What the hell does that even mean?

John Kerry (and Edwards) decided to make a completely classless move and start a speech just minutes after Bush was finished speaking. He is cratering.

"And now that the President is Finally finished his speech, I have 5 words for America, 'This is your wake up call.'"

Ain't that six words?

oooooh I might vote for him now.

I'm not sure what is more pathetic... That line or that the crowd cheered it.

Update I'm going to live blog it.

4 words on Bush speech: "All Hat No Cattle." Rebut: All Hat No Cambodia

They are blowing it. Both Senators are viscerally angry. That might fire the base but it looks anything but Presidential.

Now Kerry is taking off after Bush and Cheney BIG TIME. "5 deferments vs 2 tours of Duty" (4 months is 2 tours of duty? -ed)

Now he's reciting the "Bush Lied, People Died" mantra.

HOLY CRAP: He just went Michael Moore.. Accusing Bush (or I guess Cheney) of being on the Haliburton payroll!

Just accused Bush of letting Saudi Royal family controlling oil prices.

Now he says 'vote for me because Obama gave a good speech.'

He's just one aaaaarghhh away from being Howard Dean. (ok maybe that was overstated but not by much)

WOW: He just promised to make "make the workplace fair again" What does that mean?

Talk about peddling fear! If you don't vote for me, your kids will get sick and die! (paraphrased of course)

DAMN MSNBC pulled it! I so wish that had been in prime time. It was horrible.

No prepared remarks, kept repeating himself, angry, frothing at the mouth.

I've knocked this man as being an undisciplined campaigner. What an understatement. He came out shrill and whiney. Speaking off the cuff and making a jackass out of himself. He needs handlers! Soon.

Anyone wanting to fisk it could have a field day. He lied dozens of times.

heh- MSNBC left Chris Matthew's mic open after he walked off the set and we got to hear him tell the producers he was headed for the bathroom. Opps

Another update: Many people have said he sounded drunk... I don't completely disagree that he sounded drunk. I seriously doubt he was obviously... Which might make it worse. At least drunk he would have had an excuse.

Another: The ever liberal New York Times had a glowing review of the speech. I have to wonder if they heard it!

Must say, not impressed at all with their rebuttal. Really didn't say anything we haven't heard, and he's still banging on about that service. Apparently he hasn't figured out that its not going to clinch much for him.

Oh, also forgot about the disingenuous bit about the Saudis. EVERY president has allowed the Saudi royal family to set oil prices because.... THEY SIT ON THE OIL SWING. When you sit on a huge percentage of a commodity you have undue influence on supply since its supply and demand that set prices.

The ironic thing is the only way he would be able to remove the Saudi royal family's influence on oil prices would be to [dum dum DUM....] remove the Saudi royal family. I'd love for someone to press him about just how he would achieve this goal.

First time to post on here ... Tonight's craven attempt to focus attention on Sen. Horse Face shows how desperate they are. When you couple that with the fact that their Presidential nominee has lowered himself to going after the opponent's Vice Presidential nominee, it makes it even more clear how wonderful he is as a nominee. Am I the only one that thinks that there were at least 7-10 Republicans giving speeches this week that could step into the election tomorrow and still beat those jokers. I would like to go on record to thank Gov. Yeah for allowing our wonderful President Bush to run against such a putz.

10 is a stretch, but I think I can name 6. So no, you're not the only one. I really don't think Kerry wants to make Vietnam more of an issue, nor does he want to do that "misled into Iraq" thing when he voted for it.

No one has yet pointed out that this is another flip flop. It was just last week he was cornered into saying that even with what we know now, he would have gone to war. So, is he saying he too would have misled the nation? Or, flipping his Iraq position - yet, again?

