Didn't I also hear DFU on the show??? How could you leave him out?
Doug was there and plugged is children's book about Kerry. A fine job as always.
Leave Doug out of this. He's just a troublemaker. :)
Hugh has one of the best show's these past couple of weeks dealing with Kerry's record in Vietnam.
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.
I have only recently become a regular Hugh Hewitt listener, he does a great job.
Sent to my email list.
Here is somebody who did serve with you,
on your boat in Dec 68
OK dims and media types!
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?
Odd, I was in Vietnam on Dec 24 and 25 1968
and Johnson was my Commander-in-Chief
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.
bump to read in the morning
"I went to Cambodia with the CIA and all I got was a 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.
Leave Doug out of this. He's just a troublemaker.
Not only that but I've heard rumor from highly placed sources that he uses the wrong fork for his salad.
To: mcg1969As 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 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.
Did you see this?
