Skip to comments.FLASH: McCain Calls On Kerry To Apologize
Posted on 10/31/2006 8:59:29 AM PST by milwguy
Senator Kerry owes an apology to the many thousands of Americans serving in Iraq, who answered their country's call because they are patriots and not because of any deficiencies in their education. Americans from all backgrounds, well off and less fortunate, with high school diplomas and graduate degrees, take seriously their duty to our country, and risk their lives today to defend the rest of us in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.
They all deserve our respect and deepest gratitude for their service. The suggestion that only the least educated Americans would agree to serve in the military and fight in Iraq, is an insult to every soldier serving in combat, and should deeply offend any American with an ounce of appreciation for what they suffer and risk so that the rest of us can sleep more comfortably at night. Without them, we wouldn't live in a country where people securely possess all their God-given rights, including the right to express insensitive, ill-considered and uninformed remarks.
Story picking up steam at the speed of the internet.........Just posted on Armytimes online website. Now that branch of the military serving overseas will soon know what there almost commander in chief thinks of their service..........http://www.armytimes.com/story.php?f=1-292925-2323006.php
ROFLMAO. The best part is him calling someone else a stuffed shirt. Could he be any funnier?
Encouraging, lets hope Helperin comes through.
Astounding. I thought it was Scrappleface. Imagine how close we came to "President Kerry." Yikes.
McCain has more credibility on this issue than any oither prominent Republican, and his slapdown of Kerry was excellent.
Yeah, it's up at reply 35.
You are kidding, right???
Surely, Kerry's people didn't put THIS piece of 3rd grade writing out as a "rebuttal"???
As John Podhoretz just said over at NRO, Kerry stuck his own silver foot in his mouth and now blames Republicans for it.
The Kerry excuse won't wash.
The correct NRSC response is to have military mothers in tears in every city with Santorum, Allen, Corker, et al and demand that their opponent repudiate Kerry's insensitivity. Demand that Casey tell Kerry not to come to PA etc. Time for hardball. The RATS have shown their ass. Kick it.
Can you post a link to it, ,or ping me on the thread....thanks..
Absolutely, astonishingly, incredibly amazing.
Double down for all three networks ?
That's not true. If it were, the DUmp would be empty. I smell a flip-flop coming on.
That I believe, his response to being called out on it, that's hard to swallow. Wow, though, there is a link showing the press release... he's an idiot bastard.
Link at reply 79.
The McCain slap down was terrific but insufficient. Raise the rhetoric. Today.
OK, Kerry, then go to the troops and lecture them about their ignorance. Since you seem to think only those that have served can criticise you. Let's see what they have to say to you.
Instead of Lurch for President maybe the chant should be
LURCH FOR LYNCHIN'!
I'm not in tears, I'm too pissed off to cry!
Limbaugh just read the arrogant reponse from lurch. Several paragraphs which tells folks that there will be no apology.Screw an apology from this ass, he wouldn't mean it anyway.
