Kerry Rips Clinton Campaign
Newsmax ^ | January 15, 2008 | Newsmax Staff

Posted on 01/15/2008 8:45:41 AM PST by tlb

Sen. John Kerry blasted the presidential campaign of fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton on Monday, saying remarks by a Clinton surrogate hinting at Barack Obama’s past drug use were “negative in the worst, petty way.”

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Kerry said: “That kind of discussion, from a campaign where the former president made famous the words ‘I did not inhale,’ is to make something an issue that they themselves acknowledged shouldn’t be.”

“I thought it was negative in the worst, petty way. I thought it was unfortunate. And if it is done in surrogacy for the campaign itself then it is really wrong…

As Newsmax has reported, Kerry is a member of the so-called “Gang of Four” Hillary haters.

The Four — Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Howard Dean, and Al Gore — have pledged to stop Hillary from getting the nomination, and each has his own reason for detesting Clinton.

When even John Kerry calls you mean and petty, you've sunk far.

Kerry aligning with Obama illustrates that this guy likes to associate with losers. Hillary has the nomination in the bag, I can’t understand what Kerry has to gain by backing Obama.

Kerry who?

The one for whom the Mainstream Press Kerryied water for in the 2004 election. The one who issued the ultimate political flip-flop "I voted for ... before I voted against it". And this was just John.

His "Let them go naked" wife, was even more interesting.

If Al Gore really, really wanted to stop her he would shut up until she has the rat nomination and then declare he’s running on a third party global B.S. ticket.

I know why Gore and Kerry dislike Hill, but why do fat Teddy and Dean hate her (aside from the reasons we all do, which cannot be their reasons)?

Teddy only killed one person--the Clintons killed 80 at Waco, just to get an embarrassing stand-off off the front pages.

For those who missed it, Mary Jo Kopechne's mother died recently (her father died some time ago). Mary Jo was an only child.

For some reason, Jean Fraude Kerry seems to have a problem with unpleasant facts about liberal politicians’ past activities coming to light.

Did I miss something, like a public announcement, speech, or TV interview where these four idiots actually "pledged" this, or is Newsmax just "editorializing" again?

“The fact is that Barack Obama — and I know this because I’m the one who invited him to speak at our convention in 2004 and I campaigned with him out in Illinois — was against the war.”

Was that before or after he was FOR the war? LMAO

Ok, so three losers of 2 elections and a drunk are going to stop the most powerful scandalous corrupt women in modern American history? One idiot can’t catch a football, the other can’t drive. The third is a raving freak and the fourth thinks he’s an environmental scientist though he couldn’t pass law school, which is far easier than scientific complexities.

Call it “Revenage of the short-bus window lickers”

I guess somewhere between Nov 2004 and now, this doofus figured out that the Clinton’s sabotaged his campaign in 2004 - they had no intention of really helping Kerry win. because if he did two terms the bitch would be too old in 2012... They did as little as possible to help this turd.

Now Kerry is trying to get even. problem is, no-one cares what this loser says and the Rapist still runs the party.

Well Fat Teddy certainly has experience in undermining a nominee, after putting up a tough fight for the ‘Rat nomination in 1980 against little lord Jimmah, Kennedy gave Carter a brief handshake at the convention for the cameras, and then it was nothing but lip service.

Not that Ronald Reagan really needed Teddy’s help, as America had already seen the Great Communicator strip the bark off that arrogant little bastard from Plains Georgia in their one and only debate, and they realized they could go with a winner, or go with a total wuckphit of a loser, and 44 states later and a big electoral landslide, the answer was loud and clear:

America goes with a WINNER!

Good job by Kerry in keeping the "Obama is a former illegal drug user" story alive and in front of the public, huh... The Clinton operatives must be laughing their butts off over how successful they've been in getting their political enemies to do their work for them...

The fact that Obama used drugs for 6 or 7 years is completely fair game.

That he is now a chain smoker is completely fair game.

It goes to his character and suitability to be CiC.

Most of these people have accumulated so much money, married so much money as well, that they probably wouldn’t have to work a day in their lives (as usual) if they didn’t want to. His election to anything probably isn’t dependent on the Clintons, and on the outside chance that Obama gets elected - well, then, he’s in clover.

There is debate about the “killings” in Waco. But there is no debate about the Clinton’s gassing innocent children. I argue that point because there is no refuge for the Clintonistas. After all, the use of CS gas is against the Geneva Convention.
