From the third and final debate:
“In 1990, there was a vast coalition put together to run Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait. The international community, the international world said this is the right thing to do, but when it came time to authorize the use of force on the Senate floor, my opponent voted against the use of force. Apparently you can’t pass any test under his vision of the world.
Apparently you can’t pass any test under his vision of the world. ” — President George W. Bush In The Third Debate
President Bush brings up a good point. Very few people realize that John Kerry voted against the first gulf war, the one that did have international support, even by the UN. That was the same war that Al Gore, as senator, voted for. Bill Clinton even agrees with it. Yet Kerry voted against it.
This is probably why Senator Kerry, the one who has been in the senate for twenty+ years, hardly ever brings up his senate record. It is because if the American public realizes what his voting patterns were, they’ll realize how liberal and out of the mainstream he is. If I wanted to be president of the United States as bad as Kerry does, I’d hide my senate record too.
