Posted on 08/12/2004 7:46:46 AM PDT by areafiftyone
John Kerry has tried to act tough and avoid the fatal error of looking like wimpy Michael Dukakis, Jimmy Carter or Walter Mondale, but his call for a "more sensitive" war on terrorism is causing him all sorts of embarrassment.
"America has been in too many wars for any of our wishes, but not a one of them was won by being sensitive," Vice President Dick Cheney said in remarks prepared for delivery today in Dayton Ohio. "A sensitive war will not destroy the evil men who killed 3,000 Americans. ... The men who beheaded Daniel Pearl and Paul Johnson will not be impressed by our sensitivity."
Cheney said none of America's heroes would follow Kerry's advice.
"President Lincoln and General Grant didn't wage sensitive wars. Nor did President Roosevelt or Generals Eisenhower and MacArthur."
Kerry lacks "deeply held convictions about right and wrong," the vice president noted Wednesday during a forum in Joplin, Mo.
When a citizen asked Lynne Cheney "what in the world" Kerry was thinking about when he made the statement to a group of biased pro-Democrat media types, she replied:
"I just kind of shook my head when I heard that. With all due respect to the senator, it just sounded so foolish. I can't imagine that al-Qaida is going to be impressed by sensitivity."
Its beginning to pile on...Cheney nails him and Joe Biden made a comment that when it comes to getting to the point BUSH/CHENEY get it right....
Lynne Cheney has no idea what she's talking about.
Just ask Senator Patty Murray - Osama Bin Laden built daycare centers for the poor all over the Middle East. Al-Qaeda is all about sensitivity.
Kerry is just going to run a kinder, gentler kind of war. If that won't work, Edwards will sue the terrorist.
Yeah....because Haji is really sensitive to your feelings right before you hit the 80th floor of some high rise....
I'd forgotten about Patty Murray. Bet she's tapped for Secretary of State in the Kerry Administration...(not)
John Kerry: Girlie Man for Sensitive Wars!
I heard this on the radio. I was wondering when the Bush camp would pick up on this. Good for Cheney! That should take the wind out of Kerry for awhile.
I can't wait till Cheney debates Edwards. That man will smack Edwards silly!
they'll play the Hillary! "being attacked by a piece of paper" defense ... Cheney will be denounced as "rude" and "an obstructionist" ... you just wait
Day One of the new administration - Pardon Martha Steward.
Day Two - Appoint Martha Stewart special advisor to National Security Advisor Sandy Burgular!
Day Three - appoint a special Doily commission to color coordinate our sensitivity campaign vis a vis, (French term!)Euro peen desires.
Day Four - vacation in the Hamptons with Tar assa!
Fill in the Blankety Blanks!
See my new tagline. Its from the news conference today.
CHENEY ROCKS. I was hoping someone would pick up on this. They have to repeatedly drill Kerry on his "Sensitive" remarks. That's gotta be worth 3-4% of the vote. ho the hell wants a sensitive war on terror.
Osama, day care, Patty Murray
Man, am I gonna get nailed for that typo.
