    "John Kerry is a wonderful person. He was only saying something to insult Bush for all the mistakes Bush has and is making. Kerry served our country for many years, he would never put the troops down. Unlike Bush, who is a coward and had his dad get him out of fighting the war, just like how his dad and all of their cronies have done everything for him his whole life. Must be nice to be able to fake your college degree."

    OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELLLLL ARE YOU THINKING?????? Kerry put down the very troops he served with in Vietnam on numerous occasions, and his opinions haven't changed at all since then. John Kerry is such a hypocritical, pompous a** that he's willing to criticize Bush's grades from college when he got WORSE GRADES THAN BUSH IN COLLEGE!!!!!!!!! Kerry is a proven liar and fake, and it makes me sick that he nearly became President. Wake up, America!

    He made a joke about education...I'm paraphrasing, but it went something like "You can study, get good grades, get a degree, and do the smart thing-----or you can screw around, NOT get good grades, and wind up in Iraq." He meant it as a cut on Pres. Bush, but he phrased it in a way that could have been directed at the troops.

    And now we get to see wht our troops REALLY think of John Kerry----to the chagrin of the entire Democratic Party!

    Here's the deal: Kerry kinda sorta threw out a remark that many of us think is pretty much true (many young people who don't have rich parents and didn't get full rides to Harvard are now fighting George Bush's ego-war), GOP used this moment of weakness to go on the attack. Why? The reason why is that they have already fixed the election, but they needed a supposed "event" that supposedly turned the American people against the Democrats at the last minute.

    "Two days ago, Kerry stirred controversy when he told a group of California students that individuals who don’t study hard and do their homework likely would “get stuck in Iraq.” Aides said the senator had mistakenly dropped one word from his prepared remarks, which originally was written to say “you end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq.”

    He misquoted his own speech (which, I assume, was written by someone else). What he SAID was (to paraphrase) "If you aren't educated and don't go to college, then you end up in Iraq" - which sounded like everyone in the armed forces is stupid. What he was SUPPOSED to have said was "If you aren't educated and don't go to college, then you end up SENDING us to Iraq - Just ask President Bush." He just can't tell a joke!

  • He said something to the effect of kids need to stay in school and do good in school and be educated otherwise they will end up in Iraq. Implying that the people in Iraq fighting the war are there because they are uneducated.

    He was attempting a "joke" about President Bush it appears, but he mangled the words so bad it came out as a direct insult to the intelligence of US troops.

    He refused to apologize for a couple of days after the incident until yesterday. What arrogance.
