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."

Real Democrats don’t raise taxes on the middle class. Back when some candidates were calling the national Democrats “Bush-lite”, those same Democrats in Congress were making sure the Republicans were not leaving out tax-credits for the poor and middle-class refunds by shaming the Reps in the media. Remember, the $600 refund check for the middle-class was proposed by Democrats then adopted by this President. Any candidate who goes to the middle class right now and asks them to pay more in taxes will lose in the general election 60-40, even against a weakened Bush.

We must have a candidate who doesn’t publicly propose campaign issues on a whim. We need a candidate with enough experience not to box himself into positions that sound good to activists at the moment, but will “kill” Democrats chances to take back the White House.

Remember the mistakes Clinton made in the first two years of his Presidency just from being inexperienced. We love him now, but when he took office Democrats controlled the House and Senate. Because those early mistakes, we lost the House in two years and the Senate later to Republicans.

We need a President with the experience to lead the party from the “git-go.” I heard Sen. Kerry speak to a small group of progressives and I was very impressed that he had deeply thought out how to use bully pulpit in the first two years of his Presidency to take back the language the American people use “from the Tom Delays” in this country.
