John Kerry says that his loss in the election of November 2004 was because of events that took place in September 2001.
In other words, he lost the race more than three years before the election was held.
That his defeat was in the bag before he won the nomination, before the first primary, before he announced his candidacy, before he even decided to run.
That is absolutely typical of John Kerry. One of his defining characteristics has always been hindsight — his whole platform was based on either “I would have done just the opposite of what President Bush did” or “I would have done the same as President Bush did, but better” — and often it was both, depending on when he was asked.
I am surprised he admitted it, but I have to say I shouldn’t have been. John Kerry spends so much time talking out of his ass, it’s no surprise he’d finally slip and say he looks out of it, too.
