    Every day I read another story about how this guy has reversed decisions and changed his stance on major issues. He condems things that he has praised earlier. This mans record speaks for itself, and it's pitiful.

    Kerry Praised Clinton for Snubbing Iraq War Allies

    Likely Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry has repeatedly slammed President Bush for not getting the cooperation of European allies before attacking Iraq last year.

    But in 1997, Kerry praised President Clinton for preparing to attack Iraq by deploying ships, aircraft and troops over the objections of France and Russia.

    In a November 1997 audiotape broadcast by WABC Radio's Monica Crowley on Monday, Kerry painted Clinton as resolute for putting U.S. war plans against Baghdad in motion.

    "The president has, in effect, put military action on the table," he told CNN's "Crossfire."

    "Secretary Cohen canceled his trip, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff canceled a trip, troops are deployed, the aircraft carriers are being brandished. There's no misunderstanding here about where the United States is prepared to go," the Massachusetts Democrat assured.

    Kerry praised the Clinton White House for thumbing its nose at our European allies.

    "Clearly the allies may not like it," said the top Democrat, before suggesting that France and Russia were spineless.

    "Where's the backbone of Russia, where's the backbone of France, where are they in expressing their condemnation of such clearly illegal activity?" he railed.

    Kerry also praised the White House for giving the United Nations the brush-off.

    "The [Clinton] administration is leading. The administration is making it clear that they don't believe that they even need the U.N. Security Council to sign off on a material breach because the finding of material breach was made by [U.S. weapons inspector Richard] Butler."

    Kerry defended President Clinton's go-it-alone war plan as the best way to protect U.S. national security, telling "Crossfire," "I think the United States has always reserved the right and will reserve the right to act in its best interests."

    Said WABC's Crowley after airing the revealing tape, "It's obvious that the real reason Kerry was for military action last time around in 1997 and not now is because the last time it was a Democratic president thinking about doing it."

    Why do you think alot of liberals are scared? They realize they just nominated a guy that has serious problems. They are about ready to implode and i think November of 2004 will see it happen.

    My only hope is that the extreme left doesnt freak out so much about Bush winning that they decide to start getting militant. we could have some serious problems then.

    Kerry 48%, Bush 44%.

    That's from likely voters with Nader included as a candidate. Without Nader, the spread is 9%. Who did you say was running scared?

    And I can give you another poll right now that has Bush in the lead.

    Kerry has been campaigning for months on end. GW has been campaigning via TV ads for one week!

    Your running with a loser, and I mean that 2 ways.

    I have no doubt there is some poll that reflects those numbers, please include a link for such information, otherwise it really doesn't hold much weight.

    Here you go:

    The Republican incumbent had 46 percent support, Democrat Kerry had 45 percent and Nader, the 2000 Green Party candidate who entered the race last month, was at 6 percent in the survey conducted for the AP by Ipsos-Public Affairs.

    These polls are as useless as John Kerry.
