Exclusive: Kerry Says UBL Tape Cost Him Election (American voters acted out of fear)
Fox ^ | November 21, 2004

Posted on 11/16/2012 2:59:55 PM PST by Arthurio

John Kerry (search) believes he lost to President Bush because of the video from Usama bin Laden (search) that surfaced just days before the Nov. 2 presidential election.

The Massachusetts senator told FOX News' senior correspondent Geraldo Rivera that he believes he lost because the tape may have scared the American electorate.

-snip-

Kerry went on saying the Bush administration is planning "a right wing assault on values and ideals we hold most deeply" and that diverse opinions are being "eliminated" from the State Department and CIA with the personnel reshuffling, and the Bush Cabinet is being remade to "rubber stamp policies that will undermine Social Security, balloon the deficit, avoid real reforms in health care and education, weaken homeland security, and walk away from critical allies around the world."

Kerry also vowed to "continue to challenge this administration" on a variety of issues, ranging from election standards and health care for children.

I don’t seem to recall the media, Democrats, or even the RINO scumbags that are yapping right now say much when Kerry was coming up with excuses for his loss, or his sore loser attacks on Bush and vows to fight against Bush’s policies even though Bush and Kerry had lost.

Apparently the MSM covered up how his asking “Can I get me a huntin’ license he-yah?” was actually a license to hunt Bin Laden. You know, like James Bond’s license to kill.

Maybe it’s because you were a traitor and went to Paris to negotiate with the North Vietnamese while still an officer in the Navy, horse face.

I guess John the traitor Kerry forgot that he had called 2,500,000 Viet Nam Soldiers baby killers and war criminals. He dissed Afghan and Iraq veterans lately also. We know about your Dishonorable Discharge and being busted down to the lowest seaman rank. You were whitewashed by Carter so you could take a position in the Senate. Now you want to be Sec. State or Sec Defense. I sure hope not.

I got about as far as Geraldo Rivera and stopped reading the article....

Yet maybe it was Kerry knocking down the SS agent when he was skiing? Or was it the photo of Kerry wind surfing? Or was it the photo of Kerry wearing the bunny ears with the 2 girls?

And my personal favorite.....after calling the troops stupid, some of the military made that banner. just good times with the traitor Kerry.

Wait one more wasn’t he in a photo with traitor Jane?

Wait................ just to many to choose from.

No — it was Ronald Reagan’s majestic funeral in June 2004 at a time when Bush’s numbers were falling that rallied the troops and did Kerry in.

Kerry, like Gore, and Carter, is a vain, sour, man who will for ever be making excuses for his loss. Thanks God he lost.

And God help us keep him well away from the Defense Department.

We have abject traitors to this nation and all it stands for running the ocuntry and thank God for the US House of Representatives and now 30 Governors. May they not get squeamish and may they stand strong for our Republic.

Politically we are in a Valley Forge moment, when true heroes can stand up and shine in the harshness of the moment.

I pray to God they will.

Paper-cut Kerry, a traitor, lost the election for several reasons, here is just a couple.

“.....they had personally 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 in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan....”

Oh, and he’s a nauseating sissy boy.

Some of us really don’t forget.

He lost because he turned his back on Vietnam Veterans and they turned their back on him. Now he wants to be Secretary of State or Secretary of Defense and I sincerely hope the Vietnam Veterans make sure it doesn’t happen.

I remember a video clip I saw back in the 2004 campaign, of Kerry speaking with a group of organizers at a campaign appearance somewhere in Ohio. He was getting ready to make a campaign speech on a stage, and was just speaking informally with the organizers about the campaign, his prospects for winning Ohio, etc.

I couldn't believe what I was listening to. This wasn't the John Kerry you saw in his public appearances. He had a totally simplistic outlook on the campaign, as if he were running for class president in a small-town high school. He actually sounded like he was retarded.

If you need a picture of a fraud, see John Kerry. Seriously, the guy sleeps with the enemy over the years. Thank the Lord, he never made it to the presidency. Now, the dems have much more fraud set in place. The dems behind this and their media have reserved seats in hell. Touchy feeling stuff will not justify their means. It will come back to them.

John Kerry lost because he was a Traitor back in 1972.

No,John Friggin Kerry...you lost because your “look of sincerity” falls well short of the mastery shown by Osama Obama since his days as a street radical in Chicago.I mean...be serious...you could never pull off that photo op of his in NJ a few days before the election.

Kerry seemed to be mimicking Clinton. Fortunately, he didn’t have Clinton’s charm.

Clinton is a sleazy bastard but he knows how to play up his charisma.

John Kerry lost because Buckhead here on Free Republic showed that Dan Rather’s document on Sixty Minutes about GWB’s National Guard service was a fake.

Nobody even remembers the video he's talking about.

He can't admit to himself, but he lost because he's a pompous, horse-faced jackass who faked injuries in Vietnam, turned his back on his brothers in arms and accused them of war crimes even though he had no evidence, came home and threw his unearned medals away, married a couple of broads for their money and nauseated everybody with his slimy nature and arrogant attitude.
