Kerry furious over new attacks
Seattle Post Intelligencer ^ | November 1, 2006 | Joel Connelly

Posted on 11/01/2006 9:30:26 AM PST by Dane

With the media machine of the political right attacking him over his remark about Americans "stuck in Iraq," and President Bush calling it "shameful," Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., on Tuesday reacted with fury and defiance.

"I'm not going to sit around and let these guys create a phony controversy," said the Democrats' 2004 presidential nominee, faulted for not firing back while the Swift Boat controversy burned his candidacy.

Kerry was in Seattle to do a fundraiser for Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., and afterward he sat down for a lengthy interview. The words that tumbled out of him were not the apology demanded by Bush.

Well sKerry, you may not want "to sit around and watch these guys create a phony controversy" but you'll have to sit and watch us create a REAL one. Now go on home and sulk.

I see. So even if you believe Kerry's story line that he was actually zinging Bush, that's not an "attack" but anyone responding to Kerry's vicious partisanship, well that is an attack?? This is the ridiculous, Alice in Wonderland mind of a liberal. Forget Kerry's vile remarks attacking the president and our troops! Nothing wrong with that! But anyone who replies is an "attacker!"

PLEASE do the right thing Senator Kerry--your supporters will thank you if you DO NOT resign, DO NOT apologize, and DO NOT SHUT UP! Keep speaking truth to power, 24/7, between now and election day--America can only be saved if you keep this issue alive!

Yours,

Karl Rove

He is such a narcissist. If he cared about his party, at all, he would have apologized and been contrite....it would have been bad, but not like it is now...But all he cares about is himself. I WILL NOT BE SWIFT BOATED AGAIN! Oh my...psychiatrists will have a field day! THANK GOD he was never our President.

Of course, not that the Seattle Post Intelligencer belongs to any "media machine", that cooperates in "attacks" of any kind.

Oh no, not at all.......

That being said, if it was your mission in life to let these guys create a phony controversy, you're doing it perfectly.

If the democrats felt half as much hatred for our enemies as they do President Bush and Republicans, the war might be over right now.

Kerry can find some support for his indefensible remarks in Seattle but there is a lot of country between the elitist outposts of Boston and Seattle in which will give Kerry no relief.

"We will not be Swift Boated," House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California said in an interview during a recent Seattle visit.

Why would we bother? You do such a great job of torpedoing your own campaigns and routinely self-destruct. We'll just sit back and watch the sneak previews today and roll credits on November 8th.

Dear Lord,

if it would be the least bit fitting . . . and it appears that it would from my finite perspective . . .

would you allow this blooming idiot to decompensate to the point of being hospitalized?

It might be eternally educational to him. It sure would to a lot of onlookers.

Failling that . . . how about him just continuing to spew such nonsense that he makes an utter and terminal fool of his public life. Let every person in Mass. see what an utter vacuum head they have representing them. Let them wretch and gag at the mention of his name. Let them heave and vomit at his picture.

Please, Lord, remove this traitor from public life ASAP. And all the better at his own hand . . . er mouth.
