Why John Kerry Will Cost Democrats The Election
The words we say are now more important than what is being said. It’s not what you say, but all in how you say it. If that is the standard that Liberals from Paris to San Francisco wish to hold us all too, then John Kerry must be accountable for his own foolish comments this week.
Kerry was speaking to students at a community college in California at a rally for gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides on Monday when the egregious comments were made.
"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. And if you don't, you get stuck in Iraq," he said.
A day later the Liberal spinsters were in “Abort” mode all day as they tried to find a way to make Kerry’s comments seem less foolish and/or offensive. We are being told that it was Kerry’s poor attempt at a jab directed towards President Bush. This is either untrue or stupid.
If it is simply a mishap, then Kerry wins the Carrot-Top “Un-funniest Human on the Planet” award. President Bush graduated from Yale as an undergrad and from Harvard with an M.B.A. President Bush also finished with a higher GPA than Senator Kerry so I guess it could be said that if you work hard you can be President and if you don’t, you can be a United States Senator.
If Kerry and the Liberal minions are in fact lying, then it ranks up there with the most disgraceful and factually inaccurate statements ever uttered in this or any election. The implication would be that those serving in Iraq are the uneducated in America who have no other choice but to fight and die for their country. This is a common theme amongst Liberals when war comes to town.
The myth that racial and social injustices exist when it comes to who serves in the military has long been a talking point for the Liberal media and Left-leaning “doves” in Congress. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) has consistently voiced his misinformed position that in Iraq it is Blacks and Hispanics who bear the burden of protecting rich, white men back home. Michael Moore made the same claim, minus statistics to prove it, in the infamous Fahrenheit 9/11.
The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and New York Daily News have all done front-page pieces on the disproportionate numbers of poor, urban, and minority service men and women. They claim that to meet recruiting standards, all four branches of the military have lowered their own standards of acceptance. The Heritage Foundation has released studies proving once and for all that the “quality” (which they admit is an arbitrary term) of U.S. soldiers has risen, not declined since the war in Afghanistan began. In fact, the only demographic that has declined since 2001 is the percentage of enlisted men from the lower class. There are more high school, college, and graduate school graduates than ever before in the Army.
So, getting back to Flip-Flop Kerry, he is either lying or lame.
If he meant that Bush is dumb and that it was his stupidity what led him to invade a country that John Kerry himself voted to invade (and made numerous documented appearances on Fox News and CNN attesting to the undeniable need to invade Iraq), then he is not that intelligent. Not only is he less intelligent than President Bush scholastically, he is more so for opening his big yap and even remotely insinuating something negative about troops in wartime this close to a crucial election for his own party.
If I were a Democratic Congressmen trying to un-seat an incumbent Republican, I would be Google-chatting with Kerry’s Press Secretary to ask if Kerry could be so kind as to never speak again in public. In fact, this has already happened as a Congressional Democratic candidate in Iowa revoked an invitation for Kerry to speak today at a rally in Iowa City. And so it begins.
If Kerry was lying, he is unfit, even for being a Senator. To imply that troops are to be pitied and looked down on with disdain is unconscionable. Kerry himself served in Vietnam and then bravely spent the three years after he got back accusing his fellow servicemen of war crimes and atrocities and eventually tossed the war medals that had been his ticket home on the steps of the Capitol building in protest of an “unjust war” that had turned into a “quagmire”.
Doesn’t this guy ever get new material, or is being unpatriotic a recessive gene he can’t help?
The reason Kerry has cost the Democrats control of Congress is that the disenfranchised conservative voters who considered sitting out this election to teach Republicans a “lesson” will now be mobilized. The Foley “scandal” was a tough blow to an already unhappy base, but the thought of electing clowns like Kerry to run things in D.C. is enough to get Middle America out next Tuesday.
A family friend, Kevin Reid, a medic trainer at Great Lakes Naval Base, has served 13 years in the US Navy. While serving full time, at times overseas, he has also earned a B.A. from a university. He received his degree last June after working on it part-time for eight years. He has already started a Master's degree and hopes to get a doctorate. He is a true hero.
