Following Bush through the Minefield
Watching John Kerry this morning on a Sunday Morning talk show I realized why I don't like him. Primarily it stems from his willingness to use GOP rhetoric for his own purposes. Since I find that rhetoric full of dishonest language it makes what Kerry say sound dishonest as well. During his interview he pulled out the Bush strategy of making this election about security. He seems to be saying that he can "out Bush" Bush on security issues. But then he attacked Dean for the statement that we are no safer after the capture of Saddam. Which is true, as with many other "crazy" statements that Dean has made. This leads me to conclude that Kerry, like Bush would stand up and take credit for events that, while high profile, don't actually make Americans any safer. Kerry, like Bush would see our security as a series of political victories, full of swagger and good photo ops instead of focusing on results. In the business of providing security its about results. We should not forget, despite what Bush would have us believe, that Saddam was not responsible for 9-11. That event, and that specific threat is what this security debate is all about.
Politicians like Kerry think that by constantly tailoring their message to the prevailing wisdom, even if that "wisdom" is a result of GOP propaganda they can stay ahead. I want to see a politician that instead of playing along with the GOP memes with a careful dance, just shoots through the utter bullshit that it is. Right now that candidate is Dean, and that's why his support is so strong.
Note to Kerry: You will not win over many supporters by using Bush talking points to attack Dean. We think Bush and his handlers are a pack of big fat liars, giving credence to what they say is telling us that you will not have the backbone to take on his lies and call him out on them. For people looking to vote Bush out of office, that is what we want.
I think its still ABB, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't get the best candidate possible.
