John Kerry, Doofus-in-Chief.
Kerry asks, "Where's the Beef?
We need a Haavaad Professor to tell us this? What kind of a name is "Barry" for a Haavaad Professor, anyway? Do real professors actually use big words like "stuff"?
The next pronouncement by the learned gentlemen will be that tuition rates will be going up. "Stuff" happens, you know.
Kerry would have no mandate, no majority in either house, and no personal charisma. If he couldn't get anything of his through the Senate as a Senator, how's he going to do it as President?
Gerry Ford had more juice as POTUS than this guy would. We'll just have to call Kerry "Placeholder of the United States".
I hope there aren't any Freepers out there wasting tens of thousands of dollars a year on tuition for their kid so that he/she can learn how to say "stuff".
Have you watched that video of Richard Holbrooke and Wes Clarke meeting with the KLA on behalf of Kerry? This isn't going to matter once this gets out.
"From his ambitious health-care proposal to his pledges to add 40,000 troops to the military and 10 million jobs to the economy, Kerry has a multitude of multi-pointed plans, and he talks optimistically about making them reality"
$1.5 Trillion in new spending, massive tax increases to fund it, and a resulting slowing economy will not create 10 million new jobs. Kerry's spending will be largely money down the rat hole, with ever increasing health care costs and declining access and quality, as apposed to allowing American's to keep their hard earned pay. Add to that his anti-corporate, anti-capitalist agenda of onerous regulation, and burdensome and ultimately inflationary tax increases, and you can forget just about any new jobs.
Corporate tax loopholes? Gone "in a nanosecond," says Kerry. The Bush administration's new overtime regulations? Reversed on Day One, says running mate John Edwards (news - web sites)."
How Kerry expects to keep jobs here with his plans of tax increases, massive increases in regulation and employee health care costs, and the idiocy of the "Kyoto Accords" is beyond me. Look for an exodus of corporations offshore, scaling back of plans of foreign corporation's investment in plants in the US, and the steep decline of the Auto Industry in the US.
"Landy's shorthand description of Kerry's approach to Iraq: "Bush without the swagger," following through on U.S. commitments while trying to get more support from other nations. But Landy said Kerry will be under intense pressure because many of his supporters simply want America to get out. "Even John Kerry doesn't know what do about that, because it's such a nasty choice," Landy said."
Kerry hasn't a clue what to do about the war on terror. His term in office will be an unmitigated disaster. If we survive 4 years of his weakness and vacillation, we will be in such a terrible strategic position, that a Republican President will have almost nothing to work with by 2008. I have no confidence that Kerry will do anything aggressive or proactive as he has "said" he would do. Why believe a proven liar?
I mean this most sincerely: God help us if this happens. <shudder>
Ya know, a couple of Dem friends of mine told me awhile back that they were opposed to Bush because "he lied and I don't like liars". They both said the same thing, virtually word-for-word. At the time, I just let them rant.
However, since then, there has been a plethora of evidence proving that Bush didn't lie: the 9/11 Commission being the most important among them.
Funny thing, though, my liberal friends have laid low ever since. If they don't like liars, I can't help but wonder why they will vote for Kerry. I know that the facts that have been released about Bush have no bearing on them. but I would love to be a neuron in their brains for a day to try to understand how they think.
Because, after all, they don't like liars. But, they'll vote for Kerry. Go figure.