Fox had about a minute of the speech in a split screen while Greta was on and LMAO she was looking at her monitor and you could tell she was thinking - What is this guy NUTZ?? Fox killed the feed and I scanned the tube to see if any network was so low as to carry it - I mean, come on - the last night of the opposition convention? What a lack of class. Sure enough, leave it to MSLSD to not be able to restrain their patisanship. My bet is they pulled it because the guy was clearly in meltdown ... it was embarassing. I'm thinking Chris Mouthews went to the john to puke ... or he thought he saw Zell coming from around the corner with a couple of flintlock pistols. But, that's just me.

spaceghost:

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I thought it would be of interest. I am a reporter for a newspaper in West Virginia and Jim Rassman was here Thursday. It was the typical rah-rah "Kerry's the man, Bush is a liar, Kove is the Anti-Christ" stuff, but he said something that sparked my interest. He was talking about his dealings with Kerry in Vietnam and told a story about finding a stash of rice and munitions. After talking about coming under fire, and his Chinese guy getting blown to bits, he said the group was going to destroy the rice. But, after tossing his grenade, Kerry didn't duck fast enough and caught a full load of rice in the ass. "It was the funniest thing I've ever seen and I'll never forget it," Rassman said. "And I'll never let him forget it." To me, this sounds suspiciously like the incident that some Swift Boat folks have been using to demonstrate that Kerry's second Purple Heart was not the result of enemy action (i.e. enemy fire) but "self-inflicted," even if it wasn't intentional. I found it very interesting that one of Kerry's staunchest supporters (registered GOP and according to him "the first time I've ever been involved in politics and the first time I've ever donated to a candidate") may have inadvertantly admitted that the other SWB vets might just know what they're talking about.

Felix:

I watched Bush's acceptance speech and the beginning of Kerry's rebuttal.

What struck me even more than the negative tone of both Kerry and Edwards was the visual contrast. Bush at the RNC looked presidential. Kerry looked like he was staying at a KOA campground.

Let me get this right.... (Below threshold)
J_Crater:

Let me get this right.

Kerry says he has doubts about the Vietnam war but volunteers to go. He shoots "gooks" and "slopes", destroys villages, and gets medals, while possibly exaggerating. He comes home to the US and says, in front of a Senate committee, he and others participated in an immoral war and committed war crimes. Now, Kerry is running around touting his medals he got for his self admitted war crimes, saying that this qualifies him to be President of the United States.

To make matters worse, Kerry has the balls to say that Bush who served in TANG and Cheney who had 5 deferments are the bad guys. Not that may years ago anti-war, loving folks would have said that Bush and Cheney were the good guys because they didn't go to this immoral war, by all means necessary.

KJC:

The Kedwards slapped together speech was a disgrace. While Edwards was speaking, Kerry was standing behind him swaying a bit and occasionally digging his finger in his ear, touching his face, etc.

Then the garbage, some of it somewhat slurred, that emanated from Kerry's mouth was pathetic. Someone on another blog commented that Kerry looks like a dead tree. I'll add to that and say he sounds like one too.

I am also sick of Edwards' insta-grin fake smile. Watch him: as soon as he realizes the camera is on him, instant forced and phony cover-girl smile.

Dan:

As regards Bush's tax cuts and the wealthy, blah blah blah. What they don't tell you is that the cuts ELIMINATED the tax burden for almost 8 million low income families. The left takes advantage of that population being removed from the sample (because they now pay 0 tax, they no longer "count" feh!) to present a skewed number. The link below details the real and VERY EQUITABLE impact of the cuts, as regards lower income households.

Beancounter, Kerry is going to get more of us killed.
Example, at the Dems convention, Kerry told us that he learned on the swift boat to turn into the attact. Yet when the swift boat boys go after him, what does he do? He threatens to sue the TV stations that were running the ads. He tries to get the publisher to stop publishing the book. And amusingly, he asked Geo. W Bush to "tell them to stop". To this day has he not even addressed anything that SBVT has charged. In short he's done everything but take it to the SBVT.
Forget what he said at the Dems covention. Is this how he's going to take it to the terrorist?
Kerry needs to be crushed. To tell the world and the Islamist, that if they bring to the US, what happened in Russia this week, we will hunt them down and treat them like the rabid dogs they are.
