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

He was immediately set upon by the GOP for his ridiculous comment.

The Massachusetts Democrat called the White House attack "a classic GOP textbook Republican campaign tactic" that reveals Republicans'"willingness to reduce anything in America to raw politics."

Huh? What do you call what Kerry was doing? If he was talking about the president, as he is now trying to claim, then he was trying to reduce the war to raw politics.

Thank GOD this fruitcake didn't get elected. And thanks for your help this year, John.

Of course even though Kerry did apologize for his stupid remarks, that wont stop the WH from smearing him.

This morning on MSNBC, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) apologized for his comments on Monday. “Of course I’m sorry for the botched joke,” he said, calling his comments “pretty stupid.”

About hour later, Tony Snow said the following on CNBC:

All you have to do is say, I apologize. I said something, it came out wrong, I’m sorry. And instead, what Sen. Kerry has done, is he’s tried to whip it into a big thing…

That’s exactly what Kerry has said. According to the White House, the story is over.

Instead, we will continue to hear over and over how Kerry denigrates the troops by misstating his rather bad joke about the President's lack of interest in facts or real data.

But kevin, come on. Attacking the president's lack of actual intelligence is hardly politicizing the war, not even if you were telling a bad and badly mangled joke..

Let's review.
Yesterday Kerry said he would never apologize.

I guess he was for the joke before he was against it.

I'm not buying the whole joke excuse. That's a joke? You better study and do well in school or you might wind up going to Yale and Harvard, becoming a Governor and then President of the United States?

Kerry is such a phony and he has a long record of disparaging the troops. This was not the first time.

It's especially funny coming from Kerry, who had WORSE grades than Bush and made all of his money marrying rich widows.

James at the Swing State Project had exactly the right idea last night.

If the GOP wants to play that game, fine. Remember this nugget, from an August 2004 Bush speech? "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."

Everyone had a big laugh over Bush's verbal gaffe two years ago. Did you see John Kerry and the Democratic Party issuing press releases calling on Bush to cease his treasonous war against the citizens of the United States of America? No, because to do so would be completely ridiculous. Just as ridiculous as the sanctimonious, dishonest drivel that Tony Snow and George Bush are trying to feed into the media narrative tonight.

Excellent analogy. Imagine if Dems played by GOP rules. Bush accidentally says that his administration "never stops thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people." Immediately, CNN and MSNBC show "Breaking News" updates about the president's admitted desire to hurt Americans. Bush said so himself! He can't deny it; we have the video of him confessing his own commitment to harm the United States! It must be true! When will Republicans publicly repudiate the traitorous president? How can he be trusted ever again? Why does Bush hate America?

Of course it's absurd, and yet, we saw a media firestorm yesterday that made just as much sense.

John Boehner blames troops for Iraq mess

Joe - Once again you are buying into the Iraq is a mess line and blaming Bush for it.

Lets blame those really responsible!

For example the electricity problems in Baghdad - Terrorists keep blowing up transmission lines.

People are murdered by the terrorists.

Ieds are set off by the terrorists who could care less if Muslums, Americans or any coalition forces are murdered.

Iraqis find it hard to trust Iraqi police and troops because the terrorists will murder, steal the uniform and go out murder innocent civilians in it.

The problem is not Bush, Cheyney, Rumsfeld or American troops in Iraq or Afghanistan. It is the terrorists.
