Kerry on Meet The Press

I saw this posted on a message forum and thought it was too good not to share.

On Meet The Press Sunday, Kerry had an interesting take on creating his 10 million jobs as planned if he were to become President. Lets keep in mind that he has berated this president's handling of the economy over and over. Even though, we all know full well if Bush hadn't pushed the tax cuts as he did, the economy would be worse off due to the terrorist attacks on our country and the subsequent war on terror.

Senator, again, in the interest of candor and clarity, you have promised to create 10 million jobs...


MR. RUSSERT: ...and cut the deficit in half in your first four years.

SEN. KERRY: Yes, sir.

MR. RUSSERT: If you don't achieve those goals, would you pledge that you would not seek re-election?

SEN. KERRY: Well, it would depend on the circumstances. If I don't because there's a war or something terrible happens, of course I'm not going to make that pledge.

It just proves, only democrats are allowed to take into account wars and disasters when it comes to the economy heading south on their watch. We won't even go into the fact we were already going into a recession at the end of Clinton's term.

Also, a newsflash for Kerry: We are already at war. Does this mean you are anticipating not meeting the numbers of your pledge and already have your talking points ready on why you didn't achieve your promise? If you were to win that is...
