We'll never know unless he gives the National Archives permission to release his military record directly to the public, will we?

Thank goodness for those Massachusetts voters who would even vote into office a serial killer so long as he/she were democrat

Yes, it is worth a chuckle when Romney mentions being elected Gov of MA..

What great judgement those (majority) voters have.

Kennedys, Kerry, Frank, and, just because she is Lib, they will probably give us the 2nd coming of an Indian Princess oops I mean a Native American...like me? — Yes, me, my grandparents, parents and I were born here. Doesn’t that make me a ‘Native American’?..

MA (majority) voters are ‘NAIVE AMERICANS’.

When the *truth* is told about a candidate for high office it only *feels* like swifboating to the candidate in question.Harry Reid claims to have gotten a letter about Romney's taxes.OTOH,the press got the *actual guys*...names,faces and words...who served with Kerry.As for the "swiftboating" of Osama Obama,he's got a record.It's right there in black and white (no pun intended).Unemployment either *is*,or *isn't* 8.3 percent.Food stamps either *are*,or are *not*,given to close to half of American households.The national debt either *has*,or has *not*,risen by over 50% in the last 4 years.Osama Obama either *did*,or did *not*,by means of an Executive Order,grant an amnesty that *he*,a few months earlier,openly *admitted* that he didn't have the Constitutional authority to grant.

John Boy,your guy has a *record*.An *abysmal* record.And that's why he and his friends,in and out of government,are reduced to claiming to have received a letter and to complaining about how "unkempt" Paul Ryan looks,are reduced to claiming that Romney would put black people back in chains.

I hate to tell you this, but it was during the opening of the 9/11 memorial site. I’ll see if I can’t find the thread here at FR detailing it, and I’ll post in a minute if I do...

It’s really horrible that we can’t somehow get more Dems to consider the implications, but then there are all kinds of symbols they view as “evil”. Something like this only matters to people who have respect for the flag, others ridicule us for caring at all...

I used to get stopped in the Big Dig Tunnel by VN Vets who wanted one of my “Viet Nam Veterans Against Kerry” bumper stickers. I gave away a couple of hindered of them.

to a democrat, “swiftboating” = someone telling the truth about you and since it’s the truth, you have no defense except attacking them with lies but not disagreeing with the facts that make you look bad, because they’re true.

Then, yes..

If by “swiftboated” Kerry means confronted with undeniable facts and multiple unassailable witnesses who counter his fantasy-laden version history and appalling record of service, then, yes, Obama is being “swiftboated”.

This ten thousand times over!

She whispered that to her bastard husband during the flag-folding ceremony at Ground Zero for the 9/11 anniversary. Bag pipes, drum corps, the whole she-bang.... and President Bush was standing right next to her. Of course, Snopes went out of their way to contact the deaf school and came up with “alternative” lip-readings, which included “Look how pretty they fold that flag” and “You brave this for a flag?” But look at her facial expression and how she shakes her head after she says it. Which do you think is right?

He was there for three whole months, and deliberately ran a boat aground and everything.

Obama doesn’t “embarrass” America on foreign policy; he sabotages America and has lots of experience doing it.

Thanks
I had ‘forgotten’ that line and mode of attack about the ones in the Military were stupid and couldn’t get a job.

Actually, he should have directed to those of his ilk, pols and SOB’s....

There is so much about JF’nK to hate (well dislike) starting with his (supposedly) tossing his Ribbons over the fence (which miraculously ended up in his Senate Office) and claiming WE VN VETS were ALL baby killers because he personally observed it. (He should have been apprehended and charged at that time because it meant he observed and did nothing),

“They” don’t get it...as long as MA wants to send him to DC not much any of us in the other 49 (or is it 56) states can do about it. So, yes, we kind of sat back and said nothing.

When he ‘damned’ us for all those years and then, when he wants to run for President, claim to be 1 of us (again) and expect our undying, unquestioned support, he gets ticked when ‘us dogs’ jumped up and bit him in the ass.
That is what prompted my bumper sticker.

