The senator is textbook example of someone being “hoist by his own petard” or hanging himself, having been given enough rope. Face it: John Kerry lied. Mr. Lipscomb nailed him when describing Kerry’s handling of this: If lie is undeniable, attack messengers; if lie can’t be sustained, fault memory.
How foolish of him and his handlers. Look at the energy he and they have invested in defense and how much energy has been poured from some quarters-not from the partisan press, of course-into trying to get him to speak the truth.
If he hasn’t yet, what will it take? He won’t, we should all know by now-unless he’s going to wait until after the Republican National Convention and go public with some cloying, disingenuous contrite admission that he misspoke. He’ll never admit outright that he lied, however.p>Regardless of what he does, his comeuppance and the serving of his just deserts are certainly something to see, aren’t they? br> — C. Kenna Amos Jr. br> Princeton, West Virginia /p> p> Enjoyed reading the commentary about Kerry swimming from Vietnam. As a Vietnam vet, who kept his medals, based on the information that has come to light begin to see a very distorted picture of Kerry’s alleged actions and reality. Seems Kerry has skewed the facts to suit his own agenda. Am glad that Spectator is exposing the truth, and the ramifications related to the character of candidate Kerry. Now it needs to get into the mainstream press. br> — Bruce Squires /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
