John Kerry, Still One Step Behind
Time ^ | 1 November 2006 | KAREN TUMULTY

Posted on 11/01/2006 2:34:14 AM PST by Aussie Dasher

You've got to wonder about John Kerry's eye-hand coordination. His career is falling into a pattern. Whenever Kerry is confronted with a big decision, he tries to compensate for his last mistake. He voted against the first Iraq war, which turned out to be a success. So when the second one came around, he swallowed his misgivings and voted for it. That also turned out to be a mistake. So when it came time to vote for the $87 billion to fund the war that he had voted for, he produced what must be the single most damaging sound bite in modern political history by voting for it before he voted against it.

So now, when U.S. troops are suffering their worst casualties in nearly two years, he insulted them. Could Karl Rove have dreamed up a better October surprise than having the Democrats' most recent choice for Commander in Chief suggest that the men and women are dying there because they weren't smart enough to get into law school?

His initial impulse, predictably enough, was to fight back against the criticism. He didn't want to fall again into what turned out to be the biggest trap of 2004, when he failed to understand that a relatively small ad buy from a group that no one had ever heard of could be more damaging than he imagined. He was determined not to be "swift-boated" again. So he declared: "If anyone owes our troops in the fields an apology, it is the President and his failed team and a Republican majority in the Congress that has been willing to stamp — rubber-stamp policies that have done injury to our troops and to their families."

Aussie, I am waiting for the Michael Barone column I just know is coming.

He took Colmes to the woodshed last night, telling him he was full of balogne.

I am curious to know what Australians think of Kerry. Do they see him for the buffoon that we do?

His national political career might be over, but not his Mass. career. He will be voted senator in Mass. as long as he wants the job, just like Fatboy Kennedy.

Unfortunately, the Swimmer seems to have the life expectancy of his mother. Did anyone even run against him this time?

After this, most certainly! I understand, though, the French are still quite fond of him.

Should there be mandatory intelligence testing in Massachusetts? How can they keep on re-electing these donkeys?

Imagine the phone calls to Kerry, and he's dreamed of being on the dem party speed dial for months. Howie Carr of the Boston Herald and WRKO should be a fun read today. (HowieCarr.com)

I don't have the stomach to actually have a look over there, but there must be some 'interesting' comments about Kerry at DU and dailykos right now.

Wish this were true, but JF'nK hails from the state with the most brain-dead voters in the nation. After all, they've been voting Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy into office for decades after he covered up a killing. Too bad the rest of the country has to suffer for their lack of good morals and good sense.

Maybe THIS will get some of those stupid Kerry-Edwards bumper stickers taken off. I could get them a bunch of Kucinich stickers they could use instead.

Although Kerry said he's fight the RNC hacks and wasn't going to take it anymore, he's cancelled most (if not all) of his appearances today; he was going to campaign for Democrats.

If he can't face friendly Democrat voters, how can he face the terrorists?

Ted Kennedy should give his body to science so they can try to figure out how his liver has been able to function with all that liquor he flows through it.

Yes it does. Especially since they are not going to put Duval Patrick in as governor next week. A Clintonoid of the highest order and a rapist lover.

Any and all gun owners in Mass better run for the hills, one of his hidden agendas is to eliminate all private ownership of firearms in the state.

Mass is a lost cause. I'm glad I live in NH, but I have a feeling that there will be a mass exodus to NH of "less then conservative" dopes coming into my state and polluting it even more than it already has been with the Mass-holes.

They are drinking nthe Koolaid over there BIG TIME. They think he is a hero for not apologizing. It seems that anyone who reflects their anger is their hero.
