Sen. John Kerry - the Republican? In order to win votes, Kerry's latest shift has been to claim Republican positions. A few weeks ago, Kerry's position on Iraq was a time frame for getting the troops out, now his position is a Republican position: to win the war on terrorism and kill the terrorists. While Kerry's 20-plus year record in the Senate is to raise taxes and increase government bureaucracy, now he says he wants (again a Republican position) to cut taxes for the middle class. What will Kerry's positions be next week?
What's even more troubling about the Kerry/Edwards ticket than the flip-flopping, are the blatant and apparently intentional dishonesty and shameless demagoguery. For both Kerry and Edwards on different occasions to mention to a national audience that one of their opponent's daughters is a lesbian goes beyond the bounds of good taste and appropriate behavior.
John Edwards has even said that the late Christopher Reeve could have walked again had it not been for President Bush's "ban" on stem cell research. Never mind the truth, that there is no ban, and that President Bush is the first president ever to provide for federal funding for stem cell research.
