Kerry's Phony Apology
After pompously blaring on Tuesday, "I will apologize to no one," John Kerry has flipped again by belatedly succumbing (kinda) to demands from his party who are bailing on him one by one, and most of the country to make an apology for his comments against our military personnel.
In 1972, as Kerry ran for the House, he was less apologetic in his comments about the merits of a volunteer army. He declared in the questionnaire that he opposed the draft but considered a volunteer army "a greater anathema."
"I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown," . "We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply 'doing its job.'
"Equally as important, a volunteer army with our present constitutional crisis takes accountability away from the president and put the people further from control over military activities,"
Obviously Kerry hasn't changed since then, and still believes what he said in 1972. How can any man be so wrong, especially a U.S. senator?
Clearly Kerry needs to be removed from public service as all he's ever done is more harm than good, since being stuck in Nam. He's still stuck there.
Democratic candidates joined Republicans Wednesday in pressing John Kerry to apologize for a comment critics said appeared disrespectful of U.S. troops as several Kerry campaign appearances were canceled.
"Whatever the intent, Senator Kerry was wrong to say what he said," said Democratic Rep. Harold Ford Jr., running for Senate in Tennessee.
In trying desperately to contain the damage, Kerry campaign appearances in Iowa, Minnesota and Pennsylvania were canceled, and rightfully so.
On his web site, Democrat Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts said in a blog entry:
"As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop."
Kerry's statement about having to be stupid to go into the military, was clearly not a joke. He believes it to his core because that's where he is from, when those drafted for Vietnam were not College students.
Most lefty's wouldn't be able to cut it in the military these days because you have to be smart, and much smarter than any damn liberal, especially John F'up Kerry!
"I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended."
So you see, he didn't actually apologize to anyone for his comments, as he said he would not. He simply said he "regretted" that his words were 'misinterpreted,' in the same slimey way Bill Clinton did when he lied to the court, and to the nation about his Monica Lewinsky scandalous affair. Nobody misinterpreted his words. Kerry said exactly what he believes.
The media is calling this an apology. Clearly Democrat arrogance knows no bounds.
"Sen. Kerry's remarks were poorly worded and just plain stupid," said Montana Senate President Jon Tester, a Democrat trying to unseat GOP Sen. Conrad Burns. "He owes our troops and their families an apology."
Now just imagine if a Republican made the same so-called "joke" that John Kerry made. The media would go absolutely ballistic and would never let him get off this easily. In fact they'd keep it going for weeks on end like they just did with the Foley thing. At least Foley immediately stepped down, unlike John Kerry who of course is too good for that!
Kerry lied to congress during Vietnam for the leftist appeasers, and they love him for it. Kerry committed war crimes in Nam by his own admission in testimony, and the left continues to love him for it. Perhaps the military shouldn't protect them. After all, whose side are they really on? In fact, let's see if the libs can make utopia happen on their own, shall we?
I propose we offer all the liberals their own state, give them Massachusetts where they can live under the rule of Kings Teddy Kennedy and John Kerry, and then strip it of all protection from the Military by allowing anyone in, including Islamic Muslims, but no one out. For all their whining about the president, military and war effort, we'll see how long they'll be able to last. Any takers? Leave a comment.
Democrat Triple Standards
Why was Republican Senate Minority Leader Trent Lott forced to step down after his past comment about Strom Thurmond during a retirement party, and Kerry gets off easy for his far-worse comments about our troops in the middle of a war? Who does he think he is? Oh, that's right, he served three months in the military, shot himself and got some purple hearts to get out. How could I forget?
The double, sometimes triple standards of the left are enough to drive the rest of us batty. They like to think nobody notices, then wonder why they keep losing.
The outcome from all this is likely to be the same as in 2000, when Voters rejected Clinton's false apology and voted for Bush instead of Gore.
Hillary Clinton called Kerry's soldier insinuation "inappropriate," which doesn't even make sense.
"If it was a botched joke, someone show me the punch line. I don't see how it was funny," Perino said. "I don't know how ... anybody could have taken them any other way."
I don't see it either, and only Kerry's apologizers have the audacity to spin it. Kerry thinks he's going to run in '08? I don't think so! He should be forced out now! But dems aren't that smart.
