Kerry seeks common front with Bush, AFP
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 03:14 PM by corporatewhore
WASHINGTON: US Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry has sought to present a common front with President George W. Bush on terrorism and the Middle East, but was rebuffed as someone lacking credentials to lead the nation in trying times.

The conciliatory remarks came on Friday as opinion polls showed the Massachusetts senator was badly trailing the president on the war on terror, Iraq and other foreign policy issues shaping up as possibly defining elements of the current election campaign.

"We share the same goal of total victory," Kerry declared, addressing an annual convention of the Newspaper Association of America. "And you can count on this: No matter who wins the presidential election, the terrorists will lose."

He insisted he had differences with Bush on some of the strategies his administration was using in trying to hunt down members of the al-Qaeda terror network and other Islamic extremists seeking to harm the US and its allies.

1. So he's doing the DLC thing
Not good news. He would gain more votes if he had a clear exit policy, IMHO.

2. So India wants Bush who wants to outsource...
No surprise about that.

If Kerry is going to support and continue Bush's policies, then people are going to conclude that there is very little reason to vote for him when the original is running. The fact is that we want, no, we NEED to get Bush OUT in November. What we don't need is to replace Bush with a copy of Bush.

5. AFP is a French news agency. The Times of India merely carried story.
l'Agence France-Presse (AFP) is one of the oldest news agencies in the world.

6. India is carrying it because it reflects what they
hope for. I used to think India exotic, interesting, intriguing. My view of India has changed since then for the worst. This issue has done a lot of direct harm to my family.

Corporations who outsource are the lowest of the low and the politicians who support that policy will never get my vote.

7. Nonsense!
That's like saying that by carrying out a story from the BBC one is endorsing Tony Blair.

Don't let your personal feelings cloud your judgment.

:tinfoilhat:

BTW, blame the American shareholders of the corporations that outsource.

If you really want to make a change, call for the repeal of NAFTA. More jobs have been lost because of NAFTA than through outsourcing.

Who voted for NAFTA??????
