12. I would like to see them get nailed but is this his priority?
With DSM and Bolton going on, I just think he needs to concentrate on things he can change. Swiftboats had already sunk into the water during the end of the election, MSM recognized they were liars...

I think it is good to do this to make sure they don't get us again with such tactics.

* got McCain & Kerry using vets to attack the service of war heros, time to put an end to this disgusting practice.

18. I sure wish that asshat would stop running for president.
Maybe if he felt he had nothing to lose he would find the courage to act in the best interests of the country, and not his own ambitions.

Edited on Mon Jun-20-05 06:22 PM by leftofthedial
I don't NEEEED no purpose.

It just seems to me that every couple of days we get a rash of "Kerry is really gonna get them" posts--and then, just like during the election (most noticeably beginning with the Swift Vets), he doesn't do a damned thing.

The latest is his vow to really let bush have it over DSM.

and totally false, particularly on Bolton.

http://www.johnkerry.com/action/bolton / + numerous interventions on the Foreign affairs committee and on the senate floor + ads paid in RI against Bolton + ...

But I guess you guys leave in an alternate universe, so why bother with the truth.

22. Dept. of closing the barn door after the horse has run off .....
..... calling Dept. of saying that I should have worn a rain coat
before going out into the rain.

John Kerry knew that the same people who were making broadcast
appearances for the swift boat vets to distort the truth had SIGNED
LETTERS OF COMMENDATION AND REPORTS ON HIS COURAGE
during his tour of duty ...... he waits until 8 months after the election
to say something?

I guess now people will say I am a Kerry basher for posting this.

37. there are two possible explanations for Kerry's behavior
he's so stupid he makes the bushturd look like a particle physicist

OR

he's complicit with the neocons to convince us (falsely) that this is still a democratic republic

Has anyone seen this mentioned anywhere EXCEPT Aljezerra?
The only place, in teh media, I could find that Kerry was supposed to speak is Al Jazerra. Was it somewhere else? Because if it was not, I would not trust an article reported in one media place and nowhere else.

29. trust me, the dems are going to "get" not attacking their own
the day is coming. they are learning. they are getting, that when our dem leaders are going against a corrupt republican party (the enemy) that has the power of whitehouse, senate and house, that it behoves us to band together and support each others efforts

it is just a matter of time
we are gonna nail solidarity
anyday now
wait and see

34. I'm so disappointed in Kerry.
I would never vote for him again. He's lost the very admirable fire he had during Vietnam. It'a shame he listened to the advice of the pansies at the DLC.

54. 180 took care of the Swiftees. They're toothless now.
Don McTigue is working the Ohio angle.

He's been doing good work against Bolton, action alerts and speeches and such.

And there is that letter working it's way around the Senate re: the DSM.

You were saying...?
