Skip to comments.He Sucked Less Then Romney
Posted on 03/31/2014 3:24:28 PM PDT by Mean Daddy
Former U.S. Sen. Bob Kerrey is speaking his mind about the president, telling London's Daily Mail that President Barack Obama suffers from self-delusion and that he only won in 2012 because he sucked less than Romney.
Kerrey went on to rap Obama for his oft-repeated health care promise that under Obamacare, Americans could keep insurance plans they liked.
He had to know he was misleading the audience, the former Nebraska governor told the British newspaper last week.
Kerrey also said that 2009 was the wrong time to attempt a health care reform, as the nation was just starting to recover from a deep recession. When it became clear the president was determined, however, it was a political mistake to give up on the public option of his health care plan, Kerrey said.

OK, so what’s Kerrey’s angle? There’s always an angle......
:: the former Nebraska governor told the British newspaper last week ::
Off-shore patriotism. Jefferson would have had him flogged!
I think the same could be said, that Kerrey sucked less than...someone. Maybe Debra Winger?
After having his ass handed to him in the Senatorial race, he packed up his carpetbag and hasn’t been seen in Nebraska since. And good riddance.
Zell Miller type Democrats are rare these days. I’m not saying Kerry is the new Miller but its refreshing to see a Democrat not parrot the party line like a zombie.
I agree. Is he going to come out of retirement again, like Lautenberg did?
He’s been out of politics for over a decade, so he can say what he likes. His wikipedia page even lists him as an agnostic.

promise lie that under Obamacare, Americans could keep insurance plans they liked.
pre-positioning for 2016 would be my guess...
Romney did suck. A lot. But more than Obama? Not sure. Closet socialist Keynesian versus openly socialist Keynesian.
I wouldn’t mind seeing him run against Clinton. He would throw a monkey wrench into the primaries, and the mediots would lap up his faux east coast elitist stature. It would split the party and force Clinton to spend more money and energy before the general election.
second thought....he’d be the only candidate who openly criticized 0bama...that would get him a lot of press attention.
Either that or he is truly out of politics so he can express an honest opinion.
Let’s face it - they both sucked.
Might that suggest if he sucks more, we'll get someone good this time?
Easily one of the biggest face palm moments in debate history.
I wish you guys would stop discussing oral sex or politics or whatever - giving me a stomach ache
No. I think you're wrong. He's just disgusted with Obama's dishonesty -- not, necessarily, with his policies but his lying about them. Kerrey is not a dishonest man.
Bill Clinton says it’s not about sucking less or more it’s about the quality
Sarah Palin’s candidate defeated Kerry, for our only 2012 Senate seat pickup.
Did you miss this from the article?
it was a political mistake to give up on the public option of his health care plan, Kerrey said.
Nothing Zell Millerish about that statement, he's saying obamacare is not socialist/communist enough.
He's a pea brained liberal through and through.
Not trying to be right or wrong here just stating a guess. Makes one wonder if he can come clean about this then what else is he not saying that he’s disgusted about.
For a man who was awarded the CMH, if he could find it in himself to bare it all to the public how screwed up the DC really is he could probably win the presidency
Many here on Free Republic agreed with Bob Kerrey on this point. The ugly truth is that Free Republic was a net positive for Barack Obama in his campaign for reelection. I don't think that things have worked out very well.
She’s a semi-professional.
This last election, a lot of Democrats voted for Obama for precisely the same reason a lot of Republicans voted for Romney. They weren't voting for their guy, they were voting against the other guy.
So everybody was going to lose either way.
Yeah, that voting "against" stuff, works every time.
You know, NautiNurse, I am becoming convinced that these are not typos. I think these posters really don't understand the differencce between "then" and "than."
