Carol Platt Liebau: The Cultural Chasm

The Cultural Chasm

If there was any doubt about the cultural differences between Democrats and Republicans when it comes to the military, Senator John Kerry has illuminated them brightly enough for everyone in America to see.

Yesterday, here in Pasadena (in an appearance that created little local interest):

Kerry students that if they were able to navigate the education system "and make an effort to be smart" they could "do well" but, he told them, "If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

Here's the video.

And there it is in a nutshell: John Kerry believes that if you're smart and successful, you "do well." If you're stupid and a failure, "you get stuck in Iraq." Is there any doubt that a fair number of his Democratic colleagues feel the same way?

Of course, Kerry is refusing to apologize, and in his trademarked pompous formulation -- "I apologize to no one."

It's instructive to know exactly how the man the Democrats hoped would be President looks on the brave men and women who are both defending our country, fighting Islamofascists, and trying to secure a future of freedom for the Iraqis.

If only the ketchup lady would cut off his allowance we'd be rid of this dolt.

FDR was not perfect but he did fight Hitler and Tojo. And again with Truman and Korea and Stalin.

What's wrong with us, criticizing John Kerry?

DON'T WE KNOW WHO HE IS?
