More Kerry Krap
Kerry was treating running mate Sen. John Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, to a Wendy's lunch in Newburgh, N.Y., for their 27th wedding anniversary - an Edwards family tradition - when the candidate approached four Marines and asked them questions.Original link via Instapundit...with lots of added links. Check 'em out.
The Marines - two in uniform and two off-duty - were polite but curt while chatting with Kerry, answering most of his questions with a "yes, sir" or "no, sir."
But they turned downright nasty after the Massachusetts senator thanked them "for their service" and left.
"He imposed on us and I disagree with him coming over here shaking our hands," one Marine said, adding, "I'm 100 percent against [him]."
Blogs for Bush has the pic here. Caption with "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM !!!?"
Buried in the article is this little bit of utter hypocritical horseshit from the clueless senator of Louisburg Square:
Kerry also employed Paul Revere's famed midnight run and imagery of Bunker Hill to bash President Bush over U.S. intelligence failures.Kerry made no reference to the fact the reason these people were able to stand up for what they believed in was the fact that they were part of an well-armed citizenry - a group of ordinary people who owned and knew how to use "military style" weapons of the day. If Senator Kerry and his ilk had been in charge back then, the United States of America would not exist today.
"These are the places where people dared to stand up and put their lives on the line - to take a risk - for something they believed in very deeply," Kerry said of the Boston neighborhood where he was speaking.
The liberty and freedom that Americans (except for those in liberal la-la land) enjoy were made possible by ordinary citizens, in MASSACHUSETTS of all places, standing up to a tyrannical government that sought to deprive them of their arms and ammunition and tax them into oblivion. Sound familiar?
Or as Teddy Kennedy stated so eloquently in his speech at the DNC "...the shirt 'round the world" .
