John Kerry, this morning from the Senate floor:
The President does not have a monopoly on patriotism, and this is not a country where only those who agree with him support the troops and care about defending our country. No matter what the President says, asking tough questions isn’t pessimism, it’s patriotism.
Well said, senator.
Thanks to The Democratic Daily
for the transcript.
If only he'd said it during the campaign. He and Edwards make the effort now, but their silence was deafening, earlier. I still respect him, but he needs to be highly visible now. He needs to sacrifice his Senate seat if that's what it takes to take the Dear Leader down. He and Edwards need to stand up like those creatures in "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and POINT - call 'em as they see 'em.
Agreed, there's not much else Kerry can do in the Senate. Time to call it as he sees it, and prepare the way Russ Feingold.
