Video: Kerry lies about Obama’s willingness to meet personally with Iran

posted at 1:04 pm on May 15, 2008 by Allahpundit

From Goldfarb to me to you, courtesy of RedLasso. Who better than Waffles to spin this flip-flop by Obama, one so egregious that the evidence exposing it can be found on the candidate’s own website? Hey, John? “Direct presidential diplomacy” means direct presidential diplomacy.

Give him credit, though, for noting that Bush’s hands aren’t as clean as they might be in this regard. Exit question: Do my ears deceive me or am I actually hearing John Kerry, of all people, objecting to someone else “playing politics” abroad?

John, you should consult your friends the Viet Cong about this.

How much is all this Obamanews worth to the Dems? With the press reporting every breath Obama takes John McCain better figure out, real quick like, how to knock the wind out of him.

They need to put Waffles on as much as possible. Fox should seek him out for interviews weekly, if not daily. This guy can singlehandedly turn the tide against the Dems. He almost ruined the Dems’ momentum in the ’06 election, before the Dems put a clamp on him and locked him in a closet.

In light of this new information, we should surrender in Iraq.

On the other hand, someone needs to explain to Kerry what “without conditions” means.

John Kerry in Davos, Swtizerland ca. 2007

“When we walk away from global warming, Kyoto, when we are irresponsibly slow in moving toward AIDS in Africa, when we don’t advance and live up to our own rhetoric and standards, we set a terrible message of duplicity and hypocrisy,” Kerry said.

“So we have a crisis of confidence in the Middle East — in the world, really. I’ve never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today.”…

Pots and kettles.

I suppose Kerry would negotiate with “Jenjis” Khan, no?

What’s really terrifying about all of this is the number of Americans who buy into the Dems’ crap. One would like to think the average citizen is smart enough to see the threat to the nation Osama Obama represents. But noooo….

Nothing beats the memory of the orange glow of Jacque’s Man Tan when he was rested and ready to take on the world.

There must be a symbiosis between Waffles and the candidate who wants to be left alone to eat them.

Is parsing words to create a new reality part of the initiation to be a Dem spokesman?

How does Jacques interpret the standing O that President Bush received from the Knesset?

John Kerry’s not so secret any longer MySpace entry:

Hi there fellow bloggers. My name is United States Senator John Forbes Kerry from the great state of Massachusetts. You can call me JFK if you want. I was born on December 11, 1943, although people tell me that I look at least 20 years younger. It’s probably my great hair and rugged good looks.

I graduated from Yale in June 1966 in the top 1% of my class. To earn extra money during the summers, I loaded trucks in a grocery warehouse and sold encyclopedias door to door. That is probably one of the reasons that I am so humble. Over my four years at Yale, I maintained a 96 grade average and received a 101 average in my senior year.

I am one of the most senior members of that grand and much loved and respected institution known as the U.S. Senate. Probably the only living Senator even a little bit greater than me is my dear friend Ted Moore Kennedy. I also have a very high IQ. Very high. At least 250 on a bad day. Much higher than that creep who stole the election from me. I know that he stole it because exit polls are never ever wrong.

I am also a great war hero. I set all kinds of records for heroism when I was in Vietnam. I was grievously wounded at least three times yet continued to insist on staying in the fight when lesser men would have given up. I won the bronze star with extra V’s for extra valor and the Silver Star for defeating a whole battalion of NVA with my bare hands.
Sometimes I feel like a had to carry all the water for those other ungrateful swiftboaters.

I sometimes like to chill out after a long day of serving the American people by having a double martini with my good friend Ted. We usually have a servant bring 21 double martinis. I get one and Ted gets one for each of his fingers and each of his toes. Contrary to what some of my very few enemies say I never marry women for just their money. They must also have a pulse. BTW, did I mention that I was in Vietnam? I was also in Cambodia, so don’t forget that!

I would like to think that I am open minded, honest, polite, heroic and trustworthy. And I appreciate the same qualities in others although I am realistic enough to know that no one else could come close to me.

