The Bush haters are irrational. Remember how we were all called "Clinton Haters"? At least we had real reasons to want him removed from office.
I keep asking myself if President Bush can withstand this 24/7 hate fest? The liberal 527 groups are spending HUGE $$$ to defeat Bush. These are dangerous hate filled people!
First this is illegal I would think, second he's allowing more of our Troops and other nations troops to be killed just for the sake of getting elected. It's realy telling what kind of CIC he'd make.
Has any of our well read FReepers been able to turn up any news articles to afirm what RUSH mentioned?
"It's seared - SEARED - in my memory!"
Yup, those Asians are big on celebrating Christmas, huh John.
I wonder what wino he paid to acquire the hat?
When it's a 'Rat political candidate, such as Clinton, now Kerry, they always fall for it ... the candidates know they will and expect them to ... it's a given.
KERRY LIED . . . while good men died
A gathering of Vietnam veterans from across America
Where: Upper Senate Park, Washington, D.C. It is easy to get to, shady and pretty, with a great view of the Capitol dome in back of the speaker's platform. THIS IS A NEW LOCATION AS OF 7/17/04
When: Sunday, Sept 12, 2004 2:00-4:00 PM (EDT)
Why: To tell the truth about Vietnam veterans. To counter the lies told about Vietnam veterans by John Kerry
All Vietnam veterans and their families and supporters are asked to attend. Other veterans are invited as honored guests.
If you are in DC on the 11th, look for the National March Against Terror.
In God We Trust
A group of European social democrats, led by former British Foreign Minister Robin Cook, met last week with several top Democratic politicians and party officials. They included US senators Hilary Clinton and Joseph Biden

The only reason the Liberals care about Kerry's Vietnam experience is that they feel it gives him credibility on National Security matters, making him pretty much the only Democrat in the United States who can make that claim (besides Joe Lieberman who is disqualified, of course). Because they aren't particulary interested in his actual opinion on National Security, they don't really care about the particulars of his Vietnam experience.
The Media will be gladly rolled on this one. Kerry will issue some mealy-mouthed obvious lie about navigational error and the Fog of War, and the Medial will lick the hand that feeds them.
That's a perfect description of the zeitgeist.
I love that word, zeitgeist.
The only thing the Kerry campaign has been able to do is parse words. It's the 2004 equivalent to "depends on the meaning of 'is' is".
It's not that they fall for it, the Liberal media simply gives Democrats a freakin' pass.
All of a sudden, character matters to the Left.
From the Washington Post article:
"A close associate hints: There's a secret compartment in Kerry's briefcase. He carries the black attaché everywhere. Asked about it on several occasions, Kerry brushed it aside. Finally, trapped in an interview, he exhaled and clicked open his case.
"Who told you?" he demanded as he reached inside. "My friends don't know about this." The hat was a little mildewy. The green camouflage was fading, the seams fraying.
"My good luck hat," Kerry said, happy to see it. "Given to me by a CIA guy as we went in for a special mission in Cambodia."
Kerry put on the hat, pulling the brim over his forehead. His blue button-down shirt and tie clashed with the camouflage. He pointed his finger and raised his thumb, creating an imaginary gun. He looked silly, yet suddenly his campaign message was clear: Citizen-soldier. Linking patriotism to public service. It wasn't complex after all; it was Kerry.
He smiled and aimed his finger: "Pow."
Oh, what a tangled web we weave...
What Shezza said. The lefties will do a xlintoon if its proved that sKerry is and was lying about some (or all) of his exploits in 'Nam.
"Its just a exaggeration."
"A little white lie.
"Some lame bragadicio."
"Besides, everyone does it."
But not everyone is a United States Senator and a candidate for the presidency.
A lot of South Vietnamese were Catholic.
