Kerry denounces McCain campaign for its 'ugliness'
politickerMA.com ^ | 10/10/08 | Jeremy P. Jacobs

Posted on 10/11/2008 3:49:38 PM PDT by melt

U.S. Sen. John Kerry denounced John McCain's negative messages on Friday, saying the Arizonan's campaign has turned "ugly" and "desperate."

Kerry, a Boston Democrat, made his remarks in a message distributed to his large email list. Here are the key grafs,

John McCain has shown a stunning failure of leadership. His campaign, in a time of economic crisis and foreign policy drift, has degenerated into a negative and nasty campaign of smears.

The reports are piling up of ugliness at the campaign rallies of John McCain and Sarah Palin. Audience members hurl insults and racial epithets, call out "Kill Him!" and "Off With His Head," and yell "treason" when Senator Obama's name is mentioned. I strongly condemn language like this which can only be described as hate-filled.

Kerry, who faced strong and inaccurate attacks as the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, notes recent studies that have shown that all of McCain's ads recently have been attack ads and calls on his supporters to retaliate against the attacks by visiting his website www.truthfightsback.com.

John Kerry is a Communist and a traitor to our contry.

He belonged to the terrorist group VVAW. The group that plotted and started training to murder 12 pro-war US Senators. Two members were arrested with a bomb in their cat heading to a speech by VP Agnew.

They collect information on tactics and weapons and gave this information to the Soviets.

Read more on my about me page, I researched all 12,000 pages of the FBI files on Kerry and the VVAW.

Here is the email I sent to McCain-—

http://www.johnmccain.com/Contact/

Dear John,
I am concerned that you are being now portrayed as not willing to be tough.

As a retired executive I never asked a subordinate to do something I would not do myself.

You have asked Sarah Palin to appropriately attack Obama for his nefarious relationships.

Now it seems you are backtracking.

That is not the type of executive I want.

Please change course now.

Respectfully,

Me too. The liberals are seeing the impact this is having and are getting very nervous. As Margaret Thatcher would say “ it’s no time to go wobbly” this is war.

I keep hearing this stuff about things like “kill him” being yelled out but I’ve not heard any tapes at all. Are they out there? From what I’ve read, if this did happen it sounded like they were saying it in reference to Ayres. Regardless, if someone was yelling it, I’d bet $100 it was a dem plant.

Kerry didn't seem to realize he was “out of uniform” and had no business saluting in this manner. In civilian clothes you put your hand over your heart as in saying the pledge.

Great leadership senator.

I don't think I'm going to believe or listen to a LIAR!

April 23, 1971, Kerry claimed that U.S. soldiers had “raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam.”

This is the reward McCain gets for caring about what Democrats think. Kerry should go back to his puerile anti-war protesting.

I think they are starting to get into trouble with Obama’s multiple connections to terrorist. They don’t like it, makes people think about who they are voting for, and would like to call it ugliness when its the truth. I guess the truth hurts.

August 28, 2008

John Kerry:

“Never in modern history has an administration squandered American power so recklessly. Never has strategy been so replaced by ideology. Never has extremism so crowded out common sense and fundamental American values. Never has short-term partisan politics so depleted the strength of America’s bipartisan foreign policy.”

“Years ago when we protested a war, people would weigh in against us saying, ‘My country right or wrong.’ Our answer? Absolutely, my country right or wrong. When right, keep it right. When wrong, make it right. Sometimes loving your country demands you must tell the truth to power.”

Kerry railed against Bush and US policies at Davos after he lost the 2004 election. Gore directly slammed the Bush policy after 9/11 in Saudi Arabia in 2003. Pelosi slammed US,Bush, policy during her trip to Syria.
