You forgot John McCain - and anyone else who dare mistake Kerry's plain words as an attack on the troops when Kerry did so routinely in the 70s - is crazy.

Kerry is also blaming the White House when it was talk radio that had it out soon after the words plopped from his lips.

Fox now getting comments from a retired Major General reminding us about the statements he made about the Vietnam vets. Major also points out that he never did apologize to the troops, and says he is sick of the liberal elitist attitude about the military.

I wish CNN would interview some of our troops ACTUALLY IN IRAQ right now--

CNN, you mean commie news network? They won't interview our troops, they'd rather show them being shot by a sniper!!!

I came late to the party, and someone may have posted it already, but your post reminded me of when Lurch went orange and someone photoshopped his head as a pumpkin. Seems the perfect day for that picture!

Why is McCain the ONLY so far expressing outrage?

Where is everyone elses outrage in Congress??

I think the entire the Republican Senate and House should be on TV condemning it!! How about a joint resolution from ALL Republicans in the House and Senate CONDEMNING an insult like that from a US Senator!

And then demand that all democrats JOIN them in a joint condemnation!!

I am not a bit surprised.

Maj. Burton Moore on Fox right now...and the first thing he brought up was Kerry's testimony after the Vietnam War...saying he has a HISTORY of denigrating the military.

["And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the--of--the historical customs, religious customs."

You leave out the best part of that quote... the very next thing he said -- "The Iraqis ought to be doing that."

I hope so. I was a little disappointed in Britt's analysis that Kerry was upset because of what happened to him in 2004 with the swiftboat attacks. Britt said that Kerry regrets not responding to them because he thought they would just go away given his military record. Now he is going to respond to such charges. The problem is that Kerry couldn't refute the charges.

Yea, he picked the wrong fight to bring McCain into it.

After all, McCain is one of the ones that Kerry accused of burning and staffing (with 50 caliber) villages, killing and raping civilians.

Butt hay Kerry was attacked by a grain of rice...

I bet by 6pm tonight, most will issue statements- just in time for the nightly news. They were probably waiting to see if Kerry used his press conference to apologize. He didn't, so the condemnations will come out. Do not be surprised if Dems also condemn Kerry- they want no part of this.

I'm guessing their spiking the ball on the 10 yard line.

Which is technically a backward pass, hence a fumble.

Kerry is scheduled to campaign tomorrow for Bob Casey in PA and attend a "veterans rally" for Tim Waltz in MN.

Will the candidates still want Kerry to campaign for them? I would think they would. The nutjobs loved this "being a man" speech.

I was pretty surprised that Brit downplayed the fact that we all just witnessed a mentally disturbed man who wants to be president.

I've never in my life seen a United States politician have such a public meltdown and sound like such an ass.

Yes, I agree the first statement could be excused to some minor degree on fatigue and so forth, but the defense today is totally without any excuse at all. He must want out of public life. I do not imagine he will either continue his Presidential quest or, even, his Senatorial career.

One of those Vets that Kerry has been campaigning for, Patrick Muprhy, has debated six times with Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, and Fitzpatrick has cleaned his clock every time. Curt Weldon has debated Joe Sestak too, and beaten him like a drum. George Allen has not shied away from debating Jim Webb. I don't know what the hell Kerry is talking about when he says Republicans are afraid to debate veterans. It's a nice soundbite but the facts say otherwise. That one is easily debunked and will make him look even stupider.

The only candidates I know of anywhere who have limited debates with their opponents are Bobby Casey Jr. and Hillary Clinton.
