Kerry In Irak – Soldiers Dining With Him Ask For “HALP”



The poor soldiers who have to dine with Kerry. You remember him, don’t you?

After John Kerry’s denigrating remarks about our soldiers, he is on his rehabilitation tour of Irak. He desperately wants to be President and figured that a meal with the troops would get his image back where it should be.

You remember those troops, don’t you? The ones begging for his help because Kerry thinks they were too stupid to get out of service?

As Gateway Pundit found, a guardsman’s mother says:

She said the soldiers see Kerry’s so-called fact-finding trip to Iraq as nothing more than a political ploy to rehabilitate his image in advance of another White House run.

“They’re not real happy that he’s coming over there because they think that it’s basically to get him out of the political hole that he put himself in,” she said.

The Massachusetts Democrat vowed before departing Wednesday on a nine-day trip to Iraq and five other Middle East countries that he would be happy to apologize to any soldiers he encounters in Iraq.

“For anybody who misunderstood [the joke] or got only the White House presentation of it, I’d apologize, obviously,” he told reporters.

On another note, Kerry was pleased to be Times “Person of the Year” :

Sen. John Kerry, D-MA, today announced he is “humbled and grateful” to be named Time Magazine’s ‘Person of the Year‘ for 2006.

“When I picked up my copy of Time at the newsstand,” said Sen. Kerry, “and saw my own image looking back at me, I thought ‘Of all the great people in the world this year — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, Kofi Annan, Kim Jong-Il — how can it be you, John?’” via ScrappleFace

      I hope that Kerry sat at a table where absolutely no remarks were directed his way, nor were any of his comments (if any) replied to.

      Maybe some of our politicians need public humiliation to put some ideas in their heads. Nothing else seems to work.

      STILL!!!!he’s better then that $%^&ing lier BUSH!!i still think you’re better of with a president who’s telling bad jokes then telling LIES that get your boys killed!! BUSH is the biggest disgrace EVER that fouled the chair of the oval office!! with his daddy a close second!!!!!!!!!!!!!WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!

    3. joe bear on December 17th, 2006 8:34 pm

      well,you reap what you sow,but he is a vet.

    4. dennisintn on December 17th, 2006 9:31 pm

      well, kerry has teddy boy’s blessings. that tells me everything i need to know.

    5. Skyboxx on December 17th, 2006 9:34 pm

      Hey Dutch, tell us how you really feel? Bush, Clinton, Reagan, Carter, Nixon, do you really think any of these men who have held the highest office are imperfect?

      I did NOT have sexual relations with that women – Bubba Clinton

      I simply didn’t know about Iran Contra – Ronnie Reagan

      I am not a crook – Trick Dick

      The most disgracefule president in recent times – Jimmy Carter. He let our boys die in the desert in an aborted mission to get our hostages out. Why? because he was an inept commander in cheif. He was a vet, but very poor commander in cheif. Reagan was considered great commander in chief. Bush 41, Clinton and Bush 43 average.
      Talk to military people before you TRASH a president next time.

    6. Leo Leonard on December 17th, 2006 10:33 pm

      I was in the military and proud of it. Imperfect is when you make a mistake. What Bush did was CRIMINAL!!! Commander is chief-everybody knows who runs the military and its not the president.

    7. Leo Leonard on December 17th, 2006 10:40 pm

      One more thing-before you call Reagan a great commander in chief maybe you should ask Oliver North-he left our boy out to dry right here in our own desert and lied or the same thing-I dont remember I just dont remember maybe I did I just dont remember.

    8. Jon on December 17th, 2006 10:55 pm

      what’s that yellow band on kerry’s left wrist?

    9. just moma on December 17th, 2006 11:07 pm

      Support our troops who volunteered to serve Our Country, right or wrong, when some families wouldn’t be caught dead having their sone or daughter serve; whoa look out for the draft!

      Just hope this doesn’t turn out to be another Vietnam.. run by politicians when should have been left to the Generals who know how to do it.

