Kerry Yellow (John Kerry Bash)
the American Spectator ^ | 6/2/2006 | David Holman

Posted on 06/02/2006 7:07:22 AM PDT by bitt

A YEAR AND A HALF AFTER HE LOST the 2004 presidential election, John Kerry can't get enough of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. No matter the occasion, he doesn't miss an opportunity to parade his campaign wounds, however incoherently and obsessively.

Supporting an Iraqi war vet running as a Democrat for Henry Hyde's congressional seat? "I know something firsthand about the Swift Boat-style Republican attack ads of the last election -- but you don't have to take my word for it," Senator Kerry wrote in a March fundraising e-mail, on behalf of Tammy Duckworth, an amputee whom no one has criticized. "Just ask John McCain. Ask Max Cleland. Ask Jack Murtha." His futile, foreign-based filibuster attempt of Sam Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court? Why, John Kerry and his friends "will never surrender" to "Swift Boat-style attacks against Democratic candidates." Asked if he's accepted campaign contributions from Abramoff affiliates? "That's another one of their 'Swift Boat'-style tactics where they try to throw up the mud and stick it." Since last November, Kerry has dredged up the Swifties in eight separate fundraising appeals.

One might assume that John Kerry would want to forget the Swift Boat controversy. After all, it effectively voided any military service advantage he might have had over President Bush and weakened his credibility on current military issues. Then again, if it was delusional of him to run as a war hero in the first place, admitting to such a gross political miscalculation would end his presidential ambitions once and for all.

"Kerry and his sympathizers have more in mind than settling old scores, though. The point is to inoculate the senator and other war-squeamish Democrats against charges of cowardice or ill will toward the troops. When Rep. Jack Murtha called for the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq last fall, a single charge of cowardice made him the victim -- instead of the troops whose mission he undermined. Frank Rich and Helen Thomas cried that Republicans were trying to "swift boat" him. When Cindy Sheehan's credibility was questioned, she herself claimed to be the victim of "more 'swiftboating.'" Any Democrat's long-ago war experiences, however brief, have become his absolute shield from any criticism related to his military positions. By this logic, anyone who has once prayed would qualify for sainthood."

Kerry and Gore are both mentally unfit for public office.

The Nation dodged two bullets, imho.

Kerry is an opportunistic, Marxist liberal that only cares about power and control, like most socialists, and otherwise hates America and the military. He is totally unfit to be C-in-C. His political cowardice and opportunism played on the backs of Viet Nam vets (the dedicated ones unlike Kerry) was a total disgust to the nation and a major embarassment as most of the anti-America, anti-war, anti-military liberals are.

Our enemies would have loved to have seen Kerry as President (thought makes me ill) as well as the U.N. who would have welcomed him with open arms...

hanoi kerry went before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in 1971
to accuse the United States military
of committing massive numbers of war crimes in Vietnam.

hanoi kerry 1971 TESTIMONY

http://www.c-span.org/vote2004/jkerrytestimony.asp

Legislative Proposals Relating to the War in Southeast Asia Thursday, April 22, 1971
United States Senate, Committee on Foreign Relations, Washington, D.C.




"Yes, indeed- John Kerry thinks it's 1971 all over again. Yesterday, 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."

Here is the transcript for "Face the Nation"-

http://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/face_120405.pdf

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

Hey buttmunch kerry, release your military records and let the people decide. If you have been badly misunderstood you will get a bump in the polls, if not, you have no reason to bitch. My gut tells me you were dishonorably discharged and most of your combat record is a product of your excited narcisstic imagination. But until you release the records I can't say for sure. It just requires your signature on a release form, ask Bush, he will tell you what form you need to fill out. Or ask Dan Rather, I understand he is really up to speed on military records. Asshat.

John Kerry could end all this by simply signing the SF180 authorizing the release of his military records. He knows this. That is why he won't sign the SF180.

Except now Gore is quietly, under the radar, becoming the moonbat go-to guy. He is the anti-Hillary and the anti-Kerry. He is sympathetic. He's a Hollywood darlin'. He's owed.

He needs to be watched.

I really do doubt their mental stability. It is curious how these men with checkered personal histories and obvious visible quirks are seriously considered for service in the highest office in our country. Makes one wonder about the mental condition of the whole country.

Kerry should get over it, right....?

this guy continues to vote against the interests of the population of the state he pretends to represent, and will need constant exposure to offset the attacks he mounts against the President, the administration and the military every day....

Kerry gives rich layabouts a bad name.

Here is a man who supposedly had The Plan to solve all our problems in Iraq--I kept waiting after election day for him to step forward and say "Since success in Iraq is more important than an election, here is my detailed plan of how to solve Iraq."

Funny, I never saw this genius plan.

He doesn't want to BE president, he, like Al Gore, wants to be in front of captive audiences that have no choice but to applaud him, because neither of them could draw a crowd on their own. (Gore is drawing crowds of Bush haters.)

Kerry CAN'T get over it; up till now, his service in Vietnam excepted, WHAT has he done or gone through in life? Marrying TWO rich women and sitting on his boney ass in the Senate for two decades, flying around on his wife's plane, pushing NO legislation of his own, and running a failed cmapaign against a vulnerable president don't count.

Drink your wife's booze on your wife's late husband's plane and sleep in your wife's late husband's homes and spend your wife's late husband's money and shut up, John!

'The Plan to solve all our problems in Iraq--I kept waiting after election day for him to step forward and say "Since success in Iraq is more important than an election, here is my detailed plan of how to solve Iraq." '
~~~~~~~~

And I often think he should be held responsible for all the Iraq military deaths, yes even the Iraqi CITIZEN deaths, since he made that statement...

to this DAY he hasn't revealed his secret plan and has thus enabled the deaths of many hundreds, thousands...and "damaged the image of the USA in the eyes of the world"..(lol)

Kerry, like all the limosine liberal Marxists, is a hypocrite of the first order...a liar, a cheat, a carpetbagger, a gigolo (in his case) ... just a real pile of reprehensible trash who, without his rich skirts, would be just another liberal senate tramp.

checkered personal histories and obvious visible quirks

Why are these traits only noticeable by the few ... and not the many? Anyone who ever had to 'choose up sides,' would take one look at Clinton, Gore, Kerry, and pass'em by. One look at Jimmy Carter, and a normal American would dial '911.'

Clinton, up close, exudes tremendous magnetism. Up closer, and you see the make-up, the bulbous running nose, the red eyes, and twitching, plus he is huge. Sorta like a blow-up parade float.

Gore is just plain raving nuts. Kerry is like a homeless guy wandering the streets talking to himself about himself. Two classic schizophrenics, one paranod the other delusional.

So, how do they get the votes? Is this really Prozac Nation? All of these boys have held very high office. Not one of these boys is anyone you would invite home for dinner.

sKerry Claims that he has released "all" the records held by the Navy. Problem is the only way the Navy would have any of the records is if an ongoing investigation was happening. The National Archives is where all records are stored and can only be released with the signing of a form 180. What worries me is, has sKerry managed to have the real records Bergerized or replaced with Rathered Documents.

Is it also a 'swift boat' tactic to lie about the war, John? You are a 'swift boater' yourself, Johnny, aren't you?

Would not be any surprise, given the level of corruption and crime in Washington nowadays. It just keeps getting worse too. And the perps just walk from all their crimes -- Sandy Burglar was a classic example of the political class of Washington protecting its own.