A decent man would have taken his defeat with grace and tried to keep a semblance of honor but these slugs have absolutely NO SHAME.

I give JF’nK a thumbs up for he did serve and he was in ‘Harms Way’ but to exploit and lie about those that served with him and under him - for nothing more than his own personal gain - makes him just another large pile of horse apples.

I kept focused on Kerrey.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Don’t mean to be ‘picky’ but the above mentioned Kerrey (Bob) from NE, although a Lib, he did serve very honorably in VN (Medal of Honor, lost portion of leg) and was a SEAL and I could possibly considered voting for him in a National Election - if the opponent was like some of these clowns ‘they’ have been shoving down our throat, of course the Libs would never (at least in this day and age) give Bob Kerrey, Sam Nunn, Zell Miller and their ilk a shot at it.
If one of the above 3 were to have challenged W - instead of JF’nK, I would have seriously thought of voting that way.
Kind of like ‘us’ putting up B Dole to run against Clintoon, no way a Lib would vote for him, not because he was Conservative (HA) but because he wasn’t a D and no where near an answer to the ‘problem’.

At least the R hierarchy has absolutely NO PROBLEM in giving the D’s the opportunity to vote R with a candidate that meets a lot of their expectations.

I should have said John F’n, me bad. Old Bob got some bad words about his Blue Max at a couple of FReeps that I was at by Special Ops types, don't know the area, don't know the circumstance, but there was a lot Posts, years ago on the subject.

Well the fact he was an “O”, lost part of his leg,- and, don’t forget - that most of what the SEAL’s did was sort of under wraps etc,.....
Ok...in Feb 69 he was involved in a raid where some civilians were offed and he was ‘accused’ of having a hand in killing a civilian. He got a BZ star for this action (the raid) and later denied the hand in killings. The charges were leveled at him around 2001 from the then most experienced member of his team.
I believe Kerrey was running for the “D” nomination at the time, so the circumstances for the ‘outing’ may have been similar to the Kerry ‘outing’.
The MOH was for action Mar 69 involving scaling a cliff, being wounded and ‘staying in command’....

All I remember about Kerry’s service is that he met with the communists that the USA was fighting while still in the reserves. Is that false?

Not only did he meet with them, he coordinated his anti-war propaganda efforts with them in order to achieve the greatest political impact for the North Vietnamese. There is only one word to describe it - treason.

I thought so -

So any jack@$$ reporter that tries to use the term “swift-boating” to mean improperly accused or smeared should be reminded of the uncontested fact that Kerry met with a foreign entity with which the US was at war, while a member of the Navy.

Kerry earned the treatment he got from his fellow service members, and then some.

Kerry may have been swiftboated, but yu can call the truth whatever name you want, even “Swiftboated.”

Obama should be swiftboated, but the problem is that he has been ‘Slowboated.” Swift would be much better.

As I recall, the boo boos were reported as “self-inflicted.”

Further, as recalled, the service for which he was decorated was, appearently, self-nominated or, at least, self-authored.

Long before Kerry was swift boated, he was Jane Fondled. Kerry finagled an early discharge in 1969, when war sentiment in the U.S. went South. He then became prominent in the anti-war movement and participated in throwing other peoples medals over a fence. Anyone with a little common sense would have realized that he was a bare faced opportunist even back then. No “Swift boating” conspiracy necessary.

Hmmm, John, where weere you with this accusation and concern as Obama was being elected?

Also, of course Kerry is crying loudly about the hits Obama is taking. He knows personally how the hit dog cres the loudest.

The Swift vote vets simply told the truth about a man using service to the country for his own advancement...and they called it straight.

Today's Navy SEALS and Speical Forces soldiers are doing the same as regards Obama and the truth can either vindicate you...or pin your hide to the wall...like it did "I served in Vietneam," John Kerry.

He gets flashbacks, and they compel him to park in handicapped spaces, go to restaurants and forget to pay, and butt to the front of the line at movie theaters. The poor man has such bad PTSD that he forgets who he is. So he asks the maitre d’, the movie usher and police officers who object to his behavior, “do you know who I am?”
