Screamer Dean just keeps digging that hole. It’s quite a show watching the Democratic party disentigrate before our eyes. The infighting alone is worthy of popcorn to watch it, but then there’s people like Howard Dean to offer us these jewels that are so easily thrown back in his face. Gotta love it.

Dean must have figured that Republicans would be right to call Clinton and/or Obama blatant opportunists, so he made a preemptive strike.

The real issue is this,” Dean said in March 2004, when endorsing formal rival Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., “Who would you rather have in charge of the defense of the United States of America, a group of people who never served a day overseas in their life, or a guy who served his country honorably and has three Purple Hearts and a Silver Star on the battlefields of Vietnam?”

John F’n Kerry was in Viet-F’n-Nam?

Meaning of Chaos…… “not another $0.02 and the possibility of a Clinton or Obama in the White House”.

Shamnesty…. “Tell the Biggots to ‘Shut Up’!” Oh yeah, how’s the war chest going John, Soros is still behind the Democrats, as is Hollywood, and the Unions,…… besides the “Base”, how in hell are you going to compete against your opponents?

Especially with the McCain/Feingold Campaign Finance Reform?

Howard(Ehaw)Dean is your slightly above irritating Liberal
that does’t know when to shut-up,and yes he does owe John
McCain an apology!

This is typical of the Liberal Party,lets go down memory lane.Remember the incident awhile back when they thought
it was comical for Nwet to leave Air Force One,Via the back
door,and if memory serves Newt is still waiting for that apology!

With President Carter,who knew the Helicopter mission was
compromised and the enemy knew they still were coming,still
sent them,brave American soldiers to their deaths,you still
have to try,right!

In Somolia,Bill Clintons meals on wheels UN mission to go
in and try to get Mobaskyhook from stealing the food.
The United States military was denied Armour support,and we
all remember that disgusting scene of United States soldiers being dragged through the streets like dogs,if this is what Howard Dean thinks of John McCain,this is how
he thinks of the United states Armed Forces!

Howard Dean,for once in your life,from SNL-MANUP and apologize!

The Senate history of both John Kerry and John McCain show:

1) They are no friends of POWs

2) Their Senate agenda is in line with the published agenda of the Communist Party USA.

I wouldn’t want either one of them being the Commander-in-Chief of our military forces. I believe they would sabotage our efforts and lead to the deaths of our service men and women.

I respect the true heroes of our country, people like Professor Blather, too much to sit idly by and let a Communist become their Commander-in-Chief.

With respect…….. just imagine…..

The Democratic Convention is on fire, riots in the streets, fights on the convention floor…. popcorn, yes.

But when the RINOs walk into the Republican Convention, and see a sea of “Secure the Borders NOW” signs, everywhere, outside, inside, behind every reporter, asked every question, again, and again, and again, making it a Party Platform that will not go away…….. they will have to address this.

By the way……

The Hutchison amendment reads, “Nothing in this paragraph shall require the secretary of homeland security to install fencing, physical barriers, roads, lighting, cameras and sensors in a particular location along an international border of the United States, if the secretary determines that the use or placement of such resources is not the most appropriate means to achieve and maintain operational control over the international border at such location.” Thus, critics argue the amendment results in a de facto repeal of the SFA.

We have been betrayed!

…… and I, speaking for myself, will NOT go away.

We can do this…..

They already have. No matter how much he’s pressed, McCain says he wants to secure the borders and find a pathway to citizenship for the illegals. Whether or not he’s trustworthy, we believe him, etc., that’s how he intends to address it.

Every breathing creature on the face of the earth could be holding a sign, but that’s how he’s addressing it.

TheBigOldDog on March 29, 2008 at 8:03 AM

5 March 2008. As of early March 2008, a website titled “Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain” has appeared on the Internet. This site contains monstrous lies about John McCain’s behavior as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. The site is the work of one Ted Sampley of Kinston, NC. I will post on the MIA Facts Site responses to Sampley’s lies about McCain. Meanwhile, start at this link to learn the background of Sampley and his attacks on John McCain.

