John Kerry's Better Name
"I have come here today to reaffirm that it was right to dissent in 1971 from a war that was wrong. And to affirm that it is both a right and an obligation for Americans today to disagree with a President who is wrong, a policy that is wrong, and a war in Iraq that weakens the nation," Kerry said to a standing ovation Saturday at Boston's historic Faneuil Hall.
Kerry's speech came 35 years to the day after he testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to call for an end to the Vietnam war.

Kerry also blasted those who question the motivation of retired generals who have recently called for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
"That is cheap and shameful," he said. "How dare those who never wore the uniform in battle attack those who wore it all their lives."
So let me get this straight. Anyone Kerry likes (those who criticize the president) has every right to voice his opinion, but anyone Kerry doesn't like (those who disagree with the generals calling for Rumsfeld's resignation) cannot voice his? How one-sided can you be?
Senator Kerry, you only want to take a position that fits your agenda. Rather than call you Flip-Flop Kerry, I think the better term is Rubber Kerry. You'll bend any way that fits your agenda.
