5. Romney will lie this into an endorsement

since he can't tell the truth about anything.

9. Don't you know?

It was all part of the plan ... just as Kerry fought in Vietnam and went against the grain in the 70s to join the protests against it just so he could have a Presidential run decades later,

Obama was sowing the seeds of his undermining of Amercia!!!

(okay, do I really have to add the smiley???)

15. Because he is very classy and knows how to respect

his surrogate and fellow dem in Kerry without hating on him just to prove his brilliance as POTUS.

That may not be the reply, but have observed (not you. some praising the POTUS as take no stuff at Kerry and Gore's expense.

Thankfully, out POTUS is classy and above that.

10. Hate to defend Chimpy here but he did call Kerry to congratulate him

I seem to remember reading it at the time and Bob Shrum mentions it in his memoirs. If I accurately recall, Bush said words to the effect that he was looking forward to a clean campaign leading up to the November election

Lying through his teeth as always
