After watching the first Presidential debate I have come to the conclusion that John Kerry is not a Flip-Flopper. Kerry says the Iraq War was a mistake, and he says our troops are not dying for a mistake. Kerry says the world is safer with Saddam Hussein out of power, and he says the invasion of Iraq has made the world more dangerous. Kerry says he would be tougher than President Bush on Iran's quest for nukes, and he says the U.S. should provide nuclear fuel to Iran in exchange for the Mullahs' promise to stop developing nuclear weapons. Kerry says the U.S. should not confront rogue states unilaterally, and he insists that the U.S. should negotiate unilaterally with North Korea. Kerry says the Iraq War is a diversion from the War on Terrorism, and he says he will persuade more nations to send troops there. Kerry says he would use pre-emptive war, and he says he would submit America's defense to a "Global Test."
John Kerry is certainly no Flip-Flopper. That would mean Kerry changes his positions. What John Kerry actually does is hold contradictory positions simultaneously. Kerry is a Fence-Straddler, and on November 2nd John Kerry richly deserves the logical fate of a man who straddles fences.
