For all the complaints about him, Kucinich was the only one holding together the antiwar sentiment. The Republicans in OH gerrymandered him out of his HOR seat and saved an incompetent and racist Obama lapdog.
As much as I detest the man Kerry did wear the uniform and he did serve in Vietnam, so I do not think ‘chicken hawk’ is applicable (at least not from my understanding of the word)
Blast from the past:
‘Iraq is a long way from Ohio, but what happens there matters a great
deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use
nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is
the greatest security threat we face. And it is a threat against which
we must, and will, stand firm.
In discussing Iraq, we begin by knowing that Saddam Hussein, unlike
any other leader, has used weapons of mass destruction even against
his own people. In fact, he is a repeat offender, having used them
both in the battle and against his people.’
(but the talking points became Bush was the war monger.)
He's actually starting to agree with Sarah Palin on a few things, i.e. Obama is a feckless idiot.
“I expect the antiwar left to start calling Obama and Kerry chicken hawks and warmongers any minute now...still waiting...yep still waiting...(crickets)”
Cindy Sheehan removed them from the public eye when she held Obama to the same standard as Bush II; we never heard from the peaceniks again (I guess they’re in the shadow-world with the homeless people, awaiting the return of a Republican administration to set them free upon the media cameras).
