The image of “reporting for duty” Kerry arriving at the donk convention in a boat like he was patrolling a river in Vietnam will forever be seared into my memory. What a disgusting display that was,,,acting like a mighty war hero.

The facts are that with very few exceptions, none of which come to mind, the MSM controls the language of politics. They add new words and phrases to the political vocabulary as the need arises and there seems to be very little that we can do about it.


The MSM Controls not just the language but EVERYTHING in politics. Period.

And there indeed seems to be very little we can do about it.

“I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I remember what it was like to be shot at by Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians, and have the president of the United States telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not in Cambodia. I have that memory which is seared — seared — in me.”

All the living commanders in Kerry’s chain of command—Joe Streuhli (Commander of CosDiv 13), George Elliott (Commander of CosDiv 11), Adrian Lonsdale (Captain, USCG and Commander, Coastal Surveillance Center at An Thoi), Rear Admiral Roy Hoffmann (Commander, Coastal Surveillance Force Vietnam, CTF 115), and Rear Admiral Art Price (Commander of River Patrol Force, CTF 116)—deny that Kerry was ever ordered to Cambodia. They indicate that Kerry would have been seriously disciplined or court-martialed had he gone there. At least three of the five crewmen on Kerry’s PCF 44 boat—Bill Zaldonis, Steven Hatch, and Steve Gardner—deny that they or their boat were ever in Cambodia. The remaining two crewmen declined to be interviewed for this book. Gardner, in particular, will never forget those days in late December when he was wounded on PCF 44, not in Cambodia, but many miles away in Vietnam.

“In the note, he also slapped Romney for being a foreign policy novice and potential presidential disaster”

Remind me again ole Audie Murphy the second, exactly what foreign policy credentials your black version of Alfred
E. Newman had in 2008? Inquiring minds want to know.

Also please tell how in the hell you rotated out of of SEA after five months while the other 99% of us stayed the full year and longer. Once again, inquiring minds would like to know.

I’ve no idea when or where - but that’s what she is saying - and that’s what she feels when viewing our flag.

The sad part is that 40% or so of voters still like these two and there is a good chance for re-election. It’s the saddest thing ever at the political level in America.

As an aside, watch how Obama stumbles just a little as he speaks without a teleprompter - that’s because he’s thinking one thing and having to say another - it’s really hard to communicate when one isn’t telling the truth.

When Kerry is not busy serving dishonorably, he is busy marrying rich women. Kerry is the one veteran who used his 13 weeks in Vietnam to besmirch the troops in the field and encourage Ho to extend the war. I can say this nation would be better off had he not served or preferably had he not been born.He is dirt.

All the Swift Boat Vets did was tell the truth about John F’ing Kerry. The truth is what sank his presidency (along with his treasonous behavior).

Kerry attempting to be Obama’s truth squad is like trying to blame the victim for the rape. “You see, if the victim wouldn't have been there, she wouldn't have gotten raped by my client, your honor.”

The truth will come out and Emperor Obama has no clothes, Senator Kerry. It's like what happened to you. You do remember the truth about your past, don't you?

The Veteran’s Dictionary:

Swiftboat: for others present at the time to tell the real truth about a claim of military prowess by one presently or formerly involved in a wartime operation

See above: I’m working on a veteran’s definition of “swiftboat” since the damn word has apparently worked its way into the lexicon.

We might as well respond with the real, truthful definition.

Meaning they're exposing your character. It's shocking that 8 years later he's learned nothing.

""swiftboat" President Obama with false and "ridiculous" claims"

Actually, "swiftboat" is defined as telling the truth about another lying, phony, sack of manure, democrat politician.

Pontius Pilate: “What is truth”. I am unsure whether or not to place a question mark on the end of that statement, or question.

Pontius Pilate epitomizes secular political thought. It means that “truth” can be crafted to obtain the greater good. The greater good can be whatever is desired.

If I am not mistaken, it was at the 10th anniversary of 9/11 Memorial service.

Of course on that day I was glued to A&E....they had 1/2 hour and hour long stories, from every perspective one can have.

I spent most of the day crying.

he received a dishonorable discharge from the Navy for participating in anti-war protests while on active duty and for meeting with the North Vietnamese in Paris to “negotiate” peace on his own (which is an act of treason), and that Jimmy Carter granted him a pardon for his crimes. <<<

Can any of that be documented????

It's documented in his military record, which is why he can't release it directly to the public.

Every copy he has ever released has been "examined" first by his lawyers.

We know Kerry's college grades because they were in his military records which were released to the press a few years back.

I don't know whether everything in the files was shown to the journalists or if they revealed everything they saw.

It's possible that there are problems with the records and that they don't say exactly what Kerry claims they say, but it's unlikely that Kerry received a dishonorable discharge and was somehow able to conceal it.

That would be harder to conceal than other discrepancies.
