    JOHN KERRY said yesterday that Iraq was "the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time." Translation: We would be better off if Saddam Hussein were still in power.

    Not an unheard of point of view. Indeed, as President Bush pointed out today, it was Howard Dean's position during the primary season. On December 15, 2003, in a speech at the Pacific Council on International Policy in Los Angeles, Dean said that "the capture of Saddam Hussein has not made America safer." Dean also said, "The difficulties and tragedies we have faced in Iraq show the administration launched the war in the wrong way, at the wrong time, with inadequate planning, insufficient help, and at the extraordinary cost, so far, of $166 billion."

    But who challenged Dean immediately? John Kerry. On December 16, at Drake University in Iowa, Kerry asserted that "those who doubted whether Iraq or the world would be better off without Saddam Hussein, and those who believe today that we are not safer with his capture, don't have the judgment to be president or the credibility to be elected president."

    Kerry was right then.

    Just another instance of John Kerry's flip flopping on the issues. Give it a few days and he'll flip flop again.

    A double minded man is unstable in all his ways, the saying goes.

    I can not even try to imagine what it must be like to flip - flop on issues as Kerry does, for the entire country to see, on a daily basis. I am astounded that he would think the populace is so stupid, that he is blatantly and boldly wholly unaccountable for his words on record.

    Let me try to make one more comment. A lot of men will cheat to win something, or lie to accomplish some goal. But in the race for the office for the Presidency one who lies and decieves to get it, is then the Commander in Chief of the most powerful nation on earth. Kerry troubles me. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    There's something to be said about always telling the truth - you don't have to try and remember the lies you've told!! /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
