Silly me! I didn’t realize the 2004 election was about John Kerry’s behavior in Vietnam 30 years ago. I thought it would be to consider electing (I can’t say re-electing) Bush/Cheney for a second term if the voters thought that was the right thing to do. The major media, however, have led me to believe I was wrong. Nothing but pages and pages of Kerry’s records (and not surprisingly none of Bush’s). And of course the issue (if one could actually call it that without laughing out loud) is being covered endlessly by the major television stations.
Never mind minor matters like the national debt, the treasonous outing of a CIA operative, the secret energy meetings, the degradation of the environment, the chaos in both Afghanistan and Iraq, Bush’s probable AWOL, the failure of 911, the criminal torturing of prisoners, the lies that brought about this “war,” the war profiteering, the questionable behavior (I am trying to be polite) of the Vice President, the shaky economy, etc., etc.
No, the only thing that seems to matter is what Kerry did or did not do 30 years ago in Vietnam. And this continues in spite of his complete exoneration by his own crewmen, as well as many others, and in fact, by his records themselves.
Talk about sleaze! Gutter politics to the extreme! Nothing but outright lies, one after another. But what do you expect from a bankrupt administration that has absolutely no accomplishments to run on? They want us to believe that “results matter.” The only results they have that matter should probably lead them into the penitentiary or worse.
And yet, there seem to be people stupid enough to actually support what they have so obviously bungled. Let us fervently hope these morons do not constitute a majority come election time. Personally, I don’t see how they could. But, then, I said Ronald Reagan could never be elected President.