    10. Scrapiron on December 17th, 2006 11:48 pm

      Leo Leonard, calling someone a failure when you are part of a party guilty of letting 5 million people be slaughtered in Southease Asia and are now wanting to see millions slaughtered in Iraq. The democrats are responsible for more innocient people being slaughtered than Hitler. Hitler is already in the history books as an animal and you’d better remember that all history will not be written by the left wing liberals. Given it another 20 years and the truth about the cowardly democrats will take it’s place beside Hitler.
      Leo Leonard , I remember that name. Were you the one who joined the army, finished basic training and they had momma scream and holler that you didn’t know you might have to actually fight someone? I’m ready for that shooting civil war you guys promised. 50 million democrats will not be missed.

      I’ll take John Kerry any day. I appreciate the sacrifices he made for me as a soldier, as did John McCain. For that these along with the hundreds of thousands I am humbled by their bravery for putting themselves in harms way.

      As for Bush, Cheney & Rumsfeld well they will be receiving pensions that others deserve who have served our country & won’t receive squat & they don’t even need the $’s but it will just be a continuation of raiding our treasury while the hero’s go without, as bribes & cost plus never bid contracts are awarded & our troops are deprived of equipment they need in a timely manner.

      I’m sure that Senator Kerry was treated very well by our troops who knew it was spin & a big deal over a bad joke about Bush.

      At least John Kerry can admit a mistake within a few days unlike Bush, it takes YEARS having to put up with misinformaton (being kind) purposeful deception & not following professionals guidance who are dedicated to our country, not for personal benefit, but out of loyalty & dedication. I’d venture to say that Senator Kerry, no matter what his position, would & does value the advice of the military on the ground. I wish, oh how I wish the President would have done the same.

      We can agree to disagree.

      Happy Holidays, I wish our military wasn’t out of country but I most heartedly appreciate that they are as they care for us with their personal sacrifice & expense. Wish I could say the same for all of the “leaders”, I can’t.

      Screw Jon Carry and his B-I-M-B-O wife … he’s worthless and she’s a twit!! Embarrassment of the “Heinz” Family!

      @Jon: I guess it is the “Live Strong” band. A few years ago Lance Armstrong ( introduced this yellow band during the “Tour de France” cycling tour to support the cure for cancer. Every band costs one dollar as a donation to support cancer research. See also

      Damage Control for Mr. Kerry.
      I don’t think it will work, thou. Doesn’t look like in this picture our soldiers are too enthrall with Mr. Kerry.

      Is he eating the same food as the soldiers? I am astounded that he would trust the food made by people he insinuated were stupid. Or did he bring his own?

    15. on December 18th, 2006 10:36 am

      #14, that’s exactly what I see in the “photo op” too. See the soldiers staring straight ahead, not looking at Kerry even though he has his mouth open.

      Kerry may be a vet, but he’s a self made vet. Shot himself in the butt and got a purple heart for it! Then he came back to the US and made up stories for Congress. I assure you, the mass military does NOT support Kerry who hung a previous generation of soldiers out to dry. Also don’t forget that John Kerry himself supported Bush’s statements about Iraq having WMD, as did Clinton.

      Kerry thinks he’s man of the year? Just what blogging has he done recently? Any blogging has been done on his behalf. Bet he couldn’t turn his computer on without help.

      #10, am sure some of what you say is humor to make your point. All the same, high five.

      One of the Russian meeting dates Clint had, we were on a patrol where we had one of our own killed. So with Clint it is most personal to me.

      Kerry, no longer a veteran. One can undo being a veteran, and he meets that accomplishment from a couple of treasonist decades back. More on him: the thing of his being referenced as a “decorated veteran”, makes me cringe each time I hear it. Are there really any real veterans who sell thier lifes pots and pans putting out ‘I am a decorated veteran?’ Makes me want to punch him. If I had been around him during his rotten service I am sure I would have seen one of ours do just that. What a maggot. Turned on his own; turned on his country; he was a loser without a fight.

      Fonda, some movie stars of the time, plenty of songs of the day…guilty parties therein.

      All did more damage to our own military personel recovery and reentry to or society than the more honorable enemy. We lost no significant battles; cowards and backstabbers lost that war right here, too. Yes, history will not always be written by the liberals. Journalisum student, a rare butt in a liberalisum seat. –Millions died as we left, and the story goes mostly unnoticed. Communisum was altered by our sacrifices, its direction changed right there. But talking to liberals and telling them these things, they will only look to one verse or the other excusing their former treasonist ways, putting weight to their pockets so they can, as I often say, play on the debate see-saw. When Clinton, Kerry, Fonda’s are plainly mass murders.

