THIS GUY NEEDS TO GO
As I was listening to Bush speaking to the VFW, John Kerry thought he'd drop a little email into my in-box. He wants me to sign a petition against Bush. Imagine that. Anyway, he mentioned the upcoming speech to the VFW and is asking that Bush begin answering questions that have gone unanswered. This guy just won't shut up:
"President Bush has a major opportunity today. He's leaving Crawford to speak to the Veterans of Foreign Wars' convention in Utah. When he does, he needs to leave behind the pep talks, the open-ended "things are looking better" claims and the empty rhetoric.
It's time for the President to stand and deliver.
That's why I am asking you to support an "America Demands Answers" petition to President Bush. Starting with today's VFW speech, we're going to keep the pressure on George W. Bush until he finally addresses questions that have gone unanswered for far too long."
Mr. Kerry is right about unanswered questions. Kerry could take this opportunity to lead by example and begin to clear up a few questions we have regarding his military records. You remember the partial release, don't ya?
Why the blogosphere let this nabob off the hook on this one is a mystery to me. Not a question was asked of Kerry by anyone in the media about specifics. Nothing. The blogosphere has been silent as well. Since I have about 5 people who read here, I can hardly start the effort but it would be easy for one of the big blogs to get the ball rolling again. One lousy post.
If Kerry was pressed to explain only one item in his file, that being the discharge date of 1978, the whole thing would bust wide open again. Kerry wouldn't be the only casualty in the matter, either; the media would go down with him too.
