Kerry's voting record

Center scores national security votes in 108th Congress


(Washington, D.C.): The Center for Security Policy released today its instructive sixth edition of the National Security Scorecard - covering the 108th Congress (assessing votes conducted up to September 15, 2004) - that is designed to illuminate the voting records of members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives on important defense and foreign policy issues. The Scorecard considers 12 House and 18 Senate votes.

Confronted by enemies bent on nothing short of Western civilization's destruction, the Free World turns to America for leadership in developing the policies that will ultimately defeat these menaces. The Scorecard could not be of greater importance in judging the performance of those in Congress charged with this responsibility.

Interestingly, in the wake of last night's debate on national security and foreign policy matters, among the lowest scorers were Senator and presidential candidate John Kerry (D-MA) (making incorrect votes on every one of the 4 votes he actually cast) and his running-mate Senator John Edwards (D-NC) (who did not vote on five out of the 18 scored).

Take special note of the last paragraph. President Bush is still performing his duties as President while also campaigning. Kerry and Edwards have missed so many votes in the past year that they hardly even register, but still register the lowest on national defense policy anyway...

FYI: Ted Kennedy (D - Mass) scored an 11 out of 100. From Iowa, Grassley (R) scored a 94 while Harkin (D) scored a 12. It is well past time for Harkin to go and I want to be the one that takes his seat from him.

Very interesting... I think that, if you hold an office and are running for a different office, you should respectfully recind your position. You can't be a good state leader if you aren't there to represent.
