    I was just foolin around on vote-smart.org and noticed something that shocked me (though it probably shouldn't have)...

    SENATOR JOHN FORBES KERRY REFUSED TO PROVIDE ANY
    RESPONSES TO CITIZENS ON ISSUES THROUGH THE
    NATIONAL POLITICAL AWARENESS TEST


    SENATOR JOHN FORBES KERRY REFUSED TO PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION WHEN ASKED TO DO SO ON 23 SEPARATE OCCASIONS BY:

    MSNBC
    CBS News
    Cox Newspapers
    Knight Ridder
    National Journal
    MTV
    New Hampshire Public Broadcasting
    Tucson Citizen
    St. Paul Pioneer Press
    Portsmouth Herald
    Nashua Telegraph
    Iowa Public Radio
    Ames Daily Tribune
    Cedar Rapids Gazette
    Iowa City Press

    Geraldine Ferraro, Former Democratic Congresswoman
    Michael Dukakis, Fomer Democratic Congressman
    Bill Frenzel, Former Republican Congressman
    Jim Leach, Republican Congressman
    Richard Kimball, Project Vote Smart President
    hyah


    I really feel that Kerry is trying to ride the "I'm not Bush" wave too long.

    He won't even give a firm stance of where he stands on anything.

    All I've heard him say, as far as actual plans go, is that he wants to get rid of tax-cuts.

    This begs the question.. If elected... What the hell is this man gonna do? It can't be good for us to have a sit-on-his-ass president in times of economic crisis.

    I want a candidate that actually stands for something other than not being someone else...

    I really don't know who I'm going to vote for.. It could be anyone (other than Bush of course), but until Kerry actually tells us a legit reason to vote for him, he'll continue to lose the likeliness of my vote.

    I'm glad someone else said what you did. Whenever I ask that question, apparently it's not a legitimate question. Seriously, if I was a swing voter, what would I know about Kerry other than he doesn't like Bush? He hasn't defined himself at all. If he doesn't do it soon, Bush will, and it will be over for Kerry.
    Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

            Uh, Mellanby,

            I've been PWNED...

            Still begs the question.. What is it that Kerry stands for?

            I think we all have an idea what Bush wants to do (which is why I would never vote for him), but as for Kerry..........

              Boy, it's even more convincing when you put it in ALL CAPITALS.

              Somehow I doubt that Geraldine Ferraro and Michael Dukakis are demaning Kerry fill out some questionnaire.

              But if you want to find out Kerry's positions on the issues, you can always go here:

              www.johnkerry.com

              P.S.--Mellanby, the next time you start feeling like a Republican, calm down, take a deep breath, and wait a moment. It should pass. If it doesn't, lie down. Perhaps take an aspirin. Only visit a doctor when you actually think you might VOTE Republican.

                Mellanby,

                Kerry's on your side.

                Just ask him.

                (He's on mine too)
                And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

                  It appears he's running against himself.
                  Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

                    I think he has to show them something. I think he's in a tough spot, if he talks, a lot of people won't like what he says, but if he doesn't talk, he's not going to sell any of the swing voters.
                    I hope Bush doesn't have to show them anything, because he has nothing to show. Well, nothing outside of a ballooning deficit, a bloody war, and 2.2 million jobs lost, that is.

                    Oh, and this notion that Kerry isn't saying anything is, of course, totally false.
