The Idiot Who Was Almost President

John Kerry on current Middle East strife: "If I was president, this wouldn't have happened"

Sure would have single-handedly infiltrated Hezbollah and returned Israel's kidnapped soldiers.

The chutzpah of presidential wannabe John Kerry never ceases to amaze. During a trip to Detroit to help Gov. Jennifer Granholm campaign for re-election, Kerry attacked what he considered to be President Bush's lack of leadership in the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict.

"If I was president, this wouldn't have happened," he intoned during a noon stop at Honest John's bar and grill. Wow! Now that's what you call chutzpah! If Honest John had been true to his name, he would have tossed Kerry out for verbalizing such an obvious prevarication.

But Kerry was allowed to continue: "The president has been so absent on diplomacy when it comes to issues affecting the Middle East."

You can almost hear the ponderous intonations of his patrician speaking style, but all that ponderousness can't conceal the addleheadedness of what was coming out of his mouth.

Here's a question for Mr. Kerry: If you were unable to convince a relatively reasonable bunch like the American people that you would have made a better president than a bumbling, inarticulate, bible-reading, warmongering, oil-coveting racist like George W. Bush, then how would you have convinced a fanatical, mad dog, Jew-hating terrorist organization like Hezbollah, which is totally dedicated to the destruction of Israel, not to attack Israel?

You have to wonder how many times it has to be pointed out to people like Kerry that despite the endless diplomacy of the I-feel-your-pain Clinton years, what we got for our trouble was an Arafat-launched terror war against Israel and 9/11 in America. If diplomacy was the answer to terror, the Middle East would now be more peaceful than a home for retired Buddhist monks.

But wait. Kerry had more to say: "Hezbollah guerillas should have been targeted with other terrorist organizations, such as al-Qaida and the Taliban . . . . We have to destroy Hezbollah."

Wait a minute! I thought you said the current problem stemmed from Bush's lack of diplomacy. Now you're saying that Hezbollah should be destroyed? Well, isn't that what Israel is trying to do? So what's the problem, then?

Now I'm totally confused. Trying to figure out what Kerry's position is on an issue has befuddled me once again. In fact, I'm still trying to figure out where he stood on Vietnam. Was he a patriotic war hero who gladly put his life on the line for his country or was he a rabble-rousing war protester who basically branded all American servicemen serving in Vietnam as the equivalent of war criminals?

Or was he both? But is that even possible? Or was it one and then the other. Or was it . . . ? Oh, forget about it.

He'd probably sent US marines to fight the Israelis.
(ONly with the UN permission of course).

I'd say that Kerry just failed the "international test."

So what about the Global Test Mr. Kerrie???

He is such a bore...I cannot believe he made it as far as he did in the election. The world would be SO much safer with this duffus in office.

I was for it before I was against it...

Blah, blah, blah...

It's the same old tune coming from the wafflemeister.

JK said - I was helping Jews when helping Jews wasn't cool and didn't mess up my hair. Now I have the crazies to pander too. Anyone seen Nasrallah?
