The Captain nails Kerry’s problem

The Captain accurately assesses the whole problem with Kerry’s “misspeak”:

I’m still pretty torn on this controversy. Had Kerry simply come out yesterday and said, Whoops, my bad — I left out a couple of key words from the punchline and left the wrong impression — my apologies!, I think the entire story would have died immediately. However, in his typically tone-deaf manner, he decided to brand the entire incident a Republican smear, despite the fact that he had been quoted accurately.

Now he’s left with the argument that he misquoted himself while trying to show off his supposed intellectual superiority over George Bush, and that it’s all Bush’s fault despite being Kerry’s intellectual inferior. Really, no one could have scripted a more hilarious scenario, and the longer Kerry continues this line of defense/offense, the more ridiculous a figure he becomes. It demonstrates clearly that the “I was for the $87 billion before I was against it” gaffe was no fluke.

I’ll have one more point to make, after I get husband and kids off for the day.

    Character is fate. The Greeks knew this, so did Shakespeare. For Kerry to have uttered such a simple apology was an impossibility. He will continue to play the blustery braggert-soldier in this commedia until the curtain comes down on his noggin.

  2. jg says

    Of more interest, how will it play in the MSM? If you are a fool, but the media covers up the facts.. Pure spin.

    Yahoo headlines yesterday read ‘Kerry vs the White House,’ as if the moral equivalency were readily apparent.

  3. Ymarsakar says

    Everyone and their chicken is against the white house, these days.

    Of course it was a smear on Kerry. There was no freaking way Kerry could have got something wrong and made a mistake. The planes of existence would come crashing done before that would occur. So to Kerry, it is obvious, any mistake that was made, was made by Bush and the Republicans, not Kerry. He is the world, and the world is he. He is not the center of the world, in his view, he is the world. And the world cannot be mistaken, now can it?

    I think it is well past time for kerry’s handlers to spirit him away for the much needed lobotomy, which will put all of us out of our misery. We do not need to hear anything this idiot has to say, he doesn’t really know what he wants to say unless it is an obvious falsehood. He needs to be put away somewhere, where he will not be heard or seen again for the good of the planet.

    Stay in school or you’ll end up in Iraq is a modern day spin on the old 60’s draft dodger’s meme and surely wasn’t lost on the boomers and their modern day wannabes.

  6. JJ says

    Hard for him not to be quoted accurately: people aren’t quoting him, they’re just playing the clip! Makes it really difficult to deny….

    I don’t think, given his history of truly sick invention about atrocities in Vietnam while sitting in front of the senate in 1971 to get himself a national name he would get away with just saying “oops – sorry,” or something.

    And that crap yesterday about being a veteran and not criticizing the troops, well – that’s precisely what you did to get your career started, didn’t you John? And you’ve made a career of it, right up to as recently as last year in your statements.

    For no particular reason, either; it just seems to burst uncontrollably out of him. And he forgot, I guess, that back in our day you got student deferements – and then you got drafted. There were plenty of members of MENSA in Vietnam, and plenty of people who had completed their first run through college, and would continue on into grad school when they got home.

    What Kerry said was a stereotype that in fact was never stereotypical – and is even less so in today’s hi-tech volunteer military. But – it is, based on the way they act and what they say, what the Democrats seem to believe.

    Kerry is the epitome of the modern day liberal. And the only botched joke in the room was him.

  7. BigAL says

    Kerry should apologize for his botched attempt to criticize Bush.

    Bush should aplogize for his botched attempt at fighting the war on terror. Had Bush simply come out during the last 3 years and said, “Whoops, my bad — we have not removed the threat of the taliban in Afghanistan, Iraq is now a terrorist recruiting center, and I gave the wrong impression to the American people about why we went to Iraq in the first place — my apologies!”

    The problem is that Kerry’s mistake can be resolved with an apology (seriously, he just needs to admit he mis-spoke). However, Bush’s mistake cannot be resolved with an apology. He has led us into a war in Iraq that will go down as one of the worst decisions ever made by any ruler, of any country, in the history of the world.

    I wish all Bush needed to do was apologize. The consequences of his mistakes have proven to be catastrophic and there is not amount of apologizing that can ever change that.

  8. dagon says

    yeah, it was a stupid comment but you know…?

    so freaking what?

    kerry aint running for jack this time and he’s hardly a spokesperson for anyone other than his own ambitions.

    so he stepped in it politically and this will definitely be used to stymie any future presidential plans he may have but kerry was and remains a very weak candidate. so please, continue to join your brethren in right blogosphere as they obsess over this non-story. but i guess you people have to have something to hang on to.

