John Kerry this week outlined why Republicans need to be returned to power in Washington.
You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and do your homework, and make an effort to be smart, uh, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.
This glimpse into the heart of the man who should be the defacto leader of the Democrat Party—should the Clintons ever fade away—reveals the contempt that the Left has for the military.
I owe an apology to no one.
Kerry still believes that he is right and has parsed his words to stand on that ground even when others wish he would shut-up for another week.
In a subsequent statement clarifying his attack on the military, Kerry stated:
when I came back from southeast Asia, I told the truth, and I am proud that I stood up and told the truth then
And what was the truth that John Kerry claims that he witnessed when he testified before the US Senate in 1971
In addition to the normal ravages of war, soldiers in Vietnam had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Kahn, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam.
John Kerry may be a legend in his own mind but he leaves the rest of us wondering why such a pompous buffoon thrives inside the Beltway.
