I know the Kerry statement at he college is old, but I have a regular with some relation in IRAQ and we got off on What he said and some of the responses so he sent me this. Bet he will never publish this one in his next campaign. For your enjoyment.
This is a letter written by a marine in response to Kerry's insult on
Yesterday John Kerry said, "You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well, and if you don't, you get stuck in Iraq"
So I wrote him a letter:
I am a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I am currently on my
second tour in Iraq, a tour in which I volunteered for. I speak Arabic
and Spanish and I plan to tackle Persian Farsi soon. I have a Bachelors
and an Associates Degree and between deployments I am pursuing an M.B.A. In college I was a member of several academic honor societies, including the Golden Key Honor Society. I am not unique among the enlisted troops. Many of my enlisted colleagues include lawyers, teachers, mechanics, engineers, musicians and artists just to name a few. You say that your comments were directed towards the President and not us. If we were stupid Senator Kerry, we might have believed you. I am not a victim of President Bush. I proudly serve him because he is my Commander and Chief. If it was you who was President, I would serve you just as faithfully. I serve America Senator Kerry, and I am also
providing a service to the good people of Iraq. I have not terrorized
them in the middle of the night, raped them or murdered them as you have accused me of before. I am doing my part to help them rebuild. My role is a simple one, but important. You see Senator Kerry, like it or not, we came here and removed a tyrant (who terrorized Iraqis in the middle of the night, and raped them and murdered them). And we have a
responsibility to see to it that another one doesn't take his place. The
people of Iraq are recovering from an abusive relationship with a
terrible government and it's going to take some time to help them recover
from that. We can't treat this conflict like a microwave dinner and throw
a temper tantrum because we feel like it's taking too long.
Senator Kerry, you don't have to agree with this war. You don't have to
say nice things about those of us who choose to make sacrifices for the
rights of every American rather than sit back and simply feel entitled to
it. But please Senator Kerry, if you're going to call me a stupid
murdering rapist, stick by what you say. Don't tell me that I misunderstood or that you would never insult a veteran because you're one too. Having been there and done that does not give you a free pass to insult me.
My suggestion for you, Senator Kerry, is to remember that your speeches are recorded, and broadcast to us simpletons over here. You may want to write down what you want to say before you say it, maybe have somebody look at it before you say it and tell you what others might hear. Remember that we can't read your mind, if there are any
misinterpretations in what you say, it's because you didn't communicate
Good luck to you Senator Kerry, if nothing else it's always entertaining
to watch you try and climb out of the holes that you constantly dig for

Ouch, that letter has got to hurt, so let me get this straight, neither Kerry or Bush will be running in the next election correct?
Kerry is posturing to place himself in the running. President Bush can not hold the office of President again--2 terms is the absolute limit.
A superb rebuttal to Kerry's gaffe.
He does more to prevent his own successful run for the Presidency than all of our efforts combined...
