11/09/2007 Kerry Spokesman Sets Limbaugh Straight on Swiftboat Smears
WASHINGTON D.C. Kerry spokesman David Wade issued the following statement today in response to Rush Limbaugh, who said on his radio show that Kerrys Swift Boat attackers in 2004, were right on the money and nobody has disproven anything they claimed in any of their ads, statements, written commentaries, or anything of the sort.
At first I thought, thats not Rush, thats just the OxyContin talking. Nonetheless, this is a despicable but unsurprising new lie from a man whose closest brush with combat came when customs officials tried to take away his Viagra. This portly peddler of hate is once again wrong on the facts. John Kerry served his country with honor in Vietnam, and has fought for his fellow veterans ever since. The lies and smears of the Swift Boat Veterans for Bush were disproved conclusively in 2004 by the men who fought by John Kerrys side in Vietnam, by the militarys own records, by investigative journalists, and by the incredible contradictions that exposed these right wing smear artists. It is long past time that we end the politics of fear and smear that we have seen used against decorated veterans from John McCain to Max Cleland and John Kerry. Rush Limbaughs ignorance and determination to divide Americans is just another reminder that you cant spell Rush Limbaugh without the letters L-I-A-R.
The watchdog group Media Matters has provided an excellent fact check of the Limbaugh smear, proving once again that when it comes to slandering veterans, the right wing is wrong. The fact check can be found at: (http://mediamatters.org/items/200711090008?f=h_latest)
You know what they say, Mr. Kerry? People scream loudest when the truth is told.
Gosh. All Kerry does is attack Rush. No defense from his Form 180. No rebuttal of the facts laid out well in the book.
Oooooooooooooooooooooo! That hurts.
Nothing specific -- just a bare allegation that there were errors in the Swift Boats ads.
That bare allegation is good enough.
Kerry: sign the one-eight-oh.
Where’s that 180?
What! You mean Kerry did spend Christmas in Cambodia after all? (Heheheheh)
So they had 3 1/2 years to come up with an answer, and this is the best the Kerry people could do? Bwahahahahaha!!
Thank Heaven for the Swift Boaters. They were effective, but they dealt only with a side issue. The big issues are the nature of Kerry’s original discharge and the treason he committed by meeting with the enemy in Paris, while still in uniform.
The pig that squeals is the one you hit.
Actually Kerry couldn’t set anyone straight on anything. Kerry so habitually lies, he doesn’t even know what is true and what is fake any more.
All these people can do is sling mud at their political opponents. If the truth bears Kerry out, why doesn’t his spokesman just speak it? The fact is, Kerry is on videotape smearing his fellow Vietnam veterans while the war was still going on. He can’t duck or lie about that, much as he’d like to.
If this were coming from Ann Coulter about a recovering liberal she would be accused of vicious hate mongering.
Mr. Wade: Thou doth protest too much.
Can’t spell “John Kerry” without spelling J-E-R-K.
“peddler of hate” . . . yet this clown can do nothing but throw out childish names and ridicule Rush’s addiction to painkillers.
The way these losers define “hate” is laughable. Nobody hates worse than liberals and their atheistic counterparts.
