Not only that, but he calls the U.S. a "pariah" on foreign grounds. What a coward (ala The Dixie Chicks) and what an idiot.
Switzerland - Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry slammed the foreign policy of the Bush administration yesterday, saying it has caused the United States to become “a sort of international pariah.”Seriously, even a diehard liberal has to be worried about John Kerry, especially if you're throwing all your energy behind winning the White House in 2008. Because John Kerry is a threat to any Democrat running for President in 2008 and you're a fool if you think that relying on your liberal base is going to win you a national election, much less a local one (ask Ned Lamont).
The statement came as Kerry responded to a question about whether the U.S. government had failed to adequately engage Iran’s government before the election of hard-liner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2005.
Kerry said the Bush administration has failed to adequately address a number of foreign policy issues.
“When we walk away from global warming, Kyoto, when we are irresponsibly slow in moving toward AIDS in Africa, when we don’t advance and live up to our own rhetoric and standards, we send a terrible message of duplicity and hypocrisy,” Kerry said.
“So we have a crisis of confidence in the Middle East - in the world, really. I’ve never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today.”
You see, besides Republicans, there are moderate, conservative and independent voters who take something called national security very seriously. Instead of relying on the latest idiocy to come from Rosie O'Donnell's fat mouth, they understand that 9/11 was only 6 years ago, that Al Queda and all the other jihabists around the world will always a threat and the idea of coddling terrorists who have no problem killing innocent children isn't cool to them. So while they may not always agree with President Bush, they feel more comfortable with him leading or nation than they would a Democrat. Don't believe me, than all you have to do is remind yourself that Republicans have won 5 of the last 7 Presidential elections.
With that said, if I'm Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama I want John Kerry not only on a leash, but locked in the basement and chained to a heater, as soon as possible, at least until January 2008.
