John Kerry Supports, Opposes Border Fence
NewsMax ^ | 22 May 2006

Posted on 05/21/2006 5:27:10 PM PDT by Aussie Dasher

Sen. John Kerry joined most of his Democratic colleagues last week in voting to build a wall along 370 miles of the U.S.-Mexican border.

But he now says that after the wall is built it should be taken down as soon as possible.

"I voted for it," Kerry acknowledged Friday while speaking to the New England Council breakfast.

But in quotes picked up by the Boston Herald, the Massachusetts Democrat added: "If I were making the long-term decision, I’d announce, you know, hopefully it’s a temporary measure, and we can take it down as soon as we have enough people" to guard the border.

Kerry said beefing up the number of border patrol agents "should be America’s goal, absolutely and positively." He noted that he'd introduced an amendment to the Senate border bill that would add 3,000 new officers.

"But in the temporary," he said, "we’ve got to have a comprehensive approach everywhere," adding that, "in the short term, I think [the wall] can serve us well."

The guy is a 100% blowhard flip-flopper. When commenting about the flooding here recently he had the same pompous tone. It's everyone's fault but mine.

"hopefully it’s a temporary measure, and we can take it down as soon as we have enough people"



i.e. after he's let in enough illegals to tip the elections to the Dems, he'll shut the door.

"I voted for it but I don't think we really need it." French Boy as usual, tries to have it both ways.

Me thinks Kerry is a prime case of the internet exposing an individual's stupidity.   These buffoons can run, but they can no longer hide.

What a shocker! My former Senator voted for something he denies supporting when questioned about it.

Next thing you know he'll vote against a gay marriage ban and then say he doesn't support gay marriage. Oh wait, that already happened. (DOMA, 1995)

I liked what Rudy Giuliani said of Kerry at the Republican Convention in '04: Something to the effect of: "This explains the need for John Edwards' two Americas--one where John Kerry can vote for something, and another where he can vote against it."

John Kerry,patron saint of the hopelessly confused.

The liberals refer to that as "nuanced".

If you ride a motorcycle and crash without a helmet, you too could become "nuanced" under their definition.

...we can take it down as soon as we have enough people to guard the border.

Will the Democrats take down that wall/fence outside of the White House when they win the presidency again in some distant future?

Sends the wrong message that we have watch the people's house from afar. < /sarc >

Where there is NO FENCE he is for one and if one is put up where there were none, he is against it.

However, where there is a fence presently he is against it's existence, but if it were torn down he would not support that!!

That is what I call KERRYCLEAR thinking!!

He wants to build the wall so that he can campaign on a platform of tearing it down.

Yea, like she grew up in the most lucious of colonial pandering in Mocambique under Portugues rule, and studied at the top university (WITS) in Apartheid South Africa. Very much doubt she would want to live under black rule in South Africa or Mocambique.
