This just in from CNN, a leading Democratic Party news organizations:
John Kerry, the Democratic Party's 2004 nominee for president, took aim at Bill Clinton Friday, telling the National Journal the former president does "not have a license to abuse the truth."Sen. Kerry's right at least as far as most of the public goes.
The Massachusetts senator, who endorsed Barack Obama's White House bid earlier this month, said Clinton's criticisms of the Illinois senator have been "over the top," and suggested the former president is getting "frantic."
Targeting Clinton's recent spate of attacks on Obama, Kerry said, "I think you had an abuse of the truth, is what happened. …I mean, being an ex-president does not give you license to abuse the truth, and I think that over the last days it's been over the top.
"I think it's very unfortunate, but I think the voters can see through that," Kerry added. "When somebody's coming on strong and they are growing, people get a little frantic, and I think people have seen this sort of franticness in the air, if you will." …
Most people know the former President has lied often. ("I never ever had sex with that woman, Ms. Lewisnsky" is only the best known of his lies. )
I'm glad Kerry's said what he said, but his announcement’s at least 10 years late.
That reminds me: has Kerry set a new date for the public release of all his Navy records?
Didn't he first promise to do that about 5 years ago?
Or was that when he said he was going to prove he spent Christmas in Cambodia?
Isn't it tough to keep up with people like Kerry and Bill Clinton?
