Citizen Smash - The Indepundit has posted a flyer from John Kerry’s 1984 Senate campaign. In it Kerry himself outlines exactly how wrong he has been on an amazing array of defense programs.
Citizen Smash, as a marine who was on the ground in Iraq last year, has analysis of just how devastating Kerry’s policies would have been to our troops there.

Kerry's response to his own record is telling: He argues that these are attacks on his patriotism. Talk about a tune already tired after two weeks. Kerry must lose votes every time he dodges questions and responds with his whine. If he can't handle tough questions from reporters, how's he going to handle al Qaeda?
The weight of the paper in Kerry's paper trail should already have sunk his boat. The only thing keeping him afloat is a sea of desperate Democrats who want to belive they can field a candidate that will beat George Bush on defense. On defense.
