John Kerry Knows His Audience

Senator John Kerry has a very moving piece today in the Wall Street Journal Europe: Eastern Europe Needs Our Help

“But as we balance the domestic and global demands of this crisis, we should be warned that, in cutting corners today we risk incurring far greater costs down the road. A retreat into our domestic problems will not only leave us diminished on the world stage -- because our world is so economically and financially interconnected, it may well also worsen our own economic crisis.”

He continues: “And that is why I could not in good conscience vote for our stimulus bill as I cannot abide its “Buy American” provisions.”

Yeah, I'm kidding; of course he never said that last part. While he did vote for the so-called stimulus bill, to be fair, he did have some reservations. Here’s John Kerry explaining his problems with some of the proposed tax cuts in the stimulus bill:

“If you put a tax cut into the hands of a business or family, there's no guarantee that they're going to invest that or invest it in America.

“They're free to go invest anywhere that they want if they choose to invest” The Weekly Standard
