This is certainly not surprising to learn, but it is amazing that Democrats are always this brazen about their hypocrisy:
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said taking money from a group doesn’t equate to supporting them. “It’s what you fight for and how you vote, it always has been,” Kerry said in a recent interview. “It’s hard to run for office and not have somebody in some sector or some industry have contributed to you; but the question is, are you voting commonsense and values and for the interests of the people, broadly?”
See? It’s ok to pander for money from greedy, Wall Street 1%-types, who, say some OWS clowns, should be executed, and throw them under the bus while on the campaign trail at the same time.
It’s also OK for Senator Kerry to dock his boat in Rhode Island to avoid his state’s onerous luxury yacht taxes. It’s all for the betterment of Massachusetts voters, and Americans in general. So, when will you ignorant Tea Partiers stop being such rubes?
A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.
“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.
Excuse me while I channel my inner Pontius Pilate here, but what is “the truth”? Perhaps its the truth that most Americans are suffering financially right now? After three years of Democrats running both chambers of Congress, coupled with the last twenty months of complete Democratic control on the trifecta of Federal power? And all they hear coming from Washington by elitist snobs like Kerry is just more ways to squeeze the middle class?
Or is it the “truth” that only ineffectual and sloth-like buffoons like Kerry and his ilk see from their focus group polling and endless adherence to failed, idealistic “better-living-through-government”, policies from inside the Beltway?
Kerry made the remarks on voters following questions about U.S. Rep Barney Frank’s re-election campaign and queries about securing federal funding for the Hub hospital.
“I think a lot of the anger today – while it’s appropriate because Washington is broken – is not directed at the right people,” said Kerry. “Barney is prepared, as others are, to explain what we’re doing. I think when people hear the facts and they see what we’re doing, it frankly makes sense.”
In the interview, Kerry added that voters should be mad at stonewalling Republicans and “big money” in politics instead, referring to a bill blocked by Republicans Thursday that would reveal corporate and union leaders who fund big-bucks political ads.
Idiot. Washington is indeed, broken. Does someone have the cojones to tell Kerry that he is “Washington”? That he and the other entrenched and arrogant leftist douchebags that infiltrate Washington D.C., are the Establishment?
Someone also please tell the senior Senator from Massachusetts that “the facts” are out there. Now more than ever, more people have access to more information about anything they’d ever wanted to know about, and then some. The facts are out there Senator, and the people are not liking what they see.
And it takes some real hubris to complain about “big money” in politics, when you’re John Kerry, husband to the heiress of the Heinz family fortune, and when the biggest political splash you’ve made this year is that you were caught docking your yacht in Rhode Island to avoid paying your home state’s luxury tax.
This is your modern Democratic party, ladies and gentleman. Hubris and entitlement, all while walking all over the sensibilities and intelligence of the American people. The basis for modern Democratic politics is that they know better than you about what’s in the best interest of yourself and your family. You shouldn’t make any decisions on your own because, well….you’re just too ignorant.
Somebody get this man some perspective:
Last p.m., Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) and his wife Teresa Heinz Kerry went on “LKL” to discuss her recent breast cancer diagnosis, but the continued John Edwards saga and MA politics were also on the mind.
Kerry, the man who is arguably most responsible for thrusting John Edwards onto the national scene, discussed what he makes of his ex-running mate’s demise. “What can you make? I mean, honestly, it is a tragedy,” Kerry said.
When I think “tragedy”, I think of an earthquake in Haiti that kills over 200,000 people.
I think of 3,000 innocent Americans being slaughtered on 9-11.
I think of reformists in Iran getting beat down by a brutal dictatorship.
What I don’t think of, is a narcissistic, egomaniacal ambulance-chaser, with tons of money thinking he can screw every broad that walks just because he’s a limousine liberal running for President. A sleazy politician who was dumb enough to knock up some New Age pot-head with a camcorder, and be forced to admit it to his cancer-stricken wife, and ultimately, ends his campaign to be a bogus populist savior to the Democratic faithful.
The John Edwards story is not a “tragedy”, its a national disgrace. That the Democratic party came this close to nominating this piece of garbage to the highest office is scary.
These limousine liberals will never get it, will they?
That’s not what I call a “tragedy”. And I don’t think that’s what most decent people would call a “tragedy” either.
Liberals have no shame.
