Skip to comments.Kerry: Flu Shot for Clinton OK, But Not Cheney
Posted on 10/20/2004 6:33:48 PM PDT by kattracks
John Kerry's presidential campaign is complaining that Vice President Dick Cheney, a heart patient, received a flu shot this week, even though health officials have urged that only those most vulnerable receive the vaccine.
But apparently team Kerry didn't notice on Monday when Hillary Clinton announced that her heart patient hubby Bill also received a flu shot, during an address about the vaccine shortage at a New York City health center. "Once again, the Bush administration proves that it is the 'do as we say, not as we do' White House," the Kerry campaign said in a statement issued late Wednesday, according to Agence France Press.
Cheney - a pacemaker-wearing cardiac patient who has had four heart attacks - would fit into the government's definition of those most vulnerable to a looming influenza epidemic, noted AFP.
So would recent quadruple bypass recipient ex-President Clinton.
Surely the Kerry campaign will be issuing a statement any minute now condemning the Clintons for "doing as we say, not as we do."
This is so childish!
Once again, a big thank you to carville / begala / mccauliffe for running Kerry04 into the ground.
Isn't there a STFU shot we can give Kerry? He's starting to get on my last nerve. He must have a walnut-sized brain.
As each day goes by Kerry & clan are sounding more & more desperate. Pathetic.
Ya but its that damn Haliburton......its not fair, Haliburton ..blah blah blah
Cheney AND Bush should be getting flu shots. As well as all people who come in contact with the President. Do they not realize that it is important for these people to be on the top of their game???
Bill Klinton GOT A FLU SHOT THIS YEAR!
Did sKerry jump on him?????
The source is the French Press Agency?
This is too funny.
I hate these democraps more and more every day. They have just ruined this country with their lies and pettiness.
How can any right thinking person ever want to see another dim wit in this lifetime?
So typical of this idiot and his minions. They apparently don't think before they run their mouths - just like his wife.
I'd like to see a better link though. Not that I don't trust newsmax ;)
HA HA HA, thats great
Haven't ya heard?
If the gov't would let sKerry do all the embryonic stem cell research he wants, then his metamorphosis to God would be complete...he already belives in abortion,,so, he is quite comfortable with saying the innocent should die,,,,
If we'd let him allow research on those millions of fetuses, then there would be no need for wheelchairs or flu shots!
Who are we, the peons, to get in the way of his Master Society? Someone had it right on here when they post the KKKerry Kamp,,,Comrade Kerry and his merry KKKampers.
You know, I support the New Media as much as the next Freeper, but for cryin' out loud, what a dopy story about a really dopy situation. Like WorldnetDaily, Newsmax is turning into the right-wing National Inquirer!
Exactly. I still swear there is someone in the Kerry campaign that wants him to look like a bigger fool than he is.
Bwahahahaha!! I wish! How could we possibly survive listening to these two blinking morons for the next four years?
Geeez! I wish there was.
Yeah, but let's continue to withold their rabies shots...
Oh, I just re-read that last sentence. Never mind.
Hillary also got a rabies vaccine while she was at it.
