    In my opinion, the politicians showing up cheapened what the vets were trying to do.
    Only problem is that a president from only one party ordered the barricades

    Greetings, EdwinWillers!
    Oh goodness - "Corn Pone Pie" is something I later became quite the expert at; it's now one of my more famous dishes - along with my "No Contest Red" chili.
    Who chimes "No Absolutes!" chimes absolutely.

    President Clinton would mingle with the enlisted without cameras. He was trying to earn the respect of the troops. (For obvious reasons.)

    G.W. Bush wouldn't allow pictures to be taken when meeting with the families of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

    Ronald Reagan never needed a photo-op with the troops. He loved the U.S. military and those who served. And the U.S. military already knew it and they loved him. Reagan didn't even have to earn the respect of those who were serving or had served, he already had their respect.

    It's such perfect teabaggery.

    Not a smart idea bringing up Kerry when it comes to military service. Receiving Purple Hearts for self inflicted wounds and not completing ones combat tour of duty and abandoning shipmates in combat doesn't go over well with veterans.

    Kerry doesn't want to get swift-boated again.

    We'll see. I think you underestimate him. He has a little more clout with conservatives than his dad did, keeps the hardcore supporters due to his last name, and his dad always polled well with independents and Democrats. In fact, his dad polled better against Pres Obama than any other Republican candidate in '12. He's as good or better a speaker as anyone the Dems can put forth, he doesn't have the neocon record to go after like 99% of Republicans, and he's more socially liberal than most Republicans. I think he and Senator Rubio are very serious threats to Democrats. Hillary can't hang with either of them in my opinion and we both know that Benghazi will blow up in her face. She's got nothing for that.

    Deflection -- we're talking about chickenhawk Cruz.

    But as to Kerry, don't try your silly Swiftboating around here. You'll fail. Most people here know how this ugly dishonest technique works (and here you are using it!)

    More prefect teabaggery!

    Back during that era, during the 7th and 8th grade all boys were required to take two years of shop classes and girls two years of home economics.

    You know what, she was right, most boys didn't know how to properly cook a hot dog.
    I took home ec in H.S., I was the only guy in the class. But I know how to cook, get stains out of clothes, sew & take care of kids which helped me as a dad...setting your 10th grade science teacher on fire lets you have a few free periods every day...
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    I think it's actually pretty smart to do what he's doing. He knows the Libertarian tag will open him up to running against Rubio in a national primary, thereby splitting the vote and allowing Hillary to runaway with it.

    You sound as pissed off as Kerry does about his military service and his actions after he abandoned his shipmates in Nam and as a leader of the VVAW while back stabbing the American soldiers while they were still on the battlefield.

    As the saying goes, no conservative has ever spat upon an American soldier.
