The controversial Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, who helped scuttle John Kerry’s 2004 White House bid, are ready to launch torpedoes if the Bay State senator is nominated to a Cabinet post in the Obama administration, with one foe calling the whole idea an “abomination.” “We’re not too old to fight,” said Alvin Horne, a Vietnam veteran and a key member of the Swift Boat group, whose barrage of attack ads sought to discredit Kerry’s military record during the 2004 campaign. “If the commonwealth wants to send Bozo the Clown to (the) Senate they can do it Link repaired by staff
Here is a dose of reality for you people. Harry Reid has already said that the 60 vote rule in the senate to override a veto is being changed. (I would guess he will reduce it to 51 - in a move that he and other democrats were critical of, calling it the nuclear option.) I also believe the informal rule of allowing any senator to put a hold on a nomination will also disappear. That means President Zero will be able to nominate Jon Cary on a monday, and by the next monday, cary will be secretary of defense. The same thing will happen with judicial appointees. Get ready for it. We are doomed.
This military family has donated and will do so again, very happily. These men are heroes for speaking up. Kerry can keep his sorry butt in MA with the Stone woman. Patriots shouldn´t put up with these types. Tired of being polite.
It´s bad enough the (D)-uh-Masses elected this lying scum.Here is another dose of reality: Ms Lindsey was asked by Hannity how he would vote for Jon Cary to Cabinet level and he replied something to the effect the president is entitled to the cabinet he chooses.(All the while he´s raising hell about Susan Rice-HUH!?)Any bets on how McCain will vote on his good buddy?
I´m opposed to ex-military people being put in charge of the Pentagon to begin with,it´s clearly supposed to be a civilian position. But on top of that you can´t have a rabidly anti-war person being in charge of the military,it would cloud the judgment of when we need to intervene.
JOOO-OOhhhhhnnn "Moron" Kerry thinks the US Army was a ´monster´ that was unleashed during the Vietnam War. The names of 50,000 members of that ´monster´ are inscribed on the Vietnam Wall in Washington, DC. They died because America sent them to fight. They obeyed and gave everything.

John Fraud Kerreee ought to have gone to Leavenworth in 1971 for what he did in Paris. But our Republicans then had no more cajones to start that up than they do now.
And, he ought to STILL BE in prison.
We have been invaded from within. And with his nomination as SecDef, our bravest and best will likely leave their respective forces, and poseurs will be brought in to take their places. We will then have been effectively conquered from within.
I know my son won´t stay. He´s already looking elsewhere.
(P.S. #16 - FYI, this site is not Twitter. References to other posters should be as I did here, to you - by post number. It´s easier for later readers to refer back to the post you refer to. Thanks, from a later reader)
As of 2011, the black Viet Nam Wall has 58,272 names, unless more have been added during 2012.
Barry and most of the Dem Senators don´t care about the outrage Juan Fraud Cary´s nomination would invoke. They won. I´m sure they feel that the new, young voters don´t care about Viet Nam history - they care more about Sandra Fluke´s ability to have her birth control for free. Heck, these new, young voters don´t care about why the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been fought.
If another 9/11 on our soil happens during Obozo´s reign, he´ll probably surrender our country to whomever hits us. There won´t be any retaliation a la George W. Bush. Patriotism is almost a thing of the past, no matter how red the electoral map looks.
The Bay State´s Senior Senator, and Ms. Jane Fonda´s former Aide-de-Camp/horse holder for Secretary of Defense?.......During The Revolutionary War the "powers to be" also thought having Benedict Arnold in charge of the fortifications at West Point was a "cool" idea!

Benedict Arnold is the perfect example of the peril of giving a prima donna authority for any military matter. He felt slighted after the battle of Saratoga, he thought he should be further up the ladder of command, and because of a personal pique and desire for revenge he sold out his country and those men under his command.
Think about it. How many connections can you see with BHO?
The Swifties are certainly not “controversial” with me. I cheered when they threw Kerry overboard, and look forward to them doing it again.
But . . .there’s a lot of talk in MA that Kerry being given a DC job is a great opportunity for Scott Brown to run again. I don’t think it’s worth his time or trouble. The chances of the MA Democrats not being able to create out of whole cloth another dipstick Dem candidate like Elizabeth Warren is 0 to none. MA Democrats would vote for the dog on Romney’s car roof if they were told to. Cripes, they would send anybody in the MA legislatures in a heart beat. Coup Deval is panting to relocate. Or Mumbles Menino can be shipped to DC, still in his hospital bed. Maybe they would get Fidel Castro to establish a two week residency here and run a campaign all in Spanish. The Dems are not going to let Scott Brown win.
