  • 4 Things You Need to Know About Secretary of State Nominee John Kerry

    Don't let his reputation as a peacenik fool you. John Kerry is no anti-interventionist.On Dec. 21, President Obama nominated Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. The move was widely expected after Susan Rice, the only other prominent candidate, dropped out of consideration when the Obama administration’s response to a terror attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya promised to derail her nomination.Now serving his fifth term in the Senate, Kerry is best known for his failed 2004 presidential run, and the "swift boat" attacks he suffered during it. While America may never know a...
  • Ogonowski TV ad hits Kerry's record

    Republican Senate candidate Jim Ogonowski took his attacks against Sen. John Kerry's record to a new level yesterday -- television. Ogonowski, one of two Republicans vying to oust Kerry this fall, launched the first TV ad of the campaign season. The one-minute ad will air on cable stations throughout the state for the next three weeks, his campaign said. "People are absolutely fed up with the fact that he has been there so long and passed only eight pieces of legislation (since 1999)," Ogonowski said. "There's some real excitement in this state if you get to talk to people about...

  • John Kerry still has not signed his Form 180; removes Navy records from web

    one vet's opinion | 6/21/06
    It is now 17 months since John Kerry "promised" to sign his Form 180, allowing the Navy to release to the public his Navy record. He lied. Not only has he not signed his 180, he has removed from the web what few, edited records he had released prior to the 2004 presidential election. This is the man who is again running form president in 2008. The man who garnered the support of only five other senators in demanding we do a "kerry" and run from Iraq with our tails between our legs, a la his disservice in Vietnam.

    There are those who are already so entrenched in their hatred of Kerry, that no official Navy records, no verified eye-witness testimony, no facts will every cause them to re-evaluate their point of view. However, I am assured that there are many who, regardless of their political background, are interested the facts and see knowledge as an evolutionary process, and who take the time to research their opinions and speak from a foundation of fact. It clearly is not necessary to like John Kerry, or agree with his record as a Senator, but it seems to me that a vicious...

    Two years ago, Charleston's Billy Schachte was caught in the undertow of presidential campaign debates over the circumstances of John Kerry's first Purple Heart. He had commanded Kerry's first Vietnam combat mission and his recollection of the experience was very much different than Kerry's published account. Today, this tussle over truth and confusion simmers on just beneath the public's attention. That's likely to change soon. Television news veteran Marvin Kalb and his daughter are working through a Harvard-based grant to publish a book that will include commentary on the effectiveness and the credibility of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth,...

    1. Today is the 345th day since John Kerry promised to release his entire Navy record, including his 1972 Other Than Honorable Discharge and his alleged Official Letter of Reprimand for meeting with the enemy in 1971. 2. With all that free time on his hands, Kerry's minions continue with their campaign of personal destruction against the people who successfully informed the world of the senator's crimes in time to help defeat Kerry in 2004.

    It will come as a surprise to most filmgoers that they've been waiting 30 years to see "Winter Soldier." But now that they have the chance, they won't want to miss it. This extraordinary documentary, having its first theatrical release, not only revisits events during the Vietnam War that have uncanny resonance today but also stands as a riveting example of pure filmic storytelling. An unadorned, black-and-white record of a three-day gathering in Detroit in 1971, "Winter Soldier" turns the camera on the testimony of former soldiers invited by Vietnam Veterans Against the War to share accounts of atrocities they...

    editorial,Chicago Tribune on Wednesday, June 8: snip ....Grades do measure important attributes: tenacity, organization, calculation and, especially, persistence. They do not, though, reliably measure passion, kindness or integrity. No matter what our transcripts say, most of us come to realize that desire trumps talent - and that, if you have a lousy attitude, neither of those strengths will bring fulfillment, or much else.

    -SNIP-What is presidential intelligence and how much does it really matter? We can all recite the lists of ostentatiously brilliant presidents who faltered (Wilson, Hoover, etc.) and apparent plodders who triumphed (Truman). When I was covering the Reagan White House in 1981, all his top aides were wholesaling Oliver Wendell Holmes's famous comment about Franklin Roosevelt's possessing "a second-rate intellect, but a first-rate temperament." In the end, Reagan confounded scholars, journalists and voters alike. In an obituary essay, his biographer Edmund Morris referred first to Reagan's "intelligence" and later to his "ignorance." To be fair, innate intelligence has to do...

    LA Times ^ | 6/8/05
    WASHINGTON — All through last year's presidential race, Vietnam-era critics of Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) charged that he was trying to hide something by refusing to authorize the public release of his entire military and medical file. On Tuesday, Kerry provided access to his complete records. The long-awaited documents contained no bombshells, and his enemies still were not satisfied. The 180-page sheaf of medal commendations, officer's fitness reports and medical entries released under federal guidelines by Kerry's Senate office provided a few new nuggets of information about his 1968 to 1969 stint as a Swift boat commander during the...

    Reader John Boyle writes: I have been yelling since last year that the Navy does not have Kerry's records, nor does DoD. The Navy has always been Kerry's hide-out. The Navy is covered by the Privacy Laws. You're a lawyer, right? The SF 180 is generically addressed to the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. These records are 30 to 40 years old. They are history! They do not stay at Navy Personnel Command forever. It seems to me that all of Kerry's tortured rhetoric on this subject attests to the fact that he was having his records vetted,...
  • Did Kerry Turn Over Full File To The Boston Globe? (CQ, Malkin weigh in)

    June 07, 2005 Did Kerry Turn Over Full File To The Boston Globe? The Boston Globe claims this morning that John Kerry has finally made his entire service record publicly available, at least to them. Michael Kranish, who wrote unquestioning articles about Kerry's service in Viet Name before and during the presidential campaign, proclaims that the release vindicates Kerry -- but even Kranish can't add up why Kerry kept the file secret: Senator John F. Kerry, ending at least two years of refusal, has waived privacy restrictions and authorized the release of his full military and medical records. The records,...
  • Kerry's Yale Grades Similar to Bush's

    BOSTON - Sen. John F. Kerry (news, bio, voting record)'s grade average at Yale University was virtually identical to President Bush's record there, despite repeated portrayals of Kerry as the more intellectual candidate during the 2004 presidential campaign. Kerry had a cumulative average of 76 and got four Ds his freshman year — in geology, two history courses and political science, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday. His grades improved with time, and he averaged an 81 his senior year and earned an 89 — his highest grade — in political science as a senior. "I always told my dad that...

    Newly released Navy records of Sen. John Kerry show the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, who was portrayed as the intellectual superior of President Bush, actually received a lower academic average than his rival while studying at Yale, including five Ds. The transcript of grades, which Kerry has always declined to release, was part of a set of Naval records requested and finally received by the Boston Globe. Last month, Kerry gave the Navy permission to release the records to the paper, something he refused to do during last fall's campaign. While Bush and Kerry were at Yale, the school had...
