36. They visciously smeared not just a war hero,
Edited on Tue May-30-06 04:06 PM by politicasista
but a public servant and his family. And people bought into them. The people I talk to like Kerry, but in their eyes, unless something "drastically" changes, people want someone who will fire back on the spot, someone who is honest, sincere (i.e. Bill's I feel your pain), and someone who thinks on their feet (yes, I saw the debate and thought Kerry did well too, but the perceptions are still out there).

I did what you guys do, that is post facts to one that said (she's a Biden supporter) that Kerry didn't bring up the environment during the campaign. I sent the link that proved otherwise to no avail.

I always say well, the media edited this and that out or ignored the story, but no one will respond. It's almost like they may think that I am solely blaming the media instead of the candidate. :shrug:
