Kerry promised that Democrats would retake the House and, according to one attendee, said, “If we take back the House, there’s a case to bring articles of impeachment against this president.”
“Then he got a bit nervous when there wasn’t a lot of laughter or cheering and said, ‘Don’t tell anyone I said that,”’ added the attendee to the event at Finn McCool’s Bar. Word, of course, did leak out to the press, and that forced a Kerry spokesman to push back on the statement, explaining that Kerry was merely trying to make a joke.
But Kerry has used similar language before, and has talked up censuring President Bush on several occasions in the past, and not in the context of making mirth.
“I was hoping to see the Senator move past a lot of this nutty stuff he’s been tossing around,” says the party attendee and former Washington headquarters volunteer. “But now he just looks like a sore loser who can’t admit that he failed. I’ve moved on, and a lot of other volunteers have moved on to other campaigns and candidates for ‘06 and ‘08. And Kerry isn’t it.”p> TREASURY THIS MOMENT br> Interesting that chief of staff
