I think Kerry said it in a moment of righteous anger. It's too bad that he wasn't able to bite his tongue before it came out. Bush used the same term when talking about Saddam Hussein before the war machine was set in motion, before we were let in on the big plan. His words?
"Fuck him."

Do we live in such a puritan society that a politician can't speak his mind. Senator Kerry basically summed up the feelings of the majority of the people on this planet.
Senator Kerry knows what its like to be in REAL combat, he has earned his say when it comes to the wrongful endangerment of our troops.
Mr Bush never earned that right, he was just given it. It also shows the fault of The Republican Party. They wanted someone who would be a puppet, hence why they selected Bush over a much more qualified individual like John McCain in the 2000 Primaries. This mess wouldn't be happening if McCain had been given the Republican Nomination, he seems to be one of the few old school REAL Republicans left.

Please. The "puritan" card is overused.

We have such things as decorum. A complexity of which most people do not realize.

Besides, it's not the young people in this thread who find it necessary to reduce the debate down to the level of this comment: "listen i think there are a handful of u that need to b put over my knee."
Well said. .

That is really not true.

Mr. Bush, who I did not support in the Primaries....won the nomination process.

Was McCain more qualified, yes. McCain came off terrible in the debates. He lost his composure with a reporter (mrs. Schwarzennager). He had the temper problem.

McCain has also been one of the Presidents largest supporters of the Iraq policy, much to my dismay. Up until recently, he has barely spoken a critical word of his policies.

I did vote for Bush in the ELECTION, not because I wanted him to win, but because I knew he had no shot at winning the ELECTORAL votes in the state of Massachusetts.

I am about useless ..... sorry.....meds kicking in....but....I think you are off on your theories above.l

Just because people vote him in, doesn't mean he has earned the right to be President.
Most American's are just so stupid that they vote for personality over education, credentials, and qualifications.
Let's see what did The Republicans have to choose from.

A. An articulate, educated war hero, and former POW, as well as years in public service. He spent five years being brutally tortured while Dubya was off getting high and drunk with his Frat buddies!Not to mention helping lead the crusade for campaign finance reform, something Dubya and others never want to see happen.

B. An AWOL Air National Guardsman, Failed Businessman, Lousy Governor, Not to mention a former cokehead and alcoholic. However he was supported by the Religious Right, and was the son of a former President. Not to mention he partially owned the Texas Rangers.......lord I hate the Rangers.

Gee.......tough choice.

I've turned into some damn liberal, course I've always been a progressive. But in response to the OMG special interest written into each legislation that may actually do a liitle bit of good. I've been forced to move to the used to be middle.

Like what is all in the Omnibus legislation. Several laws that were already defeated, such as new FCC legislation. removal of overtime laws, new pork barrel money..

Has any administration in your knowledge gotten their controlled commitees to add back defeated legislation to a different bill.

Not in my F***ing lifetime. This is another instance that he must GO.

Mr McCain and a few others are the only real Republicans left.
