Watching the debates and I’m seeing some real idiocy coming from Senator Kerry.
- Did he actually cite 2 news organizations as authorities in tax law?
- The “right to choice” isn’t a Constitutional right, as much as I think it should be. This guy’s a lawyer?
- (BTW, Bob Schieffer is tossing softballs to Kerry left and right and is also not granting President Bush his turn at follow-up when he grants it to Kerry. I’ve counted 3 instances so far.)
- Why does Kerry toss out the comment that the Administration hasn’t provided for the VA when it’s a matter of record that he’s tripled their budget. Why say things like that when it’s so easily shot down?
- I knew he’d never make it through the night without spitting on our allies in the Coalition by making references to Bush not pursuing a real alliance.
- Kerry making the “I’ll never give anyone a veto over our defense” but clearly saying that we need to be able to prove ourselves before moving in our defense. That’s a veto, John
- Now he’s making the ludicrous “AK-47″ comment with regard to the assault weapons ban. A full-auto AK-47 has been illegal to own for long before the ban was enacted. Just trying to scare people.
- So Bob the moderator tosses Kerry the softball on minimum wages. Please, how would you expect him to answer?
- Ah, now the question on the draft! Bob’s using Kerry Campaign talking points. And this guy’s supposed to be neutral? CBS scores again.
- Interesting last question. Not what I was expecting.
Have a good look, folks, and ask yourselves if this the kind of sentiment you’d be proud to put your name on:
Democrat State Representative Craig Fitzhugh of Tennessee feels this is the kind of rhetoric that Americans relate to. Absolutely disgusting and unjustifiable.
Dean Esmay has an interview with retired USN Captain George Elliot up on his blog. It’s a good read so go have a look. The part I find myself saying “Damn right!” to is this little gem near the end of the interview:
|::::::::||I have very grave concerns about the American people being able to trust what the mainstream media says unless something changes. Maybe our swift boat guys, maybe this will be a greater legacy, will be what we’ve exposed about the mainstream media than anything we’ve said about Senator Kerry. I’ll give you an example. The closest example to our cause is the fact that CBS admits that they’ve been five years chasing down President Bush’s national guard records. And they haven’t spent five minutes trying to find John Kerry’s records!
The press seems to have no interest in this.
Indeed. We know for a fact that the Senator has not signed the release form for his records and that the USN has admitted it’s holding about 100 pages of documents pending that form being signed. The press has gone after President Bush’s records with every weapon in their arsenal, including the Freedom Of Information Act. So where the FOIA filing for Kerry’s records? Seems Captain Elliot is right: they have no interest in this. I guess the real question now is: why?
…to keep our eyes on the ball I direct you to this story about the fabeled peaceful Iraqi life under Saddam Hussein. Perhaps Michael Moore missed this one?
And you thought only the US Government spent money on studies to prove things that are already commonly known. Turns out that a report commissioned by Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin of France shows that the French are “arrogant, rude and surly to foreign visitors.” (Who knew?)
Turns out quite a number of us here in the States knew it quite well and that poo-poo’ed “little” boycott of all things French that our media assured us was of no real concern was quite a bit more stinging than we were lead to believe.
|::::::::|| The report says a more realistic way of judging is by the annual income from tourists, which places France in third place with $36 billion after the United States ($90 billion) and Spain ($40 billion).
It also cites a survey of world travelers by the European polling firm Ipsos, which asked people which countries they would most like to visit. The survey placed France fourth, behind Italy, Spain, Britain and equal to the United States.
The French government particularly was alarmed by the 21 percent, or $6 billion, drop in spending by visitors from the United States.
I guess that switch over to California wines was more widespread than reported. Hey, can anyone really be surprised by this if they were paying attention? Americans aren’t stupid, regardless of what Micheal Moore thinks, and we know enough to not spend our money with people who then stab us in the back.
