This is by far one of the best criticisms of [myself] I've ever read. It shows that [I am] without a point other than to be against [Kerry]. [I (Scott) go] in so many different directions in [my] attempt to get [Kerry] that [I] contradicts [my]self and in the end [have] nothing to say.
Except that the things Moore says against Bush are basically all true.
As opposed to...
"There's no doubt in my mind that Kerry stretched the truth wrt to the medals. I can't prove it but his actions after the war are clear." - Scott
This is not a lie, but is an attempt at presenting opinion as fact.
"Kerry testified to things that he did not have first hand knowledge of and pushed beyond being colorful." - Scott
This is a lie, because it's been proven over and over again that Kerry presented the testimony of others, and did not falsely testify to anything himself.
"You'd have to be a moran to vote for Kerry." - Scott
That's certainly more intelligent than anything Moore has to say...
"What? Bush avoided serving in Vietnam and Kerry tried to avoid serving in Vietnam but couldn't?" - Scott
This is one of the most idiotic statements I've ever seen. Kerry tried to avoid serving by enlisting voluntarily?
"He requested swift boat duty because at the time swift boats had easy duty and were not very involved in the war. He wanted to avoid the fighting." - Scott
Pure unsubstantiated opinion presented as fact.
"Kerry just want [sic] to cut and run."
Again. Pure conjecture. I've never seen Michael Moore make any unsubstantiated predictions like this.
Anyway, I could go on and on, and while Scott keeps spewing off his anti-Kerry half-truths and lies, he criticizes Moore for doing much less, but in a more public forum.
Practice what you preach.
