WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A top House Democrat called for a swift U.S. withdrawal from Iraq on Thursday amid a White House counteroffensive against allegations that the Bush administration misled the country over prewar intelligence. CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer spoke with Sen. John Kerry -- the Massachusetts Democrat who lost to President Bush in last year's election -- beginning by asking about the president recently quoting Kerry's prewar comments on Saddam Hussein. "I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a threat, and a grave threat, to our security," the president quoted Kerry saying, in part. BLITZER: You firmly believed that, going into the war -- that's why you voted for that resolution? KERRY: Providing he had those weapons, and providing -- which the president didn't quote, as he distorted again to America our position and the truth -- providing that he did the other things, which are: a follow-through on the inspections; not go unilaterally; build a legitimate coalition; plan carefully and go as a last resort. All of which the president said he would do; none of which he did do. The record is now clear. So I said in that very same speech, which the president did not quote, that if you proceeded too rapidly, if you didn't do the things I just described, you could make a volatile region more dangerous, you could attract more terrorists and you would make America less secure, not more. The president needs to stop being selective, and he needs to start to level with the American people. That speech on Friday, on Veterans Day -- a sacred day for veterans, which was a political-attack day for the president -- was not an honest speech.

A happy place, where the clouds are fluffy and pink...
The burning suburbs of Gay Paree, Ketchup Boy?
I believe the gaunt gigolo from Massachussetts meant "Different position".
That basturd would have us in hell!
Down the toilet!
I would tend to agree with Kerry. He would have us in a different place, probably under Communist China like Bill Clinton tried to do.
This from the guy who accused his fellow servicemen of rape and war crimes. The same guy who met with the North Vietnamese in Paris, while still a Naval officer..
To me, one of the most disturbing things about modern America is that this traitor (who was thumbing his nose at the law and the chain of command, secretly meeting with the enemy while wearing a uniform) has any stature at all, let alone being the presidential nominee of a major party.
Over at the Fonda residence...
Shut up john f'n kerry. You're meaningless.
Oh, look at me! I'm making people happy! I'm the Magical Man from Happy-Land, in a gumdrop house on Lollipop Lane!
If I were King
I often wish I were a King,
And then I could do anything.
If only I were King of Spain,
I'd take my hat off in the rain.
If only I were King of France,
I wouldn't brush my hair for aunts.
I think, if I were King of Greece,
I'd push things off the mantelpiece.
If I were King of Norroway,
I'd ask an elephant to stay.
If I were King of Babylon,
I'd leave my button gloves undone.
If I were King of Timbuctoo,
I'd think of lovely things to do.
If I were King of anything,
I'd tell the soldiers, "I'm the King!"
