With all the turmoil in financial markets in the wake of a defeated federal government bailout package, hyperbole is running at high levels.

Take former presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. Kerry appeared on FOX News Channel’s Sept. 29 “The O’Reilly Factor” and commended House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for her efforts garnering Democratic votes in the House. He lambasted the Republicans members for not voting ‘yes’ on the proposed $700 billion bailout.

“Let me tell you something. She [Pelosi] summoned a supermajority,” Kerry said. “Sixty percent plus voted for this. The Republicans had a super-supermajority – almost veto proof – 66 percent voted against it today.”

The junior Massachusetts senator accused the Republicans who voted against the bailout of “screwing” certain components of the American economy.

Kerry should know a thing or two about screwing his fellow Americans.

The Democrats can pass it if they want to. So what's stopping them?

“The Republicans had a super-supermajority – almost veto proof – 66 percent voted against it today.”

And the American People had a super-DUPER-supermajority and said, “We’re not buying it!”

Those paying attention are aware that Pelosi played this bill for political advantage, not for the best interests of the country. She has decimated public trust on this issue. Nothing will get done now, even if it’s the right thing.

She was so desperate that Dems/Obama get credit and the GOP get the blame, she sold any ounce of trust in the process down the sewer. This is the last nail in the coffin of her leadership.

Also passed the blame on Republicans for not getting anything done last 8 years.
When confronted with why they have not done anything the last 2 years he said they needed 60% majority and Republicans block everything. Based on his logic would that not be true when the Republicans controlled the Senate the previous two terms.

So, the Republicans screwed the guy on main street before they could screw the US TAXPAYERS?

I’d say that’s accurate. /s

I watched this on O’Reily last night. O’Reily lambasted him for even bringing it up. At the end, Kerry was sitting there red-faced and angry.

I guess that’s why the cowards in the senate postponed their vote until after the House, because they are so brave and committed they wanted to see which way the wind was blowing before they made their opinions heard. Hey John Kerry - when will you release your military service records like you said you would?

The only way John Kerry ever sees Main Street is from behind the tinted windows of his limousine.

Yep, we had ETs kidnap 95 rat congressits and remove their liberal brains to vote against the bailout.

John, boy, when are you going to realize that you are a very stupid liar. When you lie, the internet exposes your latest lie in seconds.

"With $165,400, Sen. Dodd also tops the list of members of Congress who took campaign cash from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac since 1989.
Sen. Barack Obama, the self-styled agent of change, is a distant second at $126,000 and Sen. John Kerry is third at $111,000.

The Democrats and the media are out spinning the GOP.

The election will be close so perhaps they will be effective. My disappointment is that most Gopers are stting on their hands, out of the game.

Kerry was rambling like the village idiot. 60% majorities are meaningless in this discussion. The President was for this bill. There is no veto threat. Yes, there is a filibuster threat in the Senate but that is meaningless at this point. The Senate under Harry Reid's great leadership doesn't yet have a bill... This was just more of everything is Bush’s fault and we Democrats are victims of the dumbest President in history. Asshat Inc.

The only “guy on Main Street” Jean-Claude knows is the paper boy.

The only Americans Kerry found an excuse to ‘screw’ were heiresses or rich widows.
