If we hearken back to the year 2004, we can remember the music of Alicia Keyes, and whatever it was that Snoop Dog was doing, Pro football players still stood for the national anthem, the Red Sox finally broke the curse and won the pennant, and John Kerry was pandering like a….well like the liberal he is. 2004 was also the year that Kerry made his infamous comment about voting for an 87 Billion dollar appropriations bill before he voted against it.
For those who can’t (or simply don’t want to) remember, this was the year that John Kerry was attempting to win the Democratic Presidential nomination. It was also the year when he offered up the “for it before I was against it” gem in an attempt to explain his way out of hypocritical comments that he had made concerning his support for the Iraq war. The Washington Examiner had the details
ON TODAY’S Good Morning America, John Kerry defended his “I actually did vote for the $87 billion, before I voted against it,” comment: “It just was a very inarticulate way of saying something, and I had one of those inarticulate moments late in the evening when I was dead tired in the primaries and I didn’t say something very clearly.”
That excuse didn’t fly however, as the Examiner article explained
The problem: According to the March 17 Washington Post, Kerry made the comment at a noontime appearance at Marshall University, two weeks after the Democratic primary contest had ended….Kerry’s inability simply to smile about his inept formulation and move on, and his attempt instead to offer a (false) excuse, is perhaps more telling than the original statement.
As we all know, that didn’t end to well for Kerry.
Fast forward to the present, and we have Joe Biden performing his own “yes, no, maybe” moment during the first debate of 2020 in answer to questions about his support of the problematic (to say the least) Green New Deal. Townhall.com framed Biden’s conflicting answers as follows
Many were quick to point out that the Biden campaign website doesn’t exactly line up with Biden’s comments.
Of course, climate change
nutcase proponent Alphabets Cortez quickly condemned Biden’s remarks, reaffirming her dogged belief that the Green New Deal is the only way to save the planet. Just kidding, she rolled over like the little puppy she is and tried desperately to carry the Biden campaign’s water. Responding to Kellyanne Conway’s comments, Cortez tweeted
We can only imagine the voices of Biden’s advisors screaming at him through the wire he apparently wore at the debate, “No Joe, No Joe, IT’S A TRAP!!”
