As a reminder:
Sen. John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate on Friday charged that critics are trying to “swiftboat” President Obama with false and “ridiculous” claims and that Mitt Romney is a foreign policy rookie who embarrassed himself during a recent trip to London.
In a letter to Obama’s supporters, he railed on the charges Obama has been hit with, including those from the so-called “birthers.”
The attacks, he said, “remind me all too well of the notorious ‘Swift Boat’ attacks I faced in the 2004 campaign.” He was referencing devastating charges from fellow Vietnam War veterans questioning his service.
In the note, he also slapped Romney for being a foreign policy novice and potential presidential disaster.
