This just serves as a further illustration of the disingenuousness of the Dem. leadership. They KNOW there is nothing to their allegations, but they figure if they can get a few swing voters to wonder, it's well worth spreading libel. They infuriate me!! BTW, your link's a little augmented.

Thanks, Lenise. I fixed the link.

I can accept that people's views can change over time. And I can accept that politicians will "speak to their audience" and put their best foot forward.

I cannot accept when candidates cannot be straightforward on the major issues they will have to deal with, if elected. Kerry just comes across increasingly untrustworthy, the more he opens his mouth.
