I frankly don't care. I mean, this issue of whether Kerry deserved a purple heart hardly matters I think...I don't think Kerry himself gets to "apply" to have a purple heart, aren't they awarded based on someone higher-up?
If that's the case then whether Kerry deserved it or not, him getting one for that injury wasn't necessarily his decision. And thus, we can't "blame" him for getting a purple heart he didn't deserve.
Let me ask you this:
Kerry fought bravely in that war. So maybe he got one purple heart he didn't deserve, but does that make him somehow less of a person? I don't see one reason, whatsoever, why this issue makes Kerry less desirable or trustworthy as a leader. This is just the GOP's attempt to make an issue where none exists.
If you want to have a reason to not trust Kerry, find a better reason. And MD
-90 that isn't necessarily aimed at you, I'm just saying, I dont see why this should make you uneasy about Kerry whatsoever.
