John Kerry's done it again, this time in a speech before college students where he questioned the educational accomplishments of our troops. Kerry insists he botched his line and that President Bush was his intended target. I, for one, believe him: Kerry's a dolt and a miserable public speaker to boot, even worse than our president. However, Kerry's far more serious mistake was his not immediately apologizing and releasing the actual text of the speech but going on the attack instead. That Kerry, the richest man ever to run for president, has image problems with working stiffs and the military is painfully obvious. His latest gaff furthers the accurate perception of the Democratic leadership as millionaire socialists, didacts all too eager to instruct us how to lead our lives on the income they allow us to keep, while at the same time living their own pampered lives of luxury and privilege at a far, far remove.
A grieving father states it far more eloquently.
