Bob Kerrey Calls Obama a Delusional
Liar; Renders Himself MSM Nonperson

Newsbusters, by P.J. Gladnick

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/30/2014 6:22:08 AM

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

Kerrey must feel safe in his tax return filings or maybe it´s just the fact he doesn´t care anymore about covering for The Precious. The MSM as noted will sweep this under the proverbial rug.

Kerrey has an affinity for calling his own party´s presidents out. In 1996, he characterized then-President Bill Clinton an "unusually good liar".

The amazing take away line was when he admitted that "everbody since 1913 (meaning Democrat Presidents) have had a mandate to raise taxes…"

Yep, that´s who they are, period….raise and raise and raise taxes until we have a government dominated society…that is their mandate…..since (at least) 1913.

This article should be a Must Read. Former Senator Kerrey gave a lot for his country - he was a Navy Seal and he lost part of his leg in combat. I don´t think he is intimidated by punks like Obama or wusses like the MSM who are hell-bent on destroying the country he fought and sacrificed for.

Here is part of his bio. Most people outside of Nebraska or the U.S. Senate wouldn´t know of his courage.
Awarded: Congressional Medal of Honor on May 14, 1970 by President Richard Nixon, “For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a SEAL team leader during action against enemy aggressor (Viet Cong) forces.”
Other Awards: Bronze Star, for action Feb 25, 1969, in Thanh Phong, Vietnam.
Contributions Bob Kerrey served with distinction as a Navy SEAL in Vietnam from January – March 1969. On March 14, 1969, Kerrey led a SEAL unit on a daring operation to capture key Viet Cong political cadre personnel. He was severely wounded in an intense firefight by an enemy grenade that cost him part of his leg. Kerrey continued to direct his men in the firefight and extraction. The captured prisoners provided critical intelligence for the U.S. Kerrey was subsequently awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions.

Thank you Senator Kerry. Your courage in the face of danger has not waned.

To be fair, let´s look at it from the Obamamedia point of view:

1. All criticism of Dear Leader Barack Hussein is racist.
2. Bob Kerry is a Democrat.
3. Democrats cannot be racist because they care so deeply about helping people.
4. Therefore, Bob Kerry´s criticism of Dear Leader Barack Hussein does not exist.

See, it makes sense in whatever they´re pretending to use for minds.

Two points:

2) This interview took place in Kerrey´s New York office.

Sorry for a second post but wanted to update #9. Bob Kerrey was not in the Senate any longer when Obamacare was passed. He retired in 2001. Ben Nelson was there and did vote for the ACA - it was known as the "corn husker kickback". Nelson retired in 2012 and Kerrey ran against Deb Fischer and lost to her.

Glad to see that the article is a Must Read - it wasn´t up yet when I logged on.

The MSM outlets are collectively (pun intended) like the Dutch boy in the fable. Standing with their fingers in the holes in the dike while the dike itself is dissolving before the flood of truth trying to seep through.

It is good that the delusional liar reality is catching on, but the truth is that the label is equally applicable to virtually every single elected democrat in Washington.

"You lie and I´ll swear to it" is the secret code phrase clearly understood by political hacks from Harry Reid on down and by the lickspittle MSM that comprise the DNC propaganda machine.

Democrats like Bob Kerrey may try to expiate the shame of their complicity with progressivism but we are about as likely to read about in the MSM as we are to read any facts about Fast & Furious or Bengazi.

I liked the part about the bell curve. It is refreshing to get a democrat to make a small nod toward reality! Where his acceptance of reality breaks down is in his belief in always raising taxes to expand social programs. There has to be a limit on this solution or it will be used till you kill the goose that laid the golden egg - as anyone could have learned in the children´s fable by Aesop. What I would suggest if the nation ever manages to save itself from this present disaster is a strict prohibition on any program funded by any federal revenue that redistributes wealth or pays any expenses for individuals or corporations either. This would not end all welfare but only push it back to the states where it belongs. If one state is irresponsible it goes broke but at least there is somewhere for the citizens to flee in that case - and hopefully wise up the next time! The federal government would be an institution that provides a foundation to protect all others from themselves!

Don´t get too enthused with Kerry No. 24. He has many good qualities but even though he saw things clearly when he was in office, he never failed to vote with his fellow Democrats.

If I remember correctly, it was Kerry who , when asked why he was retiring, answered "because I´m tired of having to be a fool" or words to that effect.

bob kerrey is an elitist hypocrite democrat. Thus, there must be a selfish motive behind this harsh denouncement of obama. Perhaps he has his eye on another run for public office. After all, like ben nelson, he benefits from a media driven reputation as a centrist. What´s more, in his recent race for US Senate, kerrey was endorsed by rinos rudman, simpson and hagel. Maybe he seeks a plum job in the piaps administration?