Summary. For some years now there have been steady attacks on the valor and patriotism of Senator John McCain (Republican, Arizona). McCain was a Navy aviator, shot down over North Vietnam on 26 October 1967 and released at Operation Homecoming in March 1973. He was severely injured in his ejection and landing and endured unspeakable tortures. The attacks on McCain originate almost entirely from Vietnam veterans and many of his attackers accuse him of collaborating with his Vietnamese captors, in spite of testimony from other POWs as to his bravery, leadership, and valorous conduct. Why and from where come the attacks on McCain? The source of the attacks on McCain is, mainly, one MIA “activist” who accuses McCain of treasonous activities; his accusations are based on misquotes, misrepresentations, and Vietnamese wartime propaganda. Yet, this story has gained the status of gospel among the McCain haters and the MIA “activists.” Read on for the rest of the story.

http://www.miafacts.org/mccain.htm

Those who promote these false claims have produced a vast array of half-truth, untruth, hearsay, unsubstantiated claims, personal attacks, and mythology. The accumulated effect of years of nonsense has been exactly what one would expect:

The big lie has been accepted as truth in some quarters.

So, what do I know about it?
My Credentials

I am Joe Schlatter, Colonel, U. S. Army, Retired. I retired on 1 April 1995. My involvement in the MIA issue came during two assignments:

February 1986 – July 1990
Feb 86 – Dec 88: Chief, Analysis Branch, Defense Intelligence Agency Special Office for POW-MIA Affairs
Dec 88 – Jul 90: Chief, Defense Intelligence Agency Special Office for POW-MIA Affairs
July 1993 – March 1995: Deputy Director, Defense POW-MIA Office
Vietnam Veteran
2/13 Field Artillery
February 1969 – February 1970

Red Pill, I know you are a lunatic Huckster lover, but really, quoting Sampley is an all time low for you. It puts you down there in “Valiant” territory. Notice that even “Valiant” has stopped quoting Sampley in his attacks on McCain because Sampley has been proven by actual decent people to be a liar and a fraud who defrauds military families for a living.

funky chicken on March 29, 2008 at 8:36 AM

Why is Sampley Attacking McCain?

Why is Sampley attacking McCain? I believe there are three reasons:

McCain’s support of normal relations with Vietnam;
McCain’s refusal to be drawn into the “live POW” whirlpool; and
McCain’s attempts to expose the questionable fund-raising that surrounds the MIA issue.
McCain’s Position on US-Vietnam Relations and on the “Live-POW” Question

In the late 1980′s, McCain took the position that the US should move toward normal diplomatic relations with Vietnam in return for their increased cooperation on the MIA issue. Sampley recognized — as does the rest of the “activist” community — that such talk in high places can be disastrous to their efforts to recruit and to raise money. Their recruiting and fund raising pitch is the same: US POWs are still being held, alive, in Vietnam and we need just a few more dollars from you to free them.

As US researchers probe into Vietnamese wartime records, and as US search teams recover remains from crashsites and battlefield gravesites, the number of unaccounted for Americans goes down. More importantly, it is clear from the information collected that no American POWs were retained in captivity after Operation Homecoming. The “activists” do not want this information to become known because they depend on folks falling prey to their claims and then donating money or other support — such as the proliferation of “POW-MIA Remembrance Sites” on the WWW.

McCain refused to be drawn into the live POW battles and he continued to support normal US-Vietnam relations. For a returned POW to take these two positions was more than the “activist” community could stand.

McCain’s Exposure of Frauds

In the closing days of the SSC, a hearing was held that focused on individuals and groups who are raising money on the MIA issue. A friend of mine who was on the SSC staff briefed McCain on the money-raising activities and McCain was incensed that anyone would play on the emotions of families to enrich themselves. McCain wanted to hold a hearing that would expose these activities. There was, however, a problem. McCain’s two main targets were former congressman Billy Hendon and Sampley’s Homecoming II with its vigil booth on the Mall, selling T-shirts and other paraphernalia. Senator Bob Smith, Vice-chair of the SSC, was godfather and protector to Hendon and Sampley. He intervened with SSC Chair John Kerry and watered down the hearings into questionable fund raising so that Hendon and Sampley were not targets.

