The Smarter of Two Evils?

Is it just me, or is this the essence of the Kerry Campaign? It is disgraceful:

1. He votes for the Iraq resolution, then criticizes the President for not doing a good job;
2. He votes for the PATRIOT ACT, then criticizes John Ashcroft's methods of enforcing it.
3. He votes for No Child Left Behind, then thinks it's underfunded (although federal spending on education is far larger now than its ever been.

Senator Kerry, if the success or failure of a policy or law depends on the competence of the people enforcing it, the problem is with the law, not the people. You think if only the right people were in charge, things would be fine. But what about your successor, or his successor?

The more power given to government, the more likely it will be mismanaged or abused. Yet, that's all Kerry wants and has ever voted for: more and more power to the federal government and especially to the Presidency.
