102. Kerry is most definately not for economic anarchy
Look at his work on Small Businesses, look at him many attempts to hold the SBA under Bush accountable. Maybe if you actually looked at Kerry's worrds and his work in the Finance committee and Small Business committee, rather than applying a label and then assuming that anything you think is neo-liberal economics is where Kerry is.

You also said he was neo-con. Kerry was against neo-con type sentiments at least since 1966 - Madeline Albright in her new book quotes from Kerry's Yale speech. There are also archived tapes of Kerry on Firing Line with William F Buckley where Kerry spoke against intervening in other countries on the assumption that if they were like us they would be better off. (This was the 70s and Kerry's opinion on this not commonplace.) His first teacher on foreign policy was his father, Richard Kerry, whose book written in the early 90s (I think) was 180 degrees away from neo con ideology.

In both of these assignments of labels, do you have a quote where Kerry ever said he was one? Your logic is strange - you dismiss his speeches, esentially saying you think he simply says those things - yet you offer no proof that Kerry is not what he has said his entire life he is. Considering you never even met him, that takes a fair amount of chutzpah.
