The Real John Kerry Finally Stands Up [Atomic Barf Alert!]
CBS News ^ | April 24, 2006 | By Dotty Lynch

Posted on 04/24/2006 5:38:43 AM PDT by johnny7

Kerry has the opportunity to lead a movement once again... by rallying a very angry public to force a change in policy. Richard Nixon worried about Kerry's potential as a leader back in the 70s; maybe the new Kerry will finally prove him right.

John Kerry came to national attention not because he was a war hero but because he was a dissenter. In 1971, he appeared on "The Dick Cavett Show," testified before Congress, and electrified anti-war rallies with his message that the war was wrong. His phrase, "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?" was used for years to define his commitment and eloquence.

I missed it in the article. What was, is or will be the his "plan?" How is what he is doing different or new? What did Nixon have to do with it again? Dissent is patriotism? Is that the point of the article? Since Kerry is finally and completely dissenting, he is "more" patriotic than he was during the presidential race?

John Kerry is a broken electronic clock, and he's flashing 88:88, so actually his broken clock isn't right twice a day.

It's the real John Kerry, no doubt about it.

"Sociologist Todd Gitlin in a new book, "The Intellectuals and the Flag" argues that the intellectual left must take back the flag in order to reclaim power. He argues that especially since 9/11, what intellectuals must make clear is that they are patriots. Gitlin also says intellectuals must do more than dissent and should sharpen values and "sketch visions" for the public on where American democracy should go."

I'm beginning to think all the leftists in education aren't a bad thing. Forget that they've dumbed down blacks, they've also dumbed down their own. The rest of us just refuse to be that stupid. They're busy sharpening their values and sketching visions and as far as taking back the flag?

Don't make me laugh.

Has Kerry actually ever 'lead' anything? I think I heard he tried to start a cookie company once, but other than that failure he has never had executive responsibility for anything. IMO a Kerry presidency would be four years of confusion, inconsistency, mixed messages, and avoidance of responsibility .... much like the Clinton administration was.

If former Pres Nixon was worried about Kerry - it proves he was smarter than a whole bunch of others. Have we always had RINOS?

We should be promoting Kerry and not knocking him. Same with Gore. Hillary, Kerry and Gore need to go at it head to head. They can all outlib each other and spend millions doing it. Basically, wipe out all their accounts so they have nothing for the General election.

So, she's saying we dodged electing a man who understood himself so little that he didn't know who he is?

Or was he lying to himself about who he is?

Or did he lie to all of us about his true nature? 

Any way you cut it, that headline is an unintentional slam in my book.

"Yes, indeed- John Kerry thinks it's 1971 all over again. Dec 04 '05, on "Face the Nation"
John Kerry once again slams American troops- Check it out-

"And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the-of-the historical customs, religious customs."

Click Here for the transcript for "Face the Nation"

You will find this statement at the bottom of page 4 and the top of page 5.

This has got to be the most hilarious headline I've seen for quite a while.

Considering the source, I guess it's fake but accurate.

The real sKerry always stood up and he was always a phony.

I can just imagine Dotty at the keyboard with Jefferson Airplane going in the background, "Got a revolution, got to revolution". Ah, those were golden days, Dotty. At least, in your imagination.

Today, Limbaugh quiped about an earlier story on how 'Ol Horseface' never attends Senate defense briefings... and now we know why. Because he was getting what he wanted through leaks.

Miserable poltroon.

I Love the "War is Wrong" bend on the story. Where do they go into the part where he accused soldiers of killing children, raping women and beheading innocents. The whole story is so white-washed that it is hard to recognize. Even after the entire nation has heard of the Winter Soldier Hearings (despite efforts by the MSM to prevent that scenario) the MSM keeps coming up with the "War-hero, dissenter" spin. The MSM is living in a fantasy world where they believe that as long as they refuse to report something then it can't really be true!

Kerry may be reflecting a new boldness on the part of liberals to come out and say what they believe and to reclaim the moral high ground on patriotism.

Liberal politicians like Kerry are weasely opportunists who read the polls and "say what they believe" when they think it's advantageous. Real patriots don't have to keep checking on what other people think before they declare themselves for our country and against its enemies. What Kerry and his ilk really believe is that America is the enemy.

"Old Horseface" had a mole in MACVSOG,too. Amazing, for a mere O-2. I guess we should have begged Kerry to run every OP for us. I know he would have a real Purple Heart for sure, plus the CMH (casket medal handles). ROFLMAO
