This week, This Week, ran a segment on John Kerry’s life, and it made me curious about the 2004 controversy about his war legacy (a/k/a swiftboating.) I know that Democrats believe that swiftboating Kerry was unfair, undeserved, and unethical, but what do you, the opposition, think? Do you agree with Democrats’ claim that swiftboating Kerry was unfair, undeserved, and unethical?
BTW, I put “Republicans” in quotes, because I’m interested in what anyone who isn’t generally liberal in his/her politics thinks about this controversy, but I wanted to keep my thread title short and sweet. So, if you’re libertarian, an independent who trends conservative, a member of the Constitution Party, a member of some Tea Party, etc. (you get the idea, someone who Dems would generally think of as “not on their side”), go ahead and tell me what you think about Kerry and swiftboating, regardless of your official party identification. Also, please explain why you hold your opinion.
BTW (part 2), I don’t know enough about this to argue, so don’t think I’m ignoring you if I don’t respond. I was too young and distracted to pay attn. to this controversy when this particular shit hit the fan.
BTW (part3), “Democrats” needn’t fear that I’m going to necessarily agree with everything I read hereafter and attempt to “save me” from lies and the liars who lyingly lie them.
