Durbin Acted Like & Sounded Like Kerry From 1971

From Hugh Hewitt's radio show with guest Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard, what I think was the highlight of the discussion (via Radio Blogger):

Hewitt & Kristol

BK: You know what struck me, listening to Durbin? He reminded me not of some...Don Rumsfeld compared it to Jane Fonda. I don't think that's quite right. He reminded me of John Kerry, actually in 1971.

HH: Yup.

BK: John Kerry came back and attacked the soldiers, and said they were doing terrible things, launched his political career in the Democratic Party at that time, and now we have Dick Durbin, a sitting Senator, really in a similar way, really, slandering American soldiers. And he was there at the event with Howard Dean last night, and got plenty of applause. And he's going to stay as whip, and I guess the Democrats are comfortable with him, as a leading spokesman for their party.

My points repeatedly about the state of the current democratic party. The are haunted by the ghost of Vietnam which leads to their attacks on our military and our country and putting the interest of the enemy over our own. It's not an isolated incident, it's a major theme of the party. It's bread and butter DNC. We see it in the top leadership of the democratic party in Durbin, Pelosi, Reid, Dean, and countless others speech and actions. We see it in the extremist fringe groups of the party, and we see it unfortunately now in the DNC rank in file. The anti military venom continues to come, from the next, then the next, and then the next. A steady and repulsive flow of "we hate the military". Sad................

The Kerry - Durbin analogy is a perfect one I think. Kerry came back and called his fellow soldiers "war criminals" and was embraced by the democratic party. He became a "rock star" in his party and they ate up his anti-America anti-military propaganda. Just like they ate up Durbin calling our military heroes, Nazis, keepers of the gulag, and enforcers of Pol Pot.....................................................
