WASHINGTON - Senator John F. Kerry, in aggressively pursuing a forum in which to disprove allegations about his Vietnam military service, is drawing new attention to an issue that he was slow to address during his 2004 presidential campaign but that he now contends is vital to his political future.

“While Kerry refrained from immediately responding to the attacks - damaging his campaign, in the view of many analysts - he became more aggressive after the election about making his case. In 2005, pressed by news organizations including the Globe, Kerry authorized the Navy to release his complete military and medical records. The records appeared to contain nothing to dispute Kerry’s accounts of his service.”
“And then there was the strawberry incident...”
Sounds like ol John may be facing a cash crisis at home and desperately looking at T Boone Pickens offer as a way out.
IMHO, we should all stay focused on electing the absoulte best conservative possible in the primaries and then helping that individual defeat whichever enemy-abetting, socialist the democrats throw-up...and I don't mean that figuratively.
But that's just my opinion.
When truth attacks liberal cry swiftboating. How cool is that?
Kerry's quest to refute the Swift Boat Vets is clearly in the same alternative universe as O.J.'s search for the real killer of Nicole and Ron.
Kerry has signed the document to release his military records?
Apparently the Globe needs a fact checker.
LA TIMES & BOSTON GLOBE: "THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE IN JOHN KERRY'S FORM 180, TRUST US!"
The beauty of all this is that Kerry is taking the bait right as the 2008 election cycle kicks into gear, reminding the country how unreliable the Democrat Party can be on national security, war and peace issues.
“Kerry’s quest to refute the Swift Boat Vets is clearly in the same alternative universe as O.J.’s search for the real killer of Nicole and Ron.”
This could be as much fun to watch as the lawsuit filed against CBS by Dan Rather...watch for a another wave of exploding heads over at Moveon.org.
John F-T-A Kerry is saying that the “rules” of this wager have been changed.
Isn’t it more important to him to clear his “good” name? What should the money matter? It isn’t just about the money, is it John?
Surely you can prove that all of the charges were lies. Right, John? I mean, the wager is to disprove one but the standard I hold is that you were as they depict you. Disproving one does not disprove them all.
Clear your name or shut up. Wave a million dollars under a gigolo’s nose and you never know what he might do.
Unfortunately, the Libs have coined the term “swiftboating” as a verb to slime your opponent. It should be a reference to torpedoing someone’s election hopes with the hard truth.
sKerry primping (with or without the r) for the “saviour” candidate? veep?
Amen to your HO.
Jeff Beatty is not a nobody.
I think he is crazy if he tries to dispute them all. If I were him, I would 'disprove' 1 of the charges - some key one. The press will dutifully claim that everything the SBV claimed is now questionable, and John will be a hero.
He signed it a while back. There was a thread about this a couple of years ago. But he never sent it in to the appropriate office. So I believe him when he says he signed it. Now he should send it in.
That way he can disprove my assertion that he recieved a general discharge for the good of the Navy or perhaps a general discharge (under other than honorable conditions).
