Skip to comments.John Kerry: Rude, Arrogant, and Foul-Mouthed
Posted on 03/26/2004 4:34:07 PM PST by knak
I learned some new things about John Kerry in the last few weeks. The first is that Mr. Kerry is not a very good snowboarder (he fell six times in one run). And second, he is an arrogant, self deluded jerk (he blamed his falls not on his lack of skill at a very difficult sport, but because "that son a b*tch" Secret Service Agent got in his way). Kerry's reactions to his falls while snowboarding indicate something very disturbing in his character (or lack there of). John could have said, "Yeah, I'm a better skier than snowboarder, but it's still fun." Instead he said, "I don't fall." Well excuuuuuuse me! Sure is refreshing to know that our new Democratic Nominee for the White House is immune to the forces of gravity that hold the rest of us to the planet.
Maybe Kerry should try to save some funds by floating to campaign appearances rather than taking an airplane.
Outrageous statements such as these have been the norm for all the Democratic Presidential Candidates, not just John Kerry. For most of the past year, the Democratic Primaries have made America's premier news media read like the "Weekly World News" (Bush knew about 9/11 in advance, the Lock Ness Monster Stole Dennis Kucinich's hair piece, etc").
When questioned by a spectator at a rally if Kerry could name some of the world leaders who have voiced their support for him, Kerry shouted "it's none of your business!" before he led the crowd in shouting down the gentleman.
Granted, the individual in the audience was probably a local Republican Party activist who went to the rally just to be a pain, but does that make his question less valid?
Is this what we can expect from a President Kerry?
When I hear Kerry talk, I can easily picture him sitting on the front porch of his villa in Martha's Vineyard (with his cute little country club sweater tied around his neck) shouting, "Beat it you peasants, before I call the dogs!" If John Kerry was not prepared to give the names of these alleged heads of state then, to be blunt, he should have kept his mouth shut and kept the comments out of the public arena. Even more disturbing is that fact that Kerry's belligerent reaction to questions about his comments are evidently based on his desire to either cover up a lie (i.e. Kerry never spoke to any foreign leaders, as Congressional records indicate) or he fears that if he would release the names of the leaders it would cause him embarrassment.
It is far too easy to write Kerry off as a liar in this situation. After all, he is a Liberal who was talking to a bunch of us "proletarians". He probably just figured that we were not educated or sophisticated enough to question anything he would say. He would never try such shenanigans with the French! But what if he is not lying? I am willing to bet that any list of John Kerry's foreign endorsements would read like a "Who's Who" of the Axis of Evil.
Maybe international terrorists will start wearing "Kerry for President" T-shirts over their suicide bomb belts.
John Kerry has managed to pull together a fine group of professionals to run his Campaign.
They must have ripped their hair out when they heard Kerry say, "I voted for [the funding of our troops in Iraq] before I voted against it." What? No wonder they sent him on a vacation. But Kerry's problems are not something a few days in Idaho can cure.
This statement is just another example of a man who is psychologically incapable accepting the consequences of his actions. It is George Bush's fault that he voted against giving our troops the funds they needed to complete their work in Iraq. He really wanted to support the troops, but evidently not as much as he wanted to raise our taxes. Bush refused to raise taxes, so Kerry decided that the troops would suffer (and this guy claims to be a veteran?).
John Kerry is a narcissistic egomaniac. He has morphed himself so many times over the course of his career that even he no longer knows what he really believes. However, the one common theme that emerges from interviews conducted even thirty years ago is John Kerry's all consuming ambition and arrogance.
In Kerry's mind, he has never made a mistake. Everything negative that has ever occurred to him is someone else's fault.
He is right, everyone else is wrong. That is why he feels he must be President. In the Kerry mind, those who get in the way of his election must be crooks, liars, and scoundrels maliciously bent on denying America the benefits of his enlightened leadership. As the Presidential race moves on this flaw in Kerry will become ever more apparent. It is only a matter of time until Kerry erupts into a fowl mouthed tirade on an unsuspecting intern for "insolence" after spilling some coffee on his lapel before a speech.
Do Americans really want a person of this disposition in the White House?
George Bush is the type of man who would split his sandwich with you at lunch time just so you can find out how good it tastes. Bush is one of us, and we feel that every time we see him. John Kerry claims that he does not fall, George Bush admits that he ate pretzels like a hog while watching a football game and choked.
Who would you rather visit for a weekend? Despite whatever political pundits may say, Americans vote for the person they like the most when electing a President. By the time the November Election arrives, the public will not like Kerry.
True. Can you imagine Bush snapping at a secret service agent (assigned to protect him with his life) after such a minor incident? He probably would've laughed and made a joke out of it. Clinton probably would've been good-natured about it as well. But Kerry is a nasty-natured spoiled-rotten brat to the core, and the country is beginning to see it in all its ugliness.
He was an arrogant, social-climbing self-absorbed preppy then. To my view, he hasn't changed sincde then. Well, he's got more money, more wrinkles, and more arrogance, but pretty much the same nice guy he always was. LOL.
It actually pretty scary that it hasn't happened. It shows what a tight reign the liberals have on the press. The left is so busy labeling us as fascist they're not even noticing what they have become. It is bad news for everyone that one political view has this much control over our "free" press.
Seems to me this *narcissistic egomaniac* condition is a Dem disease.
This is what the election will probably be decided on -- Does America want a normal guy as President, or an arrogant a-hole as President? My brother was a Clinton voter, and I recently asked him why he supported Clinton. "Because he's trailer trash," was his reply. In other words, Bill Clinton's personal failings made a nation of moral midgets feel tall. The US electorate was dysfunctional enough to elect as president a man they could all have a codependent relationship with.
Has the electorate slapped itself back to reality? One would have to conclude from the 2000 election that they did not, and only the Electoral College saved us from another four years of creepy, mentally imbalanced leadership. After 9/11, we'd all like to think that the nation has grown more sober, more serious, more adult. If that's the case, Bush wins. But, if the majority of voters are still suffering from the moral heaves of the '60s generation, we could end up with coarse, foul-mouthed, arrogant "F-in'" Kerry.
Dems are just whistling past the graveyard. hehe
MM- you seemed to need some cheering up tonight. Thought this might do it.
You think Kerry is bad - you should see Ter-ray-zuh up close. Even worse, if you can believe it.
I agree. Narcissistic personality is considered a mental illness with a possible autonomic recessive inheritance pattern. That certainly would explain a lot. (Unless you're a Kennedy, there it seems to be a dominant trait.)
