“Bob Kerrey will run!”
That quote comes from a Tweet from MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. It makes sense that Kerrey would let the news slip to the national press instead of local press, seeing as Kerrey has not lived in Nebraska for the past 11 years.
O’Donnell goes on to Tweet…
Bob Kerrey is in Nebraska now ready to discuss plans with local media. He will run.
We noted earlier how strange it seemed that Kerrey registered to vote with his sister’s home address. We are told that that is most likely legal, for reasons we can discuss at a later time.
Once a SEAL, always a SEAL, apparently. Ask Chuck Hassebrook, now bleeding out from the knife he just took in the back. #NESEN #Kerrey #fb
Want to know how Paul Johnson will try to sell Kerrey? Gee, is that Kerrey’s Navy SEAL photo on the Kerrey2012.com?
And the quote: “I hope you will join me on this mission.”
Really? That’s what you’re going with, huh? Interesting.
Hey, it is almost as if it is 1982 all over again! Tabula rasa.
And thus Team Kerrey goes with the olllllllld Kerrey logo as well:
Wonder if Kerrey will trot out Debra Winger again, just for old time’s sake.
Report is that Kerrey emailed — EMAILED — an “apology” to NU Regent Chuck Hassebrook, who quit his regent gig to run for Senate based on Kerrey’s promise that he was out of the race.
What Bob? A direct Twitter Direct Message wasn’t available?
@Vote4Chuck Srry bout lying to you b4. Gd lck on the campaign. #suxtobeyou
Your move, Charley Thone. #NESEN
And from the leader of the ultra libs on the web:
So Kerrey has THAT going for him, at least.
Nebraska Right to Life (which supported Ben Nelson in 2006) stated that they will, “vigorously oppose Bob Kerrey’s candidacy for the U.S. Senate,” stating…
During his two terms in the U.S. Senate (1989-2000), Kerrey cast three votes in accord with NRLC’s positions, while he voted against NRLC 70 times, for a career Senate score of 4% (four percent).
Kerrey voted against the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act five times, and for NRLC-scored pro-abortion amendments to the PBABA twice.
In 1999, he voted for the Harkin Amendment to endorse Roe v. Wade (10/21/99).
Deena Winter at Watchdog spoke to Chuck Hassebrook. She confirms that Kerrey..
- Has not called Chuck Hassebrook
- Only e-mailed Hassebrook
- Did not tell Hassebrook that he was running for Senate
- Did not apologize to Hassebrook for going back on his word
So essentially Kerrey kicked Hassebrook in the nuts and told him “sucks to be you.”
Bob Kerrey 2012 everyone!
Kerrey tells Joe Jordan that he does “not feel personally responsible (to Chuck Hassebrook) for the decision that he made.”
Of course, Hassebrook made that decision — to quit his job as Regent and run for Senate — based on Kerrey TELLING HIM that he was not going to run. Just like Bob Kerrey made his deal with Senator Harry Reid before he decided to run.
We hope Bob Kerrey would be “an adult” if Reid backed out of his deal with Kerrey. But in any case, if elected, any Senator should know that Bob Kerrey may change his mind on a deal if Kerrey’s wife tells him to.
We are waiting to hear from Chuck Hassebrook on whether he still believes that Kerrey is a “man of integrity”.
We will continue to update…
