Meet the Press

Sunday, January 30th
Exclusive! Senator John Kerry, D-MA

In his first television interview since the presidential election, Sen. John F. Kerry (D-MA) will appear live on "Meet the Press with Tim Russert" this Sunday, January 30, 2005.

The exclusive interview will cover a wide range of topics including the day's historic elections in Iraq, the senator's own trip to the region, his view on Bush's second term agenda, the Democratic Party, Social Security and his plans for his own political future.

Sen. Kerry's last "Meet the Press" appearance on April 18, 2004, came thirty-three years after his very first appearance on the program as a spokesman for Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Earlier in the campaign cycle, Sen. Kerry announced his intentions to run for the Presidential nomination on "Meet the Press" on December 1, 2002.

Plus, we will have the very latest on Sunday's elections in Iraq with NBC's Brian Williams live from Baghdad.

This was a very good interview. Again, Senator Kerry did us proud. However, I am interested in seeing how the media will decide portray the interview, if they do not choose to ignore it entirely.

I really hope some of the topics covered in the interview are followed up on, particularly the interest the senator expressed in having the military records of some of the Swift Boat Veterans Against Kerry made public as well as his own. I'd like to see that myself. From what I've read, many of these guys should not be in the position of "casting stones."

I thought the same thing about the Swifties... where's their records?

I don't care so much about the records of the Swift Boat Liars. These people are of little consequence. The person whose full records I would like to see released is George Bush.

Unfortunately, with all the noise about the memos, all the other evidence about Bush's National Guard record has been ignored. This is still a significant story.

The transcript of the interview is now available at the Kerry 2004 Reference Library:

I got the impression that JK was referring to "all" their records, meaning Corsi, Bush et al.

They were never really clear as to who they were talking about.

Bush is the only one where we know there are irregularities in the record, as well as the only one where it matters.

We aleady know the Swifties are liers. We have nothing yet to suggest there are irregularities in their records, and even if there is, it wouldn't lower my opinion of them any more.
