President has heard enough from `junior senator'
Boston Herald ^ | 2/16/05 | Andrew Miga

Posted on 02/16/2005 3:34:51 PM PST by bitt

'WASHINGTON - Sen. John F. Kerry's brash offer to meet privately with former foe President Bush [related, bio] to discuss foreign policy before Bush's meetings abroad next week with key European leaders has apparently fallen on deaf ears at the White House.

``We've offered to have Sen. Kerry (D-Mass.) meet with President Bush to discuss his trip to Iraq, if the White House is interested,'' Kerry spokesman David Wade said yesterday. ``There are many areas where genuine bipartisanship would make a difference in leading our country forward, whether in national security or children's health care.''

The White House declined comment on Kerry's recent overture.

A senior Kerry aide telephoned White House Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr. earlier this month to make the meeting offer, a source confirmed.

But as of last night, Kerry had not received any response from the White House.

Sign your SF 180, Clown! You didn't have a Foreign Policy plan during your campaign...why would anyone believe you have one now?

Oh, wait! I just remembered! You DO have a plan; the USA goes belly up to anyone that challenges us!

This is presumptuous indeed, considering that in the long list of weak areas for Senator Kerry, foreign policy may well be his weakest area of all.

Kerry is making the obvious mistake of assuming that Dubya needs the advice of tratiors such as Hanoi John as to how to conduct foreign policy. The voters rejected that presumptuous foolishness last November. Kerry should continue his career of advising the Vietnamese communists and leaving patriots alone.

The title is an exmple of sensationalism in the least, an outright lie at worst. The closest thing to the title in the article was an unnamed 'senior strategist with close ties' referring to the senator as a 'junior senator'.

Name one so called MAIN Stream Right Wing Media
personality that has asked,

in 2005,

these questions?

"Asked Kerry when he will sign Form 180.

Or why Kerry is still in the US Senate.
This is in violation of
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3

Or when Kerry will set the record straight
on his false testimony in April 71"

BUT he's still attacking President Bush in '05

Y'know, the more Kerry tries to set himself up as some sort of Democratic shadow President, the more other Democrats with designs on becoming President are going to resent him.

Bush should meet with him, with the TV cameras rolling, and hand him a Form 180 to sign. Right there. Challenge him to do what he promised.

Don't have the source but I've seen the reports. Apparently, it surfaced when TerAYsahhh was speaking at some event. Just Heinz, no Kerry. I recall too that was the way it was before the candidacy...

``We've offered to have Sen. Kerry (D-Mass.) meet with President Bush to discuss his trip to Iraq, if the White House is interested,''

That's one of the most presumptuous things I've ever heard.

And where's the Form 180 you told Timmy Russert you would sign.

Has anyone in his inner circle clued in this bozo to the fact that he LOST the election?

Once a dork, always a dork.

Like I said, once a dork, always a dork.

John, you're still looking for love in all the wrong places.

Sorry, John. Bill's got a thing for that hot young skirt down the hall.

John, John, John. What do I have to do to make it clear I'm interested in chicks, and you don't qualify.

But Bill, I'm so cute. I've got these cute pink lips. Heck, I'm even making overtures to that cowboy in the WH. Ya gotta love me, Bill. Ya just gotta.

Kerry should instead be interrogated by the CIA in a small airless room as to his conversations with the 'leaders' of the Palestinians and Syria. Then they can convey to the President exactly WHAT impressions this creepy Senator left the enemy with.

Why would President Bush need to hear "kiss the arse of the French and Germans til it hurts and give all of the leaders anything they want?" Would be a complete waste of President Bush's time to hear that as we already know that's what Kerry considers good foreign policy.
