The Two Faces

Of John Fonda Kerry.

Likely Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry slammed President Bush over the weekend for not supplying U.S. troops in Iraq with enough body armor to protect them from attacks.


Addressing a Texas audience on Saturday, the Massachusetts Democrat said it was "shocking" that "tens of thousands of other troops arrived in Iraq to find that ? with danger around every corner ? there wasn't enough body armor."

Naughty President! Making those poor soldiers suffer! Actually, I'm rather upset that many military family members are forced to buy body armor for their loved ones in the military. But is it the President's fault?

But Bush campaign press secretary Scott Stanzel told WABC Radio's Steve Malzberg on Sunday that Kerry "voted against supplying body armor to our troops when it mattered most" ? when President Bush included the request as part of the $87 billion appropriation for the Iraq war in 2003.

RNC Chairman Marc Racicot confirmed the Kerry vote against body armor, telling ABC's "This Week" that the funding bill "did everything from provide hazard pay for our troops in Iraq to body armor for our troops in Iraq."

So John Fonda Kerry flip-flopped on an issue yet AGAIN? WHO WOULDA THUNK IT?!?! Actually, given Kerry's record of voting against the military time and time again, I can't say I'm surprised. And since he's a member of the Donks, I can't say I'm surprised at his hypocricy and idiocy, either.
