(Newser) – Maybe John Kerry was for Mitt Romney before he was against him, but count the Massachusetts senator as definitely not a Romney fan now. Kerry took a moment out of an appearance on Meet the Press to specially blast the former governor of his state, reports Politico, saying, "There are few people I've met in public life who have changed on as many issues as he has. Every major touchstone of American politics—from abortion to guns to war to God to gays, you name it," Kerry said. "People will make their own judgments about that."

As for Kerry's own infamous flip-flop: "I did it as a matter of principle," he said. "I'll defend that until the day I die. He's going to have to defend his positions throughout this race if he's the nominee."

mud slinging is sorta pointless when both of these gargoyles involved are lumped together in the "never,ever gonna be president no matter how hard you try" category.

This piece of liberal democrat garbage went on Morning Joe, the most Obama regime democrat place on the planet, this morning. As usual the entire crew stayed silent while he bashed the Repubicans for 5, maybe 6 minutes. Then Mika asked him a democrat sound bite question to which he flubbed the rehearsed answer and I assumed it was over. To my surprise Willie G. asked the piece of garbage just what the democrats brought to the table. Kerry's stated for the record " Oh I'm not going to go into detail now, I've had enough of a rough week over that ". The always slow on his feet Kerry then, and only because he was caught off guard, spilled the beans, let the cat out of the bag, spoke the truth about why the democrats are the TRUE party of NO. He stated the democrat position of the past nine months was to have rich people lose their Bush Tax Plan status, while the only thing offered by the morally bankrupt obama regime/democrat party was the promise of a possible $700.00 B savings from trimming the fat from ObamaCare if and when it ever becomes a reality, THAT'S IT ! The democrats only offered the prospect of a made up figure if and when ObamaCare is ever realized as the law of the land. Mika immediately dismissed him before anyone could ask a follow up question

John Kerry: "It takes one policy-changing, wishy-washy flip-flopper to know another one and I say "This guy is a flip-flopper!...' "
