Kerry Goes Down with His Swift Boat, Again

By Dennis Byrne

Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) now has accused Hillary Clinton's campaign of the worst possible--in his mind--evil: "Swiftboating" his choice for president, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL).

Kerry, demonstrating a child-like inability to let go, on Tuesday dragged out the swiftboating analogy in an e-mail responding to what he called "disgusting lies" that "they" are floating that Obama is a secret Muslim and refuses to observe the Pledge of Alliance.

Kerry doesn't say who "they" are, but it's clear, considering the deteriorating civility of the two campaigns that he was referring to the Clinton camp. Kerry equates the "disgusting lies" told about Obama with what happened to him when the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth challenged Kerry's claims, made during his presidential campaign, of bravery and heroism in the Vietnam War.

Just letting you know - I have seen the attacks about Obama going around the internet. It could be Republicans, it could be the Clintons, or it could just be someone who doesn't like Obama. In any case, it's totally unfair of you to put words in Kerry's mouth and assume he's talking about the Clintons. I received the email from Kerry about these "Swift Boat" style attacks and I didn't get that impression nor would I assume that without asking the Kerry camp.

YOU are the one being immature and irresponsible by not double-checking before making wild assumptions.

Personally I think Kerry would make a better canidate than either Clinton or Obama (and that's meant as praise for Kerry, not a dig at the others)