    “He has led us into a war in Iraq that will go down as one of the worst decisions ever made by any ruler, of any country, in the history of the world.”

    Big Al, we have a place for you in secondary school to fill ALL the GAPS in your historical knowledge. Well, there are more gaps than KNOWLEDGE. It’s more like dunce. This statement is too inane to merit reply.

    Bush made an important decision, one which reflects America’s desire to make the world better. He was right.
    The world is better.

    You know that. The MSM knows that (that’s the reason for the hundreds of lies, at least 2 a week). The Democrats know that. They will misplay all the progress America has made through Bush’s bold and correct move, screw us up so that Big Al will be hollering bloody murder, and, always, always, blame Bush or the GOP for it.

    It’s COUNTRY first, right? NEVER for you, Big Al– or for the Democrats.

    As Victor Davis Hanson has said (do you know him from Bookworm’s posts?): ‘Iraq is America’s noblest war.’
    Read up on Book’s posts. Check out Mr. Hanson’s credentials. They may awe you.

    YOU should be made to apologise for your craven behavior and words in not supporting YOUR COUNTRY, YOUR TROOPS, YOUR PRESIDENT in Iraq from the beginning.

    jg:

    “YOU should be made to apologise for your craven behavior and words in not supporting YOUR COUNTRY, YOUR TROOPS, YOUR PRESIDENT in Iraq from the beginning.”

    –what a silly statement. any acknowlegement of reality refutes virtually everything that you have said. how has bush’s decision made the ‘world better’? even our own intelligence agencies have determined that terrorism recruitment has RISEN sharply and the middle-east is a destabilized powder keg. couple that with the fact that the u.s. is now very much alone and viewed negatively by the rest of the world and your comments make me think that you’re just about ready for bellevue.

    the truth of the matter is that an increasingly compelling argument can be made that supporting our tropps and our country means not supporting this president. but if you wish to continue to be so beholdent to some stupid rich kid with no history of prior public service, who would just as soon spit in your face than shake your hand…then knock yourself out.

  12. jg says

    dagon, no intelligence report says that. Only one badly leaked and misreported excerpt was twisted to the opposite of a larger report which, on the whole, says exactly the opposite.

    The war against terrorism will go on for many years. We are ahead, barely at the moment. The world is ungrateful, or its leaders. The little people are scorned by the media; still in every civilised country, they know that America stands on guard, as it has for half a century.
    As below, there are many more evil dictators to bring down. Saddam, your namesake, and Khaddafi (BBC NEWS | Europe | Libyan leader embraces West) are a good opening.

    As I’ve written before, Americans have a history of doing what’s right. They don’t check with every tin pot dictator (Chavez); or warlord ;or a cynical Europe whom our troops and dollars have protected for decades. They aren’t American. We are. dagon, you are? no.

    All ‘the compelling arguments’ (also known as lies and half truths, see your intelligence report above) have been shattered long ago. You stand against the American President, his country, and America’s troops. There is a name for that behavior were you an American.

    Your other comments are idiotic and typical. One reason: ‘It is said that Dagon, from his navel down, had the form of a fish (whence his name, Dagon), and from his navel up, the form of a man, as it is said, his two hands were cut off.”‘

    Here is a reading of God’s Word about your fate.

    “One day the Philistine leaders assemble in a temple for a religious sacrifice to their god Dagon for having delivered Samson into their hands. They summon Samson so that he may entertain them. Three thousand more men and women gather on the roof to watch. Once inside the temple, Samson asks the servant who is leading him to the temple’s central pillars if he may lean against them.

    “Then Samson prayed to the LORD, ‘O Sovereign LORD, remember me. O God, please strengthen me just once more, and let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes’ (Judges 16:28).” “Samson said, ‘Let me die with the Philistines!’ (Judges 16:30) Down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more as he died than while he lived.” (Judges 16:30).’

    “You stand against the American President, his country, and America’s troops.”

    it’s MY country pal. and MY nephews and cousins who make up our troops. not this presidents!!! how many of the sons and daughters of the members of this cabinet are making this ‘noble’ sacrifice for our freedoms? answer that question.

    as for the rest about the what our intelligence agencies said…well, you strike me as the kind of person who invents his own reality so there’s probably not much i can do to dissuade you but for others who wish to be informed:

    “A 30-page National Intelligence Estimate completed in April cites the “centrality” of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and the insurgency that has followed, as the leading inspiration for new Islamic extremist networks and cells that are united by little more than an anti-Western agenda. It concludes that, rather than contributing to eventual victory in the global counterterrorism struggle, the situation in Iraq has worsened the U.S. position, according to officials familiar with the classified document.”

