Kerry froze, too

Some compassionate Democrats now realize that they have been deceived by Moore’s “documentary,” especially by the “unforgettable picture” of President Bush in the school classroom “frozen … unable to respond.”

Even Senator John Kerry used Moore’s line to criticize the president. Now compare Bush’s behavior with Kerry’s.

On Larry King’s show of July 8, when asked where he was on that tragic day, Senator Kerry said: “I was in the Capitol in Tom Daschle’s office with Sen. Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid. We watched the second plane come in to the building … and we just realized nobody could think” (what to do).

Kerry admits that he and his fellow senators sat there frozen and indecisive for 34 minutes. Michael Moore should have filmed this sorrowful scene! It would be worthy of 5,000 words.

By his admission, Senator Kerry shows what a hypocrite he is. It took him five times longer realizing “nobody could think.” For more information on 9/11, go to to read “Fifty-nine Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11.”
