Kerry waving to Bush/Cheney people
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 03:26 PM by JI7
did anyone see as kerry was ending his event people were standing around and shaking his hand as he went by. there were a few buffoons out there with bush/cheney signs and kerry was waving at them. some of them even reached out to shake kerry's hands and kerry shook it. i wonder if they were expecting kerry to come off as an angry hateful asshole like the candidate they support.

1. This is just more evidence that Kerry is a right wing whore
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 03:36 PM by TexanForKerry
Just like that neocon Barak Obama.

:eyes:

Edit: added rolling eyes to denote sarcasm. I apologize for any confusion.

10. Sarcasm, my friend.
I'm probably one of the most rabid pro-kerry people on this board.

19. hehe,no really it WAS sarcasm
check the person's post history.

the comment was mocking some of the other posts on here which accuse democrats of being right wingers and other things for any little thing.

16. it was sarcasm
but i can understand why some people would not see it as sarcasm based on some of the other posts we have seen around on du.

but i think i have seen other posts from this person and they are a huge kerry supporter.

23. Thanks for defending me
It's kind funny, since in posts of the other topics I post in I inevitably get yelled at by people who really do think Kerry is a right wing whore. At least this was a nice change of pace.

this is sarcasm related to the lynch mob forming around Obama
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 03:38 PM by orangepeel68
for saying he thinks bush is "sincere but misguided in his desire to keep America strong" on meet the press this morning.

on edit: well, i think that's a likely impetus for the joke. I can't speak for TexansforKerry, of course.

20. I'm sorry, I was seriously joking
I'm not just anti-bush, I'm seriously in love with Kerry, and I have been supporting him since back when he was behind Sharpton in the polls. I always get annoyed with people who think Kerry is too conservative, and I was poking a little fun at them here.

26. Oh,I am so sorry.......
My mistake.....I guess I am still angry at seeing those bu$h lovers trying to disrupt Kerry's meeting in front of that house today....the stupid little idiots with their Bu$h/Cheney signs and yelling and screaming....They are so rude....then getting up in his face as he was leaving......bet they didn't expect for him to be so nice to them,considering their "leader" who doesn't ALLOW dissent. Again,I am sorry. I really did think you were pro-Bu$h. :hi:

There are plenty of people on the board who would have said what I said with a straight face. I should have made it more obvious that i was joking.

30. I don't have to time to read everyone's posts........
I guess I get upset too easily when I think someone is a rightwinger talking against Kerry on a dem board. Those FReakers really piss me off. They can all go "cheney" themselves,as far as I'm concerned.

44. "Do I dare to eat a peach" is a line from a poem by T.S. Eliot
and it is a highly topical slam against Republicans who have their fingers stuck in their ears singing la-la-la-la when anybody tries to tell them some facts about their Beloved Leader.

The person in the poem - J. Alfred Prufrock - has a lot of fears, and those fears prevent him from enjoying life. His fear about eating a peach is that it will be messy, won't look elegant enough, he'll be laughed at....

This poster is skilled at the use of irony.

37. I think it's nerves.
I think we're all sensing BIG TIME momentum in our direction, and we're nervous about what to do with it. We all need to chill... laugh... and look to gestures like Kerry's as inspiration. We can be outraged... we can rant... we can get in their faces and let them know we're pissed... we just have to do it with smiles on our faces.

21. I forgot about that...we all should make a Big Point
of that. Kerry also took the "four more years" the freepers were yelling and turned that baby around..."Four more years of What?"

And then he went on to mention some things that ya wouldn't want four more years of!!!

45. Some DUers reported that W flipped them the bird in Pennsylvania
I took them at their word. Of course, they could have made it up.

Nobody would be very surprised if he did, though.

"Now watch this drive."

13. Kerry held an event in from of someone's home
it was in a neighborhood full of homes so anyone around there can just show up. he has been doing it for about a couple of weeks now i think. it's a new idea, similar to town hall meetings but difference is the candidate comes to your home instead . they call it the "front porch" campaign.

he did have his secret service guys around him though. but this isn't much different from other kerry events especially the rallies where it's open to the public.

42. Being close to all of the people
is a fabulous contrast to Bush, who is afraid of most of us. Clinton was great at being comfortable with the people also. Can only work to Kerry's advantage in my book. Add cutie Edwards to the mix, and they definitely look and act like they are one of us.

I think he'll win over a lot of people for simply being real, unlike * who has to have everyone get in line when he appears. It's becoming obvious what a cowardly chimp he really is! :toast:

34. How cool and classy of him
Reminds me of March when we were all going down to Crawford from Dallas to protest the one-year anniversary of the war in Iraq. There was ONE GUY out there in the Dallas parking lot where we were meeting who was acting as a counter-protester. He had a little sign that made no sense (I couldn't even figure out what he was doing at first).

The guy who organized the Dallas caravan got on the microphone and asked for a round of applause for our one counterprotester because freedom of speech and freedom in general is what this country is all about and it took a lot of guts to come out and be by himself protesting the 100 of us or so who were caravaning down to Crawford. So we all clapped and looked back at him and smiled and serveral people went over and shook his hand, introduced themselves, and asked him about his positions on the war. Of course he thought the war was a good thing but the discussion was mature and reasoned. Then our people shook his hand again, said nice to meet you and we all got in our cars and headed out. He smiled at us and waved as we left.

46. That makes me feel great! I'm so proud of fellow Dems doing that.
The freepers are always laughing at liberals for being wimpy peace-niks. What they don't get is that everybody likes to be treated with kindness.

Who doesn't want love?

Love and kindness goes a long way. Seems to me I remember somebody important saying that a long time ago. Somebody named Jesus. Oh well, I guess he's not very important anyway.....

43. Kerry may not be the very best, the Miricle, the Main Man, but he comes
awfully close and he towers head and shoulders over Bush in thinking, vision, empathy, consideration, benevolency, altruism, courage, bravery, manliness, Statesmanship, Class, Manners, wit, and a desire to do the Right Thing.

Bush is Toast compared to Kerry.
