Stop The Presses!

John Kerry (apparently) has answered a question with (now get this) an actual answer:

GRAND CANYON, Ariz. (Reuters) - Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry said on Monday he would have voted for the congressional resolution authorizing force against Iraq even if he had known then no weapons of mass destruction would be found.
Totally aside from the shock I felt upon reading a straight answer from Mr. F-ing Kerry-Heinz, I was also amazed to see this answer not at the top of the NYT's Op/Ed page deriding him for coming out in favor of just exactly what our President has constantly (and, might I add, consistently) defended.

How about this:

Speaking to reporters from the Powell's Landing on the rim of the Grand Canyon above a mile-deep drop, Kerry also said reducing U.S. troops in Iraq significantly by next August was "an appropriate goal."

"My goal, my diplomacy, my statesmanship is to get our troops reduced in number and I believe if you do the statesmanship properly, I believe if you do the kind of alliance building that is available to us, that it's appropriate to have a goal of reducing the troops over that period of time," he said.
I have a serious problem with this statement. Simply put, the goal of our diplomacy should, and must, be a stable, safe, free and democratic Iraq. All other concerns in that area of the world must be subordinate to that one. For Kerry-Heinz to say that his goal, diplomacy and statesmanship are to reduce US troops in Iraq is not only stupid, it's dangerous (although it's technically impossible for his diplomacy and statesmanship to be anything...and they talk about Bush not knowing how to use the English language)).

I guess the message is coming through loud and clear to any even semi-regular readers of MuD&PHuD that I find Kerry's candidacy makes me extremely uncomfortable. I just find the guy to be completely without backbone. Any vote from him is a vote for the unknown given the simple fact that he waffles on essentially every issue.

So...the choice comes down to: On the Right hand a candidate who you know will follow through on his promises and, on the Left hand, one that you know will not.

As long as everyone understands those simple facts, we the American people will get exactly what we deserve...as usual.
