Kerry takes 457th position on Iraq

Senator John Kerry always ready to say something different is once again against the war in Iraq.

Democrat John Kerry accused President Bush on Monday of sending U.S. troops to the "wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time" and said he'd try to bring them all home in four years.

White at Harvard in the mid 1960's Kerry gave speeches about being against the war in Vietnam. Then he volunteered for action. Then once he came home was once again anti-war.

Back in '97 Kerry was stumping to invade Iraq, he voted to authorize the invasion of Iraq in 2002 but then voted against spending any money on it. After the no vote on funding he went into the Democratic primaries calling himself an "anti-war" candidate. But at the DNC in Boston he draped himself in the flag and stated that his 4 months on a small boat in Vietnam made him better prepared to finish the fight and win the war than Bush. After the convention he even stated knowing now what he knows he would still voted to authorize the invasion. But that was last month today it's the "wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time". I wonder what his position will be on Nov 2nd?

Kerry's numbers peaked back before the Democrats convention. He was slowly losing ground all summer until right before the Republican convention when polls started to show Bush taking a lead. Now after the RNC in NY Bush has a 7 to 11 point lead over Kerry depending on the poll. So if the election were today Kerry'd get wiped off the map but the election is not today. Kerry has seven weeks left and 7-11 points can be made up in that time. Let's say it's the start of the 3rd quarter and Kerry is down 24 - 3. It's not panic time but he needs action. The question is if pretending the worlds most powerful and fastest growing post industrial economy is in ruin while beating the "anti-war" drum is the right plays to call.

Of course right about now Chris Matthews would ask me if I actually thought Kerry was a football team.
