Don't Be Mad

Don't be mad at him. For once, John Kerry is almost correct, as he assesses the political realities of the moment.

“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.

If voters paid attention, the country wouldn't have been kidnapped by the socialists, Massachusetts would not be ten for ten with Democrats in congress, and John Kerry would not get more than 12 votes each time he runs for reelection.

“I think a lot of the anger today - while it’s appropriate because Washington is broken - is not directed at the right people,” said Kerry... Kerry added that voters should be mad at stonewalling Republicans and “big money” in politics instead, referring to a bill blocked by Republicans Thursday that would reveal corporate and union leaders who fund big-bucks political ads.

He's wrong about the stonewalling members of the GOP - voters are aware of them and pleased with them. Voters should be angry at Democrats - and Republicans who've gone along with them rather than stonewalling.

He went on to blame the legislative logjam in Washington, D.C., for fewer federal dollars sent to the state.

Kerry almost got it right.
