The Other Side of the Story: John Kerry and Martin Van Buren

Some may think that the 9/11 investigation is about George W. Bush and maybe Bill Clinton, but if you spend enough time on the internet you’ll find out that it’s really about LBJ, FDR, Woodrow Wilson, and every other goddamn no good Democratic President that there ever was or will be.

My friend Al at Brad DeLong has strengthened the Republicans’ case, pointing out that the Democrat Martin Van Buren’s performance in the 1837-1838 Caroline incident and Aroostook War on the Maine-New Brunswick border was disgraceful and cowardly.

Kerry should firmly dissociate himself from Van Buren’s costly do-nothing policy in the Aroostook Valley, and explain that as a New Democrat he has renounced the failed policies of the past. Unless he does so, he cannot expect the American People to elect him to the highest office in the land.