      This note is too long, I do write too long anyway. However, for one who has had extrodinary experiences in numerous fields and endeavors, the most difficult thing to explain one persons gosh awful feelings of is: when Clinton was elected president of the United States, twice. Some murders take a while to solve.

      Hey was that Crow that Kerry was eating?

    19. Mortella on December 18th, 2006 3:22 pm

      #18, If it was not crow, it should have been. Kerry has had his military “service” pretty well laid out by the Swiftboat Veterans who actually served with him. They watched him take a purple heart for an injury that was so small as to not even require sutures, a band aid and bactine. He swore under oath before Congress to lies about our military and to atrocities he claimed he personally knew they committed which never happened.

      The only reason Kerry should be near the military is to apologize for his lies and slander.

    20. Skyboxx on December 18th, 2006 7:35 pm

      The army personnel tosses a glance his way as if to say “Shouldn’t you be at another table?” heh-heh

      Sounds like my earlier post hit a nerve.

      The USA with all its faults, regardless of who is at the helm, is still the greatest country in the world. If you lived in an oppressed nation (IRAN, KOREA or IRAQ under Saddam) your comments above would have landed you in a prison or shot. At least here we are FREE to speak our opinions. We can agree to disagree and still remain FREE. Really amazing considering what dictators due to people for speaking freely in other oppressed countrys.

      God Bless the USA and its FREEDOMS. God bless this CHRISTIAN nation with diversity in religion, politics, race and beliefs. GOD BLESS this blessed land and may we all enjoy peace on earth and GOOD WILL towards man. (Key the Charlie Brown Christmas special music)

    21. Mortella on December 18th, 2006 11:49 pm

      I agree, Skyboxx, and to paraphrase one of my favorite authors, Pat Conroy, The U.S. of A. at its worst is still so much better than so many.

      Only one thing has preserved our freedoms down through the ages and it is not the politicians with their words but our military.

      May God hold them close this Holiday Season.

    22. just moma on December 19th, 2006 2:14 am

      Yea! Swiftboaters. I bet Kerry ate little and then went back to his elitism food! like he did on many “food” shots before

    23. just moma on December 19th, 2006 2:17 am

      Just remember who are fighting and who have fought in the past for Our Freedoms and many freedoms in other countries… Our Veterans, past, present and future!

      If not for them we’d be speaking German, Japanese and/or Russian today.

      God Bless them

      Freedom is not free!

    24. Mortella on December 19th, 2006 9:12 am

      Actually, I have never really understood how John Kerry avoided arrest for those lies under oath he told before congress. For years, I fully expected his arrest and court martial for he should have still been under his Naval Reserve commitment while doing that.

      And I do not think military service is always the best qualifier for a president as the world is far more complex than that kind of simplistic thinking. There are other areas of expertise needed especially today with a global economy.

      I also doubt those casting aspersions on Bush’s service in the Air National Guard have anything like the six years he contributed in that respect, either. If he had really been pulling strings as some contend, he could have avoided service completely but he didn’t and that training is not as easy as some seem to think. Only Dan Rather and his ilk continue to harp on this long after being proved wrong but guess something lame to gripe about is as good as anything if all one wants to do is gripe.

      No longer holding my breath on all these wonderful new plans to govern we were promised by the opposition before the election for they just don’t seem to have one single new idea about anything that I have heard so far.

      Turn about is fair play, so let’s remember who is governing during the next two years and make sure we keep the whine level just as high and petty as it has been for the last few years. And remember that Kerry, Reid, Clinton and ALL the rest of those voted for going into Iraq, something they seem to have suddenly forgotten. They are as responsible as anybody on the face of the planet for our being there but doubly so for any failure because of their constantly giving aid and comfort to the enemy for political fodder.

      It is so funny that people still twist what kerry had said. This was the republicians last ditch effort to win the past election. Guess what? You republicians lost. I am so glad. We had a great article in our sunday’s paper showing pictures of the republicians that lost in Ohio packing up and clearing there desk. Now we can finally get something done…