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/09/23/AR2006092301130.html

    and yeah i’ve read the bulk of it so i also know that your assertion that a comprehensive interpretation of the estimate says the opposite is only so much b.s. of course you are welcome to produce the relevant passages of the ‘larger report which, on the whole, says exactly the opposite’. BUT OF COURSE YOU WONT!

    finally, i do not believe in your god so spare me the quotes. i will however leave you with of my own:

    “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.”

    Going back to dagon’s original post on this thread, that settles it for me. If a savvy media professional like dagon says this Kerry brouhaha is a nonstory that the righties cling to, then I’m sure it is very damaging to the Democrats and is a telltale of liberal attitudes toward the military. Some folks are like a compass, only turned around. Face in the direction they point and you can be sure your butt has northern exposure.

    Thank you for your quote from the writer of American horror. You are his, but not always.

    “finally, i do not believe in your god so spare me the quotes.”

    He believes in you, and made you. You see Him in all the world, soon face to face. He is the God whom Saddam slunk before, and dagon before that. You are His at the end, dagon.

  16. dagon says

    yeah yeah yeah jg.

    just provide me the documents that ‘shatter’ the assertion that bush’s actions have made our efforts against global terrorism more difficult. shouldn’t be that hard, since those claims were shattered and all that.

    peace

  17. Ymarsakar says

    I guess according to Dagon, we were the ones hanging onto Kerry when the Democrat nationally nominated him for the President because they believed he was presidential. Now that Kerry is flunked out, the Left dumps him as a “weak candidate”. Very nice double jeopardy going on here.

    People like me acknowledge reality, people like Al are the ones saying Bush should apologize so that AL can say that Bush can’t apologize enough. Does that even trigger any of the conflicts a reasonable person would have?

    Dagon has said that you need to stop supporting the President, in order to benefit troops and the country. Country over party, he says. But that is like the Democrats saying they are the loyal opposition. It is not true.

    They aren’t the loyal opposition. They don’t criticize Bush to benefit anyone other than themselves and their own agendas.

    the truth of the matter is that an increasingly compelling argument can be made that supporting our tropps and our country means not supporting this president.

    For me it is pretty straightforward. What do people mean when they say supporting this president? Does it mean following his orders and agreeing with everything he is doing and saying, in lock goose step? For dagon, it probably does mean that to him. So either dagon means that you must stop agreeing with everything this President says or he means you have to undermine this President by preventing people from following Presidential orders.

    So we have two options, pretty straightforward. 2 to the second power total possibilities.

    The first option is known as the loyal opposition setup. Help the nation by telling the President when he is wrong, so that he can correct his mistakes for the good of us all. But if the Democrats criticize the President, that he is not giving terroists enough rights, that he is doing too much in the War on Terror in both foreign and domestic spheres, do you really think this is the “loyal opposition” of which AMerican needs to get stronger? Who are the Democrats really loyal to, you have to ask yourself.

    The second option is more disturbing, because it advocates active counter-manding of Presidential orders. Belay that order, in the Navy. Do not obey, do not support, go for the revolution, that way lies the good of America. Now this isn’t a normal way to support the country.

    The normal way to support a country is to follow the Constitutional tradition of power. Since the President is elected to decide this issues, all you do is agree whether or not what he is doing is helping the President in the goals he has set out. You don’t go out and say the President shouldn’t have set the strategic goal of winning Iraq, to be America’s strategy. That is the President’s purvie, and responsibility, not yours. ALl you are allowed to do, by the country’s own Constitution and traditional discipline, is to tell the President if he is failing to or succeding in his goals of winning in Iraq.

    But people like dagon and Al are talking about things as if they were the President, as if they set national policy, as if the President should do what they tell him to do. But that is not how the country operates, people.

    Bush sets the strategic goal, and if you wish to criticize, criticize him for failing to accomplish the goals Bush has set out, don’t try to criticize Bush for failing to accomplish some wacko extremist and personal ambition based goal of yours. It is all about the difference between playing as a team member on one team, and trying to go lone wolf saboteur for the other side, to get personal benefits. It is the difference between loyalty and disloyalty, constructive criticism and destructive criticism.

  18. Ymarsakar says

    it’s MY country pal. and MY nephews and cousins who make up our troops. not this presidents!!! how many of the sons and daughters of the members of this cabinet are making this ‘noble’ sacrifice for our freedoms? answer that question.

