Bob Kerrey Calls Obama a Delusional Liar; Renders Himself MSM Nonperson
NewsBusters ^ | March 29, 2014 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 03/29/2014 4:52:42 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks.

Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect him to become an MSM nonperson. Such seems to already be the fate of former presidential candidate and U.S. senator Bob Kerrey. It is no surprise that his extended criticisms of Obama appeared in in a Daily Mail article in Britain, not in America where the shunning seems to have already begun. Here is what Kerrey has to say about Obama which you most likely won't see in any major liberal news outlet in America:

~~~ Bob Kerrey Calls Obama a Delusional Liar~~~

Well, I can’t find any logical fallacy / error with that statement.

The advocacy media would be all over this story if Christie hadn’t blocked some traffic. /fey

In the 1990's he also referred to BillyBob Blythe as 'an unusually good liar".Sounds like this former Senator...and combat veteran...is inclined to call it as he sees it.

Regardless of whose feelings might be bruised.

I don’t ‘think’ so. He was ‘torpedoed’ out of the ‘lime light
by referring to WJC as

‘not only a liar BUT an accomplished Liar’ (close)

Yes, he did get awarded the Medal of Honor -
he was the REAL deal in Vietnam, a Navy SEAL.

Yes. He got it on the island (Hon Tre) near Nha Trang where I spent 15 months of my life (67-69) and earned my call sign...Portcall 24.

“”In the 1990’s he also referred to BillyBob Blythe as ‘an unusually good liar””

I’m glad you posted that..I was trying to remember his exact words about Clinton; unusually good liar or exceptionally good liar. I have to say that I don’t know how much to trust a person who only takes the stage to accuse someone of lying. Where has he been all this time???

We don’t need him to tell us that both Clinton and obozo are liars so why does he bother?

Kerrey is only saying this because Obama is black.

Everything you read about Hillary! from the state-run media will be pimping her.

Count on it.

Thank you for the kind words. I felt honored to serve then as I do now. And may I also say that your sacrifice of service is truly appreciated by many more than ever say thank you. Warmest regards.

Yes thank you for your service.

I was in the merchant marine for 15 years and was stationed in Diego Garcia for six months on a tanker carrying gasoline. Our ship was under charter to the Navy.

This is clearly not a racial attack on Obama! It is more of an ... anti-gay attack on Obama.

Thanks for your kind words. I had a dear friend who since passed and served in Merchant Marines during WWII. He was right there at D-Day and watched fellow members of MM killed when ships were hit. When the war was over he went home and resumed his life. Never a thank you or a note or anything recognizing his service. I once bought him a book entitled, “The Forgotten Service”. The AF Tankers out of Diego Garcia could never have supported the mission without your service. Thank you so much for serving.

hellary claimed she once visited a recruiting office in Arkansas to inquire about joining the Marines. and if you believe that one..........SMH

Yes, he did. However, he was still one of the most anti-gunowner governors and senators that I can remember in Nebraska. Being a hero in the military does not automatically mean that you are pro-2nd amendment.