As a result of Smith protecting Sampley and Hendon, the hearing was limited. The first panel was a group of professional fund raisers and representatives from state consumer protection offices. They testified that professional fund raisers have guidelines as to how much of the money they raise goes to their operation and how much goes to the client. Generally, 70 percent should go to the client. McCain forced several of the fund raisers working for various MIA activists to admit that they were keeping 70 percent. When the hearing then progressed to the few “activists” who were there, the questioning by the senators forced them to admit that their appeals for funds were based on phony information and that they regularly misrepresented themselves and their activities — all in the name of trying to recover missing Americans and to aid MIA families.

funky chicken on March 29, 2008 at 8:51 AM

McCain discusses Sampley:

From John McCain’s book, Worth Fighting For:
Ted Sampley, a war veteran and veteran POW-MIA activist, who favored fatigues and feather earrings as his costume of choice, was quite a character. I took him for a charlatan within five minutes of meeting him. And nothing he has done since has caused me to change that opinion.
:::snip:::

Sampley had recently married the daughter of an MIA, who sensibly divorced him a few years later, but his MIA in-law status gave him claim to membership privileges in the associations of POW-MIA families, which privileges he would use to make as much of a nuisance of himself at their conventions as he did during our hearings.

:::snip:::

……….. I realized that although he was detestable for his influence on families who wanted to grasp at anything, even his palpable nonsense, to nurture their hopes for recovering their loved ones, he was really little more than a buffoon, and that my self-respect wasn’t threatened by his antics.”

“I am well familiar with Mr. Sampley, and I know him to be one of the most despicable people I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. I consider him a fraud who preys on the hopes of family members of missing servicemen for his own profit. He is dishonorable, an enemy of the truth, and despite his claims, he does not speak for or represent the views of all but a few veterans. The many veterans I know would think it a disgrace to be considered a comrade or supporter of Ted Sampley.”

funky chicken on March 29, 2008 at 8:53 AM

Dean is an idiot and wouldn’t recognize a real leader if he or she jumped up and bit him in the back side.

Good question though; do you want a courageous, dedicated Amerian that placed his country above himself or, do you want a man that has done, well . . . nothing.

rplat on March 29, 2008 at 9:00 AM

This will backfire on the Dem’s.

Calling John Kerry a hero based on his service record is a joke. John Kerry should earn the Golden Oswald, for embarrassing the service he joined, and being celebrated by the same enemy that was torturing Maverick. The only torture Kerry knows is the woman he married to get rich.

Mexicans come to the USA because they choose to. They aren’t brought here as slaves, so your plantation analogy is off base. But, that analogy is totally in-synch with the published agenda of the Communist Party USA. They want amnesty so that the ranks of the low-paid working-class voters swell and they can stir up animosity between them and the “plantation owners” in order to bring about their clearly stated goal of “Socialism USA”.

Do you support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America?

“lunatic Huckster lover”? No.
“Jesus Freak”? Yes.

Show me any other Presidential Candidate, other than Huckabee, who could and would be willing to publicly confess with their mouth, “Jesus is Lord”.

Not “Jesus is my Lord”, but “Jesus is Lord”.

And for anyone who wants to shout “Separation of Church and State” I ask you to show me where those words show up in the Constitution of the United States of America. They don’t.

The first amendment was designed to protect the Church from the Government, not to protect the Government from the Church.

I don’t want a Congress that tries to establish a state religion. But I do want a President who can confess “Jesus is Lord”. Doing so is following the advice of the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court:

Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.

It is to be regretted, but so I believe the fact to be, that except the Bible there is not a true history in the world. Whatever may be the virtue, discernment, and industry of the writers, I am persuaded that truth and error (though in different degrees) will imperceptibly become and remain mixed and blended until they shall be separated forever by the great and last refining fire.