    I wrote my response above without reading the recent byplay. However, it only supports my contention, this quote from dagon. He opposes the President, instead of supporting the President, not for his country and countrymen, but because for his own personal benefit. It is called factionalism, and the Roman Empire knew it in its ending days. Factionalism is when one person or group, starts thinking more about themselves, their glory, their benefits, and the benefit to those who they care about, than strangers and their compatriots in some other part of the country that they have never seen before.

    Every military officer has to decide whether his loyalty is to his superiors, or his loyalty is to what benefits him and his men. Getting sent into the meat chopper as a decoy, doesn’t benefit him or his men, but if he is loyal to the leadership and the mission, he will take the risk and obey orders.

    Dagon is not loyal to the Presidency or even the idea of the Presidency. He is loyal to his “volk”, what benefits him and his family. It is a clan issue, not a national one. What is good for dagon is what is good for his clan, I and others in America that is not part of dagon’s clan, does not apply.

    When the Prez isn’t in the military and isn’t part of his clan, dagon believes the Prez should be replaced by the clan or those who would benefit the clan.

    We’ve seen what happened before when people had allegiance conflicts, between their state and the greater union in America.

    In Dagon’s world, he isn’t part of the Prez’s team. He stands in opposition to the President, because Bush is an enemy and must be opposed. Standard rationale for the Left. Now different folks got different rationalizations, but they all think of Bush as not being on their side, and that is how they oppose him. When they oppose Bush, they oppose him as an enemy, not as an ally that is just misguided and can be helped along to the right solution.

    Dagon doesn’t believe in the US system and the US Constitution. President Bush is not his President, and therefore he does NOT have any moral authority, either de facto or de jure, to command dagon’s family to fight to the death.

    When an officer believes his superiors are messed up in the head and betraying the principles that the officer swore an oath to defend, then that officer is going to start thinking of becoming a traitor, for the greater good. There are only a handful of situations where this was actually to anyone’s good. But in most cases, traitors betray their team mates for personal gain, not for the greater good.

    Never mind John Kerry. He was and remains a weak candidate even though he was the Democratic nominee two years ago and would have won if not for the ruthless deceitful Swiftboating tactics and the illegal manipulation of the vote in Ohio proving that the rethugs will go to any lengths to defeat even a weak candidate who of course despite being weak and displaying such a marked tendency to put his foot in his mouth that he should lace his shoes with dental floss but he should have won against that stupid rich kid with no prior public service named Lamont I mean Bush who was of course governor of Texas but Texas is a primitive place and its governor has no real executive powers and I’ve never been to Texas and you couldn’t pay me to go.

  21. BigAL says

    Ymarsakar:

    If we are such disloyalists, Why don’t you tell Bush to arrest us?

    Bush could silence us forever and take away our rights to habeus corpus.

    Or are you saying I should trust government? Because that’s a real conservative value??????? You guys are straight out of the nuthouse if you think you represent conservatives.

    On the other hand, I promise you I will never support a law that takes away your right to habeus corpus, to hear the charges against you, to a speedy trial, to the presumption of innocence.

    That’s the difference between me and you, I will never advocate taking away your individual rights guaranteed by our constitution.

    Y said: “It is all about….playing as a team member on one team”

    NO Ymarsakar, it is NOT about playing as a team member on one team. It is about playing as a team member on the RIGHT team. I believe your team is wrong. I’m not on your team Y. I think the people on your team are crazy.

    The silliness of this discussion is that it’s all about black or white, no gray. It’s all about the pot calling the kettle black. What world do you live in? I see people who are basically good but screw up all the time.

    Bush is not the devil himself; he is a man who holds a high office and must answer for the many decsions he has made and is making. Kerry is not the president and doen’t have to answer in the same way because he doesn’t have the same power Bush does. In 2004, Bush won and Kerry lost. End of story.

    Both man are responsible for the words they speak, just as I am and you are.

  23. says

    Absolutely correct about American politicians being only human, Helen. What makes Kerry’s remarks political fodder is (a) that he aspired to be President and he claims that he wants to run again and (b) the support many in his base are giving him for his initial statement and his subsequent refusal to apologize.

    The fact is that, wittingly or unwittingly, Kerry said something politically stupid and pretty darn insulting. He’s responsible for that fact, and a decent person would apologize. Apologies go a long, long way. That he won’t, and that his more rabid followers applaud him for being intransigent, is significant in terms of measuring the content of their character.

  24. jg says

    ” I see people who are basically good but screw up all the time.”

    Some Democrats may see President Bush that way. They have stonewalled him in the White House with their 24/7 line of deceptions and liars.

    One can see the same withering fire returned at Mr. Kerry. He plays by the sames rules as the other Democrats.
    His hands are equally dirty, so turn-around fire, unfortunately, is justice.

