John Kerry has never hidden his contempt for the armed forces very well, not even when he served as an officer in the Navy. Yesterday the mask slipped a little bit, as John Ziegler at KFI notes on his website, and Allahpundit mirrors at Hot Air. At a political rally for California's Democratic challenger to Arnold Schwarzenegger for governor, Phil Angelides, Kerry told the Pasadena City College crowd to study hard and get an education -- or wind up like the losers in the military:
You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you dont, you get stuck in Iraq. Wow. Just wow. It's worth recalling that Kerry at one time aspired to command these same men and women from the White House, and claims to still want to lead them. How would these people react to taking orders from a Commander-in-Chief who believes them to be uneducated, lazy losers?
We'll see if Kerry's peers in the Democratic Party support Kerry's description of our fighting men and women. If Democrats that have had John Kerry campaign on their behalf refuse to address Kerry's remarks or openly supports their characterization, it will expose the hypocrisy and the contempt that the Left has for the military. All of the talk of "supporting the troops" will be revealed as lip service.
Will Ned Lamont repudiate Kerry's words? Will Bob Casey, Jr dispute his mentor's characterization of our military as a junkyard for goldbricking idiots? Will Benjamin Cardin affirm that soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines don't have what it takes to succeed in life? Here in Minnesota, does Amy Klobuchar agree with Kerry's analysis?

Rove made him say it.
What an insulting, anti-American,ungrateful jackass.
Many, many people have felt the loss of someone in Iraq.
A fine young man who grew up down the read from us was killed when his blackhawk was shot down. I used to babysit him. He was my brother's best friend.
Far from stupid, he was a graduate of West Point. He was highly intelligent, inquisitive, curious, with a real passion for life, love of God, his family and his country.
John Kerry can go to hell.

Bill Bennett's callers have been clobbering Kerry.
Marines, Soldiers, Mothers of Son's planning to enter the service.
Note that Kerry has insulted the sons and daughters fighting in Iraq, and their Parents also vote.
"What an insulting, anti-American,ungrateful jackass."
Especially considering that this clown parlayed his 'service' into national media attention for himself and his own personal agenda. He even wore his fatigues while bashing the military, once he was home.
This is NOT a man!
Alas, we just pray for our heroes and condemn such hateful rhetoric.
Impugning the patriotism of our heroes just comes naturally do most dems.
I suppose the really smart ones marry some drunk rich bitch and live off their money.
The buffoonery of this empty suit is astonishing.
"a fine young man who grew up down the road from us was killed when his blackhawk was shot down."
(probably had a heart the size of the grand canyon....)
John Kerry: Dumb as a rock and proud as a peacock.
John Kerry...what a pathetic, unpatriotic, hubris-consumed,miserable, stupid jerk!!!
May both my senators drop dead.
Well, John, you just wrote a campaign ad for your next opponent. Thanks; that saved us Republicans some money.
We really know what the jerk was trying to say, but geesh...this from a man wanting to be President of the United States?
