John Kerry, rumored Viet Nam Veteran, once again fails to place his brain in gear before placing his mouth in motion. In a speech Kerry reportedly gave today on behalf of Phil Angelides on KFI 640AM in L.A. Kerry said, “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.”
Like others, I have not seen or heard the entire speech to see if somehow he tried to nuance this slam against our Brave Troops, but the words speak for themselves.
Kerry has a history of mispeaking without any regard for how the words may impact those entrusted in the security and defense of America. From his 1971 "testimony" before the Fulbright anti-war commission, later in his speech, he said, "there will be some recrimination but far, far less than the 200,000 a year who are murdered by the United States of America….."
Who were the "murderers?" Only the troops, those of us who spent our youth there, were representing the United States of America. Viet Nam Veterans are the only ones he could mean were "murderers."
Supporting this view is more words he spoke during that "testimony." He also said, "The country doesn't know it yet, but it has created a monster, a monster in the form of millions of men who have been taught to deal and to trade in violence….."
Monsters? We are "monsters" to him? And now, the troops are lazy uneducated hicks?
The thought that this loser came within a hairbreadth's of the Presidency makes my skin crawl.
You may not like George W. Bush, but you will never find any examples of him speaking against our troops in such a cavalier fashion.
Clearly, these people he represents cannot be entrusted running the country while we are facing the terrorist threat before us today.
