Kerry debates himself and loses.

In a further attempt to pander to the “Anybody But Bush” crowd, John Kerry twists himself into pretzel-like contortions bashing a Bush policy that he only weeks ago touted himself. But don’t take my word for it, just look at what John Kerry, himself, said on August 1, 2004:

Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry vowed Sunday to drastically reduce US troops around the world if he wins the November election, withdrawing forces from Iraq, and possibly Korea and Europe “…force reductions in Iraq would be just a start. I think we can significantly change the deployment of troops not just there but elsewhere in the world, in the Korean peninsula, perhaps, in Europe, perhaps,” the Massachusetts senator said in a series of US television interviews.

Of course, granted, that was an entire 3 weeks ago. We know the world has changed greatly over the last 3 weeks, and any sensible person should realize that times have changed… since early August.
Here’s John Kerry’s take now:

Kerry said the redeployment would undermine relations with U.S. allies needed to help fight in Iraq and in the war on terror. It also would endanger national security as the United States is working to deter North Korea’s nuclear program, he said.

and again:
John Kerry, telling fellow combat veterans he’s their “true brother in arms,'’ said Wednesday that President Bush’s plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Europe and Asia would weaken U.S. security and embolden nuclear-armed North Korea.

and again:
Kerry argued that Bush’s policy would dangerously reduce forces at a time when the nation is fighting the al-Qaida terrorist network in 60 countries across the globe.

If you’re confused, don’t feel bad. Watching this guy twist and turn in the breeze makes me dizzier than a drunk on a tilt-a-whirl. Here’s a quick snapshot of his key points…. see if you can figure out what his position on this issue is:

August 01, 2004 - “I think we can significantly change the deployment of troops, not just there but elsewhere in the world. In the Korean peninsula perhaps.”
August 18, 2004 - “Why are we unilaterally withdrawing 12,000 troops from the Korean Peninsula at the very time we are negotiating with North Korea — a country that really has nuclear weapons?”
Can you imagine what a Kerry administration would look like? Holy cow. I don’t know why people keep arguing that there needs to be a third candidate in the debates…. With just John Kerry and George W. Bush, there will at least be three positions on every issue discussed.
