Did I Say That Out Loud?

Power Line provides a chuckle:
John Kerry on the campaign trail, in December 2003, before the Council on Foreign Relations:

"I fear that in the run-up to the 2004 election, the administration is considering what is tantamount to a cut-and-run strategy. Their sudden embrace of accelerated Iraqification and American troop withdrawal dates, without adequate stability, is an invitation to failure. The hard work of rebuilding Iraq must not be dictated by the schedule of the next American election.

"I have called for the administration to transfer sovereignty, and they must transfer it to the Iraqi people as quickly as circumstances permit. But it would be a disaster and a disgraceful betrayal of principle to speed up the process simply to lay the groundwork for a politically expedient withdrawal of American troops. That could risk the hijacking of Iraq by terrorist groups and former Ba'athists."

Kerry was against cutting and running before he was for it!

It's as impossible as ever to figure out what John F'n Kerry really thinks about anything, which is why it is an historic blessing that he did not reach the White House. Bush and Rove knew the threat Kerry posed to the U.S., which is why they rigged the elections. It was their duty.

But seriously, all we know about John F'n Kerry is that whatever the conflict, his final answer is to pull out. To paraphrase an old National Lampoon observation, Kerry's father should have "pulled out" sixty-three years ago.
