.
If conservatives have any october surprises they have to run them now because the MSM will only run DNC surprises at the last minute.
I was about to ignore the entire thread until you mentioned the Buckhead post.
Thanks! I'll be waiting, but it sure as hell won't be in my Boston Globe..
Thank God for FR.
I find it hard to believe that John Kerry's truthfulness will be called into question. He's been lying for so long now and hasn't been questioned. Nothing has changed.
