…is like sending out Bill Clinton to defend his party’s chastity.
John Kerry returned from Vietnam to trash — falsely — his fellow soldiers as murderers, rapists and war criminals. He used that disgraceful performance to launch his career. Then he proceeded to get virtually every major national security issue wrong.
He supported appeasement of the Soviets and opposed the Reagan policies that brought down the Berlin Wall.
He opposed the Reagan Doctrine and thought Communism should be allowed to spread, unchallenged, in Central America.
He opposed SDI, was a roadblock to increased intelligence activity in the ’90s and insisted that terrorism was a law-and-order issue even after 9/11.
Now he says nobody has the right to define patriotism. Probably because it’s very difficult to find a definition that includes the behavior of John Kerry in the 1970s.
