lgf: Kerry Bashes Bush in Baghdad

lgf: Kerry Bashes Bush in Baghdad

Visiting with U.S. troops in Baghdad on Thursday, failed presidential candidate John Kerry trashed Commander-in-chief George Bush for making “horrendous judgments” and “unbelievable blunders” that have undermined the war effort.

In a series of demoralizing comments first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, the defeated Democrat griped, “What is sad about what’s happening here now is that so much of it is a process of catching up from the enormous miscalculations and wrong judgments made in the beginning.”

Kerry said that because of the Bush administration’s mistakes, “the job has been made enormously harder.”

Among the errors cited by the disgruntled Democrat: the decision by former U.S. occupation leader Paul Bremer’s to disband the Iraqi army and purge the government of former members of Hussein’s Baath Party.

Both moves were have fueled the Sunni insurgency, he claimed, lamenting, “Mistakes have been made.”

Then, perhaps sensing he’d gone too far, the 2008 White House hopeful cut short the Bush-bashing, saying, “Now, it’s a different time and different set of judgments that have to be made. I’m here to make judgments about what moves are available to us.”

Senator, you need to get over it!
