Blog4kerry - He's the Real Deal

A quote from former Senator Warren B. Rudman, Republican of New Hampshire sums it up, "I think he's a moderate Democrat — very liberal on social policy and reasonably conservative on foreign policy and defense matters."

When voters go to the polls next year, they are not going to vote solely based on the economy. Wake up, Democrats. You should have learned this in 2002. They are going to want a leader with strong foreign policy and domestic security experience. Before 9/11, Sen. Kerry was on the commission warning Americans that terrorism was real. He is also a war hero, not a rich kid who used his family influence to join the National Guard then conveniently disappeared from duty. Voters may lean toward the Democrats on the economy, but will not "pull the donkey’s tail" unless they trust the President to have the experience to keep them safe.

Salon has another great article today about how to beat Bush in 2004. This article really brought clarity to me.


This is a must read column! Democrats must reverse the tables on the character issue and take it to the Bush/Rove machine. We need to reevaluate our strategy since 70% of the American people view Bush as trustworthy. How is this possible? 1992 was “It’s the Economy Stupid.” 2004 has to be “Bush is a fake.” We can turn the photo-op landing to our advantage by offering the American public a choice between a phony and a real “Commander-in-Chief” with three purple hearts and a gold star.
