Kerry says he deserves 2nd chance in '08

1 hour, 29 minutes ago

Sen. John Kerry says he deserves a second chance if he decides to take another crack at becoming president.

The Massachusetts Democrat, who lost to President Bush in 2004, said it is a basic principle that "Americans give people a second chance. And if you learn something and prove you've learned something, maybe even more so. Now, I don't know what I'm going to do yet. We'll make that decision down the road."

Ronald Reagan twice unsuccessfully sought the GOP nomination for president before he got it — and won two elections for the White House.

"John McCain, their leading candidate — didn't he get kicked around South Carolina by the same president because he wasn't patriotic enough as a prisoner of war? He's now their leading candidate for president," Kerry said of the Republican Party. "Richard Nixon seemed to get kicked around pretty badly both running for president and governor, turned around and came back and got elected president."

Kerry faces a major challenge trying to convince Democratic activists that a recently defeated candidate can still carry his party's hopes for recapturing the White House.

Kerry won't get a second chance. He won't even be close in the run for the democrat nomination.

"My name is John F. Kerry. By virtue of who I am and how rich I am, I deserve a second chance to be President. After all, George Bush stole the election from me last time around because of all the voting irregularities in Ohio. Oh, and did you know I served in Viet Nam? And that I am John F. Kerry? I deserve the Presidency, and anyone who does not vote for me is an idiot."

Yup, there really is a difference between the parties.

Nope. He still hasn't worked a day in his life but lives off Ketchup and Mustard, and he's still a phony veteran.

Seems to me that al gore's daddy promised him the presidency. Surely he deserves a second chance too.

Life is tough, Jean-kerri. We can't all be president.

Anyway, you'd better ask hillary for permission.

Don't even talk to me until you fulfill your promise to release you full military/medical record. "The truth is out there" my ass! He cries about how his military record was "distorted" yet continues to besmirch the President's, both past and present.

John "the enemy's best friend" didn't deserve a first chance, much less a second.

Doesn't matter though. When Hillary decides to run, she will torpedo him faster than he can run away from a fight!

He's the laughing stock of the youth in Vietnam. They call him "the runner". Some in Saigon told me that their city would have been more hi-tech than Hong Kong today if Kerry and his kind didn't get their way in the 1970s.

Evidentally the re-education camps didn't work OR the internet is showing them the truth.

The Democrats need to find some one who doesn't talk down to the public. Algore, Hillery and Kerry remain popular because so many people don't know that that they are being patronized.The MSM arn't going to tell them in fear of revealing their own secrets.

What Kerry deserves, but probably isn't going to get, is a long drop with a short rope. He, and Jane Fonda, and the rest of the traitors.

Americans give second chances, but Democrats haven't done so since I was in pinafores.

The man is positively delusional if he thinks he will win the nomination again. He belongs in a cornfield in Iowa, keeping the crows off the crops.

Kinda dovetails with that so-called "oops" moment reported yesterday, by a Clinton advisor. They're really pushing for McCain sympathy, aren't they?

Remember what Bob Dole said during the 2004 election....
"How does a man earn three purple hearts, but never spends one day in the hospital?"

It will be fun watching Kerry and Hillary going at each
other in the primaries! A plague on both their houses!

With John McCain on our ticket, liberals will have two good candidates to choose from.

Sigh.

What is it with Democrats that they can not loose with dignity? You don't hear Bob Dole running around whining. You don't hear George H.W. Bush running around whining.

They need to learn that winning the Presidency is not a personal entitlement.

I often wonder what today's population of South(ern) Vietnam thinks of the USA after thirty years of communist rule. How do they feel about the party that managed to get the rest of the country to abandon them? How does the VN government filter the news from America? Is there enough Internet there to make any difference?
