John Kerry Smacks “Candidate McCain”

John Kerry was terrific last night. My favorite part was:

I have known and been friends with John McCain for almost 22 years. But every day now I learn something new about candidate McCain. To those who still believe in the myth of a maverick instead of the reality of a politician, I say, let’s compare Senator McCain to candidate McCain.

Candidate McCain now supports the wartime tax cuts that Senator McCain once denounced as immoral. Candidate McCain criticizes Senator McCain’s own climate change bill. Candidate McCain says he would now vote against the immigration bill that Senator McCain wrote. Are you kidding? Talk about being for it before you’re against it.

Let me tell you, before he ever debates Barack Obama, John McCain should finish the debate with himself. And what’s more, Senator McCain, who once railed against the smears of Karl Rove when he was the target, has morphed into candidate McCain who is using the same “Rove” tactics and the same “Rove” staff to repeat the same old politics of fear and smear. Well, not this year, not this time. The Rove-McCain tactics are old and outworn, and America will reject them in 2008.

Full video of his entire speech after the jump:

  1. Exceptional quotes from John Kerry’s convention speech. Too bad he didn’t learn the lessons of the 2004 election while he was still a candidate but he sure showed he’s figured it out now.

    Hopefully you don’t mind me linking a post from my blog here (if you edit it ou or delete this comment I’ll understand) but I think Kerry goot a terribly raw deal from the media last year compared with the treatment of McCain and I’ve written on that:

    Also, Glenn Greenwald recently wrote on a similar discrepency regarding Kerry and McCain.
