John Kerry: Going It Alone

From Kerry's Senatorial website:

Throughout our history, we have forged powerful alliances to defend, encourage, and promote that idea around the world. Through two World Wars, the Cold War, the Gulf War and Kosovo, America led instead of going it alone.

A news release from 2004:

The cost of the President's go-it-alone policy in Iraq

From MSNBC in 2004

Kerry answered Bush’s attacks calmly but sternly, accusing Bush of “choosing a tax cut over homeland security” and “going it alone in Iraq.”

Now in 2006, during the Bolton hearings:

BOLTON: It's the nature of multilateral negotiations, Senator.

KERRY: Why not engage in a bilateral one and get the job done? That's what the Clinton administration did.

BOLTON: Very poorly, since the North Koreans violated the agreed framework almost from the time it was signed. And I would also say, Senator, that we do have the opportunity for bilateral negotiations with North Korea in the context of the six-party talks, if North Korea would come back to them.

Too be fair, the nimrod said we should have bilateral talks with N. Korea in 2004, as well. The man is all over the place, constantly contradicting himself. Of course, liberals love to have one on one talks with dictators and extremists.

Since Bolton has been mention, how sad is this Salon article, entitle Revoltin' Bolton?

After a year as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton has still not gone to get a decent haircut. He showed up Thursday at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee looking as shabby as the last time he testified, with an unruly cushion of graying locks flopped across his forehead and bunched over the nape of his neck. Combined with a walrus mustache and glasses that kept falling down his nose, he looked like "The Muppet Show's" Swedish Chef applying for a job in the Foreign Service.

Typically, fashion and grooming are not grounds for criticism in politics. If they were, then dozens of leaders — from Dennis Hastert to Dennis Kucinich — would never have made it to Washington. But with Bolton, it is different: His style is a major part of his act. For a diplomat, his disregard of fashion comes across as studied and intentional, not accidental. "His hair was so poorly cut, it bordered on rude," a Washington Post critic opined of Bolton's last appearance before the committee.

This is really the best that liberals can do. Slurs about his hair. And they wonder why they keep losing elections.
