Jon Cary is Back

WASHINGTON (AP) - John Kerry says Republican John McCain doesn't have the judgment to be president. If that's the case, then it's probably a good thing McCain rejected overtures from Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, to form a bipartisan ticket and run with Kerry as his candidate for vice president.

Kerry had no kind words his Senate colleague Sunday, accusing McCain of poor decision-making on everything from backing tax cuts for the wealthy to making support for continuing the U.S. military presence in Iraq the centerpiece of his presidential campaign.

"John McCain ... has proven that he has been wrong about every judgment he's made about the war. Wrong about the Iraqis paying for the reconstruction, wrong about whether or not the oil would pay for it, wrong about Sunni and Shia violence through the years, wrong about the willingness of the Iraqis to stand up for themselves," Kerry, who supports Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, said on CBS' "Face the Nation."

"If you like the Bush tax cut and what it's done to our economy, making wealthier people wealthier and the average middle class struggle harder, then John McCain is going to give you a third term of George Bush and Karl Rove," the Massachusetts senator added, echoing an Obama campaign talking point.

How can someone who married Teresa Heinz possibly criticize anyone else's judgement about anything?

Hey Othelmo, you are right about Kerry being an underachiever when it comes to judgement. But marrying the ketchup queen was probably his most outstanding smart decision. How else would a bozo like this earn a living doing real work? If Kerry likes taxes so much he should get Teresa to sell all those municipal bonds she collects $3 million in interest on each year and give the money to the government. That would be a good start to ending his hypocrisy.
