kerry: "i would've immediately sought out france's opinion"

in his ongoing effort to trick americans into thinking he would be tougher on terrorists than george w bush, john kerry this week criticized bush's reaction to the news of the 2001 september 11th attacks

"Had I been reading to children and had my top aide whisper in my ear that America is under attack, I would have told those kids very nicely and politely that the president of the United States has to call France right away'' Kerry said. "And I would left the classroom immediately, leaving a room full of 6 year-olds fearing for their lives. i would've used the extra seven minutes to discuss--with important world leaders--what america would be permitted to do in response to the attack that would be sensitive to the feelings of the perpetrators and their supporters in the world community.''

even teresa '4 more years of hell!' heinz-kerry appears to doubt her husband on this oneif i smile real big will you believe me?

john kerry has previously said that he is worried that america's unilateral actions to defend itself against terrorists have offended the world community, and that he would have consulted respected world leaders like jacques chirac, vladimir putin, kim jung il, and (then) saddam hussein on how america could best wage a kinder, gentler--"more sensitive" war on terrorism.

even though kerry sat around paralyzed by fear and an inability to think for over 40 minutes (almost 6 times longer than the president did) after the second plane hit the world trade center, he is confident that, if he had been america's commander-in-chief at the time, he would have sprung into action immediately. and even though senator kerry has the advantage of hindsight, and the account of his own reaction tells us differently, we have no doubt but that he is telling the truth, and is completely without guile--just like he is with his vietnam stories.

That's Kerry for ya. He just can't walk the walk. I don't know about you, but asking the world weaders on how the US can react to an attack sounds like asking permission to me. It's like FDR asking permission to go to war with Japan after Pearl Harbor's been attacked. What ever happened to Teddy Roosevelt's motto: "Speak softly and carry a big stick." The US needs nobody's permission to defend itself! I don't care how the world will react, if somebody's out to kill us. You better damn sure know we're coming for ya.

Good post!

I really like Guiliani's statement that Kerry is an armchair quarterback to Michael Moore's coaching.
