The War on Terror might be important to you and me but Democratic Candidate John Kerry, just hasn't had time to worry his little head over it.
Kerry's sole talking point is that Bush has mismanaged the war on terror and that as a Vietnam Vet, he could do better. If it is so important that he be elected to run the war, shouldn't he at least go to the briefings?
CNN's Larry King Live
LARRY KING: News of the day, Tom Ridge warned today about al Qaeda plans of a large-scale attack on the United States. Didn't increase the -- you see any politics in this? What's your reaction?
JOHN KERRY: Well, I haven't been briefed yet, Larry. They have offered to brief me. I just haven't had time.
I guess no foreign leaders were going to be there.
What this really shows again(!) is what a horrible campaigner Kerry is. Who says things like this during a campaign? He broke a cardinal rule of candidates... NEVER VOLUNTEER INFORMATION.
Larry King did not ask him why he had not gone. Volunteering an excuse is asinine. Nobody running for dog catcher makes this mistake.
He made the same mistake when he said life began at conception but he did not learn his lesson then. The Dems truly picked a horrible campaigner.
Fedora tip to Drudge
UPDATE: I seem to have ruffled a few feathers among some liberals because I did not include this part of the the interview.
Yes gentlemen, you have proven beyond a doubt that Kerry is a moron and Larry King is a hopeless sycophant. Congratulations. King heard what Kerry said and tried 3 times to get him out the whole he dug. If that had been a Republican, King would have asked why he had not received the briefing.
KING: When do you -- ...
KERRY: (interrupts, off topic)
KING: When do you -- when do you get your briefing?
KERRY: We're arranging it. It's at the end of the week I'll get it.
KING: Should be pretty soon.
KERRY: I think it's tomorrow or the next day.
KING: And as for the vice president, he gets one, as well, right?
So again, you guys are right, Kerry is a piss poor campaigner and King tried to save Kerry from himself.
Now- Don't you just feel better about the whole event?