    Mass’s. other senator has a more depraved background, which will certainly be part of the upcoming partisan brawl.

    It’s unfair, and hurts the Republic, but then that hasn’t stopped the MSM and their Democrats from attacking America for years.
    Politics, Helen, indeed, may kill us all.

  25. says

    It is about playing as a team member on the RIGHT team.

    There goes that factionalism thing again, Bookworm. Lee probably was thinking about the right team too. Benedict Arnold as well. Whether you are good like Lee or bad like Arnold, playing as a team member on the team matters a lot more than figuring out after the fact which team is the right one.

    Why don’t you tell Bush to arrest us?

    If he was as evil and tyrannical as you say he is, he would. So the very fact that you guys are still walking around and breathing, makes everything you say false. Pretty obvious. I don’t need to tell Bush anything, if I do tell him anything, it would be to get him to finish the war in Iraq with brutal and ruthless tactics and stratagems.

    On the other hand, I promise you I will never support a law that takes away your right to habeus corpus, to hear the charges against you, to a speedy trial, to the presumption of innocence.

    See, this is what I’m talking about. You prove my point for me.

    I believe your team is wrong.

    Identity politics.

  26. Danny Lemieux says

    It’s funny how the Left waxes indignant because our presence in Iraq “creates” more terrorists…well, duh! Osama bin Laden noted that, when having to choose between a strong horse and a weak horse, people will chose the strong horse. Terrorists volunteer and fight Americans because they think they can win. So, why do they believe so…it is because the MSM, Hollywood, the NYT, the Democrats, MoveOn.org, and the Dagons and BigAls of the world have told them that they will do everything they can to destroy the one American president who has stood up to the Islamofascists. That’s certainly motivation for the terrorists to recruit. The only way to reduce terrorist recruitment is to show resolve and destroy it completely and unequivocally, much like the British did against the Mahdi of Sudan in the late 19th Century. Once the jihadis were defeated and the Mahdi killed, the 19th Century’s Islamic jihad ended.

  27. BigAL says

    Danny, If you’re concerned about fascism you might want to look at your own leaders.

    The argument against welfare generally states that “people will not work for something if they know they can get it for free”. Every single time the government gives money to a corporation without accounting for the actual goods and services provided (along double checking the fair market value of the work) they are giving the corporation motivation to: 1)not actually do the work they promised to do; 2) to seek more government contracts; 3)provide campaign contributions to politicians they know will not hold them accountable.

    Basically, the lack of accountability motivates people to STEAL public resources

    Government needs accountability. Period.

    Anything less is dangerously flirting with fascism.

    I don’t care if you’re a Democrat or a Republican or Libertarian or Green…if you push for more government accountability you are most likely a patriot.

    Lastly, we must remember the most common cause of no accountability: big government!
    Big Government provides the smoke screen that allows people within and outside of government to not be held accountable.

    I beg you to vote for people who push for accountability AND the reduction of government!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. says

    Danny isn’t concerned about fascism, because American ancestors, whether his or someone else’s, obliterated fascism. It ain’t around anymore, except in the mutated Islamic Jihad form. But that’s only cause of the radiation.

    If Greg is the example of the higher echelon intellects on the Left, then BigAl is an example of one of the lower echelons. I’m not trying to be mean, but when you have this repeating his lines like some kind of broken record,

    “BI don’t care if you’re a Democrat or a Republican or Libertarian or Green…if you push for more government accountability you are most likely a patriot.”

    like the above, then something is very wrong. It is not just once or twice, but like 10 times already with different quotes, “exactly” as he originally wrote them.

    Does Al just copy and paste his own stuff or something? Even when rewriting your own positions, you would change some things around here and there.

    Al is like the Left. All their talk of freedom, liberty, freedom of speech, and gamabob sounds pretty good. But when you look deeper, the miasma of wackness is too much for the idealistic rhetoric to be true.

  29. BigAL says

  30. BigAL says

    And I re-iterate it because you clearly do not understand that our current government promotes fascism–or else you are a fascist yourself and want the current system to remain in place for your own personal benefit.

    You might appreciate Thomas Friedman’s latest:

    “Let Karl know that you’re not stupid. Let him know that you know that the most patriotic thing to do in this election is to vote against an administration that has — through sheer incompetence — brought us to a point in Iraq that was not inevitable but is now unwinnable.

    Let Karl know that you think this is a critical election, because you know as a citizen that if the Bush team can behave with the level of deadly incompetence it has exhibited in Iraq — and then get away with it by holding on to the House and the Senate — it means our country has become a banana republic.”
