Kerry Flip Flops


Kerry is becoming infamous for his ability to take both sides of issues. His most glaring is:


  1. Voting for the Iraq war.
  2. Voting for $87B in war funding.
  3. Voting against the same $87B in funding for the war.
  4. and then complaining that the soldiers did not have the body armor to be provided by the $87B appropriation.

And amazingly

  1. Kerry accused Dean of flip-flopping on the war issue - CNBC Capital Report Transcript - December 11, 2003


Not to let us feel excluded, John Kerry takes both sides of the Second Amendment. While explaining that he is a hunter and supports the Second, he also supports every gun control (now labeled gun safety) bill that comes along. And not only does he say that there is no reason for civilians to own 'assault weapons', but he owns one. The following is from the October 2004 edition of Outdoor Life (page 82):

So, not only does Kerry vote for every gun control measure that comes along (see Voting Record) and push everyone else to do the same (see March 2, 2004), he owns one of the very guns we should not be able to own. For more on this article, go to Outdoor Life.


There are a number of good sites and articles which expand on his 'dynamic' positions. I do not wish to duplicate other's efforts. I will only say, "See for yourself".

If all of this seems confusing, don't worry. There is a single, underlying theme to his support. He supports what the audience of the moment supports. Ultimately, his stands are a reflection of audience positions and not personal belief. Knowing what he truly believes can only be seen in his votes, maybe.
