It looks like John Kerry has been caught in another lie. The Drudge Report is stating that ABC's Good Morning America will spill the beans today on whether or not John Kerry ever told the American people that it was his medals he threw away at a protest in 1971. If you go to Kerry's website you will see the following statement. Just in case the Kerry people remove it from the website ... here it is faithfully copied and pasted:
Throwing Vietnam Medals UPDATED 4.23.04 RIGHTWING FICTION: John Kerry threw away his medals during a Vietnam war protest.
FACT: John Kerry is proud of the work he did to end the Vietnam war. The Nixon Administration made John Kerry one of its targets and Kerry's rightwing opponents have been smearing him ever since. John Kerry threw his ribbons and the medals of two veterans who could not attend the event, and said "I am not doing this for any violent reasons, but for peace and justice, and to try to make this country wake up once and for all." [Tour of Duty, Douglas Brinkley]
Well, it seems that ABC has a tape of a John Kerry interview made in 1971, shortly after the protest, in which Kerry boasts of throwing away his medals, not someone else's. Kerry's exact words? "I gave back, I can't remember, 6, 7, 8, 9 medals." So .. Kerry's website says that the charge that he said he threw away his medals is a "right wing fiction." He told Peter Jennings that the idea he threw away his medals was a "myth." Then ... there he is, 33 years ago, saying that he gave back his Bronze Star, his Silver Star, and three Purple Hearts. Then he says ".. and above that, [I] gave back the others."
What we have here is a succession of lies. First he says he threw away his medals. Then he says he didn't throw away his medals when union officials criticized the action. Then he said he threw away his ribbons and not his medals. Then he says he would have thrown away his medals, but he didn't have time to go back to New York and get them from his home. So, what is the truth? The truth is that sKerry will say whatever he needs to say at any given point in time in order to gain the greatest political acceptance and support from whomever he happens to be speaking to.
And just what did John Kerry have to say this morning when he was interviewed by Charles Gibson? He said that this is all being pushed by the Republicans who can't even prove that George Bush showed up for his National Guard service. Yeah ... that's the way to handle this. You divert the attention from the story about your medals ... and try to focus again on George Bush's service in the National Guard. The Poodle says that George Bush "has yet to tell the truth" about his service in the National Guard. You should have heard the interview. Kerry was in full panic mode. He was caught .. nailed ... and he knew it. Not a good day for Kerry.
Here's a question. What is more amazing here: That Kerry would lie, or that ABC News would actually expose the lie? Actually, ABC has been on a role of late. First they busted the U.N. Oil-For-Food scam and now they're taking on the Kerry campaign. Unbelievable.
WHY DO I REFER TO JOHN KERRY AS THE POODLE?
He's French. His hairdresser also grooms poodles. He's a rich woman's pet. That pretty much cover's it.
THE POODLE'S FAMILY SUV
And one more note about The Poodle. One more note because I want to make it as clear as I can that you trust John Kerry's words at your peril.
As you know, sKerry loves to go around criticizing people for driving "gas-guzzling" SUVs. Like most "environmentalists," he blames these vehicles for global warming, destroying the environment and gobbling more of their fair share of gasolene. But ... like most anti-capitalist "environmentalists," it turns out sKerry is a complete hypocrite. He owns an SUV himself!
But wait...it actually gets better. When confronted by a reporter in Houston (on Earth Day, no less) and asked whether or not he owned an SUV, Kerry replied "I don't own an SUV." Kerry was then asked whether or not his wife owned a Chevrolet SUV. His response? "The family has it. I don't have it." You've got to be kidding me....he's actually blaming his wife for driving the gas guzzler! I'm sure she really appreciated that. And what about that big Suburban Kerry tools around in on the campaign trail? How about that?
Like most eco-radical enviro-phonies, Kerry doesn't practice what he preaches. He lives in big mansions that use large amounts of energy, drives big cars and big boats and has an SUV. Then he actually gets up there and tries to act like a holier-than-thou environmental advocate -- while passing the buck to his wife!
Maybe the Secret Service should shuttle sKerry around in a Toyota Prius instead to cut down on harmful emissions. After all, Kerry generates enough hot air on his own.
How about Poodle Poupon?
Kerry is such an amazingly bad candidate for the Democrats to run.
No, but the poodle would bite (come-on frenchie); the poodle would chew it (snap it)
Imagine how the Democratic political machine must feel. They must be absolutely freaking.
Oh, I really, really hope they do. They have repeated that she is the smartest woman on the planet so many times that they actually believe it. She is so vulnerable is no many ways. The GOP can only dream that the Dems would pull the plug on Kerry and replace him with Hillary. Talk about crash and burn!
Kerry should think long and hard about taking this step, as there is still alot of his military record that has yet to be released, and there are still questions regarding his anti-war activities while he was reassigned as an aide to that Admiral in New York. How juvenile for Kerry to attack Bush instead of the press. Afterall, they're the ones who have outed him as the liar he is.
Someone needs to put a jar of Grey Poupon on top of the poodles legs.