When God works a miracle to make a true Christian (one who can confess with their mouth that “Jesus is Lord”) candidate for President this election, vote for that candidate! If that person happens to be someone other than Mike Huckabee, I myself will vote for them!

Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:3 (New King James Version)

Jesus is Lord. He is Lord of lords and King of kings.

These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.
Revelation 17:14 (New King James Version)

Jesus is Lord of lords, King of kings, President of presidents, Chief Justice of justices, etc., etc., etc. …

Every time I get frustrated with McCain, those purple hearts shame me. I don’t like his stand on inmigrantes but he’s one hell of a mans man.

And I’m waiting for Reagan to rise from the dead, become 30 years younger, and run for president. Neither is happening.

And like one of my favorite bloggers, Stoaty Weasel says in her brilliant Zombie Reagan poster, “Optimism, Conservatism, BRAAAAAIIIIIIINS”.

S. Weasel’s funny as hell. And no, she doesn’t know me from Adam. I just enjoy her work.

Snort. So that strong Christian discernment led you to tie yourself to Ted Sampley?

Or any tool, no matter how evil, is something you will employ to try to discredit a decent man because Huckabee didn’t get the nomination?

A month ago I would be hard-pressed to defend McCain but he’s our nominee and there’s a lot more than one letter difference between Kerry (D) and McCain (‘R’). How about: courage, honor, fortitude and selfless service to his country.
We don’t hear a peep from Dean for months and this is the best he can do? Yep, he’s a seditious, chicken-bleep idiot. Ye-haa!

Is he city counselman of city counselmen? Ombudsman of ombudsmen? High secretary of under-secretaries? Chief executioner of junior executioners?

How about Pope of Popes?

Deer Hunter, but I could vote for Duncan Hunter

Does your screen name “MB4″ mean “Mexico Before…”?

No. It is a geographical location.

Mexicans come to the USA because they choose to. They aren’t brought here as slaves, so your plantation analogy is off base.

The reason that Republican supporters of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” (AKA, Shamnesty) want it is so that they and/or their campaign contributors can have serf labor. They would probably prefer actual out-and-out slaves but that is
illegal.

The reason that shamnesty Democrats want this is so that those who are now illegal can become legal and vote for them. Many of them probably also want to do this for the same reason that shamnesty Republicans do too.

Does anyone think that many of these shamnesty politicians really care one wit otherwise for the illegals.

Does anyone think that any of the shamnesty politicians are going to invite these Mexican Indios and Mezclados to join their elite/exclusive golf clubs?

Come to live in their gated communities, other than as servants?

Invite them to their yachts, other than as low paid deck hands and/or servants?

Invite them to their cocktail parties?

Introduce them to their daughters?

The big majority of the Mexicans who have come here/will come here are Indios and Mezclados, not the Spanish descendant light-skinned ruling class of Mexico. This is a form of ethnic cleansing by Mexico’s ruling class.

So the shamnesty politicians like John McCain are aiding and abetting and facilitating ethnic cleansing.

If the U.N. were not such a joke, they would all be standing trial for trying to reintroduce a form of latter-day-slavery in the United States and for the mass ethnic cleansing of Mexico.

Do you support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America?

Or, do you support the goals of the Communist Party USA?

Dean says McCain is an opportunist…but wasn’t it John Kerry who went back to the spot he engaged the enemy with a Super 8 camera to recreate parts of the event… and then use it in a bio narrated by Morgan Freeman at the Democratic convention? “Reporting for duty!” anyone? God, that was cheesy…

Dean can call me back when the home video turns up of McCain recreating his shoot down and capture.

Unlike Hillary, McCain actually did experience a cork-screw situation as a result of enemy fire.

watchmen on March 30, 2008 at 12:47 PM

If John McCain doesn’t use this as a campaign ad in the general election, he’d be foolish. Show the video of dean saying this to start off (if there’s video of it and minus the medals part) and then fade to a live shot of McCain saying, “howard, I couldn’t agree with you more, thanks for your endorsement.”

Use their own words against them.
