John Kerry Says GOP Lies

John Kerry is making the circuit for the upcoming election and is stumping for members of his party. He is also preparing for the 2008 Presidential race but like Hillary, he is not openly acknowledging that fact. On the stump Kerry said the GOP lied about Foley. lied about Iraq and lied about the problems with North Korea.

“A lie, a lie, a lie, a lie. What we have in Washington is a house of lies, and in November, we need to clean house,” Kerry, D-Mass., said Friday night during the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s annual fall fundraising[sic] dinner.

“They tell us we’re making progress in Iraq and that there is no civil war. That is a lie,” he said. “It’s immoral to lie about progress in that war in order to get through a news cycle or an election cycle.” Access North GA

Certainly there have been setbacks in Iraq but it is not a lie that we have had successes. What is a lie is the way the war has been portrayed by the Democrats and its puppets in the MSM. There are many good things taking place in Iraq but we only hear about the bad. What is immoral is to constantly provide one-sided information so that America does not get the full picture. There is no civil war in Iraq yet but the country is dangerously close to one. Continually saying that something is happening when it is not is what a real lie is and that, is immoral.

As for the Foley case, the investigations have not completed and yet Kerry is telling us that the GOP lied about the whole thing. It is not known yet who knew what and when but in Kerry’s mind it is settled. We may well find out that people knew very little beyond the emails that were sent and investigated. We might find out a lot of people on both sides of the aisle knew what was going on. If we find that Democrats had the IMs months ago and held them will John Kerry come back and tell us that they are the ones who lied? Kerry seems to want us to think it is immoral to lie about progress to get through an election cycle but that it is OK for his party to lie about what others have done, what they have done and what they will do, just to get through an election cycle. Look at most political ads for either party and you will see lies designed to get through a political cycle.

A lie is a deliberate attempt to conceal the truth. A lie is when a person states something that is patently untrue or unfounded in order to advance a position. Here is an example of a lie:

They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.

A lie is also when people change facts or portray things differently in order to alter the perception of the past. Bill Clinton has been doing this while trying to rewrite the history of his weak Presidency. He blew a gasket when his weakness was exposed with regard to Osama bin Laden and the events leading up to 9/11. Bill Clinton, of all people, cautioned that ABC ought to tell the truth. The truth is, while the current administration has some responsibility for 9/11, the Clinton administration shares much of the blame. Their weak stances and inability or unwillingness to act allowed our enemies to become emboldened enough to attack us. Clinton does not like the idea that he is responsible for this so he wags his finger and becomes unhinged in an attempt to change public opinion. His parrots on the left have repeated his denials.

With regard to North Korea, the Democrats are placing the blame squarely on George Bush when Bill Clinton gave North Korea all that they needed to build nuclear bombs. This was Clinton’s idea of negotiating, give them what they want and they will leave us alone. The Democrats, faced with North Korea biting them in the rear, have been parroting the Clinton lies that he had an agreement in place. Yes, and the agreement was not even in the file cabinet before North Korea began building nukes. If Al Gore had been elected in 2000 we would likely still have a nuclear North Korea because the seeds were planted on Clinton’s watch. Of course, Gore being a liberal, he might have given North Korea more to appease them. While we are on the subject, 9/11 would have happened regardless of who won the 2000 election because those seeds had been planted as well.

It would have been better if the Democrats had just said they were doing what they thought was right under the circumstances at the time. That would be more palatable than the attempts to rewrite a history that is so well documented. They can not do that of course, because then they would be admitting that they do not know what is best for the security of this country and they would have to give Bush the same “doing what he thinks best” consideration. The Democrats certainly can not do that, after all, they have an election to worry about.

    Give me a break!

    I remember several years ago when His Bloatedness The Swimmer (aka The Admiral of Chappaquiddick) said, “Shame! Shame!” on the Senate floor. Same manifestation of idiocy.
