81. He did explain it simply many times - but the press continued asking and
The Republicans played the ad endlessly - The answer was simple and Kerry was right - he wanted it funded and he wanted oversight - 2 things in the first bill (which Bush threatened to veto) and not in the second. In fact, the comment that got Kerry in trouble came when he gave a nice detailed answer to a heckler, then when a few minutes later in the same event a 2nd heckler asked the same question, Kerry said in (regretable) shorthand - "I already answered that, I voted for ...."

It was the shorter answer that gave him the problem. He often gave good concise short answers. The press often took the worst Kerry response against the prepared best Bush reponse - not reporting much of what Kerry said and ignoring the constant inarticulateness of Bush

As to never saying he lied - you said you wanted someone more honest.
