Can’t depend on Kerry

John Kerry insists a “global test” must be passed before he, as commander in chief, would take action to protect the U.S. Apparently, Mr. Kerry has forgotten that in the ’91 Gulf War when France, Germany, Saudi Arabia, etc., all supported military action. He, as senator, voted against it! (Maybe he meant a “galaxy test” since Jupiter and Mars did not participate?)

Kerry boasts he can do better at building a coalition. He’s referred to the coalition already in place as the “coalition of the coerced and bribed.” (C’mon ” what country would want to join a U.S. led coalition under Kerry’s “label”?)

Kerry says he can bring about better relations between the U.S. and leaders of other countries. Given the opportunity to prove it recently after Iraqi Prime Minister Allawi’s speech before Congress, he promptly called this courageous man a “puppet” and in cahoots with Bush in misleading the American public. (Hardly the way to win friends and influence people!)

Like shifting sand. The man is too changeable to be trusted with the presidency ” especially a man who betrayed his fellow soldiers and was applauded, even awarded, by the enemy for his stance during Vietnam.
