    'We have to get angry, and organize around that," he told the audience of about 800 students at Brown University, deviating from his prepared text. ...And while Kerry's speech was part of an annual political lecture series at Brown, it had the air of a major political moment. The senator was surrounded by family members including his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, daughter Vanessa, and brother Cameron -- each a key member of his inner circle and each in a position to advise him on whether to make a 2008 run. They and the senator's aides scrutinized his performance from the...

    Saturday, September 17, 2005 Memo to Sen. Kerry TO: Sen. John F. Kerry FROM: William J. Dyer (a/k/a Beldar) RE: Limitations Spectacular lawyer though you may (or may not) be in your own right, I know your staff includes some agile and diligent legal minds. Nevertheless, in the interests of fairness, I feel obliged to remind you of the fact that Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry by John E. O'Neill and Jerome R. Corsi — which spent several weeks at No. 1 on the NYT Bestsellers List before last year's presidential election — was...

    US Senator John Kerry said Saturday after talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad he is hopeful that strained US-Syrian relations can be improved. Assad in return assured Kerry he is interested in dialogue with Washington. The former Democratic presidential candidate, who arrived in Damascus Friday, met for two hours with Assad before meeting separately with Foreign Minister Farouk a-Sharaa. The talks centered on the situation in Iraq and how to prevent militants from entering Iraq through Syria. "I think we found a great deal of areas of mutual interest, some common concerns and some possibilities for initiatives that could be...
  • Kerry Trashes Bush in Baghdad

    Visiting with U.S. troops in Baghdad on Thursday, failed presidential candidate John Kerry trashed Commander-in-chief George Bush for making "horrendous judgments" and "unbelievable blunders" that have undermined the war effort. In a series of demoralizing comments first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, the defeated Democrat griped, "What is sad about what's happening here now is that so much of it is a process of catching up from the enormous miscalculations and wrong judgments made in the beginning." Kerry said that because of the Bush administration's mistakes, "the job has been made enormously harder." Among the errors cited by the...

    ...The staggering defeat of the Democratic Party and its ever-accelerating death spiral weren't obvious from the election results. Two factors masked the extent of the party's trouble. Without the innovation of Internet-driven small-donor fund-raising and a corresponding surge in support from the youngest voters, John Kerry would have suffered a dramatically larger defeat.... Mr. Kerry was a weaker candidate than Mr. Gore. He lost so much ground among women, Hispanics, and other key groups, that the millions in Internet money, the most Herculean get-out-the-vote effort in party history, and the largest turnout of young voters in over a decade, couldn't...

    Of all the targets of the vitriol and attempted ambushes during the presidential campaign, I most admired John O'Neill of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth for his calm determination to stand his ground on his charges against John Kerry's Vietnam service in the book "Unfit for Command" that he co-authored. O'Neill was called a "liar" to his face on a number of TV appearances, and, on an Oct. 14 "Nightline," ABC-TV's Ted Koppel actually sent a crew to Vietnam to film alleged eyewitnesses in order to disprove one of the accounts — how Kerry won his Silver Star —...

    Former US presidential challenger John Kerry plans to use his Senate seat and Democrat supporters to remain a major voice in American politics despite his election loss.Friends and aides said he was assessing the feasibility of trying again for the presidency in 2008.But in a glum post-mortem to the presidential campaign, Senator Kerry's senior advisers said he lost the election because he had failed to turn it into a referendum on the economy.A pollster for Mr Kerry, Stanley Greenberg, said the campaign saw evidence that its position was slightly deteriorating among white rural voters 10 days before election day and...

    Hello everyone! I'm a newbie here and since finding Free Rebublic I have been inspired! I was very fortunate to hook up with a great group of folks and participate in a rally! The rally was hosted by Bob Chamberlain, whose wife "had to literally peal me off the ceiling when John Kerry started spewing his lies about Viet Nam". Bob has sponsored several rallies and I wish that I had found him and Free Republic sooner! We met in Raleigh, NC across from the UNC campus. Bob listens to one mans point of view, then proceeds to give...

    "bombastic ass" is not the antidote to "boorish ass" (or why Keith Olbermann Cannot Do Cleanup for Chris Matthews)   by Mia T, 8.20.04   perating under the false assumption, (a curious, 20th-century cable conceit), that "bombastic ass" is the antidote to "boorish ass," MSNBC schedulers have Keith Olbermann doing cleanup for Chris Matthews. Last night, Michelle Malkin easily dispensed with that silly notion. (See below.)   SOME POINTS TO PONDER, SWIFTLY Is Matthews a witless waterboy D who doesn't understand that 'self-inflicted' doesn't imply 'intentional'... or is he a colluding waterboy D who does?

    Are you having difficulty finding Unfit for Command locally, for reasons other than the publisher didn't print enough copies? The thread linked above has numerous examples of book store employees standing in the consumer's way when they try to find this book. Perhaps if FReepers list their experiences in one place we can see where the bottlenecks are (they seem to be scattered) and take action as appropriate to help the liberals now suppressing sales to see the error of their ways. mystery1 wrote on the above-linked thread: I live in San Diego and just called 2 Borders stores.

    Although John Kerry accumulated a Silver Star, a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts in a relatively brief 4-month tour in Vietnam as a Swift Boat skipper, many of those who served on the combat patrol vessels in that era have come out swinging against the Democratic presidential candidate: "We resent very deeply the false war crimes charges he made coming back from Vietnam in 1971 and repeated in the book "Tour of Duty." We think those cast an aspersion on all those living and dead, from our unit and other units in Vietnam. We think that he knew he...
