Kerry Accuses McCain Of Poor Judgment

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senator John Kerry is sharply criticizing John McCain, whom he once courted as a running mate in 2004.

Kerry, the Massachusetts Democrat defeated by President Bush, says McCain has been wrong on every judgment he's made about the Iraq war. Kerry tells CBS' "Face the Nation" that McCain doesn't have the judgment to be president.

Kerry says the man he offered the vice presidency to in 2004 "has changed in profound and fundamental ways" that Kerry finds "really surprising, and frankly upsetting." He says McCain has gone from maverick to someone who flip-flops in hopes of winning the presidency.

A McCain adviser says it was McCain who stood up to the administration and urged President Bush to send more troops to Iraq to help control violence.

    Now this is credible information...the liberal poster boy who lost because not even the democrats are not even that stupid. The news media is driving this since most of us could care less of his opinion of anything. We get to hear from "I did not lie" Bill too. Shortly hear from "I invented the internet" not watch the major networks. They love these Bozos...

    Ask yourself this question. If Kerry even considered McCain as reported, why do the Dems and media try to paint McCain as a conservative? To draw support away because McCain is actually a moderate? And why is Obama trying to portray himself as moving toward the middle when his VOTING record is the most LIBERAL in the Senate. A skunk can paint his stripes but he still smells like a skunk!

    Kerry is one sorry human being! A traitor during war, and one who threw his self endorsed medals over the fence at the White House, is spineless. Kerry has money invested in big oil, and has the nerve to call someone a flip flopper. Give me a break you socialist coward.
