Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., weighed in on the Sen. John Kerry firestorm with a comment on his VolPac.org blog.
Frist, infuriated by Kerry's comments, suggested the junior senator from Massachusetts may have dealt a blow to his own party by reminding Americans of the destructive beliefs of liberal leaders in that party.
Writes Frist: "Yesterday afternoon, Senator Kerry got up in front of the cameras and angrily made "crystal clear, as crystal clear as I know, I apologize to no one for my criticism of the President." Of course, no one ever asked him to apologize to President Bush. But a chorus of Americans did demand an apology for demeaning the intelligence of our troops in the field . . . for what he did say, not for what he now claims he meant to say."
Frist said Kerry's comments follow a familiar pattern, as first exhibited by Kerry during his failed 2004 presidential campaign.
"It is perfectly clear what Mr. Kerry said," Frist writes. "Whats unclear is whether Mr. Kerry ever means what he says. Perhaps he was against his comments before he actually made them."
Frist continues: "Sure enough, Senator Kerry would now like us to believe that he didn't mean what he said ... that he really only meant to insult the intelligence of President Bush. And Senator Kerry is extraordinarily angry that Americans would take him seriously enough to pay attention to his actual words after his failed presidential run. But, as one Democrat congressman reportedly told ABC News, "I guess Kerry wasn't content blowing 2004, now he wants to blow 2006, too."
Frist suggested Democrats are worried that Kerry's comments will have a negative impact on their attempts to gain control of the House and Senate in next week's elections.
"[Senate Minority Leader] Harry Reid and [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi are staying silent for fear that Americans would recognize the consequences of a Democrat Congress. Kerry was told he wasn't welcome to a scheduled rally in Minnesota. And now, Bruce Braley, the Democrat running in Iowa's 1st District whose election Hillary Clinton claimed was her "top priority," asked Kerry to stay away . . .
"Maybe Mrs. Clinton advised Braley that the junior senator from Massachusetts is increasingly an embarrassment to the Democrat party and to himself," Frist writes.
wow. how underwealming a response! This is the time to go for the throat. Brig up Durbans comments calling them NAZI's and Kerry earlier crap last year claiming that our troops are killing women and children! What a dishrag response. Frist your a puss!