And, Debra Winger, #33. In fact, some have questioned whether the baby that she had shortly after she broke up with Kerry, and suddenly married Timothy Hutton, was really Bob Kerry´s child. Don´t be fooled, guys. Bob Kerry can lie with the best of them. If he has dissed Obama, there is a reason for it; usually political. Please God, don´t let it be to try to run for office in Nebraska again. We have some terrific Tea Party candidates running. We don´t want him.

Most of us here are willing to cut our L.com posters a lot of slack when it comes to basic spelling/grammatical/typo/etc. errors, BUT we do need to be as accurate as possible with names/relationships/facts/etc. Kerry and KerrEy are not interchangeable for reasons we all know too well. And it was Debra Winger with whom Bob KerrEy was involved. And it was Jerry ´Moonbeam´ Brown who was involved with Linda Ronstadt.

Maybe I´m too picky about details like this but to be taken seriously in our posts, we have to take a minute to check our facts.

Before you start slobbering too much over this clown, remember that he is the same hack on the 9/11 Commission who tried to blame the attack entirely on Republicans and who recently ran for US Senator in Nebraska as a carpet-bagging NYer and assured everyone that, win or lose, he was moving permanently to the state. He hasn´t been back since he lost. He certainly knows what lying is all about.

Kerrey by just being in that left wing cabal shows me what he stands for. Whatever he did while in office probably caused harm to this nation. Democrats are stupid and I´ll just call him ´a special kind of stupid´. Don´t fall for this clowns criticism of Obama. Read the post from the people of Nebraska.

What is really important here is the debt of gratitude we owe to the UK press for bringing this to our attention. [Attercliffe and JoniTx, you let us down on this one; you should have gotten this 28 March David Martosko article to us sooner. I jest, of course; there is darn little in the UK press which escapes your respective seines.]

Seriously though, with the liberated on-shore media such as Breitbart, combined with the refreshing UK media (e.g., Daily Mail) and the tenacious James Delingpole, we are breaking the hegemony of the US media, most of whom are Democrat/"Progressive" house organs. We´ve even had a few good articles from Pravda (theirs, not ours),

After reading this article you can see that the time has come for the Democrats who want to remain in power after the November election to start jettisoning Obama and his failing policies, and to move on to start supporting a New Democrat candidate who the party will put up for President after the 2014 election.

The rap should still be on those Democrats who voted for Obamacare and who are now seeking re-election, and no doubt they will attempt to escape voter scrutiny for that by pushing the old Democrat mend it don´t end it mantra as far as the Obamacare dibicle is concerned.

All of our State sanitized, horse blindered comedians
(Letterman is the best socialist brainwashing example) could learn from Mason´s long running successful talent

Mason, Kerry, Gates, Atkisson, yes, Snowden, are just the beginning of a torrent of whistleblowing truth tellers who are breaking through the Communist Iron Curtain
of PelleyCBS news censorship.
The UK Daily Mail, a growing mass of strong people in the internet, are freeing us from tyranny ........ And with a little help from our few friends in talk radio and FoxTVNews, we will take back America !

Is it too much to ask for us to keep straight the distinction between Bob Kerrey and John Kerry? Way too many remarks here (and especially with the NewsBusters article) appear confused about there being two people and which is which.

Bob Kerrey earned his Purple Heart and has had a number of honorable and respectable roles in government, unlike John Kerry, whose entire resume is sufficiently slimy to require a shower after one reads it. To be fair, though, Bob Kerrey promoted Al Franken´s election to the Senate. That pretty much nullifies all the good he´s done, in my book.

#24 cracked me up, as Bob Kerrey´s wife is named Sarah Paley...

Thank you for the post,#12. If ever there was a Democrat Senator named Kerr(e)y, who deserved to brag about service in Vietnam Bob Kerrey does, but Bob Kerrey never had to brag and remind people of his service. His service does all the talking.

I haven´t always agreed with Bob Kerrey, but there are parts of what he says here that I agree with very strongly.

Until he changes parties and works to defeat them more than any other republican (which wouldn´t be too hard), he´s a Dimocrat and cannot be trusted. He may "tell the truth", but he still part of the problem and his "truth" is part of a strategy to gain power for himself and take away momentum from the opposition.

Kerrey doesn´t get it. The Democrat party of today are all myopic in their quest for the "Nordic Model". All they can see at the end of the tunnel is a Democratic Welfare State. Dam* the torpedoes, full speed ahead. It´s not just Dear Reader.

