"Larry, couldn't see where you got that quote of yours from"
It was a link within your link, duck. I haven't checked all the cites, but I presume they are accurate and it is true that Kerry voted nay. And I do not deny that others did as well, and given the utility of the cited systems it is good they did not prevail, don't you think?
I don't know if it is good or not, Larry, since I don't know what exactly was in those bills. It seems to me that if a defense appropriations bill does not pass that the people who proposed it must go back and redo it. Do you honestly believe that a vote against an appropriations bill is vote to abolish the military?
I think it's time to give up on this nonsense. I'm sure you can see by now that it was creative interpretation by the Republicans of Kerry's record. Even if it's your guy doing the distorting, you ought to at least recognize the distortion.
