#DNC2012 “Ask Osama bin Laden if he’s better off now than he was four years ago!”
— Senator John Kerry
This was one of the more memorable quotes that Massachusetts Senator John Kerry made during his speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. He gave a speech that called out the former Massachusetts Governor and current Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney on his policies and lack of a clear position and plan for the country. He went as far as to suggest that Romney took his foreign cues from watching the Rocky IV movie.
You know you’re in trouble when the person who was charged with being a flip-flopper when he ran for president in 2004, calls you out as being an even worse flip-flopper.
The recurring thought that I had (as I’m sure everyone else had) as I watched Kerry speak was “Where the hell was this guy in 2004?” This guy could have gotten elected to the White House instead of being a bigger punchline than the punchline that got reelected.
