Bush flip flops on drinking, Bible
I was bored, so I was scanning through the GOP list of Kerry “flip flops” and this one stuck out:
Round 17: Flip-Flopped On Leaving Abortion Up To States
Kerry Used To Say Abortion Should Be Left Up To States. �I think the question of abortion is one that should be left for the states to decide,� Kerry said during his failed 1972 Congressional bid. (�John Kerry On The Issues,� The [Lowell, MA] Sun, 10/11/72)
Now Kerry Says Abortion Is Law Of Entire Nation. �The right to choose is the law of the United States. No person has the right to infringe on that freedom. Those of us who are in government have a special responsibility to see to it that the United States continues to protect this right, as it must protect all rights secured by the constitution.� (Sen. John Kerry [D-MA], Congressional Record, 1/22/85)
Kerry, in 1972, a kid at the time, more or less, had a slightly different view on abortion. Well, is it a flip flop, actually? Can’t he believe that it ideally should be left up to states, but it is the law of the land with Roe vs. Wade (which was not ruled on for a few months) and it should be protected from attacks to repeal it completely?
Anyway, I thought, what was Bush doing in 1972. Well, he apparently was something of a heavy drinker and non-religious. Around the same John Kerry supposedly flopped (1985 vs. 1986) he became a sober born-again Christian. What a flip flopper. He just can’t stick to his beliefs.
