WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, who lost decisively to President Bush in an election focused on national security, said Tuesday the country would be "far better off" with his proposals for Iraq and the military. "I think my security proposals for the country were smack on, dead on," Kerry said. "I think that had they started to do the things I proposed on Iraq when I proposed them, we would be far better off today. And they are in fact now trying to do some of the things that I proposed.
The Massachusetts senator, meeting with defense reporters, discussed legislation he plans to introduce to permanently increase the size of the military and boost benefits for military families. It's largely the same proposal that Kerry put forth during the campaign. Several similar proposals also are being floated in Congress.
Reflecting on the presidential campaign, Kerry said he had proposed "a far more effective way to make America safer." And, he said, he was "way ahead of the curve" on several areas - like the position of an intelligence chief, the creation of the commission to investigate the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and an increase in the military death gratuity - while "the president dragged his feet."
"Americans accepted that I could be the commander in chief," he said. "What they were unwilling to do was shift commanders in midstream."
Somebody call a WHAAAAAAAAMBULANCE! What a winer Hanoi Kerry is!
Smack on, dead on, huh? I think he's on smack and we'd all be dead if he as in office.
Sour grapes, uh... I mean raisins!
Lets see, Hitlery, sKerry and whatever wack job far lib they find to run in 2008. The rat party is imploding before our eyes.
Note to Senator Kerry: If you're so f*cking smart, why aren't you president?
Somebody help! He's stuck on one note....ME-ME-ME-ME-ME-ME-ME-ME-ME
Questions for the junior senator from Ma:
Has the current Administration done anything with which you agree?
How do we know you didn't steal "your" ideas from the Administration?
What a Jackass loser He should also quit the Senate..
You're never going to be the President, Kerry. Get over it and "move on" already, you pathetic loser.
Uh, you misspelled "records".
I think he better check back with Ohio....he may have something.....maybe that Ketchup Kween of his can fund a new recount?
I hear crickets.
Armed with what? SPITBALLS?
And you wonder why Rush Limbaugh has often said that liberals are the most kooky when they're out of power. And yes, they are really out of power now.
Ta-ray-za's gonna b*tchslap him when she hears this.
To this day, no one knows what Kerry's proposals were.
He's just pissed that the Gin and Raisins broad dropped the sKERRY from her name.
Uh...WHICH country? France? Germany? Russia?
Certainly not this one...as spoken by me and the other 62+ million voters that rejected this war criminal elitist snob.
And by the way, how would we know what your proposals are, when you still haven't told us what they are--and everything you seem to "propose" that makes sense, the President and this Administration are already doing.
That's why, John Fing, you are sitting in the cheap seats, and the President has the floor.
