Just Think--He Was Almost the Prez!

This Boob Says: "There Was No Bloodbath in Vietnam"

RUSH: John Kerry was on Washington Journal, C-SPAN today with Susan Swain. Caller from Lubbock, Texas, says, "I remember the horrible killings after Vietnam with the boat people coming over here, and I really hate to go off and leave our allies over in Iraq, and I am concerned about that."

KERRY: Let me just say to the first part of your question with respect to boat people and killing, everybody predicted a massive bloodbath in Vietnam. There was not a massive bloodbath in Vietnam. There were reeducation camps, and they weren't pretty and, you know, nobody, you know, likes that kind of outcome. But on the other hand, I've met lot of people today who were in those education camps, who are thriving in the Vietnam of today.

RUSH: Ho, ho, ho. There was no bloodbath in Vietnam. Reeducation camps. "Yeah, they're not fun, but I've met a lot of people who have come out of those." A reeducation camp, does he know what he's saying? Bloodbath, reeducation camp, denying that the bloodbath that did happen happened, and now coming out and talking about these reeducation camps as though they were some sort of ultimate great thing. I tell you, this guy came close to being president. He came close to being president. His view, if he could have gotten 110,000 more votes in Ohio, he could have -- and that's pretty close.

John Kerry got a caller, by the way, from Plymouth, Minnesota, on the Republican line this morning on C-SPAN. This is what the caller said to Senator Kerry.

C-SPAN CALLER: I did not vote for you, Senator Kerry. And the reason is, is you're an old hat at undermining our troops. Do you remember meeting with the Vietcong in Paris during the Vietnam War? And I don't know how anybody gets three Purple Hearts, self-inflicted. And also you never answered why you didn't release all of your military records. What you Democrats are doing is providing aid and comfort to Al-Qaeda. You're undermining their effort while they're fighting. You should be ashamed of yourself.

RUSH: All right, this is a montage. We've got Kerry's answer. This is a montage of his reply to that caller.

KERRY: The Navy itself has said that every single one of the medals that I was awarded I deserved and they were appropriately awarded to me, and I'm proud of what I accomplished there personally as a warrior on behalf of my country. And it is a shameful tactic that Republicans see fit to attack the personal record of those who serve our country. Moreover, none of those wounds were self-inflicted, and I resent and will forever resent the implication by anybody that that was, uh, er, uh the fact. There were soldiers on my body, sailors on my boat. Every one of my crew has certified that what happened, happened, uh, and it was thoroughly vetted. So enough of this Republican smear tactic. With respect to, uh, uh, the visits, uh, to the Vietcong, uh, please, ma'am, I fought against the, uh, uh, communists in Vietnam -- and when I came back, after having seen the lies that our government told, uh, I stood up and told the truth about that war.

RUSH: (Laughing.) And lied through his teeth about it. You know what this guy's got? What's the word? He has so much resentment over the fact that this carefully laid image and plan got blown up in his 2004 presidential runs. He worked on that, obviously like Clinton is working on his, and it just got blown up with the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, and of course the national attention you're going to get when you want to be president.

I heard this on Rush's show. The Stalker of Rich women sure did show his ass! I'll say it again (for the 100th time), it must be tough to be a lefty liar in the age of recording devices.

In an apparent violation of the law, a controverisal aide to ex-Gov. Mitt Romney created phony law enforcement badges that he and other staffers used on the campaign trail to strong-arm reporters, avoid paying tolls and trick security guards into giving them immediate access to campaign venues, sources told the Herald.
The bogus badges were part of the bizarre security tactics allegedly employed by Jay Garrity, the director of operations for Romney who is under investigation for impersonating a law enforcement officer in two states. Garrity is on a leave of absence from the campaign while the probe is ongoing.

A campaign source said Garrity directed underlings on Romney’s presidential staff to use the badges at events nationwide to create an image of security and to ensure that the governor’s events went smoothly.

Les, your post has been removed. I have worked with addicts before and nobody here will call someone who has successfully gone through rehab an 'oxy' anything. That's unkind and unfair--and I think you know that.

If you wish to talk about someone's UNADDRESSED addiction, please refer to Clinton's sex addiction, Ted Kennedy's drinking, and/or Obama's cocaine use...

If my opinion of Kerry will go any lower we will have to look for it at the bottom of the public dump.

Exhibit A: the sad, pathetic, and pudding-guts anonymous poster who can contribute nothing to the issue at hand, but like a typically deranged and drooling leftist, gets his jollies by showing up at a Bar Mitzvah in a Hitler costume.

John Kerry can't be faulted for going to Vietnam, he did end up there. Its what he did or didn't do there thats the issue. He most certainly met with Viet cong representives, he wrote a seditous book on the military and look at his part in the infamous "Winter Soldier Hearings"'. He's a mountebank through and through. He believes evrything he says of himself and more and understands nothing. And to think he wanted to be President. J'Mac.

Hey Racist Shadows,
Exhibit B: Showing up in a public forum with the symbol of oppression and human bondage as their avatar. And as always, absolutely nothing to contribute to the discussion except maybe scaring us mere humans with your super-human PERL skills.

LES--Why do I continually have to teach you table manners? Russet Shadows is welcome here--and you will not use terms like 'racist' or 'oxy'--or any other term of derision. Learn how to talk without that--or learn how to make a case for yourself.

My house will NOT be a staging ground for your petty rock-throws. Do you understand me???

As long as Racist Shadows shows up here with an avatar of hate, human bondage and oppression, it is open season on that putz. Period.

Hey Racist Shadows,
Oh wow, that PERL script you just whipped up was just sooooo awesome. I cower at your computer geniusness (look that up in the thesaurus and get back to us, okay?). I'll bet you are the world's greatest COBOL/CICS programmer too.

Please show mercy on me Mastah Shadows, please.

bwaaahaahaaahaaaa!!!

And the only racist on this site is YOU!