Turn offs: People who play politics abroad. That is just so wrong. Other politicians who spend more on haircuts than I do. That is just not right at all.

Who I’d like to meet:
…other progressive bloggers. Other great war heroes who hate that damn S-T-U-P-I-D Texan in the White House and those lying sons of bitcher swiftboat bastardos whose pants are on fire! Cool people who live close to Washington D.C. so that we can get together, talk about you for about 30 seconds and then spend about 9 hours talking about me. BTW, did I mention that I was in Vietnam and Cambodia? Just one more BTW, if anyone has found my magic hat please return to me.

Hate to say it but John Kerry at Davos sounds just like John McCain in Columbus today. America is the “problem” because we didn’t support the Kyoto protocol, we don’t listen to terrorist nations, we don’t respect open borders…. etc.

Pretty damned sad that the GOP nominee comes off sounding like John Kerry.

Kerry is the biggest reason there is to make sure Obama doesn’t get into the White House.

Connie on May 15, 2008 at 2:54 PM

Before I respond to your question directly I want to talk about the feelings of the men who were reliving their experiences in Vietnam. They relived the absolute horror of what this country, in a sense, made them do.

They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, tape wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of George Bush, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the country side of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.

I’m sorry, what was the question again?

John Kerry’s greatest hits: First, his trip to Pat’s Steakhouse in Philly where he asks the waiter to put provolone in his Philly cheese steak. Can you get any more out of touch than that? Second, the time in October, 2004 he pretended to be a hunter and emerged from the wilderness in his Banana Republic gear and said: “We all bagged a duck”. Sorry, John, but there was one problem: There were four “hunters” and only three dead ducks (well not exactly. About a week later, there was a fourth dead duck!)

Larraby on May 15, 2008 at 3:42 PM

John Kerry walks into a bar. Bartender says, “Why the long face?”

Akzed on May 15, 2008 at 3:45 PM

So just so we’re clear, Bush never said “Obama”, but Obama’s guilty conscience led him to respond, because he knows the position Bush was criticizing was his. As Mitt so hilariously put on Fox News earlier (paraphrasing slightly, I can’t remember his exact words) – “when you throw a rock over a fence at some dogs, the one that barks is the one you hit”.

So now, we’ve not only had everyone on the left flipping out, including Biden calling it “bullsh**”, but leave it to Kerry to be so stupid as to attack Bush for attacking Obama, even though Bush simply attacked a positio, which means Kerry (and everyone else) knows that this IS Obama’s position. And then, leave it to Kerry to seconds later deny that this really is Obama’s position… which is odd, because if it’s not, then why is every Obamanut out complaining? Bush never said Obama, so if this isn’t Obama’s position, why so defensive? As we know, this IS his position, from his own words and website, etc. It’s a little odd that his supporters seem to have gone out lying about this at least 3 or 4 times in as many days (I’m sure it the reason isn’t at all related to the reason he’s begun wearing his lapel pin either, right? *wink*)

So, in a shorter version – Bush attacked a position. Knowing it was Obama’s position, Obama and Friends come out to blast Bush, even though Bush never named Obama. These supporters also deny that Obama’s position is his position, even though it is an indisputable fact, and the very fact that they’re defending Barry in the first place proves that it is his position, or they wouldn’t need to defend him over some generic comments Bush made. Whew!

Democrats make me dizzy.

RightWinged on May 15, 2008 at 3:47 PM

Good grief! Bush didn’t have to mention his name. Obama knew instinctively Bush was referring to him.
If the shoe fits Obamacans! Or is it Obamiacs? Whatever! HA! HA!

It wasn’t provolone (which is acceptable on a cheese steak), it was swiss cheese.

pelosi and her meetings with syria and iran in syria

hoyer and his meetings with the muslim brotherhood, hamas, and hezbollah in egypt

carter and his meetings with syria, hezbollah, and hamas

obama minions giving guarantees to chavez and the farc in ecuador

this democrat party are all treasonous pigs!!!!!!
