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, Id announce, you know, hopefully its 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 Americas 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, "weve got to have a comprehensive approach everywhere," adding that, "in the short term, I think [the wall] can serve us well."
This does have a familiar ring to it.
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 its 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.
He voted for it before he voted against it.
His wife is African American don'tcha know and she hated this country before she loved it. Might have been the rasins talking, it's hard to tell.
(Denny Crane: "Every one should carry a gun strapped to their waist. We need more - not less guns.")
If you recall my Cousin under the Southern Star we had unkind names for him along with images, but your description is just too apt, he is a total bloody goose.
John Kerry,patron saint of the hopelessly confused.
He is a friggin idiot is what he is.
Someone needs to post the pix of Terezzza holding the brews.
Me thinks she's the backbone of Jf'nK.
Now you're insulting idiots and that's not nice.
John Kerry - What a drip.
He wants to spend a ton of money to buid a fence wait till it is working and then spend a ton of money to tear it down.
I feel so comforted, knowing my junior senator has things well in hand.
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."
And we know what your senior Senator invariably has in his hand...
