Hannity's Lies About Kerry, Debunked
As heard on THe O'Franken Factor today.

"Heres a guy that by my count has had six separate different unique positions on the war on Iraq."

Okay. This is just stupid. Kerrys position on Iraq has been totally consistent. Yes, he voted to authorize the president to use force against Iraq. But voted for that in order for Bush to go to the UN and get the inspectors back into Iraq, which was a genuine triumph. But, the president acted in bad faith. Here is what Kerry said about it on Face the Nation on September 14, 2003:

The president promised he would go to war as a matter of last resort. He didnt. The president promised he would build a coalition and work through the United Nations. He didnt. Were paying the price for the reckless way in which this president approached this. Its a failure of diplomacy, and today its a failure of leadership.
Kerry was entirely consistent, and not only that, he was right.

5. Kerry also voted against the $87 billion
because shrub and friends wouldn't tell anyone where the money was going. We now know that contracters are hiring high priced, well armed, well armored mercenaries to protect their asses with the money from government contracts and providing sub-standard food and services to US troops. Kerry was right again.

7. I didn't hear either show, and
I have no idea what "six positions" Hannity is lying about.

Kerry voted against the first Gulf War, voted to support Clinton's justified and measured action against Iraq, then reluctantly supported Bush's invasion, and then voted against the funding of the war due to procedural reasons, although he did earlier vote to support the funding if the costs were taken out of tax cuts for the rich. That's only five. And each one was a nuanced, principled, and carefully positioned vote in the best interest of the American people. Obviously it was a political misjudgment to oppose the first Bush Gulf War and support the second. But he had no way of knowing how each war would turn out and which way public opinion would fall, and he had to vote as best he could. His opposition to the $87 billion funding for the "troops" was necessary to outmaneuver Dean -- who was hammering him on the war -- and had he not made that vote his campaign was probably toast.

I feel Kerry has shown strong leadership and impressive political skill in his handling of the Iraq issue.
