Casey to Welcome Kerry to Philadelphia Tonight for Fundraiser
Pittsburgh - According to today's Philadelphia Inquirer, Bob Casey Jr. made the following comments about John Kerry's disparaging remarks yesterday:
"From what I can gather, Kerry botched a joke. That's what he said, and I take him at his word. He served in combat. Last time I checked, the president and the vice president did not. The White House and the Santorum forces should get to work on dealing with the real problems in Iraq. The first thing they should do is fire Mr. Rumsfeld instead of spending a lot of time trashing Democrats." (Jennifer Loven, "'04 foes exchange fire anew on troops, war, education," The Associated Press via The Philadelphia Inquirer, November 1, 2006)
Here's what John Kerry said yesterday during a speech in California, "You know, education -- if you make the most of it, you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
Vince Galko, campaign manager for Santorum 2006, "This wasn't a joke as Bob Casey contends. Casey needs to acknowledge these comments for what they were - disparaging to the honorable men and women serving in the armed services - and denounce them. We've known that Bob Casey is nothing more than a shallow mouth piece for the talking points assigned to him, but for Casey to not know that John Kerry crossed the line is deeply troubling. Bob Casey needs to rethink his comments and call on Kerry to apologize. Perhaps he can do so when John Kerry joins him for a fundraiser tonight in Philadelphia."
Santorum has been handed a fresh magazine. Lock, load and fire!
His statement ought to be in a campaign commercial.
If it was a joke, where was the set-up?
Casey is one stupid puke Fur Shur.
Casey should be flushed down the Rat toilet into their overflowing cess pool with Murtha, Pelosi, Durbin, Kerry, Kennedy, Boxer, Finestein and other anti America rats.
Santorum is on a roll! He has got to get this message out to the fools of PA. I'm sorry if you live and work in PA and are proud of your state etc but it is FULL OF FOOLS! Casey has just shown his true colors and stuck Kerry's foot in his mouth.
John Kerry's face is the setup. Just look at him.
Bobby the boob Casey is as dumb as a box of rocks....I hope my fellow Pennsylvanians will realize this and vote for Rick on Tuesday.....I hope and pray Rick squeeks this one out....
Oh, my God! Casey is a complete idiot.
Kerry even looked down at his notes before finishing the "joke." Can he not even read?
pa is loaded with vets. this message needs to get out there.
Kerry's website removed the photos but here is the cached page!!! http://126.96.36.199/search?q=cache:w-U0VangqB0J:www.johnkerry.com/+johnkerry.com&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=1
"Oh, my God! Casey is a complete idiot."
Come on RNC send some ca$h to Rick finish this off right!
It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.
AMEN! My daughter is getting married this weekend, but she and her fiance have sent in their absentee ballots to try to ensure that Santorum (and Swann!) get elected.