This thread is conspicuously generating a whole boatload of activity, isn’t it? Delusional Democrat liars aren’t often exposed by fellow delusional Democrats. Anyone, Democrat or otherwise, who didn’t immediately or soon thereafter peg Obama for the fraud he showed himself to be from the very outset, was delusional him or herself. Going to the lengths Obama went, in order to conceal his entire past life, was a dead giveaway for anyone paying even a modicum of attention. So, after five years, Bob Kerrey finally speaks out. Big Whoop! Stop the presses? I don’t think so.

Earlier posters have pointed this out, but it seems some are still confusing Secretary of State John Kerry and former Senator Bob Kerrey.

SoS John Kerry is from Massachusetts and famously served in the Navy, including a four month tour in Vietnam during which he received three questionable Purple Hearts, a Silver Star and a Bronze Star. He came home to betray and demean the men with whom he had served. He also threw away someone else´s military medals under the pretense they were his own.

Former Senator Bob Kerrey was a Navy Seal, seriously wounded in Vietnam and awarded a Medal of Honor. He also received a Bronze Star for an action which received a great deal of criticism, involving civilian casualties.

This is from a July, 2001 article in Commentary Magazine: The story of Kerrey’s raid was first uncovered in 1998 by Gregory L. Vistica, then a reporter at Newsweek. But Newsweek declined to run Vistica’s scoop at a moment when it might have derailed Kerrey’s fledgling presidential candidacy, and the story lay gathering dust for over two years.


These are two different men with different backgrounds and even the surname is spelled differently. How can anyone get them confused? They are both Democrats, of course.

I remember horror stories during the Vietnam war and afterward. It was the first time I had heard of children being used to kill our servicemen. (Cowards hide behind women and children and use them to kill their enemies.) It was horrific to read or hear of an innocent little girl being strapped with a grenade and walking into a group of our men to kill herself and the men. One can only imagine having to deal with that situation first hand. (I´ve heard heartbreaking stories of many who couldn´t cope with the guilt of having killed women and/or children to save their own lives and those of their fellow servicemen. They turned to alcohol, drugs, etc., and even suicide.) The enemy wasn´t always dressed in uniform and women and children could be as deadly to our men as any combatant that was in uniform. That doesn´t excuse killing civilians for no reason, but it provides understanding about the difficulty of decisions that had to be made to protect servicemen. The expression "war is hell" was coined for a reason.

Add to all of the above the fact that the anti-America, leftist, anti-war movement was
doing everything that it could to present all of our troops as "baby-killers". How ironic is that? The left calling someone else baby-killers. If anything, the left was more virulent then than now. They were mounting a war then to achieve the control they have now.

Bob Kerrey may be as much of a leftist as John Kerry in his own way. I certainly don´t support that any more than I support slaughter of innocents. But, #65´s good post reminded me of stories I read and heard back in the day. I hope someone with far more knowledge than my observations will comment.

Via the Daily Caller, an elegant opening statement from today’s House Rules Committee hearing on Boehner’s separation-of-powers lawsuit. You’ve heard him make this argument before but he’s getting more apocalyptic with each appearance before Congress — and who can blame him? The last time he testified, Obama wasn’t babbling to activists about amnestizing five million illegals with a stroke of his pen. Today Turley calls O’s rhetoric about unilateral action “extreme” and warns the committee that Congress will effectively self-destruct if the executive is allowed to do what he wants whenever there’s gridlock. After all, in a system of limited

LOS ANGELES--First Lady Michelle Obama and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti spoke to a crowd of business owners and civil activists about the issue of veteran homelessness at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Wednesday morning. "We are here today to find concrete opportunities, to get past the rhetoric to get results," Garcetti said in his introductory remarks. "L.A. is a national leader in so many ways: we´ve got the most trade coming through our ports, the most visitors... but we´re also a leader in some bad ways.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

McAllen, TX -Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, freed after years of captivity in Afghanistan and returned to active duty this week, has retained an attorney — a military law expert from Yale. Eugene Fidell, who teaches military justice at Yale Law School, told the Los Angeles Times that he has been representing Bergdahl for about a week and is working pro bono. Fidell said he has received a variety of reactions to his decision to work with Bergdahl. "There are people who harbor ill will toward my client," Fidell said, but at the same time he has received emails "wishing my client

Pentagon Loses Many Cars

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

Attorneys allied with Democrats in opposing the suit said it´s the GOP that´s going too far by trying to resolve a political dispute by giving the question to the courts to decide. The lawyers appeared Wednesday before the House Rules Committee, which is considering legislation authorizing the House to file the lawsuit.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
