LAT: Kerry Intensifies Attack on Bush
LA Times ^ | March 18, 2005 | Ronald Brownstein

Posted on 03/18/2005 10:24:45 AM PST by West Coast Conservative

Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), continuing his sharp attacks on the man who beat him in last year's White House race, on Thursday denounced President Bush's budget and his recent nominations of leading conservatives to two high-profile foreign policy posts.

The budget Bush submitted to Congress failed to uphold basic values of "honesty, opportunity and responsibility," Kerry told the Center on National Policy, a Democratic think tank.

In response to a question, Kerry charged that Bush's nomination of Undersecretary of State John R. Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz as president of the World Bank would undermine the administration's efforts to rebuild ties with allies frayed by strains over the war in Iraq.

"Here are two people who come to the jobs quite dismissive of the very fundamental purposes and engagements that those entities have been involved in, and it will be felt in the rest of the diplomacy of this administration," Kerry said.

Kerry's tough words were the latest example of his rapid reemergence as a leading critic of Bush after the presidential contest.

After the 2000 race, Democratic nominee Al Gore did not deliver a speech criticizing Bush until more than a year after his rival's inauguration. Kerry, who has signaled he's considering a second presidential bid in 2008, has been assailing Bush's agenda almost from the moment the president took his hand off the Bible at his second inaugural.

Most recently, Kerry has helped lead the fight against Bush's push to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling. The Senate handed Bush a victory on that front this week, voting to allow the drilling as part of a bill that could not be blocked by a Democratic-led filibuster.

He's totally irrelevant. No amount of posturing or bloviating on his part will make him relevant. He's yesterday's news.

Get a real job Kerry -- it will probably kill you to work an honest day in your life, but try it anyway. (I do not count his military time, such as it was, as a real job, since it was A POLITICAL OPPORTUNITY for Kerry. I am a veteran myself, so don't think I have anything against our military, JUST KERRY.)

No, folks, before you get on me for it, I DO know better than to believe that this crap would actually stop. Kerry apparently thinks he's going to run again for president, which is a joke. Pretty much everyone but him seems to think Hillary will.

Tough as a pussy cat.

Good news he's running again in 2008!!

Be careful making fun of his gigolo status. If he has to actually sleep with that geriatric retard, he's really earning his money.
