Can You Imagine If He Were President?

Bush is not a great President. That’s an extreme understatement. But can you imagine if John Kerry had won the White House, instead? We’d have a lot of the Bush problems, plus so many more.
Take John Kerry’s latest project. He’s holding hearings over the very important issue of whether or not Major League Baseball can give DirecTV the exclusive contract to broadcast baseball games not on local stations. Kerry wants to see other cable and satellite providers (who likely donated campaign money to his coffers) to also carry the package. More from USA Today’s “Sports on TV” column:

Tax dollars at work:

At a U.S. Senate committee hearing Tuesday over the future of Major League Baseball’s Extra Innings TV package, the parties involved repeated the same positions they’ve taken for weeks. At issue is whether satellite TV provider DirecTV will exclusively get the package that allows fans to pay to see games not being shown on their local stations. MLB says other cable or satellite providers can carry the package if they match what DirecTV will pay. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., who wants MLB to extend its March 31 deadline for other providers to match DirecTV’s terms, repeated Tuesday that DirecTV getting exclusivity is “not fair.”

A lot of things are “not fair.” But like this matter, they aren’t the business of the U.S. Senate or the government.
So glad Senator Kerry has his attention focused on the important issues of the day. On the other hand, we should be grateful, he’s sidetracked with baseball broadcasts, and not focusing on the rest of the country.

There must be something in the water in Mass.

I wonder if his bulldog (sorry to insult bulldogs) of a wife’s holdings in Heinz and it’s revenue from sports related business dealings should stop Mr. Kerry from opening his mouth in this arena (pun totally intended).

Frankenkerry should run for the Presidency of Transylvania. He’ll win by a landslide.

Consider this a blessing….as long as his sticking his prodigious chin into baseball’s business, the less time he will have to continue his traitors betrayal of America’s troops.

I’m no John Kerry supporter but I think that you people are way too hard on the poor man.
The reason he acts the way he does, and the fact that he can never prioritize effectively stems way back to that day whilst in Viet Nam when he shot a grain of rice into his ass in order to get out of ‘Nam early and abandon his fellow Swiftboaters. That grain of rice narrowly missed his brain cell, but still had an effect on it.
So, please, all of you racist, bigoted, intolerant, right-wing nut jobs…go easy on the mentally handicapped. You uncaring bastards!

I don’t know why anyone is paying attention to this a**!
But, he is a powerful a** and I guess we have too. It’s so unpleasant.

Deb you typed: Bush is not a great President. That’s an extreme understatement. But can you imagine if John Kerry had won the White House, instead? We’d have a lot of the Bush problems, plus so many more.
you know what they have in common? They’re both Boneesmen from Yale. Both guys were tapped to beat off in a coffin and tell their sexcapades and here is an initiation:
Oh and here is the list of Bonesmen, which includes Bush, Kerry, cheney’s uncle, the head of the CIA and non-WASPs too. They tapped Jews and Asians.
Yeah, I know you know I don’t believe in that Jesus bullshit but they did a good job on gathering up the names.
That’s what they have in common. They don’t gove a shit about us and even if Kerry won, we’d still be in Iraq and Afghanistan losing. It’s up to their higher ups in S&Bs to tell them to stop the war.
