Skip to comments.KERRY CAMP'S FINAL FUMBLE
Posted on 10/28/2004 12:13:54 AM PDT by kattracks
ONCE again, John Kerry shows his instinct to go for the capillaries, rather than the jugular.
Kerry has embraced the dubious New York Times/CBS accusations about U.S. bungling permitting the theft of explosives from an ammunition dump in Iraq. The senator has chosen to predicate the entire final week of his campaign on the unsolvable mystery of what happened to the bomb-making material in the chaos surrounding the invasion of Iraq.
By stepping up to bat and running an ad in which he speaks directly into the camera in an effort to win votes over the issue, Kerry has made the dubious journalistic accusations his own and bet his credibility and his candidacy on the outcome.
How will we ever know when the explosives were removed from Al-Qaqaa and by whom? How can we tell if they were taken away by Saddam's minions before or after he fell from power, before or after the United States troops had passed by the dump? We can't, any more than we can tell who did what in the jungles of Vietnam 30 years ago.
Because we can't know the final truth of Al-Qaqaa, it was a ridiculous decision by the Kerry campaign to jump with all four feet onto the issue. When Kerry should be scoring aggressive points, he will find himself debating the fine questions of who did what in Iraq in the frenzied days of late March and early April of 2003.

All four feet!
I hate the way this Traitor is once again go after the troops. he has no respect for our military.
sKerry has a terminal case of foot-in-mouth disease.
Great line Morris.
The MSM embarrassed themselves again----good show.
I don't think Kerry expected to be hit over the head with his diversion so quickly, though.
Bill Gertz is reporting in the Washington Times that the Russians and Iraqi intelligence transported the explosives out of the Iraq.
That's one nice rope the left is weaving to hang themselves with.
I swear to goodness that just before the war started I read the Russians were in Iraq.
"We've been waiting since 1918 for the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series, and . . . if I had a choice between the White House and the World Series this year, I'm going to take the White House. How's that?"
John Kerry, 08/2004.
Great point. Kerry has lagged behind on the war issue and he's not going to suddenly close the gap in a few days. Instead of drawing attention to those issues where he holds a lead, trying to change the subject, he is basically saying "OK, I'll admit the issue I'm weak on is THE important issue."
Kerry has made more mistakes in the last few weeks as the lead idiot of the DNC than he's made in his entire career as a traitor, socialist, practioner of sedition ,last of the fancy ball room dancers and CEO of the Liberal Losers Liars Club .........
And according to polls and the MSM he has half the nation supporting him ?
BS flag is at full mast on this turdburgler and his clan of assclowns !
John-John takes a header into the cow pie.....
Funny thing, Senator. I strongly suspect that God put that exact choice before the people of New England...the Sox winning the Series, or you winning the election. And...well, you know which one they picked.
soooo true! Do you think there's any cure? I think not -- not at this last stage in the disease.
And why do you think his mother had to say 3 times "integrity" on her deathbed to a man in his mid-50's. Who knows a son better than his mother? I talk a lot and if my mother were going to give me advice it would be: listen, listen, listen. John Kerry is constantly giving himself away -- in his arrogance, he doesn't even see it. Hugh Hewitt today said that by Kerry's actions he is alarming people. And we should all be alarmed, for the behavior he displays is not the behavior of a well man, but a man with a severe pathology. I am not kidding!!
I love the way you talk to us! Great prose!!
The word "terminal" means there is not possibility of a cure.... :)
Oh yeah, sKerry is sick alright. He is a sociopath, which is defined as a lack of conscience. He will do ANYTHING to further his own agenda. He has absolutely NO shame.
Squantos writes the Quote of the day:
"last of the fancy ball room dancers and CEO of the Liberal Losers Liars Club ......... ".
Got to hand to Lurch's advisors, they performed beautifully in this. Beautifully for whom is the question.
Because we can't know the final truth of Al-Qaqaa
And that is why Kerry is using it, just as he did
the Winter Soldier investigations.
