NEW YORK — John Kerry believes he lost to President Bush because of the video from Usama bin Laden that surfaced just days before the Nov. 2 presidential election. The Massachusetts senator told FOX News' senior correspondent Geraldo Rivera that he believes he lost because the tape may have scared the American electorate.

Rivera spoke to Kerry on Thursday as the senator and a slew of other notable names — including wife Teresa Heinz Kerry, actors Robin Williams and Morgan Freeman and comedian Chris Tucker — were in a holding room prior to the processional leading up to the formal opening of the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark.
Oh geez! First it was the Swift Boat vets, and now it's bin Laden's fault that Kerry lost the election? And truthfully, it sounds more to me like he's blaming the American people, whom he seems to feel ask, "How high?" when bin Laden says, "Jump!" Sorry, but that's just asinine. It appears losing the election is everybody's fault but his own. Isn't that convenient? Wonder if he wants some cheese to go with the whine?

Don't like Bush. Didn't vote for him, and was sorry to see him win again. But I am also suddenly relieved that Kerry didn't win. What a tool! I wonder if there will ever be an election during my lifetime where I will not have to hold my nose to vote? *sigh*
