John Kerry's Greatest Hits On Our Troops

Just a little refresher.

A bit telling: The audience -- all Democrats, of course -- chuckles approvingly when Kerry brands our troops uneducated morons.

Delicious: Kerry is now lying, of course. Which is just perfect. He cannot admit what he said, he cannot apologize for it. It's too big.

Sort of like Mel Gibson, in a way. Who did in fact apologize, but in a "that wasn't me" sort of way.

That keeps this a live issue. He must deny, deny, deny and claim he's actually defending the honor of the troops from chickenhawks by calling the troops morons.

Well, that's actually not what he's saying. He lies, flagrantly, and claims he was talking about President Bush.

Let's follow his quote-- and see how it fits with this claim.

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

Talking about President Bush? So this was actually a warning that if kids didn't get smart and educated, they would end up in the dead-end burger-flipping job of the President of the United States of America, and then, owing to the fact that they're stupid and uneducated (but apparently smart and educated enough to be elected President, something only 40 or so men in our country's history have managed) then get "stuck in Iraq" by unilaterally attacking a sovereign nation without the help of our "historic allies."

So that's what he's claiming he meant -- Kids, stay in school, or else you'll just wind up being elected President, and you'll then get us involved in a diificult war with insurgents.

Yeah.

The old "study hard or you'll end up President" motivational speech. If I heard it once in high school, I heard it a thousand times.


Speaking of Motivation... A motivational poster from RobG.

Don't Question His Patriotism: Not only did John Kerry just, um, Swift-Boat every man in uniform in the American armed forces, he basically urged young people to avoid military service at all costs.

Sort of like he tried to do, until his number was up, and he got himself put into a part of the Navy he thought would not be involved in combat in Vietnam.

And then he phonied up some fingernail-scratch "wounds" to get unearned Purple Hearts and get his rich boy ass back stateside ASAP.

Ladies and Gentleman -- your once and future (?) Democratic candidate for Presdident of the United States -- bravely, smartly, toughly doing his best to undermine miitary recruitment in a time of war.

Bravo, Democrats. Bravo.


Bonus: Self-style "truth tellers" (read: leftist pricks) like Billl Maher and Richard Belzer will feel compelled to say, "The only thing John Kerry did wrong was lie about what he said. It is true that the armed forces are a dead-end career for anyone else but the less-than-brilliant and uneducated, though I do understand thare are some racist Christian Southerners who join up so they can kill brown people without being jailed for murder."
