WASHINGTON (AP) - John Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee-in-waiting, challenged the Bush administration Saturday to reimburse the families of U.S. troops "who had to buy the body armor" needed for protection in Iraq.
"If I am president, I will be prepared to use military force to protect our security, our people and our vital interests," the Massachusetts senator said in the Democrats' weekly radio address.
"But I will never send our troops into harm's way without enough firepower and support."
This is the same man who voted against almost every significant weapons system proposed over the last thirty years. I am seriously angry by the blatant and unconscionable electioneering. While I toyed with the idea of supporting a Democrat due to Bush’s seeming indifference to the plight of the common man, I see no point in supporting Kerry. We can not count on a man who would lie so openly in the public face, Bush may be unconcerned, Kerry is openly contemptuous of our ability to reason for ourselves.
