Presidential candidate Senator John F Kerry boasts "I've met with foreign leaders who can't go out and say this publicly, but, boy, they look at you and say, 'You've got to win this. You've got to beat this guy [President Bush]. We need a new policy.' Things like that." and a citizen and Vietnam vet named Cedric Brown stood up at a town hall meeting Senator Kerry was holding and legitimately asked a question of one of the individuals who might be our president next January. How did the man who might be president someday treat a citizen of the United States and fellow Vietnam vet? With total arrogance. Listen to Senator Kerry's voice as he talks to this individual and tries to marginalize the man for asking him an uncomfortable question. Senator Kerry's voice literally drips with condescension. Senator Kerry obviously was not going to answer the citizen's question and proceeded to demean him for the benefit of his partisan audience who booed and jeered the man who dared to ask a question.
Of course Republican citizens should be upset that a potential president would treat another Republican in such a disrepectful manner when all the man was doing was asking a question. All Americans should take note of Senator Kerry's unpresidential behavior.
Update I: The foreign leaders supporting John Kerry's presidential bid are here. Several of these are probably the ones that Senator Kerry talked to.
Update II: The Senator Kerry Campaign is bidding up the Imaginary Foreign Leader Endorsement auction on eBay in order to claim at least one.
