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."

More again of my posts from Dan Conley's site

Dan and Rashomon, I agree with your assessment that many people will vote on how the war is going. (Regardless of whether their interpretation of the events are accurate) However, people will forgive Bush for the war if he starts to move soldiers out quickly or is able to create the appearance of winning. However, if the Democratic candidate appears weak on foreign policy, people will still vote for the President they believe will "act" in their defense even if wrong. Ask McGovern...
To Dan's point, that the "Democratic Party to state simply and emphatically that the Iraq War was a mistake," Rove will pose this series of questions in the general election.

"American people, you know there are bad people out there to get you right?" Heads nod... "American people, would you rather have a President take action on your behalf even if it turns out to be harder than we thought, or a President who would leave each country to their own doing?" President who takes actions... "American people, George Bush will take action even if requires more sacrifice than we thought. Howard Dean doesn't have any answers, he wouldn't have got the inspectors back into Iraq and left Saddam to his own devises." More nodding...

Americans better have a gut feel that the Democratic nominee will act strongly on our behalf on foreign policy and military issues or Bush will be elected.

Kerry needs to preemptively pose this question to Dean in a debate and not let him off the hook. How would Dean get the inspectors back into Iraq? Rather than Kerry defending his own position which will become self-evident, Kerry and others should attack Dean's inconsistent position.

We know Rove will pose it... Yes, Kerry position had nuance, but perfectly consistent until recently (with his vote against the 87 billion which I blame some of the poll watching resume seeking leeches he employees).
