How about abortion? When Kerry nods toward the Vatican and says he believes life begins at conception, then, while winking to the pro-aborts, says he can't impose his "articles of faith" on others, does anyone believe that the protection of innocent life remotely approaches an "article of faith" for him? Does anyone pick up the slightest inkling that Kerry is troubled by the killing of babies in the womb?
Do you think there's any love lost between Kerry and the military? He has never withdrawn his institution-wide slander nor apologized for it. He did everything he could to undercut our military, its morale and its mission in Vietnam, and he has done exactly the same thing with Iraq. When he criticizes its performance in Iraq every other day, while saying he respects, honors and supports our troops, does anyone believe he's sincere? Well, I guarantee you his military-loathing base doesn't, nor do many of the troops themselves.
What about that evil deficit? When Kerry rails against the president's unbalanced budgets, does anyone detect a scintilla of conviction that he intends to tackle the problem? He would spend our money like a drunken sailor and everyone in his dependency constituencies knows it -- or they'd be complaining.
How about his misspoken pledge to support judges who are neither liberal nor conservative and who would not legislate from the bench? Do you think his activist-promoting Democrat colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee are buying that one?
And if he is really sincere that his faith will guide his every action in office, why are the radical secularists uniformly supporting him?
Do you think his antiwar supporters are the least bit troubled when he puts his war paint on, puffs out his chest, and says he'll hunt down and kill all the terrorists?
Kerry's biggest challenge in this election is to woo the gullible class just enough not to make his nutty base think he might be serious. If that fails, it will have to be election mischief and litigation.
