John Kerry finally stepped up to the plate… Check out this article for more fun and political games. Kerry proved his strength to me with the way he’s handled the constant attacks by the Bush campaign– like a duck… calm on the surface, yet paddling like hell underneath. Then, once the time was right, the man strong enough to lead this nation took off his kid gloves. Hell yeah.
Here’s some excerpts from Kerry’s recent speech:
“I’m not going to have my commitment to defend this country questioned by those who refused to serve when they could have and by those who misled America into Iraq.”
“Let me tell you what I think makes someone unfit for duty. Misleading our nation into war in Iraq makes you unfit to lead this country. Doing nothing while this nation loses millions of jobs makes you unfit to lead this nation. Letting 45 million Americans go without healthcare for four years makes you unfit to lead this nation. Letting the Saudi royal family control the price of oil for Americans makes you unfit to lead this country. Handing out billions of dollars in contracts without a bid to Halliburton while you’re still on their payroll makes you unfit to lead this country.”
“That, my friends, is the record of George Bush and Dick Cheney, and that only begins to scratch the surface. This president has misled American workers and misled the American people.”
