I guess Kerry really is as dumb as his mediocre college grades suggest. Check out his latest email to supporters, below.
Here's a guy who lost in 2004 due to being rightfully painted as a flip-flopper. So of what does he accuse W? Of being resolute! Throw us in that briar patch, Mr. Teresa, please!
Also, note his disingenuous claim that "I've never met an American who doesn't want to see America succeed in Iraq." Does Kerry expect us to believe that he hasn't met Michael Moore, an honored guest at Kerry's convention?
Last night the President had a chance to move the country forward by laying out a specific course of action to make our troops safer and rescue the mission in Iraq.
Instead, the President took us backwards -- backwards to campaign style rhetoric and unshakeable stubbornness.
Let me be clear about something. I've never met an American who doesn't want to see America succeed in Iraq. I've never met a veteran who doesn't fly the flag on the 4th of July with pride in our country. I've never met an American who doesn't believe in the greatness of our country and the strength of our ideals.
But I've met a lot of Americans who fear the President has no plan to get it right in Iraq -- and they woke up this morning feeling the same way.
The President and the administration need to get their story straight about what is happening in Iraq -- and how they are going to get our mission back on track.
From their 24th different rationale for war, to the Vice President and Secretary Rumsfeld telling us the insurgency is in its "final throes" while last night President Bush said it is more dangerous than ever, Americans just want to hear the truth.
They want leadership equal to our soldiers' sacrifice, and they know we can't win if our leaders can't even agree on the facts. This is a time for leadership, and a time for responsible answers to difficult problems.
Yesterday, I laid out a 9 point plan to get it right in Iraq. Here are 3 steps the President can take this weekend to start getting it right in Iraq and ensure greater security for our troops.
1) The President heads to Europe this weekend. He needs to bring home more commitments from our allies to shore up Iraq's borders, invest more in reconstruction and do more training of Iraqi troops. A secure and stable Iraq is in the best interest of every nation across Europe and the Middle East.
2) Send a message across the Middle East that Iraq's neighbor countries must do more to stop the rise of terrorism in Iraq. We need countries like Saudi Arabia to keep their commitment to help pay for reconstruction efforts in Iraq so the Iraqi people get electricity, water and better roads.
We also need help from Iraq's neighbors in shoring up the borders so foreign fighters and terrorists can't get in and can't get out. The President needs to take his tough message to the region and enlist support for our mission. The best way to stop the growth of terrorism is by enlisting more Arab allies.
3) Truly honor our troops' sacrifices in Iraq by immediately covering the one billion dollar shortfall in funding for veterans care this year here at home and increasing funding for armor and necessary supplies for our troops over in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Senator Byrd, Senator Murray, I and others have an amendment pending right now to address the critical funding shortage for veterans. The administration could send a powerful message about sacrifice and national unity if they act now to address this shortfall for the VA.
We need more than just words to get it right in Iraq. We need actions and focus and leadership. We saw what happened after 9/11, in the mountains of Tora Bora, when the administration took its eyes off the ball when it came to hunting down and capturing Osama Bin Laden. We can't afford to let the same thing happen in Iraq.
Our troops are depending on us and we can't let them down. It's time to bring the country together to get it right. No more excuses, no more spin, and no more dividing the country on partisan lines.
Americans have the resolve - we need action from the administration.
Something that limp-wristed, appeasing, Marxist Kerry will never have -- honest courage. Just the kind of scum we need in the White House, right???
Hey Kerry, go back to chasing skirts -- GWB will protect your country and all your assets.
Has ANYONE in an interview with Kerry EVER reminded him that in the late 90's, after Clinton signed the Iraqi Liberation Act, that John Kerry went on the Cokie Roberts show and told her he wanted American boots on the ground to force regime change!!!!!!
This was pre 9/11 and he talked about WMD and how it was important enough that we should go to war. He EVEN said we should do it unilaterally if we had to and had some derogatory words for France saying they would have a lot to answer for!!!!!
"Unshakeable Stubborness" == Conviction
Exactly. Something that it is evidently foreign to Kerry.
You just can't make this krap up! (Well, I guess Hanoi John can...)
Apropos of nothing, but using this thread to mention it, I'm watching PTI on ESPN as I write this. Notorious liberal host [but entertaining guy] Tony Kornheiser has invited James Carville onto the show, and Carville just mentioned that he appeared on SportsCenter yesterday.
Two Carville appearances on ESPN in two days? I know ESPN is owned by ABC, but has liberal bias gone crazy there?
..as Ann would say, "the party that keeps on giving"..
What a chump.
GLGB, I thought I was still on his E-mail list? Haven't gotten this yet.
You have the secret password, hand shake?
"Yesterday, I laid out a 9 point plan to get it right in Iraq. Here are 3 steps the President can take this weekend to start getting it right in Iraq and ensure greater security for our troops. "
WTFO? does John Kerry think he's president, maybe he should audition for a role as president on the "Left Wing" TV show!
Hi Springman: good news, bad news. I didn't ping this to my list - I normally reserve that for reports on liberal bias in the media - so your failure to receive it was not due to your absence from the list. But on the other hand, I went back to make sure you were still on the list, and didn't find you. I've added you back!
GLGB, forget the last post, just got it.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
I meant the the Kerry E-mail list. However, now that I'm off work, I should have asked to be on your list.
Woke up this morning, saw Kerry on the Today show; good thing I didn't get sick when my wife was getting getting ready for work.
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
Something I thank God for every day.
I watched Kerry's Today Show appearance this morning, but it was so trite and predictable that I couldn't bring myself to post a report on it. I think the guy is really a borderline laughingstock, even in Dem circles.
