Here are some interesting comments re: His supposed apology.
John Kerry apologized. Or did he?
The media is saying this issue is over because Kerry apologized.
For the record, Kerry apologized for a "poorly stated joke"
and expressed "regret" for a "verbal slip" that was "misinterpreted".
But is that an apology? The liberal media says the story is over.
Take a moment to read his apology in its entirety and decide
Listen to what one high-ranking member of Congress said:
"He can apologize all he wants. It doesn't remove the
sentiment that escaped his mouth that day... And I find it
something that is unacceptable... I don't know if any
apology is adequate."
Wait... that was Nancy Pelosi's response in 2002 to Trent Lott's
apology for comments Lott made honoring the late Strom Thurmond
at Thurmond's birthday party.
Lott apologized. Then he apologized again. And again. But the
liberal media and leaders like Pelosi refused to let up. They
said Lott’s original words exposed Lott's true sentiments.
They literally forced him to resign as Senate Majority Leader.
But we're supposed to give John Kerry a free pass.
So, you decide. Is there a double standard in the media? Has
John Kerry really apologized, or did he simply pass off
blame on "Republicans" who "misinterpreted" his comments?
Again, for the record, here is what John Kerry said:
"You know, education, if you make the most of it and you
study hard and you do your homework and you make an
effort to be smart, you--you can do well. If you don't, you
get stuck in Iraq."
I'm even more offended now that Kerry has pseudo-apologized. I
just sent my second round of faxes to Senator Kerry and other
Democratic leaders. If you want to let Sen. Kerry, Nancy Pelosi
and others know what you think, go here:
Thanks for taking action,
