Kerry is getting blasted by Republicans, mostly out of context, for referring to terrorism as a nuisance.
“We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives but they’re a nuisance,”
“As a former law enforcement person, I know we’re never going to end prostitution. We’re never going to end illegal gambling,”
Now, I really don’t think Kerry is referring to terrorism as a “nuisance” right now. I think it’s clear that what he’s saying that he’d like to supress terrorism completely, but is conceeding that it will probably never totally disappear.
My main issue is that he’s comparing this stuff to gambling and prostitution. So, we have no social liberals running for office? As a social liberal myself, I want to see gambling and prostitution made f’n legal. Apparently the supposed liberal candidate thinks they’re a nuisance – on the order of terrorism going forward, I guess.