Right before the end of the 2004 election, it was rumored that a defense dept type was going to reveal this traitor´s discharge status. I kept waiting, but then it didn´t matter--whatever happened with that? Also, the lsm is constantly referring to "swiftboat lies". I never heard of one lie, but they keep saying it so that makes it so....amazingly, we´ve elected a guy who hangs with terrorists, now we´re going to accept a traitor as Sec of Defense???? I´m sick. Go Swiftboaters...
Expect to hear requests for the SF 198. It was promised but never signed. This would allow a peep into John F´n Kerry´s actual (rather than fictional) service record. How do you get a Silver Star, with V for valor, issued by three different signers, for killing an unarmed teenage kid by shooting him in the back? How do you negotiate with an enemy and escape punishment? Oh, there are so many questions! And so little time!
It was November 12th. His wife was on the phone and she was reading an email that she had just received from her boss at Sallie Zetterower Elementary School in Statesboro, Ga. “As of today, if you have a Bible verse on your school email and/or Bible verse posted in the classroom, please remove it immediately,” the email read. But it was the next part of the email that made Mr. Cook tremble. “If a student-led prayer is initiated, you must remove yourself and step away from the group,” the email read. Mr. Cook told me in a telephone interview that he was dumbfounded. “They have to physically turn their back
(Anchorage) In the three weeks since the U.S. Indian Law & Order Commission chastised Alaska for opposing Natives who want their own village cops and courts, chairman Troy Eid says he´s been called a radical and an outsider who shouldn´t be sticking his nose where it doesn´t belong. Eid swept aside such criticism Wednesday when the commission officially presented its report in Anchorage. He declared that Alaska "was on the wrong track" and that public safety and security were so bad in rural Alaska, especially for women and children, that it had become a national disgrace. (Snip) A life-long Republican,
Continued global warming poses a risk of rapid, drastic changes in some human and natural systems, a scientific panel warned Tuesday, citing the possible collapse of polar sea ice, the potential for a mass extinction of plant and animal life and the threat of immense dead zones in the ocean. At the same time, some worst-case fears about climate change that have entered the popular imagination can be ruled out as unlikely, at least over the next century, the panel found. These include a sudden belch of methane from the ocean or the Arctic that would fry the planet, as
For as long as anyone can remember, teachers at Brooklet Elementary School have posted Christmas cards in the hallways outside their classrooms – until Monday. When boys and girls returned from Thanksgiving break, they discovered that their teachers’ Christmas cards had been removed – under orders from the Georgia school’s administration. Robb Kicklighter’s wife is a third grade teacher at the school. He said many teachers are disgruntled by the school’s decision to confiscate the Christmas cards. “They took down the cards so the kids can’t see them,” he told me. “Some of the cards had the word ‘Christmas’ and
A stunning 40 percent of the staff at the state agency that oversees the glitch-plagued, befuddling $69 million Obamacare website earn six-figure salaries, according to payroll numbers obtained by the Herald. Some 21 of the 53 employees at the Massachusetts Health Connector make more than $100,000 a year, even as Bay Staters struggle to sign up for health care through a website beset by slow speeds and technical difficulties and a call center with frequently long hold times. Topping the list is Executive Director Jean Yang, who is pulling down $179,243. Chief Operating Officer Roni Mansu earns $178,415, while General
Washington - US President Barack Obama called Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu on Sunday from Air Force One to discuss the interim agreement struck between world powers and Iran over its controversial nuclear program. In the call, Obama told Netanyahu that the P5+1 — the US, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany — would use the next several months to forge a "lasting, peaceful and comprehensive" solution to the slow-motion nuclear crisis causing consternation throughout the Middle East. (Snip) Netanyahu on Sunday called the deal, hailed by the US, a "historic mistake" that would make the region more
The state’s $69 million Obamacare website is “overbudget,” has missed deadlines and now is bringing in eleventh-hour engineering assistance from Oracle, in the face of looming cutoff dates that could force some to go without health insurance, the Herald has learned. The fix comes after the Herald reported Saturday a mere 1 percent of applicants facing canceled health plans had managed to enroll in Obamacare plans through the state’s website, with just weeks before many plans ?expire Dec. 31. Gov. Deval Patrick yesterday brushed off any concerns about the system. “No, none at all,” said Patrick when asked if he
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
