: Kerry's Firefighter Union Pals Attack Rudy Here's this Rudy and the firefighters story. This is fascinating. The International Association of Firefighters yesterday afternoon in New York "released a video full of angry testimony belittling Rudy Giuliani's support of New York City firefighters." They're mad as hell, claiming Rudy is running around claiming he was a big leader and pulling everything together after 9/11, and he didn't do diddly-squat. Firefighters died, Rudy didn't care, blah, blah, blah. So this is being compared to the swift-boat attack. The news on this is portraying the Giuliani camp as seeking to avoid a Kerry-type mistake. Don't worry, media. There's no comparison between John Kerry (who served in Vietnam) and Rudy Giuliani, because Rudy is not a wuss. He's going to punch back at this. You know what Kerry's problem was? What the swift boat guys were saying was true! I keep hearing all this, "He should've fought back." What was he going to say? Nobody has discredited anything the swift boat veterans said! The big problem is if somebody charges you with something and it's true, what are you going to do? You do what Kerry did: you try to ignore it. You don't elevate it so that it gets any more attention. The problem is the swift boat guys kept running the ads, and the Drive-By Media asked, "When are you going to fight back?" Kerry was saying, "When are you going to defend me? I shouldn't have to fight back. You Drive-Bys are on my side. When are you going to attack the swift boat guys?" Then the Drive-Bys, "Okay, we will." So they tried to attack the swift boat guys, and the swift boat guys were undaunted. They were undeterred. They had the facts on their side. It's amazing what you can do when you have the facts, when you have the truth, and when the people you're talking about know it and can't refute it. All they can do is say, "This is out of place in American politics! Why, this is hitting below the belt. Why, this is unkind. This is just uncalled for," blah, blah, blah, blah. That's all you can do, and then you're kind of toast. And speaking of the International Association of Firefighters, guess who was their candidate in 2004? Ah, John Kerry (who served in Vietnam). They were all over the Kerry campaign in '04. "The IAFF backed Kerry in 2004, helping salvage a listing campaign in the primaries. IAFF President Harold Schaitberger was a constant fixture behind Kerry as he took the stage in Iowa, New Hampshire and other arenas to claim victory on his way to winning the nomination.... The first blow from Team Giuliani came in a release mocking the union as the 'International Association of Partisan Politics' and showing pictures of Schaitberger standing with Kerry. The campaign pointed out that the IAFF has supported Democratic presidential candidates since 1988. Giuliani's campaign also pointed out that Schaitberger has held a number of roles in Democratic organizations and has contributed financially only to Democratic candidates." Don't forget the firefighters that called here. Remember the firefighters that booed Mrs. Clinton? This is another one of these union things, where the leadership's coming out and saying, "Firefighters hate Rudy. Firefighters think Rudy is a phony baloney, plastic banana, good time rock 'n' roller." The rank-and-file doesn't all think that, but the leadership does. So Rudy's fighting back. It's not going to be anywhere near the swift-boat thing because Rudy can fight back with facts and figures. >

"Should we be surprised? The amount of outside group attacks we saw in 2004 will be nothing compared to the attacks we will see on candidates from both sides from outside groups in 2008."
trovalta_stinks_2 :
"What facts? Those people didn't serve with Kerry. The people who were on the same boat with Kerry during Vietnam supported Kerry. What the swift boat vets showed me is that there is nothing too shameful that Republicans won't resort it. It was on the order of putting Max Cleland, a triple amputee, in the same ad as Osama Bin Ladin and saying McCain had black bastard children and was brainwashed was my communist. There is no low Repubs won't resort to."

"Firefighters have been critical of Rudy since 9/11. This is not new. Their internet ad is new, however, and right on the money."
ohiofirefighter42 :
"The rank and file has been pissed at Rudy since he decided the cleanup of the pile wasnt going fast enough, oredered them off the pile so the could evrything off with excavators and dozers, Rudy ordered the police to pull the firefighters off the pile and only relented when the firefighters stood their ground and refused. If he isnt willing to let the firefighters of New York to recover their dead, will he allow the military to get their dead off the battlefield?"
beth :
"I don't think it has anything to do with Kerry. It's more likely because Giuliani's stance is in opposition to the Union stance on a lot of key issues. - He's been very outspoken against Unions. - His law firm represents Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's oil company. - He's against the Employee Free Choice Act which many of the Unions are supporting. - His idea of health care insurance requires families to find & purchase it on their own; no more employer health care plans. - He supports privatized Social Security. btw, In 2004 a lot of the Unions were supporting Gephart (not my personal first choice) for the Democratic Party nomination. While a lot of us rank & file are pretty conservative in many ways, we vote for our paychecks, insurance, and retirement."

NO NASTY ANSWERS OR ANSWERS ABOUT SELF-ESTEEM MY QUESTION: after you read the story: DO you agree with Susan that all Kerry is saying is that Patti is thin with shape STORY: The two players are Kerry and Patti. Kerry and Patti who were having a conversation about many things and then all of a sudden the following happened. Kerry said: Patti I think you are a size 5/6 in clothing, even the temp that works for me said you have to be a 5/6 in clothing. Patti didn't say anything. Kerry said; you have hips, but they are NOT big. Look at my hips, my hips are big yours are not; Patti just listened and didn't say anything.. At 5:00PM as Kerri ,Patti and Susan walked to their cars together Kerry told Patti again that Patti looks like a 5/6 in clothing. Patti asked Susan (a person who witnessed the conversation) Does Kerry think I have big hips; Susan replied; No Kerry does not. Kerry even told you that she doesn't think you have big hips. All Kerry is saying is you are thin with shape. "

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Kerry Kennedy say that Sen. Hillary Clinton is the best candidate in the presidential field. "Hillary Clinton will move our country forward while promoting its noblest ideals," they say in this op/ed piece.

Writes Joseph Raglione, for The American Chronicle: "A few days ago, John Kerry and Edward Kennedy sent me a generic email asking I write for their candidate, Barak Obama, on the American Chronicles. I thought about it for five minutes and then decided, what the hell, I've spent my whole life fighting for underdogs! Why stop now! Go Senator M

It's in Obama's best interest to be a proud "liberal." Democrats need to learn how to embrace this label, much in the same way Republicans have embraced the term "conservative." For the longest time, Democrats appear to have been apologizing for their liberal positions. Don't end up like Kerry, Gore, and Dukakis.

Jolted to read John Kerry's insensitive references to, "the Swift Boats we loved while we were in uniform on the Mekong Delta" -"the boats we honored when we were in uniform in Vietnam". Kerry earlier called the war an atrocity. Remarks especially sickening for those who, like Jane Fonda, sided with Vietnam fighting Japan, France and U.S.
