No Apology Necessary
This morning's Fox and Friends show anchors thought the John Kerry "joke" or "slander" of the American military has ended his Presidential hopes.
They are wrong.
Kerry openly and candidly stated a position of the left wing of the Democrat party. They consider the miltary a career of last resort. They feel that anyone with brains would avoid the military and possibility of death during a war---any war. They feel that "war is never the answer". They also believe that Bush, Republicans and conservatives or libertarians are both simple and heartless. The simple are the fly-over voters that they cannot relate to. The heartless are people who espouse free market, small government solutions to plights of the needy.
This, Kerry's comment was nothing to apologize for in his mind as it is consistent with the liberal wing's anti-military philosophy. That will not necessarily be a political handicap within his party.
Mike Taylor adds:
... that Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Jack Murtha are not making any campaign appearances these last two weeks. They are nowhere to be found...!
The Dems are well aware that they have to hide how far left wing the Dem leadership is... it hurts them at the polls everywhere but San Francisco, Manhattan, Portland, Seattle and Vermont.
What a great party the Dems have, such pride in their positions!
If the Dems take control of the House, Pelosi is planning on holding her press conference in DC... NOT San Francisco. (If the Republicans hold on, Hastert's press conference will be from his Illinois office.)
