Ok Bill I already know your answer but try to be fair here... during the democratic primaries I liked Kerry and as long as Dean was defeated I was fine with whoever came out even though General Clark was a little loopy. even up until around january I liked Kerry, I thought I could deal with him as President. But something happened and now I can not stand the guy and I really am not looking forward to a Kerry presidency. Here's why: - He was not anti-war before, he said the world is better off with Saddam, he voted for the war and then said he would do it again as recently as december 2003. Now he is the big anti-war candidate. His whole campaign now seems to be based around "the wrong war at the wrong time". He has done a complete 180 and no one can deny this (superdave) if you look at his various quotes on Iraq. This means he went anti-war for one reason: the polls. I can't respect a president who would be so wishy washy on something as important as a war or the 'war on terror'. Now I respect the anti-war sentiment to a degree but I don't respect someone who has no resolve. - He is now blaming every problem under the sun on President Bush. Flu vaccine shortage? Bush's fault. Job outsourcing? Bush's fault (although I agree that Bush has not done enough to stop this but I don't know what the answer is and Kerry DOES NOT either and where is Kerry's stance on NAFTA? IS THAT SOMETHING HE IS TALKING ABOUT AT his meetings with Unions?) Hatian unrest? Bush's fault (even though Clinton's botched effort to remove Raoul Cedras goes unmentioned by Kerry which still has ramifications today ). It's getting tiring and it looks desperate when Kerry blames bad weather or a poor golf game on Bush. - The debates. While Kerry overall did better than Bush, the alarming number of statistics that he apparently just made up, is kind of scarey. Yes it appears not all of Bush's numbers were correct either but Kerry's list of "factual errors" heavily outweight the truths he tried to spell out in numbers. This is kind of worrisome to think that a guy can just go up and there and make up statistics when he knows a large portion of the Country is watching. - He nows feel's 'france, germany and russia' now represent the international community and has offended Iraq's PM and Poland's president directly and Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, England, etc indirectly by calling them the coalition of the bribed. So apparently Kerry is willing to trade in good standing with historic allies such as the UK and Poland for historically anti-American nations like France - the country that helped out the U.S.'s enemy Saddam Hussein. What is Kerry's stance on France's role in funding Saddam Hussein with what now looks like illegal oil deals? What is Kerry's opinion of the UN helping Saddam steal from the oil for food program? Apparently these pesky little issues doesn't bother him as long as we co-operate with the "international community". And I would like to hear John Kerry tell Kofi not to publicly state the war in Iraq is "illegal" while his own people are funding money to terrorists. Anyone can see this is the best time to say "******** you" to the UN, but why is Kerry talking about better relations with countries that aid our enemies? - Kerry seems like anything is fair game when he speaks, whether he is calling Allawi a liar or mentioning Mary Cheney.....this guy has crossed the line a few times now when he speaks but apparently he will say anything regardless of how tasteless it is just to get votes. I think that Kerry underneath it all is probably closer in opinion to President Bush on several opinions. However because the polls weren't kind to him when he was agreeing with Bush on everything, he has now turned into an absolute ********ing dick. IS Kerry just playing fair politics or is he playing dirty tricks to try and get votes?
