I feel this is one of the best interviews of Mr. Gardner I have heard. Hugh's questions were thourough and probing and Mr. Gardner remained consistent in his story.

Hugh gets it, that it's tough to argue about Purple Hearts and Silver Stars. The Cambodia issue is an issue that can be proved true or false.

Gee, thanks. If Jim lets me get away with a plug for the book as a news item, I'll put it up tomorrow. I pick it up from the printer tomorrow. It is something I really think will make people laugh and it's only 6 bucks plus postage for FReepers. Plus, there is a good discount for multiple orders. It is a book that looks like it is for children, and can be, but it is really a political slapdown on Kerry for adults from a kid's perspective.

Throw a thread up. With all of the troll activity in the last few days, I think you'll pass under the radar. It's not as if your a newbie trying to pimp a website.

OK Kerry!

Here is somebody who did serve with you,
on your boat in Dec 68

OK dims and media types!

BUSTED!

So Kerry, lets get your other crew members together
and they can tell America how you and
they were in Cambodia on Dec 24 and 25 1968,
under Nixon's orders even though Nixon
wasn't Commander-in-Chief until Jan 20 1969

You and your crew were there.
They can verify this? Correct?

Johnson, Lyndon
1963-69
Nixon, Richard
1969-74

Odd, I was in Vietnam on Dec 24 and 25 1968
and Johnson was my Commander-in-Chief

John Kerry

Exhibit 25, Congressional Record - Senate of March 27, 1986, page 3594.

"Mr. President, I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I remember what it was like to be shot at by Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians, and have the President of the United States telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not in Cambodia.

I have that memory which is seared -- seared -- in me . . . ."

By way of further example, Kerry wrote an article for the Boston Herald on October 14, 1979:

"I remember spending Christmas Eve of 1968 five miles across the Cambodian border being shot at by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas. The absurdity of almost killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real."

See Exhibit 26.

Don't forget the hat.

Cambodia is the entry point. Its not about questioning someone's valor or service. Its straight up about truthfulness and this guy was ON THE BOAT.

Not only that but I've heard rumor from highly placed sources that he uses the wrong fork for his salad.

Here's what will happen, I bet:
To: mcg1969
As he told the Boston Herald in 1979, "I remember spending Christmas Eve of 1968 five miles across the Cambodian border being shot at by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas. The absurdity of almost being killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real."
--Mark Steyn's Nuanced column

Here's what Kerry will do to get out of this. He'll say that he didn't actually state that Nixon was the president when he was in Cambodia, but that he had actually said, "...in which President Nixon [later] claimed there were no American troops..." and then claim that some SOB at the Boston Herald took his quote down and failed to include that word "later."

I mean, he blamed his speechwriters for things that he said, right? How long will it take for him to blame the Boston Herald writer or editor? I hope for two things:
1. For him to come up with something like this and
2. For the Boston Herald to have a tape recording of his statement in which no "later" appears.

I caught just a little bit of O'Reilly tonight (I know! I know! But I've had very little chance to see any of the tv coverage on this issue and was curious) and he had Rasmussen on. O'R did admit that he had done some checking on the Cambodia story since Gardner was on last night and he had found out that Gardner was right ... and that Kerry had misspoken.

I hit the ceiling! He didn't mis-speak. He LIED!!!!!

Just once, I want to hear some of the media who were screaming that Bush lied to admit that Kerry lied ... and Kerry has done it over and over and over.
