Monday Political Notes...

No better way to start off a week than show Kerry's flip-flopping ;).

Kerry Ready to Invade Iraq - in 1997 that is. When Bill was in office.

Now, please take note of his rhetoric from that year. Listen to how it mirrors so closely this "arrogant" Bush Administration that we have now. Lets face it people, the UN, France, Germany and Russia all had their (monetary) reasons for not wanting us to invade. They were no more interested in toppling the dictator then than they were in 2003. If we'd followed Hanoi John back then, he'd have had to put together a coalition of the willing too. It's not about this admin's failures - it's the FAILURES of our so called allies.

From Boortz this morning:


Yet more evidence today that the standard-bearer for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination has absolutely no political soul, and just makes things up as he goes along. Today's installment? The war in Iraq. Now, you know that Kerry has been both for the war, against the war, for it again, sort of against it and then for it again. What you may not know is just how ready he was a few years ago to do just what he criticizes President Bush of doing.

Speaking on CNN's "Crossfire" on November 12, 1997, Kerry criticized the United Nations, France and Russia for not being tougher on Iraq. Not only that ... he even pointed out that the Clinton administration didn't need UN approval to act on Iraq. "The administration is making it clear they don't even need the UN security council to sign off on a material furthermore, I think the United States has always reserved the right and will reserve the right to act in its best interests." He also went on to criticize the French for not being more helpful, and said that the issue wasn't just about weapons of mass destruction, but Iraq's breach of agreements. In other words, he said the same things then that the Bush administration has been saying all along. Holding Saddam Hussein accountable is only a good idea if there's a Democrat in the White House.

It's too bad for the Democrats that Kerry already has the nomination sewed up. They rushed the process, and now they've wound up with a lemon and no return policy. I guess they can always vote for Nader.

Also from Boortz this morning: (you should really just go read his program notes every morning ;) ).


The Bush campaign is catching heat from an Arab-American group for accurately portraying the truth in a campaign ad. The group is calling on Bush to remove a "Middle Eastern looking" man from an ad that focuses on terrorism. The president of the Arab-American Institute is calling it racial profiling. The Bush campaign is telling them to stick it. Time for a little insensitivity training.

Yeah ... you heard that right. Arab-Americans are complaining because there's a Middle Eastern looking man portrayed as a terrorist in a campaign ad. Using a person of Middle Eastern decent to portray a terrorist is like using a tall person to portray an NBA center.

So we really need to go over the facts here? All of the terrorists on 9/11 were Arabs, all of the terrorists on 9/11 were Muslims, all of the terrorists on 9/11 were "Middle Eastern-looking" men. So, to accurately portray the truth and to represent a terrorist in a commercial, what do you expect the Bush campaign to do? A regular old white guy isn't going to look very convincing as an Islamic terrorist. It would be a tough sell, even with a turban.

A better response to this would be to ask the president of this group why so many terrorists supposedly practice the "peaceful" religion of Islam? Why does Allah tell them to blow up so many innocent civilians? Where is it written that flying airplanes into buildings, blowing up buses and using suicide bombers in busy cafes is peaceful? It isn't, and it's not.

It's time for these groups to worry more about how the terrorists make them look than about how terrorists are portrayed in campaign ads.

All I can do is quote Alan Keyes, "If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and looks like a duck, it's probably a duck."

For My Leftist Friends::
News those on the left who pander to terrorists and rogue regimes don't want you to hear. Iraq is moving forward at lightening speed. Just compare the progress to - oh say, our other friends in the world Americans have died for. Heartening progress in Iraq

And finally, those "leaders" abroad who want Kerry:
And lastly - for now, if you are Kerry lover, you do have friends abroad who want to see you AT THE POLLS voting for the idiot. With friends like these - who needs enemies?
He's the toast of Paris

Seems Kerry speeches are being played over the air waves by that sawed off dictator in North Korea. Yes, we want a President this nut-ball can support! Sure!! When hell freezes over. He sees another appeaser. He may be crazy, but he's apparently not stupid.
Pinning one on Kerry
