John Kerry: Democrats’ woes stem from uninformed voters
Boston Herald ^ | 9/25/10 | Hillary Chabot

Posted on 09/26/2010 7:23:26 AM PDT by Impala64ssa

A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.

“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.

Conservative political blogger William Jacobson, who writes Legal Insurrection, immediately pounced on Kerry’s comments, saying that attitude is why voters are looking to shake up Capitol Hill by electing upstart candidates such as U.S. Sen. Scott Brown

John Kerry’s real problem is that voters are paying attention.People are figuring out who these F’ers really are.

Yes, John, us ignorant masses are still clinging to our guns and religion. That is something you elites will never understand.

By the way, have you been to Cambodia lately or are those memories still seared in your mind?

Yea, you can’t make this stuff up. Their whole party runs on slogans rather than facts or truth.
If you wrote this as a fiction novel, no one would publish it as no one would believe it.

The botox is leaking into his brain pan and the tanning bed is frying the brain cells. His latest economic plan that all of the unemployed marry wealthy Republican widows is short-sighted as there are just not enough to go around.

If the voters were informed, John, then the Dems would be a tiny minority in both Houses, and a Republican would be President. You would be cruising in your Yacht full time. Oh, that’s right... Forgot that’s what you do anyway.

Voter's memories:

Let us see:

In the 1994 election cycle, the MSM told us were having a temper tantrum because we didn't vote for the dimocrats.

In the 2004 election cycle, we were told that having long term memories that hurt the dimocrats was “swift boating”
.
Now, in the 2010 election cycle, we are bring told by senior dimocrats we have short attention spans and need to pay more attention. Plus, it continues to be all “Bush's fault”.

Any one out there have any ideas as to what the 2012 election cycle's dimocratic excuse is going to be?

Simple slogans like "Hope and Change"?

Isn't this the guy that served 3 months in Vietnam and got 3 self-inflicted gun shot wounds?.. and was awarded 3 purple hearts so the military could get him OUT of Vietnam?..

THEN.. he went to Paris and allied himself WITH THE VIETNAMESE?.. in the peace talks.. then came back and stumped around the US(at colleges) with Jane Fonda?..

Are we talking about THAT son of Satan?...

The haughty John Kerry, who served in Vietnam.

Who says he served, he was just there. He is a whining freeloader, an unrepentant liar. I am not a baby killer Mr Kerry you are as per the book “Unfit to Command”. You are the ultimate POS.

Read the on line comments posted about John in the paper. Every time he has a Q&A he should be told that we agree with him his voters are uniformed and stupid why else would any one have elected him.

Yep. Stupid voters think the economy is bad because they don’t have a job and can’t pay their mortgage and because businesses are shutting down all around. Why can’t they understand that conditions are really quite good?

Sounds like Walter Mondull after Reagan destroyed him by winning 49 States in '84.

MonDull said: “I guess we did not get our message out”!

These idiots cannot accept the fact:
(1) They got their message out,
(2) we (the American people understood their message, and
(3) We soundly reject their stupid, Socialist message

Yes, if the great unwashed masses would just listen to what we elites tell them to do them all will be well. Kerry’s comment is typical of liberal elitism which at its core believes that the vast majority of people are too dumb to make the “right” choices in their lives and need elites in government and media to make those decisions for them.

His statement could not live in the land of logic...the longer the dems are in charge, the more we learn about them.

The pretend president was flying high when he was first elected, but now that we have seen who he really is, and who the dems who support him are, the more we know about the kind of people they are.

We have been invaded by an almost-complete coup, and the only thing that will stop it short of military intervention, is November 2nd.

John Kerry is Jane Fonda with a d**k...we assume. He cares naught for this country and will say any negative thing he can against it.

He thinks the man he couldn't beat in a presidential election - Bush - is evil, and obama is good. That proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that Kerry is a maroon.

He needs to put one of his band-aid purple hearts over his big mouth.

John Kerry is right - DEMOCRATS don’t pay attention and don’t know what or who they are voting on. Unfortunately for him, Republicans and Independents DO pay attention, which explains why he was on the ballot for President (DEMS who don’t know a thing put him there) and why he lost, despite a press that rallied around him at every turn (Republicans and Independents are informed.)

And, of course, the republicans lost in 2006 and 2008 because they weren’t liberal enough.
