Kerry's Medals

Big kerfuffle today over John Kerry's medal-tossing. Did he toss medals? Ribbons? His own? Someone else's? Listening to Mr. Waffle, one might be forgiven for thinking it was simultaneously all, or maybe none, of those.

It seems to me that if he had been so willing to return his medals, he'd have requested to have them stricken from his Navy personnel records.

Unless, of course, he then was and now remains nothing more than a posturing hack who wants to have his cake and eat it, too.

Kerry Threw his medals before he didn't throw his medals.

If he'd "expunged" his record he couldn't flaunt his military background on grounds to be president. Gotta at least TRY to get that vet vote, ya know.

Poll: Should President George W. Bush have to prove whether he fulfilled his commitment to the National Guard during the Vietnam War, as Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry has suggested?

I think Bush should provide proof of his service, so this issue can be settled, and the race for the presidency can continue.

Poll: Have you stopped beating your wife yet, as as Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry has suggested you should?

This is the kind of disingenuity Kerry, and it would seem you, have descended to, PB. Bush has already provided PLENTY of information showing he fulfilled his duty. What more is expected? If he provides information satisfactory for NEW criteria, will Kerry et al honestly accept that, or just move the bar again?

The race for the presidency is proceeding just fine, thanks. The only people who think this is an issue at all anymore, or that this in any way should stall the campaign, are Kerry, his followers, and Donk trolls who are still trying to make something out of nothing.
