AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 9/08/2004 09:05:00 AM ----- BODY: OSC Reviews Hugh - Orson Scott Card has written a great review of Hugh Hewitt's "If It's Not Close, They Can't Cheat: Crushing the Democrats in Every Election and Why Your Life Depends on It." He also comments on John Kerry's whining:
Kerry feels fine about accepting money and sharing a podium with Hollywood fanatics who hurl vile and baseless charges against the President, but when the Swift Boat Veterans lay far more serious - and far more substantiated - charges against him, then like a crybaby he says, "No fair!" The fact is, Kerry tries to have it both ways on everything. Slanderers on his side have nothing to do with him; but if supporters of President Bush make accusations against Kerry, then that's dirty politics and President Bush must be behind it.
Kerry's whining about the "attacks" at the Republican convention and the Swift Boat Vets is partially responsible, I think, for his drop in the polls. No one likes a whiner, especially if the one whining has made such a big deal of his status as a war hero. It's evident that John Kerry has led a pampered life. As a liberal in Massachusetts, he's never been questioned about his record, or challenged on his beliefs. Anyone who attempts to examine his record is accused of "questioning his patriotism" or reminded of his "combat tours in Vietnam." For too many campaigns, Kerry has skated on Vietnam and aided by a compliant Boston media. It shows in his comments and speeches - this is one seriously out of touch man, and he should not be allowed near the Oval Office. --------
