    OK So let me get on top of things...

    Kerry votes for the war
    Kerry votes against funding the war (But after he votes FOR it)
    Kerry says it was the right thing
    Kerry says anyone who thinks America is not safer w/o Saddam does not have the judgement to be prez
    Kerry says he would have voted for the war even knowing what we know today
    Kerry says he would get US soldiers out of Iraq in 4 years
    Kerry says it was the wrong war at the wrong time
    Kerry says ousting Saddam was wrong

    Is that it? I think I mighta missed something...

    ya know when Rudy gave his speach at the RNC and said "At this rate, [Kerry] has time to change positions 4 or 5 more times!" ?

    I kinda thought he was joking. :slap:

    This should be the next RNC commercial.

    Clip #1: Kerry says anyone who thinks America is not safer without Saddam does not have the judgement to be president.

    Clip #2: Kerry says he would not have overthrown Saddam Hussein had he been in the White House.

    Guaranteed 5 more points for Bush.

    Holy smoke screen! No doubt Kerry's handlers think they've seen something in the poll data that justifies the flip-flop. They're trying to make voters forget he voted for funding the war. The Kerry campaign is looking more desperate everyday. Kerry should remember he is running in the United States, not France.

    I find it hilarious how he Kerry says that he will repair relationships with US allies, and then he says things like this:

    That's nice. Call the coalition phony because they didn't send thousands and thousands of troops. I'm sure the people there really like hearing that the coalition that they are a part of is phony.

    When they listed the coalition members, they included Costa Rica as part of the "coalition", despite the fact that a) Costa Rica has no standing army to contribute troops to the cause and b) they have sent no money whatsoever to the cause. When a country merely backs the notion of going to war but not the war itself, I don't think its fair to call them part of the coalition. In fact, I'm pretty sure that Costa Rica asked for its name to be 'crossed off the list' recently. This is the type of phoniness that he was refering to.

    Kerry wasn't trying to disparage the countries that are doing what they can, he was trying to point out that many of our closest historical allies, countries with the economic and military capability to make a significant contribution to the war effort, were systematically alienated from the effort. It would be a boon to the United States to bring back some of our troops that are shouldering the vast majority of the combat duty, and to start paying less of the total cost of war. There's a thread about teachers who are paying for their students school supplies out of their own pockets on this board, one of the immediate benefits that could be reaped from not having to write all the checks, not to mention fill all the body bags.

    Then again, Kerry will probably be praising Costa Rica's valient efforts in 10...9...8....

    What do you think the chances are that France, Germany, Spain or any other traditional ally will send money or troops no matter who asks them?
