Casey to Welcome Kerry to Philadelphia Tonight for Fundraiser

Pittsburgh - According to today's Philadelphia Inquirer, Bob Casey Jr. made the following comments about John Kerry's disparaging remarks yesterday:

"From what I can gather, Kerry botched a joke. That's what he said, and I take him at his word. He served in combat. Last time I checked, the president and the vice president did not. The White House and the Santorum forces should get to work on dealing with the real problems in Iraq. The first thing they should do is fire Mr. Rumsfeld instead of spending a lot of time trashing Democrats." (Jennifer Loven, "'04 foes exchange fire anew on troops, war, education," The Associated Press via The Philadelphia Inquirer, November 1, 2006)

Here's what John Kerry said yesterday during a speech in California, "You know, education -- if you make the most of it, you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

Vince Galko, campaign manager for Santorum 2006, "This wasn't a joke as Bob Casey contends. Casey needs to acknowledge these comments for what they were - disparaging to the honorable men and women serving in the armed services - and denounce them. We've known that Bob Casey is nothing more than a shallow mouth piece for the talking points assigned to him, but for Casey to not know that John Kerry crossed the line is deeply troubling. Bob Casey needs to rethink his comments and call on Kerry to apologize. Perhaps he can do so when John Kerry joins him for a fundraiser tonight in Philadelphia."

Maybe I didn't study hard enough, but I'm having trouble understanding why serving in combat makes one qualified to botch a joke.

Santorum is on a roll! He has got to get this message out to the fools of PA. I'm sorry if you live and work in PA and are proud of your state etc but it is FULL OF FOOLS! Casey has just shown his true colors and stuck Kerry's foot in his mouth.

Casey never studied Latin apparently - Si tacuisses, philosiphus manuisses - if he'd kept his mouth shut, he'd been thought to be clever.

I live in Pennsylvania, and the fools in question reside en masse mainly in Pittsburg, Philadelphia, and Harrisburg. The rural part of the Commonwealth is overwhelmingly Conservative, but the sheer numbers in the cities leave the overall political landscape always hanging in the balance.

I only glanced Casey's biography, but I'm having trouble finding the part about him serving in combat. For that matter, he didn't even do something simplistic and uneducated during his youth, like landing fighter jets on aircraft carriers.

Kerry needs to APOLOGIZE for the BLATANT AND TRANSPARENT LIE he made up to obfuscate (I'm sure that JFK would help all military personnel look up the definition of that word) and rewrite what he said!!

No more fake 'manufactured' and insecere apologies about the original INSULT--

HE NEEDS TO APOLOGIZE FOR THE LIE HE MADE UP TO GLOSS IT OVER!!!

Hello,

I am trying to remember if I have ever had this much fun. Casey endorses Kerry's comments at the exact same time that Her Thighness prompts a Fox News Gong by announcing that the same comments are inappropriate.

Today is shaping up to be better than yesterday!

Glad to be here, MOgirl

George w. Bush flew F-102 fighters in the National Guard. 400 hours of flight time.

He could have had a cushy desk job, but he flew one of the most difficult and dangerous fighters of the time.

John Podhertz of NY Post/NRO Corner fame thinks that Kerry's gaff might actually help democrats such as Ford, Cardin, Casey and McCaskill. He thinks it might provide them with a moment to stand up to their own party and show independence and courage - their " Sistah Souljah" moment.

Oops, I guess Casey didn't get the memo. Idiot.

Welcome.

Instead of apologizing and getting this issue over with--Kerry continues to insult the intelligence of EVERYONE--by not only REFUSING to apologize--

but by continuing to SPEW HIS HATE, VITRIOL, ANGER, and VENOM as the discussion about his utter CONTEMPT for the military continues.

Kerry is absolutely SHAMELESS. What a disgusting person.

What a fool this Casey has demonstrated to the people of PA.

But just like here in Tn., there are many fools who will vote for these jerks.

Here in Tn. I wished the election would be over with.
I swear I believe Harold Ford Jr. is going to true to preaching the gospel.

In to days interviews with Ford, if one did not know who he was they would swear he was an evangelist.

Seems all the politicos become religious the closer it becomes to voting date.

Maybe, in a Kerryesque moment, Casey can endorse Kerry's comments before he doesn't endorse Kerry's comments.
