Kerry’s Military Education Comment

So Kerry has apologized. What took him so long?
I thought John McCain’s call for an apology hit the mark. Two specific quotes in his statement including: “They all deserve our respect and deepest gratitude for their service.” And “Without them, we wouldn't live in a country where people securely possess all their God-given rights, including the right to express insensitive, ill-considered and uninformed remarks” point out yet again why McCain is well qualified to lead this country and be commander-in-chief.
Kerry’s on the other hand, points out yet again, why the democrats just don’t get it.
During the 2004 NH primary I served as a Republican Party monitor. I had the very interesting job of attending democratic candidate campaign stops and videotape the speeches. John Kerry was one of the ones I enjoyed most as I could clearly see his position sway depending on the audience, as well as his sarcasm and elitism. When he lost the presidential election, I really believed he was his own worse enemy.

So he has done it again. Why would anyone with an once of intelligence make a statement that if you are not well educated you end up in Iraq. But worse, he spins his comment that he was taliking about Bush. How stupid does he think the American people are? First, he was speaking to college students and using the clear term “you”. Anyone with a basic understanding of grammar would logically conclude he was speaking to the students. Second, does he forget that Bush attended Yale? And if my memory serves me right, his GPA was not far off from Kerry’s.

The net of all of this is that Kerry has likely taken himself out of the running as a leading presidential candidate. That’s actually too bad. Senator McCain would eat his lunch.
