Thread Name: BS: Kerry's War Record...
Subject: RE: BS: Kerry's War Record...
Well as I noted in another post, I was out to examine Kerrys purported war record, and I don't like what I see. He got a Silver Star and a Bronze, for actions that were considered every day common in the Marine Corps. But maybe it was truely inspiring to a brown-water squid.

In any case, as I pointed out earlier, both Kerry and Oliver North have the same medals, but I heard no reverence from the Democrats during North's troubles in '87. (Can't you hear North on his talk show telling Kerry, "Listen you Bastard, I got the same medals as you, but then you went on to kill my buddies with your pal, Hanoi Jane. And when I tried to stop the communists from taking over South America, you went after me".) North will be in his element simply reading the names of the Senators who supported the Boland Amendment. How could you trust your country to those idiots?

I suspect that Kerry is DOA in the South, and that Edwards won't be that much help. Gore was from Tennessee, and he lost the South (including his own state). Southerners don't like lawyers, as they often get in the way of a good hanging, so I don't believe Edwards makes up the difference. And if he gets in a debate with Cheney (who in my opinion, is only a step below Blair as the most articulate spokesman of the decade); they don't have word for what happens next...

And finally, I suspect that the final days of the campaign will focus on Kerrys record in the Senate, which is atrocious, if he attempts to hold the "Vital Center" of American politics. I have every belief that the fighter pilot leaves the Swift boat skipper on the beach, when this is over.
