Iowa Candidate Asks Kerry to Cancel Campaign Visit
12 WPRI Eyewitness News (Fox - Providence ^ | October 31, 2006 | Associated Press

Posted on 10/31/2006 7:44:43 PM PST by Lancey Howard

DES MOINES, Iowa A Democratic Congressional candidate from Iowa is canceling a campaign event later this week with Senator John Kerry.

Brucy Braley says Kerry's recent comments about the Iraq war were inappropriate. Braley's decision to distance himself from Kerry came as a furor grew from comments Kerry made about the Iraq War during a campaign stop in California on Monday.

Quotes from John Kerry, just to refresh our memory:

"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," Kerry said. "Whether you like it or not ... Iraqis should be doing that."

"They told stories at times 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, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country,"

Let Kerry keep yakking, he is actually doing the Republicans a favor by showing his true colors (and that of the Donks as well).

I am confused. Why would there be any furor over Kerry's comments about the Iraq War? The MSM has assured me that the public agrees with the democrats about the Iraq War. They don't support the War in any way shape or form. Thus, why would a crack about our troops in Iraq cause democrats any concern?

Could it be perhaps that the MSM's action line on Iraq has missed the point? The public is not for quiting, but for achieving victory in Iraq. Kerry's comments serve as a stark reminder that the democrats are for quitting, something thatthey have tried to make the public forget. I certainly hope the Republicans drive that point home.

Yay! This story has legs up until at least tomorrow. And if Kerry holds out doesn't give a decent apology until Thursday, this will take over the week in the media.

Thank you Kerry for the November surprise.

He'll never give an apology. You need to know John Kerry. He's never wrong. And if he is, he certainly won't admit it in public! NEVER! This goes on THROUGH election day. Dems will commit suicide trying to throw him under a bus, but the bus will run them all over...

I caught part of the rebroadcast of Mark Levin's radio show tonight on the way home from a play and he was posing a very good question. Why are the Democrat candidates who are former members of the military not jumping to the defense of their fellow soldiers? He particularly called on Jim Webb to condemn what Kerry said. I think George Allen ought to call Webb on it the first chance he gets. Mark thinks that Webb and others have been told to keep quiet.

You do not want Kerry to resign or be removed.

He is only one idiot one world socialist lefty.

But in his postion in the public eye, with his big mouth, he has the capability to wreck the careers of maybe a dozen or so of his ilk.

Leave him in office. Give him a microphone and watch the fun.

We need him a lot worse than the dims need him.

Don't I remember that there is a species of desert snake that eats its young, so the newly hatched have to scramble for cover before mama gobbles them up? Current events made me think of that.
