John Kerry 'Swiftboats' Democrats
NewsMax ^ | October 31, 2006 | Wynton C. Hall

Posted on 10/31/2006 1:47:58 PM PST by redstateone

The snide, hyper-elitism dripping from Kerry's words is arresting. But swirling beneath the surface of his comments is something deeper, something conservative critics have long identified and attacked among those they say belong to the "Blame America First" crowd, as former U.N. Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick so artfully once put it.

And that is this: What, if anything, will liberals ...

Surprise.. the dems shoot themselves in the foot again...

Isn't that always the October Surprise? The dems attempting a surprise that backfires?

I can't remember when the Republicans actually have pulled an October Surprise even if the media keeps associating the surprise with our side..

And it just gets better:
"That Democrats would have as their presidential candidate a man who belittles and demeans our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines, is bad for America. But it's hardly surprising. Indeed, it calls to mind the outrageous comments by Kerry's colleague, Senator Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who just last year equated those same "uneducated troops" as behaving akin to "Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime - Pol Pot or others."

Just days before Democrats were poised to have a shot at winning the House and Senate, Karl Rove and Team GOP must be understandably overjoyed that Mr. Kerry chose now to remind voters of the disdain he and many in his party have for those who would use aggressive force to defend America from her enemies.

This is it! Well said on another thread..."this is the Dems 'Jump The Shark Moment'. This one sentence (F'n Kerry's) is the ongoing theme of the Democratic party. This will resonate with the masses. It cannot be ignored by the BS MSM.

If Sen. Kerry can't apologize, maybe he should just resign.

You know, if it was a joke against the President, lets go there for a minute, it just goes to show that all Dems offer is hatred of Bush, he was supposed to give a speech about education, and just tells lame ass Bush bash jokes?
Thaats all they are about in the end.

No matter how they attempt to spin this horrible comment, it is a loser for them big time either way.

This would look good in some ads, especially paired with Kerry's 1971 comments about destroying villages reminiscient of Jenjis Khan...

Tagline.. they never change.

Maybe Bill Clinton, and Hilderbeast persuaded him, (Kerry) to say this. They themselves have the same sentiments toward our military.

The Democrats elected this white trash into office.

It will take two generations of Republican control to undo the damage these ilks have done to America.

I have been waiting while John Gibson is interviewing House Majority leader Bohener for GW's response to Kerry's remarks. In the obscure thought that CNN might cover it. I flipped over to CNN to see if they had it...was about ready to flip back because they had Jack Cafferty speaking and I thought what the hell, he is probably just bashing Bush, so i turned off mute and he was just finishing his rant when i heard him say something to the effect.
"I just wish he would shut up, he is not running for anything" and realized the LEFT is really ticked at Kerry and just wish he would at least shut up until election day.
Karl Rove you maginificant bastard...that brain implant that caused Kerry to go off worked.LOL!

Kerry is a preening fop who would be king - a la, I AM FRANCE, the Sun King. He believes himself to be a minor God with aspirations of true divinity. He is the penultimate ME junky from the only state in the union yearning to anoint royalty, again.
My disgust with this man is primordial. It emanates from my soul. My whole being trembles in rage over the purile ignobility of this man. He is - I dare not say it.

I too am hoping that John Kerry has "Swift Boat'd" any chance the Rats have of winning this election.

I am hoping that he opened the Pandora Box of election misgivings for the rats!

Kerry better hope Massachusetts re-elects him Senator next time around, because he blew his chances for just about any other job in America.

I think you're reading more into the word than is there. My dictionary uses the words 'ingenious' and 'crafty' in its definition of 'artful'. There's nothing regarding honesty mentioned in it.

If America votes for democrats in this or in any election, America will suffer the consequences. And those consequences will be serious -- a degrading of America's military, a continued sale of America's security, an ever new assault on the income of actual working Americans, and, most serious of all, a severe set-back in the war on terror. As I've said in other posts, "democrats get other people killed!"
