*****************************

From:

Senator Kerry re-fighting the 2004 election

**********************************

On Wednesday, Senator John Kerry gave a speech at Georgetown University and called for U.S. forces to be withdrawn from Iraq over the holiday season. In addition he made several other comments that warrant a response, including his attempt to blame the Bush administration for his vote in the Senate to authorize the use of force against the Saddam Hussein regime.

Now contrast Kerry's insinuation that the Bush administration misled Congress, with that of former Democratic representative Dick Gephardt, who was asked if he was misled in November 2003.

Kerry simply refuses to accept responsibility for his vote to authorize the use of force, a mild inconvienence in his attempts to portray himself as an anti-war candidate. One would be hard pressed to find a single politician in the United States that put forth a more incoherent and conflicting view of Iraq over the last ten years than Senator Kerry, who proclaimed on CNN's Larry King in 2001 that the war on terror "doesn't end with Afghanistan by any imagination. Terrorism is a global menace. It's a scourge. And it is absolutely vital that we continue, for instance, Saddam Hussein."

    Kerry's speech amounts to an assembly of his talking points over the last three years and contains far more bluster than reality. One example is Kerry's attempt to praise the coalition built during the 1990 Persian Gulf War by saying that this administration "could have learned from George Herbert Walker Bush and built a genuine global coalition, they chose not to." Oh by the way, Senator Kerry voted against that "genuine global coalition" in 1990, so the idea of him now propping it up as the standard is more than amusing. Naturally Kerry find the intellectual dishonesty to file all of these criticisms under the umbrella of "tough questions."

    What this speech essentially boils down to is John Kerry's attempt to refight the 2004 election, which was largely a referendum on Iraq that he did not win.

"speaks from his heart"?

He has no heart from which to speak.

The country and the Congress were misled into war. I regret that we were not given the truth; as I said more than a year ago, knowing what we know now, I would not have gone to war in Iraq. And knowing now the full measure of the Bush Administration’s duplicity and incompetence, I doubt there are many members of Congress who would give them the authority they abused so badly."

In other words John you made a mistake. In other words John you were misled by someone with, according to you, no brain. In other words John you are incompetent.

Even luckier that he didn't show up for any senate sessions two years prior to his coronation as the Democrat to get Bushwhacked.

I have a plan. Vietnam. I voted for it before I voted against it. Did I mention I had a plan? I plan I devised while serving as a War Hero in Vietnam. Plan. Nam. This president doesn't care about plans or Vietnam. Hero. Viet. Lesbian.

John O’Neill of Swift Boat Vets knows
that hanoi kerry is NOT done with his campaign.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1496625/posts

Oct 4th 2005, NOT 2004!

Q) Why are some "Move On FReepers" convinced they know more than John O’Neill and other vets.

"...Like most of you, I believed our mission was over. We could all move on with our lives, return to our families and homes secure in the knowledge we had done the right thing for America, and for our children’s future.

Regrettably, that has not been the case for a distinguished group of Vietnam combat veterans who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with us during last year’s campaign. Their situation has become so critical that I felt compelled to break our long silence to inform you of this urgent matter..."


John O’Neill
Houston, Texas



Q) Why do some "Move On FReepers" think they know more than Karl Rove?

Karl Rove knew, Nov. 7, 2004 , that hanoi kerry would try to run in '08
and knew Swift Boat Vet's would be called upon,
again, to serve our country.

Rove Credits Swiftvets With 'Energizing' Bush Vote (Thank You Karl Rove!)

Q) Why do some "Move On FReepers" think it is ok for hanoi kerry remain in the US Senate, even though they know he is there illegally, per
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3
http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.amendmentxiv.html

Q) "Move On FReepers" "swore" klintoon, hitlery, hanoi kerry, sanbdi ber(bur)glar, al bore, jane beno,
would be prosecuted for
pardongate, chinagate, the bribes in upstate NY in the 2000 NY Senate race, waco, etc, etc,
"when" the "time was right".

The only parade this slime ball should be connected to is parading around in endless circles in Leavenworth with a ball and chain, for known acts of treason.

Yeah caught that and was walking through the living room and I literally did a double take..."Did he just say that?" LOL. Britt IS DA MAN! I JUST LOVE HIM. He is so smart and professional and then says something so calmly that just cracks me up.

The Kerry Snake is slithering again. My warning after the election was "If you don't cut off its head, it will continue to be dangerous." This turd really thinks he is going to run for Pres again. He still makes absolutely NO sense when he is talking.

Last night on Special Report with Brit Hume, Brit said Kerry wanted for MORE troops (before the war), before he wanted fewer troops. I just love Brit, he sees the truth and tells it.