Yep, its on freerepublic and has been discussed tonight. Top ex-generals and other military folk from Russia were in Baghdad and recieved honors from the Iraqi defense ministry for their work.
"We can't, any more than we can tell who did what in the jungles of Vietnam 30 years ago."
This is the key. Kerry's actions in the final days of the campaign remind us all of his true character. Once again, he's attacking our military and leaders for allegedly mismanaging a war. Like the "genghis khan" and "village burning" charges of 1971, these can't be proven by direct evidence, and are based on the speculations of partisans with an agenda. We need to remind voters of Kerry's troubling pattern of always blaming America's fighting men and leaders for doing their jobs. Vietnam, Latin America, and now Iraq. John Kerry, always on the attack -- against America.
Were these news stories from just tonight or reposts from before the war. I read that about the Russians just before the war started--I remember it.
These reports were from before the start of the war. Here is one:
Start reading at "Russia Hid Saddam's WMDs."
Kerry's friends in the Axis of Weasels strike again. That's not gonna go over real well in flyover country...
Lurch's problem is this story broke a week earlier than planned so there was enough time for this phony Al-Qaqaa story to be refuted. Kerry stepped in Al-Qaqaa because the story was full of Qaqaa.
hanoi john is a day late and a dollar short. he is so tone deaf that he continued to pound the issue as we were debunking it.
"Of course you can trust me on Al-Qaqaa, just like you can trust Dan Rather on his National Guard Documents."
"Please don't bring me into this, I tried to help you, and see what I get."
"Obviously, Kerry puts his faith in the NYT and UN over the US Military."
Unless he's pulling a Torch before noon, I doubt that'll be his last fumble.
Too late to pull a Torch. I will admit that I was worried about this scenario just before the first debate.
Hmmmm. Maybe Rove is such an evil genius that they had the President tank the first debate intentionally, to get the Donks to commit to Kerry. Yeah, that's the ticket! It was all strategery!
No doubt W is a fine poker player. I'd love to see him at the final table on WPT. Nevertheless, my conspiracy tin foil tells me the Clintonistas subversives (hey, that's redundant) made sure Lurch bit into this extremely hard.
I was wondering this morning how long it takes for an Ad to be produced, even a simple one like the one Kerry put out on this subject.
Somedays I just get on a rant and get kerried away !
Our country is in grave danger from within by attacks on our electoral process and disinformational spin'n shineola medicne shows put on by socialist democrats and their presstitute handlers.
I fear not the terrorist with a weapon as they are a real an visable threat. IMHO the greater threat to our republic are polidiots such as J. F'n Kerry and company whos back door dark of night sedition is boiling the frog slowly per se.
Win or lose Tuesday our nation is in trouble and we have to go after every socialist regime from local dog catcher to distant dictator every day of our lives. It's not a task that can be put off for three and a half years.
Just like taking out the trash it has to be done every day or we find ourselves neck deep in stink.
Just my opinion of course.....:o)
Stay safe !
The Bush strategy of calling him irresponsible is effective at winning votes, but a more aggressive approach is needed. Beyond winning votes, there is a need to remove the incentive for an attack. It has to be made clear that Kerry is giving aid and comfort to the enemy, and therefore encouraging attacks (whether he is collaborating again or not). Cheney was right on this one.
Any pending ads on Kerry's past history of collaboration should be released immediately. If delayed until election eve, such ads could be displaced by coverage of a terrorist attack.
I don't know, but it sounds like he had this one in his back pocket ready to pull out and shoot with. One thing about shooting bullets though: Once you shoot the bullet, you can't put the bullet back in the gun.
You are correct, Clee1 - none, zilch, nada, zero. The man has no soul -- just look at his scary eyes.
Sorry, Kerry, you got the World Series. And since you claimed Sox owners were in fantasyland like Republicans, I don't know that you can really claim you "won" that either.
