Attn Philly Freepers, Military Families & Veterans: Freep John Kerry at Public House Wed. 11/01/06
Tuesday, October 31, 2006 | Kristinn

Posted on 10/31/2006 2:53:44 PM PST by kristinn

Doctor Raoul asked me to post this. Please join him this Wednesday, November 1 from 4 p.m. until in to the evening outside the Public House at 1801 Arch St. in downtown Philadelphia for a freep of John Kerry. If we have to explain why, you haven't been paying attention today :-)

Kerry will be doing a 'Happy Hour' fundraiser for Bob Casey.

Thanks to hoosiermama for the tip.

As always, all participants are expected to abide by some simples rules: No violence, no profanity, no racism, no provocations, obey the law and treat all law enforcement officers with respect.

This is just cruel.

I like it.

It's only funny until someone goes home crying.

Then it gets even funnier.

Think you could get John to cry?

If I was Tony Snow, I would have shown video of the event, posted what he said verbatim on a sign on an easel and said the following:

This is what John Kerry thinks of our troops in Iraq. Taking in consideration the things he said about soldiers in Vietnam thirty-five years ago, many of us have long suspected this was the way he really feels about those who volunteer to serve this nation. It's ironic that this scurrilous insult to the intelligence of our men and women fighting terrorism in Iraq should come to light on Halloween, because this is the day when people disguise themselves and put on a mask. Last night, the opposite happened -- John Kerry removed his mask, and revealed who he really is.

John Kerry will try to spin this into something it's not. This statement is UNSPINNABLE. It's not an political attack on the President or the Secretary of Defense or the Secretary of State or the Republicans in Congress. There is only one group of people he's referring to -- our men and women serving this country. He's saying by inference that if you don't study hard and do your homework and don't make an effort to be smart,, you might be forced into volunteering for the military! Does THAT sound like someone who, quote unquote, "supports the troops?" It sounds to me like someone who INSULTS the troops!

And to think this man wants to be Commander-in-Chief! He has said many unkind things about our President's service, and about the deferments of the Vice President (who is a former Secretary of Defense). But we have free speech in America. Sen. Kerry is entitled, if he thinks it's politically expedient, to make remarks that denigrate the service of those who served in the National Guard during the Vietnam war, although, strangely enough, the 40th 42nd President -- a Democrat like Kerry -- didn't serve in the military in any capacity during the Vietnam war. I don't EVER remember that President being slammed by John Kerry. But George W. Bush has NEVER said ANYTHING that minimizes the service of veterans or suggests that he believes people risking their lives to defend this nation aren't, to use Sen. Kerry's word, "smart."

To all Democratic candidates running for office across our country, especially those that are veterans: I invite YOU to voice YOUR opinion about what the man YOU nominated in 2004 to be your Commander-in-Chief said yesterday. But if you wish to suggest what Sen. Kerry said wasn't what he meant, I will direct you to exactly what it is that he said in context. Once again: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." Try to spin that into something that is NOT disparaging of our brave men and women living, fighting, injured, and dying in Iraq -- I invite to you to make a vain attempt. In Mr. Kerry's own words, "BRING...IT...ON!"

Ed Muskie cried in New Hampshire when his wife was dissed. But, I knew Ed Muskie. And John Kerry is no Ed Muskie.

Mr. Silverback, could you do the Pennsylvania "Scramble for Intercept" ping thing? We can't have Doctor Raoul out there on "Ed Rendell's streets" without backup.

Union head-goon John Morris may be dead, but Philly is full of more just like him.

Philly-area Freepers - please help out here.

Thanks in advance.

Stay safe, Doc!

This is a double post for kristinn, sorry. Dr. Raoul was also sent a copy. Please include me on the ping list for this. If Kerry is still on the schedule, I'll try to get there.

Because this posting and the cross-link posted elsewhere have different streets listed for the FREEP, I checked the website of The Public House for its location. Note the slight modification:
2 Logan Square
Between Arch and Cherry
Philadelphia PA 19103
P: 215.587.9040
Logan Square
Between Arch and Cherry
Philadelphia PA 19103

The hotel (where The Public House is located) is halfway around the [Logan] circle on the right at 18th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway

I don't know how to do links but here's the web addresss for directions: http://www.publichousephilly.com/directions.cfm

Well, now, I guess the national media will just have to do a story about the fact that Kerry is no longer welcome on the democrat's campaign trail. Of course, that'll never happen.

(1) Kerry is still listed on the PH website.
(2) Just realized that Andie Summers from my favorite Philly radio station, country WXTU, and Eagles players do an "Eagles Prime Time Live" from that location on Monday Nov 6. Wonder if the station owner could have a word with the owner of the place; the station owner took the Ditzy Clucks off the air.
PLEASE no jokes about "birds of a (losing)feather flock together."

Kerry may have canceled his appearance at the event, but the event will still go on; and the 'Rats who had invited him should still be tarred with Kerry's words.

Kerry and his 'Rat brethren gave this one to us. We should run all the way with it.

All that said - PA Freepers stay safe out there, and watch out for Rendell's goons.

I can read the history books now: Senator from Massachusetts, Senator John "Cut and Run" Kerry....LOL

BTW...I think in his speech today, he pretty much called President Bush out...and said he is going to be "a MAN"..didn't he???

What kinda man goes and runs and hides from the media and the constituents???

No..I don't think so...from what I have been reading the ones that were planning on freeping these events still want to...

It is a good thing...make the candidates that Kerry was supposed to be "helping" answer FOR John...make them say if they agree with him or not...after all, Kerry WOULD be the POTUS right now, if THEY had their way...he should HAVE to stand up and take the heat...

But, unlike the REAL men, like Bush and Cheney and Rummy....Kerry cancels out...what a wimp.
