Kerry is too kind

It is true, John Kerry is a liberal weenie. If he weren't such a nice guy - and if he had the same disregard for the truth as the other guy, well then he could make it all sound so much worse. But I don't think that liberals should wait around complaining that their candidate lower themselves to the standards of the opposition - it is our principles that make us liberal. So let me give some not nice facts. When we look at private sector jobs, from 2001 to 2003, 2.3 million, let me say it again, 2.3 million private sector jobs were lost. Sure, as a good liberal, I should count the uptick in jobs we've had in 2004, but some of that is seasonal, and, hey folks, 2004 aint' over yet, so don't count the chickens. On to the graph.
