In Search of Honesty

Truth. Honor. Integrity.

These virtues are evidently considered old-fashioned and only something to be emulated by the Kerry camp.

Of course, this really isn't suprising from a man who has used an "ends justify the means" approach to politics since he was a young man and lied about his experiences in Vietnam, causing grief and sorrow to countless vets, POWs and their families and others touched by that dark time in America (made darker than it had to by the likes of Kerry).

The ends justify the means when he talks about backing the first gulf war, when he voted against it.

The ends justify the means when he talks about throwing his medals away and he didn't.

The ends justify the means when he says he backs the Iraq war when he was campaigning against Dean, but he is against it when he is campaigning against President Bush.

The ends justify the means when he says on national tv that he never said President Bush lied about Iraq, but he said:

"This administration has lied to us. They have misled us. And they have broken their promises to us. The president promised to the people and the Congress that he would build an international coalition, respect the United Nations' process and only go to war as a last resort. I will tell you that from my war fighting experience, I believe there is a test for a president as to how you go to war. And that test is whether or not you can look in the eyes of parents and say to them, 'I did everything possible to avoid the loss of your son and daughter, but we had no other choice in order to protect the security of our nation,' and I know this president fails that test in Iraq." (Sen. John Kerry, Campaign Event, Claremont, NH, 9/20/03)

This is the man who thinks that we should give the UN control of our foreign policy. This is the man who thinks that saying "I have a plan" means he doesn't have to tell us what his plan is.

Truth. Honor. Integrity.

Not in the Kerry Camp.
