John Kerry Chooses Weapon Instead of Truth

There may be times when during a campaign people come to the conclusion they can think of one or two reasons to vote for a candidate. A good true test comes after a few years can you still name even one reason you would have voted for the losing candidate. I would think most former John Kerry supporters would have a hard time naming anything specific.

The media has allowed John Kerry and other liberals to coin the term "swiftboating" in a misleading manner. The newly coined term is now generally accepted by the liberal media as making a strong assault using false accusations against a candidate in order to discredit them. The incorrect coinage of the term centers around the word false. The problem is that neither Kerry nor the media ever did prove that the allegations of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth were false. In fact John Kerry danced around and around when it came to releasing the documents that should support his claims. It took him over a year to finally sign the form 180 to release his full military record. However, even then he could not give a full release, but only allowed friendly media such as AP, LA Times and Boston Globe to have full access to the records.

Now John Kerry instead of using the truth to fight any future battles, has compiled a power dossier on many of the Swift Boat Veterans in order to use against them in the future. The Patriot Ledger states:
Kerry, whose service as a U.S. Navy Swift boat skipper during the Vietnam War came under attack in his race against President Bush, said he has compiled a dossier on his war record critics that he wishes he had as the Democratic presidential nominee.

``We have put together a documented portfolio that frankly puts their lies in such a total light of absurdity and indecency, that should they ever rear their ugly heads again, we have every single ‘t’ crossed and ‘i’ dotted, and I welcome that in a sense,'' Kerry said following a morning address to the South Shore Chamber fo Commerce. ``It’s a shame we weren’t able to produce all that at the time.''
John Kerry dodged and weaved instead of just releasing his records. Now in the future he has a weapon. Bitter times for a bitter man.

    John Kerry: Smear the troops, play fast and loose with the truth about your own deeds, and then prepare attack material against your opponents to shield you from their criticism. Pathetic.

    Dossier, smossier.

    Anyone can put anything they want in a dossier.

    I whole-heartedly wish that Massachusetts would send him to the unemployment line, along with old red-nosed Ted Kennedy. I wouldn't vote for either man to be a township trustee, much less a US Senator.

    LA,

    When Romney was Governor I thought how fun it would be if Kennedy's amazing liver finally gave out. A GOP senator would be appointed in his place. Not wishing for his death, just noting how fun the replacement process would have been.

    Speaking of Kennedy's liver - I have noted before that when he finally does go he should donate it to science for research. With the torture he has put it through, it should have gone long ago. Some research on it may unlock some medical secrets that can help save lives.

    As for Mass., I guess they have no shame keeping these two losers in office. Same with my state of Illinois with Obama and Durbin. Of course there is also Governor Blogo.
