That was funny. Isn't it also funny that there is no need for editing when it comes to John Kerry. His comments are consistently conflicting

I saw that on comedy central a few months ago. It's pretty funny. I like that you can view it on their website for free, that's nice.

There's absolutely no need to edit Bush either. I could make a graph of Bush's stances in just a few short hours that looks exactly like that one.



Without regards to Kerry or Bush, has it always been reguarding as a bad thing that politicians change their mind on topics? Certainly we don't want them to flip flop their opinions whenever it suits them, but if they change their stance on a topic once during their career that could be a mark of a weak politician but also a mark of a strong politician and that should be supported.

Kudos to you, mikie (sincerely). I absolutely agree with you. Circumstances change. I bear no ill will toward Senator Kerry for his protest of the Viet Nam War. Those were tough and confusing times. I am sure if he had it to do all over again he would not have taken the route he took. I would publicly thank him for his military service to this country as I do every vet I meet (thanks buddadragon). We learn from mistakes, otherwise they are not worth making. Let's forget about who was for or against it, heck it's been thirty plus years. Bush's priority during his campaigning was education...that all changed when 9/11 happened. Circumstances alter actions. Everyone has the right to change his mind, as long as the reasoning is justifiable. My problem with Kerry is that he seems to change his mind based on either popular opinion or the company he is with or better yet, what will get him into the White House.



Just my opinion, I am probably wrong.

I think the same can be said for any number of politicians in either party.

I do believe all people, even politicians, should have the leeway from others to develop over time. Man, if I got boxed in based on what I said or did 15 years ago... Yeesh. What matters to me is what direction people move in.



Listening to the old Bush, I was thinking, "Hey, he's not so bad." The new Bush strikes me as somewhat evil. That's not progress. Kerry has evolved into more of a politician, for obvious reasons, and he's not my favorite of the (former) democratic contenders (by a large margin), but he's certainly evolved in a way that is far more acceptable to me than Bush.

Are you sure he even had something like a priority? I think he's more like a free-form poet whose creations shouldn't be interpreted literally.

Hehe, I was a bit puzzled about that!
