The National Review Kerry Roundup...

Jim Geraghty rates him as a Terror Warrior. He says his "War on Terror" speech was:

... a string of logical fallacies, half-truths, and smart-sounding criticisms followed by generic, vague pledges to do better.

Ouch! Read the whole thing.

Myrna Blyth, former long-time editor of Ladies Home Journal, points out that Kerry is losing women voters.
Not a good thing for a democrat.

Jonah Goldberg points out how Kerry is downright Nixonian... Here is a highlight:
The most Nixonian of Kerry's traits is his obsession with secrecy and conspiracies. In August, Kerry announced he had a secret plan to get America out of Iraq. When George Stephanopoulos said it sounded like Nixon's secret plan, Kerry responded with Nixonian combativeness: "I don't care what it sounds like. It's truth. I don't care what it sounds like."

OK, fine. But at the same time, Kerry has accused Bush of having more secret plans than SPECTRE from the James Bond movies. As the blogger Slings and Arrows has documented, Kerry has accused Bush of having secret plans to privatize Social Security, slash social services, wage nuclear war, fix oil prices at the Saudis' behest, cut VA Benefits, cut education funding, send jobs abroad, and, of course, bring back the draft. On Monday the Associated Press reported, "John Kerry told voters in America's Dairyland...that President Bush had a secret plan that would hurt milk producers after the election."

Kate O'Beirne reminds us what most Vietnam Vets think of John Kerry.

Brian Riedl reminds us that John Kerry never met a tax hike he didn't vote for.
