Skip to comments.John Kerry's downfall
Posted on 06/27/2005 6:10:31 AM PDT by bitt
While visiting friends recently in East Rutherford, N.J. -- the Land of No Left Turns where drivers who cut you off give you dirty looks -- I heard what must be the most astounding assessment of why John Kerry lost his bid for president.
Forget the polls and the debates and the senator's not-so-Swift boat military service in Vietnam. Mr. Kerry lost to George W. Bush because the man from Massachusetts is simply too darn smart. Wow!
There's no denying Kerry's intelligence. Otherwise the senator never would have gotten as far as he has.
But to suggest that Kerry's mental acumen somehow transgressed voters' ability to grasp his campaign for the White House -- and see through it -- is to imply that we live in a nation of nincompoops.
People aren't idiots, nor do they tolerate being played for fools. Treat them as such, and you'll pay dearly. John Kerry did.
Much to the chagrin of Kerry kiss-ups or those supporters still in denial months after the election, Americans most certainly did get Kerry. That was his downfall.
For starters, Sen. Long Face had the all the persona of an oak tree. Even under the best of circumstances -- and with the mainstream media gushing about him at every opportunity -- Kerry simply didn't connect with people. Even when he tried to loosen up it was painful to watch.

The evidence is in that the President and the Senator are roughly equal in raw mental ability.
John Kerry is a pathological liar and is uncomfortable around other human beings - that's why he lost.
I think another reason why he lost is that he never gave concrete answers to anything. It was always, "I have a plan." Sheesh, how many times did he use that line but never say what the dang plan was?
Kerry lost for one basic reason: lack of character.
Please, he was too bright? His grades were worse than W's and his military intelligence score was lower. Just because he is a liberal does not mean he is smarter.
"Squeeek Squeeeak... I have a spinter! Where is my purple heart? Squeeeeak squeeeeeak! Vietnam vets rape, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones squeeeeak ....squeeeeeak to human genitals and turned up the power, squeeeeak ....squeeeeeak they cut off limbs, blow up bodies, squeeeeak ....squeeeeeak randomly shoot at civilians, raze villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan...squeeeeak ....squeeeeeak..."
Kerry got where he is because of his connections with Fat Ted and the Kennedy family. Smart?? Hardly-- unless you think all Gigolo's are smart.
Kerry testified before Congress that he committed atrocities/war crimes, and accused many others of the same. Now, sub the name Bush for kerry in the previous sentence, and tell us if he would ever have been in ploitics much got elected.?? Would these same people be looing the other way? Why isn't kerry in Levenworth?
Define American patriotism and compassion:
1. Heinz-Kerry donates $4million to Andy Warhol museum.
2. Sean Hannity raises $4million for college scholarships for children of U.S military killed in service.
Value for Value!
I wonder if John Kerry is a card-carrying member of the ACLU? Betcha he is.
Kerry's only "concrete answer" was "a global test" for U.S. national security procedures. There is nothing intelligent about Red-Book-brainwashed zombie John Kerry.
I did and warned that Bush was not a true conservative well before the 2000 election.
Kerry lost because he was a LIAR, a TRAITOR AND A BIG PHONY!
His whole life is phony. He's a smug, condescending, narcissistic, self-righteous phony married to a fruitcake weirdo.
Of course,...that's just my opinion,....I could be wrong.
But I don't think so.
Disaffected Democrats voted in droves for Reagan and in Bush's last election increasing numbers of Blacks and Latinos left the Democratic Party. The shrill leftist crowd that will nominate Hillary in 2008 will again fail to connect with the majority of voters unless the Republicans nominate another dud.
Give me a break. Kerry is a treasonous, elitist, pro UN, anti American, do nothing senator, who came darn close to winning that election. - tom
Can we please stop posting this stuff...the MSM is going to drop another Surprise...and we all know that Kerry is a strong finisher. </pre-election paranoia>
""Who knew that "compassionate conservatism" would be an excuse for unbridled federal spending? "
I did and warned that Bush was not a true conservative well before the 2000 election."
Let me interject something here. The reason Kerry lost was because he had no social agenda(Bush took it away from him with his "unbridled federal spending") and REpublicans are always better than Democrats when it comes to foreign policy, especially during war.
This unbridled federal spending came as a response to inheriting a recession and the attack of 9/11. Bush was forced to spend us out of the recession rather than tax us out as Al Gore would have done if he won his home state in 2000.
That is the bottom line. Bush already implemented cuts for 2005 and the libs complained. The economy is now strong and the deficit has come down significantly.
Your comparison of Kerry to a rat is odious. In science, rats are very useful creatures.
You can be one smart.
But not too smart.
Who's John Kerry?
Too smart? What a laugh. What a stretch. What a desperate attempt by liberals to rationalize defeat.
"Do you know who I am? squeeeak squeeeak! I`m rat sKerry! Squeeeak! My gaurdian rat is a SOB! squeeeak! squeeeeak! He made me fall down the garbage heap in front of the press! squeeeeak squeeeeak! I voted to cut the cheese before I voted against cutting the cheese! squeeeak squeeeak!"
I always thought his photographer was a Republican. Why else would there be so many awful pictures of him?
The whole Kerry family is nuts.
The smartest man in America loses.
The smartest woman in America, who FAILED THE DC BAR EXAM, Hillary Rob'em Clinton will be next.
'Can we please stop posting this stuff'........
giggle..it's a COMPULSION! to make sure we have enough ammo for the next round.....

for MASSACHUSETTS fun, go to Howie Carr's websites:
'squeek, squeek, Lovey, where's my CHEESE, you know I love my CHEESE with a little merlot after I come home in your SUV from a hard day windsurfing with the carpenter and the plumber...squeek..."
That first picture, doesn`t it look he`s holding that pose for the press? "Let me put on my macho pose."
