Kerry blisters Republicans, touts Democratic comeback at state level
By David Ammons, AP Political Writer | August 19, 2005

SEATTLE John Kerry, last years unsuccessful Democratic nominee for president, was back on the campaign trail Friday this time promoting a Democratic resurgence at Americas state capitals as the party attempts to rebuild.

After blistering Republicans on everything from Iraq to health care, the Massachusetts senator said Democrats have an opportunity to rebuild simply by addressing the concerns that affect peoples daily lives energy, transportation, health care and security.

1. Awesome, kg.
The last thing America needs is a second Republican Party.

Isn't that about the truest statement ever?

4. So, John Kerry goes on a working vacation
and he actually works - George Bush* goes on a "working" vacation and he goes into hiding. Which one of those two men is the POTUS?

Thanks for posting this KG. I love it when JK talks tough!

5. here's the Seattle Times link

last four paragraphs:

"We're doing something right" at the legislative campaign level, and the national and congressional candidates will surely benefit, a shirt-sleeved Kerry said in the interview, plowing into a heaping plate of snow crab, asparagus and a thick chocolate shake.

Kerry told his audience earlier that while Republicans dither and practice politics of "nastiness and partisanship," Democratic legislators are showing the right stuff, connecting with people on their front porches and then going to the capitals to fix their problems.

"The states are now the laboratories, much more than before, because of the refusal of Washington to do what's important and necessary. You're forced to spend too much time cleaning up what Washington either messes up or leaves undone altogether."

A lawmaker in the audience yelled, "You tell it!"

7. i'm glad to see he still gets it about Republicans and what they did
Edited on Fri Aug-19-05 10:48 PM by JI7
how they try to avoid discussing these important issues which DO favor Democrats with fear and other things. and that HE isn't the one who needs to change. because i sure don't want him to and he doesn't need to.

8. He gets it.
And I hope Dems are listening.

It's easy to rehash 2004 but Kerry is looking and working toward 2006 - toward the future.

I hope Dems are listening...
