Kerry Sticks Foot in Mouth Again


At a Los Angeles campaign event, John Kerry offered the following pearl of Democrat wisdom:

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

Or you get stuck as the junior senator from Massachusetts.

This is the person the Left wanted to be President. Little wonder the military, including retired military such as myself, have no trust in Democrat leadership. Kerry’s supporters, of course, don’t see anything wrong with his statement. When John McCain and other active and retired military call for John Kerry to apologize, Democrats say: “Apologize for what? Everyone knows only losers go into the military.”

A similar sentiment was reflected a short while ago in a letter to the ICO, but at least its condescending tone reflected only the attitude of a private citizen, not of an erstwhile leader of the country.

I apologize to the fine men and women who serve in our military, such as my oldest son Bruce, who served in Iraq and is career Army. I don’t apologize for John Kerry. Being a Senator from the same state that reelected Ted Kennedy for four decades, he can’t help himself. I apologize for all my fellow citizens who lack the courage and decency to tell arrogant John Kerry to apologize and then shut up.
