John Kerry: They're swiftboating Obama
3/29/12 4:24 PM EDT
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) has lent his name to a fundraising solicitation that raises the specter of millionaires and billionaires funding an outside effort against President Obama.
"When I was the Democratic nominee for president in one of the closest and toughest elections in history, a group of billionaires did something unprecedented," Kerry wrote. "They wrote million-dollar checks to fund lies about my service on what were called "Swift Boats" in Vietnam -- and in so doing, they turned the boats my crewmates and I served on into a new political shorthand for the most vicious smears imaginable: 'swiftboating.'"
In 2004, an anti-Kerry 527 group formed to raise questions about his war record and air ads against the senator, then running as the Democratic nominee for president. Its' spokesman, Jerome Corsi, would go on to become one of the leading proponents of the 'birther' conspiracy that falsely suggests Obama was born in Kenya or elsewhere.
Kerry points to a $3 million dollar donation to a pro-Romney super PAC by Houston construction magnate Bob Perry as the next round in an outside effort against Obama.
"One man. Three million dollars. And that's just the start," Kerry writes.
"I know all too clearly that these guys will do or say anything to win. They'll stop at nothing. But forewarned is forearmed. Their multi-million dollar smear tactics were new in 2004; in 2012 we know their playbook, and shame on us if we don't tear it into shreds. Join me and we will stop the 'swiftboating' of President Obama," Kerry emails.

Keep talking douchebag loser John Kerry.
Kerry is a great help to our side.
I read Unfit For Command, and they nailed Kerry’s butt to the wall. The truth hurts, komrade.
Awwwww just in time for Easter.
John Kerry, who claimed up and down that he was in a black ops mission on Cambodia on Christmas in 1968 (a provable, premeditated lie), is still trying to re-steal valor from those who earned it.
The Swiftboaters are and were fine and brave Navy officers and men, and Kerry was an unwilling participant, who cowardly gamed the purple heart rules to secure an early trip back.
Okay Mister Kerry, if others have lied about your service, just fill out that Standard Form 180, and (with no strings or exceptions) release all of your Naval records.
You will not, of course.
(Liar that you are.)
I think we have a definitions problem.
To ME, “swiftboating” = “exposing the truth about someone’s claimed accomplishments, said accomplishments which were untrue.”
Why didn’t poor John Kerry sue his slanderers?
“I know all too clearly that these guys will do or say anything to win. They’ll stop at nothing. But forewarned is forearmed. Their multi-million dollar smear tactics were new in 2004; in 2012 we know their playbook, and shame on us if we don’t tear it into shreds.
Talk about projection... these evil demonrats are beyond psychotic...!
I hope so.
Its about time we found out the truth about Obama.
Nothing this man says is true.
I heard an interesting piece of trivia....John Kerry served in Vietnam.
Especially If Romney wins.
Most of us will be passing our fliers for Obama/ Sharpton 2012.
Our purity shall remain intact!
My dad and uncle were in ‘Nam at the same time as Skerry. Yep, Skerry was on a vacation, then came home to smear all the patriots!
Dad passed in ‘85 from his exposure to Agent Orange.
I’d love to see Skerry and Fonda take a little vacation back to Hanoi.
I just tried to log into SWBFT. Doc and found that I’ve been deemed inactive. But just so everyone remembers, he was in country only 4 months (one of which was training) and received 5 medals......or about one every two weeks.
Those libs never run out of people to blame for their shortcomings, do they?
They must want to be known as the ‘blame someone else’ party. Or maybe ‘blame everyone else’.
