In Speech, Cheney Attacks Kerry's Record on the Military
By NICK MADIGAN and KATHARINE Q. SEELYE

Published: March 18, 2004


SIMI VALLEY, Calif., March 17 In a blistering critique of Senator John Kerry's record on military issues, Vice President Dick Cheney on Wednesday portrayed the Democratic presidential candidate as weak, inconsistent and a threat to the security of the nation....

***

(Cheney)...began a review of Mr. Kerry's voting record, finding inconsistencies in his 1991 vote against the first gulf war and his subsequent vote in 2002 to authorize military use against Saddam Hussein. "Had the decision belonged to Senator Kerry, Saddam Hussein would still be in power today in Iraq," Mr. Cheney said. "In fact, Saddam Hussein would almost certainly still be in control of Kuwait."

He said Mr. Kerry had voted numerous times against weapons systems, but "fortunately, on matters of national security, he was very often in the minority."

In an acknowledgment of Mr. Kerry's speech Wednesday morning, Mr. Cheney skewered Mr. Kerry for complaining that Mr. Bush had not supplied enough body armor for the troops and yet voting against the $87 billion that Mr. Bush sought for reconstruction of Iraq and Afghanistan and equipment for the troops....

1. Senator Kerry has 3 Purple Hearts, 1 bronze star, 1 silver star.
how long did chickenshit cheney serve? Dr. Fear is nothing but a chickenhawk.

I think it is becoming more clear every day to the american people that the Iraq invasion was nothing but a campaign prop for the election.

The repukes are complete evil!

and conveniently misrepresented Kerry's reason for voting against the bill, since it still did not specify that any of the money would be spent for the troops.

Prevaricating evil subhman, Cheney.

Mr. Cheney, I'm sure you planned this war so that your Holliburton secret finances would triple. You got blood on your hands buddy!
