John Kerry Visits Iraq

Thanks to a tip by Night Rider, and a blog at www.benofmesopotamia.blogspot.com, whose post on December 18, 2006, detailed Kerry's visit to Iraq, I received some interesting photos.

Okay, before you get too excited, let's qualify these.

Remember how members of the left try to convince us with brains in our heads that half of the military is populated by Democrats and how many of them don't want to be there? In fact, Kerry says that if you don't get a good education, you'll get stuck in Iraq.

If the troops are truly half Democrats, that particular half of our military people would shun the likes of Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity, and flock to folks like John Kerry. Right?

Wow, am I laughing now. Proof is in the pudding, folks. I love it when reality proves that the left is populated, for the most part, by people hardly rooted in reality.

Okay, now look at the pictures.





Explanations?

Bill O'Reilly, when he visited, had over 400 soldiers waiting in line to meet him. Sean Hannity's visit was similar.

This first photograph of Kerry eating alone, with no troops approaching him or wishing to eat with him, was captured by one of the troops, since the press was amazingly not around to snap a shot of this.

The second picture is the gusher of tears I think that Kerry may have shed for not being received as he had hoped.

Or perhaps he shed no tears, and simply blamed it all on Bush.

Boo freakin' hoo. If anyone is shocked that the troops ignored that sorry excuse for an American (dudkitty) then they need to quit huffing paint.

Excellent Gibbs!
The photo speaks for itself!

Have a Happy New Years Gibbs!

Even so with the Senators office responce. Kerry is NOT well liked by many in the Military.
And he should and continue to meet the troops over there for his blundered remarks!
FTGF!

We now know that the story the right wing put out pertaining to this picture is a lie.

Really, MK? visit http://michellemalkin.com/archives/006613.htm

Why is it that if a Dem acts like an idiot, and there is hard evidence, there is always those who claim it's a conspiratorial lie, but if a Republican may have acted like an idiot, even if there is no proof, the Dems claim it to be fact?
