Cokie Roberts Blames Michael Moore
newsmax.com ^ | 12/19/04 | unknown

Former "This Week" host and National Public Radio veteran Cokie Roberts blamed conspiracy filmmaker Michael Moore on Sunday for causing Sen. John Kerry to lose the presidential election.

"I think Michael Moore actually had a very major impact - a negative impact - on the Democratic Party," Roberts told NBC's "Chris Matthews Show."

"I think he exemplified all of the things that people hate about Democrats. And the fact that he was - it was a hate-America-first campaign and that hurts the Democrats every time."

Adding insult to injury, Roberts also contended that Moore's "physical appearance did not help."

Its not like it was Kerry's fault he lost the election. Kerry could have told Moore to pound sand instead of sitting him next to Carter at the DNC convention.

Mostly everything but being in office, thank you.

Like the tendency to blame someone else for one's actions? LOL. That's funny, so did John Kerry.

Moore must have known Cokie was going to smoke him, he shaved and cleaned up for the Tonight Show.

Fatboy sure didn't help them.

But, Cokie sweetheart, how 'bout your fellow newsie Dan Rather? Any opinion about how HE might have hurt your cause or do you think he helped?

Did you hear Michael Moore say that if it wasn't for him, Kerry wouldn't have gotten the votes that he did get.

While I certainly don't think Moore helped, the fact is that Kerry lost because he was a lousy candidate who waffled constantly and stood for nothing, and he was up against a candidate who took a firm stand and left little or no doubt about where he stood. Most people want a president who came make a damn decision and that clearly was NOT Kerry.

"...sitting him next to Carter at the DNC convention.

That alone cost them a ton of votes, IMO.

And what was he wearing at the time? Didn't he have his baseball hat on?

Yep, the #1 thing Americans hate about Democrats is that fact that Democrats hate America.
